Snaily, the day will come when you're popping out a 14 miler and we'll all be saying "there you go, we said you could do it!"

Snaily, not that much over a year ago, I couldnt do 1.4 miles ... dont be nervous! its just a bit further down the line

It worries me when people say casually oh I did 20 or 24 miles or more, I really only just get to the end at the moment, and cant see myself saying the same let alone doing the same for quite a long time! I'l get there eventually tho I hope

Nice run Westie

Just back from club presentation evening and not as painful as I was anticipating it to be - even if I did miss an evening in in my PJs watching the new episode of NCIS

Re the LSR (long slow run) - the wisest thing any experienced runner / coach said to me decades ago when starting out is that you should finish your LSR feeling you could do another couple of miles - if you don't you've probably done it too fast

And on that wise note I'm off to bed - oh how I wish for a lie in!

The "snow" has been coming down on and off since lunchtime but it's that sort of almost icy snow so it isn't settling - just travelling horizontally in the lovely easterly.........driving was like being in a star trek film when all the stars turn into streaks as they go to warp speed

No will review my "condition " end October to see that..........................

1) I am still breathing
2) I am still moving
3) I can bend down and put my shoes on
4) I can see to tie my laces
5) I can do 5k faster than Spence can do a half
etc etc.

23/02/2013 at 08:03

My hands were frozen. Garmin time 29.55 but awaiting official one.
Now home and warm.
I have a dilemma tho, bike shop have phoned to say youngests bike is in. Do I tell him which means a 45 min drive to shop etcetera or not. Bearing in mind it's still snowing.....

It is SO BLIDDY COLD here that even Mr C isn't going out. And he's wearing a jumper. And he's wearing SHOES instead of his Birks!!! I tell you, the world is about to come to an end.....!!! 

So a gigantic gold star for Spence and Amada and anyone else who actually went out in these temperatures.  Respect!

Spence, I've heard of people eating their hats, but apparently you are so surprised by the prospect of the WAISterfest that you are planning to take things one step further??

Spence wrote (see)

I saw a lovely skirt I might treat myself to for the post race meal 

No accounting for tastes, I suppose... 

It's C1's BD today---she's 30!! My clearest memory is the day after she was born Mr C came to hozzie, and he sat and looked at her in her cot, and she looked back at him.....and as I watched, the noose in her tiny hand tightened around his neck.....and she's had him right there ever since!  

We are going for lunch in the village to celebrate, but I have a very sniffy sneezy cold now so not much else going on. Think I will read some lovely 13th century law reports, so soothing! xxx

(Needless to say I am sooo jealous of everyone going to Stratty! Wild thoughts of working for a 10 k and going over to join you have passed through my head, but there is just so much going on in the family right now that I'm not sure it feasible, either timewise or moneywise....)
