Podds, I meant to say, yes I have paid for the RideLondon thingy, I did that before I cancelled my card along with ordering contact lenses and frontline 

I am looking forwards to spring next week.  Another long bike planned for Sunday I think, Podds are you coming up to MK just for the day next weekend?

Meldy, they went to the cinema yesterday so hopefully will be gone by 11
They see now watching a video after a couple hours of 'sleeping bag wars!'

Looks like another beautiful day here!

I have ironing to do....once I get out of bed!

I best wishes to Pippi and her family

I have another bit of bling to hang up with the rest (they are all hanging off the door knobs of my wardrobe), and a nice shiny PB to go with it.

I ran/walked 5:1 all the way and finished in 2:22:55, just over 5 minutes faster than the last HM I did. (BTW, that one (Cardiff) was featured on Casualty last night, I had no idea at the time that I had the potential to be a TV star as well!)

It was bliddy freezing out there and the wind on the exposed coast areas was biting. I really felt for the Marshalls who were there!

I'd like these boys to go home now!!!!

Damn.  Forgot about the atherletics ... not that i'll be at home in time to see them !

03/03/2013 at 15:52
well run spence, and marshalled podds, and excellent pb dragon!

i'm in first class on the train although this is weekend first class not proper first class - so no first class lounge, had to fetch my own tea, no free biscuits, no proper milk, and the couple opposite are eating haribo, reading nuts magazine and seem to having some kind of burping competition...

Thanks for the good wishes. We found out a bit more - he was hit by a lorry as he was walking home. What a stupid waste. The family are in the Midlands, and there are lots of supportive messages between them on FB (the modern world, eh?) lots of happy memories and posting photos of the good times they had.

Meanwhile, on a happier note ...

I went out very early (for me!) for my long run - 11 miles on the dot! That's quite a lot on top of my 13+ miles walking yesterday, but it felt good although I had leaden legs for the homeward bit! Cold and misty when I first went out, hardly anyone around, but by the time I started for home, the sun was breaking through, the sands had turned from grey to gold ... a different day altogether.

11 miles is good Pippi, probably just what you needed today

You are right, it is such a waste of a life

03/03/2013 at 16:41

Oh Pippi how tragic

Well done on the 11 miles

If I can leave it till later, I'd think about it (there is a Wirral half planned instead of the Liverpool Marathon - October?), but a half means I have to train quite seriously and I don't always want to have to make myself go out! 10K is a lot safer (and shorter).

03/03/2013 at 18:38
(((Pippi)))thinking of you and family

Well I did my 10k at tri show, Sandown park race course. Got there fine. Registered then realised it was probably going to be a race full of real fit fast triathletes then me. Slight panic.

Set off , out into car park , back past all the stables which was nice then out along road which runs alongside track. Nice gentle downhill for a few km but unfortunately then had to turn round and go back uphill. It was a struggle. Walked a bit . 2 lap course so had to do bliddy hill again. Finished not quite last in around 1.04 and bit. Nearer 1.05 prob but waiting results.

Got changed after and wandered round show. Few freebies, one top and pair if gloves purchased and then stopped at harvester on way home. Think I prob ate all calories I ran off and more on free energy bar samples in show.

Now home, bathed and in pjs

Hiya Melds

Just up for the day for MK

Looks like we'll be arriving around 0830 as we are supposed to register 90 mins before - I should have some time to spare before A finishes and then we are having lunch with her sister before risking the M25 on a sunday afternoon drive home!

Just done my RideLondon paymen too and seen the time Mr P put me down I unearth my bike I think!!

What time did you put?
