for joggers, slow runners, run/walkers and newbies
Run of luck yesterday did indeed run to another shiny new 5k PB of 25.16 I think sub 25 is definitely on the cards in the next couple of months, will have to get along to a local time trial in Leeds soon. Last nights tea was also excellent, i had venison for the first time in my life. Sorry to all the veggies but it was delicious. I can confirm that Mr Ellie is a great cook. Anyway, must get to work, got to pick him up on the way, knew he was after something!
(((Mini Pud))) (((Yums))) (((everyone else)))
How sweet. Shame that the deer had to die though
I'm planning a trip to Leeds for a 5k. I'll arrange something with NSC this weekend and let you know the date.
XB, i did try not to think about Bambi!
That would be great for the 5k. I may still do the Ilkley race btw, in fact it's quite likely. I don't fly off to Greece 'til Wed.
Morning - awww what a nice way to start the day with Ellie's happy post (as XB points out it's probably not being celebrated so enthusiastically by the deer population but we can't all be winners)
Pud - it always gets manic before a move - 50 yards or 50,00 miles. If it wasn't manic over moving something else would crop up to cause you stress. ((((((Mini Pud)))))))
Off to a school - see you later
Well done on your PB, Ellie! Well done, too, on finding a nice man who can also cook
I'm waiting for the gas repair man to fettle the gas fire - it caused much alarm when it set off the Carbon Monoxide monitor.
Hopefully he'll pitch up soon cos I've got an 8 miler planned.
Podds - good news on the time off, whatcha gonna do?? if it was me, I'd be gardening and playing the piano - things I like to do but don't get time to.
happy holiday Snaily <<waves at slime trail>>

I had a long day yesterday, about 6 hours driving -yuk. The open day thingy was OK, particularly the biscuits and lunch, but the chap after lunch was a bit dull and I got that sleepy thing going on, was fidgeting, yawning and desperately trying to keep my eyes open, awful. We had soome video conference calls with Bangalore - jolly chaps they were. tried not to watch the footy, but couldn't resist the penalties, poor John Terry , poor Chelsea, I hope my Dad's OK, he tends to get overexcited!This morning I have plodded - hoorah, nice and slow, I agree with you Chuggy, it's like a treat afterwards, it's just the getting out there that's tricky. And I'm working at home today - yipeeeee
Well nabbed, XB!
Gas man is here, banana is digesting, hopefully I'll be on the road by 1100.
Hope the gas man is able to sort things out without too much expense.
Line yeee haaaaa! Slap my thigh!
(((jnr Pud))) seat belts on buses especially for kids should be a legal requirement. When we lived in Wales junior Tubs used to go to school in a minibus - I couldn't drive then, didn't have lessons until I was 26 or so - skint! They didn't have seatbelts but that was the mid eighties.
(((chuggy))) lovely for you having C1 back soon. Mr Tubs new boss in London is Dutch, Mr Tubs did tell me which bit he came from but I will need to write it down so I can remember, but he says he's very nice and a good guy to work with.
Feeling a bit better. Had a niggling sore throat for about a week, kept thinking it was the start of a cold but not progressed. Generally feel under the weather so have ex biked 3 miles, trotted on the treddie for half a mile and hauled some weights up and down. Strawberries and Manx Davidsons vanilla icecream haven't helped really!
<Holds bowl out for strawbs>
The plan - 10 mins w/up, 8 miles at 9:20 pace, cooldown
What actually happened - 10 mins w/up, 8 miles at 9:17 pace, cooldown
And the whole hour and a half was niggle-less.
And, even better was the plate of ham and scrambled eggs I've just scoffed.
<fills XB's bowl with strawberries & a large pile of ice cream> Leaves remainder in WaisterFridge
Good run, even more so when it doesn't hurt
That'll do for me, Tommy.
I prefer clotted cream but I'll not be so rude as to decline the offer.
well it's that old Thursday dilemma. r*nnong group is calling but the voices in my head, a bit like Amy Winehouse, say no, no, no
