Hi PB.

Sorry to hear of all your traumas! I hope everyone gets better soon, including your PC!

As for Brighton, well the training was going awful where I fell out of love with running and it became a bind to drag myself out or to the gym.

But the good news is, that despite complaining of a twisted ankle and my running tights being on the floor by the washing machine waiting to be washed (I Fabreezed them, disgusting I know!), I went out for a run last night. Not sure how far but I was out for 41 mins (precisely) and I ran up the lovely hills of Rainham, one of which was about 10mins long!

So I'm in lurve with running again and don't feel like a running fraud anymore.

Can't wait for the weekend and Brighton yay!

Caz - Those Rainham hills! I used to cycle up them every evening home on the way home from school. They looks like nothing in a car, but they become strangely steeper when approached on a bike (or on foot)... good effort! And good luck in Brighton!

Thanks Lizzy! See you on the 13th in the pub?

PB, I'm only running again on Wednesday, then rest up to Sunday, I run better that way, otherwise my legs are too tired and ache when I run.

My excuse for being lazy anyway :)

Cheers, I think so too!

Still planning on getting along to Brighton and even a bit optimistic on pace after a good tempo run at the weekend.

Tim, am I right in thinking that once the spots are out, then the patient is no longer infectious? Otherise I'll want a 10 metre exclusion zone to keep your sprogs away from mine.

Neil, will the newest neilruns be there too?

I have a small army of fair weather fans. If it's a nice sunny day, there will be me, the ladywife, three sprogs (inlcuding the newish arrival), mother in law and father in law. If it's raining, just me :-(

My eldest (4.5) asked on the way to school this morning if there will be a children's race that she can enter. So at least one of them's keen.

Tim, with your recent rest and back-to-back tempo runs over the weekend I predict 41.45 for you. That should give you enough time to finish, shower, bask in the congratulations of your family, pop in to the nearest pub, buy a pint of Guiness and carefully carry it to the finish line to be ready on my arrival.

And mine Neil, we're in the same time bracket.
11/11/2002 at 11:20
Except a cool Bud for me please PB.
11/11/2002 at 11:20
Make that two, I'll be thirsty! :)
11/11/2002 at 11:21
I think he'll need a tray.
11/11/2002 at 11:23
Caz, are the post or pre run meeting details sorted yet?
11/11/2002 at 13:57
Neil, I think it's

Night before - Cafe Pasta 8pm

Before Race - 10am at the entrance to Palace Pier

After Race - When you get there I suppose, pub at the end of the pier (not the middle one) called either Horatios, or The Pilot.

Caz, last time I went in there the pub at the end of the pier was a real perfect. Hopefully I'll be able to tie the sprogs to a post outside and nip in for a beer.

I did 13 miles at lunchtime :-)
11/11/2002 at 16:52
I take looooong lunches
11/11/2002 at 17:13
Blimey - 13 miles in a lunchtime??? That's just showing off! ;o)
11/11/2002 at 17:17
Yeah, Neil, you show off!

I struggle to do 13 miles weekly mileage.

I did say I was a lazy bunny :)
