Can i just say that after having spent Sunday marshalling the Duathlon, in what I must say was fantastic weather, PSC and MF7 are definitely, if there ever was any doubt before, certifiable!  It looked Hell out there, well done the pair of you.

PSC I have a set of drain rods for your bathroom if you need them.

Planet Thanet - The duathlon was great yesterday - many thanks to all the marshalls and the organisers for putting on such a great (but really tough) race

thanks CB - yes, i think we probably are.  i have never ever been so muddy!  But well done you too for standing there all that time in the cold - all of the marshals were fab.  I'm also with J3ff - that was the toughest race I have ever done.  Makes Quicksands look easy.

I had a bit of an "incident" at my marshal point. Two girls on horses rode up from behind me, went past me and then suddenly found about a dozen runners lumbering in their direction. They pulled the horses up to a standstill but one of them got "spooked" by the runners going past and unsaddled its rider and tried to run off. Meanwhile some of the runners had to come to a stop as the horse was across the path.

Apparently one of the girls later moaned to another marshal that we shouldn't be wearing bright yellow as that upset the horses, couldn't we wear black instead! I know what, why don't we all wear camouflage and then nobody can see us!

I hope the horse was OK!

That's odd CB, was out in the car just before xmas when a string (right word?) of horse riders all went past and they were all wearing yellow flouro jackets!

bathroom has survived - the rest of the house however has a mild swamp perfume!

sorry to disappoint Mark - would really love to submerge myself in the small puddle PSC has described! but Sunday morning belongs to PSC (and Ashford Tri Club)  will however be running with the ladies again.

Cinders - how are you feeling? Must be close now. 

07/01/2008 at 22:23
Very close now bo-bo, due in 2 days and showing no signs of appearance !!!

You will need to show your other half how to post a message in here to tell us when junior has arrived.

good luck cinders !  If you get a move on you could still make it for Cross Country on Sunday

bo-bo PSC said you might be up for a little longer run this week.  I will be seeing Barbara on Wednesday and hope to arrange for a few nutters (well myself and Cliff face) to meet up in Ramsgate and run the 7ish miles over to join in with the Saturday morning run (it seems I am allowed to join the girls this week as the current Mrs F is not running, due to Cross Country duty on Sunday).  If  your up for that I will let you know what gets decided Wednesday ?

Without wishing to sound like an honorary girlie I could be doing with a run on Saturday too so would maybe consider that option, but the idea of 7 plus 7/8 is possibly too much for me just yet. I too will be marshalling on Sunday and will be doing the Dartford and Canterbury 10s the next two Sundays, so it will be February before I am back down to Derek's.

About that other thing we spoke about on Sunday, there are a total of 85 running clubs I could find in the London area so if you could ask tomorrow about me emailing them that would be great.

08/01/2008 at 10:16

CB  I am sure you would be welcome to join the Girls for their Saturday morning run I think I am only banned because the current Mrs F thinks I make her run too fast lol !  It is only a couple of us lunatics planning to run over to the run as most will be looking to do the usual 8 ish.    I will drop you a line after the meeting wednesday when I have spoken to Barbara.

On the other thing we spoke about I have emailed Miggs to get it put on the agenda for wednesday eve (correct protocol and all that)

08/01/2008 at 20:19

Cinders - "buttons" will make an appearance in his/her on time, hope you are not going stir crazy in the meantime. Suddon urges to clean the bathroom should not be ignored!

Mark - sounds good, BUT how fast do you make the current Mrs F run? I aim for 10 - 11min/mile on long runs. Would love to join the nutters - will look out for post/mail after your Wednesday meeting.

CB -  shush don't tell Mark but there were 2 non-girls last week! I can vouch for how welcoming the group were - see you there.

09/01/2008 at 08:48

All I need to find out now is where is "there"?

Bo Bo your pace is similar to what I do when training, so I should be able to keep up. Mark has very kindly given me a training programme for a Spring marathon, but it got off to a bad start when I forgot it was supposed to start on Monday, so I have missed my first day already! My biggest problem is going to be the discipline required to get changed and get out after coming home into a nice warm house from a two hour commute.

PSC You must have a similar problem to me, how do you motivate yourself to do midweek training?

09/01/2008 at 09:11

WHAT ! youve missed a session already Bill TUT TUT 

bo-bo  I usually aim to run my lsr at about 9-10min/mile ish but part of my idea of joining in with the Saturday "girlie group" is that some people who want a longer run can join us nutters for some of the run but have the opportunity to run a little slower if they want to when we meet up with the other group.

I will post after tonights meeting to let you all know what the plan is

Mark - doesn't sound too uncomfortable (speed), awaiting details - time/location and shoes (I assume mostly off-road if joining the ladies?). Have semi organised a friend to take Jnr to school as I anticipate crack of dawn breakfast and sunrise start
