I'm working on the element of surprise - or then again I may simply poison him!

TRAC will have a new member...in a few years!!!  Baby Thomas Daniel, 6 lb 3 oz came in rather a hurry yesterday afternoon     Not sure I'll be making next Thursday's session though Mark !!!

11/01/2008 at 17:42
Congratulations Cinders and Mr C - welcome Thomas Daniel. Take care of yourselves and enjoy!
11/01/2008 at 17:45
Mark - spotted, but the cut-offs are pretty tight ?!
11/01/2008 at 19:18

yay CONGRATULATIONS  Cinders   You are excused training next week

bo-bo did not see anything about cut-offs on the website?  we can have a chat about it tomorrow.  Nice and wet in Thanet at the momemt  see you in the morning

Congratulations Cinders, Mr Cinders and little Cinders, well done to you all. Is marathon running as close as a man can get to child birth? I don't wish to be heaped with lots of abuse from ladies but it would seem to me that there are lots of parallels. Ladies tell me all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I look forward to seeing you in the morning Mark so that you can tell me all about this train journey that PSC so heartily recommends!

Blimey bo-bo just taken another look at the website way too fast on the cut offs for me.  Think ill go back to planning a tripple in Oct.

Cliff face you are a brave man see you in thre morning

11/01/2008 at 19:33

Mark - it was a forum on here that alerted me to the cut offs, I am consoling myself with the fact that everyone thinks the cut offs are too fast - I would like an least an extra hour on each one LOL - there is always the chance that if everyone thinks it they may alter.

see you both in the morning

Thanks BoBo and MF7 for the run this morning I really enjoyed the company and wasn't the weather just great. I attempted to run home and made it 5 miles before I lost the will to live and had to call my own personal emergency service. I was really pleased with the fact that I had got in some decent mileage.

As for the pace I am not too sure about. It would seem that there are a number of factors in pacing. There is a nice normal conversational pace; there is a tempo pace and then there is the MF7 pace. This involves starting off very quickly and then gradually getting even faster. the strange thing is that despite all protestations it doesn't get any slower!!!!!!

I have had my midday nap so i am now fit and raring to go for the next ten minutes before I collapse again. This running lark is good for you isn't it?

12/01/2008 at 15:22

I thoroughly enjoyed the run - thanks to both of you and the "TRAC Saturday club "

Glad to hear you got home safe and sound Cliff, and trust you enjoyed your tuna sandwich. Midday nap?!? - much more inviting than the ironing pile. PSC has been dispatched on squash duty - due back in the next 30 minutes, so will look busy ..... put the kettle on

love the new pace - just going out for a quick MF7 mile!

12/01/2008 at 16:46

Congratulations Mummy and Daddy Cinders!!!! Brilliant news!

Bobo and CF now you know why MF7 is barred from running with us - he doesn't do it deliberately I'm sure but ....!!!!

12/01/2008 at 17:07

Congratulations to all the Cinders!

I  too was out this morning and put in 10 which I was quite happy with, see some of you tomorrow at the Cross Countryt.

13/01/2008 at 20:48
How did the cross country go? It was a bit overcast and chilly. I am glad that I watched my son though, he batted really well, but I did have a guilty thought for you all. I hope that the Fosters hangover wasn't too bad (actually I am hoping that it was, how mean am I?)

Cross Counry was fantastic fun.  Was stationed at the second dike and had such a great time dragging people out and informing them that the next one was the real deep one

Cliff and bo-bo sorry if my pacing was a little eratic !  maybe next time, assuming your not banning me as well, I will stay at the back and get one of you to set the pace.  I had a very nice time saturday evening It was lovely to see so many of our TRRAC friends there to help celebrate my birthday.  The hongover was not too severe Cliff, sorry to dissapoint

I enjoyed marshalling the cross country. I have now got a couple of good examples of sadism and massochism. The massochist comes up to our dyke and asks how deep it is; the sadist says ankle deep and watches them plunge up to their knees.

14/01/2008 at 12:51
Only joking on both parts Mark, I had a really good day, it was terrific to immerse myself in running conversations. I can't say that Mrs CF has been hooked though!
