Hello all

Pegg - great start, well done. Enjoy dinner

SBerry - well done on the 10K

I did 5 miles this morning, lovely morning. Have just been for a walk with OH!

Jump on a plane quick Sberry - it's already in the oven!!  I can't wait though, it smells awesome.  I loved his "can you come into the kitchen a minute please?"

"ok, what do you need me to do?"

"just be there...I've not done pastry before"

And of course, he did it just fine .

Good going MWW with your run and walk to clock them up early in the year, then you can relax later on!

Sorry Pegg couldn't get the flight hope it turned out better than my roast beef, then again it couldn't turn out any worse!!!!

Well done on your run and walk MWW - hope things are still going well

I hurt today - had boxing last night and I think he was trying to kill me The plan for today is to just keep moving, have a feeling if I stop I won't start moving again

Happy 2013 everyone

Hope you're all well.... I smelt the talk of food and found my way onto here ... You're not allowed to talk of beef wellington though Pegg because I can't have it (although Mr T makes a mean vegan version of it and he's just as good at it as he is the beef version). I saw your piccy of it on FB... very good!

I'm a bit pleased with myself as I've started "sprouting". Haven't tasted my offerings yet as the first lot aren't ready until tomorrow but I now have a sprouting kit to do all beans and seeds. I have also found a vegan tuna recipe *drools* It's probably the only thing I really miss, so I'm giving that a bash tomorrow too.

So, (for those who don't know) I still have a pot on my ankle. It comes off Jan 15th (counting the days...) and Llanelli ultra (yet again) is out. Que sera...

UI. glad to hear you're back running again... you too Pegg, fab news! Have you picked a new target for 2013 yet S'berry?

I'm hoping to be "up and running" again ready for Connemara in April

04/01/2013 at 15:20

Oops, sorry, forgot to say well done to you too MWW, hope things are well with the family?

04/01/2013 at 22:14
Oh Cabbey you're not having much luck at the moment - but love the very positive attitude

Got some plans for 2013 but not found the "one" yet - still looking

Had a totally amazing boxing session today loving it (remind me I said that when I can't move tomorrow
06/01/2013 at 18:46

I've managed three short runs and a swim session this week, so the year is off to a good start .  Fingers crossed week 2 will be as good, although time might be an issue because I'm on a course for two days and we seem to have a couple of nights out - very unusual for us!  If it all goes to plan, I should be playing squash tomorrow, running Tuesday lunchtime, yoga Tuesday night, climbing Wednesday night and climbing Saturday morning (if I'm not too hungover!).  I'm hoping to get two more runs in somehow so that I can keep to 3 runs a week...might be tricky though!

Well done BI on getting back into it.  Are you getting any pain, or does it feel ok?

We bought boxing gloves and pads yesterday Sberry.  Your posts reminded me how much I used to enjoy that part of my old PT sessions

Only 9 days til it comes off Cabbey, and then you'll be flying again I'm sure

Morning all

Well done on your training Pegg - happy boxing it is great fun

BI - hope you get a quick appointment

My training is going OK, having fun at boxing but still working hard, running is going OK, nothing to write home about, but I'm out there running so not going to complain, swimming isn't happening at the moment, but I will get back to it at some point!!!
12/01/2013 at 09:56

I hope you can get the nerve problem sorted quickly BI...especially when you've been counting down the days!

Well done Sberry - I keep seeing your blogs popping up, the progress you've made/are making is awesome!

I put off Tuesday's lunchtime run to Thursday night as I was snowed under with work.  Thursday and Friday I was on a training course which put me in a really really bad mood - very unlike me - so Thursday night I just sulked, but last night I put the trainers on and went out for a mile.  I ended up doing 2.5 so that psychology seems to work!  I'm running again this morning with a friend - probably just another 3miles as I'm working up to bigger numbers slowly.  I'm still getting shin splint type pains so I need to google what is causing them and how I stop them etc etc. although swapping my trainers seems to have lessened it.  And then it'll have to be another mile on Sunday to fulfil my personal pledge - run 3x per week in January...minimum 1mile to count.  It's certainly helping to push me out of the door!

Neither night out happened for us as friends were ill , so they've been postponed to February .  I have managed to play squash, go climbing and go to my first yoga class since 1998!  So although the mileage is building up slowly, I've certainly been more active than pre-Christmas.  And two pear trees arrived in the post yesterday so at some point this weekend I'll be down the allotment digging holes for them to go in...

Hello all

BI - hope you get that sorted quickly Lovely pic

SBerry - you are doing so well, I haven't done much swimming either...hopefully get back in the pool next week!

Pegg - well done on getting out there! Hope the shin pain eases.

I only managed a 4 mile run on the treadmill during the week as my neck was sore but I did some classes in the gym instead! I managed 12 very, very slow miles this morning (2 hour 24 minutes)...very windy and cold out there!


18/01/2013 at 11:22

Hi folks,

sorry have been on for  a while, heating went in house, waited for  a month for a new boiler, car was pranged before Christmas and wife had a wee health scare, but all ok now. Still running with works group and coaching kids hockey. No snow in Peterhead, just everywhere else !

22/01/2013 at 07:02

BI - hope the healing process goes well and that is a huge plus getting to keep up the sports ! Hope you have enjoyed the time off !

Pegg - shin splints - not sure what the remedy is ? Hope the pain passes and you continue to build up your miles bud !

S/berry - keep going, doing well bud !

MWW- 4 miles on the treadmill ( dreadmill  !), hats off to you, i find the treadie hard going, refer on the street. well done for the 12 miler !

Hi Granda Q !

I was out on Sun did 8.5 miles, some with work group and then on my ownsome. Nice and slow, but very cold, some patches of ice, but hardly any snow,Our base was winded off yesterday, strong winds and sea breaking over breakwaters, so our works group tried the track last night, some managed a couple of laps, but had to stop to bitter cold.Base still closed today .

Hello all i hope everyone is keeping well.
my year is mapped out nicely and after suffering a torn achilles at the later end of the year, i am now on track with ironman training. the running is now up to half mara distance and next month i have entered Stamford 30km, with a view to maybe doing Windermere mara. For UI, I smashed a 44.5mile turbo session in 2 hrs this week
Peggy shin splints probably too means too much high impact, normally made worse by running down hill. Not a lot you can do about it except stretch and eventually it will disappear. Are you doing Jantastic?
27/01/2013 at 20:17

Jantastic??!  Whatever is that RP?

Glad to hear you're getting back to training properly again.  Someone else mentioned too much high impact - I'm still doing the squash, yoga and swim lessons which don't give me shin splints at all, but I've not actually made it out for a run for two weeks now so I'll have to see how they are when I do go.

Good to 'see' you again WHH

I hope they're getting that back sorted out for you BI.

Have a good week everyone

28/01/2013 at 20:20

That's awesome BI

Yoga tomorrow night...

Peggy Jantastic is a challenge on marathon talk podcast.motivation to get my bum out the door
01/02/2013 at 09:24

Hello all

Pegg - I have had terrible shin pain for the last few weeks. I have been trying to do low impact stuff instead. Hope your improves soon.

Sorry for being around much. As some of you know my father died last weekend, it has been a difficult week.

I haven't run this week and actually not for the last three weeks because of the shin splint type pain. I will probably have to pull out of Brighton I just don't think my body is up to maarthons any more

12/02/2013 at 16:24

MWW - sorry to hear about your dad  bud !As BI says time is a gret ahealer ((( hugs )))

Rest the shins bud ! I  know what you mean bud, This will be my last marathon in April. Time consuming with hockey,kids training and works group, Too old !


BI - Hubby swimming very well, regardless of his age my friend ! I can do  a couple of lenths then out of breath !


Hope you are both well RP + Pegg !

MWW (((()))) for you and the family.
BI I used to love carnival when I was a kid, all the floats and sweets..good memories. My friends in holland posted on FBI their pictures of the them all dressed up for the carnival.
WHH I'm keeping well and the ironman training is going well. I do have the odd moment when I have to ask myself why the hell am I doing this?
