Morning all
How's things? I'm back to my normal training programme as from today, although at a much lesser degree and much slower pace and nowhere near the distance I used to do. Hey... Ya gotta start somewhere havent you?

I bought some new trainers yesterday (Saucony) as I can't bear the heel height of my asics anymore. This shoe has a 4mm lower profile and will save me running on concrete in my trail shoes any more.

What day does S'berry do her race? Is it today?

I'm home! Vitruvian HIM done, not as well as expected, I was on target for GB qualification until the run. Somebody turned up the heat (27degrees), I couldn't keep my temperature down and felt sick all the way round, I was digusted when I saw my shuffle time of 2hrs 19mins for a half marathon (unheard of for me!). My swim time was 43 mins for 1.9km, happy with that and my cycle time was 3hrs 59mins on a very lumpy course. All in all, I still had a really good day and will be back for it next year. Now to do some mara training, 4 weeks and counting!

Hi everyone.  Sberry's race was on Friday - can't wait to hear how she got on.

Well done RP that sounds like a great result, sorry you're not more pleased with the run time though.

So you're back on it again Cabby, and I see on Fetch that Q has just broken the 100miles for the year, does that mean it's just me holding up proceedings now

09/09/2012 at 10:10

Sorry, my mistake, I think she actually ran yesterday.  I hope you're not aching too much today Sberry

Oooh... How exciting that she's all done and dusted. Can't wait to read her race report.
Well done RP, so fab that only your run needs improving. Try heat training for the next one and you'll be putting that GB vest on
Hi Pegg, how is your foot now?
Congrats on the mileage Q. I honestly couldn't say what my mileage is this year. I don't think I've done 100 yet though.
09/09/2012 at 12:20

No you're not, Pegg - I'm still in semi-recovery from my hip replacement and under strict orders not to run a step until Christmas. So I have a big fat total of zero miles run this year.

Pup Charly is one week off being 4 months old and went for his first swim yesterday. Like all dogs, he splashed about at first and then suddenly started swimming doggy-paddle.

the brain is tired today, cycle time 2hrs 59 mins!

Cabbey run training of any discription would be a good bet next time

Ahhhhh UI... Any Charly pics you can share?

Hello to everyone else

I keep trying to post a picture of Charly but for some reason it won't work,Just tried it again. I always get a system message that says "oops something went wrong, you will now be transferred". I've posted several on Facebook with no problems.

Massive congrats on your race S'berry.... So pleased for you that you did your challenge. I read your report on Fetch, fab! So what's the next challenge?

A year old already Q? How time flies!

I'm very achy this morning. Not used to all this exercise I love training sleep though... It's like I'm in a coma
11/09/2012 at 07:10

Well, this one worked! This is Charly and his favourite toys.

What a cutie. What breed is he?

I'm knackered. I'm so not used to exercise. I think people at the spa thought I was going to have a heart attack on the treadmill. And I think they weren't far wrong :-/
