It's a nice run Yvonne - done it myself the last couple of years - wish I could be up there again but not up to 10k at the mo.  WIll do about a 5k I think

Blimey Yvonne!!!!! 

6 stone in 8 months?  I'm totally speechless...  You must feel like a new woman??

I see you ran Cardiff Half?  Is this a local race to you?  I'm in Cardiff.

My thinking too, Nam

Also well done for just casually doing 20 miles yesterday... which puts me utterly to shame...  I don't think I did 20 miles total in the whole of November & December.

I'm from the Garw valley and all my family are still there so I could combine a visit to my Mum's and do the Cardiff half.  I live in Kent now.  I really wanted to the Cardiff full marathon but they didn't run it this year 

I'm doing a marathon (my 2nd) on Jan 13th hence the 20 miler - my last LSR  tapering now.  It's all Paul Mckenna's fault - I only started walking 2000 extra steps a day

is there a BPTT tomorrow?  Didn't know that - might give it a spin

*waves to Yvonne*

Another Welshie...  I should have twigged when you said you used to be a 'Jenkins'... LOL

Yes lots of people unhappy about their decision not to run the full mara this year, also no stadium finish.  I was supposed to run Cardiff Half but had to pull out injured and gave my number to a friend...    Looking at that cobbled finish line I was glad really, cos that would have finished me off!!!

Yes Bear. Always A Christmas day and New Years Day time trial at Bushy park

Check the website to see if there's one at Banstead Woods

*waves back to Nam* 

The Cardiff half was my very first half and the stadium finish was great - felt like a proper athlete  I thought of doing the half again but without the stadium finish it wouldn't have been the same.  I must do more races in Wales, the only other i've done (twice now) is the Porthcawl Boxing Day Run.  Can you recommend any?  Btw I spent my student days in Cardiff (Physio school), had a flat in Roath

Yvonne:  Lots of the Welshies on the Swansea thread.  Llanelli Half (on 2nd of March next year I think) and Llanelli 10k (in June) are really nice races, so is the Swansea 5k series.  A few of the Welsh possee just did Nos Galan tonight.  You just missed the Pembrokeshire Coastal Marathon last month.  Ponty Reverse 10 is in February but nasty hill at the end!!  San Domenico 20 is popular.  My OH marshalls that one.

OMG Yvonne, fabulous weight loss!!

I was Yvonne J before marriage too . Both pre and post marriage names were/are Welsh too, but hubby's Irish and dad's family are Lancastrian.

I've got a 10 miler in early Feb to train up for after sh*gging my ankle in September, currently managing 5-6 miles in one go, with 1-2 walk breaks.

You were both Yvonne Jenkins and now you're both Yvonne Meany???????

>>wonders what the statistical likelyhood of that is<<

31/12/2007 at 22:31
No Nam, but my pre surname began with J and married begins with M...tis a wonder meeting any Yvonnes, so I get over excited
