The Malvern 10k was good, I got a course pb even though it was the muddiest I've done it in. 


I will also be going to the Olympics, just not to a very exciting event as between my friends and myself we only got tickets for one event.... trampolining!!  That was my friend's daughter's choice.

Well done on the pb Ant..... Its sometimes better to run in the cool when it is a 10K. 

Trampolining is good......I could never do the sumersaults, too small/light to get enough height... (well that was my excuse). Am sure it will be more exciting than it sounds on the day.

I have hurt my weak Achilles..., splashing through puddles, that actually turned out to be deeper than i though, ruined my best run shoes too....they're now mucky..Grrrrrrr!!!  I ran/hobbled back 5 mile. Am going to suffer tomorrow. Another setback

Morning - I have a day in Telford watching children play tennis - am losing the will slowly. Thank goodness for a 3G signal!

Lexi - take care of that Achilles !

Ant - I expect trampolining will be quite exciting, certainly spectacular! Any sport where u could come a cropper normally is!!

I'm ridiculously excited by the Olympics

In other news HLad took 4 wickets in county cricket yesterday - am aiming for him spending more time out of school than in it!!

that's good bowling And no lbws you say? He really does need to learn to lean on the umpire a bit

Not sure I could watch sports that have to be judged, but it's all about being part of the atmosphere, I guess. it's always better live.

WoW HL.....with talent like that, the lad deserves the extra time out, however i bet he still does his school/homework.  

Today is Liverpool day....No its not a celebration...I am visiting the Dental Hospital for a checkup. I bought a new electric toothbrush the other day, Fab...OK normally nothing to get excited about, but for me it is...!!!  

Thanks for the best wishes on recovery of ankle...Iced last night, resting it today and tomorrow, will swim tonight and turbo Friday seeing as the weather looks mega rough.!!!!   

Crashie....well done on the curry/beer treat. I joined friends for a curry the other night.....NO...I didn't sample any chillie chutneys....

That umpire's not for leaning on

Gosh, hanging around doing nothing is hard work!!

Rescued from last week (but still on page one, so that shows how dead the forum has become)

"race report" - fantastic wedding day in Sutton Coldfield - reception held at Moor Hall Hotel if any one knows it.

Flew to Las Vegas (strange place) for 3 nights before driving off  in a red Camero convertible to Zion NP, Bryce Canyon NP, Arches NP (get the theme here?), Monument Valley and Grand Canyon NP.

2 night in San Fransico before 4 days on Highway 1 getting as far south as Cayucus before flying back last Sunday/ Monday.

Just to make you feel better, it did rain (from 16:27:20 intol 16:27:50 (Utah time) on Friday 15th

Back into the swing of things now, but not much running done in the last month

Morning.....<img src='/forum/smilies/smile_smiley.gif' />

What a wonderful honeymoon trip you had Musky, so now back into the land of reality, time to pick those running shoes up and do a short trip........................ around the block. <img src='/forum/smilies/wink_smiley.gif' /> 

Morning Ant.........everyone else who hasn't got lost in cyber space. <img src='/forum/smilies/eye_rolling_smiley.gif' /> 

I did a 52 mile bikeride Wed...the day inbetween bad weather.  Bit windy on the way out and for some reason back. <img src='/forum/smilies/sarcastic_smiley.gif' /> Was going to be 48 mile, however roadworks on the new bypass to industrial estate sent me on a detour <img src='/forum/smilies/thinking_smiley.gif' />.I ambled around the lanes got finally got back to the car and checked how slow i had gone, imagine my surprise I had done the distance in 3hr 12min. My last 48 miler was 3hr 08min. <img src='/forum/smilies/big_smile_smiley.gif' /> I should get out on the bike more, but really don't fancy coming back like a drowned kitten and blown across the road. Typical British Weather eh!!

22/06/2012 at 16:37

morinfgdg all

Don't worry, I'm back to save the thread. Or kill it off for good. I just realised I hadn't been on here for ages, what with all the other forms of communication available these days. And because I've not done much running, so it's not been at the front of my mind. I managed a very warm 3 miles today though and the summer do more/eat less campaign begins today. I even walked up the four flights of stairs at work.

27/06/2012 at 10:30

Yep, I killed it.
