Hello Barkles - what ho!
This summer has flown by - am madly making a list of chores to do today and tomorrow b4 returning to London for paralympics. I may not have left enough time! Never mind - back in the Olympic park the world is a shiny happy place and not having organised school shoes a minor trifle.

I found another room to paint yesterday.......

My kitchen....! I have completely transformed it. Actually amazing what a coat of different colour paint does innit.  

So whos next for my expertise with a paintbrush. (ps you may need to buy extra, I have a perchance for giving myself highlights and shoulder tattoos in selected colour)

Hello all

HL - What are you going to see? I'm going to the Athletics on Sunday. 


I have a new 5k pb 21:18. I think these hills/sprint sessions are actually working. You just have to get used to running at the point of being sick.

Mr have changed your avatar,  Difficult to see...but I do need glasses me thinks....I recently had such an embarrassing incident because my eyesight mis-read someone's message.

I have Pride the Lion, he sits inbetween my 2 seats in the car, attached to the airflow so he can view the road. . So far he keeps smiling, so he must like my driving.

Same here....thats why I bought said least i dont have far to go for a cup of coffee and a choice of snacks in the heat intervals. Waves flag....!!  

A new pair of run shoes arrived today. Nike Free Run+3, I had to send back Lunaracer I bought 3 weeks ago. Less cutting edge technology and more cutting skin...Yeeouch!!  (they changed the shoe style/material).  I am hoping these are OK. It took me 2 hours of online/phone calls to sort which was the best.....will post my review tomorrow after I have run.

Mornifgn all

Haven't been on here for ages, what with holidaying and not running a lot, and seeing what most of you are up to via Facebook. I missed the whole de-spamming incident as a result.

I have been on and I missed the spamming incident too. 

Morninja SVT,  Morning All.  

OK so why am I smiling like a Cheshire Cat.

I am a Welsh Champion & Nth Wales Champion for 10K (again)

It was a late decision to enter, emailed Selection Manager for Nth Wales for an entry form on the 23rd. he sent the form and put my name down for both. The 10K was the Welsh Champs incorporating Nth Wales Champs and Inter Regionals.

Bank Holiday weekend I felt ill, must be the paint fumes i thought (see above post).by Wednesday I was feeling very sick, plus I couldnt get my club vest back of someone I had lent it too. Friday I told my friend I was dropping out (I felt that ill), however friday night I had a call from selection manager, someone else had dropped out of the master's team, wear my Nth Wales vest Sunday...OMG!!! AM not well. He said *Just do your best, besides you run better when your'e not well Lex*.

I felt hot on the day, the drizzle at Caernarfon had stopped and the Sun had come out. Oh NOoo.

However, I pulled something out of the bag, won my age group in both races (Gold Medals) We won the Team Gold in the Inter Reginals, I was first back in he team (Another Gold). plus I did a PB  40.54 (my last race , last year 41.26) plus I have broken the Welsh Record/Nth Wales record for my age group.  Oh yes and won a trophy+towel in the open race for first in age group. 

Feel Sicky today

My recovery today is hovering the lawn. No you read that right, my hover mower doesn't cut it, just does as it says on the box, hovers over the grass.  

Heyho at least like Mr Hamster I will be out in the sunshine.

Lexi - Congratulations, ell the best runs come when you don't feel up to it.


I am a bit tired. We went to the athletics at the Paralympics last night so I didn't get to bed until 3am. It was a brilliant evening where we got to a British gold medal awarded, got to see Oscar P. lose for the first time at 200m (but missed out on all the controversey) and then for the last event GB won the gold in the 5k. My voice is only just recovering.

Yay Ant - glad you had a great time.

Lexi - congratulations

Today I woke up wondering what world-class sporting competition I was going to see...

...and then remembered that I wasnt but I did have manual handling training!

The 5k was an amazing event, it was just as Mo Farah's 5k has been described with a wave of sound travelling around the stadium until the roof started to lift as David Weir took the lead with 100m to go.
