Hello - Somehow I don't think we're going to make it to 100k. I blame Facebook as most of us are on there too now.

I did Bristol half last week. We missed the first wave but still managed to catch up with the back of it even with starting 30mins later. It was vet busy compared to my other 1/2Ms this year.

Am not on Farcebook, Its initial ethos to connect friends all over the world has changed to how can companies sell you products via your friends tag or whatever. Privacy my ar$e. Each time I read about the latest issue with facebook privacy problems, the less I am eager to join. 

Musky at least you went out and did it, time is not important. Doing it is. Well done.

Ant gosh good going on catching them up.....was always my worst nightmare, arriving at a race and seeing them running off into the distance.

Trainining session Tuesday I told the guys not to wait as my Achilles was abit sore so would plod around. I walked out and saw them disappear down the road and round the corner in the distance and thought...hmmn wonder if I can catch them (why??why did I bloody think that???) So I went into full race mode, caught them going up a hill, did I ease...NO was in race mode, passed them, they then give chase, however as we got halfway round I realised the effort of pushing the pace meant I was now blowing like a steam train, knackered would be an understatement. I stopped, let them pass, took my waterproof off and then once again...*See if I can catch them* mode.  So much for an easy plod.!!!!!!

I think we should make  concerted effort to hit 100k...

Haven't done Bristol Half for years; twas too busy for my taste even then...

It was a very strange experience watching the race go off knowing you should be in it.

I've got Snowdon in 3 weeks time but both of my achilles have started getting sore so I won't be doing any more long runs.

Who is going to be Slogging this year?

Good idea....I like Concerts.

Yes, I missed running Wednesday as Achilles hurt, Thursday tender plod, so today I just went for a long walk whilst chatting with a friend about all things rubbish. (not of the throwaway kind),  

WoW Snowdon Ant, fingers crossed for a nice day for you.

3304- Morning All 

I should be XC running today  But a very busy....... and if am not I will find something to do.. Its not that I dont like XC, its just I hate Bangor venue and after all the rain, it will be like bog snorkling.

Am just wondering what the next venue is like as never done it..... And I have been selected to run for Wales in the British and Irish International XC Championships. Perhaps i do need to do some muddy runs before it.

Been to the Wendy ball today. )

First x-country race of the season tomorrow (8 miles). It was either that or 20 miles for Snowdonia training.

3301....Thank You Crashie  

ps I was was a quagmire, my Team Captain phoned to see if I was OK as there had been a smash on the A55 near Bangor. She reported XC was very muddy, will be the British Bog Snorkeling venue next year for sure....Phew glad I missed it on all levels.Next venue is nice she says....her idea of nice and mine a re slightly different as she is a seasoned XC runner. Nice is flat football pitch XC.  not mucky sodbury slog immitation.

Time for bed I have to be up at ungodly hour to marshal a duathlon.

Evening all


My x-country went ok but a lack of marshalls/signs meant a large section of the field (me including) ran around an extra field adding over half a mile. At least I got more for my money that way.

Crashie - Yes, it's there best top flight start to the season since 1919!! 

Lexi - Well done on your selection.

3299........getting there.......slowly 

Ah the power of the marshal's presence or in your case Ant not present.  

My Marshal season is over, I have been invited to end of season party , unforunately I will be Zooming out to Shamrock Land for the .now in real panic mode......

.Achilles still causing a problem. If I take more anti inflammatory tablets, my stomach issue becomes a serious problem....However have decided I will deal with that after the race.  The Joys of keeping fit eh???

Ouch to the Achilles Lexi!
24/10/2012 at 19:04


Lexi - Good luck 

Snowdon for me this weekend on a pair of dodgy achilles too. Fortunately so far once I've done about a mile they warm up and have been ok.

24/10/2012 at 19:36
Good luck Ant for Snowdon - rather you than me

Good luck to the pair of you

I am still fat. I managed a 6 mile run today, broken up as I changed a flat tyre for an elderly lady. Yay me with my selflassness and altruism; it was nothing to do with needing a breather, honest
