Anyone up for it?
I'd be up for a little run next Wednesday through Endcliffe Park - trying to fill up my diary with things to do at the moment as I've been a bit of a hermit for a while! Wednesday's a running day for me anyway.
6.45/7pm would be good for me, but really any time from about 5.30 onwards is doable.
I live on the road just past hunters bar so this would be excellent for me. Might be a bit slow mind having a few problems with my knee the last few weeks.
Aitch can you ask your uncle what the deal is with the dogs around his house never sure what's doing on in there and me and my housemate are various theories.
excellent, i'll start a list then

Good god this thread's been busy!
Can anyone come along next wednesday? I work in town so would be easy for me to get out to Endcliffe.
Haile - Is there somewhere decent to park at Damflask? I live in Hillsborough and do a lot of running round Rivelin / Loxley valleys but haven't been up to Damflask, guess I could just run out there and make it a nice long one.
As for the social itself, not sure whether a decision was made on a date? Here's my availability for the list of options given by aitch though:
Sat 14th JuneAitchSun 15th JuneAitch
Stuart – maybeSat 28th June

StuartSun 27th JulyAitch
StuartSat 2nd August
StuartSun 3rd AugustAitch
the more the merrier Stuart, it'll just be a gentle trot upto forge dam and back going at the slowest persons pace
i normally park on the path/road just after the road turns left along the dam wall. there's always plenty of cars parked up on the lefthand side. if you run it clockwise (i dont know how anyone can run it anti-clockwise, its just not right!) the path follows the dam wall and just after a house it goes through a gap in the hedge and follows a great little gravel path down to the end of the dam. you then take two rights which brings you back onto to road. you follow that until just before the road goes uphill, the gravel path is then joined again until you get back to the car. its about 3.5miles maybe a little under but who cares!
Are we doing Damflask then? I thought we'd decided on Endcliffe Park?
I don't mind, but if it's Damflask I'll struggle to get there as I don't drive!
Sorry for being a bit thick, there.
Not your fault LP, sorry for confusing matters!
Haile - thanks for the info, sounds good and I'll definitely be giving it a go soon!
Never really explored Endcliffe much so looking forward to it.
List so far for next Wednesday then:
Any other takers? Aitch, you up for it?
You guys I'm sorry I've just realised I have to be in a meeting on wednesday night because of peace in the park. Can meet you all next time.
Oh and by the way Peace in the park is on the 14th come down and get drunk while I'm grafting, If it's warm I might even take my t shirt off for Aitch
That's a shame Cake but like you say if enough people are up for it we may be able to make these regular outings.
Hope P in the P is great, wish I could be there!
Christ I had people's race diaries for 3 months in advance to fix a date for the South West Social (Exmouth Summer Beach Fest) and you lot just say "next Wednesday"? It shouldn't be this easy... LOL!!
See the bit about us going down the pub nan Thing is us northern folks actually train. Well exsept me.
If anyone is interested tonight's my normal distance night anyway can have a warm up for next week if your about?
And who are you calling "Nan"...??
Have labelling issues and have to type quickly to geek and work at the same time.
