SARQ-So the ironing last week was part of your training?

Still BHB's age group champs includes going to the shops, moaning about youngsters, commenting on how young the policemen look, filling a tartan shopper up and back again. I saw him training the other day, seeing how far he could get on public transport before elevensies at the Derby and Joan club.

Ppp and he's not even the oldest on this thread.

Good run this morning, fastest 20 miler I've done this year, thanks to all who turned up.

GBM - Get well soon

UB - Hope the foot gets better

After my run I had another trip to the cardiologist, couldn't believe I'd just ran 20 miles,I was his first patient who'd done that before an examination.

Still concerned about my large septum so he wants to wire me up for 24 hours but wants me to wear it for a run!!!

I've got to go back and have it measured again, then 12 months later, if it hasn't got any bigger they will discharge me, he says it's all down to running but doesn't want to take any risks

Nice to see a familiar face on the MW this morning, she was flying.

Here is a conundrum that some might think is a postive development, but not me. I keep getting notices that PPP has added something to the thread but for whatever reason, I can't see anything he has added to it. He has completely disappeared from the thread I am looking at. I miss his witty entries. Any suggestions?

J8 - hopefully that is good news from your cardiologist. At least he hasn't stopped you from running. Are you sure he is a real cardiologist though? I didn't know they worked on Saturdays!

02/02/2013 at 18:24

BB- Sorry Cardiologist clinic, he was a doctor giving me the results of my recent ECG's

Go to settings at the bottom of the main page and you can un block him there.

UB- Forgot to say thanks for the film.

02/02/2013 at 18:44

Thanks J8. PPP has reappeared now, but to my surprise he is going on about ironing rather than irony!

02/02/2013 at 18:51

BB-do you really want to unblock him

J8-hopefully good news, sorry i couldn't stop this morning, i was preparing to fly , ran 17 miles.

02/02/2013 at 20:24
BB - That is definitely part of the age group test, working new fangled technology. Looks like BHB has got the upper hand in this particular battle of the silver tops.
I think you will find that blocking me is actually the default position for most of the thread, hence your difficulties.

J8 - I better not insert any jokes about you being a coffin dodger. But very glad to hear it sounds like positive news. Any one could have told the specialists that you were just big hearted!

well I thoroughly enjoyed my 20 Miles yesterday:

Dts - wow, stunning. Great photo.

yeah, Duddon Valley (Harter Fell in the middle) taken from White Pike
weather forecast was for it to get gradually worse as the day went on, but obviously the exact opposite occurred, resulting in some stupendous views in the late afternoon sunlight

oh, and late on just as I was getting back to the car, I saw an otter!

 Congrats to Eric on a fine run at Mickleden Straddle btw

J8-maybe, there's too much running and not enough banter

Had an e-mail from the 4V organisers, apparently there's 2,000 thermal mugs to hand out, from the thread, there's approx. 13 of us that entered, is there anyone else, as perhaps we could arrange for a bulk shipment to be dropped off.

05/02/2013 at 17:33

You are right J8, maybe it's just a lack of motivation or that we have lost the competitive spirit.  Racing and the banter that used to go with it seems to have gone.

I think this will be my last year of hard endurance training - it's a struggle for me motivation wise, and I am only carrying on 'cos I started and don't want to waste that effort.  I may even try some vets track distances next year as an alternative and max out at 5ks. 

05/02/2013 at 17:37
GBM- where are you? The thread is missing you!
05/02/2013 at 18:56

Sorry! Im sulking because my illness has taken a turn for the worse. I think i tried too hard at the track last night and i'm now paying the price. I will rest until the weekend and hopefully i will be up for a long-ish run then. I doubt i will get fit enough for a sub 3 at VLM but i aim to be as fit as i can by then and then start Bullock Smithy training. 

I could add loads more fell races to the race list as i plan a summer in the hills, but i will leave it until the spring marathons are out of the way or the list will be too long.
