Bloody hell Dave, must have been a good one.
Congrats Caz and Mr CS on the 10 years. And on the Parkrun.
Phil, not too bothered about weather in Florida but definitely don't want rain and gales in Wales in October.
Only got to run 3 times this week but managed 2 10s and then a 15 today so getting a few miles in.
Nice one GE, have 2 days off with an 11 tomorrow and a fifteen for Tue, keep fit mate
Doing my best Phil, but can't believe my daughter's using this broken ankle business as an excuse for neglecting the housework.Would you believe I had to hoover today. Didn't seem to be working too well and then she tells me you have to plug it in....
Apparently, although it appears we still have a steam iron...
how do chaps!
Forgive me for not reading back... Hope everyone is cool? Running and cycling sporadically after Paris in April (yes, I know!). Mrs C and I have decided to do Brum half together this year in Oct and so her getting up at 6am to train while I chill is a real treat!
I just thought I would drop a post to say hello - hope you're all really well.
Hi Adrian, good to hear from you. Seriously considering Paris for 2013. Did the BBCHM again this year. Love that race! I'm doing Snowdonia with Phil and Fiona which I think is a week after Brum.
Morning All. Another Friday. Can't get enough of the Olympics at the moment... some top sport going on. Despite Paula having let me down, I'll be in London Town on Sunday to have a look at the marathon and take in some of the atmosphere.
Before that hoping to get in 16 miles tomorrow. Snowdon's 12 weeks away.
Happy running everyone. Have a great weekend.
Sky+ the womens triathlon yesterday as we were out for a little 15mile tootle whilst it was on...watched it last night and couldn't work out why Jenkins kept getting herself boxed in on the run...if she didn't have a final sprint why did she keep allowing herself to get trapped??? Easy for me to say I suppose...after all I was sat on the sofa with a nice cold bottle of lager watching it Just watching the marathon now and am really glad I'm not down in Londonium...it's fair tippling down down there...
I've got to go for a abdominal & pelvic ultrasound...only somebody somewhere hasn't thought this through...the the abdominal advice leaflet "have nothing to eat or drink for 6 hours before your appointment" the pelvic leaflet "finish drinking 1ltr of water 1 hour before the appointment" Hmmmmm...think I'll go for the nothing to eat or drink as that's a damn sight easier than trying to hold onto 1ltr of water when the appointment time means nothing...
Caz, you're quite right it was tippling down and I was right underneath the tippling. Couldn't have been wetter if I'd jumped in the Thames. May have to reconsider my view that umbrellas are for wimps. But the sun came out later and I did eventually dry out. Met up with my running buddy from Romford and we wandered round Stratford and then watched Andy Murray on the big screen in Victoria Park. Home in time to watch the Mens 100 metres. Top weekend and even managed 16 miles on Saturday morning , Hope all is well.
Phil, totally agree. They were just awesome. Hope Mo can do the double with the 5000. Pity Jes has decided not to do the hurdles.
Didn't do a long run this morning. Stayed in Brum after work and made the most of the unseasonal weather .... i.e. it was warm enough to stand outside with a beer and you weren't getting rained on. Probably had one too many Peronis.
So had a bit of a lie in this morning. Got a 10k off road race tonight at 6pm, the Stourbridge Stumble. Quite tough but I love Saturday races Got to dash back after though, Mo's on at 7.30! Did this race 3 years ago and was just over 51mins so hope to be quicker than that.
48.53 so very happy and back in time to see Mo. What an amazing couple of weeks this has been and topped off with that 5k. Absolute quality.
Hi guys!!! 'Tis I - the newbie. Feel like I should ask if I can join your thread it's been so long. But you seem like a nice friendly bunch so I'm sure you won't mind.....
Won't be joking about the newbie bit either. Have yet to run since getting back on Saturday and only managed one run over the 2 weeks in Thailand. Very poor effort. Weather was incredibly hot and humid though so swam lots instead which was no hardship as we had our own pool. Funnily enough the humidity actually made breathing in the heat easier then back home in the heat. Well, that's what I'm putting it down to. Shaun didn't agree - he struggled big time and could've wrung his pants out by the time we got back. Ewwwww.....!!!!
Snowdon will be more about getting around me thinks.
Nice to hear from you Adrian. Glad all OK.
Well done on all the other running and training going on guys. Congrats on the 10 years Caz and Bru.
Gutted that I missed the Olympics by going away - but with hindsight, think it was just as well. I seriously would not have got anything done if I had been home and Shaun would probably have sacked me by now. Since being back in the UK I have not moved off the settee. Did watch bits and pieces abroad though and caught up on the main stories on the internet. Truely a wonderful games. Cannot be prouder to be British at the moment.
Take care all x
........for clarification......when I mentioned Shaun struggling and wringing out his pants by the time we got back - obviously I mean back from the run, not back from holiday.
.......he's fully trained now and changes his pants every day - not every two weeks.
Welcome back, Fi. I'm sure the holiday will set you up great for the next few week's training. Have a 30k off road race in Derbyshire on Sunday which will hopefully help my prep. A friend of mine did the Salisbury 54321 last weekend which is 50k off road. Got me thinking about ultras a bit. Maybe next year....
Have a good weekend everyone.
