Btw when I say cooler temps I mean when it drops below 40! Either early morning or in the evening.

Streak is over, just wasn't going to be able to do it today!

Cheers Phil, enjoyed some running back home but did more cycling. Heading back to the sand pit tonight!

Hope you are now injury free!

Where's everyone else?

I'm here WR but not been on for ages.

Currently training for Frankfurt and about to start training session 42 this afternoon. Did 10 miles in a boiling Cardiff yesterday and stopped twice. Not because of the heat but because I was listening to an incredible story of injustice regarding Brian Banks (linebacker for the Atlanta Falcons) google his story - its a very compelling read and his interviews just leave you shaking your head in disbelief. I had to stop twice while running to take it in.

Anyway, start a new job next week with Albion Water. Current company were bought out last year and I'm still to be convinced that the new owners have an appetite for water so I decided to move.

Exciting times!

Over n out

Not been on in ages...not really felt like posting as I've been in serious sloth mode  Need to get my butt in gear as Nessie is calling and the training plan is already on it's 3rd incarnation.  Yesterday was a 3mile easy and I can't remember the last time I've clock watched on a 3mile run...in my defence it was REALLY hot...ok not quite WR hot but still hot...the sweat was pouring off me.

Mr CS is currently out with injury...he was complaining of a pain in his achilles/calf before the Humber HM and after I'd had to wait for him at the top of the 1st serious climb (that NEVER happens) I told him that was it I was ringing the physio.  She has diagnosed a haematoma...apparently at some point he has had a minor tear at the bottom of his calf and with all the running we were doing he hadn't noticed...then we took a week off...no running at all...which gave his leg time to try and heal over the repeated minor tears. 

Good luck with the new job Dave...

Hope the achilles sorts itself out pretty darn quick GE.

Have fun with the streaking Phil, although be kind to that knee...you don't want to end up on the injury bench as well.

Dave read the story, poor guy I hope he gets his break. And good luck with the new job.

caz c'mon get off your butt and out that door, you know you want to. 

still running in silly temps but having to do longer stuff in the gym. Off to edinburgh in 3 weeks and hope to run Arthur's seat. Haven't been there since the 2010 marathon.

Enjoy your heat wave while it lasts!

Anyone watch the athletics from Monaco tonight. Blanka Vlasic relegated to 3rd but I have no idea how she went on in the high jump!

28/07/2013 at 20:50

Wouldn't have minded watching her but Jessica just gets hotter! Dave knows what I mean.

Off to edinburgh this weekend, looking forward to outdoor running, did 18k on the treadmill the other day and that was so hard due to the boredom factor!

Hope everyone is healthy and running well.

Hope you enjoyed Edinburgh WR.

Thought it was time to bring the old thread back to the front page for a bit if only to say I'm not running the mara in Loch Ness. Achilles still nowhere near right and not managed more than a couple of 5-mile runs a week

As some of you know I have history for entering Scottish marathons and not running them although to be fair I have managed to run the last 3 I've entered.

Have non-cancellable hotel so will still head up to Inverness and have entered the 10K instead. Nice relaxing weekend and more pub time 

Hope to catch up with Caz and Mr CS sometime over the weekend.

Hope everyone else's running is going well.

Hi GE, sorry to hear about the marathon plans, hope that Achilles sorts itself out soon.

I thought this thread had died! Had a great time in Edinburgh and did loads of walking but no running. 

Have done some running but not as much as I would have liked but trying to get back into it.

Hope everyone else is fit and healthy.

First run outside this evening, 4.3 miles around Dubai marina. Been sticking to the treadmill for the last month but temps are now only mid 30s so back outside. No running in silly temps for me this year!

Hope everyone is well and fit. Has Snowdonia happened and when is Loch Ness? Don't think I'll do the Dubai marathon in January but will do the half in Ras al Khaimah.

Cheers, if anyone is still here!!!

Hi WR - still looking in from time to time but it's a little lonely

20/09/2013 at 11:34

Hi Dave looks like no one else is here!

21/09/2013 at 06:19

hello, hello, hello, hello

yep, there's even an echo, even an echo, even an echo

21/09/2013 at 08:01

Ha ha

11/10/2013 at 18:55

Okay Dave definitely time to retire the thread!

14/10/2013 at 11:23

I think so - so long old friend

14/10/2013 at 22:28

So long WR. Catch up with you sometime.
