Hi gang

Still no running as it is marathon recovery time. However last year one week  after London and before Riga I ran a 10k race, so it is nice to have the time off. I am targeting a local race the Wellington 10 miler in July , so we will see how that goes. Will get into some more intensive stuff next week, but at the moment it is all UKCC course work for me ,lots of study and swot and assignments etc. BLOODY HELL ,I am talking running again. I do apologise to everyone !!!

 That is a long way back home to New Zealand just to run a 10k.   Is it hard running in rubber boots when you are so used to trainers?

Kiwi that doesn't really constitute talking about running.  It is talking about having the intention to run which by definition means that you are not running so that meats the posting criteria on this forum.

Guess who is at it again?????  and there are no superinjunctions to spare his blushes this time.   People have always said he was a family man.  Looks like a much closer family than most of the families I know.

Afternoon. It's been a long time but I knew I'd eventually get the opportunity to skive in work. How is everyone?

Hiya Greg,

Nice to see you found your way home after your flirtation with another Edinburgh marathon forum.   How did you get on this year?

I'm not too bad thanks.  Been better been worse.  Running is still pretty eratic but there have been a few carrots at the end of the tunnel as Stuart Pearce would say since my marathon disaster.  I keep saying things could only get better but that never seems to be the case.

I think we should have a wee vidyo we haven't had a vidyo for a while.

Good afternoon everybody

Oh dear marathon training has started again. It was quite nice for a few weeks not having sore leggies on a sunday morning. Only 15 weeks until hibernation starts!!!!!

Bored bored bored bored bored. So many things I could be doing and I'm sitting at mum and dads watching fat folk playing football on the tele as there is nout much else on. Oh to be back in newcastle when I wasn't required to report in and my weekends were my own!!!!

Fed Up , solicitor this afternoon......... sh1t this is where it gets hard...........
14/06/2011 at 13:08
I feel an injunction coming my way
14/06/2011 at 18:58
Better do some stalking before it kicks in  
14/06/2011 at 19:10
Rumour has it that Markk got his arse kicked in the dad's egg and spoon race for a second successive week!!!!!!
14/06/2011 at 21:05
No I was busy falling off a ladder this afternoon. Both shins bloody and bruised

Should make the 7 Hills painful in a new way this weekend.

Still no fecking job
14/06/2011 at 21:28

Markk that is quite sad you are now self harming to avoid getting thrashed by the other dads in the egg and spoon race.

Smiffie hope you got on well with your solicitor.  I didn't think your dog would have pressed charges for the post speed session knee capping a few weeks back.  I believe your defence of it being an "accident" and that you just tripped over him even if the judge and your dog are not convinced.  I may even have some photos  to help prove your innocence

I wonder what markk learnt on Day 3 of his "How to be a  Chuckle Brother" Course?
15/06/2011 at 22:12


I ran fab tonight.  I had an interval session on the dreadmill and managed to cover 5 miles in 28:54.   If only I could do things like that outdoors.

After that I thought I'd do some weights and core stuff.  I did a few planks to finish.
