How was the night out last night? Mirth and merriment had by all?

It's a good one, I'm sure you'll be able to enter for this year's too. There are usually a few less than 50,000 running in Carlisle.

That soreness is like a badge of honour, isn't it BBS? It  may be even worse tomorrow. Why not try a recovery run, a gentle three miles or so?

Yes, it was good craic, BBS - a good crowd too, some very tired runners in evidence as the evening wore on though.

Are you running a book then, Mr sj?

Of course 30,000 means 2,500 per calendar month - that's some post rate to keep up for a year.

A run? Today? Impossible.

Just noticed your holiday comment, commando - that's a shame.

Get 2009 in your diary - it's usually the third Sunday in October. We'll see you there, and I'll be in my running gear this time.

Shielsy & the banana skin!!   I have heard (I think) that banana skins are good for getting rid of verruccas!!

RTG - dont think its possible to get a veruca where shielsey was rubbing it

Blith - I get discomfort at the top of my thighs as well (really felt it towards the end of that 21 mile run I did last weekend).  I get pain also right at the top, i.e. where your thigh finishes and your torso begins!

LOL mr SJ!! 
06/10/2008 at 11:53

its a date XL!!, get yer shorts on

Out of curiosity I put 'banana skins healing' in Google.  Seems that banana skins can help itching, mozzie bites, general inflammation and also, piles!!

Right gotta go.  Have a good day folks

Blith "Have we heard from James Vixx RLTW Mandie or Ros yet?"

James might have extended his break at The Rex hotel.  A fine Hotel.

Me too RLTW. Where it joins and the top generally so what's that all about? Presumably you aren't using your glutus maximus enough either?
