Come one, come all; everyone welcome on this year long build up to the GNR
I was the only one round by me until I was half a mile from home and this idiot in badly worn trainers came sliding down the hill, ran out in front of a bus and nearly barrelled into me. I was glad I was nearly back then!
Brass Monkey cancelled. Ah well. 7 weeks till the Run Northumberland half. Thats next on my calendar.
Helsby half off tomorrow as well,few drinks in the pub now whilst watching the match.parkrun was a careful jog this morning,superb volunteers made it enjoyable though.
I'm soooooo pleased I didn't chance it and make the trip down to York now - I would have been on the train already before the decision to cancel was made. I'm still a bit miffed at my brother for deciding to come up this weekend though ... I wouldn't have minded a weekend away in York anyway (at least my train tickets wouldn't have been wasted then).
Hope the race memento wasn't a good one - we're expected to collect in person tomorrow.
Oh well, I've been spending my morning deep cleaning my oven, and will be starting on the bathroom shortly.
Shielsy - Have fun!!
Just back from a rather snowy 15 miler- it wasn't too bad but I now look like Rudolf cos my nose got so cold . Oddly I only saw 2 other runners- can't think why...
Pleased I got my run in yesterday - snow finally arrived in Kent but it is that wet type of snow, small flakes and just a nuisance - we got about an inch but it has been snowing since 9am. Got to sort out my schedule this week as not around next weekend - up in Rothbury (assuming we can get there) celebrating my sons 21st and our 28th Wedding anniversary (son born on our 7 year itch). do not want to break up weekend by going out for a long run so will move everything around to fit in.
10 miler on the treadmill this morning. Very dull but had to be done and at least it was one with a tv fitted to it.
Impressive running today whether on the treadmill or outdoors,feel rather guilty on skipping a run now.
BP - is that you on Facebook? I hope so, cos if not I've just befriended someone I don't know from Adam.
When I was a child my mam and dad used to go out for drives to the Anglers Arms near Rothbury for a meal - it was a massive treat, and we would have a trip round Rothbury afterwards. I still to there now from time to time (I'm overdue a visit).
Yes, I shall endeavour to make up for my lack of running this week.
Shielsy - Yep that was me on Facebook.
Mr SJ - it really is rather foul this morning isn't it.
I did 16 miles on the treadmill yesterday and enjoyed country file, bargain hunt (double episode) and escape to the country. Infuriatingly my run was finished before the end of that so I don't know the outcome, but I wasn't hanging about to find out....I'd already been there 2.5 hours. Just to make matters worse, I was then out at Cullercoates and there was hardly any snow - I could have gone there to run.
Glad everyone else is still in one piece.
Shielsy - better not to run than to end up with an injury and not be able to anything for months.
Fiona - wow how did you stay sane? Most I have managed is 2 hrs on treadmill and then I was watching a football game.
