...and the beat goes on...
Kaz - It's great you are back out running, just take it easy and try not to do too much.
I'm on an enforced rest day after yesterdays waddle!
Is that what you meant Kaz?! Which 90s are we talking about?
Cracking run at lunchtime - 10C, glorious sunshine, spectacular autumnal colourfest in the forest. Loved it. Knee didn't hurt too much either. 14kms to add to my graphs. Running shades on, everything....
Tricky - does the frock on the right come in lycra?
There patterens yer_maj, am sure you could make it out of lycra?!?!

Lucky you. I was about to do the same today when somebody at work decided we should have a lunchtime meeting. Not terribly happy about it. I will have to go for a run this evening in the dark!
I see Eggy and Emmy giving i large on the 'Medal' debate.
Sock it to them.
I just go out to the pub in the running tops given out after races. Now that is fashion.
For goodness sake James B, put some shorts on!!
.........and then I spend the night in a Police cell.
For what its worth - I do like a medal. This time last year I was 14 stone and had never ran more than 6 miles.
Now I'm under 12 stone with 4 medals and hopefully a 5th from Conwy on Sunday. Then I will go down the pub in my t-shirt and then get free food and accomodation courtesy of the local constabulary.
TD: finally a few graphs I can actually understand - thank you
DLR: desert boots, I used to wear them to school accompanied by rolled up skirt, and long woolly socks!!! Memories such memories
Did a lovely off road trott with the boys yesterday afternoon, now have head cold, so not running until feel better.
1 pair of desert boots. One pair of Steve McQueen's (with crepe heel)
YM...on the border in Monmouth. Just back from run, a whole 5k, snack then TKD..later all
Non-running shoes? It's an interesting concept. Can you buy them in clothes shops or do you have to go to a specialist shop online?
Does anyone understand how the Run Britain Ranking handicap system works? I know the better times you do, the lower your handicap is, but what do you do with that score? My handicap's 14.2, but it just seems to be an arbitrary figure. Do I take off 14.2 seconds per mile to compare myself against someone else or do I add 14.2 per cent to someone else's time? Or am I in the bottom 14.2 per cent of runners in the country? Or do I need to eat 14.2 jelly beans before each half marathon?
Emmy - Just heard this week's Marathon Talk - ace
It's hard enought to keep up with this thread let alone find time to post on it!! But just to show that I have been paying attention, and I know I'm going back a few pages, here is my favourite pie chart
On a less daft note.... boy am I struggling to get going with my training at the moment! Someone has stolen my leg muscles and replaced them with bags of saw dust!!
Reading all your posts and being reminded of the jaunt to Paris is keeping me motivated though so cheers all!!
Straycelt - that's not Wales
Ward - that's my most favourite pie chart. My legs are so sore after this morning's efforts that I am still wearing my compression socks. This is apparently Not Cool to wear to the Conway....

Jeans (blue), trainers, t-shirt (various colours), fleecy top. That's all I ever wear. I think it's a good look. Mrs Mac doesn't.
I suspect Mrs Mac has had a while to get used to it....
