on a completely different subject, when (if any) will there be another (thread) get-together prior to Paris. Feel i want to have a couple of drinks/break more bread with you guys (whoevers about). I don't have aparticular day in mind but if any of the non London folk from afar are making it to the Big Smoke in the next couple of months we could try to organise something maybe? ?  just throwing it out there ......

Kazza - just double checking Stromness on Google Maps - wasn't quite sure how far up the Orkneys were - turns out they're north of John o Groats! Wow - ive seen those places on TV and they look just Beautiful. If i ever make it up there i will be looking you up.

lol JTB, yes we are quite far north indeed!! And it is beautiful here if somewhat isolated at times. You are more than welcome anytime.

Belated birthday wishes DV.

I think we all admired Lance at some stage and it's hard for some to give up on those memories. The important thing is not that he will get his punishment (which I'm sure he will), it's what his punishment will teach us all. I watched neither interview because he is not deserving of any of my time.

21 miles for me today, my longest so far in the VLM campaign. This was to overcome the disappointment of my race today (the York Brass Monkey) being cancelled due to snow.

TD - great progress indeed. I had wee peek at your run. Did you vary the pace deliberately, or were you aiming for constant effort and the terrain dictated pace? Just being nosy. I ran the same distance but tried to maintain an even pace, apart from on a couple of hills and for warm-up, cool-down.

Well done on 21 miles OO. Great effort in these conditions.

RS - these people think of everything!

Saw Django Unchained tonight. It rocks.

Simon, pretty much constant effort. Very difficult to keep pace on the hills as there just wasn't enough grip. And I was tired at the end so I guess pace dropped off in combination with even sloppier conditions. My hamstrings in particular are aching this morning so good sign that I've worked hard.

some weather in the North East today. Glad I'm on a rest day

Apart from here DV!!! We are back to normal - torrential rain and gales

Junior has had a major freak out this morning, and all about taking her contact solution to Paris No matter what I say she ain't taking it in! Hopefully just Monday morning syndrome!!

Iain - I plan to see Django Unchained sometime over the next couple of weeks. Lincon is out soon too, which also looks interesting.

No snow here either. It's bloody freezing outside though.

Here's a story to warm the 'cockles of your heart'. If you aren't British, I'm sorry, I can offer no explanation for this idiom. Just read the story. A very good man.

Princess - sorry But I can't make miuch sense of what you posted and i can see you tried a few times!

OO - 21 miles. So you're taking VLM seriously this year and aren't planning on collapsing over the line and getting laughed at by Steve Cram again?

21/01/2013 at 08:57
TD - great story, interesting reactions to his most honest gesture.

Eggy - it's too long but fun. No one makes movies like Quentin and some of it is incredibly funny. Grand cinema.

It's snowing! *'Can't help it. It still excites me. 'comes from living next to a Primary school, I think. The kids have been shrieking  and laughing for ages...*

The yaktrax hunt is on...
