Well done everyone!! 

Exciting news here today......its 20 degrees!!!! Not had it that hot in years!!!

I had my first run of the year on motorbike, and I must say I really enjoyed it although I was very nervous to begin with!  

Other than that just gardening again but soooooo nice!!

Dannirr, thanks for the tip, I'll pick some up.

Tricky, i would have run faster but I had to weave to avoid the snipers

Well done on the PB's TJB and Orbutt.  Great running.

Skiing in porridge snow and 18 degrees for me. Followed by 300M swim in the cold water of Loch Morlich. Very enjoyable day out!

Ah from sunshine to shrinkage in one easy move....

Great reports RR - sounds amazing.  Or, as my almost 13 year old's contemporaries would say, Totes Amazeballs.  FFS.

Fantastic PB's JB and Orbutt - it's been quite a weekend, what with TD not falling to bits and sunshine on Orkney and Mrs Eggy an all.....

TD:Glad to hear all your bits are functional. Long may it continue. 

YM: we're so adaptable us. Chameleon like even. 

JB: I'm going to save your post about it being too early to talk about sub 3. And taunt you with it around December this year when you start Paris training!

RR: Superlative reports!

Well done PBers. 

I've just done my longest run since Paris. The first half saw me go out way too fast. But. I don't care because I finally cracked 10km in under 60 mins. 

Sadly, the return was not so great and I had to walk the last big dirty hill home. 

So I'm posting from the safety of my stairwell where I'm waiting for the temporary suspension of mobility in my limbs to pass.

Sub 60 mins is a huge psychological milestone, Maus.  Took me 3 goes to crack it and it made all the difference

Your limbs will thank you for it later.  Honest.

ATM amd YM: Now where's the photo of this bonnie lass? C'mon....please? 

Gee. My skirting boards are dusty...

19/05/2013 at 20:07

Maus - the photo is on spacebook.

Thanks! It's been bothering me for a while. Didn't intend to do it today but just had the legs for it. I've come precariously close a few times, so felt nice to have an unexpected achievement. Like I said the other day, wherever my little speed increase inspiration has come from, please running gods may it continue...

Have managed to crawl into my bedroom where I'm chastising myself for my overly ambitious and energetic yoga exertions on Friday and Saturday.

Cramps! Cramps! DLR! There's a love. Pop over and gove them a run? My legs aren't as fit as that young strapping lad in London, though...

19/05/2013 at 20:11

I have a little darling who does all my dusting, skirting boards included for part of her pocket money!

MM- Well done on the run!

Oo oo. Where? Not in BC group?

19/05/2013 at 20:18

Hmmm Kaz: might be a bit extreme to have kids just to get my skirts dusted! Maybe your would like an island getaway. We have ice cream!

19/05/2013 at 20:19

That would be the young strapping lad who collapsed in tears in front of us would it?  Only to be attended to bt DLR and JB...poor wee soul.

The 60 minutes thing really is a huge time to break...my 10k time has slid down almost without noticing it since I managed that, but getting there was blody hard work!

Orbutt - you beat my PB you bugger

19/05/2013 at 20:21

"Gove them a run"! I sound like bloody Officer Crabtree. 

Give them a rub...is what I meant. Please?

19/05/2013 at 20:44

Better than Radar's "KEEP MOVING!!  JUST PUT ONE FOOT IN FRONT OF THE OTHER AND DON'T BLOODY STOP"

19/05/2013 at 20:51

Well done on breaking the 1 hour 10K MM. It's always nice knocking these barriers down. DLR is awfully quiet. Must be hot footing it to Isle of Man.

19/05/2013 at 20:53

And shrinkage wasn't so severe this time YM. My bits are acclimatising.

I'm afraid I also participated in massaging of his thighs. He was pretty cute! Albeit about 15 years younger than me...

Oh you know....once you get to my advancing years, there are distinct advantages to 15 years younger....
