Furthermore, greetings from Bratislava to y'all. The trip has been long but fun and in very good company. Can't wait to get started. And, frankly, finished! Cheers.

Iain, honey.  When a threader announces they are "taken" it is the done thing to give some detail.  Certain procedures must be followed, ATM must give royal assent, that sort of thing....

"Taken" doesn't cut it, I'm afraid....

The team inspires me.  I am absolutely in awe of you guys. All the very best - I know the hard times will be eclipsed by the good times, and the pain will be mitigated by the cause.

Thank you Danni and TJB, you gossips! (I am however 'taken', as I think the kids (don't) say these days.)

Ha ha! It started with a photo on a thread .....

YM - I know! Been seeing someone for past 2 months. She's lovely. Not a runner though. Nobody's perfect

Danni - lovely words. Thanks.

Douglas Maus, however, as far as we!re aware, is single.

Today's task is to find a camping mat. On a Sunday. In Bratislava. Unless it turns out I'm too knackered at the end of the day to care what I'm sleeping on, in which case I won't need one.

sorry to hear this kaz...   but rest is good.  You need it.  Take it easy today...  ((hugs))

RR Douglas Maus is single and I hear he's quite a catch!


Just had a ruddy marvelous 32k run. Pacing exactly where I wanted it and nothing fell off. There are not one but two 10k races in the west end today, I ended up running the last 10k of my run on the entire British 10k Run course. I was slightly ahead of time so didn't end up getting passed by the Kenyans. All the cheer points and crowds were in place so it was quite amusing, some people thought I was winning the race, I had the course to myself and finished a few minutes before the elites came steaming through. The crowds helped me get through the difficult last few miles in the heat!

Jimbob - only you....

14/07/2013 at 12:31

YM, I didn't run through the winners tape mind, that would have been a liberty, the stewards looked nervous as I approached the line so I just veered off to the side!

14/07/2013 at 12:57

Oo-er! One of the movie quizzes that I know for once! National Lampoons. I hope I will hear the refrain of "Holiday Road" by Lindsay Buckingham from Eastern Europe!

I may attempt running this afternoon. If this serious case of CBA ever decides to leave me alone. And I don't faint again.

JImbob..  that's brilliant

Went out today to run 25k and all was going reasonably well until about 6k when my calf tightened. I stopped and gave it a bit of a stretch and then decided to walk for a bit to see how it felt - ping.

Mrs O went home to get the car and I hobbled for a bit until she picked me up.

So, no running for at least a week - maybe more. Great preparation for Berlin.

Could be worse.
