Non, je ne regrette rien
Benign murmuring, thanks for the tip. I've got her friends trying to inform the hospital as we speak.
Mother in law has taken a turn for the worse and the squatting friend is being very hostile towards all her friends. Things do not look good.
I sincerely apologize to everyone for gumming up a running forum with my very non running woes. I'm just so desperate for help. Thank you again Maus.
Charlie - there's more non running talk than running talk goes on here anyway, so don't worry.
Thanks guys. Much appreciated.
Do fertile imaginations lead to lots of little imaginations??
Glad your back and knee held out Scoot. And nothing wrong with a fertile imagination.
i'd be lost without mine. Keeps me sane.
10 miles for me today. Ran it at a fairly rapid pace so feeling very tired, but in a smug self satisfied way. Mrs Mac's birthday tomorrow so out for a few drinkies tonight.
Ocht! Just common sense stuff that everybody knows about. But I will concede that I helped a client through something similar. Quite a long time ago...
Hey Charlie, this is a community. We support one another through thick and thin. This year has been the most tumultuous of my life and these guys have been there for me every step of the way. No apologies necessary. We're happy to help, even if it's just attempting to make you smile with some potty humour.
And, really, it's probably best we don't know any more details about Scoot's fertile imagination...
Double breakfasts - nom, nom, nom, nom
Good news Scoot. On the running I mean, not on having a fertile imagination.Good luck tomorrow to...Kaz on her cross-country debut, ATM in Paris, Emmy in Frankfurt, CLR and Smelly Melly at the GSR and Elizabeth at Venice, and Carl D in Dublin on Monday.
And happy birthday to Mrs Mac tomorrow
Speaking of running, heard an interesting analogy yesterday. Imagine you're on the start line with a box of matches. Each match represents energy. You've got a certain number of matches to use throughout the run - say ten a mile. You can burn 11 matches in the first mile and go quicker early on, but it means you only have nine matches for one of the subsequent miles.
Anyway, back to the potty humour...
Weedy, if I took a lighter would I have endless energy? Or would that be cheating?
Charlie4 - please keep bringing isues like that up here; we really do behave like a very big and sometimes, funny/ weird/ driven/ athletic/ intelligent/ caring family. I hope you are able to find a skilled and competent lawyer on Tenerife quickly. Maus - I am so genuinely proud of you. I love you to bits.
Well, I am well and truly smashed. Did a very hilly 4.5hr bike ride today, 126kms, a couple of thousand calories. I first felt tired at 48kms. It was only the last 45 that were really painful. It was right up there with the worst of any marathons I've run in terms of needing to manage energy and state of mind in order to keep performing. Sleep will come quickly and mercifully tonight.
Tricky - sounds like you had a good one
The Beachy Head crew are alive though maybe not quite kicking. One of the toughest, hilliest and most fun races I've done. Spectacular scenery, and cake. Full report to follow.
Good luck to everyone racing tomorrow AND REMEMBER TO CHANGE YOUR CLOCKS TONIGHT (unless you're somewhere which doesn't change them, in which case don't).
Well done TD - puts my half hour on the turbo into perspective!
RR - full report required, step by painful step.
That clock change should leave time for a cheeky morning run before we have a family day out at Blackpool's sandcastle water park, we live a few miles off down in Lytham St.Annes. Too busy for the usual Saturday long run today but not too busy for 2 cakes
Good luck to tomorrow's racers!
Well done Beachy Head folks. I manages a nice 7-ish miler with BRF today - good to get back to running, and magnificent weather for it!

And this year's Paris bracelets, which will arrive next week, has the slogan "You can't bank time, only energy". Just like Weedy's story
Kaz O'clock ......
I love that Danni!
I probably shouldn't have, but since I have not heard anything about the x country today, I ran 10 miles this morning! Longest run since Berlin and everything. Felt ok apart from the head wind and being cold!
Good Luck to everyone racing or running today!
Just finished a marathon in sub3, well 2h53 to be precise. All those years of hard training have clearly paid off.
All the ironing is completely done and put back in the wardrobes. Now for a recovery cup of tea!
Good effort TD. My ironing PB is 3 shirts, a pair of jeans and 2 pairs of y-fronts. I usually hit the wall at about the 8 minute mark. Poor training obviously.
Lovely Semi du Bois de Vincennes. Roads and paths through the woods .Race Report and fashion critique of Fire Brigade's running uniform to follow, when home. Great bling... lovely , heavy,medal-shaped i.e. round! copper-coloured medal showing chateau and woods. A great race although 2.03 shows how far off the mark my daydreams are... Definitely one to do again. * Train hard, ladies. 1500 fit men in uniform in a confined space...*
Next, dinner and ascent of Eiffel Tower... with the Stooltire.
