Jimbob thanks. I doubt I'll ever try to pass a pacer, though.

However, the YM theory of the right pen going first seems to have been nixed by your experience. 

20/08/2013 at 20:35

Most of my theories are dismissed at first....

Orb, you might if if it's a Sub4.15 pacer thats blocking you and your Sub4 attempt.

Gorram it, there's loads of booze in my fridge that didn't get quaffed by the BCRCs on Sunday. Fizz, Prosecco, beers, posh cider ..... and thank you Suzi for the Tomato and Basil salad - i'm starting to llok like a tomato.

Whens the next "Do"? - otherwise the fizz is coming up to the Moore Guesthouse with me on September 14th

and cornettos .....

Hmm...Cornettos to Newcastle. I sense a flaw in this plan.

I spent happy hour today being interviewed by a geography student for his dissertation. He's interested in where people choose to run, what motivates them, what they like and don't like about running. Poor lamb was treated to all my pet theories .

Pet theories about running or just pet theories?

RR - why weren't you in the pub seeing as it was happy hour?

Kaz - that's great news

PC - the correct answer is "both"

RR- so did you manage to convince him to start running himself ?

tell him start off with a 5km , ease into training for a 10km , look to push his limits to the half marathon , then figure out if he can do a half ,  why not a full Marathon ,,after that it's a short hop to ultras , tri,s , ,,,, and once he's hooked , get him to join us on the BCRC

Morning all from sunny Cyprus. I have been up at KOC (UK time) every morning for a run while it is still a cool 27 degrees.... I Love a good sweaty run. And long sea swims sans wetsuit.

Right, a 2K swim beckons and then off to my son's wedding.

Scott - it's more of the other way round I think - he's already a fairly handy runner who has managed to engineer himself a dissertation about his favourite subject! And no, I didn't treat him to my theories about sausage dogs - maybe next time.

Simon - have a great day at the wedding. And I bet there's a grand daughter of yours who's looking forward to cake .

21/08/2013 at 08:02

RR - what's the sausage dog theory? Or am I best off not asking?

Simon - have a fantastic day

Yes, two marathons a year is pretty hard (apart from if you're Emmy, of course!) although I've never done an Autumn one so it would be interesting to see how that goes. 

 

Nah. It's not that hard. Just do them close enough together so you can bounce off the previous training

And then just keep bouncing?!

Exactly!

Just found out a close friends mum passed away last night. She was a lovely lady and had been battling cancer. Feeling really sad as my friend is expecting her first child which would have been her mum's first grandchild.

When I ran Paris I raised a bit of money for FORCE, a local cancer charity who helped support her during the treatment.

trevo - sorry to hear about your friends loss , such sad news ,

it's always a reminder , why we run , why we try to raise money for charity , I'm sure your friend truly appreciated that you ran to raise funds for the charity that helped his mum during her treatment

God looked around his garden
And found an empty place,
He then looked down upon the earth
And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest.
God's garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.

TrevO - take care mate

21/08/2013 at 11:39

Thanks Scott and PC, here's to them remembering the good and happy times.

21/08/2013 at 12:36

Simon - congratulations, enjoy the wedding

21/08/2013 at 12:43

Simon - have a good day.

PC - A lovely sentiment.
