Work's nuts at the moment, but the weekend is here Plans? Out into the Perfect Storm in a minute for a run, followed by inter-regional xc tomorrow through thick, deep mud....

Garmin 305 beloved watch doesn't seem to be charging very well..any ideas? I have never done technical things like clearing memory etc, it has 3 years of manic stuff in it. Could this be an issue?

Anyway..have a good weekend all plus good luck Jason for your next stage of madness

JD good luck mate.
Brer try clearing memory, sounds like battery dying

Good interval sesion this morning, 15 miles in the morning
07/12/2012 at 21:47
Brer- could also just be dying battery......the next stage of madness? This is an escape from the madness! Undergoing a departmental review with observations, pupils panels, book trawls etc etc at the moment. merry Christmas, god bless us, everyone!
TR40- well done on the intervals and enjoy the 15.....
TRex-?? How's things , buddy?

Been in a lot of pain and went to GP, who said it actually looks good and that I was "ossifying nicely".  Something I've suspected for a long time, and nothing to do with breaking my collarbone on 16 Nov!

T Rex- sounds like good news....

I'm going to pick up a takeaway curry in a bit, but deserve it after a busy day. First, the mudbath in Builth, fell over when I sank almost to my knee in a mud filled hole, but didn't hate it quite as much as normal. Still no good at it though! LOL!.Then a nice run along the River Wye while I was there. I would have liked to have explored further, but didn't want to be left in Builth by the tem minibus! Then a nice leisurely run this evening as it was such a nice evening. Total of 16.5m for the day

Hi all, cheers for battery tip. Took it to a jewellers and he couldn't help me, too specialised!!

TRex, ossifying sounds positive, I think!

Final 20 miles of Portsmouth campaign yesterday, bad move as I went on the razz last night. Vast quantities of vino and vindaloo mixed grill not a good idea after 20 miles

Jason, sounds a lovely day out, hope you enjoyed the takeaway.

Brer- sorry you struggled today. I found that last night's lamb chilli balti, keema rice and vin rouge fuelled today's run nicely! Shame about the weather though....

16m done and dusted for me. Same route as last week, but horribly strong and cold headwind on the way back saw me run the same route as last week 1.38 slower for the same effort (if not more). Plan was to run the last 4m at around 6.30 pace, but the route is a totally exposed coastal path and in the last 3m I couldn't get below 7.00 miling! 1m warm down to finish, so 17 for the day. Splits for the 16 tell the sorry tale: 16m in 1.52.47 (7.03 av) 7:19 7:10 7:05 7:11 7:10 7:11 7:09 7:04 6:48 6:53 6:54 6:47 6:46 7:01 7:19 7:00

09/12/2012 at 19:11

Holy hell Jason, you are making me feel cold just thinking about that exposed section. Good going though bud.

10/12/2012 at 14:36

Brer - i had to send my 405 to Garmin to have a new battery, only they don't fit a battery they send you a recon replacement and charge about £80 but it was like getting a brand new watch

TRex - glad your starting to mend

Not much running going on here finding it really difficult to get out at night in the dark  recent weather hasn't helped much either

For you early morning runners a great spectacle in the sky at the moment - three planets and the crescent moon.  Was very good this morning and the moon will be one day smaller and nearer to them tomorrow.

Try looking tomorrow about 0700.  Venus is the obvious bright planet. Some distance away, fainter, and at about one o'clock from Venus, it's Saturn.  In the opposite direction, about a similar distance seven o'clock from Venus, it's Mercury.  All three in a straight line.

Day 24 of my fracture and looking forward to when I can go out again.  It's feeling slightly better each day.

4m this morning. Thanks for the astronomical info Mr R, I did actually notice the alignment around the moon this morning while sruggling to stay upright! A bit less Torville and Dean, but not much less, tonight for a 6.5m. All good

Nothing to report here  Weekend's 10 mile race shelved - just felt really achey and tired, so couldn't see the sense in trying to race 10 miles.  Shame really, as recent runs had hinted at a pb ... still, I've been running long enough now to know that there's always another race on another day .  Couple more rest days and hopefully I'll be back out there!

Hope everyone else is recovering/avoiding injury and illness and enjoying their stargazing
