Hi all

6 mile for me this morning at 5:30, T-Rex seen moon and stars was telling a friend about them.

stilldreaming, that wouldn't be the Stockport 10 on Sunday, by any chance? I was there. Sorry you weren't able to run.

Sorry, a little bit out with my info.  It's surprising how much the inner planets move over one day.  The line of three is nearer the 2 o'clock/8 o'clock axis and Saturn is about twice as far from Venus as Mercury is.  Great moon this morning - not sure how visible it will be tomorrow.  Very slender and near the horizon.


No, you haven't stumbled on the wrong forum by mistake.  It's this sort of chatter that keeps the SNOD thread going throughout the years.

Hey team..stargazing..out on a 13 miler last night and was treated to a really beautiful starscape. 8 miles tonight but too busy looking at icy pavements

Chrissi, thanks for info re, Garmin watch. I'll get in touch with them. Failing that.....oh no..could I be tempted by the 610?????

Hi SD..never mind, there's always something else around the corner

HI TR40..did you get to have snow fun?

JD, has your monitoring fun finished at work? We have just undergone the same manic, stressful procedure. Random selection of pupils/work/marking/ SEN reports..aaarrrgghhhh. are you buddy?


11/12/2012 at 21:38
Brer- yep, done and dusted.
No running for me today up at 6, but sheet ice sent me back to bed. Work in the way until 7, by which time everything frozen again!
Just bought a pair of Yaktrax

Rather a sobering thought that today will be the last day for most if not all of us to experience a date with the same number for day, month, and year.  Next time will be 1 Jan, 2101.

TRex- cheerful Charlie, ain't ' you?
GRRRRRR.... like I said, no running yesterday! Got up at 6, but everything too frozen, work got in the way until 7 by which time it was lethal again!!! And I was knackered to tell the truth.... Still slippery here today, but managed an easy paced 10m before tonight's sports massage....

not worked out the planets yet but did see loads of shooting stars while walking the dogs at 6am this morning.

abandoned all ideas of running last night - ended up in a heap on the floor just walking the dogs down the field

Hi there brer, very well ta. Still glowing from 3 PBs over the past two weekends. :-0 To get a PB on a 7th running of the Stockport 10, I must be doing something right. This running to work (or walking or mincing in the ice) seems to be working wonders.

T Rex, I looked out for the alignment this morning but the moon must have sunk. Didn't see any shooting stars either, Chrissi.

jason d, how come you're still grumbling about the ice now you've got Yaktrax? Don't you trust them?

A thaw is setting in tonight. It'll be up to 8 deg C into the weekend.

13/12/2012 at 21:55
BM- Yaktrax haven't arrived yet.... Well done on the PBs.
7m for me tonight. Trip to Aberystwyth planned for Saturday for the Parkrun. Hoping for a PB of my own, weather permitting....

Quiet on here....

Wet roads= no slipping, no rain either= perfect 8m easy done and dusted. 100m round trip planned for tomorrow for my first Parkrun!


15/12/2012 at 11:16

Well that was a disappointment! Aber parkrun turned out to be my worst 5k for AGES. Don't know if it was the fact that i haven't slept much for the last 2 nights, but I just couldn't get out of second gear.  I have had faster and longer tempo runs lately!!!! Oh well, a morning out.... 5k in 19.09

15/12/2012 at 20:51

Hiya team, are we all busy? Jason, that sounds fast enough for me but sorry you are disappointed

Britnick-great going buddy, something is going well there Are you doing Ashby 20?

Well, my final 12 mile lsr before Portsmouth turned into 18 miles due to beautiful conditions and what a good way to avoid the Christmas stuff!!!

15/12/2012 at 22:44

brer - no Ashby 20 for me (when/where is it?). Staffordshire Moorlands Christmas Cracker tomorrow (8 miles from Tittesworth up along The Roaches and back) and Tour de Helvellyn next Saturday from dark 'til dark.

Another Parkrun for me today - 22:33 was 1 second off PB. It was the usual collapse to the ground gasping for air after crossing the line, so not sure if I could have gone any faster.

jason d, you must have revved the balls off your engine to get 19:09 in 2nd gear. Is it knackered now? Seriously, you did a 100-mile round trip for a 5k??

15/12/2012 at 22:51
BN- it's a newish Parkrun and I wanted to support them- it's also my nearest Parkrun. Well done on getting so close to your PB. I was nearly 1.30 off my out of date PB.......
Brer- well done on the 18
Toying with the idea of going sightseeing tomorrow ie a long run which takes in several different towns

That's more like it.  Travel 5km to do a 100-miler.

16/12/2012 at 02:43

Just as I was beginning to get the use of my bad arm back I burned my hand on the other one quite badly this morning!  Large burn about 3" long up my right thumb.  I was rescuing youngest son's paper serviette which had somehow got tangled up with a candle and didn't quite make it to the kitchen sink in time so I had to put a burning hand under the cold tap on and off for half an hour. Fortunately only thumb damaged.


Still, you don't run on your thumbs and I'm looking forward to getting out soon.

T Rex- Ouch

Talk about the best laid plans of mice and men....

Well, went out TWICE today to try a long run. Gave up in the end cos feeling really rough and light-headed. Decided to skip it and return to base. Hopefully, better tomorrow.... Total of 4.5m !

16/12/2012 at 17:22

BN- I am also doing the TdH, may see you around. There is a group of five of us going to amble round together.  Mark Liptrot who did well in this years runfurther series is one of the five. I hope he has off day, I don't fancy trying to hang onto the back of his shirt tails for 37 miles.
