Yup, insurance is a con; I am 'obliged' to have farm public liability insurance - 10 million at a cost of around £600 a year. Never claimed on it and unlikley ever to have to - nobody comes here!! It is all based on the fear of 'what if..'

On the bright side, it is not raining .... at the moment

Yes it is. Humph.

Evening all

Insurance can be a pain but you never know when you need it. 

Awful night out there.  Survived Calender Girls and am ready for bed

Sleep well all

Seren, I think I am going to find Snowdon challenging too. Things are not really going well in the long run dept.

Morning all -

Had a nice night out in Cardiff yesterday with a lovely Thai meal and a few beers - but thankfully a quiet weekend lies ahead for a change.

Looking forward to having time for a run tomorrow with feeling like I'm squeezing it in - if you know what I mean?

Hope Snowdon goes alright guys.

Enjoy your weekends.

I seem to be squeezing everything in these days, including myself into my jeans. Humph

Tracey, you need to enter a marathon !

Evening .... long run this afternoon.

Thanks to Nutty for her company and coming up Afan Argoed at short notice. This week I only blew up at 17.5 miles today and managed 20 in 2:26 so better than the last few weeks. Compared to even last Jan things are going pants. Seeing as my marathons always go far worse than my training I could be in for a kicking in Snowdon.

Evening all

Was a good run over Afan Argoed. Thanks WA.  Good pace too.  You will be fine, have faith in your ability. 

Cardiff for me this evening to catch up with some old friends.  Fine food, plenty of cake.  Can't be beaten.

Tracey - sometimes life takes over. How is your foot these days?

Another lovely day.  Enjoy

Can it be true - more sunshine? Bit chilly to go with it; winter is beckoning.

Freezers full of pork and sausages hanging - I love making sausages; best bit is frying samples for testing

Compensates a little for the rubbish veg harvest this year - nice to store away for the winter (must have some squirrel ancestory?).

20 in 2.26 is not to be sniffed at Alex - I reckon I could manage 20 fruit pastels in 2.26, does that count?

I sort of counts Boffin. Sounds like you have some nice food stashed too.

XC this morning in Margam and my legs are still trashed from yesterday.

07/10/2012 at 09:12

Morning all. Nice to have 2 fine days on a weekend

07/10/2012 at 10:56

Oh bugger, long post on how wonderful running without pain and in sunshine is, and how great it must be to have a freezer full of home produced pork, and I've pressed some random combination of keys which has deleted the lot! Don't even know what I did wrong either, bugger.

Ah well - run, breakfast and email/forum time over, bet get on and see if I can find a way to make teaching the English of population density statistics anything other than deathly boring.This is going to be tricky...

Evening all

Margam Park was a lovely setting for the race today.  Excellent time was had by all.  I got second lady in 21.44.  Didn't fall, amazingly

Annoying when that happens Tracey.  Hope you got work sorted.

Boffin - sounds like the good life is exceedingly good!

07/10/2012 at 22:49

Tracey, shame when that delete thing happens. Good on the run though.

I did the XC. Did just over a min faster than last year and finished ahead of some people I was behind last year. I let myself down in the last 1 to 2 k. Should have kicked for home but did not have the confidence to do so. Still, with my legs tired and most of my recent training having been pants I am not dissatisfied.

Nutty did well again I think PTH swept the board too.

Wide awake. Old habits die hard....

Cheers WA. You are an excellent runner. Believe in yourself.

Need to eat.....
