Enjoy XC Seren.

WA - I'm sure that Snowdon will be fine.

All good here, life is still going at 100mph and my running at 5mph is a welcome break!!

Afternoon all  Alex you could blow up, recover, finish, have a pie and still watch me drag myself over the line

23.23 miles done this morning  found it very very hard this morning, luckily the Gower scenery is enough to drag you around on a day like today

Steve, I feel your time is coming. When I have seen you running of late you are no longer 'identifiably slow' and have on occasion been going better than me when we pass. With the trainining for such a hard race you will have improved in spades. You are defo one to watch. Moreover Mrs J is going like a train whenever I see her.

Kev, I am surprised you are still speaking to us mere mortals now you are in First Class !

Evening all

RK - glad to hear life is good with you.

Jones - the scenery over there is fab.  Always love running by the sea.  I ran along the beach early this morning, not too much pounding on these old legs of mine!

The last few years have been fire and brimstone so good weather will be a right turn up for the books.

Looking forward to it.

Evening all

Fingers crossed Tracey.  Was soaked to the skin on the start line last year.  Didn't see any of the views, head down against the wind and rain!!! 

I am looking forward to it now after months of dread. 

Seren - you will enjoy every step.  The support along the route is fab.

Hope weather in Snowdon is good for you guys especially as we will be staying in Aberystwyth for the weekend.

Off to bed now, on 05:28 to Swindon tomorrow

When do teenage boys start to use thier brains? Boff Jnr has chores in the morning - intended purely to make sure he is out of bed - all he has to do is give the cattle water.

The water tub was withing a C - shaped coral of 10 foot long by 6 foot high steel cattle hurdles. (the hurdles are arranged this way to allow the cattle within the hurdles for feed - gets them used to the hurdles for when we need to handle them, vet visits, moving etc). Anyway Boff Jnr was outside the hurdled area and I suggested he move the water tub out of the hurdles and into clear field as the cattle where being too thick to get the water... Boff Jnr was no better - he decided the best way to get the tub was to open up the hurdels - which of course meant nothing was holding one side and it collapsed! These things are heavy - fortunately no-one was injured. Why he didn't walk around the hurdles and take the tub out of the open (10 foot gap) end of the hurdled area I have no idea!

son can't afford to insure his car for next year so we are getting rid of it.i hate trying to sell anything so i think we will just do it for scrap value

Oh what a shame Seren. That's a real nuisance.

Goodness, sorry to hear about your back, Boffin but it sounds like you're doing well.

My buttocks and I are still not friends. The pummelling was very painful but I can still run and ride so I'm happy. Did a bit of mountain biking in the woods at the weekend which was fun!
