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.

Can't afford first class WA!

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

Morning

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!

Evenings!

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!

Evening all

Mouse - glad to hear you can still get about.  Must be very inconvenient having unfriendly buttocks.

Boffin - adult stuff is so boring to teenagers.  There are too many things going on to think!!  Hope you are getting about okay.  How is Sweetie?

Seren - see you there.  Should be a good weekend

24/10/2012 at 07:58

Still looking good for Saturday....

Shame about the buttock though Mouse, must be very annoying. Do you know what it is? I ask because a friend had pain in a similar pain which turned out to be tight hamstrings.

I'm good to go these days, 5 miles last night, felt good at the time and have virtually no pain this morning. Whoo hoo!

Morning

Pain in the bum, pain in the back - it all adds to the spice of life I guess? It is good the pummeling is working for you Mouse

5 miles is great news Tracey - you must be on the road to progress. Wonder what it is like in Progress - anybody ever get there?

 

24/10/2012 at 08:21

Morning all  run 23 miles no aches and pains, put a gate together and shift old washing machine out and new one in and I ache all over

Did make me laugh that we paid £10 to have the old one picked up and it lasted about 20 minutes in the front garden before it was nicked  talking to the delivery drivers they haven't picked up an old washing machine for months as they all go missing before they get there

24/10/2012 at 21:31

Evening all

Great running Tracey.

Jones - excellent training.  Sods laws about the washing machine.  Any news on moving or are you staying put?

Very mild out today.

25/10/2012 at 08:15

Morning all

Had you but known Jones and you could have just left the machine outside and saved yourself a tenner?

Feeling positively autumnal out there - mild and blustery with the odd golden leaf fluttering about...

Morning all  10 miles last night, as you say Boffin very autumnal especially as the sun was going down turning everything gold  got very dark and very spooky at the blink of an eye running through Clyne though
