All good thanks NR. Job really busy but it was definitely a great move.

Off to Cardiff this weekend. Kids to WWE World Tour on Friday and rugby for me Saturday.

Will be a slower than normal plod on Sunday I think!

Morning all. Friday at last.

Friday indeed - not sure it makes that much difference to me? No school run I guess - but I still end up as a taxi service over the weekend, and as for the rams - any excuse to be caught up in brambles... you would think they would want to take the weekend off?

Have fun Jones

Glad to see the back of this one, had a stomach bug on Wednesday night, spent most of yesterday feeling ill and watching crap TV  but had to go into work today, couldn't cast the poor darlings adrift for too long...

Its tough being grown up Tracey.

Really going to have to sort my Welsh out. Sticking all the audiobooks I have on CD on my ipod so I can listen to them in the car. Won't take long I hope.

Looking at the weather I am actually quite concerned for anyone doing a marahon over Gower tomorrow.

Evening all  forget the welsh Alex you really need to work on your motivational skills

I'm actually starting to look forward to it now  if I don't get trampled by some sort of livestock I'm sure it will be fine

Evening all

Jones - it looks stunning.   We live in a fantastic part of the world.  I hope you enjoy.  Good luck.

Bit of a wet one out there today. 

Tracey - hope you feel better.  At least its Friday.  Nothing worse than a bad belly.

Misty start here - lifting now. Should be a nice weekend for running and other outdoor activities

I have to convince my helpers that they really want to spend an hour outside lugging cattle hurdles (very heavy; 8" x 10" mild steel tubing) around in the mud. Neither of my helpers have time for such outdoors fun, but the cattle need moved off the farm to go and flirt with a bull!

We don't have a bull of our own - and may never do, certainly none with horns anyway. A good friend of my Father in Law (only in his fifties) was killed by his bull as he was thrown in the air and landed badly. Big animals cattle - fortunately for us, too dumb to work out just how much bigger than us they are!

Retrieved another ram from the brambles - honestly you would think the field was nothing but brambles - nothing like, they are trying thier best to get stuck in the tinniest bits of bramble they can find!

Morning all

Just watched Jones's video - wow, that looks amazing! The Joneses must be very fit though, it's awful rough country in some places.

Boff - killed by his own bull? That's shocking, I had no idea they were so dangerous, I know the odd dog walker has a run-in with one, but I assumed that was just because of ignorance on the victim's part. No way a farmer is ignorant though, poor man.

I am feeling better thank you Nutty but still nowhere near normal, stomach cramps and nausea everytime I eat.

I'm off to buy new pillows.

Evening all  hardest thing I've ever done by a country mile  wasn't helped by the recent rain that meant most of the course was like a swamp, so in lots of places most of your effort was put into just staying upright

Good day for the Jones household though  on a dry course I was hoping for under 5 hours which in all other years would give me top 10

Struggled at about 20 miles and started cramping all over the place  but pulled it together a bit towards the end and finished in 4hr 47 minutes which gave me 7th overall and 1st 40+, so very very happy bunny

Mrs Jones finished in 5hrs 11 minutes, 17th overall and also 1st 40+

Really glad we ran lots of the course beforehand as there were lots of people getting to 26 miles with the finish still 2.5 miles away having major meltdowns
