Lovely morning out there today. Life would be boring if there was never any challenge - your students will benefit from your enthusiasm Tracey

Good to hear your knee is improving Nutty, must have been some bash to still be painful.

Spring is just around the corner Kev, grass is growing (slowly) and the trees are coming into bud.

Forecast is a week of sun !

Still travelling a lot NR, but my new office in Cardiff will be ready by Mid April so that should cut the travelling down a fair bit - Bristol 4 days this week.

Getting colder again on Weds WA - Derek the weatherman has forecast penetrating frosts - ooh er!

Hope the frost clears quickly as its my daughters first rugby match today!

Morning all

Well done on running LTS.

RK - won't be long till your working day is shorter.  Good luck for the rugby.

Off to Aberystwyth

Very much enjoying the lighter mornings and evenings. Might still be cold but spring has sprung!

Evening all

Was a fab day.  Went to Aberystwyth for a meeting.

Knee is on the mend thanks.

Its great to go out for a run in the light.  You can't beat running

yes once the morning frost has gone its lovely............did the scenic 7 drive route last night by torch light......gorgeous up there with the moon and the stars and the space station looking down on us

Sounds gorgeous Seren. I also had  a lovely run last night, must be something in the air. Going to attempt a swim tonight although it's been so long I'm not sure if I can remember what to do.

You were right Kev - feels much colder out today, bit of a breeze and the sun is in hiding.

I like the Scenic Seven - not sure how 'scenic' it would be by torchlight though

I have enough trouble in the hydrotherapy pool which is only 1.5m at the deepest!


20/02/2013 at 09:43

Morning all, it is indeed great to have the lighter days (although Seren's run sounded nice too!).

I'm working from home today. Here was my run as the sun rose over Bwlch Y Gwnt (Machnynys)



Glad knee is on the mend NR.


20/02/2013 at 14:55

Boff - I am 156cm tall, so your hydrotherapy pool would be great fun for me!

Evening all

Lovely photo RK.  The last few mornings have been stunning.

Sounds like a good run Seren.  One thing I will never do is run in a forest in the dark, unless accompanied by a stretcher! 

Glad the running is going well Tracey.

Boffin - so long as it is helping don't worry about the depth

21/02/2013 at 10:17

Tracey - we have plenty of arm bands here if you ever need hydrotherapy!

Is the knee 100% now NR?

Had another fab run on the coastal path today, but icy, biting winds there today and now I'm home the sun has poked through.

Going to start a focussed 10k plan after my trip to Scotland, in readiness for the Llanelli 10k which I have entered.

Next race for me then will probably be the Sospan MT10 - have always fancied that one.

Then Llanelli HM in March next year.

Keeping it all local - sustainable running!!!

Feeling great.

Smashing photo Kev.

All being well I am bringing my grumpy cow and her calf home today from thier visit to the bull - all assuming we can catch them and convince them into the trailer! The Farm I sent them to do not bring their cattle in over the winter, which on the one hand gives them lots more space, but on the other turns the land into a mud bath - which is quite literally has been this year.

I have been up there a couple of times over the winter to move bales for them and the cattle have had a tide mark up to their bellies in mud!

I will be pleased to get them back here. I think I will have to find an alternatvie solution for future years.

Brrrrr! Don't think I've ever run five miles and still been cold at the end - that wind is just vicious. Roast dinner for tea, just as well too, it's that or I'll be on the gin later.

Don't you just love English? "Roast dinner for tea"! Every foreigner is puzzled and every Brit knows exactly what I mean!
