nice running Tracey.

I went out with all good intentions and started what is scheduled to be a 7 mile easy, but I aborted! In my defence I had a tooth extracted on Tuesday and I could feel the icy cold in my mouth. I didn't want to take any chances with it, so I took the sensible option of coming home to pork steak with mushroom sauce

Evening. Cold out again.

Friday tomorrow but alas Bristol beckons.

Too cold to run outside in my view tonight. If I did my muscles would just tear themselves apart if I did anything meaning.

Happy Birthday to Mrs RK

Good grief Alex, the things that are out there on the internet these days! But you are right, it was way too cold, didn't enjoy it at all.

Interesting fact re. the internet - my kids, all hugely nerdy, all spending most of their time playing and/working on computers were asked "which is bigger, the internet or the world wide web?" They didn't know.

Tracey. Yes, got four kids on that one!

Mmmmm roast dinner sounds nice Hope Mrs RK has a good birthday, be nice if that sun comes out again and the wind drips - well chilly!

Still chilly out there, but dry which is nice. Sounds mad, but I could do with some rain... I water the animals from water butts, which have all been used up now (need bigger water storage tanks!) - so I need to use mains water. This is fine apart from the small detail that my standpipe is all frozen up! So I am carrying water from the house!!

Evening all

It was snowing here at one point today Boffin!

Bad news about water problem Boffin.  The things you have to think of on a farm.

Supposed to be good weather for the cross country tomorrow

Didn't get out running today but did take Adam swimming tonight. Not been a good week running wise. The weather really makes it difficult as it's too cold to get myself going properly whatever I wear

WA - looks like it will be warmer tomorrow for cross country. Training in this weather is hard.

all the best for the cross country today, looks like I'll not make it to support.

Morning all.

No running today - long dog walk planned instead.

Nice un yesterday on coastal path. Saw the leaders of the ultra go by at mile 36 - still looking fresher than me!

Hope XC goes well guys.

36 miles! That mind set is beyond me. I admire it but no idea how it works.

Very nice 6 mile plod with a friend this morning. Bearing in mind the level of obesity, illness and unhealthy habits that are prevalent among the population, I feel very privileged and lucky to be able to enjoy a six mile run.

Nice morning to have been out taking the air. The animals feel the winter at its longest now, spring is in the air but the grass isn't growing quickly enough to sustain them. It takes me a good two hours each day taking feed to them all - a little stored sunshine from last year's summer in the form of hay coupled with bought in concentrated feed.

Evening. What a great day for Swansea FC!

Good words Tracey.

Glad you are enjoying running again Tracey.  There's nothing quite like it.

Boffin - no time for running for you.

Supported cross country as knee wouldn't let me run today. Enjoyed catching up with everyone.   Temporary blip that will soon be over.  Llanelli marathon may have be abandoned for another year!

NR.....hope it gets sorted for you soon........

I did a 15 min run after my bike ride yesterday.....i love running in different places and so will no doubt make that brick session longer next time i ride out from cardiff......

I have the last of the gwent league cross countrys next week and have really enjoyed the series.......and then doing the newport half next sunday..........fully booked with a 1000 runners and I think only 20 % are affiliated so they have done a great job in advertising it to the non running club communities and getting people into running.......

its organised by a charity .. but the organiser is a long time runner and race organiser so hopefully all will go right in its first year......
