Morning all

Another dry day becons - even the suggestion of some sunshine which will be nice for more rotavating of the veg patch.

The work and kids are tiring enough Alex, it's that 'everything' that really hits you... the stuff you don't plan for, or think will take that long etc, little things that you just think "I'll just get this done, then I will be able to do that" - takes forever and then you are shattered and up against time.

Hey ho and away we go...

How are you and Mrs Jones, Jones?  Training going well?

Nice day.

Evening ... 'everything', yes, that is a massive problem !

Even had a speeding ticket today. 38 in a 30. I rarely speed nowadays and was caught by a cop on a bike. It was just one of those things where should have changed down a gear but didn't and let the truck accelerate a little before changing, I saw him too but obviously not soon enough.

Not got any points so far so prob a speed awareness course I would think.

I have this feeling that 2013 is going to be sh*it but that 2014 will be ok

Alex, I got caught doing 35 in a 30 zone, early on a Sunday morning on an empty road with no residences near . The speed awareness course is only 4 hours of tedium! To be fair I did learn some stuff I didn't knowhad forgottten and I am rather more careful now (and my satnav has a nice warning system if I creep over the limit or if there are sneaky cameras around!).

I see you are not doing Llanelli after all today - shame, but the rest will probably do you more good than harm.

NR why no sleep again?

Good luck Sue.  Nice day for it.

You know what it's like when you can't run.  You have this excess energy.  Got an interview on Thursday for the job I am doing as my contract ends at the end of March.  Lots to think about but then hasn't everyone?

Well, another one bites the dust. Another bit of bling to add to the others along with a nice shiny PB 

I ran/walked the whole way and it paid off nicely. Bliddy cold out there though and the wind was biting along the bits of exposed coastline.

The day didn't start so well - I had the mail saying that parking was going to be a problem so get there up to 2 hours early. I had intended leaving at 6:45, but by the time I faffed about it was gone 7, no matter, it's only 20 minutes. By the time I de-iced the car it was nearer 7:15. I got as far as Gorsienon and realised that I had left my number and chip behind! Back home. Grabbed the necessary, got back in the car - no Garmin! Said Garmin retrieved and off again.

As it happened parking was ok, but then lots of hanging around in the cold. . I didn't see many familiar faces out there, but did see GrahamV, he was steaming along!

Lots of nasties going on here, let's hope everyone recovers soon and can enjoy the spring training, best time, not too hot and often drier at this time of year than summer or autumn!

03/03/2013 at 14:11

Well done Sue, you are a star, as ever.

I don't feel too good either. Got a temperature and a stinking headache which hurts like hell everytime I cough. Also have tickly cough, so happy days.

Evening all

Well done Sue.  Your hard work in training is paying off.  Llanelli marathon pb for you

Sorry to hear you feel unwell Seren and Tracey. There are alot of bugs going around.

A woman in work had a cold for two weeks and insisted on turning up every day.  Hence, I have a cold too .  Its only a cold though

When all else fails, Monty Python's Spam sketch reminds us how important it is to laugh every now and then.

Pie, cake and laughter - what more could we want?

Hope all get well soon! I've been a little poorly as well, sounds trivial but had two large mouth ulcers, so bad - hurting to eat / talk even yesterday! Lots of mouthwash and simple food planned.

Apart fom that all good. Off to Scotland Friday for Rugby so need a big training week this week.

Well done on PB Sue. It was a cold one yesterday - I was freezing in Burry Port st 9am watching Oliver play football.

RK - get well soon.  We are a sickly lot!

Here we go again

Hope your interview goes well on Thursday Nutty.

Despite everything you came away with a PB, well done Sue.

Speed cameras - annoying things, but I guess we should be aware? I was caught doing 35 in a 30, wasn't in a rush as I thought the road was a 40 - misread the road and signage, so can't complain. What I can complain about was the offered course - points and a fine or the course... course was run by a private third party who levied charges; would have cost more than the fine, so I paid the fine and accepted the points!

the course is useful as most of those on it hadn't done a test in the last 20 years and so it was like a refresher....and of course it avoids the points if you need a clean driving liscence

04/03/2013 at 08:39

Morning all  sorry your all feeling under the weather in some way or another.

Running is going strangely well thanks Nutty  no idea how as I haven't run more than twice in any one week for ages

PB in Llanelli two weeks ago in the 10 miler and another PB yesterday so I'm not complaining
