12TH JULY 2005
it was a lovely day indeed, a bit windy on the sea front, but good (I think) practice for 3 weeks time
I've now entered the hallowed halls of taper, the best bit of marathon training!
So glad you are feeling better Nutty, I was thinking after some things you said the other day, you seem to have had similar symptoms to whiplash which could possibly have happened when you fell. The recovery timing is about right as well! What do you think?
Christmas all done and dusted. We had a great time, food was good and lots of laughter too. Managed to fit 10 around my table, but of a squeeze but we did it! Can't believe the amount of food I cooked and how little is left! Still a bit of Christmas pud left for after my morning run though - yum yum!
Glad it went well Tracey. It is surprising with food. It always takes a while to prepare and goes in a flash!!
Made pie to take to Cardiff today
Spent the weekend baking and catching up with friends so work will be hard tomorrow!
Hope you all had a good break too
Looks nice out there!
Work this morning then off to St Fagans for a treasure hunt yn Gymraeg, not sure how that's going to go!
That sounds nice Tracey. Hope you enjoyed.
A bit warmer outside today which is great
has everyone gone on holiday?
coldcoldcold again yesterday! I took the wimp option and 'ran' on the dreadmill.
I have a strange feeling that Llanelli is going to be 'warm for the time of year'! All this trianing in icy conditions and we are going to be faced with hot sunshine and no wind, mark my words
I was feeling like Billy No Mates Sue!!
The marathon will be great. You will do well after all your hard work.
It was lovely last night, we ran through Clyne and Singleton - lots of primroses, crocuses and daffodils. Not too cold either, although I nearly got blown off my bike going in to work.
Ran through Singleton park tonight and it was lovely as you say, Tracey. Daffodils out and fresh air. Can't beat running, even short distances.
Weekend again. Where do the weeks go?
its still cold out there but hopefullt te wind will drop a bit as i have a 200km cycle from tewskebury in the morning.......better go to bed now as have to get up early
Evening ... 200km eh Seren ? One hell of a ride. I have no idea how you put up with the cold.
Soup for lunch and soup for tea here. Both nice. May have a yoghurt too.
Have an entry for the Forest of Dean Half on Sunday but really do not know if I can be bothered to go. There is nothing like owning a truck to put you off driving long distances. Forget the MPG, I am saving ££££'s by not feeling like going places !
I have managed to do the clyne path a couple of times since the clocks changed. Since I normally run at night I rarley get up there in the days.
Good luck with the Marathon Sue. I am not running one, will defer my london place for the first time in 12 years.
good for you Alex
I've been to Wind Street on a hen party! Quite a civilised one, everyone has gone home now, it was getting a bit bizzy there by the time I left. I like the lunchtime ones, a couple of glasses of wine, a nice meal and home in time for an early night
Busy day for you WA. Hope Daniel's jab was done without too much pain. Don't worry about racing. Sometimes life takes over. The lighter nights are nice.
Sue - hen party sounds good. Lovely day for it too.
Helped nephew out with test for a job today so visited family today.
Seren - well done on the bike ride. When is your next competition? Can you make it to the pie fest?
Cheers Sue, he was briefly upset. I told him what he was there for and he asked the doctor to put it in his right leg which she did.
Wind St eh ? Is there anywhere down there that is not minging filthy ? Its a bit of a hell-hole I believe.
Watching the news now. Wonder what North Korea are up to.
when is the pie fest again Nutty.......
I had a beautiful bike ride it was a perfect day....
Seren - it was a stunning day yesterday. The pie fest is on 27 April.
WA - it is scary whats going on over there. My nephew is planning a holiday to Korea in the next few weeks
