WP - I'm not sure I can make it Tueday now so not sure I can give a lift. Are you able to make alternative arrangements to get there just in case?

Sorry - You know I will try my best to be there as I love our 'races' !!

Oh and the pasta is quite good too...

Thanks Alex will look at it later a bit busy in work!!


No problem will jog down as my warm up:-)
Sorry you are unable to make it

I know you would be there if you could I will just work even harder so you will have to train harder to beat me next time;-)

10 miles this morning and well it was hard the air quality was rubbish and I must have had my go slow legs on!!


Happy Birthday for tomorrow:-)
Hope you get to do something really nice...no alcohol you are in training;-)

It is the only food at a race I have ever eaten(as I am most difficult to please) and it was tasty:-)

WP where do you live? I can give you a lift if you want. I normally drive to the National Pool from my house and then jog down to the start which takes about 5 minutes so nice warm up.

Thanks for the birthday wishes,am having a very low key birthday actually (I say low key after last year's birthday which was my 21st so it was a birthday week!). Few quiet drinks with the girls tonight (water of course) and then going for a meal with my parents and sister tomorrow night in 698 which I am very much looking forward to. Then nice 12 miles Sunday morning at 10am.

Happy birthday to you for tomorrow too,have a good one.Have you got any plans?

Oh - is it both your birthdays tomorrow ? Happy birthdays both !

How you doing Alex? You 5King next Tues?
No following me in the 1st half again!
08/07/2005 at 14:20

Hi there, yes doing ok today. Busy morning & just been to the hairdresser and got what I asked for; "For £7 please make me look like a scalped pineapple" !

Every time I go to Taffy's in uplands I get the one that can't cut hair !

Yes, I'll be doing the 5k next tues, and if I have my way one day you will be following me so watch out ! Just gotta get that second half pace sussed out.

Ooooooohh sounds like a challenge! ;-)
08/07/2005 at 14:24

How about the last Llanelli 5k - £5 - not that I'm confident but by damn I'll have a go.
08/07/2005 at 14:25
Ok then,you've got a deal!
08/07/2005 at 14:25
Bring it on!
08/07/2005 at 14:31

Ok. Deal. Things are gonna get serious from now then. No more trots in the park for me !
08/07/2005 at 14:43
Hee hee,nothing like a good challenge.

I'm going to taper for the race and everything so look out! Saying that, I normally do better in a race when my preparation is terrible. I mean,look at the Llanelli 10K for example,I tapered for that and ate the right things,drank the right things and my knee went and died on me!

BTW i'm having an x-ray next Tuesday on my knee so will know in a few weeks if anything has shown up on it.

So, invest £2.50 of my future winnings bribing your doctor ....
08/07/2005 at 14:58
Alex,if you beat me it'll be good on you because i'm running pretty damn well at the moment (touch wood) so you'll have to have a stormer!

May the best person win!

Now let's have no more of this pressure talk!

WP / Jen - Happy birthday to you both tomorrow.

I think you should both eat loads and loads of cake and drink heavily all weekend!
08/07/2005 at 16:20
Thanks Greeny,not a drip will pass my lops!
08/07/2005 at 17:21

Jen, I agree with Greeny and think you should both eat loads and loads of cake and drink heavily all weekend. In fact perhhaps you could stretch your birthday out for a week or so.

"Now let's have no more of this pressure talk!" - Whats wrong with some pre-match psycology then ? I've just gotta strike at the right angle.
08/07/2005 at 18:26
Thanks Greeny /Alex

But I dont think so not a drop of alchol will pass my lips or cake or any thing that will damage my chances of a PB on Tuesday:-)

Anyone want to carry my bags tomorrow I am going SHOPPING;-)


22 a wee slip of a lass and a year older than my offspring:-( god I feel old!!!
Now make sure it is water all weekend:-) seriously have a great time.

Thanks for offer of lift but I like to do a warm up so the run down will suit me(Killay) anyway have a feeling your warm up would leave me for dead;-)

Plans for tomorrow early morning 6 mile run, Cardiff shopping (i love shoppingi n Cardiff)was to go to London but decided not too go after yesterday:-( Lunch out with friends then back home as I am training early Sunday morning so family will call around(that sounds so sad) and just water all weekend.
Plus my mum is ill and I am bit out of sorts.
When you get to my age you just let them slip by as I have had so many:-(
But as a friend said you should be celebrating surviving another year and coming out of it partially unscathed.

i bet that was one heck of a week last year:-)
Son's 21st in 8 weeks:-(


I dont think you are doing too bad at all;-)

Greeny we could lay bets on who will win out of Alex and Jen??

Then if Greeny turns up as I know George is not racing(we do like to compete against each other allthough he is winning at the moment:-(

Alex and Jen could bet on which of us will win no pressure on either camp;-)

Greeny we all know you will beat me as you have been training so hard and eating such a healthy diet and not touching the alchol and I am not up to your standard......(do you think this is working;-)

Alex will try part of your route Sunday I can do my usual up to Marquis and follow the route and make my way back home should be about 13-14 for me was looking at only doing 13 but see how it goes?

I have been watching my weight for 3 weeks and......Lost 5lb:-) still a way to go but it feels good to actual shift some weight!!
