Right who's buying the coffee, and don't get the cheap stuff as that is a gripe i have in our house, As Jo says we we wont black ball anyone. lol.

Just had a look to see how much it was to design and buy t-shirts on line, just a basic wording and white t-shirt with name on back £13.99 without posting.

you said on tuther thread Jo if i had waited another day we could have gone out for a run,Damn  i was actualy wondering at the time if i should have left it till tomorrow, the wind was crazy in places along the canal. i drank so much water when i came back though.

Booey, i dont know if Telford is a stretch to far away from you, december 18th i think, but 10k £8, got a mention in Mens Running magazine for november, two lap course.

Steve - 18th Dec I am more than likely going to do the Santa Run, Stanwick Lakes nr Wellingbrough othwise I maybe would have considered Telford although yes it is a way from me

On another thread I use there is another little community of us like us here and one of the chaps keeps a list of all the races we are participating in and updates when we add more.  Maybe something we could do on here???  Just a though   that way I could look out for what you sign up for and if not to far also do it

Ive registered with Park Run Coventry, but maybe a bit and miss when i can do that, as Chloe as Tae Kwon do saturday mornings, so wont be able to do every week,

How far is the santa run Booey ?

I am taking my mum and dad over to Coventry Monday morning to get a coach to go on holiday, anyone fancy joining me for a run, i will be then going onto the Memorial Park to do a run there. it's a 5k circuit all the way round and i know the surronding area well ish so we could do a bit of a cicuit outside the park to, parking is free, there is a coffee shop to.

Planning to do

Stratford Raceway 10k November

Kingsbury water park 10k weekend after

Telford 10k december 18th

Yes all supporters welcome for the Bham half marathon ( bham great run still cant get used to calling it  that )

I am wearing a red running vest that says " I am running for Bham Childrens Hospital "

I wore it for the first time this morning did a nice steady 10k first one since sunday in 1 hour 8mins, along the canals, it was very windy and when i did run on the roads, got lots of horn honks too, i enjoy the horn honking, well u know now i'm a veteran runner i have to make the most of it!!! 

Yes i'm going to do kinsbury hopefully, and fancy the telford 10k too as thats not too far away

I cant do this monday steve got so much on and got to go visiting someone otherwise another day i could have possibly done it 

you will have to come over to my neck of the woods, i'm planning on running monday, weds and friday next week if you fancy any of those days Monday will just be a short 3miler weds will probably be 6 or 7miles friday about 4miles

the following week taking it real steady again monday 4miles weds 3miles and friday 2miles and then Sunday 13.1miles eek!!!!!

Yes i like the idea of adding the runs Booey and keeping a list of them, it will be good to look back too and know what the courses are like too

06/10/2011 at 16:04

Firday is a possibility Jo, will have to let you know how the week pans out, and let you know midweek. planning to do at least 7 miles tomorrow, slow i should imagine, but if i can go further will do.

06/10/2011 at 16:19

Steve - I live in a village midway between Northamton and Rugby so a tad closer to you than Northampton

Jo - sorry if I am repeating myself but is this your first HM?  Whats the highest mileage you have done in prep for it?

I am about to start the Hal Higdon Novice 2 HM Training Schedule and see how I get on

06/10/2011 at 16:22
Sorry Steve Santa Run is a 10K
06/10/2011 at 19:03
torn between two now, but will probably go for Telford 10k. just had the mother of all rain storms here
06/10/2011 at 21:54
Right, i've put the chairs straight, turned everything off at the walls and is about to turn the lights off and lock the doors and go off to bed. Had enough of today and of people who talk and say nasty things about people just because they maybe slightly different to them, shouldn't let it bother me but when it upsets my kids that is a line that is crossed
06/10/2011 at 23:54

aww Steve sorry to hear that, hope you feel better after a nights sleep, chin up xx

Boeey yes this is my first HM, i ran 11miles in the killer heat last week in 2hours 17mins, it was soooooooo hot worse than the northampton 10k and thats saying something.  I am tapering down now so i hope that the last 2miles will be pure adrenalin and ppl cheering that will get me thru 13.1 miles

yes just let me know about friday steve, it would be fun if you can make it

I'm off to Liverpool tomorrow, hoping to get on here but all depends on how sucessful internet connection is, i'm doing Fab Four run and  bf is doing Liverpool Marathon

it is apparently really windy up there eek!!!

Went out with club again last night, did 4.5 miles.  Was hard going and I struggled, there was only 4 of us and they are quicker, I really need a bigger group with more mixture  I kept running all the way but new group new people you have to don't you and maybe its a good thing   I still have a couple of other options so keeping my options open

Today I feel totally shattered, tired not achey.  Finishing work at 1.30 today so going for a 10K round the ressy on my own

Prob not back on here till Monday so have a good one and happy running
