Should have said bf came 44th in 1:18... and he was disappointed. Wish I could be as disappointed as him

Legs a bit tight today so after swim and lunch am giving run a miss. Definite run tomorrow though, after metafit class then climbing at night. Club run Wednesday.

Chilling with a new book tonight as I finished Mark Beaumont's 2nd book (the Americas one) while away!! Excellent read.

Kind of slept in today. very foggy out here this morning.

UTC:Well done and same to your bf.

57.5: A well done to you too.

TP: All the bset for Jedburgh.

well done UTC despite the illness. and congrats to your bf. going that fast is one way to avoid the crowds!

run this morning was hard work at all stages including convincing myself to get out of bed! but you always regret the runs you don't do more than the runs that you do do which was the thought that dragged me out.

supposed to get colder this week which will be fun for those runs near the weekend.

A cold snap on the way according to the BBC, by Saturday night it could 'feel like' 0 degrees in London. How will they cope with these Arctic temperatures?

-4 here last night but once the fog cleared it was a lovely day here in the Cairngorms with loads of sunshine. Enjoyed a nice 5k off road run down by the river.

Not bad when out. Dropped nephew off at Glasgow airport and it was mobbed.

Morning Tri

Back later.

Morning all, cold snap good for my training  A new contractor started here yesterday from 'dahn souf' and was complaining that it was cold  We all thought it was pretty mild and that the office was very warm. We even had a couple of windows open.

No training yesterday as I had a meeting after work. I should probably have got organised for running home afterwards but didn't. Run tonight and some weights. Will probably go to the park and do speed intervals.

off out shortly... definitely feeling colder even now  good for your training FFB though yes

true about regretting the runs you dont do LB!

Right, best be off, have a good day everyone.

Evening all

When is a quote for total cost of work, not a quote for total cost of work?

When you get it from a car servicing dealership ...........

Had to do a good run this afternoon to burn it off.........

HI TP. Looks like a promising forecast for the weekend. chilly, bright and sunny. I'd settle for that

23/10/2012 at 22:33

back from climbing. good fun.

looking forward to XC this weekend if the weather is to be good!! Although I dont have any objections to mud

24/10/2012 at 05:50

Morning you lot

TC: Your car servicing quote never came from a  dealership with initials A.C. did it ?

Morning Tri: Glad you enjoyed your climbing last night

24/10/2012 at 07:48

Morning all, spin bike, abs and lower body weights last night. I should have run but for the first time since I started the intermittent fasting I felt too hungry to do a run. Definitely running tonight.

24/10/2012 at 08:51

morning BM and FFB

off to the gym just shortly. last day off, back to work tomorrow

bf off for 1st velodrome session tonight... exciting!! I'll see how he gets on before I decide whether to book or not.

Dude - that weather suits me fine too .

Birkmyre - no, this one is a Peugeot dealership over in Paisley. I think they are all 'at it'.....there are just varying degrees of 'at it' . Told the sales service woman 'Total' to most people means 'Total', not oh this is the total but now we will charge you separately for this and that .

If I carried on my business the way *most* car sales people do I would have been out of business years ago, but these b*ggers get away with it because there is always a fresh supply of customers through the door .

Hopefully will get car back by Friday, but if not have contingency plans in place for getting to Jedburgh.

Today is the last day for entry to Jedburgh (various races) just in case anyone is dithering .

24/10/2012 at 14:57

TO - hope you get the car fixed before weekend!

Havning a very lazy day off but did get 11.5 miles in, the sunshine has gone though and it's drizzly but still warm.

24/10/2012 at 15:40

It has turned into a lovely afternoon. I will going over to Pollok for my run and make the most of being able to run in the parks before the clocks go back and it is dark for my evening runs.

24/10/2012 at 19:04

Last day of my mini-break today No running but did paint my bedroom

Like your idea of a lazy day Elspeth that includes an 11.5 miler

Hope you had a good run ffb

Boo to rubbish car servicing

Always meaning to try a xc race UTC. Mud is good

24/10/2012 at 19:09

TP: Just wondering as we've had terrible service from the A.C dealership in Paisley.

24/10/2012 at 19:53

Lol also to Elspeths idea of 'lazy' !

Birkmyre - this lot are just over the road from AC in Paisley - but probably not as bad . After enquiries it turned out the cost was about normal (ie they are all in on it together with over-charging for really simple car parts), it was just the way it was put to me that I took umbrage at, ie 'it is going to be xxxx total', then later 'no it is actually this total because when we said 'total' before we didnt include the charge for diagnostics'' .

Worse thing of all, possibly, was they were going to charge me £38 for putting 2litres of oil into the car ......honestly, I sh!t you not......I asked them for a breakdown of charges because I couldnt believe how much it was, over £500, and this was what came out!!!! I said it is a bloody Peugeot 307 not a Grand Prix racing car, I can buy oil for a tenner from Morrisons garage and put it in myself . Really, really could not believe the cheek of it.........................

Now, because I have questioned their prices, they are being arsey about when I can get the car back......but screw them, because I have another car I can borrow from a relative.....I will go on 3rd party Insurance for the weekend, and they can cocoa for their fecking money .

24/10/2012 at 20:03

TP: Yeah I know who you mean.  'At least Dick Turpin wore a mask when he was robbing people.'

Elspeth: Yeah a real lazy day, only 11.5miles...
