Afternoon all

Back on the pooter briefly whilst it is still working , I will say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to UTC or tommorrow .

Tricia - yep I agree with 57.5 - run lots of back to backs (although mine never get up to the really big miles) and work gradually on getting your overall weekly mileage up high. 18wks is loads of time for someone who has done marathons and just come off the back of a 30+ miler at Glen Ogle . My other tip - avoid internet training plans - most of them are cr!p and either aimed at the faster runners or start with too low a mileage then suddenly you are up doing 30milers at the weekends - that is in My Most Humble Opinion of course .

Decided to 'properly' start my 100 training on Friday, so after that 10+ there, I did another 10m yesterday and I've done 30m on the bike today.

FFB - I think you should do the Fling.....because....for no other reason.....than its bloody HARD, and thats what you are gonna have to be to complete your challenge - Strength, Determination, Perserverence...... (ability to stand up in 40mph winds ) .

Mrs Mac - hope you enjoy Glasgow .

Have a good week everyone - I'm off before the computer packs in again.

Hope you get your computer sorted TP

FFB - you are mega organised as usual .

I was going to ignore Christmas this year....but relented last week after I bought some cute xmas cards from Cats Protection . Sucker for anything with fur .

lets just call it 'cross-training' i was in the Top 50 in the World Northern Soul Dance Championships! that's better than any race ive been in lately

57.5 - i'm tempted by G2E I must admit. You are selling it. Right this moment i'd struggle to run for the train to Edinburgh but by the end of the week i might be putting an entry in

happy birthday UTC and happy monday everyone else

12/11/2012 at 14:36

i'd swap it for top 50 in the Fling!

12/11/2012 at 16:11

Some of my mates can do some 'special'  moves  Well those that have any cartilage left!

12/11/2012 at 18:24

Elspeth - you having some kind of identity crisis there?

Dude - LOL, yeah me too, but I've gotten used to coming in the last 50 !

12/11/2012 at 20:30

Happy Birthday UTC

Nice one Dude

Christmas shopping??!! Nnnooooooooooooo

12/11/2012 at 20:56

TP - Some sort of crisis indeed

Partly due to said OH having been rather unwell last night and landed in hospital this morning after a bad night. Still there, not quite sure what's wrong.

12/11/2012 at 21:55

Oh no Elspeth! Hope its not too serious and he's ok? Tell him we're asking for him xx

13/11/2012 at 06:38

Elspeth, hope your OH ok and it is not too serious.

13/11/2012 at 06:41

Morning you lot, slept in !

Need to catch up later

13/11/2012 at 06:44


Oh dear Elspeth, hope you're all ok!!!

Cracking night at the Oscar Pistorius talk last night. He was really nice and kindly signed my club vest Rather handsome in the flesh I have to say

Lovely meal at the 78 afterwards.

Run/swim tonight.

TP- I dont mention the C word until at LEAST December!!
