Wow we've reached 30,000 ! Cheers to Robert for starting this thread.

4M Tempo run, fairly flowing along which was pleasing.

definitely up for that FFB!! Sounds great!!

Hope the house move is going well 57.5!

Turbo this morning as very tired and couldnt face a run. 3 runs this week will suffice.

News on bf... will be back from US Friday morning... but, he has been offered a job there!!!! Still lots of negotiations to be done and no idea of timescale at the moment. Could be later in the year next year (ie August time) but really not sure yet. Would be for a year  Santa Cruz California... sounds lovely

Morning all. Managed to clear the migraine and got a cracking 6.5 miles in last night .

Meant to say, Elspeth, Loch Katrine not that easy to get to without transport, but if you base yourself in Glasgow I should be able to arrange a lift for you.

I now need to get a move on: numbers, medals, mile markers, water ...... not doing prizes or goodie bags, but may see if I can get someone to donate some freebies

Off for a plod before it rains.....get them winter miles in ..... what doesnt kill you makes you stronger...or summat like that ....

Happy Belated Birthday 57.5 and Happy New House too.

UTC - exciting indeed.

just in from breezy 5.5 miles, haven't been getting very far this week.

Count me in for Loch Katrine then FFB, do you plan any posters etc, may be able to interest some of the others in the Half/10k.

OH just had that bug too CC - not going near him!

I got out of my flat last night and sorted the mortgage today so progress is being made. Just a few weeks in temporary accomodation and then move in 20th Jan! Finally time to run tonight after 2 days of chaos.

California? Do it!

Nights are fair drawin' in...

Tri: Great news.

20/12/2012 at 05:53


up at 5 this morning to chat to bf on skype from San Fransisco. Just going to jump on turbo. Last day at work today then last christmas pressies to get. Almost there.

Happy moving 57.5!

morning Tri :Last day at work for me today too.

 Just finished reading Victoria Pendletons book. Interesting read.

4.5M Steadily done.

20/12/2012 at 07:38

morning BM

good turbo session this morning.

what did you make of her book? Id be interested to know as I find her quite annoying  (ok, more spoiled and ungrateful....)... off to work now.

Morning all! Good weights and abs session last night. Probably should have beena run but did not fancy the rain, and then did not fancy the spin bike either.

Can't wait until I finish tomorrow for the Christmas break. It has been a mad few weeks one way or another.

Happy holidays everyone - nearly there .

Technically I finished my last job before Xmas (or at least, the work I had left in the house) on Tuesday, but I am still awaiting some extra info I need in order to edit a report I wrote months ago, and was promised 'before Xmas'.......soooooo, I won't start celebrating the holidays until 5pm Friday, just in case !!!! There is still every chance it will come, with a note saying 'could you just finish this before New Year, but don't bother sending it in, cos we won't be here!!!!' .

Although if one is to believe the 'End of the World' predictions, maybe we should all just have a big party tonight? Woo Hoooooooo  (What I dont get, is if they are all so certain its ending, why are these same people stockpiling food (or worse, guns? ) cos, like, if it ends, there will be nothing left, world kapput, innit?

Hideous out, glad today is my rest day! Almost fell asleep at 9pm last night , all this running palaver tires you out .

Get well soon everyone with lurgyfications !

Tri: I enjoyed it. She seemed honest about her upbringing and open about those she came into contact with and had conflict with. It kinda mirrored the bbc documentary on her that was shown just before the Olympics. There a fascinating insight into her rivalry with Mears.

I've now got Bradley Wiggins autobiography to read now.

Sorry about Mr ffb's auntie Good news about the marathon though. We'll definately be up for it - well I will & hubby will be if he's not working. Are you setting a limit on numbers?

How exciting UTC, California here you come?!

Still no running for me but I think I'm finally turning the corner on this lurgy nonsense.

20/12/2012 at 18:04

I cannot say I know much about VP, but since she did that shampoo (?) advert, she just makes me laugh  I cannot take her sporting performance seriously since then ...probably not the reaction she intended her 'public' to have ! Mind you, anyone seen that hilarious add where the Cav brushes his hair back - now that is very funny!!!

Hmmmm, maybe athletes should be more careful who advises them?

Just in case the world should end tommorrow......

'Sixty 25th of Decembers, fifty nine 4th of Julys

You can't have too many good times, children

You can't have too many lines

Take a good look at these crows feet

Sitting on the prettiest eyes

Well my eyes might look like the map of the town........

But you'll never hear the crack of a frown when you are here'


With compliments to Beautiful South .
