You did, congrats PSC! 5 miles this morning to shake the legs out, what a change in weather, warm and drizzly. Andy, brilliant time, I wish I could hold half a mile at your pace. Birky, glad your niece is better, rock and  roll eh?

Morning L&G

Some very impressive running from Emmy, Kate and Andy. But the biggest congrats go to PSC for hitting the 10,000!

14mile soc this morning. Got lost but but ended up closer to home than I thought. Have not met another runner or cyclist on my sojourns on the Downs for at least three months.

First time of using the head torch in anger. It could keep those early starts going for a bit longer.

afternoon all

didn't get time to post this morning, rest day anyway

PSC - well done

birky - ooh, exciting, I would fancy that, but don't think I would be able to get up there for it. Glad your niece is finally getting better

Evening all - a NOC recovery run for me and it felt great. I rounded off the day with a cycle and weights session at the gym and feel really well recovered. Well done PSC on getting the big 10,000 post!

Well done to all that raced at the weekend Kate and Emmy well done for taking alcohol and running to the limit. Great time Andy.

Valis: Honestly mate it is 9001-9008 at top of my page, but I see it says on Hot Threads 10,008 for this thread ! So thats why I'm confused. Might change my name from Birkmyre to Trigger

Morning all - 7 miles for me too this morning, looks like the rain is clearing up now. Saw 4 OR this morning, first time in a while I've seen anyone. Busy day running around London for meetings today, then an SOC start for a meeting in Amsterdam tomorrow. Will have to decide if I get up for a ridiculous a clock run before the flight. Have a good day everyone.

morning all

no soc for me, needed the sleep today. 5 mile race with club tonight though think I might be last....

11/09/2012 at 08:44
Hi everyone! Hope everyone is doing well. No SOC due to work this morning. I'll head out tonight.

@katie - how is your ankle?
@kate - are you scoping out the Amsterdam marathon for us? how was Bacchus for you?
@mathschick - hope that the club runs goes well tonight. I know the feeling when you just want to sleep!

I seemed to have lost my SOC mojo....I got up at 5.20am got a drink of water, looked out side and it was dark and raining, and just though I don't want to do this and went back to bed.

I have boot camp to night so maybe that will inspire me (or completely knacker me)

I think its the dark morning and not being able to run through the countryside thats getting me down.

11/09/2012 at 12:30

tommy - I know the feeling about the dark mornings. Even getting up later today for work it was still dark and owls hooting. I even had the headtorch out last week so I could go on the pavements that aren't lit on the outskirts of town. Don't feel like biking in the mornings as I feel more vulnerable in the dark, so the prep for the tris I have coming up is a bit poor!


11/09/2012 at 12:36

I have the same issue. When i'm heading out it's still dark and the routes that i'd normally run down (with street lights) are all being dug up for road maintenance. Very frustrating!

@Mathschick- what headlamp are you using?

11/09/2012 at 12:42

I have a petzl tikka (2 I think) - it is very comfy and light is good. I was worried I would be annoyed by something on my head but I don't notice it

11/09/2012 at 12:42

well, apart from the light it throws out of course!

11/09/2012 at 18:40

Tommy: We've all been there.

11/09/2012 at 21:07

really chuffed - did the 5 mile race in 54:11 wasn't quite last either. That is a PB for me. Never done a 5 miler before so it always was going to be a pb, but to get under an hour was brill, under 55 mins and I am over the moon
