Happy birthday Tommy.

Birky, I hope you did 4x 20 press ups to make up for the shame.

Morning all - I'm letting the side down, no SOC for me this morning as track later and I'm not quite back to a double session yet. Happy birthday Tommy, does that mean I have an excuse to have a drink tonight too? Although after track it's pretty much the last thing I want to do! How was the pub after the marathon Emmy, pictures look good on Facebook, I still feel guilty I leaned into Foxy's birthday cake and had icing down my front until a nice lady wiped me down.

Hi everyone,

Relatively happy with my running at the moment.  I did 10 miles on Saturday, which was my longest run for 5 weeks and felt gooooooood.  Yesterday was my longest SOC run at 6miles, then this morning did what started as a easy 2 miles and turned into a couple of miles tempo, when I saw an OR in the distance and decided to see how close I could get to him before I passed home!

Knee is a tiny bit better during my runs than it has been recently, a little worse straight after them, but then I am running further or harder this past few days.  Going to book a sports massage today (if I get time).

And Happy Birthday Tommy!!

Didn't run this morning as planned, not because its my birthday but because I am not well Stomach problems, must have had something dodgy yesterday.

Anyhoo Thanks for the Birthday whishes

Hopefully I will feel better later so I can have a coulpe of drinks this evening

KateF The Ironman Training proper starts next week. I still have to work out a schedule but it will probably consist of loads of cycling quite a bit of running and a bit of swimming( as little as I can get away with, I don't enjoy swimming)

Tommy: Happy Birthday

Martin: Sounds like you're going well.

Currently reading 'The Secret Olympian'.

morning all

achy after a long swim yesterday, so probably won't swim today. May go to the gym and do some weights instead

have started reading 'Keep on running' but I am finding his style a bit annoying

Morning all - 5.7 miles, very slow, 1 fox, 1 Hovis van and 1 OR. Whose book is it MC? Training for a parkrun PB this morning then valis? Birky, who is the secret Olympian? PSC and Tommy, hope you both enjoyed the birthday drinks. MK, glad the knee is improving. Running around all over London with clients today, hope to get back for a spin, and maybe a swim later, got to get some lessons booked. Happy hump day.

a very mild and pleasant 8 miles done.... very wet on the trails, too wet for road shoes

I'm off to Amazingstoke shortly for a day of x-brand networking! 

80 press ups!  were you chanting ....."I must I must Improve My Bust".... not that that would have been appropriate obviously! 

14/11/2012 at 07:58

Ah Amazingstoke, happy days PSC!

14/11/2012 at 08:38

Morning all.  Emmy sorry I missed that you were running at the weekend, another marathon ticked off, congratulations.  Tommy a belated Happy Birthday to you

Out at 5.15am for a 6.25 miler, felt more like a 10km  Ran round the town and probably will till the leaves have stopped falling down the railway walk, a few cars seen, delivery lorry at the back of the Co-op and numerous cats eyes though actually only saw the owner of one set of them.

Afternoon all.

Very mild this morning and had to change the route slightly due to forestry work so added an extra 2 hills to an already hilly run! We're avoiding the tree felling areas because we're not sure whether Rusty will run over to investigate and maybe jump into one of those branch shredding devices or have a tree fall on him. Not a pleasant thought!

Saw my first house with its Christmas lights up when going through Renfrew on bus to/from work today !

Kate: No idea, not a track and field athlete I don't think.

psc: No chanting, just counting 1,2,3...

Good morning all

6 miles this morning

Nw 2 cats, 1 fox, 3 loose horses running down the road towards me Thankfully they stopped and headed back before going down a side road ,hopefully where the field they escaped from is. Typically hadn't taken phone with me and didn't  come across any phone boxes on the rest of the run. Reported it when I got in.

Kate,  No  park run pb for sometime I imagine but first week for a while where I have got out for 5 runs. Now to start building again.


15/11/2012 at 05:56

Morning - no SOC for me, complicated travel plans for meetings today, but will NOC later. Should I just say morning Ranger valis?

15/11/2012 at 06:02

Morning Kate,

Foggy up here NW wise. Thick fog in fact.
