Morning all! Well done everyone who's already been out. Two in two days for me, this is almost starting to be habit forming! 3.5 miles again at 6:30am on a wet but surprisingly warm-ish morning. Nature watch - slugs and snails and (1 - attached to its alive and well body) puppy dog tails, everything else had more sense to stay out of the wet.

Morning all, rest day for me.  That is a quick walk MC, bet the kids don't like shopping with you!  Quick payout Valis, as you say worth clarifying what it is for.

Morning all, took a different route again this morning to avoid the forestry work so added an extra hill and some deep sandy stretches. Rusty's fitting in well with the family and loves his runs with us. He's not so sure about going in water though, which is strange for a springer spaniel!

MC, hope the recovery continues apace but agree with PSC that you don't want to rush things too much. Sounds like you're being sensible though. 

NW this morning - several crows, a jay and a skylark!

Afternoon all - 6 miles for me on tired legs after yesterday's exercise extravaganza, 2 x OR, 1 Kingsmill van and a dog. Ironman study briefing this evening at Hatfield Uni, excited and scared in equal measures. Happy birthday Mrs V Snr. Welcome all the new folk, and well done on the comeback TG. Chris, Rusty sounds sensible, it's freezing out there, forget getting in the water. MC, perhaps the Rio power walk 50K in 2016 for you?

Good morning all

Got up, got ready then just came over a bit apathetic so back to bed now for an hour.


Tommy, Mrs V is down at Hever tomorrow do you know any reputable cab numbers as she needs one to take her from the station to the castle and then later to accomadation she has booked.

Happy hump day everyone.

5M Steadily done. Cold, dry. No wind

Valis: Poor esult for Blue slast night.

Chris: Glad Rusty is settling in.

NW: 1 owl, 1 Kingsmill Van, 4 horses. 1 Large Christmas Tree in shopping area.

No SOC today as I going to take it easy getting back. The plus point is that it is peeing down this orning so I missed that.

Hey Valis, depends on which Station she is arriving at, if its edenbridge then I don't know. If its tobridge I know a few.

Morning all - 5 miles in the rain, 1 OR and that was it. Ironman briefing last night was good, and scary, training starts 21 Jan, it is going to be very hard to scale back the running but I'm sure my body will enjoy it, so just 2 months to thrash out as much as I can. Happy hump day folks.
21/11/2012 at 08:12

Got up early this morning not for a run but to cook dinner for tonight so that I can go for a 3-5 miler tonight with the local club and get back to some nice grub.

All in the name of running so still SOC eh!

21/11/2012 at 08:18

Out of the door at 5.15am for a just short of 7 miler, NW was one lost rabbit on the industrial estate.  Got stopped by a guy lost in Hadleigh looking for the industrial estate, a lot happens at 6 in the morning on that place

Valis, no run but still a very early post.  Hope all is well. Good running Birky and Kate, Becky I assume it's a slow roast!  We'll all come round.

21/11/2012 at 08:55

Tommy,Turns out lingfield as she has to book in at hotel first.

JF50, Normal time I'm up at or awake at is 3.30ish can stay in bed but find that I just get more uncomfortable and just drift in and out of sleep.

Birky, Indeed  very poor.

21/11/2012 at 09:34

No SOC this morning due to a poorly little boy keeping us awake all night with his coughing. Back on it tomorrow though. Well done those who've made it out if the weather where you are is anything like it was here - cold, windy and chucking it down with rain. May go out for an afternoon run if the weather improves and I can summon the energy...

Hi Valis sorry can't help with Lingfield, to far West of me.

Hello everyone,

Couple of rest days recently, Monday because I had an early start to travel to a meeting in Peterborough and because I didn't get home until gone 11pm I had a little lay in yesterday, so back SOCing today with a 5.15am 6miler in the drizzle.  The cat followed me for about 100meters then turned back!

When I saw the sports massage guy last week he suggested Epsom Salts in a bath after running, so I got some off the internet and gave that a try today - leg feels good but a soak in tha bath rather than a shower before work means I am feeling ever so slightly sleepy  

Nottsgriff, SOC running does become habit quite quickly - I'm new to it this month, I've always ran of an evening but decided to give morning running a go for November and see if it works for me.... So far, it is!

Afternoon all,

Wet and windy out this morning and very muddy in places but quite mild. I've bought one of those flashing dog collars for Rusty so that I can keep an eye on him when he decides to run off somewhere. At least he comes back when I shout or whistle  although it'll be interesting to see how he responds when he spots his first deer!

NW: several crows

Off to see Skyfall tonight - can't wait to see how they used the footage shot on Hankley  Common.

21/11/2012 at 15:09

Chris, it's amazing, you'll enjoy it, although they have made it look nicely Scottish.

22/11/2012 at 06:07


5M Fartlek. Not a bad run

NW: 1 owl, 1 fox, 2 llamas, 4 horses,1 large Christmas Tree, 1 Kingsmill Van,

Christmas Decorations/Lights: 1st one spotted

valis: A shock with change of manager again at Blues. Gers won Tax case against HMRC.

Good morning all

Nw 1 fox

Wave to all

Morning valis; I couldn't believe either news. I simply don't rate Benitez though he won Cl for lLivverpool in 2005. Some of the Blues managerial appointments and sackings have been totally baffling
