Morning gang... We SOC runners are a growing trend does that mean we are trending or trendy?

Kate , I spent half an hour thoroughly cleaning my shoes and they have come up new. I'm going to try some new ones though. I've been running in asics gel Fuji trail shoes. My OH runs in mizuno wave harriers which have a much more aggressive grip. And they appear to be better made with a bit more support in them. And they are only ??30 on line! It's a steal.

Welcome Ardi.

I have a tacx flow turbo. I notice however that this has now evolved and they have put a poota onto it! Mine is a basic trainer and then I use my garmin with HR and cadence sensors. Which reminds me, I really should set it up for the winter.

Morning gang, happy hump day.

Good morning all

After two days of running to and from work my legs are feeling it a bit,today and possibly for the rest of the week going to cycle in. This will allow me to restock cloths and food at work and give my legs a rest before this weekends running.

Chris, Believe me  depending on what motorbike I get I will be dropping the running to work and either cycling or riding, much prefer running when there's nothing about rather than having to run around people and stopping to cross roads until there's a break in the traffic.

Happy hump day everyone.

soc turbo session for me. Kate - I have an elite chrono elastogel, it was about £140 from wiggle, it is very good. I also use my garmin with a speed cadence sensor. It is really quick to get the bike on and off, so I don't leave it set up - the kids would just mess about on it

Morning. After a couple of weeks of due to pinging a muscle behind my knee in daft 10k impromptu silly speed (I got a PB though 40mins) I'm back on the trails. Did 18 miles this morning. It was so amazing out. Beautiful sunrise.

Charles: Well done on your 10k PBb and the 18 miler.

Really cold and frosty one up here today.Brrrrrrrr ! feet scruching through frosty leaves and on the paths.

NW: 1 Full Moon, 1 Owl, 1 kingsmillvan, 4 horses, 1 dog, 2 Large Christmas Trees. 1 very cold looking cyclist

Morning all - just 4 miles this morning as coaching tonight. Beautiful moon, not quite as cold as I thought it would be 1 x OR with his poodle. MC and PSC thanks for the recommendations on the turbo, pick up my new bike at the weekend, woo! Charles good 10K time, well done. Valis, hope you enjoy the bike, and birky, wrap up warm.

Morning all, cold here this morning as well, can see the lycra coming out of store soon 9 miles but out at a leisurely 6.45am, late start at work today.  NW, moon good here as well, muntjac deer, two dog walkers with dogs, field of shetland ponies.

Enjoy the new bike Kate, and same Valis though slightly more motorised I am guessing.

beautiful moon here, but no soc for me - needed to try to catch up on some sleep

gym after work though, so don't worry birky I am not slacking!

Well my running buddy and I debated by text last night whether to go out this morning because of possible ground frost, but decided to wait and see .... which meant I got up at 1.15 & 3.30 to check , before actually getting up at 5.20 to meet at 6, to do 4 miles - so am a tad tired now!

Hat, Gloves & 2 tops required this morning, but ran under a full moon and stars - not got the hang of NW yet .... watch this space!

nothing wrong with a bit of frost - I am the clumsiest person and don't slip on frost. It is that horrible ice that forms when snow has been compacted after several days that is the problem and would keep me inside, or I would run on the gritted road surface but ready to get out of the way of cars

29/11/2012 at 19:31

Yes, it was chilly out there, going to get colder too! No point checking until 5.15 though Adri!

29/11/2012 at 19:38

I know Kate - was one of those, because I woke up & it was on my mind, I had to get up and have a sneaky peak!

29/11/2012 at 22:27

5.30 10k run for me this morning. Cold hurt my hands so much though, I was in tears by time I got home!

Hate cold!

Cold and frosty one again, brrrrr.

5M Fartlek done and I'm just thawing out

Maths: Good for you. Coach is impressed

The sianz: Welcome,

Morning! Went out yesterday at 6, getting back to SOC. My niece even decided to join me! Just off out again now, love these frosty mornings.

Morning dobster. Good for you getting to niece to join you.

Happy St Andrews Day to any Scots on here.

NW: 1 owl, 3 Large ChristmasTrees, 1 fox, 1 Kingsmillvan, 4 horses galloping across their field.
