Yes thanks. Good luck in the snow. It sounds like we, in Kent, might be the only snow free county......

No snow in the North West (ya ya!), have been to Boot camp training this morning; running tomorrow.

no snow here

I seem to be having a lazy but very tired week

PSC - hope you are feeling ok, lots of bugs around at the moment, loads of kids off school, it is that time of year!

Morning all, out of the door at 5.15am and just a hint of sleet, after a few miles it was snow, looking pretty in the headtorch, and eventually a good layer on rads and pavements, not slippery though so really nice running in soft virgin snow, 7 miles in all.

Morning - a fair bit of snow in Surrey this morning but not too cold. Had a good run around the MOD land at Hankley and saw a few others out in the dark - 2 dog walkers, both of whom had two dogs, and a runner. One of the dog walkers was strolling around with a pair of border collies which he was controlling with a big shepherd's crook type thing and oddly, he was wearing shorts.

Rusty had his first experience of chasing a deer. He almost caught up with it before losing it in thick heather which he couldn't jump over as well as his quarry. He's a quieter hunter than Jackson so managed to get pretty close before the deer saw him - Jackson used to bark and howl too much. Anyway those deer have had it pretty good for the last few months but now they'll have to be a bit more on their guard!

Once you've filled your freezer with venison Chris I'll take the next one

JF50, we don't eat meat so you can have the lot!

Hi all,  I've struggled to get to the forum recently, but have kept up the SOC running into my 2nd month now, so I guess I am officially a convert?!

6.3miles this morning, light drizzle but no snow unlikelots of you by the sounds of it.  Saturday I Parkran, no PB (20:37, so 11 seconds off) but most people seemed a good minute or 2 off due to the cold and slightly frosty pavements, so I was reletively pleased, especially as it has brought my runbritainrankings handicapdown to 10.1 - 1 more parkrun and I should be single figures, which I'm well chuffed with.

Feeling a little sorry for myself today, as I had to go to the hospital to have a couple of old broken tooth roots taken outunder sedation, so I'm sore, groggy and wondering if I will be fit to run tomorrow?

MK - let yourself have a lie-in tomorrow, you don't want to be out with a sore mouth in the cold air - it will make it worse

well done on your parkrun

Evening all. First post on this thread. 

Since the arrival of my first child 8 weeks ago, getting out for a run after work in the evening is just not happening...I'm starting to come to the realisation that stupid o'clock starts it is going to have to be!

I have a question, how do people fuel for a long run first thing? Someone said to me they used to get up at 4am, eat breakfast, get another hours kip on the sofa and then head out at 5...is this going to be nessecary for a long run first thing?


05/12/2012 at 19:41

Guilty as charged

Hi! You're not alone, I was out at 5:20 this morning. I'm a beginner, so no long miles for me but a real starter's schedule with run-walk-run, but it helps me to start the day with a clear head. Enjoying the quiet environment, feels like the world is mine. Guess you're doing the best thing for yourself!

sills - if you eat a reasonable meal the previous evening you won't need anything before running. I have done up to about 12 miles on nothing. I have my stuff ready the night before and when the alarm goes off I just get up and go and take some water with me.

welcome to everyone new

Thanks for the warm welcome birkmyre.
Spit Fire - serious admiration for your effort, hadn't thought about the prospect of having the whole word to myself!
Looks like I'm going to have to just try it and see. Mathschick i'll start with your approach but as the spring marathon approaches I fear that I'll be joining you eastendrunner

Morning all - and especially to the new folk in this weather! 6 miles NW 1 fox, 2 cats, 2 dogs  x 2, both in shorts, ouch 1 Hovis van. Trying to follow the Marathon Talk advent calendar running on Facebook so 3 x 5 min efforts perked me up a bit. Got out yesterday before the snow but IT failure and a busy day meant I couldn't share my snow stories, then the trains all went to pot. Anyway, I'm rambling, have a good day all and look after those chops MK.
