morning all

didn't want to get up earlier than the kids, as I bet they were both lying awake waiting for sounds of life so they could get up! So I'll have a rest day today and run tomorrow.

Have a great Christmas everyone

Merry Christmas all.

Wasn't going to run this morning but Rusty had to go out for his exercise and it was chucking it down so I decided that it would be easier and more economical on the clothes drying front to grab my running kit and do a quick 4  miles before present unwrapping. Not surprisingly, I was the only one out on Hankley Common - NW 1 deer, 1 crow, lots of puddles!

Evening all - Happy Christmas. 6 miles for me in the biblical conditions, amazing storm. Hope you all have a great day, I don't think I'll be in Hindhead Chris as I can't persuade my brother, he has forgotten his trainers on purpose.

I won't be there either, Kate. Going for an extended hike with Jenny and Rusty and then back home for more festivities!

decided to save my run for this afternoon - was enjoying the feeling of just lying in bed and will also need a break from the family by this afternoon!

no soc again today, but am going to the gym later and will probably swim tonight

Good morning all, well done to all of you who got out on Xmas Day.  I waited till Boxing Day for an early sneak out without waking anybody, 10 miles at general aerobic pace, about 8.20ish miling for me.  Felt rubbish when I started through definitely over  indulging Xmas Day, but felt great a couple of miles in.

Morning.still not running as still got this lurgy.

Got Seb Coe autobiorgraphy and MissB has had a Jess Ennis Christmas.  Book Framed autographed photo and T-Shirt, She got her first pair of  'proper' running shoes too.

Hope you're all good.

snuck out at 7ish for a sneaky 12 miler.   As predicted it rained at 8am.  I got wet!  God I hate it when the forecast is correct!!!  Comfy pace on a mostly hilly run (with a bit off road just to see how a muddy mile would feel in roadies - oddly enough, zero grip!  Who would have thought it...

I'm on a campaign to lose 10% or my body weight in as short a time as I can bear...  the cakes and chocolate have all gone in the bin. 

Physio later. I wonder if my hip has rotated back into the correct allignment.

Morning gang...

Morning psc.

27/12/2012 at 09:39

birky - hope you are feeling better soon

PSC - hmm, I need to lose an extra stone or two. Two would put me at my ideal racing weight, one would leave me looking good but still slightly heavy. Not prepared to be too drastic though as I know I woudn't stick to it

wondering whether a half marathon in Feb would be a good idea. I had already put in for a marathon in April - I guess if I can manage the feb half it will be an indication of whether I will manage the april marathon or whether I'll have to drop back to the half in April

Maths: Cheers

Birky, sorry xposted with you. Hope you get over that lurgy quickly.

Maths, a half in Feb would be a great idea if you have a mara in April. And maybe even a 20 in late feb/early march.

had thought about a 20 miler -there is one at Ashby in Leicestershire that is popular (might have sold out) but I need to be careful about not pushing too much with the knee I think. I'll check out the date of the Ashby one and see if there are still places.

I think the cycling i am doing should really help, I know it is not run specific but I should notice an increase in my overall fitness and lose some lard which will all help

Hi all, did a quick-ish 10k road run with my son last night so took it easy this morning and had an easy 5 mile jog around the MOD at Hankley. Lost Rusty at one point and then noticed him way off in the distance, a good half mile away, running along behind another runner! Lots of shouting and blowing of the whistle and eventually he spotted me and found his way back! Stupid dog!!!
