Out for a quick 3 miles and back before the rain started. NW 1 flock of geese flying over, 2 dog walkers, 1 ninja runner 

Planning to go to Frensham for a quick dip tomorrow. Kate - fancy coming along with Mr F? 5pm at the car park/cafe? How's the Alcatraz training going? I see that Guildford Lido are now allowing swimmers to attend the cold water sessions without wetsuits providing they sign a disclaimer! Tempted!!

Good Morning L&G

Emmy, you know how dumb I am.

Martello Marathon tomorrow on Kent coast. No double as I'd planned a half term trip to Bath for a few days last October.

Tomorrow could be the benchmark for the most difficult marathon. Sustained wind speeds of 40mph and gusts up to double that!

Day off today so I had a lie in and then went for a run. Amazing how much easier things are if you don't have to get to work 

1 more run and then week 1 of my 5km training plan is complete. I'll have a 5km PB this spring even if it kills me

well done Amy

5:30 - good luck for tomorrow

Evening - swim lesson for me tonight, after dental surgery this morning it has not been the most romantic of Valentine's days, now the anaesthetic has worn off I'm having red wine medicine. Blowing a gale out there, tomorrow's marathon is going to be pretty fruity 5.30 and Emmy, best of luck and enjoy the goodie bag. Chris, thanks for the offer but I have about a million excuses not to, mainly that I am not insane.

Kate - hope your mouth is ok. 

Chris - you must be mad going OW swimming in this weather, though at least it hasn't actually been particularly cold so the water won't be toooo cold

had a really long sleep so no spinning this morning just swimming, but I will turbo later to make up for it

5:30 and Emmy - good luck with the marathon

Good morning all

10 miles this morning not including Park run as it was cancelled due to the high winds bringing a couple of trees down. plus plenty of bough's. Managed to get seven miles in before the park rangers came across me and asked me to leave as they had closed the park. Thankfully the ranger was one who I often say hello to , so he allowed me to continue to the exit of my choosing which was couple of miles further than the closest one.

5.30 and Emmy  Good luck hope you don't get blown off your feet.

Power cuts so gym closed, T25, turbo and 6 mile run. Fallen trees, 300 different types of weather, but no power. Checking on my flight status is going to be hard later if wireless doesn't come back, off to Austria with work until Friday. Batten down the hatches folks.

Morning gang. Am I mistaken or is that blue sky? Long today for me.
16/02/2014 at 07:58

Morning - SOC airport start for me, a long NOC run round the Austrian countryside planned later. Enjoy the blue skies out there.

16/02/2014 at 08:55


Kate - have a great time in Austria

somehow stayed in bed, so breakfast first then a long run

beautiful day here, and the trees aren't moving so no wind either

Good morning all

20 miles this morning frosty start but warmed up once the sun made an appearance

Nw whole field full of deer i guess one of the local farmers has just gone in to the venison market.1 Horse and rider who I opened a gate for. 1

Kate ,Have a good time watch out for singing nuns.

Psc and maths enjoy your long runs

Birky , we just didn't turn up

13 miles run/walk done. I didn't really feel like it - I think my legs were maybe a bit tired after a 2 hour turbo yesterday, but enjoyed it when I was out there

loads of OR, Cyclists, dog walkers, litter pickers....most nature was scared off as there is a shooting range along the off-road trail and there was plenty of shooting going all - I always find it a bit nerve wrecking going past it....

6 mile run this morning and OW swim this afternoon so made the most of the sunshine and blue skies.

17.5 miles knocked out at a good training pace, fabulous running conditions.  Loads of horses, dog walkers, ramblers and idiot townies rushing around the countryside trying not to get their cars muddy!  Damn fools. 

16/02/2014 at 20:19

14 miles on the drizzly streets of Waidhofen, no singing nuns but I did run past a bar with an oompah band playing. Good running today folks.
