PSC - it is his trumpet teacher from school that has put us in this predicament. Grrrr

however, got the piano music, rang an old lady that a friend of mine told me about and went to see her today, she is lovely, spent 45 mins with son going through the pieces, scales etc with him

Emmy oh no, I thought the H had gone missing. Oh well, you have (wo)man's best friend to fall back on, maybe you and Gobi can have a SOC house share?

At least nobody would mind when you go training in the morning :??)

Good Evening L&G

Stay strong Gobi and Emmy. I'm sorry I'm not wise enough to give words of wisdom. Emmy you held it together over the weekend. Well done on a great double.

Martello Marathon on Saturday was very tough but not the hardest. Maybe the lengthy walks in the headwind prevented true attrition. Heartbreaker on Sunday then the first 'proper' trail marathon of the year and one of my favourites, Steyning Stinger.

In Bath for a few days, bored the kids with the Roman Baths and Cheddar Gorge. Longleat tomorrow should hopefuly perk them up.

Many happies to Miss B..

Morning gang.

Maths, glad you've got a solution.

The stinger is popular in this house too, but we didn't enter! Ho hum. Maybe next year.

Morning all - T25 x 2, 5.5 mile run with 2.5 tempo, 4 cats, 1 OR and a diversion trying to seek out a decent restaurant for tonight. Emmy, I'm not in the mountains unfortunately, but there are a few hills here for sure. 5.30, see you on Sunday, last time I did the Heartbreaker I didn't find the start, ran up the road after a marshal thinking he was a runner, had to run back through the field to start on my own, so hoping for a better time this year. Mr F is bravely doing the half. I loved Cheddar Gorge when I was younger but I suppose iPads hadn't been invented then!  Valis, having a mirror in my hotel room confirms I look nothing like the people in the T25 video when I'm prancing around, substance not style though eh? Happy hump day.

Hey kids

Did 12 miles today, longest run since 2012. I was checking out a new route from these new digs. Strange being around people as I saw a few runners and dog walkers although I soon disappeared into areas where people obviously don't run.

The only problem today was too much thinking time. :??(

morning all

happy birthday to Miss B - what pressies did she get?

went to running club last night and did a speedy (for me) 4 miles, There is something about running with others that pushes me a bit harder.

The a rubbish night's sleep worrying about work and stuff - shouldn't happen in the middle of half term. My kids don't let me lie in though and we are out on the bikes today - as far as a cafe about 4 miles away and there might be some moaning about tired legs from them.....

gobi - running alone certainly provides a lot of thinking time - I quite like that as it does help me get my mind straight and make decisions, but I guess you would rather have some distractions

right now I need less thinking time

Morning all

Happy 14th Miss B

530 - hope you all enjoy Longleat and the weather holds off for you

Kate - made me laugh re T25 video and the picture of reality in the hotel room mirror!!

Gobi - maybe music or an audio book is the answer for now, whilst you are exploring your new surroundings

4 miles and 2 dog walks today

19/02/2014 at 11:02
Jo - I had music :-0

Emmy - what are we going to Belgium for ?
19/02/2014 at 11:09


Happy Birthday Miss B

Run done early this morning as the gas company are replacing the mains pipe and switching off our supply so had to get back to shower and breakfast before they arrived. Busy up on the common today with military exercises and film crew activity. NW 1 other runner, 1 dog walker, 3 horses.

19/02/2014 at 12:30

Gobi, you're far too fast to think, imagine if you were me and your 12 mile runs took nearly 2 hours. Happy birthday Miss B.

19/02/2014 at 15:37

Kate, Gobi - 12 miles would take me the better part of 2:30/3:00 - that's loads of thinking time 

birky - enjoy the cake. Are you going to dancing on Ice with her? My idea of hell....

Come on over and live here... Although the Netherlands are also looking like a possibility!

Good evening all

4 miles run to work this morning so I could ride my new road bike home. Then T-25

Birky Happy Birthday to Miss b enjoy the cake.

Kate.substance indeed, I can just Imagine I have style that should suffice as it has for many a year.

Jo, How are you finding T-25

Emmy,  Is that for work or lifestyle

19/02/2014 at 21:21

Valis, I have far too much substance at present, T25 is no match for the amount of potato served at every meal here. They also still smoke indoors which is pretty grim. Otherwise they are bloody friendly and like to wander round in traditional costume serving strong beer so all is not lost.
