Good Morning L&G

Kate, I'm just relieved you're not doing any of them. Expect I'll bump into you later in the year.

Maths, how's the knee? Did my recommendations make any difference?

To the footie boys, Pompey now 20 league games without a win - club record. Div. 4 beckons. Not sure I can justify another season ticket.

Morning all, 14 mile medium long run this morning, out of the door at 5.25am, dark start but light when I finished so used a mixture of round the town and out on the railway walk.  4 shetland ponies, many rabbits, about 10 dog walkers, one power walker, 2 paper boys and the butchers just starting to cut meat when I ran past.

Snow all now gone. Just 3M easy as legs stiff today.

Jason: Sometimes easing your way back is the best way.

JF: Good 14 miler

I had to call off my intended run this morning as I didn't get to bed untill way after midnight. My daughter was in a bit of a state as my wife had to go back to hospital yesterday and its all become to much for my daughter...lots of sobbing and worrying. Eventually talked her down and got her off to sleep, hopefully she will come to terms with the fact that her mum is ill and needs to go to hospital to get it sorted out.

Sad to hear that Tommygun2

13miler here, was going to make a joke about traffic but feel a bit sad after reading the last post. Try and have a good day all x
14/02/2013 at 10:48

We got a smile from you anyway TG. At least your daughter feels she can talk to you, make sure you find a shoulder to cry on when you need it too. SOC love to Mrs TG.

14/02/2013 at 12:11

TG stay strong and good luck.

18.1 miles over the South Downs this morning. Very muddy and slippery. But that only adds to the occasion. Nice to have a milder morning.

Got back to this Pistorius news.....well, well, well....

afternoon all

nothing for me yet today, but have been to knee consultant who is referring me for an mri, then he said depending on how bad the damage is it will either be an injection or keyhole surgery

tommy - sorry to hear Mrs T is back at hospital, kids take these things really badly and always imagine the worst - remember your daughter will only have made the connection cancer=death and won't realise that treatment for breast cancer is now very successful, but not easy to go through. hugs to you and family

14/02/2013 at 21:25

Sorry to hear that Tommy

5:30am. A good run.


14/02/2013 at 22:31

just over 4 miles this morning and arms and shoulders recovering from first swim session with Farnham Tri club - 2.4k at the garrison pool. NW a couple of crows and some small birds. Rusty's still finding banana skins to gobble up on his way round!

Tommy - sorry to hear that.

I am feeling nice and smug... I have run AND turbo'ed this morning   I even did some core exercises afterwards... 

TG, thoughts and prayers coming your way...  kids are pretty resilient once they understand what is going on... ((()))

Maths - sounds like you are making progress with the medicos...

Morning SOC Team

Morning all, TG echo the other thoughts on here, take care.

On the treadmill again for a 6 miler at recovery pace with 6x100m strides.

Actually very easy doing the strides on a treadmill, slam the speed up to where you need to be takes a couple of seconds and then I sprint for 0.1 mile, actually more than 100m but not much, then slam back down to recovery speed, and just repeat 6 times.  Because you are on flat even surface it allows you to concentrate on your running form without having to look out for traffic, parked cars, lumps and bumps, drain covers etc. that you do when you are outside.

And I finished The Wire, the whole five series with about 9 episodes in each. It's taken some time but then I guess it did if you watched it live when it was on TV, mine has just been accompanied by I am guessing about 300 miles or a 36,000 calorie equivalent, now you don't do that in couch potato style So many promises, so many lives lost or ruined and what was it all for, nothings changed.  Short summary perhaps but well worth watching.

Enjoy the weekend

15/02/2013 at 09:34

morning all

turbo for me this morning

JF50 - I loved the wire, feel inspired to watch it again now!

15/02/2013 at 10:02

MC enjoy that turbo.  Agree on The Wire, not often I get involved in a series like that but found it addictive.  However frustrating at the end, you just want to see change, but I guess there it reflects life so well, how many politicians have we heard spout on TV over how many years that it will all be better with us?  Blah blah

Runners should be in charge of the world, we could look after the mornings from this thread
