I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.

Chicken are great and make lovely pets. They are full of character and very tame. I've got 3 and I love them to bits, I could watch them for hours. I can pick them up for a cuddle and one of them always jumps onto my knee if I sit down in the garden, and they follow me around. I know they are only after treats but its still lovely.

It's the Thames 100 by centurion events. Yep all in one go. Did it last year too and was equally uprepared! At a bit of a loose end tonight. Nothing to do, nowhere to go so I'm making a start on the book!

My ex insisted on cats, of which we had four. Maybe now is the time to go down the chicken line. I agree they make great pets, make pretty good fajitas too!!!

 I'm worrying about getting up to 10 miles by mid March!!!!!
We need a pom pom waving training schedule if we're gonna be cheerleading for that long!!

I want a chicken (well actually I want to ask to buy Chicken from the owners who have lots) but I think creepy neighbour might hurt it when drunk and we share a garden so I can't.

Have you got an event booked in solv? Training this year is always so hard. The dark cold nights don't inspire me, give me a hot sunny and sweaty day anytime.

Two; Salisbury 10 in March and Giants Head marathon at the end of June - there's a question mark over whether my probs running are really asthma being bad or if it's a leaky valve in my heart causing probs but neither means I shouldn't train just slows progress

Not heard o the giants head before. I do like to have an event on the horizon fo try ans keep some focus. So has anyone got anything planned for tonight? It's probably going to be a fairly early on here with some horlicks. That's rock n roll!

Didn't get to run. Moo was ebeing difficult and Mr by eck is not having a good day. It's not the best combination for me to be out of the house for over an hour. So I will need to run tomorrow

Well maybe you can get out in daylight tomorrow to make it a nicer run. Hugs to Mr by eck and Moo.

I'm hoping so.
So have people got races booked?

* frowns at Mr F for daring to make lovely chickens into fajitas*

Well I did try to get into town.  Stood waiting for a bus for 20 minutes, gave up.  It then passed by 5 minutes later.  By then I didn't really want to go anymore so at least I had an excuse to send apologies.  Will probably help my prospects for getting out for a run tomorrow.

I'll be doing Lincoln 10k in April with a possible option on Gainsborough 10k in March as I would like to get one in before then.  Seems a long time since my last one which was a bad one mentally.  I've been needing to get a good one in ever since then.  Apart from that will see how it goes.  Getting beyond 10k feels like an enormous challenge to me.

I booked loads or races last year and only made the start line to 2 in September and October. I entered loads again for this year with the intention of making the start and finish this time, even if I'm last. Do we need a race list for turbo charging pompoms?

By diary looks like this far:

Longest Day bike sportive 90k

Pirate DIY half ironman (a training session rather than a race but still want to finish)
Bupa London 10k

Enduroman Half Ironman (New Forest) and supporting mad people doing the double IM

Hampton Court 3k swim (not entered yet but keen to do it)

Bearbrook 10k
Cotswold Classic half ironman

Challenge Henly Iron distance (gulp)
Ealing half marathon (plodding, walking, limping depending on above!)

Most of them have a social aspect included too but I think I'm going to be busy. Better get that bike out tomorrow I think.
