No snow but rained a lot

Bitterly cold wind with hailstones and sleet at times. No finds today - well not for me any way.

4 solid hours of walking a wet muddy field - does that count as exercise?

Definitely does in my book Speedy!

Thank you RE. My legs tell me that have done something today.

Sneaks head around the door - okay to come in?  

How is everyone doing?

I'm back out running - occasionally!  Did 3.2 miles this evening, now the ice has melted.  Some of the paths were flooded leading to some unexpected hill runs!  

Have decided to go out with a running club tomorrow.  Todays run pace was about 11.5 min/miles - a bit quicker than my norm of 12 min/miles.  Will I be totally out of place?  They assure me it's a run for all levels..........

Hi Ally. Nice to see you on here again and well done on the run. That's faster than I could go. Good for you.

You will be fine going out with a club. Usually they have different groups or do traIning that everyone can do regardless of pace. My old club from many years ago had really fab training nights and that was when I ran my fastest marathon. Enjoy it and let us know how you get on.

Evening Ali.
I agree with Speedy, they will look after you

Hello Ally darling. When are you going to have a coffee down here with me?!
Well done on your weight loss and fitness regime. You have been totally amazing.

Well folks, here we go on another week...
I believe wellies and sou'westers are the clothing of choice this week.

Better make sure RE is water proofed, otherwise he will not be able to take off.

Next time I am down I will let you know hun.

My mum died a few months ago so I have to confess haven't been down as much recently.

Still concerned about this here running club thing tonight - that whole 'I'm not a runner' thing haha.

Ali I use to look after "i'm not runners" and still do so I know that your Running Club will be very considerate

Thanks Tiptoes.  Is 12 minutes /mile too slow?  I know I shouldn't be worried.  I can run 3 miles without stopping.  But it's something new.  Even when I used to 'run' back in the day I would never have considered a running club.  Although, in all fairness, it took me 14min/mile then.


28/01/2013 at 19:00
Ali nope as they will look after you.
PS I do not use the swear word
28/01/2013 at 21:09

Did you do it then Ally? (the running club thing I mean)

Speedy told me about your mum - I sent you an email but chances are you have a different address now to the one I've got. I am sorry for your loss poppit. (((( )))) 

We are having a bit of a storm down here. Gale force wind and horizontal rain. I fear bots are falling off the lily-pad but I don't want to go outside to look!

I did Limper.

Went out with their 'step up' group which is a bridge between their beginner course and the social run. They do 2.7Miles. I am a bit of a silly sod and too proud to be far behind so tried to keep up. We did it in 30minutes. Faster than I've ever run before. Couldn't have gone any further I have to say.

They were lovely and the tail runner kept telling me it was okay to slow down etc. my pride however.......

 Ally. You are quite a star aren't you!
Now we just have to work out which of our communal 'events' you are going to come to! I have to say event because if I say race (whoops) Lord Tiptoes will slap my @rse.

On reflection... race race race RACE race race RACE RACE RAAAAAAAACE
....waits expectantly for Tippy to come out from under his duvet....

 one is not amused young lady.

Ali: glad all went well 

Now where is that iccle froggie hiding.......

29/01/2013 at 19:10

Norty Limper!

No Tuesday run for TT & RE this evening as I've been 'up the smoke'.

29/01/2013 at 19:14

hahaha Limper - me and event - erm, yeah, not yet!  I have signed up for a 10K on the 10th March.  So far furthest distance was 3.2miles - building up.


Thanks for the encouragement all.

Shall I mention that I've slept with Ally?  

You're halfway to your 10k Ally. Doing well girl, doing well.

No run for me today either Eagle. It would have had to be one direction only as there would have been no coming back into the wind.
I reckon the effort of slogging up and down the hoss fields in the floods and mud is reasonable alternative strength training

Gissa hug Tippy.
