my longest run since stevenage mara onnov 7th has been 10.2 miles

Work is hell

Im drained
Ive got a massive ward round tomorrow

and then i suppose Id better give myself a stiff talking to
But i know a lot of the peeps running, and while it will be nice to see em as they lap me several times----Im worried about keeping peeps waiting at the end

Hippo - you have mail.

Don't worry about keeping folks waiting. Do your best. I will be thinking of you all day Sunday. Shame you have a heavy round tomorrow. You could be doing with a rest day. Wish I was there and I would be waiting for you. But I bet you won't be last.

But its ok-its an ultra
Must go to bed soon, hoping to plod pre ward round
21/01/2005 at 23:29
Yep I am off to bed now as well. Good luck on Sunday if I don't catch you tomorrow. Off to be weighed tomorrow and then a longish plod on Sunday.

Take care.

Morning all. was meant to go out this morning but the alcohol last night put a stop to that idea. It just involved gettin up too damn early. shame as it's a lovely day here

Good luck tomorrow Hippo. Full respect for doing it. 30 miles. wow.

Hope you had good news at the weigh-in Speedy.

Hi mava62. Sorry to hear that the alcohol put paid to your run today. Did you manage out today? It put paid to mine today well and truly. Never really recovered from too much wine so today's run turned into a walk late in the afternoon. Only thing was the other half said he knew a lovely walk - turned out it was up through the woods up a huge hill. Walked for 2 hours though.

Slimming club scales say I am 6 lbs heavier than mine at home and the ones at work. Funnily enough 2 folks who go to the same club but a different class say the same. I had still lost 6lbs though. Do think now that these slimming clubs make you look heavier than you are to keep you going longer.

the numbers don't MATTER after all - the directioo of the progress and how you feel do

no plodding in Leafy Tedd cos of the lurgeeeeee
23/01/2005 at 19:34
As long as they go in a downward direction that is fine by me.

Sorry to hear you have the lurgeeeee. Hope you are better soon

Well done Speedy.

Yes, managed to get out yesterday - did a fab 12 miles in bright sunshine, and in 2 hours 5 which I was very pleased with. A 2 hour walk aint to be sniffed at - I don't deal with long walks well!

Got up at 5am today for a morning run and managed just under 4 miles. First time I've run in the snow though.

p.s. How did your ultra go Hippo?
24/01/2005 at 18:38
fine, apart from the marshalls trying to pull me off the course
mara pb-5.14.14
20 miles without walking
Finish time 6.04.48
24/01/2005 at 18:43
Well done. I know I couldn't do 30 miles or even 20 miles without walking. Why did marshalls try to pull you off?
24/01/2005 at 19:00
having originally assured me of no cutoff they then decided on a 6 hour cutoff--but tried to pull me off at 5 hours 20-with less than 3 miles to go
Guess they wanted to go home
