Not outfits for the cold if you get what I mean!!

Racing tomorrow so early one for me tonight, xc in the MET league. So will have to duck out before the watershed!

Will check in tomorrow at some point, busy weekend ahead. Have friends coming for dinner in the evening too both nights!

Ady - I hope Sam Murphy isn't reading this and taking notes!

Yeah fingers crossed on the forum 6. I agree it'll be great to see what we all end up doing if myself or Sarah gets lucky. Do let us know what they say about the asics schedule planner tool as everyone is a bit perplexed.

Jen - I hope you weren't too shocked by the visuals here.

Haaa haaaa I've just changed my profile name to CarroT

14/12/2012 at 22:22

brilliant Caro... now you need the profile pic to match

14/12/2012 at 22:23 that would be one image you'd never get out of your head. Maybe that could be my motivator., "Hit your targets or you're running your next race in that mankini." That should work better than any speed training.

I believe what's going to happen is that each MyAsics training plan will be adapted and tweaked depending on your PBs, most recent race times, and how many days per week your'e able to run. I'll happily share this though, so everyone knows exactly what my training is going to be, and if I'm hitting my targets that I'm set.

Hee hee! The chap behind the one in green doesn't look TOO unhappy about being behind him., if you know what I mean ...

Apparently Asics do those things in luminous pink too! 

14/12/2012 at 22:45

Might be a little too revealing for the type of photoshoot they have in mind though!

Good point

I'd love to come up to London and be there to see ALL you guys RRR. I'm sure we're allowed. And like Malcs said if we press our orphan faces hard enough against the window and steam it up they might just feel sorry for us and give us a key ring.

We were planning a car ferry day trip to France and then driving over to Brussels to go see the Christmas markets with friends but our one friend is really poorly and this week has been so exhausting we're going to give it a skip and I'm going to catch up on my other life which I think still exists out there.

CarroT - it would be GREAT to see you! Why don't you pop Katie RW an email to see whether she can work something out? If not we can always catch up afterwards if you fancy it?

It's definitely been an exhausting week ... but a a LOT of fun! You mean ... there's a life outside running? (Thought that was a myth...)


14/12/2012 at 23:35

 RRR. Soak up every second of Sunday for us and paste lots of pics afterwards!! You MUST find something shocking pink in the shop & take a photo of it just for us xox

14/12/2012 at 23:53
Maybe if we all crashed the photo shoot in a mankini and loitered around in the background they'd give in and let us on the team? I can't see how that could possibly go wrong
15/12/2012 at 00:07

CarroT - You make it sound as though I have a positive obsession with shocking pink items ... um...

Indy - To be honest if you lot all turned up in mankinis I'D be taking photos too!! ;D


15/12/2012 at 00:11
I could wear my medium Asics T-Shirt from Bootcamp, that's pretty much as tight as a mankini!
15/12/2012 at 09:27

Couldn't cope with them mankini talk. It took a particular down turn when it was suggested that they could be in fluorescent pink!!!

15/12/2012 at 10:16

For a minute there I didn't recognise you - DS2 goes festive!

Indy - ha . Hey, if it's no use to you I'll send you an SAE if you don't want it

CarroT! Hurrah!

Sadly I won't be able to join you at the shop window - I'd completely forgotton, it'll be party time here! You are all still invited btw. As long as you don't turn up in your new kit

Kit envy BIG TIME!!

15/12/2012 at 13:53

Santa's little tigger Like the new name! 

You know I was on the Paris thread for a week before I realised everyone had names on a suspiciously common theme - what a numpty!

Yes, major kit envy here (major everything envy) but as DS2 said earlier, completely no jealousy. Though I would like an Asics mankini for use in the privacy of my own home .

I spent this afternoon re-filling the empty drawer I'd cleared in my wardrobe...such a sad, sad story...sigh . On the plus side the weather has swung completely here so I haven't had to wait for spring to get use out of my free T-shirt from bootcamp. Have to say, it's very nice. Lovely 5.5 miles in it this morning. Smells really great now.

CarroT the sad thing now is that having just managed to get the carrot reference you'll now have to change it to something festive. I must admit I'm struggling a bit with mine. 

If I don't catch you, have a fantastic time on Sunday folks, I really mean that and please do let us know all about it. If Olly Murs is there say hi from me and sorry from Reg.

Sharp as a brick there Malcs! Been trying to think of a seasonal name for you but can't fit Malcs into anything!

 I think we should make a pact that if any of our chosen five get stick off other forumites we should jump to their defence. I hope they don't but I think it is inevitable that there will be some jealousy and, from what I've been told, this has manifested itself into some criticism in the past.

Have fun tomorrow. Of course I'm jealous!!
