Hi Mel. Hope you enjoyed the shoping trip in London, I saw photos on RRR thread. Can't wait to see next month RW mag!

So what sort of mileage are they getting you doing? Are you just running 4 times a week?

17/12/2012 at 22:58

Hi Mel, lovely seeing you again yesterday - what a fun day!

Look forward to following your thread

Morning Mel, I think I'll mostly be absorbing what you learn to get in as much training in amongst a busy lifestyle - a great challenge for me

Well done with the start!

18/12/2012 at 17:29

Good luck Mel, can't wait to see your training plan

19/12/2012 at 09:19

Morning Mel! How have the first couple of days been? I've got 6 miles at 9:30 pace today so a nice trot! Maybe on the canal path or through the woods - depending on how brave I feel tonight! What have you got today?

19/12/2012 at 12:56
