Hey Gatton - fully understand your decision but hope that we'll still get to see you at the Expo etc? Was wondering just the other day when the Southend 10k is - will check it out later.
Daz so sorry - but I had to laugh at your post - hope all is well and that your eyes have stopped watering now.
Sorry to hear that young Eric doesn't like the jogger - maybe in time?
No probs Trigg, you weren't the only one to laugh lol, my own stupid mistake.
Just back from celebratory meal. Results are in, boy managed to get what he needed to study Aviation Engineering at Brunel. Another one leaves to find his own way in the world! He's excited, and I'm a proud daddy.
Gym tomorrow totry to sober up. hic
Great news Daz - hope you enjoyed your celebratory meal
Received e-mail to say that GNR numbers had been posted out so am waiting to receive mine - only 4 weeks to go to the big day!
Ooh only 4 weeks Trigg, hope you're training gets you what you want.
Gym was a struggle this morning, but plodded through 1h30m of classes, then pamper in sauna etc.
Weather horrible here now, better see if my mate Noah has that Ark ready, rain is coming down in almost biblical proportions
Congrats Daz for your boys..... a proud dad is a good dad..
Caro could well be on the sea front to shout you on...xx
Gatton thank you too for all your support and friendship too - now you really can concentrate on coaching us all Another one who thinks it is a sensible decision - as you say, worrying times last year and not to be repeated. Enjoy the cycling!
Trig, well done on keeping up with the running in that heat! I managed a swim yesterday and other than that have been mainly sitting praying for snow, lol! Mind you, "only" 12 weeks till mini-VB number 2 is due to put in an appearance and everyone seems convinced it's twins as I'm so huge, so that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!
Caro - hopefully Eric will get used to the buggy in time?
Daz - what are you like! Didn't hear the screams but must admit I am giggling at my desk imagining you moisturising, lol! Congratulations to your son too.
Oh and I got so carried away watching Mo Farah that the baby went bananas and while I was jumping up and down it was doing somersaults, lol! Meanwhile Lucas was also jumping up and down and clapping next to me, shouting "run, run, run man!", although I'm pretty sure he didn't have a clue what was going on!
Thanks all for congrats for son.
Just back from 2 weeks in Fuerteventura. Don't know where these extra 8 pounds on my frame have come from.
Perhaps because I only ran 3 times whilst there, and did little else training. Got to do some work now to shift it, but am already plonked in front of TV with Paralympics on. Ah well.....................
You missed the best show at the Velodrome Daz we are all moving to Brands Hatch for th eroad races... keep watching they are great
Weight loss going quite well, I've so far shifted 6 pounds. Been quite brutal though. It was a 9lb gain, so only a few more to go.
Where is everyone, still watching the Paralympics? Gripping stuff, even got it on now lol, I love it all.
Quiet on here.
So come on Trigg, how was the GNR? Didn't see you on the TV.
Hi Guys - missed my pb by 1.30 (mins!) - 2.16.16. Enjoyed the experience but it's not a race that I would do again - couldn't find any space to run in all the way round until that last piece of coastal path where the field seems to open up. Well happy - now trying to keep fitness up for Royal Parks on 7 October - must be bonkers.
Well done on the weight loss Daz - managed to get to my target weight just before I went on holiday and am still there.
Have seen beautiful photos of Eric on FB Caro - lovely children you have there xx
Well done Trigg, close to a PB is a good effort.
Weight still a bit fluctuating, but due to diet and not too much training. Ran a 10.5 on Tues, and a fast 5 this morning. Will do Cardiff Half in about a month, but will be way outside PB condition I think.
Spent last week sorting boy stuff for Uni, dare I say the penny's dropped and I've started to realise how much I'm gonna miss him. So off to big smoke (sort of - Uxbridge lol) tomorrow to take him. Weather forecast doesn't look too good for journey.
Will try a long run on Mon in an attempt at confidence building for Cardiff Half.
Saw a lot of people this weekend packing their cars with duvets etc. and escorting their offspring off to Uni. Hope all went well for you Daz.
Managed 8.04 miles yesterday in the drizzle initially and then pouring rain. Now in taper/training for Royal Parks HM on 7 October - it'll be flatter there so hope that I can beat my pb. Am sure you'll be fine at Cardiff anyway
Yes, all went well at Uni day move etc. Hardly heard from the little bugger since.
Well done on 8 in the rain, the weather at the moment is terrible. Good luck for the PB attempt at Royal Parks next Sun. I may be attempting to climb Snowdon on that day, or if not it will be the day after, weather permitting.
My long run confidence builder didn't occur until last Thurs, did 12.2 miles and it was awful, I stopped many times, a disaster. Did a much better 9.01 miles this morning, but I have to accept that Cardiff Half will just be a plod, am nowhere near PB condition. I'm even aching now from the run and Boxercise I did
I may even run it naked (i.e. without Garmin) so that I'm not clock watching as per usual, relieve the pressure.
Hope you're all keeping well and having fun, whatever you're up to?
Hey Daz.. don't they grow up so quickly. Was my grandson's 25th birthday yesturday. Now that dooes make me feel old. Just thought I would let you know what I have been up to since the Olympics
No you dont have to dof your cap just get along to the Longleat half marathon next February and I will see you there. Suppose the Grim is not your thing is it ???
Wow Gatton, hob-knobbing with the leader of the country, that's fantastic. What a great reward for volunteering, I'm sure you enjoyed it.
Grimm not really me, who knows what is lol?
My Annus Horribulus continues. Cardiff Half a week Sunday, not trained too well but was just aiming to plod it. Was at Doctors yesterday, bad foot pain over last few days since 12miler last week, pain sometimes even when walking. He said worst case I've got a stress fracture, best case it's a soft tissue tear.
Rest, rest, rest! Although I did run 11.5 miles last night, sore this morning. Supposed to be walking up Snowdon on Sun or Mon as well.
Shit really does happen lol!
Can't keep a good one down then Daz...
