Minni v Dubai Dave
Won't you be driving from Fakenham at least though Spoons? Or have you delegated that to your OH?
Plenty of time to sober up between Peterborough and Fakenham . I'll be driving too - OH was going to come but has changed his mind, probably wisely! So I will have to be sensible too.
Current weather forecast is sunny, 11 degrees, light winds. I do wish they wouldn't keep changing it - it's not helping with my hair planning. I mean if I shave it off and then it is sunny I'm going to get burnt
spoons - don't you dare let yourself get beaten by me again...you know you'll never hear the end of it. Did I ever mention the Norwich Half...?
My money's on Freemers
Daren I bet you drive a sporty convertible, you rock star that you are!
DD I love that road. When I come out for my winter holiday (when I'm invited) I will run that road.
MT - I've got a bit bored with it too but do like the interviews and the training talk if it's interesting. And the podium if anyone I know is one it. I also like Tony's trails.
Bro - Can't wait to see what you do in the marathon this time. You must be so pleased with the way its all going. Remember its all down to your hard work and nothing else. Don't let your coach take any credit!
Freemers - Norwich? My memory's bad - remind me?
AA - I'm already worried about our lunch date of the Saturday of the TM. Must remember to only order a glass and not a bottle!
2old you've been 2quiet (did that work?) this past few days. Come on, hit us with taper madness! And no, Freemers would never let Spoons cross the line with her - she's have to be first!
I'm on my third glass of wine. I have a pain that might hamper my efforts on Sunday but I'll update later - must go and feed the family.
2old - are you on drugs? Its never just a run. We train for it , we do it, its important. I'm on white - too early for red. You'll recognise FRC from his buffs - he'll be giving you one bottle and tipping another over his head!
So, on Wednesday night I had a stitch when running. And I had the same last night. On the LHS otherwise I would have immediately assumed it was appendicitis. I wonder if its too much fruit and nuts? So, today I have detoxed with fried egg rolls, caramel cupcakes and wine. To be honest the area is still a little painful but no more that it was this morning. I'm not looking at my schedule in case I was supposed to run tonight. I'll do something in the morning.
Mmm, I love scallops but fillet is my all time favourite - nice and rare I hope? I'll pass on the ice-cream though - it starts my asthma!
Not googled the stitch - gotta be linked to the diet.
Good news here, got the results of my ops back - one basal cell cancer, one squamous cell cancer and one Bowens disease [pre-cancerous condition]. All clear after surgery and the consultant sent me a couple of surreal pictures of myself on hospital trolley in gown carrying Olympic torch
AA: I'll help you lead Minni astray for the sake of the team. Might catch you at the airport as well.
Minni: sometimes it is just a run, at least for those of us who don't train properly
FRC: you can be my toy boy, provided Mr Z doesn't turn up in his school uniform.
Barry: In the unlikley event you spot me - Shirley
Great news O4S!
AA/O4S I'm not sure if I'm going to get he train down or drive yet. If I drive I'll pick you up from the airport, but I think I'll end up on the train because it saves parking all weekend. There's the metro that runs straight from the airport to the city centre and the restaurant I have in mind for lunch is mins walk for the station. What time is everyone else arriving?
O4S - great news. Show us the pic of you on the trolley with the torch....
AA - water? Is that a mixer?
Steak and beer for me tonight. Oops pissed again
Minni - how did you get on at tri club tonight?
Phew, just finished catching up. Landed back on Weds but was zonked through jet lag and then work has been mental since so apologies for the silence. Race report to follow, but catching up with everyone elses news.
O4S - yeay for the good news.
Chick, Gazelle, great marathons well done both of you. Chick, I'm amazed you're running again already I'm still finding stairs sore although the knees seem better now.
Bro, fantastic half marathon PB. It's looking good for you for NY.
DD, nice bling.
Also well done to the ultra runners.
ST, that sounds v scary. Recovery seems to be going well, hope that continues.
*Waves to USB*. Good to see you pop in. How's everything going for you?
I'm sure that there's lots more I've missed in a week's worth of posts so apologies to anything I've missed.
