Minni v Dubai Dave
Howdy everybody. Congrats on the YKW PB Freemers. Looking forward to my assault on the numbers later.
Missed the rugby yesterday because I was watching Arsenal meekly capitulate to Swansea. Tough times for the Wenger Boys. Had to drown my sorrows after that so am a bit bleary this am.
Got my long run in yesterday - 10 miles. What a gorgeous day. Ran on the trails in south herts, lots of ice about but no problem offroad. Next XC race is next weekend, be interesting to see what the conditions are for that.
Just back from camping on the beach, swam in the Indian ocean just after dawn, try that in Northumberland in July let alone December! Only down side was the ,monster rave going on nearby, loud music all night stopped at 0700!
OK I'll own up you lot only ever talk about runnings its bloody boring
Ran 21 miles yesterday at a fair old pace, I'll admit it I'm marathon fit! Nowt today too tired from a very disturbed night.
Right off to buy the Crimbo tree with DD1 & DD2, very excited. There was a time I would have said bah Humbug but DD1 & 2 love it and it becomes infective, though its not rammed down my throat as in the UK.
Right then, I'm off for my (whispers).... Run
To avoid boring anybody, in future, can we all please substitute running with YKW'ing.
right, xmas decorations are up and I changed my forum name Hi Sarah and welcome. I live in Germany, so can't help with Newcastle. But Minni would know

Mmmm Just having a browse around while I wait for it to get light and spotted this on another thread from one of our posters: The 3:30 thread is a bit snoreee sometimes, they only talk about running, mostly. You best not drop into the 3:15, or worse still the 3:00 thread then!

hm ... I thought we posted more about drinking or partying than running. Whatever ... that person seems to have a grudge to bear. I ran today , 6 miles and no knee pain. Hooray!!

Lol- so so busted! Minni- come on, tell us!
Gazelle- hope you enjoyed malibu last night- very well deserved. Sounds like you needed a change if you haven't been enjoying your running lately, so good call. It doesn't mean you can't go back to coaching at some point when you feel like it again. Go and get your mojo back!
Minni- hope the weather is cooperating today...
Weeble- nice mileage there
Right I'm officially exhausted with this recovery week. Way too much drinking. Look forward to a 3m plod later today.
I have done a bit of research and I now also know who the culprit was!
It didn't actually take much guesswork...
Hmmm I can't find it. Off to carry on with the investigation...
You don't need to put in your predictions for another few weeks but it might be worth giving them some thought and make sure we all set realistic but challenging targets. * although its not a competition.

This made me laugh. I'm going to feel you standing over me when I put my goals in, tsking at any overly ambitious, point-risking prediction.
Not that it's a competition. Oh no, it's such a fun, relaxed activity that it definitely wasn't the reason I did a 20 mile run on a treadmill last winter.
And will all Team Minni members have to swear an oath of loyalty?
I'm back from 2 hours on the trails doing that thing we don't talk about because it's boring which is a bit like walking but a little bit quicker.
Cold out there today....
So, how can i put this?? Today I moved myself from Bath to Bristol by non mechanical means.................................
16 miles slow [about two and a half hours] with a quarter mile paddle in 6 inch deep water with ice floating on top . This was not ideal for the chest infection and general lurgy I am still carrying around in a backpack, so at my suggestion BA and I took off our socks and took the insoles out of our shoes before going through. Then dried my feet on my hat [!!] and put everything back together. We were going to go through without shoes at all but were warned that there was some rather nasty stuff lurking in the muddy depths.
The expedition was slow enough that I didn't have a coughing fit, but fast enough to feel well exercised - who would have thought 'unicycling' could be so much fun
Minni you have to tell us who this eejit is - unless DD is being honest, in which case he deserves all the mud, cold and rain the UK can throw at him............
Weeble: I did 25 miles in 2 stages for Jantastic when Mr O4S had just broken his ankle just so Minni wouldn't set the dogs on me. Drove 13 miles from home, ran back to see he was OK and then 12 miles back to the car taking a shortcut. I still can't believe I did that

I would tell you guys but I don't think it's my place to let the cat out of the bag.
