Minni v Dubai Dave
Evening running fanatics! Looks like I've missed out on a good bit of banter over the weekend....
Non-running stuffDaren I knew you would beat us last night, we've been utterly useless since about this time last year. They are clearly missing the 'Don't' part out and are just trying to 'Be Shit'. Great news for you and your band
Chick - love the Dirty Dancing finale to your work Christmas do. That's the spirit!
Busy week this week, going to see Mumford and Sons tomorrow night, the Black Keys on Friday and Madness on Saturday.
I thought men didn't know what cellulite was?
A colleague at work was off sick for two days last week after contracting blood poisoning following a paper cut. I thought my boss was just winding me up!
Running stuffO4S well done getting the miles in yesterday, talk about dedication!
Congrats on the bling Gazelle, that's topped off a brilliant running year for you
Ran in the snow first this morning with Parsnip, had lots of fun and was running loops of the market place just to make patterns and be silly.
Sarah I've not done Newcastle or Gateshead parkrun so sorry can't comment. If you're up for a longer journey down the A1 Durham is a good one, flat course, first half mainly on grass, second half on footpaths. Lovely course and a decent cafe for post-run bacon sandwich, cup of tea and free showers if you want one.
Nice few running days for you Freemers, brilliant YKW time (got to love going sub-21!), great run today too. When does you training for London start?
Hope you're OK after your fall Minni, it's very very icy out there No damage to legs / hands / clothes / garmin / pride I hope? And doubles already?!
Freemers - Great run.
First run this morning after weeks rest, just over 3 at 7:39 avg(must run slower) just felt good to be back on it. I've registered for Jantastic and maybe it's early days but the teams are n't making a lot of sense.
Had a stonking club run last night and smashed my record for the 4.5K lap of the park by 27 seconds ( 17:13), not sure where that one came from but I'm not complaining.
2K swim set at lunch, 30 mins trot tonight as having a cut back week.
You're getting mega quick DD. Is that the endurance base of 2 x Ironman you're working off do you think?
DD - you stonk!! You're having a great season so far.
Barry - Slow down!
Thanks for that Simon. I'll give it a look.
Carrot - busy weekend. Madness will be great!
carrot: paper cuts are nasty - number 1 work injury I'd say! But to get blood poisoning from it - blimey

You're a classy bird Chick!
well, I lived in Essex for 12 years ... go figure!
I fell on the ice but still got the six in @ 8:17.

oh no, Minni! No lasting damage I hope?DD: you are getting too fast for us... times like those should be banned Managed 11 miles this morning. Had to. Wimped out last night. So cold and nasty. This morning it was +3 degrees and no more ice. But very windy again. Apparently it will be snowing later
Barry- 7:39? Was that what you call a recovery run? I'm just jealous by the way!
DD- very speedy indeed
KFC- sounds like an epic weekend!
6m for me this morning at stupid a clock (brrr it was cold out there) @ 8:20. I'm still soldgiering with shorts though...
Barry - I think on Jantastic you can only see people in the team when they have submitted their target number of runs for January - so looks like only me and weeble have done that so far. I'm going for 5 in January, then probably 6 in February and March. Nice running yesterday
DD - "gulp" - I don't think I could do 1km at that pace
I arrived at work this morning to find there has been a gas leak nearby and all the buildings are without hot water and central heating. It's getting a bit chilly in the office! More importantly I expect it will mean no showers at the gym (which is next door) do I'll have to ditch my lunchtime run...I don't mind not showering (my colleague might!) but I do mind the bad post-run hair . It's a good job I'm not on a schedule at the moment or I might freak.
Spoons: I would imagine that the huge aerobic base I have built over the past two years its a very large part of my new lease of life. Tri training has enabled me to handle a volume of training that would have lead to me getting injured if I only ran. Add in the past 16 weeks of solid speedwork and suddenly I'm running times that should not be possible. Best bit is beating clubmates who have had it far to easy for far too long, competitive me?
Chick: Forgot to give a huge hurrah for your Dirty Dancing performance, whatever happened to Jennifer Grey?
DD - you are really flying
Barry - very quick. Still got speed even after the marathon.
Minni - did you properly go arse over tit?
Freemers - hope the heating sorts itself soon.
Trendy 5 on the icy lanes this morning. My friend rang me yesterday and told me a woman had been serioulsy assaulted where I normally run. For the first time in ages I was a bit nervous today
AA - Very worrying, you take care out there.
DD - Impressive running, you have been hitting some quick paces recently. What's the target for the mara?
Freemers - Thanks, I'll have a think about targets and put them on Jantastic.
DD - blistering pace. Nice
AA - bloody hell, what a nightmare. At least you should be able to show them a clean pair of heels.
Jantastic - that's come around again has it. I will have to investigate. TBH I haven't listened to MT for months now.
It's my 5x1000 repeats tonite. I'm going to do them off 2min recoveries and aim for sub 4mins for each of them. I'm not sure what effect my 2x10 mile cycle commute will have on them...
Thanks Merry Carrotmass, I love Durham so it might be a perfect excuse to travel south on saturday morning to sample the bacon sandwich and any christmas markets.....and not forgetting the park run!
I work in the medical profession and I didnt even realise that it was possible to get blood poisioning from a paper cut.....I guess I better start taking somethings more seriously from now on!
Hope your ok minni, i slipt on black ice on sunday, all i could think of was not causing any injuries to hault my marathon training before its even begun. I was a nightmare to live with last year for 4 months....think I might be even worse this time round.
What marathons are everyone entering next year?
AA- oh, that's not good. Do you tend to run in the evening/ morning? I always work under the assumption that surely all the psychos are asleep at 5.30am so it's much safer... Not sure if there's any truth in it...
Ant- good luck with the intervals. I am trying to decide if I'm looking forward to doing them again or not
Sarah- it's VLM and Berlin for me next year.
Ive heard loads of good reports on Berlin, its supposed to be a fabulous run. I did the big 25k there this year and that was amazing, running through brandenburg gates was fabulous.
AA - scary indeed. I used to be really nervous about running on the roads myself - never worried about being out on the hills though. Over the past couple of years I've got much braver and now even go on the lanes myself at night. I am aware that at the moment I am running the same routes, at the same time, every evening but I don't have much choice.
No injuries after my fall, which ended up as a groovy hip slide!

. Mini you don't have any excuses, Morag gone soft on you?
Thanks DD I think he must have read that because I've now got a killer of a killer sesh to do tonight.
Sarah - VLM and Newcastle for me. What about you?
