Some great pictures and some worrying pictures too.

AA - Come and join the fun. I wasn't confident with the swim or ride but a couple of months in the pool and I'm sure I'll be able to do it now. Get your cleats on and have a go, if you fall off because of them it will only be when your stationary it doesn't hurt that much.

I-pods are the same as most things if use at the right time in the right way then not a problem, its not the device is users and there choices that matter.

Moragh- it most certainly beats the mental image I had.

Reminds me of when my friends were all sure DD was a fat lorry driver who pulled into Watford Gap to dish out instructions.....

Hi guys! Bogged down at work . Just skimmed over the the last 3 pages. My, but you lot are busy!!

Where do these new emoticons come from?? They are great!!

Right, boss is calling me again ...

Managed 11.2 miles this morning. Had to turn back after a mile or so to put my Yaktrax on. Yesterday's snow melted, then froze and more snow came down overnight. Very slippery. OK with the Yaktrax though. Love 'em!

Jeez. How many posts and new people, welcome to 3-4.

Simon hope the hip is better. a few days in sauna, jacuzzi, rest. Becsa, same with the head.. and Mr Zuvai too.

2old, upload photos to google picasa is easiest then direct link it. See below.
Minni & Sarah, Facebook takes a lower res version of your photos so same idea, copy the links from there.

kfc, your plan is similar to what I did Jan-May, 3 runs, my Xtrain is usually 2 circuits or one plus a strength/ speed weights session much less impact. More than 1x 20 milers surely? Aiming for 5-7 this year.

O4S, super time considering you're meant to be ill. nutter! BA funny, bedroom in freezing temperatures?

PaulSamcymru - Wrexham is only 30 minutes away, we ran in Moel Famau last week, do you run in the Borders league - Christleton one this Sunday?

Scuba, Glad the op went well. We will have teams for Thunder Run not if! Brol maybe jogging with Mr Brol though allegedly...

Fit Running Cat is very happy this week, couldn't ever replace our eldest cat of 17 years we lost in April , but we have adopted a new one so back to 3 in the house again. Black & white little boy, huge paws, a bit of tuxedo front and batman sort of face, lovely and very friendly... just we were stuck on a name, now chosen.

Say hello to Stanley!  and here.

Oh, I saw this and thought of some people on this thread for some reason...]Man%20Flutablets

Can you lot stop posting so much please? I can't keep up

12/12/2012 at 17:54
Chick your weather sounds worse than ours. Well done for getting out.
12/12/2012 at 18:02
Lovely photos Mr Z

Moraghan - that's put me right off my dinner I'm not sure about being coached by OH...mine is a strength and conditioning coach and has tried to do proper s&c programmes for me before, but I just get annoyed when I can't do it and get no sympathy from him! I just thank goodness he doesn't do actual running coaching or I might have to find another sport or another OH

FRC - Stanley is v.cute. Our puppy would have fun with him

10k on the treadmill today, with 4 miles @ MP - approx 10 seconds (I say approx as I've not quite settled on my MP yet, but these were between 7.15 and 7.30 each).

FRC, i love it....I wonder if I can prescribe this!

Minni your much braver than me, although once im warmed up im usually ok, its just the standing at the start line that I struggle with!

12/12/2012 at 18:15

No running for me today....just about to start my third clinic of the day. Hopefully finish by 9 though so aiming to do a few lengths in the pool on my way home.

12/12/2012 at 18:32

Sarah - any news yet??

Freemers -   My MP miles are just at my current MP, not what I hope it to be in April.

Mr Minni told me last night that he as thinking of getting me a strength and conditioning programme for my Christmas.   A 6 week course - 6 hours per week.  He'd seen it on the shopping channel!  I asked when exactly I'd get time to do this and he reckoned I could just fit it in.    When I then said I was going to go on turbo for an hour his face dropped and immediately started complaining that I'm always doing something.  I rest my case!

Hi Fit Running Cat, nice to meet you, love Moel Famau, train up there and race up there, a great race at the Cilcain Show in August. I do the Border Leagues not unfortunately not this weekend I'm working nights, did the Helena Tipping a few weeks ago and got the Chester Round the Walls on Boxing Day

Treble today became a pseudo quadruple as number 3 was split by a session in the GP sugery having four more lumps burned off with liquid nitrogen [or should that be frozen off??]  Anyway it has left me with two very sore hands to go with my two very tired legs so  day off tomorrow methinks

Loving the Man-Flu tablets - showed BA and he thought it was hilarious until I pointed out that I was showing him because he is a prime candidate for the tablets

We are off to Devon after work tomorrow for 5 nights in a first floor apartment overlooking the sea - so hoping for some good winds and high seas - as well as four days walking on Exmoor and the coastal path.  Typical that the weather is going to change to warm, wet and windy - give me cold and sunny any day.

Minni:  Do you think Mr Minni is dropping a hint or can he just not think of a present??  BA and I agreed to stop buying each other presents a number of years ago after he caught me taking the Size 20 jumper he had bought me to the charity shop [he says size 10 and 20 don't sound that different.....

12/12/2012 at 20:08

Sarah..........highly amusing........I can think of a good number of people I could give a high dosage of these to in my office.

O4S/ Barry.....Thanks very much for your opinions regarding splitting up daily runs into smaller amounts. I'd only do it if struggling for timing to get a full run in. 

Apologies for yet another question many rest days do people have? I normally take 1-2 rest days per week (depending on how long my long run at the weekend is). I thought this was pretty standard until I saw MyAsics plan that shows plans for only 2, 3 or 4 days. 

12/12/2012 at 20:37
Sarah, definitely need to prescribe my man flu tablets.

O4S Funny that BA didn't get why you were showing him them. I was thinking of him. I liked the HTFU phrase. Made me laugh.

Minni 6 hours S&C is silly. An hour per week is easily enough if you're cross training.

Shady, I do 2 rest days and run 3 times a week, occassionally 4. Just returned from S&C class plus a circuit on Friday or Saturday. Race and a long run after on Sunday.. Sure many on here will be doing 4,5 or 6 days so ignore asics.

Anyone racing at weekend ? Someone posted about some being cancelled.

Shady - I have one day rest and run 6 days, sometimes twice a day. Occasionally if in recovery or taper I'll have 2 days rest.

O4S - I've told him exactly what I want for Christmas - a pair of wireless headphones that I can plug into the telly and wear on the treadmill so I don't wake the whole house up in the mornings. Also the diamond earrings that go on every list a write.

Killer sesh done. It's completely iced up again here so I was limited to where I could run. Hated it but at least that's another one out the way.

No run today. Chinese food kept coming over four hours. I'm as fat and bloated as Moras picture. Lots to run off over the next few days
FRC- nice kitten. Have you gone soft? What races in the area have you got planned for Jan and Feb. ?
12/12/2012 at 21:49

1 or 2 rest days is about right
