AA - I was never on the wagon so you haven't let this part of the team down at all

11/01/2013 at 22:13

2old- I'm up for the challenge as long as it gives me a pb! Were going next door to DD, Peisey les Arcs. I just hope the snow dosn't ground the airports over here.

11/01/2013 at 22:17
Gaz- fingers crossed our airports don't screw up. Have a go on the flying kilometre at les Arcs if its still there.....definitely a pb for you

I was on the wagon between 10pm last night and 6:30pm tonight. Does that count?

11/01/2013 at 23:35

another massive 5 miles banked at a blinding 9:27mm pace today !!!

Barry - It must be tough at work for you at moment. Putting 2 + 2 together, does that mean you work for Honda.

Yes let's hope the snow holds off in the Uk 'til you skiers get out to your resorts.
OMG I've just thought, Brol isn't going skiing is she, cus you've all had it if she is!

Guys, you all seemed surprised by the pic of the tapir's abilities. You mean yours doesn't do that also?

Glyn - well done! I remember Daren logging runs like that and he found it so hard but it was all worth it in the end. Stick with it.

Skiers - have a great holiday all!

Heading out for my 20 as soon as it gets light, which is going to be 6ish off road with the doggies then meeting others for 14 on road. And I'm doing it completely I fuelled. I let you know how that feels if I make it back!

Minni -  We lost about 1000 4 years ago but they were all voluntary.  Enjoy your 20.

Simon -   Yeah I work for Honda in Swindon, we only export to Europe and not worldwide so are being hit pretty hard by the downturn.  We make decent cars but I think most people nowadays are looking for a cheaper option.  Hopefully these cuts will be the last.

Gazelle -  Have a great holiday.

Parkrun for me this morning, another windy affair but quicker than last time, 20:26 so better but still work to do.

Morning All,

Barry - Sorry to hear about the redundancies. I've been in the "trade" for 25 years and have seen this a few times now... never pleasant.

Minni/Brol - Are you running VLM? If so, what schedule are you following that has you doing 20 this soon? Or is it a Frankenprogramme like Ant's?

I'm struggling with P & D's up to 55 schedule at the moment, so am slightly in awe of you guys knocking out 20' s so soon!

Really not looking forward to this afternoon's 5 mile XC race in a muddy park, somewhere near Heathrow, in the pouring rain and currently 1C!!!

Tomorrow's 15 miler could possibly be in the snow as well... somebody get me a rope! 

12/01/2013 at 11:20
Oompa- our schedule is called Frankenmoz We're both coached by Moraghan.
Right I'm off. No snow in sight. Will check in from snowy Whistler- yupeeee!

Morning all
Bro- are you still here? Have a great one
Oomp- don't be put off by what others are doing, stick to your plan, I'm struggling too.have a good mudrun. X country at school is why I didn't run again until my 40s. Running in snow is quite exile rating as long as its not too often. Positive thinking !
Glyn- it all adds up over the next few months..good running
Minni - hope you had a good LR
12/01/2013 at 11:48

Brol - Excuse my newbie ignorance, but who's Moraghan? 

I hope that Whistler has more snow that the east side of Canada, as i keep getting FB updates from Blue Mountain resort saying that it's raining over there! Enjoy your skiing... Oops, sorry, i mean sitting down most of the time! 

2old - Thanks for the good advice re my plan. I used to love XC at school as we used to run a 4 mile (i think) lap up and over the North Downs from Oxted school (bloody steep), and i suspect this was where my strange liking for hills has come from?

12/01/2013 at 12:13

Moraghan is the

Spoons- a bit harsh on Mora
Oomp- most of my X country was in streams and thick mud run in Dunlop green flash trainers with no grip.
12/01/2013 at 13:43
Lol Frankenmoz!

First 20 well and truly nailed today with an average of 8:02. Completely unfuelled and felt very good.
12/01/2013 at 14:30
Minni- excellent pace for your first 20 and unfuelled too. Looking good so early into the campaign .

OK - maybe not the  

Just the bringer of pain like most coaches. 

Minni - that's fantastic that Moz obviously knows his stuff! 

12/01/2013 at 15:27
Spoons- make your mind up about pain no gain
12/01/2013 at 15:37

Minni -  Very impressive running.

 Oompa - Don't worry about the monster miles some are putting in, my plan calls for 13  tomorrow but I am doing 16.

12/01/2013 at 17:33
Recovery run completed ,ended up just under 7 as I was attacked by a Alsatian ,fortunately it didn't bite me but it would not let me run past it's home resulting in a bit of a detour. As its a registered dog kennel there Ithink I might put in a complaint .
