hi all - freezing out there on the bike this morning. My fingers were frozen solid. Went for a run at lunchtime and was toasty-warm. Bah.

Anyway 2 runs booked in this week. Got an 18 miler this weekend, which is looking nervously at the forecast. Surely not going to have to be on the treddie?!

Simon - be careful of that PF. It it really hurts might not be best to run on it. Have you seen a specialist yet to make sure its not anything worse.

Oh brilliant Freemers! So, London will now be a warm up for this for both of us. When you're up in September we can do a 20m, or better still a duration run, on the course!

2old - I'm still drawn to the TM and I had thought that if the weathers is miserable I might still end up there!

Oh, and I'm the sister CD mentioned who fell off the TM! I did that thing where you hop off while it's still going (I think I wanted to change the playlist on my iPod or something), and I thought I had put the TM on pause so didn't think when I stepped back on - basically my legs went from under me and I crashed off the back straight into another TM behind. Massive colourful bruise on my leg and a gashed knee! It didn't help that it was about 3-4 days before VLM 2011, but thankfully it didn't hinder my running  

i had forgotten about this

Missed track session last night as I was too late home from work, so did the session myself tonight.  Warm-up, 5x300m with 100m recovery, 400m jog, 5 x 300m with 100m recovery, cd.  This month is shorter distances, then we start upping the distance and reducing the recovery.  really enjoyed it in the near dark, freezing cold, deserted park.  30 mile off-road looking interesting for Sunday......................

Chapeau Ant:  I run to work instead of cycle when the thermometer goes below zero - which is why I was too late back for the track session!!

This Northumbria marathon look great - but again it is a week after the 50 mile Round Rotherham so probably not.   2 weeks gap and it would be fine

What date is this northern marathon? Perhaps I could join the v40 team!!
16/01/2013 at 19:29
Oh yes AA, that would be so cool!

Ant- Heel still still sore, so the run on the TM was barely faster than a walk. The biking helped , as you can stretch the foot/heel during the rotations if required. I haven't seen a specialist, but maybe something for the future if no joy.

Minni - Re the cold/snow you've got at the moment. They had a story on the local news of the winter of '63. The coldest January ever, when even the sea froze over, it lasted for 2-3months. Obviously long before you were born. I was born the year before, so I don't remember it, but my parents used to always mention it whenever we had a bit of snow.

Simon - were you born in the ice ages??

That helicopter pilot that crashed in London was from our village
16/01/2013 at 20:07

Still no running for me. -11 degrees. Loads of ice and snow. I've fallen off the wagon and drunk a bottle of sparkling rose to see if that helps....

16/01/2013 at 20:09
Spoons - you and me both. I've made it to day 4 again and started on the red!
16/01/2013 at 20:16
Oh dear and I'm on the white...
16/01/2013 at 21:04
Nothing since Saturday for me but tomorrow ... Oh no !
Spoons- that's almost as cold as DD

AA - Yes I was 'Sid' in Ice age 3.
Sad news re helicopter pilot.
16/01/2013 at 21:28

Simon - we had it bad in 2001.  -17 here for more than a week.  We were without electric for 4 days.

16/01/2013 at 21:31

No electric for 4 days?

I once went without WIFI for 2 days and I thought that was bad enough!

16/01/2013 at 21:39

It was in the days before forums so I coped!

 Not taken by me but these are our hills today.

Some of us were teenagers in the Big Freeze of 63 [actually I was 12 but same difference].  Our school closed for half a day which was virtually unheard of in those days [before Health and Safety went mad and every one was sent home at the sign of the first snowflake].  We had feet of snow for months and were out on those sturdy wooden sledges you only see in old films now [e.g.Citizen Kane

We have heavy snow forecast for Friday with travel disruption warnings aleady being put out, so not confident about driving over 100 miles to Surrey for our event.
