Minni v Dubai Dave
ST - nice one.
I'm hating today and going to go to bed. Two horrendous journeys in the snow. Fire alarm went off at work - right when it was raining ice. More snow here tonight. Depressing. Sorry.
Carrot - someone picked up my t-shirt yesterday.
ST - good work!
I swam 2.5km tonight.
It'll all be gone by Thursday Brolish
More snow here last night, not a lot but on top of the ice enough to make for an interesting journey to work. Luckily it made running much easier, although I don't suppose that will be the case on the way home. I hadn't really planned on a double today though My poor bike will think it has been abandoned................
ST - blimey, that's impressive, really well done!
Carrot - congratulations on your 2nd lady, very impressive!
AA - well done on losing your 50M virginity. I'm still trying to lose that cherry, so to speak...
Freemers - muchos kudos for a 20M TM run
2old - glad you had a decent holiday and made it back in one piece
Brol - you are mad, but glad you made it back ok!
Minni - don't beat yourself up about it. The intervals are in the bank, and it is always way more difficult to do them at silly o'clock than in the evening.O4S - I benefited from the top up of snow on Sunday, it's quite nice when it's like that.
I changed my normal route from 7M down to 5M this morning as was not nice at all running on treacherous pavements into work. Had a very heavy bag on too, which made balancing quite tricky. Definitely the least enjoyable run since I've been back, but as I was inclined to stop and get the bus at more than one point, it's definitely time in the bank.
(((Minni))) - OMG I am so sorry to hear that. Big hugs from me.
Minni: How devastating! You must be heartbroken . A ton of snow came down on our village overnight. Even 10 mm felt like hard hard work. I managed about 8 miles but no way I could have done strides in this. They said it's going to snow for the next 2 days . And then it's going to get cold . We have -6 at the mo - I don't need much colder than that ...Bro: thank god you met those friendly Canadians! I could have been a bear ... or an axe murderer ...
Minni-thats aweful-so sorry for your puppy and family. Can believe the car didnt stop..no one cares these days.
Oh dear what a nightmare Minni - poor dog. Damn car driver. I also find it harder on the treadmill - not sure why.
O4S - I'm in the same boat, was thinking about riding today but there is a lot of ice around. Might think about trying tomorrow.
Bro - that could have gone terribly wrong! Canada is a big country. Luckiliy it wasn't an evening run at least.
This snow is not shifting yet, so I will have to go back to the treadmill again tonight. Sigh. I ran much more previously on snow and ice - I even have yaktrax, but am paranoid about my achilles at the moment and don't want a slip to damage it again. It does look like it may be all gone by the weekend though, so the long run should be outdoors.

Very sad morning. Not long after I finished my intervals Mr Minni came come from the dog walk and our puppy (although almost two) has been killed by a car. They were in the fields and she chased something and must have got disorientated in the snow and headed for the road. We are all completely devastated. I'm broken. Bastard car didn't stop.
That's actually brought a lump to my throat. As a dog x 2 owner myself, my heart goes out to you.
Just popping in to say Minni ((()))
Feel so sorry for you, you must be heartbroken
I haven't run for a couple of weeks, resting the injury which seems to slowly be getting better. Yet another bout of the lurgy and the snow have at least removed the temptation to get out there and I can't say I envy all you lot having to do long runs in this, or worse, on the dreadmill!
Quick read back - Carrot, well done on a great 10k!
