You weren't really going to microwave it were you? It is actually possible to deep fry a turkey - hmm.

 So glad I left a really wet home in the Pennines to do Christmas in nice, dry, sunny Kent   It's dreadful in places but there are some nice muddy rural trails to run on slightly higher ground.

Take it easy Orenzo

Good beer choice Ant, Old Empire pale ale =

Rich - which schedule are you following?

No Poacher, it was too big to fit in the microwave.

The R W Sub 3 15. Going well so far. Better once I shake the cold.

Xmas turkey for me today in the 10k, 41:53, was awful and how I convinced myself it was a good idea I'll never know.

Glad the turkeys turned out well. We had an alternative approach to Xmas this year and everyone in the family (6 of us) cooked 2 tapas dishes each and we ended up with a nice family cooking effort and a spread which has lasted all of today too - washed down with cava to keep the theme going.

60min on the spinning bike whilst watching the footy  - decent run out planned for tomorrow

I ran the parkrun/Woodlawn course at 6:30am this morning Speedy (it was extremely icey at that stage). Then I flew to Geneva with the family for a few days away. Turkey sandwiches for the journey...

If only every commuting day were like today...

Sounds like the thread were well fed & watered over Christmas, and a bit of running thrown into the bargain.

Another successful lunch here, after an intial panic when we had a power cut from 8-10, just when the girls had finished opening their presents from Father Christmas and we were contemplating getting the turkey in the oven. So a rather delayed 3pm lunch, but at least the power came back and it worked out in the end. Bit of a stressy couple of hours in the morning though!

Had a rest day on Christmas itself, then 9 early yesterday morning with 4 at mara pace, all done on similar icy roads to those experienced by others. Just me and the wildlife though, so backed off on the slippy sections and enjoyed it. 5 easy on the schedule today, trying out some new running kit gifted by various members of the family. Then after a very quiet day at the office, a return to a houseful of extended family!

 Day off or me today but managed a 14 yesterday and 5 the day before so still on track. Christmas dinner at SIL made it as stress free as it could be, but put a shift in last night with my family over.

Take it easy Lorenzo.

I have started the sub 3:15 RW training program this week, its going to be a bit of a challenge for me, I havent run a marathon before.  I ran a 1:37:44 half marathon in September but havent followed any specific training plan since (I have been running about 20miles a week since then) I dont know whether perhaps I am being a bit optimistic but I like a challenge.

Welcome never know till you try so give it a go.

An easy paced (but certainly didnt feel easy after 2 days of filling my face with no running)  16 miles this morn with only 1 large fallen tree to climb over along the river path and a few small ponds to splash though .

The p&D schedule with its  long runs with a few miles at mara pace is looking a bit too tough for me yet  Did have a listen to the hour long podcast on marathon talk though and it was interesting.

Hi Leslie, thank you.  Can you link me to the pod cast please I would be interested to listen.


27/12/2013 at 14:51

If this doesnt like just put it into google si  Its Pete who wrote advanced marathoning the p&d book as its called on 'ere .

awesome thank you

no running planned today but insanity rolls on! long run (13) tomorrow as have friends coming over in the evening and cannot run after a few beers

27/12/2013 at 20:46

Welcome SiUK.  I think 3:15 may be a challenge for you this time around but around 3:30 might be comfortably doable.

Lorenzo - a turned ankle should be ok in a few days.  Get the ice out.  I have to say my bread sauce was particularly good this year too!

GM - sounds like a good 10k to me.

20 planned for the morning.  Its still blowing a hoolie here, hope it drops before tomorrow.  

New Year's day I'm going to do a fell race - 4 miles.... all up!  It finishes on the top of the hill then its a jog back to the pub at the bottom.  I'm wondering if Fraser might rock up to the start line.

27/12/2013 at 21:06
So how is Fraser getting along? I tried to check him out on power of 10 with little success. Doesn't seem to show too much.

No running from me today as calf still sore, I was going to go out on my bike but was banned due to the high winds. I'll have go on it tomorrow as I don't think I'll be running for a few days yet. I've had enough of this booze and gluttony.

Take it a bit easy with that RW 315 plan SiUK as it's a bit of a step up on 20 mpw.

4 x 1 mile reps for me tonight, and I must say it was not pleasant, although strangely it got better as it went on. My head is just not into it at the moment and after the first rep was quite frankly bloody awful it was all I could do to actually keep going. In fact if I'd been near home rather than at the far end I probably wouldn't have bothered. Had a strong word with myself however and they got better - 6:56, 6:48, 6:40, 6:46, with 2 & particularly 4 into the wind. This time 2 years ago I was getting close to sub-6 for 6 of them!
