Yes it's minus one in central London tomorrow morning, apparently.

Will do Scott, going up some hills in Wales tomorrow at 9am although, main bit is only 200 feet short of being classed as a mountain. Eeek. The joke goes how can you make it into a mountain - take 100 people with you.
Wonder if I can find the teleport function on my Garmin like Scott's... That might be handy.

Congrats Fido. And Susan too.

Susan harsh about only running from me. I have occasionally mentioned odd articles, cake, weight loss (new 30" jeans being worn tomorrow), some uber circuits. Err, and cake? Okay, got me a little!

So today, I did an errr tiddlywinks speed "game"? 6 short half games. They were quite fast. Then I went shopping, for various things including special tiddlywink shoes, but my feet are big so had to order them.

Red Sea cruise sounds great Didds. VoK awesome. Temple at Karnak too? Sure you saw all. Are the street sellers still doing every accent, asking you where you were from? Very funny hearing perfect Sean Connery, Geordie & Scouse from 70 yr old Egyptians.

Just watched the Bradley Wiggins Sky documentary ... Phenomenal. If you've got Sky, and not seen it yet, do a search or watch on demand. Very inspiring.

Good luck Ikle in 10k, and Scott with 10 miler.

Morning all

Hope all are well

FIDO- Anyone who can run a sub 7 mile in not unfit! We just live in a different world

Cold in Lincs but a good day to run (hope it went well Scott) Not much from me I will not be coming down for FLEET just does not work which is a shame. Going for a run by the canal in a bit but with my GARMIN set on Sunrise( shows nothing.)  Im tired due to work so no pressure and just want to plod December although hope at some point to keep my 20 miler a month stretch going.

I think I did just under 51 mins naked. Wanted to get under 50 so bit disappointed, but was not busting a gut. And no knee pain.

Sounds good Ickle .. Well done

Not doing Fleet don't think Martin think need to do the Finchley 20 schedule wise ..

Ikle - I did that Regent Park 10K last year as I was in London the weekend it was on.  I really enjoyed it which is unusual as I usually hate 10Ks! susan and a couple of her friends ran it too - I seem to remember it was part of a series that were run on the first Saturday of each month throughout the winter?

Fido - that sounds speedy for 1500m.

Hi folks. Nene valley 10 miler was good today! A nice flat course, with a few bumps. I managed sub 85, which is where I wanted to be! Got half way round and helped up a chap that did major face plant! Generally a good event.....

And did you get up to any thing Jovi ?????????
Well done Scott

Susan - I did a little run in the country on Saturday  

Well, it was quite a longish run! Frostbite 30 race - an ultra around the Yorkshire Dales near where I live.  It was a spur of the moment decision to enter last week as hadn't heard about the event until then.  Due to dangerously icy conditions they cut one section out which was round a steeply banked reservoir where they were worried about people falling in on the icy path!  Did the amended route which was 27.57m in 5:15 (2600ft of climbing) - fantastic day out - loved it - sunny and very cold and amazing views from the tops of the hills.  Quite treacherous underfoot in places on the tracks - sheet ice so lots of mincing on the descents.  Ran the first half very steady with a mate and then speeded up a bit in the second half. It was my mate Johns first ultra and he's not run a marathon for several years (our original plan until I heard about the race was for a 15-16 mile long run - the furthest he would have ran in several years!) so he did amazing to get round in 5:45.  One of the best organised events I've done - lots of signage (although I still somehow managed to miss a direction arrow and make a slight navigational error on the short section of the course you actually ran on the out and back leg!)  Lots of marshalls and refreshments enroute - including hot drinks at some of the checkpoints.  Thankfully the mud was frozen solid most of the way round so only got my feet really wet in the last few miles of the return when the mud had melted.  Would definitely recommend the event. Its the first time for a while I've done a race carrying a heavier pack which I really noticed how much difference it made.  When I did the Ripon ultra it was warm so didn't need to carry as much spare kit.  Legs didn't seem to suffer too badly at all - quads a little stiff but really not bad at all - hoping to do a recovery run tonight.

Nice running Jovi......sounds like a nice event. Used to live near Skipton myself where was this event?
Went out and did 11 miles of the Grindleford Gallop route from Baslow to Longstne and it was a bootiful afternoon up on the Edges overlooking Chatsworth and Bakewell, though cold wet and icy in places under foot. Some severe hills so made me walk in places managed to do it in 1.50 with all the stiles on the last couple of miles that slows you down, so I have discovered how to do a longer slow run, run up hills for about four miles and include a load of stiles too. Last hour was in the dark with head torch on, illuminating sheeps eyes who didn't seem too perturbed to see a nutter in a yellow jacket running through the heather and over the moors.  Nespresso time anybody want one???

mcs - route was Pateley Bridge, Gouthwaite Reseroir, up onto moors, Dale Edge, down to and around Scar House Reservoir, back up and over the tops to Middlesmoor & back through How Stean gorge to Pateley Bridge.  Your 11 miles sounds great - just the sort of route I like - which is just as well as thats what most of the running around where I live is

It was quite funny at the end of the race.  The organisers were just getting a drink out the back of their van and I had to shout out - yoo hoo, I'm finishing as I crossed the line as they didn't see me cross the finish line!

03/12/2012 at 12:11

always nice to be noticed when you cross the finish line!!!

03/12/2012 at 12:12

they were preoccupied in the van and didn't see me crossing the line - I know the time wasn't important but I wanted to make sure they did notice I'd finished so I got an official time!

03/12/2012 at 12:19

Nice just listened to Marathon Talk and got a mention on rate your run.....fame at last!!!
