have a great time all!!!
totp and fotd??
Thanks Didds xx
Have a lovely time all. Don't miss me too much. XOXOXOXOXO.
Twas a great evening. Cocktails were had (but the boys reverted to manly beer after one). Great to meet ACoops in person. We had a toast to Smeags for his wedding and to absent friends. And a huge thanks to Susan for my room at the Willesden Hilton.
Booo. Sounds far too lovely. Any photos?
Ikle, Jovi and I will have to meet for some Mojitos during Thunder Run to make up unless another meet is planned.
Last night went to N Wales, pal is doing the Excalibur marathon tomorrow & wanted to stretch legs so we ran up and down the summit of Moel Famau twice 1.6m x 4, 16-17 mins up, 12-13 down. Now that is a hill (nearly a mountain) ! Soaked through, but we had a giggle. Coffee and cake afterwards of course.
Good luck to LO65, Quinn, and others doing various marathons. Fido this weekend too?
was a bonus to meet ACoops who was very lovely and very young .. hope she survived her night out with the middle aged (not ancient as somone claimed) I was shocked to find I was the oldest there - which reminds me where were you Umbongo and Howard ???? needed you both to help with the age balance.. I did text you Umbongo and got a message back this morning saying THIS IS NOT ROBERT have you sold your phone??
it was lovely and the cocktails were only a fiver up til 7pm so we got through them quick!! bonus too to have Coxy there ... so yes another meet up soon for all the others...
tiring week so I am going to volunteer to do the stopwatch this eve at the track cos our coach is away - like the idea of another rest day ... not run since last saturday ... oops...
happy happy wedding SMeags and run like the wind all you marathon runners
Have obv p*ssed everyone off using the word 'ancient'
I have to try to get to a fizz about my ankle. Which has now become my 'foot'. Swelled up after cutting the grass last night. The whole blimmin foot. This is getting ridiculous. My right hand is also similar and has been for two weeks now. Weird. Falling to pieces.
Going to B'mouth to help a researcher from Portsmouth Uni make some safety videos with/for the RNLI. Don't really know what's going on but she wanted people who were prepared to get in the water. Might take my wetsuit if we've got to hang around in the water for any length of time.
I also have my new Dryrobe. A huge sort of waterproof, windproof, fleece-lined nuns habit that doubles as a sort of personal changing tent. It's lush. Another level of 'bag lady' post-swim fashion.
you should not have used the ancient word AH its making you fall apart!!
Had a lovely lie in this morning - how blissful -
forgot to say how we missed you Wabo and raised a toast to you too and your fab VLM time - hope you are having a fab time at wedding.
10 km tomorrow - not run for a whole week. feeling a bit blobby -
'Twas a great evening indeed! Really great to catch up again and never fails to amaze me how well we all get on like we see each other every day, not as has been in my case normally once a year or with Dave five years ago!
Nice brisk 6-miler this morning as warm up for an afternoon of gardening/tidying garage . Still, off out for special dinner tonight as two years tomorrow since me and OH 'met' online. And bonus of missing Eurovision too!
AH the dryrobe sounds great.
Gonna be warm and rainy tomorrow! Que sera...(goes off to put Vaseline pot next to Garmin). The hotel is hosting several groups of East African elites, including a few Ugandans - has Mr. Kiprotich started a trend, or was it all bubbling under anyway?
Saw the pics on FB, looked fun.
I'm watching Eurovision with Dad stepmother brother basey and son, notepads in hand.
In other news, I got a new 5k PB. Smashed it at 23:41.
Well done on the PB Ikle
Great PB Ikle .. Warm tomorrow , hurrah for BBQ , less hurrah for 10 km
Hanks. Enjoy run. I then ran a further 8 miles in preparation for Southend half soon. Now I have achy hips.
Yes hurrah for barbecue here too! So much for wedding dress diets!
Whoa, that was nasty. None of the promised rain, temps in the middle-20s. Felt a bit sick and tired. Scraped in under five hours. Then threw up. It says it all that I just wished I had thrown up earlier! By gum, that medal was earned today. OH did 2:12 - over ten mins slower than his HM PB earlier this spring - gives you an idea. LOL it was this ghastly death march at the back, mostly Finns, Poles, er, me, all of us perhaps not 100% used to that much sunshine and warmth. It is, nonetheless, a season's best, and the dodgy foot held up, and I have now seen quite a bit of Riga!
I have had a shower and am now tucked up under a duvet, but mysteriously I still suffer from Stinky Runner Reek, so I might have to have another one! Then we can go on a canal tour (hint:mostly SITTING DOWN).
Second British lady home
Back from Windermere. 4.28 (4.15 last year) I think they made the same hills steeper this year.
Good news is I won the FV60 trophy. Spent the Pete Bland voucher right away on some lovely running kit (no over F65 trophy and prize??)
Need to sleep now!
