JJ sounds as though you really enjoy being with your children.

Session at the gym this afternoon.

not sure about the half marathon on Sunday now as there has been alot of snow, it has melted and re-frozen so road outside my house is like an ice-rink. Will have to wait and see if its gone by Sunday.

Have a great weekend everyone.

They are very good (most of the time)

Sounds horrid weather, very cold and bright here.

looks like its been snowing on and off all night, unless there is a sudden thaw I doubt I will be running tomorrow.

My dog loves this weather and runs about the garden barking and trying to catch the falling snow and whines to get out and wants to play snowballs.

Wish I was a kid again sometimes so I can go snowballing and sledging and not worry about having to drive places and such responsible stuff.

2nd Anniversery of meeting you this weekend :-)

4 miles D&D as Barnsley runner puts it. I just wanted to tick over but I kept thinking about the race and my speed crept up and then my HR would beep. After 3 miles I gave in and walked the last mile. still did it in 50 mins tho :-)

JJ - Good run - it's hard to keep slow sometimes isn't it?

Hippo - good on you for running even when things are crap. I'm going to try a couple of miles this afternoon - it's cold here, but sunny.

I am tired - had to drive Bryan the Snail to Newcastle airport last night and got home at 2 this morning! He's gone to Spain, but I've stayed home to deal with house buying/selling and bridging loans. :((

((((benz))))) hope things improve at work from now on, glad to hear you are still finding time to get out and do a couple of miles here and there.

((((debbo)))) what can I say, house moving is always tough, maybe doing it myself early next year. Not sure I could cope on my own.

I have a planned rest day today so don't have to brave the snow and ice, but it does look nice outside now with the sun shining and a nice blue sky.

JJ best of luck for tomorrow.

Thanks William.

Jane - good luck for tomorrow if you manage to get to your race. Edinburgh has stayed sunny but cold, with no sign of snow yet! I still don't feel right, despite superstrength lemsip :(((((

thanks debbo, its still a bit icy and the snow is still around so unless there is a big thaw overnight I doubt I will risk running tomorrow, as I find it difficult to even walk on icy pavements never mind run on them. So it will be the gym for me tomorrow and I will make it a two hour session to make up for the half marathon I could have run. It is minus 2 at the moment, just been out for a chinese and a couple of glasses of wine.

debbo, hope that Lemsip works and you are 100 per cent tomorrow.

wimped out of my half marathon as it was still very icy this morning and then it started to rain really heavily so the roads and pavements became very slippy. Gyms can be very boring if you spend too much time in them.

Jane - sorry you missed your half. I take it you have been in the gym all morning instead!? I am still not feeling well, but no worse. Maybe a day off work tomorrow will sort me out. :))
21/11/2004 at 14:36
hope you did a tready half marathon Jane;))
get well soon debbo
21/11/2004 at 15:27
no tready half marathon, but did a few miles on the tready and then 40 mins on the x-trainer and then some weights for my legs. Dripping all over the treadie after 5 mins and the same for the x-trainer and I now have a headache because I didn't drink enough water, never mind will learn for next time.

Roads will be lethal if it freezes tonight.

debbo get better soon.

I plan to!! I am usually never ill - at least don't get colds or flu, but this winter have not been well at least twice. Maybe it is running that does it?

Hi guys

Back from not so sunny Brighton :-)

I took splits at 0.6 of a mile as my polar only does 1 dec place.

Km Pace Ave HR
1 8:47 163
2 9:06 171
3 9:01 175
4 9:19 176
5 9:17 176
6 9:18 177

We make a turn here and head in to a brisk head wind.

7 9:24 178
8 9:30 180
9 9:40 181
10 9:08 181

Over all 58 mins :-)

Bung that into McMillans and it throws out 4:32 marathon!!!!!!!

Mr J did 54:20 a new pb by 11 mins!!!!

I am very pleased that I maintained a good pace the whole way.

Could I have run any faster? Well I was having very stern words with my self over the last Km. Poeple must have thought I was mad but it works for me. I still sprint finished but I was pretty close to my limit. I also have a new max HR of 192 bpm.

We went on to the peir with the kids at the end and had a really nice day :-)

21/11/2004 at 16:22
well done JJ, fabulous time and you put in a very fast last km.
