Hello all

Roobs - good luck for Brighton 10K

Hope all the lurgies have gone?

My cold is much better, I have run a couple of very slow 4-5 milers this week. Not been easy to get out as OH is in Huston at the moment, he went last Sunday but will be back middle of next week.

Have a good weekend everyone

Good luck for Brighton ladies tomorrow

Evening all!

Well done Roobs - especially after your ace preparation 

Manged 7 miles across the forest yesterday. Made the mistake of jumping over a puddle onto what turned out to be very slippery mud, and falling onto my hands and knees. Nice soft landing though.

Happy birthday to Tracey today!

You and your tumbles Diana  Although that is a very easy thing to do!

4 miles again today in 40:07, was especially pleased with it as there was only 3 of us today and the other 2 are speedier than me so I sent them off ahead and I plodded on my own listening to my audiobook.  Usually when I am on my own I either go off too fast and blow up or plod too slowly.

Really well done to you Roobs, if I had had a 'messy night' on Friday, I would still be wiped out on Sunday!

Happy Birthday Tracey

hi everyone

can i join you? am doing london marathon next year (will be my first marathon) and aiming for sub  5hours- so your group sounded perfect!

i used to run a lot, but in recent years have got a bit lazy, so now just gradually trying to remind my legs what running is and build up the miles..

Hi dj and welcome! Nice to 'see' you

Forgot to mention that Lyndy was very busy Saturday night making a banner for the end of the race with all the peach pics from our facebook 'turn facebook peach' campaign

Might try a parkrun on Saturday

Happy birthday Tracey

Morning everyone

Welcome dj gj.  My legs know exactly how your legs are feeling.  Just about managed to get two miles under my belt last week, my first run for months.  I'm supposed to be running with Roobs in VLM, but only time will tell   Not very good at putting the running gear on at the moment

20/11/2012 at 10:42

Well, I won't be running today.  Bliddy wind nearly blew me off the road on the cliff top ad that was in a big van fully loaded with appliances

20/11/2012 at 14:40
Lyndy - you would probably get washed away on the underclIff path
20/11/2012 at 22:48


I went to Tracey's club this evening and ran for just under half an hour - without walking Think I am finally getting somewhere now   I am going to run home from work on Thursday

Hope the wind drops so that you can get out for a run soon Lyndy

Great news Roobs! 

21/11/2012 at 15:38

Welcome dj gj - you sound like a lot of us on here - used to be runners   some of us still there and some getting back to it!  There tends to be more gossip on here than running talk sometimes but we like it that way!

We do have a wealth of experience though going back years!!  Not all of it useful mind you

Thanksgiving here tomorrow so we are heading to a resort and spa for a few days

I handed my VLM rejection slip in at my club yesterday, so fingers crossed.
