I'm guilty of going off too fast when I am on my own too km, I tend to run a lot more to my Garmin these days, so try to ease off if I look and see I am going too quickly!!

Hello all

KM - welcome...well done..great running.I live in South Wales...lots of hills! I am doing Brighton this year, have done London 4 times but like you got the elvis mag this year!

Tracey - I have a feeling I am going to be even slower than usual this year...if Brighton forgiving of the slowcoaches?

TS - I would be lost without my Garmin

I'm South or else East Midlands depending on if you are talking TV or electrikery

I have to confess to not having been onto RW in ages   *waves to everyone*

I know some of you read my blog on Fetch so know what has been happening in my life but here's a summary:
MiL has been in hospital since September.  Her mental state is not what it was and she can't go home but they are still trying to work out the best type of care for here and who pays (health or social care).  Everything has been delayed by the fact a psychologist recommended a psychiatric assessment that didn't happen.  Until Christmas we were going to Leamington 4 times a week but are now trying to get away with just twice as we were knackered and the petrol costs were huge.

I have a ballot place for VLM and this week signed up to run for Breast Cancer Care as my SiL's breast cancer has returned with a vengeance.  She is now on borrowed time courtesy of some radio and chemotherapy, we don't expect her to be with us for next Christmas.

I kept running through last year but did no specific training beyond that.  Last week I got myself started with intervals and stuff like that again.

Bridget - if you give me a link to your charity page I will sponsor you in the next month or so. No money at the moment

Hi USB *waves* I have been keeping up with your blogs. I don't comment very often but I keep up to date xxx

A couple of months ago I contacted a charity called GRACE who raise funds for womens gynae cancers so as you can imagine, a charity like this would be very close to my heart. At the moment there is a research project taking place into womb cancer in women under 40. One of my friends is 22, was diagnosed at 19 but is now sadly terminal Her GP didn't think anything was wrong with her and thought 19 was too young to have anything serious. Anyway, I wanted to raise money for this research and asked GRACE if they would ringfence my funds for it. The answer has come back as yes I am going to run all my marathons this year to raise funds - 6 entered so far and probably an 7th very soon as legless said he would also run it

Hello everyone. Some good running going on. Managed 6 miles on Sat with a sharp wind and driving rain along the seafront. 6 miles on Sun in the sunshine. Looking forward to cheering you on at the Brighton half.

Wow, well done LTS, I bet Sunday was much nicer than Saturday?

Roobs, speed isn't everything, you are doing great anyway!?  I did speed up a few years ago when I did speed training at the club, lots of reps did it.  Soon lost it again though

Spin class was good, kept forgetting I wasn't on my bike and that you couldn't stop pedalling, nearly fell off a few times   Luckily I was in a corner and nobody saw me!  Going to try Circuit Training tomorrow - it says it's for the over 50's and I sort of thought "oh no, that's no good" but then I remembered my age and realised that's me   I forget how old I am!
