km10 - Roobs is going to over take me with her marathons this year
16/01/2013 at 22:26
Wow. I wanted to do one before i turned 40. Just going to do it as it is my 40th the day after my marathon

VLM will be number 25 for me (22 marathons and 2 ultras).  Went over to Bicester tonight to do intervals, I can't get a reasonably flat bit above 400m long round here.

Morning everyone

After a very positive start I've entered a definite slump this week.  Had too many interruptions during the day to make it difficult to get out - a condequence of all those grandchildren bless 'em

What part of Lincolnshire are you km10?  I'm originally from Peterborough but moved here to Brighton in 1989 but travel back to Peterborough every 4-5 weeks to see my mum. 

Talking of which THANK YOU WEATHER   Another week until I have to go up there.  She actually phoned last night and said she didn't think we should travel with all the snow and ice, just as Mr L and I were saying that that would be the last thing she would do!

Hi Lyndy, I live just outside Lincoln, grew up in spalding, so used to spend quite alot of my saturdays with mates in queensgate shopping centre, lol.

I was up near Peterborough havign lunch last week, can't remember where now!  We were meeting some friends who live in Tetney.

Been back to the gym today, was going to run but I was being a bit of a wuss about the footpaths being icy, Mr TS would kill me if I fell again and broke bones   Going off road is out as it is just too wet.

Did Spinning and a Pilates class, never done Pilates before, was OK but killed my back a couple of times (which is why I need to do it!!)

Heading up to London later, Mr TS has a business dinner he wants me to join him.  I should have had him put some clothes or shoes in the car as I am travelling up by train but have to be dressed smartly for the dinner, that's not so much of a problem, rather the jounrey home, 80 miles back down the M3, just hope the weather doesn't come in early, I'll look a right div on the hard shoulder in my high heels!!

Result there Lyndy   We should have been travelling up to Rugby but have put it off due to the weather.

Hello all

Lyndy - the bad weather brings some positives

TS - I don't blame you re: running in the icy conditions. I'll never risk it again after an awful fall two years ago!

Km10 - I have done VLM 4 times in 5 years! Twice by ballot and twice as Gold Bond places. Aiming for brighton now! I would have never thought I would complete  a marathon when I first started running....go for it!

I have only run once this week...did 5 miles on Monday and have done some spinning, kettle bells and zumba. I was planning on doing 5-6 miles this morning but I have a sore neck and shin so leaving it for the LSR at the weekend (weather permitting)! 


17/01/2013 at 21:08
Sitting on the sofa wrapped in a duvet. Very lazy! Probably run at the weekend. Thank goodness you don't have to travel Lyndy. Not sensible.
17/01/2013 at 21:19

Moving up to 12 mile this weekend, probably out in the snow . Great day today, honetly!!!! Got out to car this morning, started first time, then whilst i was outside clearing the windows, it cut out and would'nt start  had to get green flag out, apparently diesel goes all gloopy when temp below -10, was -12 here last night

17/01/2013 at 21:47
km10 - you need MWW duvet to keep your car warm

5 min x 4 intervals with 3 min recoveries.

17/01/2013 at 22:00


Well done on interval session Tracey

Sorry LTS duvet

Morning Ladies,

Safe journey back from London at midnight, no snow at all, it has arrived overnight though and we have about 3" at the mo, still snowing but has eased to light stuff.

Back and tum a little bit sore from Pilates so hopefully if I can stick with it I will strengthen my core and make it a bit more supple.

No chance of a run really today, will try to get out for a walk though.  Bad news re the car km  

Quick times there Tracey!

Keep warm and safe everybody

Was the "Morning" just to the ladies Topsec, or to us gents as well?  Lol. Or am i the only one on here . Hope you all have good weekend, got 5 mile to do tonight, just started snowing at home, again, then 12 on sunday, and according to met office, not really going to stop snowing all weekend  should be fun.

18/01/2013 at 15:48

km, you can be an honorary Lady

18/01/2013 at 16:01
Cinders - did Thomas go as school today?

Need more snow for Andre's sledge
18/01/2013 at 17:06
Evening ladies and gentleman. Yes you are our only man on here km but we usually get a few more as VLM approaches.
Not much snow here near the seafront when Mr L went to work this morning but he gave up and came home around 11 after Paul, our son, slid off the road twice in the side streets as it got worse (we have our own domestic appliance repair business km and Paul is one of our engineers).
It's been snowing steadily on and off all day now. Hope it doesn't stay around too long. Gets boring after a while
