Getting there

Managed to get out for another slow three miles on Tuesday.  Very strong head wind on the out run so was knackered by the time I turned round but the back wind was a welcome help.

Just been out today and done another three and knocked 2 minutes 10 seconds off Tuesday's time and I only intended to do a very slow plod.  Next run will be four miles

Hello all

Lyndy - lovely to hear you are getting back out there and doing so well

I haven't run for a few weeks after hurting my ankle during the Cardiff HM but did a short run on Thursday and I am going to try another short run today. Sort of looking forward to building up to marathon training now, just hope my old body is up to it again!

Ran 3 miles on Thursday and 4 miles today. Today was more enjoyable run????

Mawning all 

Thanks Tracey, Ciders and MWW.  Getting there slowly.

Managed a four mile plod on Monday, broken up with a few stretches and an enforced loo break. Actual running time - 46 min 48 seconds so not too bad

Well done Lyndy ???? Keep up the good work ????

All the good work's going to pot now Tracey.

Had planned on doing a three mile run yesterday but a delivery that was supposed to come didn't arrive.  Phoned Parcel Force and was told that the driver had run out of time and I'd definitely have it today by midday.  Still haven't received it.

Now on top of that I've got the grandkids staying until Saturday afternoon (DiL from Hell's  kids) because, once again, she's left everything til the last minute and there's no one to have her kids while she goes away for a couple of nights (yet again!!!!)  Don't know how someone who's not supposed to have any money can keep going away and leaving her kids every five minutes!!!!

Anyway, now have three kids and Mr Bones until Saturday and still waiting for a delivery that keeps not arriving.  

Hopefully the delivery will come tomorrow as promised, then I can get out for a run after its come.

And b-r-e-a-t-h-e - rant over!

Just take his Lordship for a run/walk on the football pitch with the kids Lynda

Already done a two mile walk at 6:45 this morning Tracey.  Next walk around 1pm which will be a long one hopefully, then a short one this evening.  Only problem is Mr Bones is not up to running and if we do break into a jog and he stops for a sniff it nearly pulls my arm out of its socket

All this and DiL from Hell stayed in bed asleep all day yesterday (her birthday) and has only just surfaced!!!!! Her hubby wasn't too impressed last night as he'd booked two nights away and has now wasted his money.  Still that's the selfish b***ch for you.

Oh well.  Brighton 10K is a DNS for me.  Got a nasty cold, feeling sweaty and got jelly legs

Lyndy - Roobs said Mr L is ill too ????

Hope you feel better soon Lyndy

75 years old and saving for a spring marathon. Run half and racewalk the rest. St Neots HM in 2:06;06 yesterday, so sub-5 seems possible.

22/11/2013 at 20:30

Go you Anthony!

I pulled out of Brighton 10k too as I had feppin stomach issues

Hello all

Lyndy - hope you are feeling better?

Anthony - sub 5 definitely on the cards

I am just starting to try and build some miles again after my ankle sprain during the Cardiff Half. A nice (rather cold) 6 miles this morning

23/11/2013 at 10:53

MWW - well done on your cold 6 miles

04/12/2013 at 23:21

Evening - finally had time to find a Sub 5 group so thought I'd call in and say hello.
