Shades - IOM sounds good - I would love to stay for the week, but might not have the time for that! I'll look at my holiday diary when I hear when the dates are. It would fit into my 'a marathon every 2 months before I try one every month plan'.

Well done to anyone who went out running in the pouring rain tonight, it was fair chucking it down, plus side no-one else was out there and downside was very, very wet when we finished our somewhat shorter run tonight of only 5k. Still better than nowt.

The rain was so heavy. My running shoes are soaked through. Some mammoth puddles to run through too. I really enjoyed my run last night and really pushed it too.

Morning all.

Wet down here in Bristol, too. Well, it was when I was out on my run. It has, of course, stopped now. My usual sense of timing there..

Well I've done nowt so far this week as my cold rumbles on. Feeling sneezy today, and I hope to get out for a 3 mile plod to test the waters tomorrow.

Ahh, I'm not too far from you..I'm right in the centre of Wandsworth.

fraggle, hope your cold is gone soon.

Just over 4 miles this morning, alot warmer and dry today.

Been looking over marathon schedules and its very annoying there are virtually none for sub 5 hour marathoners who are NOT beginners.

I did a short (3mile) run last night but did it at a very quick pace. I'm really enjoying my running at the moment. A combination of orthotics and loosing 19.5lbs so far is really helping my running - Think I'll do 6 miles steady tonight.

I'm starting to feel very lethargic..not a single run since the 1/2 in Amsterdam on Sun! Wont have a chance really till saturday, but i guess 5 days off isnt going to hurt.

Trying to train at this time of year is hellish for me, i work in film and all the screenings for BAFTA/Oscar consideration start, so its a movie a night (or even 2 movies, like tonight!)till Xmas. Grrr.

I run during the day time Tinks so if you find your self at a loose end drop me a line .

I'm having a rest day today, scheduled and enforced as my little darlings are off school with 'I can't be bothered, it's the end of term and they're shattered'itis.

Off to Cornwall on saturday so Hills, hills, hills for me :-)

Would love to Josie, sadly i'm stuck in an office all day...grrrr.
