Thanks everyone

carterusm - haha I meant the 'official' training plan starts Monday, of course... the way I feel right now, I reckon I could probably run non-stop until then (promise I won't though, Sam!)

mcs - I don't have it stockpiled! But sure I have a rasher or two in the fridge that I can send you way...

BoDuke - thanks, amazing feeling, isn't it?! Looking forward to lots of tips from you, if you don't mind!

knight rider - Thanks *sigh* it's going to be tough!!

Sleepy Bear - sounds like I'll be finding out very soon...! I'll keep you posted!

seren nos - yeah, kept that one quiet, didn't I? If it helps, I'm a little bit posher than your average Essex lad. I even went to grammar school! Thanks

Sam - thank you so, so much for the opportunity! Really looking forward to speaking to you and getting started on the road to Paris...

Well done Steve. Extremely happy for you. Good luck with everything and see you on Sunday.

Ooh I'll be taking a keen interest in your training and development. You've got similar times to me and I've just signed up for my first marathon in Vienna April next year. Currently 22:24 5K and 1:49 half. I'm looking forward to reading your posts.

Well done and good luck!!

Hi Mark, great to meet you too, was such a great day - everyone seemed to smiling all day!

Thanks, really looking forward to cracking my first mara - I will be after you for loads of tips and advice. I hope you realise that...

Cheers Shady, you too Glad to see you've dragged yourself back onto Twitter after an absence of literally several hours...  See you Sunday!

KatyLo - Thanks, and wow, incredibly similar times! My 5k is 22:22 and 1:52 for a half... Going to try and post as much as possible about the whole experience so hopefully we can all get as much out of it as possible.

I'm also on Twitter - @Steve_Waites - and I've found that a really handy way of updating and adding pics too so I reckon that'll be a great way of everyone keeping in touch about the whole process as well!

Good luck in Vienna!

hey, your mum sounds a bit like me. I use to work in a pub aswell until I qualified. I never served any footballers though (im guessing the local pub team doesnt count) but I did serve Sean Bean a few times.

Tigger I bet that weekend is fabulous....must add it to my list of things to do

15/12/2012 at 09:36

Good Morning!! though of you as I made bacon sandwiches this morning has to be done with a hangover! although Nuun is also good for hangovers!!


15/12/2012 at 10:20

Sarah - Ha! Every time someone mentions Sheffield, Sean Bean seems to turn up...!

Tigs - Nothing beats bacon when you have a hangover...


Speaking of which, I had to say a painfull four month farewell to fry-ups this morning... I'm not going to lie, I did shed a tear 

Felt a bit like the last supper.


15/12/2012 at 10:27

Now that doesn't float my boat!

But if we are after a good hangover food it has to be fish and chips and a can of coke! Hummm Maybe should of had a few more cans of coke and a few less pints last night??

Although all that said! I haven't actually got a hangover! I just have ringing ears and sound like I have a cold!

Can't beat our running club when it come's to a night out!!  we train hard and play harder!! WHoo hoooo bring on tomorrows fuddle! Running Christmas party take 2!

15/12/2012 at 18:20
That's sound similar to my hard, play harder!

I'm going to sound really dull now but I always crave jacket potatoes when I'm hung over!
15/12/2012 at 18:29
Love that my thread keeps reverting back to food tells you everything you need to know about me! Haha

Nothing wrong with a jacket potato! What's the filling of choice?

Tigs, you going again tonight??
15/12/2012 at 18:46

Chilli and cheese is my preferred filling!! or if its a cold filling I have to have them separate!

And no Bacon after 3 hours sleep on my sofa and shifting a trailer full of logs I'v got a hot date with my PJ's and a cup of tea!

I'm having the christmas fuddle tomorrow afternoon! only about 12 of us everyone brings a bit of something, we drink and eat! the Runners Christmas Party Part 3 is on Thursday, a pub run then drinking after!

What is the plan for tomorrow then?
