Morning all

Bit of a damp start, but the first run of the day done and dusted: 6.5m recovery. Off to make turkey stock now.... before the next run!

Young Cowboy. That really is bad luck.... Hope the recovery is swifter that anticipated. All the very best.....

Happy Christmas guys... It's been a great year on this thread. I will run at lunch with Lulu and it will bring yearly mileage to 2000 miles

Spark nice mutt.
Jason enjoy the stuffing and second run ,
AGF well done on your 2000 for the year.
Nice swim this morning 52 lengths wrist still sore gggrrrrr.
Will get out later for an easy 6 miles.

Stage 1 of Operation Trifle complete. Smell of cloves which are studded in the honey roast ham coming from the oven is making me feel very hungry! Off for run number two once ham comes out
24/12/2012 at 10:51
Don't eat the ham first lol

HM thanks & nice shopping

OH hope you're surviving the gales

NP well done on the windy long run and good swimming

Jason nice week's total. I hear what you and NP are saying about the knee, but having canned my Spring mara, that leaves my local half as the A race - that's on 24 March so not much time left. I'm going to carry on with low tempo miles and hope the niggle goes, but recognise I might need to cancel everything if it doesn't...

...also lol to the radiator but I'm banned from using them

Yc that's really bad luck. Wishing you a speedy recovery mate...

Kaz hope you're feeling better

Fiona hope you get out today

Mace lol well done on the 16m.  How was the MP section?

Spark love the dog!


3m recovery then some weights work carrying the "last minute" food shopping back home...  Merry Xmas all

Tek- best of luck with it, mate

Ham's done. So is second run 8.08m in 58.51 (7.17av). Lunch next, followed by stuffing making before next recovery run 

24/12/2012 at 12:57
7 miler done, rain came on half way round, Tilly hated it. She's all good though after a warm rinse down and shampoo in the bath.
24/12/2012 at 15:46

Stuffing done here and a nice six mile recovery run, out for a few drinks later. Think I saw Santa while I was out......

Saprk well done on the 7 miles thats a long way for such a small dog with little legs.

Happy Christmas every one hope you all have a good one.

24/12/2012 at 15:47

Cute dog Spark.

Well done on the cooking jason....can imagine the smell of that ham and cloves...  Trifle is my favourite but I can't trust myself to make it and not eat the whole thing.  Off to make a dessert to take to my folks tomorrow.

Lots of good running/swimming. Just on from work and decided one more day's rest as pretty tired. Did some core work but have planned 10 miles for tomorrow morning with one of the run group so have to be better for that!! I would have gone for an easy 3 or 4 miles today but would rather do 3 days decent mileage from tomorrow.

Foot is now encased in a moon boot a la Beckham and Rooney for 6 weeks.I did ask for a Luis Vuitton model but NHS Forth Valleys budget dosent stretch that far.

The good news is the orthopedic consultant reckons i will be mobile and moving again fully soon after the boot comes off.

Have a great Xmas guys and thanks to everyone for their support and kind words over this past year.


24/12/2012 at 16:19
Haha cheers.
Yeah she loves the running, done 10m last week, she was shivering with the rain though and wouldn't run the last 200 yards.

Anyway ill likely not be back on till Boxing Day so everyone have an awesome Christmas
24/12/2012 at 16:52
6.51m done. Most of veg prepped and trifle coming together. One more easy 4m to do and tomorrow's miles are all in the bag!
Happy Xmas everyone

Weather now calm and serene
- so after early finish at 4, I went for gentle moonlight 3 miles round Scapa.

A most unfortunate setback YC.
Hope you will be back on 2 feet as soon as the orthopod predicts.
