Cheers Tek! SPROUTS ARE NOW PEELED!!! Bring it on!

Jason, you're a machine. Lol
24/12/2012 at 21:01
Jason - WTF !!? Mrs mace would think something was going on if I went out running 4 times in a day. Fair play though.

Tek - MP was ok but I was glad to get it over and slept well last night The beers the night before certainly didn't help and I was feeling a bit queasy last couple of miles. I don't drink durin my runs but think I probably should have.

Happy Christmas

Yes I feel quite smug now and look forward to tomorrow off. I hope you have stretched Jason

Amazing run total for today jason but I'll be very surprised if you don't sneak out for at least one tomorrow!

Well done Night Nurse, great Xmas Eve running.

I'm reading about running but it'll be an early night as have an early run planned for tomorrow.

Merry Christmas everyone!

NN stretched 4 times in fact
Fiona- enjoy tomorrow's run, but I can promise you I am not moving outside tomorrow

Fab run, 11.65 miles, 5 of uphill and saw the sun rise, Loch Ness in the background etc. Still feeling dodgy so nothing to eat before heading out.  Ran ok apart from the stitch on the downhill, ouch. Does prove that nothing to do with eating or drinking before a run!

A very well deserved rest day jason.

Off to make a pudding.

Nice 9 this morning, sun, wind and rain but enjoyable all the same, time for lunch!

Great running Fiona and a great way to see the day start enjoy your pudding and have a great day.

MG1 Well done on your 9 miles and enjoy your lunch.

6 miles in the bag done as 1 mile warm up 4 x 1 mile intervals and 1 mile cool down splits: 7:54, 5:53, 5:56, 5:49, 6:05, 7:43 started to feel the burn in that last mile  Out again later for another 6 miles with some strides.

Hope everyone is enjoying the day so far.
