BR - you are a cad sir! Eloping from the big smoke without handing over your congestion charge, tsk tsk. Next you'll be selling your race numbers on e-bay {o:

Happy birthday Hipps, I am sure you will love the Garmin..the bit that tells you the number of calories burnt is interesting.

Very well done at the 5k last night URR & Paul, cracking races from the pair of you.

Good session Micksta, well done.

Didn't have time to post last night, so a brief summary from our club 8.2 mile handicap race. Mildly undulating course, the biggest problem was a strong breeze in the middle section of the race. As this was my 1st race since FLM I didn't really know what to expect, the last 3 weeks have been a diet of rest days and steady runs.

Pleasantly surprised to run my quickest time to date on this course, 53:23 which pans out at 6:30 miling. My recently acquired Nike Ekidens felt very comfortable, I will use these in the shorter races from now.

5 miles easy tonight.

Best of luck to anyone racing this weekend.

Hi all,

am still alive over here, although still no running. Paul M - I am in Charlottesville at the moment, but travelling around a bit. Was just in Williamsburg!

Seem to have drunkenly acquired a tattoo in the meantime!

Melissa ! Really - Do tell - what, where, how, why, when, and whether it's visible to all and sundry!

(What 5.3 miles steady route, breaking feet into new Nike Streaks - waiting for blister mark to subside. Good to be out.)

this morning i could walk properly again for the first time since overdoing the gardening on monday!!

so at lunchtime i ran 4 miles at about 10k pace with a colleague from work (think it was more like 1/2 marathon pace for him!!!)

Blisters: it's a butterfly in the small of my back, about 12 centimetres across and 10cm long. A 'sword-tailed beautymark' to be precise (blues and pink). Have to confess that wasn't totally pissed - had been thinking about it for a while, but needed two martinis and a strawberry daq for courage! It is quite beautiful, or will be when it settles down, and will be perfectly visible above my running shorts!

Melissa my wife thinks it's so cool that you were in Williamsburg. She's all homesick now!
