Why: I did do yesterdays hill session after all (although I only did 10 hills while all the speedy boys did 16) so my legs are quite tired today. Trying to improve my swimming technique - next year I will try a tri

Hi pb - yes, I am the Icelandic forumite. Or at any rate, the forumite who lives in Iceland.

so you'll be the Icelandic forumite who writes so eloquently about the joys of running in Iceland in this week's RW letters column, and who comes on here every day and whinges about how miserable it is running in Iceland. ;-)

Don't winge! Merely point out that it's a bit dark at the moment! And there are too many dead rabbits, jellyfish and F15 fighter planes for my liking. Not to mention the dog poo.

Sulking now. Off to off licence. And as I pointed out on another thread, only wrote the letter to win trainers and that didn't work. So REALLY sulking. Big time. Bah!

Lizzy -

of course you don't whinge - honestly I love your reports from the frozen north.

although I suspect that your original letter was full of roadkill and fighter planes, but those shiny happy people at RW edited to make it all sound so much more fun.

Post-Thanksgiving Day Feast run, 6.5 miles. Think I ate too many desserts in one day -- pumpkin pie, chocolate cake, ice cream and 3 big cookies which resulted in another bit of struggling today. Still looking for the elusive easy run. The bad news is I'm going for another Thanksgiving dinner with in-laws tomorrow. Plus there are all these leftovers...

Key session:
Thru 8 miles in 51:58, but then
8½ miles in 55:36 - at which point I'd basically died on my @rse - so called a halt at that point.
I get a bit further each time before losing it - but not far enough it seems.....

Hi all

Gorgeous outing early this morning from Bank of England along Victoria embankment with the river just coming to life, down to Big Ben and Parliament, over the bridge to the old County Hall, past the Dali exhibition, the London Eye etc etc, back to the Bank.

How far: No idea
Why: See above - urban running at its finest and what better way to start a business trip. Back to rainy Brussels now.

Good weekend to everyone racing or training or resting!
