Chilli, well done on your 5 miles.

Mrs Noel, 6 mths Sandy Holiday sounds fab.

Morning Jude, brilliant pic makes me wish I was in the Sun. Enjoy your breakfast.

Nothing for me today as I really do feel like I have been nit by a bus. My abs, legs, arms and derriere are all killing me.

Morning all,

Mrs Noel-Sounds like you have had a ncie 6 months- where have you been?

Jude-Nice picture of your siblings.

Ecky-Hope those aches go away.

hi all

Jude - sounds like a great day at the beach

AF - rest your ankle between now and Sunday, and make sure you are well hydrated

good luck to ex-MrsAF, bet your kids are proud of both of you

03/07/2013 at 17:45

AF - Good luck to you and your ex for this evening. Hope your ankle is OK.  And if it's hot on Sunday, expect to run slower and don't push too hard.

Ecky - Take pride in those aches and pains, you must have worked really hard!

MC - Hi!

Been picking pears all afternoon. So, I finally feel like a farmer's wife.

Ran 4 miles while kids were at swimming training.

Hi Boss, I hope they go away too cos they hurt . Middle Ecky thinks its as funny as when I fell down the stairs. Please be careful with that ankle too.

Thanks Jude, I reckon I worked too hard, I don't remember ever having doms this bad.


03/07/2013 at 22:46

Alastair, Ecky - I was in Afghanistan. Best thing to say about it is, there was nothing to fill your free time except Phys! 

03/07/2013 at 23:08

Oooo Ecky, that sounds painful!

My legs feel achy today but not sure why. Only did 5 miles yesterday.

AF - hope your ankle heels quick.

Jude - so lovely to hear your so happy and on holiday

Long bike ride today.

04/07/2013 at 06:32

Open water swim yesterday at a beautiful new venue plus strength at lunch. 

jude, sounds like a lovely day! 

Ecky, hope you ache less now. Get a foam roller on your legs lol

04/07/2013 at 07:39

I have just noticed your pic Mrs Noel, I take my hat off to you. I have a stick so I will use that today, I must be getting old. lol

Chilli it was agony and still sore today so trying an easy plod. I have not felt like that since I did boxing club..

Little plod today to loosen legs up and running club later but will just take the newbies. Off to get Big Girls prom dress taken up today.


04/07/2013 at 12:04


Mrs Noel-Total respect to you.

Ecky-Enjoy your little plod.

Jude-Well done on your 4 miler.

Well I did my hilly race and it was very hilly-so much so that I had to walk up a hill so recorded a 13 minute mile!! Going down was fast with a 7.00 minute mile.It was a lovely sunny evening on the downs & finished the 5.4 miles in 49.05 which I was happy with. Ex Mrs AF finished in 1.05- I even cheered her in!! My ankle held up ok & I have just has some physio- it is shin splints,but, he said I should be ok for running my 15 miler on Sunday. It feels a bit better for some massaging which is pleasing.

I will be taking it fairly easy on Sunday and run with a friend from my club and keep to her pace which is fairly similar to my pace nowdays- she's got quicker and I am slower!!! Lots of water is provided on route as well.

Hi all

AF, massaging the underside of your foot with a tennis ball (ie stand on and roll it gently) is helpful for shinsplints (and for lots of other problems too - it's a good habit to get into).

I did my coffee and croissant 10m run this morning .  The milk in the coffee and the almond paste in the croissant act as the protein and the pastry in the croissant acts as the carbs, perfect post-training meal .

Going to Battersea later to help marshal a Serpentines event.  Looks like it will be a nice sunny evening.



04/07/2013 at 17:01

well done AF and to your ex as well

13 min miles are pretty normal for me!

beautiful evening here, shame I have loads of tests to mark

04/07/2013 at 21:01

Evening everyone

well done on your race AF and good to know it's not serious enough to stop you running.

Louise, I really need to come and join you on those runs.

Ecky - hope plod and prom dress fixing went well.

We have had a rather highlystrung evening. Last year My Big Girl and No.3 won their school talent show with the duet from Aladin 'I will show you the world'. My twins are at a different school now, but my Big Girl got through the auditions and tonight was the final. She sang 'How do you know?' from Enchanted. She looked stunningly beautiful and has an amazing voice. But all the acts were brilliant and I honestly thought it was too close to call. But SHE WON!!!!!!!

Her prize is a term scholarship at a local theatre school. My No3 girl had made a strawberry cheesecake in faith that we would be celebrating afterwards so we have just eaten and are now trying to get everyone to bed.

The sad bit is that her best friend didn't win and has sent a horrible text message not wanting to be friends anymore. So now she is dreading going into school tomorrow

04/07/2013 at 21:27

Louise I like your thinking

Thanks Boss, only managed just over 1 mile as legs just so sore. Well done on your hilly race, sounds awful.

Mathschick that's such a shame you have to do work.

Yeeeeeeeeeeeey Chillis big girl is a superstar, lest paaaaaaaaaaarty .

Dress fitting went really well too thanks Chilli and only cost a few £ so bonus.

*goes off to find banners, poppers and congratulation balloons.

AF - Well done to you and your ex. Sounds like a tough race. Glad your ankle held up.

Chili - well done again to big girl! Hope she makes it up with her 'friend' at school today.

MC - Hope you got all your tests marked.

Ecky - Ooooo prom dress. How exciting!

Louise - Me too for the coffee and croissant run!

Mrs Noel - well done on your open water swim.

Well, yesterday was cup cake day. They turned out really nice even though I'm rubbish in the kitchen! And were all gone very quickly!

Another 4.5 miler yesterday evening while daughter was swimming. I went to the big park though for a change as it is much more shady and one lap is farther. We have enjoyed a week of really cool weather 26 -29C but it's gonna hot up next week. 

Today, I'm gonna do some more tidying up..... but we hope to go to the 'Foreigners in Bursa' meeting this evening after training, at a nice cafe in the city park.

Have a good Friday!
