I'm thinking of going to the running shop tomorrow to look at trail shoes. It's going to be weeks before this mud has gone. Any suggestions?

Good evening,

Well it's ages since i've had time to post,but i have been having a quick read,and i'm sort of up to speed.So....

Chili,a very belated Happy Birthday.

Louise,well done on that marathon.I couldn't help but chuckle at the thought of you feeding the cat during the race.

By Eck,sorry to hear of your troubles with little moo.I am thinking of you.

Marathon trainees,don't worry too much about your schedules getting behind due to the weather.I lost a week in my 2011 mara training due to snow,and you can easily make it up.Just don't try and overdo it to compensate.At worst all you may have to do is have a slightly shorter taper.

Well,i'm just concentrating on getting through my Mum's funeral on Thursday,and then i'm going to start back on my comeback,and aim for a marathon in 2014.I've decided to do Brighton again,as i really enjoyed the first one,despite the tough conditions,and i'm going to be running it for my Mum.I feel like i'm sort of in limbo at the moment.I think we need to have the funeral to get some kind of closure,and allow us all to grieve and then move on with fond memories of a wonderful person.At the moment it still doesn't feel real.and it is easy to forget that she's gone.I still expect to find her when we go to my Mum and Dad's house.

Anyway i'll be back after Thursday,and i'll actually be a running member of the club again.I've just renewed my membership with Romsey Road Runners,so i'm all set to hit the road again.

Awww DJ - we will all be thinking of you on Thursday and sending you hugs. I'm sure it is going to be a difficult time but it is wonderful that you have lovely memories to treasure.

Sorry i have been AWOL for a few days. I tooks my teens away to Cambridge for a youth weekend. And have been very busy today. We have a new family at church with special needs kids so we are looking at what we need to provide in Sunday School in order to include them and function as a proper session rather than them running riot everywhere! Anyway I had a very helpful meeting this morning with a lady who could advise us and give tips and suggestions.

The snow and ice have gone and now we have high winds and driving rain. Managed 5 miles this evening and got so wet I had to wring out my hat, trousers etc!

Still packing....(this is a three day job - how did I get so much stuff )

Had committee meeting last night for a race I help marshall / organise and it happened to be one of the other's birthday.  Date cake.  Chocolate and cream cake.  And then a bit more date cake .  Better start training again.

Morning all!

DJ - thinking of you, especially on Thursday.

Louise - Good luck with the last bit of packing.

3 days of the holiday gone already. We took the kids to the book shop and cafe yesterday and they chose some books as a prize for their excellent reports and music exams. Hubby is dyeing my hair this morning and kids have swimming training this evening so I'm planning a run then.

My mum is going into hospital again tomorrow for her other knee replacement op.  She sounds very relaxed about it. The kids have made cards and my middle son drew a pic of mum fighting a shark with her 'knee shields'!

Anyway, have a good day all. xx

Again, what's with the finding out on the internet???

Anyway, what started off as a bad day (woken by the dulcit tones of By 'Eck shouting 'F@ck its 7.30' (so only an hour and a half late) has progressed into a completely incompetent government department (is the descriptor really that necessary?) trying to avoid giving me back money by claiming I owe them money.  Which is complete bunk, but it means that I have to go back through 8 years of P11Ds and P60s to find out what they are talking about.
