I will also have to listen to your tune DJ. May the God of peace be with you and your family. And I hope you manage to get out for your run this weekend.

Byeck - lunch and cakes and friends are very important. Glad you had a nice time. Has Moo eaten today?

I did my 10 miles Am very pleased because it's been quite a few weeks since I last did that kind of distance.

So, we need to get a bit organised and make a list of this years events so we know what the CRAC team are doing. Events are classed as races, big planned trips, or a real chalenge. Can be any distance, time etc. And we will do the next 6 months.



25/26 Chilibean - 100 mile Cycle to Cambridge & Back over 2 days

6 Chilibean - 5k Radlett Rotary Run leading Rosedale Runners

2 Chilibean - Half Iroman Outlaw Triathlon


If you are not sure how to copy, paste and add to the list just let me know your dates and I'll add you on.

Hi all

Sorry not been on for a bit but had to sort stuff out for meeting on Weds. Im am going Oooop North for the day.

D.J, I was thinking about you on Thurs.

I will have to sort my list out as I have a few coming up but not sure of dates.

March. Fradley 10k

April, London.

Wow Loula your races are Mahoosive.

No running for me today as Little Ecky had an inset day. I took him into town and as we were coming out of Greggs we were pounced on by a policeman and a Truant officer. I was okay as I know they are only doing their job. I did say to the Policeman that I dreaded taking my kids to town on training days as they seem to be different from the rest of the local schools and so it does look like they are skiving. I always seem to get looks of disgust as if I am a terrible parent, spesh if its the girls.

Wow what a lot of races we are doing. I will get the list for League races soon so will post them.

 Running for me this morning but I have a bit of a cold again so will take it easy. Marathon training is not going as planned so just doing what I can.

02/02/2013 at 08:46

morning- wow MC, you have a lot going on!!

 and chili- some massive bike rides!! impressive stuff from you guys!

02/02/2013 at 11:12

loula - yeah, but I need to be able to run!! well, can always walk the run stage of the triathlons...

anyway, just back from the gym, did 30mins of walk 2/run 2 and felt better today, calves achy but I think I wasn't on my toes as much as the other day. Thought I better stop after 30mins though and not push it. So did 40mins on the bike, 10mins, rower (had to stop it there because someone with really strong perfume came onto the rower next to me and made me feel ) and some weights. Good way to start the weekend

going to make some bread now to have with some homemade soup for lunch

02/02/2013 at 12:49

Well donbe on the Gym Mathschick. Mmmmmm homemade soup and fresh bread sounds good.

I just managed 4 miles which I'm pleased with as Im running at 10 min miles again. I have lost 1st 3lb since Abo and have stopped losing weight now as I feel great. I just need to up the miles after a training blip. One of my running club teamies has suggested a longer run tomorrow morning as our season starts up again in April.

02/02/2013 at 14:28

Hi Franny, well done on your run yesterday and Thanks. I just seemed to put it on so easily. I have to be careful now though as I will be doing high mileage.

02/02/2013 at 14:56

Hi all!

Ecky - well don on your weight loss and 10 minute miles.

Franny - well done on your run yesterday.

MC - well done on your gym session.

And...Well done to all of you on your racing committments! I'm not coming to England this year because of lack of funds so I'm really restricted with races. There is the usual 15K here in Bursa sometime in April and the Istanbul marathon/15Km in November which I pulled out of last year. I'll see how things go.... but I probably won't enter if I'm only running once a week because it is a bit demoralizing!!

I've been out of action again for the last couple of days with the snuffles but am hoping for a run tomorrow.  Met a friend for breakfast yesterday and another friend while kids were swimming in the evening which was lovely. No cake but lots of homemade börek (savoury pastries).

Just done piano lessons and planning a game of RISK this evening coz the kids love it.

BFN xx

That's what happens when you take a break...

I had a week out because of that virus, then another week where my motivation went missing.  Finally got out there yesterday and I was fatigued after fifteen minutes.  Not my legs: they were fine, no - my CV system was struggling.  Still managed to get to the end of the route so 4.1km all told, but it was a real struggle.

Getting some dumbells soon.  They have a greater range of motion than machines and are supposed to be better at working individual muscles (like biceps), and as a bonus I should be able to fit the weights to the Total Trainer for tougher leg exercises.

Resting up today.

Some good races lined up. Well done on all of those who ran this weekend.

Franny- You never know I may do the Edinburgh 1/2 in 2014 as Mrs AF and I are planning to go to Edinburgh for 3-4 nights to celebrate my big 50.Will probably go over the Easter holidays.  Do you live in Edinurgh can't remember? Any recommendations for decent hotels?

02/02/2013 at 16:51

Aw Jude..hope you feel better soon.

RR..your cv fitness will return in no time at all

AF...yes it is Edinburgh I live There are hotels on the High Street which is right in the thick of it all....The Radison Blue in the Royal mile or Apex in the grassmarket. Depends what you are looking at price wise.Balmoral on princes street and The Caledonian if you really want to pussh the boat outThat would be good and am sure you would enjoy it..the Rock and Roll half is usually April and takes you around the city where as the the other half which is on same day as the marathon is not so city orientated.  I loved the rock and roll half last year
