by'eck ... I'm assuming this isn't on a treadmill with the lights off.  Really pleased to hear Moo is showing signs of improvement.  Bless you both.

Nope, on country roads. Mr by eck made me a cup of peppermint tea and fetch a mini roll from my parents.

Great running Byeck!

*pops head in* HIYA sorry but I will be back very soon. I am nearly sorted with my stuff for now.

Mr By Eck, thanks for the offer of help but it's okay ta. I have some good legal help. I do need a training course though as I am out of my depth.

Hope everyone is okay. I managed 6.6 with my friend today which was lovely but we got soaked.

Morning all

Now converged with the official Two Oceans training plan; just over 6 weeks to go.  Not feeling particularly confident so I have just decided to follow the plan, relax, and do as well as I can on the day - just enjoy the scenery and the atmosphere.  So yesterday was a short easy run and a circuits session, and today was a long(ish) run of 20k, at slow paces.   Legs feeling a bit leaden, probably still due to the racing on the wekend.  I consoled myself with coffee and carrot cake.

Flying to UK tomorrow to settle my cat with friends until I move properly - so I'll be enjoying the weather with you for a week .  Going to try to do a parkrun while I am there.

I've never run with a head torch - I would have thought it could make you queasy with the light jiggling around?

Great...more bloomin' snow...

Ah Louise, please do ensure you have cold/wet gear. The weather isn't great at the moment! In fact we have 4inches of snow. Except for the place where is has turned to 4 inches of slush!

I have just run 5 miles in it though

Hi Ecky *waves*

Afternoon all!

Chili - well done on your snowy run.

Tom - How's you?

Back at school and just been given our 2nd term calendars.  I'll be here at least 9 Saturdays this term.

Louise - enjoy your visit to blighty. Miss the old place.....Where are you from? I'm a Londoner but parents live on the Isle of Wight now.

Have a good day everybody! x

Louise I love my headtorch. I don't get queasy, but it is deceptive. You have no idea how far something is, and that includes how long or high the hill is.
A bit of snow here but that wasn't even nearly forecast.

On Tennyson Down on the Isle of Wight, summer 2012.

Hun, when I said that I would like to buy you more pretty shoes, trainers is not exactly what I had in mind...

Managed 5k (well a little bit over) in one single stint yesterday, no break, no slowing down.  Well, nearly.  3.8k in to the run, I dislodged the emergency stop cord, making me come to a halt pretty damn quickly without know what was goin on.  So about 10 (maybe less) seconds of nothing, then back on it.  9kph solid, so about 34 minutes.

And I wasn't begging to stop at the end, but I had to go home to get lunch.  Perhaps see how far I can get next time, or up the pace a bit?

Jude, that's a lovely picture. Lots of happy memories I am sure.

byeck-Well done on your night time run- very dedicated as to how awful the weather was yesterday.

Mr byeck-Well done on your 5k -definetly progress. How is the weight loss going?

Jude-Nice picture.Shame you have to work on so many saturdays.

No running today- weill go long tomorrow. Not sure how far but certainly in the region of 13-14 as I could be doing another 16 miler with my club on Friday.

Just realised that last week I ran just over 42 miles - frustartingly .2 miles off my most miles ever!!!

Yo-yoing between 88.5 and 89kg AF.  Got down to 88.5 for Saturday morning (would have been 88.2 if I had avoided breakfast for about an hour or so ).  But then was back up at 88.9 this morning (what it was on Thursday of last week).  Think that the weekend does me no favours as its harder to regulate my calorie intake by routine, and more calorfic things living around me.

Congrats on your 42 miles.  That would get me to the doorstep of suburban London, so well over half my journey into work.  Just probably not in time to get there for opening time.

By all means Lou.  Shall we discuss payment in private?


Sorry, you didn't think that I gave shoes to my wife for free?
