By Eck, will be thinking of you too.

Morning Loula and Jude.

No running for me today. I have  to find some time to fit my longest run in today. I am racing next weekend and the weekend after will be my 20 mile race.

I am going to walk round the house with Trev this weekend to get used to the weight.

How much does Trevor weigh?

Thinking of you and Moo today By'eck and hope all goes to plan

Ecky..a 20 miler race is a good training event for the marathon.

Hi Jude...hows you????

Chilli..hope the head feels better today...take care

Its a quiet house up here...Mr Franny went away yesterday for his fishing trip of a lifetime to Kenya...missing him loads already..he is away until next Saturday morning..typicallly when he gets back I will be working...grrrrrrr....I think this is the longest we will have been apart from each other since we got married 9which will be 22 years in April.

Well am sure Chico will keep me busy...lol and my running too...Got 4 miles planned today with erm 4 50-80m strides

Have a good Friday y'allllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll..catchya later

Ecky, I'd suggest wearing a backpack and building up the weight in that for your runs, and also taken Trevor out on longer journeys so you build up time with him.

He only weighs 7lb but he is huge. I need to find something that wont rub when I run with him. I will start trying with a backpack this week. I don't have long but I can always walk some of it if I have to.

Morning Franny, awwwww I bet you will miss Mr Franny. Enjoy your run today.

Morning Chilli, how are you?

01/03/2013 at 09:54

Morning again guys.

Franny - I'm fine thanks! Hoping for a run tomorrow. Probably will only be 4 miles as I'm getting out so infrequently at the mo but it's better than nothing.  That sounds an amazing trip for your hubby. Kenya is beautiful. My sister lived there for 2 years doing VSO and we visited her. Hope the time passes quickly for you. Enjoy your run.

Good morning everyone and happy Friday!!

Jude - I'm good thanks, just glad to be back exercising! I was starting to feel unbelievably unhealthy! How are you keeping?

Thanks AF, how are you? How many miles you racked up so far this year?

Loula - Incredible stuff!! Well done! How were they?? I've just checked when i was last on, November 2011! Where does the time go! No wonder im aching so much from slow 2 mile runs!

01/03/2013 at 13:55


LLB-I am fine and looking forward to a childfree weekend. I am trying not to over do it.

Ecky- I think my training is going well. I have done in consecutive weeks 16,17 & 19 mile long runs. I too am doing a 20 mile race next sunday.That will be my longest distance. It is 4 laps of I suspect a fairly flat route.  

byeck-Hope alll goes well with Moo.

Nandy- I have just calculated that I have run 314.84 miles this year!  

Ran with one of the ladies from the club who is a good runner and is coming back form injury. We took it nice and easy and did 14.7 miles at a 9.20 minute mile pace. It was good to go at a slower pace than what I am used to as I do worry about burning out by going too fast. At least 2 of the ladies I run with are injured at the moment & as I said to the lady, I ran with today I just want to ensure that I am not the only one of my usual group running on 14/4!

Ecky...hope you get out with Trev soon. Yep I will miss him..am missing him.

Franny-Sounds complicated- so you are recaing on Sunday? Need to get my pom poms and mankini out!!

Loula, I am going to do it on Sunday. When are you doing yours?

Boss you are doing well with your training. I am a little behind but not as much as I thought.

Hi Mathschick. I thought about a baby holder but not sure if he would fit as he is quite big. I may have to try one. Glad you are feeling better.

Evening everyone

Lovely to read all the chat. Franny - hope you cope okay without your hubby. It does sound like an amazing trip.

Hope everyone has a great weekend. March events look like this:

10? Eckytump - Fradley 10k
10 AF - Worthing 20
17? Eckytump - 20 miles somewhere
24 Franny - Grangemouth Around the houses 10k
30 Louise - Two Oceans (Cape Town) 56k
