Jude, you must be so proud of your talented children.

Franny great result!

I finished my event - met the cut off with a couple (but only a couple) of minutes (6:58:12, so just under 7 minutes) to spare so delighted and very happy, and sore all over.

Afternoon All

Just back from the park with the kids. It's bl00dy cold but we had ice creams anyway cus the sun was out at least! yay!

Louise, well done you should be proud of yourself!!

MC, I don't know where you get the energy to do all that lot! Its like a tri every day isnt it?!

Franny, Well done! What was the time? Remind me how slow I am lol

Hi Jude, Chili, LLB n Boss

I'm still a bit sore from the measly 3 miles I did on Wed, which was the first run since the 10k in Hanoi. Although dont remember feeling this bad after that. Might go out later this evening cus it's a family day tomorrow at the out laws. Most family members have had their presents from 'nam, but my brother in law hasnt had his 'Keep your hand on your Dong..' t-shirt yet!

Hi all!

Louise - well done to you!Pleased you had fun!

Hi Matt! Naughty! Good to have you back. Hope you get out for a run later.

Franny - well done on your parkrun.

MC - well done on all your exercise today.

Hi Loula, By'eck, Chili, AF and all other friends!

Well, daughter's time was finalised from yesterday and she definitely came second not third. Plus today she came first in the 400m Freestyle. 5:11 - 16 lengths. (No medals for this competition though as it's just about qualifying for the nationals)

Tomorrow 2 more races....

No run for me yet this weekend but I live in hope, lol!


30/03/2013 at 16:58

Hi Everyone,

Louise-Well done. Nearly 7 hours of running what a star.  

Franny-22 years. Mr Franny is a lucky man! I have just beeen married to Mrs AF III for 8 years which is  anew record for me!! Well done on park run.

Jude-Well done tyo your daughter. She is a real star.   

Loula-I see that your behaviour is slipping down to Littlehampton levels AGAIN!!!

Might have a 2nd day in a row off from running as I feel rally tired at the moment.I keep on waking up at about 5-6 am & the 1st thing that I think of is the Marathon & what time i should be aiming for!!!

Matt-I think that you are a bad influen on Loula! p.s can we have some nice pictures please?

AF..you are on taper now so feel free to rest and listen to your body..you have put it through tough miles  and it needs a wee beer...go on...you have done the hard work..RELAX now and get to the start line

Jude..well done for your girl..that is fantastic.

Loula ..tut tut

Matt..You will be racking up the miles in no time..a few months back I did not think i would be running the mileage i am now.

Have a good evening everyone

Well done you your parkrun Franny! I was race director this morning but all four of my girls ran. Big girl took Smidge and they only managed 1 lap but that is pretty go for my little 'un. No.3 girl decided that she wanted McD and the only way she could do that was to run the whole 5k and get a PB, so she did! Little minx. It's only her 3rd time running the whole way but I've told her I expect her to do it every month now.

Louise - well done! Congratulations!

Jude - massive well done to your Elif.

Great to hear you are running again Matt

MC - well, when I say nice family time I ummm..... yeah I know exactly what you mean. With the weather so cold I thought I'd do some desperately needed DIY. The girls were excited, but soon got bored when they realised I wasn't going to play with/entertain them. Big girl enjoyed helping paint her bedroom although she didn't realise it would take so long. I'm just pleased that they are now all asleep!

Easter tomorrow Got a family service with a child dedication. Lots of guests. And my parents are arriving for the day.

30/03/2013 at 23:01

LLB, lol I've never seen his dong He can see mine. I've still got some left, un-spent, as it were!

Jude, I hope you get a run in! Sounds like you've been doing lots for others and need some me time!

AF, LOL woh woh woh. Hold the phone. Me? a bad influence on LLB?! She started it. Anyway, Franny as usual is correct. From personal experience, I did 2 runs in the last 3 weeks running up to Abo and still had enough in the tank, so dont worry about it now, you've done the hard work, you'll do fine dude.

Franny, Thats a cracking time! And being as mine is 25.34, I might just have to aim for yours! Might take a while though, by current standings..

Chili, must be great to see all your girls running round togeather. I did laugh at the McD thing. Sounds like youve got a busy day tomorrow, hope it goes well

30/03/2013 at 23:07

Boss I think there's something wrong with the website, I can't upload any pics. Which is a real shame, I'd found some very tasteful ones of Ms Pendleton and Keri-Anne Payne! Gotta be sports women see, as we're in the business of being runners n all

31/03/2013 at 09:00

Morning and Happy Easter.

A* for effort Matt!!!!!

Am resting today & will do a few miles tomorrow. My plan is to keep my mileage to about 25 this week.

2 weeks time from now - I am off!!!! Scarey! 

31/03/2013 at 09:16



AF..enjoy your running rest day.......golly only 2 weeks away..that means I will be racing then too...yikes!!!! it all creeps up on you ...my rock and roll number arrived in the post yesterday

Matt..thank you..it just felt like a good day for running yesterday and am pleased with the time as I haven't been doing any speedy work. My aim is to beat my Parkrun PB of 23.47 which I did in October 2010... once my marthon is out the way in May.
