Hi folks. Just back from a w/e at my mum's.  Not sure about this ' running in the countryside' malarkey. Well its only just outside London, but very few streetlights, and very few pavements.   I didn't want to run off road this w/e, partly because it would have been really muddy, and partly cos I wanted a more marathon specific long run, so that made for a couple of 'interesting' excusions - On Saturday evening in pouring rain and pitch dark by the time I was finishing,  having to run as near the edge of the road as poss whenever a car approached which meant splashing throught he rainwatere pouring down the gutter, and then yesterday on my 20ml route one busy main road which I assumed would have a pavement didn't, so only about 2mls along it but a bit scarey running towards cars racing along at 70mph++.  Back to civilization of lights and pavements now.

I've glanced back so apologies for anything vital I've missed, but

Gobi, well done on the PB and happy birthday

And Wabo, a PB, too

Scobos, I didn't have you down as someone who would be put off by a bit of weather,!

NZC, Podro, Tipptop our Vets T&F league always have the 800m and 3000 m on the same evening, then 400 & 1500m the alternate month.  Of course it isn't compulsory to do them both !  ... or at least it wouldn't be if the club had a few more runners

What: 4ml easy
Why;  a recovery day before a mega week

Evening all.

What:  3 miles easy
Why:  2 seemed OK a couple of days ago.

So that will be 4 on Wednesday, and about 30 on Christmas day...
