Thanks everyone. It was specially hard as I had no idea until our regimental dinner night on Saturday night - I was looking for her in the sherry reception as she always attended them, but couldnt find her.

Then when we went down to dinner, instead of sitting down, the C.O. said, "Ladies and gentlemen of the mess: it is my sad duty to inform you of the death of ... " etc. Not a nice way to find out - I'd head a guy called Rich say something before but didnt realise what he was on about.

She wasn't a super fast runner, but when she ran with work she tried her hardest, as we all should do. :)

Finally, any of you Manchester lot, if you are in the area and have time to go to the Cheshire Cat pub in Fallowfield (the one that's a converted church), you can see the floral tributes and - if it's still there - a photo of her and her friend (Ruth is the one on the right).

sorry for making this a rather morose thread, but hell, if any of you lot want to stay up til 5 past midnight to post a more cheerful one, be my guest (except for mr. godzilla .. i'll take you on any day pal ;) ;) )

Psi, really sorry to hear about your friend, what an awful way to find out. You must have been shocked.

It does us all good to get things into perspective sometimes.

Why: club session, coach was late so I sneaked into the slow-middling group where I belong.
Last hard: tonight, but i think I could have worked harder.
Last rest: Fri.

Godzilla, don't leave it 'til xmas, someone recommended flashing armbands from bike shops, only £8.95, and they really improve your visibility.

Tonight in the car I met group of runners along pitch black lane, they were wearing head torches as well - these are probably the best thing if you run where it's really dark.

Psi - sorry to hear your news :o(

Did about 6 miles around the local streets. Didn't plan the route, just went out and ran, which was really nice! Part of the route was across the local park in the dark, which wasn't a good idea as there was a gate half way across to keep out cars, and I didn't see it until I was right on top of it!

Dead chuffed after yesterday's run that I was recovered so well too.

Last Hard: Wednesday
Last Rest: Friday

Sad news Psi.

Rest day (apart from 2 brisk walks with dogs)for me today, as always on Monday. Ensures I'm well keyed up for my gym session tomorrow.
