Sorry JJ, belated happies to you too. I spotted that it was Mick's on Facebook, but that doesn't help me with yours!
ceal, yes 5k is the minimum, and I have mostly done slightly more, especially if out with the club. I know Pammie has done quite a long streak, which may indeed be ongoing, but I'm not sure about continuing it beyond the 50 days, as I can feel it in my legs even with the relatively short distance. However, I was pleased that the 'easy pace' I did yesterday turned out to be 10:17 pace, as my easy pace was definitely slower a few weeks back, and I'd done a handicap run with the club on Monday, which turned out to be 3.66 miles in 34:34, so 9:27 pace.
How many plan to be at Hyde Park, and is it on 28th September? I can see busbar hopes to make it, and gather Mick & ceal will be there.
Dianato answer you question about who will be in the Park. I know MickT is going to try to be there and I believe Pammie and Tracey are coming along too.
Missed MickC's birthday - sorry! - but sounds as though you don't set much store by them anyway. Good that you're feeling so much better, and that Bonnie will also soon be feeling much better. Or anyway, performing better.
Much respect to those running on a daily basis. Don't think I could do that.
Tracey - "girlie" press-ups have proved to be something I can just about cope with, - but definitely not more than 10 at a time, also I suspect I'm not getting nearly as close to the floor as I'm supposed to. How is the shredding going?
Limps ostentatiously into thread(its my ITB you know) to wish JJ many belated happies
Hello tracy and Diana
Sorry been awol working sleeping etc
Happy Birthday to Mick and JJ
I seem to remember some good race results from Ceal and Empty. Have i forgotten anyone Well done to you all

I'll be at lfotm yes on 28th got number the othr day it will be my first outing there since feb
Hi there Hippo seems like old times
Busbar that was an incredible 20 miler well done
Been busy getting the shop ready for a certain Seasonal event. We try not to use the word at work we have an equivalent to a swear box everytime the word is mentioned it costs us 20p. Could add up
Hi there Hippo....if you're still there . How is our marathon queen?
Mick6,Looks like the anti-biotics are doing their stuff. Hope you can make it for the LFOTM. Not that I shall be there, and btw you are the only one I haven't met so far. Maybe one day I shall see you. Many happies for your birthday too!
JJ,And a very happy birthday to you sir, if I'm not too late.
Pleasant day for running but the wind was a bit naughty, on 4th mile blowing across the lake it gave a strong cross-wind.0.7 mile warmup. 4 steady miles gradually building pace. Laps....11.15, 10.14, 9.54, 9.36.A soft short run Friday bearing in mind the Shef 10k this weekend.
Impey-Nice progressive run there
Mick6-Sorry i didn't realise it was your birthday as well.Happy birthday
Many thanks for all the birthday greetings. I reckon the best part was still be able to get out and run even though I'm a bit over 40 now. There was too much going on trying to manage the domestic work in progress to allow much celebration but MrsJJ and me managed lunch out today.CealFamily are back from Hong Kong and living in Oxford which makes seeing the grandchildren a bit easier and cheaper. They came back a few days before the start of the academic year.MickGood news about the improvement. Long may it last.I'm not racing the LFoTM 5k but I will definitely try and be there to watch the pain and suffering.ImpeyNot a bad run. It augurs quite well for the weekend.BenzHas the limp wrecked your training and racing? Bombay Sapphire can help in these circumstances although it has been known to make some people limp who previously had no such problem.JJ
Think I'd better hide.
JJ - think you'd better even if it's your birthday, or was, glad you had a good one.
Same to Mick - glad you enjoyed yours too.
Hi Hipps - hope you get over your injury quickly.
Busbar - respect - impressive training.
Ceal - Auckland marathon 28th October, but I'm not even thinking about that at the moment - still in recovery mode, though ran 6 miles with my Ironman friend yesterday, she's off to Kona again next week.
Then came home and did a big sort out in the garage with daughter and son. Grand-daughter no3 got a bit "past it", so I took her for a walk in the pushchair with Mae. Very tired last night, son bought takeaways!
LFOM startline is looking very good, I think JJ is going to enjoy it the most
NZCIf you're an experienced garage sorter I need your help.JJ
Belated bird-day greetings to Mick6 & JJ. Given up counting yet, either of you? The maths gets harder year on year, something plus one isn't it? Maybe I'll try again next year.
NZC Can't help thinking the dog would've been better off walking
Benz I hadn't missed the wanderer's return, or is it just a flying visit? How many Ms have you done now? If it's not a rude question and especially not a rude answer. I've done 3 and plan the 4th in 2015, but you don't want to know that. Nice to hear from you though, but sorry it's a limpy visit. Impey's comment about not having met Mick6 reminded me that I still haven't met you, but hope to someday. Bestist!
aws - you know what I meant
Hello all,Thanks for the birthday wishes, 66 is a nice age, I'll now feel I can legitably be retired, no guilt. Flight is not until nearly midnight so lots of time to pack and do a workout.
Busbar,I will definitely be there for LFOTM on the 28th. I am even registered. I am also going to the Spurs vs QPR game
Impey,I think I have met most people on this thread apart from you and NZC. This will be my fourth LFOTM so I am begining to feel like a regular. Really looking forward to meeting some of you again.
The antibiotics have really made an impact, my energy level is back up to normal, I even slept through the night without having to pee.
I did a 5 x 400 yesterday. the times were slow but I could have done more and faster so very pleased with that.

Despite the lack of speed I am pleased with my cadence.
Mick-Good you are feeling slightly better and hope you enjoy spurs gameMick dont think those400s were slow,but your hr readings suggest you have a lot more faster reps in you.
MickC - my OH and 3 sons all support QPR.
Your run yesterday looks rather like mine today in terms of number and distance of intervals, though not in terms of time/speed.
5 x .19 mile. In terms of minute miling, 9:42, 10:06, 9:52, 10:12, 9:40.
JJ - I have led such a sheltered life, I had to google Bombay Sapphire.
Mad day today so didn't do the planned run. Guess there's always tomorrow.ColumbaI suppose you mean that I've led an unsheltered life 'cos I knew Bombay Sapphire?Benz is/was a fan of Bombay Sapphire.MickI agree with Busbar about those reps. Not slow and enough left in the tank.awsOver-40 is accurate enough for me. I can add a year and not change the answer.JJ
Got rid of the tiler today. He was on a daily rate of pay and not spending enough time working.
