Khanivore.. enjoy your cake!! you deserve it!

VR - you may not have fully realised it, but you and I crossed paths this morning.  I don't usually run on weekday mornings and when I do, I cross another Trotter/Forumite   In the week I usually run after work, but I got a slow 8 miler in this morning.

I did realise it was you after we passed each other!
I saw the weather forcast and thought it best to do a longish run this morning. 10 mile out and back.
Khanivore! You and your cake! Hope you have a good 18 miler

I do it for ice cream instead

Hi all!

Managed to get over to the UK ok... but had an horrific contact lens trial this morning... my eyes just dont like having it put in there!

@Khanivore - crickey... i never think of long runs for cake... maybe it'd make me quicker? 

@VR - That's a good friday distance!

@Keith - are you all ready for tomorrow's Foxy marathon/ulta?

@Shades - How are you getting on?

@Bootsie - what works for you? Contacts? How do you do it? I've watched countless youtube trials and tried other things but it doesnt seem to work

09/11/2012 at 13:25

lol! i meant the cake thing! not contacts sorry


09/11/2012 at 13:28

Emmy - I'm fine thanks.

Ouch to the contact lens trial.   But they don't suit everyone do they?   I use specs for computer/reading, I'm OK for distance like driving....honest

09/11/2012 at 13:34

@Bootsie - Lol! It's good to see that you're focused on the important thing!

@Shades - Yeah... my eyes are still tender at the moment.... and i'm working this afternoon staring at a computer screen It's good to hear that you're fully recovered from your cold.

during post work drinkies last night I managed to get 10 people to agree to do a 10km in july.. very exciting.. there is a bet on regarding finish times.  Fab to hear so many people enthused though

09/11/2012 at 15:31

Right .. plans for this year race wise

Brighton Half - Feb

Ballycotton 10 - March

Sussex Marathon Living Weekend (Not a real marathon) - May

09/11/2012 at 15:32

oh and Reigate 10km July

09/11/2012 at 16:02

Emmy - stick with the lenses. I remember at first hating them and thinking how can people put up with these but I soon changed my mind. It really does make life a lot easier. I use daily disposables.

Shades - I've never done Berlin, it'll be my second "major"  and just when I thought i was almost half way there to doing all of them - they go and add Tokyo!!!

AND I'm staying with you, VR & Emmy - we can have a porridge party!!

09/11/2012 at 16:06

Thats great news Molly.

09/11/2012 at 16:10
Bootsie I will see you at the Reigate 10k - would be rude to not go as it starts 6 miles from my house lol

You might want to consider the Phoenix Brighton 10k too. That was a good run - pan flat, no cars, there and back along the sea front. Lots of runners and well marshalled with lots of encouragement.

I don't only run for cake you know!
I run for kebabs too

I'll enjoy the porridge party!

@Khanivore - has anyone ever told you that you might have an unhealthy relationship with food?

@Shades -I know this is a little late in the day - but what pace should I stick to tomorrow? 10.45 min miles? or what do you recommend?

09/11/2012 at 16:54

Emmy - repeatedly. I would type more but I am busy eating
