Slowkoala - that's a pricey fee. As you only want it should it be too bad to run you might be better paying by session.
I only pay £12 a month to a small gym as I joined as part of a government scheme to get folks off the sofa and leading a fitter lifestyle...it was first come first serve so the fact I'm a marathon runner was irrelevant. Anyway at £12 a month I don't feel so guilty when I don't go there.
Emmy - sometimes you just have to ditch a run if conditions are too bad.
Re your Xmas name, I have visions of you doing all your runs wearing a pair of antlers
Slowkoala - I doubt FF will do a deal they want folk to sign up, paying by DD on a rolling membership which in some gyms can be difficult to get out of.
Very cold and frosty this morning, I hate this weather.
@Shades - I'm with you on that one. I'm going to try and work from home to get a run in at lunchtime (when it should be the warmest time of the day). It's an icerink out there at the moment and i'm scared of getting an injury.
You mention me wearing antlers... for the enigma christmas marathon -i'll be dressed up as a christmas tree
Emmy - LOL at the Xmas tree outfit.
Big G - nice avatar.
I've logged my miles on the RW/Fetch Challenge, have you joined?
Big G - this is the thread http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/forum/general-running/rw-v-fetch-june-running-challenge/193076-54.html
post on there and they'll give you the link to the mileage log...it's on my PC at home.
We try to beat those Fetchies each month, although I've dropped out for the past few months but when you're doing a streak it's an added incentive knowing you have to log your mileage daily.
Hi Shades, thanks for sending me your plan and following this up with specific pace plans for me. I've just reformatted the spreadsheet to make it fit my fridge - and I'm really looking forward to working the plan. I'll start it next week as I'll lose a week when skiing and want to do all 18 weeks.
A quick question, I have 2 HMs lined up for 2013 that coincide with the Sunday Long 20 milers in Feb and March, how should I mod the plan? Switch the 2 x 14 milers for the 20s to enusre I keep the mileage up? Or increase mileage across all Sunday runs to accomodate the reduction (of the 2 races?)
RR - It is important that you do some long runs of 20 miles, it's a significant distance, physically and mentally will prepare you for the marathon
If you are doing Level 1 then swop the step back weeks, the 14 milers for the 20 milers. If you are doing Level 2 you only need to do this with one of the runs as there is a long run of 22 miles, so missing one 20 miler won 't have such a impact on your training. A half marathon is equivalent roughly to a 15 or 16 mile long run in the effort required.
Wild and windy today, not very pleasant but better than tha nasty ice and frost.
I found Kettlecise tough last night, VR was flinging an 8kg kettlebell around, I'm still on a 4kg. Since I dropped to only one session a week I've really noticed a decline in my fitness...extra sessions already booked for the next few weeks
Thanks Shades, it is Level 2, so I'll swap a 14 with the 20 (that coincides with the HM) to keep my mileage up. Many thanks...

Emmy - I just heard on the radio that you had heavy snow over there and UK flights are affected. I can't run comfortably in the cold and ice either, makes me tense my muscles
Re Kettlecise, I did but has worn off a bit when I dropped to one session a week. Next week I have 2 Kettlecise sessions and one Supertone.
In the new year they're starting this http://www.venningfitness.co.uk/what-we-offer/bokwa-is-coming/
looks like fun
Ballycotton 10 online entries open today!!! fingers crossed!
did intervals last night.. 10 * 1 min with alternating rests of 30seconds/1 min.. got up to 15.5 on the treadmill !!
I was gearing myself up for a squashed dog under a car ending Big G!! Phew.Poor labrador They do like their food!
I think I'm paying for lifting a heavier weight last night at Kettlecise. I tweaked my back dancing first thing with the radio on. Damn.
Emmy - Cant you put a pic on here of the snowy scene?
VR - I tweaked my back too last night but don't have the heavier weight excuse! Is OK but was sore by end of my run
Big G - I feel for the overweight labrador
