Ok phone messed up and for some reason replaced my lyrics with some random text! Sorry about that ...anyway they are as above!
06/12/2012 at 06:04


What:4M Steadily and carefully on snow.

Yesterdays lyrics: 'Don't stand so close to me' by The Police. Great song and band. In my humble opinion. If we had them recently apologise,had a list of songs I'd started DT with, but lost it.

Blisters : Thats is some coincidence

Dustin: No I've not got Garmin etc either.Run by how I feel or my old faithful  Timex Ironman stopwatch if doing reps.

ale: Good news.

Tom: Yeah Dixon of Dock Green will be along to check the threads lyrics  from now on. Younger viewers Google Dixon of Dock Green

Thanks Blisters - it's my first ever go at xmas cake baking and icing and I have the added pressure of making one for my in-laws. I shall see how I get on with a smooth finish but suspect I'll end up with a snow effect. Still, it should taste the same.

Snow forecast for us today - though only a light dusting. Cold this morning though - still minus temperatures until around midday, just hope it's not too slippy as I intend to run once my porridge has digested slightly - need to make the room as having a xmas lunch today.

What:            MLR
Why:              time and will
Last hard:      2/12
Last rest:       1/12

Lyrics - not a scooby.

Cold rain on ice this morning

What: run this evening (although weather not great and still have remnants of cold)
Why: Thursday
Last Hard: Sunday
Last rest: yesterday
Lyrics: not sure even which are the lyrics

06/12/2012 at 10:56
Evening all! (for lovers of Dock Green). Yesterday 'policing the lyrics" comment was as was spotted a poor attempt at a pun!. Today's lyrics - no idea.

Current running is laps of a small North London Park - each lap is 0.85M and I was hoping to add an extra lap this morning to get up to 6.6M overall, but hamstring was feeling rather more uncomfortable at 5M than i would have liked. Ended up with 5.8M, same as yesterday.

I'm an occasional Garmin user, but for general running to time rather than distance I use my trusty analogue wristwatch.

Morning all. Feeling good after that 4mile tempo last night. Out in the cold working today, nice bit of SWA on a crisp morning. 7miles tonight at 8min/mile maybe go further if I can as I doubt I'll get a LSR in this weekend cause I'm working.

We seem to have quite a few baking experts on here . I love the cake talk!

Little M.iss Happy wrote (see)

chickadee - emzap is spot on, in my case, brandy.

 sounds like my kinda cake ...  I don't like raisins though. Can you do a fruit cake without raisins?

alehouse wrote (see)

Emzap:  do they have proper medics in Germany?

definitely do, alehouse. German healthcare is top notch - but it comes at a price. I know many people moaned about the NHS but I always found it a fair system. A small contribution -- a basic service for everyone. Us Germans have to fork out about 15% of our salary just to cover our healthcare...

Lots of snow overnight. Looking forward to a run later. Will leave work soon (rough night with mum in hospital - she collapsed in the sauna and ended up with a huge gash on her head that needed stitching. She's fine now but it threw me a bit).

Chick:  sorry to hear about your mum...hope she is OK. Do you know the lyrics today? Was not unrelated to my comment to Emzap (assuming I'm right!).

Talking of cake, the barmaid at my local had obviously thought that I was a little down in the dumps when I spoke to her last week: last night she had very knidly made me a box of flapjack. Really nice, and really nice!

06/12/2012 at 13:22

afternoon all

chickadee, poor mum, hope she is ok. agree re nhs, my daughter has to pay for everything in Peru (well mum bank does)

Anyone know about sizing for minimalist shoes? Have run in Nike Free and about to step into some vibrobarefoot. Do people still step up a half size or not?

06/12/2012 at 15:50


What 7.7 with hill
Why Not enough time to walk home after work.
Lyrics ashamedly yes

Missed my run yesterday due to snow and the ice this morning wasn't much better either. Due to the current busy period I am unable to run commute so distances will be curtailed until after Christmas, normally I don't run in December anyway.

Have entered Wokingham Half as my warm uprace again this season. Have done it twice before and is my pb course for the half.

06/12/2012 at 17:03

Can't help I'm afraid Straycelt.

Definitely chickadeee - I do an 'exotic fruit' cake with papaya, pineapple etc and never put that awful candied mixed peel in anything, replaced with chopped dates in my xmas cake. If it's just raisins you don't like even easier - extra currants, chopped dates, maybe some chopped apricot. Sorted. Hope your mum is ok.

Alehouse - that's really nice of the barmaid.

Wabo - I had a lovely run thanks. Needed superfurrywarm tights, thermal top, buff, hat and gloves but there was no wind and the ice was obvious enough to avoid. Lunch was the best meal out I have had in years. Can't wait to go back to the restaurant, couldn't fault a thing.

When is Wokingham postie?

Hope you can stay on your feet if you JS tonight OH.

Sounds as though you're enjoying your running sweep.

Good to have another run reported Paddy - have you seen the rubberman yet?

Tom - my hamstring was always worse when it was colder - don't know if that could be a factor with yours?

06/12/2012 at 17:13

Paddy: I am only going to ask her. No harm in that!
And, when, where and what is your "race promotion"?

06/12/2012 at 17:17

Feb 10th but generally fills by Christmas, £20 for a very well organised race.

06/12/2012 at 21:07

Greetings all,

Lyrics - YES

What - 8.3k on the Dreadmill
Why - Wanted a steam room session afterwards so went to the Gym
Last hard - last Sat
Last rest - Mon

Take care
