If I do a marathon I suspectr it will be either off road or Autumn...
Yesterday's lyrics were Deadlines and Commitments by The Killers.
I must admit Dustin - I'm getting very used to not having to get up of a morning. Next Wednesday is going to be a shock to the system.
What: LSRWhy: time, opportunity and weatherLast hard: thinking o a (hopefully) not flooded routeLast rest: 22/12Lyrics - yes.
Dark and damp, but not raining. Yet.
What: funeral then drive to Chester then to East Midlands. May need a walk afterwards!Why: running friend of 40 years, mum from brother's to home, etc
Good to see you Davey: stick around!
Alehouse - I was too optimistic in my earlier post - persistent heavy rain here. Hope the funeral goes as well as possible. Drive safely.

Still got cold,so nothing bar walking Geordie.
What: possibly run this afternoonWhy: In at work but unexpected half day today. JS group may not happen this evening. Dry at pressent.Last rest : XmasLyrics: noAle - hope today's not too arduous
Travel day for me today so no running - train from Darlington to London this morning before heading back to Guildford later. Weather in London wet!
Alehouse - hope funeral is fitting send off for your friend.
Little M.iss Happy - target this spring is Brighton Marathon and to run it under 4hrs (anything between 3.5 - 4hrs target)
Back out running tomorrow!
Will that be your first marathon Davey?
Unexpected half days are great OH!
As I stepped out of the door for my run, wondering if I could hold out and do enough miles to justify calling it a LSR the rain stopped so I took it as a sign and did 20 - will ease back on the longer stuff now until after Brass, need to find some speed from somewhere in the next three weeks without breaking myself.
Nice one, LMHHi and welcome Davey_PHope everyone had a good Christmas. Another mince pie, anyone ?I have to work today and tomorrow so I know all about shocking the system, Dustin .

What 8 commuteWhy time to stop messing about and knuckle downLyrics no
Now that the madness of Christmas is over its time to get serious. Acquired P&D and The Lore of Running for Christmas for a bit of light reading between now and Easter.
Much alcohol consumed, many calories devoured, all waist bands have shrunk.
Following the DOMS that I got as a Christmas present for not running on a regular basis, I scaled back my ambitions. The Boxing Day 20, which was my usual penury got replaced by the Tri Club Boxing Day Bimble. It was very pleasant, only 9.5 miles, and at nothing more than 9m/m. This was the first time that I'd been out with them and there was the classic comment that I ran better than I swam. That's not hard. Even as rough as I am, 9m/m is the slowest I've been for ages.
Today, assembled the new Chrissy Pressie, and did 45 minutes on the turbo-torture-trainer. I have also taken both of the children's broken DVD players and made one that works. A feature film is a good length training session.
