Glad to hear that you're home OH.

DD - that ride sounds good - did you do it last year?

Straycelt - don't suppose you're running Brass Monkey in January are you? I'd love a sub 1.40 pacer!

Dustin - just keep it easy with that hammy.

Enjoy the club runs everyone. Mine runs track on a Wednesday, but I seem to break every time I join them, and round the streets on a Friday but as I can usually fit my runs in during the daylight I've only ever been once.

Goes to check out Brass Monkey, doesn't like the sound of it but gets LMH's drift. I'll keep you posted. Off to recover from Power Plate

Hello

OH oh no.  Glad you've been let out though and hope you keep mending.

Why: working too long, and need a rest day anyway.
aching a lot from my fall but don't seem to have done any proper damage

Have a good one all

13/11/2012 at 19:00

Reports back that Brass Monkey is full and tis in Yorkshire, quite some way from SEWales...HmmmLMH need to find something nearer...Tewkesbury, Worcester?

13/11/2012 at 19:46

It's flat and fast and my PB course though Straycelt  I can only really target running races outside of the tri season but am running VLM again next year so may be able to fit something in before that when I'll have a chance of being on good running form. Any suggestions?

Good news about the lack of damage emzap.

Getting busy at work Pammie?

Talking of suggestions - time to put together a xmas list - any good book recommendations?

13/11/2012 at 19:52

Phew!! Just back from my club night, got put in with the fastest lads, we did Thursdays hilly course backwards with an extra 3/4 mile thrown in for good measure...
Didn't notice how many down hill sections there were on Thursday, but I'll definitely remember them backwards!!
7:15 minute miles was pretty tough for me as well, how some of them lads can have a natter at that speed running up hill is beyond me!

Ale - there is also a good book by Lopez Lomong Running for my life - is a good read and one of the missing boys from Sudan area fro the civil war and how he sees Michael Johnson running in the Olympics on a TV in farm house when in refugee camp and says he wants to do the same......BTW love the books and wine together....

Dustin - You have a message waiting for you, likewise he was in our pics...

What - 6.14m with 4 x 5 mins (.80m, .80m, .81m, .81m) with 60 sec rec.
Why - Last hard session before Gosport 1/2 on Sunday
Last hard - Today
Last Rest - On the massage table earlier... BLISS with the odd yelp

Take care

Club night was a blast - 8 x 400m stretches run hard up and down the road. Feeling a bit heavy legged on the warm up so decided to not to hammer it. Thing is when you're surrounded by runners your natural instincts take over.....easy day tomorrow.
