Big efforts Gobi and Pizza Man.

Nrg-b - totally agree, knowing the people on the training forum watching out for you helps when the going gets tough. Certainly helped me in my last 3 marathons!

What: 6 miles easy - chest still a little tight, had 3 layers on top, cap but still shorts. It was drizzling but I was wrapped up warm enough - saw 70 year old runner cruising along - now that is a sight I love to see.

Morning peeps.

Early morning run due to it being so hot during the night, wakened when milkman arrived, so got up and went out and it's warm already.

Decent enough run, considering !

Ultra: Good lyrics,again.

All the best to those doing the IM. Respect.

I am another who won't be doing Comrades next year, though there's more chance of me doing it, than doing an IM !

Interesting mens fashion discussion yesterday.

Working in the centre of Glasgow you do see some sights....

Well off for my weigh in soon.

Have a good one peeps. Stay cool.

Last night "I ain't gonna play" ended up with 14 x half miles in 2.45 off 1 min recovery - we found some shade and a bit of a breeze which helped a lot. Felt like I ate my own weight in insects so plenty of protine available :0)

Last rest: 31 days I think

Have a goodly day.

Sitting here in SA we are just more than half way through winter and cannot handle the cold any longer. I had to smile yesterday reading that some of the regulars want the cold weather back. Well as hard as you are wishing the cold back I know that I am wishing summer back, bring on the heat.
Still no running for me. Will be starting in about 10 days and then it is full steam ahead. Glad to see the list of Comrades is growing.

K9 – still not giving up on you and THANKS.

Debo – Good luck with the race
19/07/2006 at 06:48

What: - 7.5 miles steady with 4.2 miles in the middle at 7:20 pace, felt comfy

Beautiful out there - glorious sunrise over misty lake. Although it has yet to warm up, it is quite muggy and I still sweated out 1.5 litres in the run.
19/07/2006 at 07:11

today's run done early as tonight will be too hot. just 15mins, but that will do for the time being.

Good luck wishes to the forum IM peeps, Melissa, Melifera and debbo.
