Afternoon all,

C**p day here as well, everyone sick, work deadlines mounting and 238 kids' xmas socials coming up all of which appear to involve me bringing a tray of pizza slices. Whoever said women are good at multi-tasking, I'm not, I just want to go for a run!

Wild Will, I'm not surprised you're not performing to your usual times at the moment, be easy on yourself and you'll make a quick come-back I'm sure.
Witch - festive 4K tempt you on 27/12?

What: whatever I can fit into the 45 min slot left between end of day and beginning of evening.
Why: 'cause I'll turn into even more grumpy witch if I don't get out at all today.
Last hard: still Sunday.
Rest: Monday.

Keep smiling people!

Did a time trial last night even though felt muscle tiredness from Sunday. 2.8 miles in 18:23. Looking forward to seeing if I can get new pb on Sunday for 10k. Present pb=42:47.

Today's training is a gentle swim. In fact the rest of the week is going to be easy.

Evenin' all.

What: Race!
Did my first Woking 3miler (well its 2.85 actually) at lunchtime. Handicap race so I went off 8min30 (based off 19mins for 3 miles).
Gentle loop of Old Woking so I was told,rain held off,but it was that cool,damp climate ideal for running.
Managed to 'reel in' some of those ahead and I think I only got overtaken by one gazelle.
Finished in 18.07 (6m21 miling),11th out of 26 in the handicap,9th fastest overall.

Felt that I could go faster (I run 2-3 miles in the gym near 6min miling) but given I didn't know the route and wanted to enjoy the thing, overall I'm pleased.

Apparently these have been going on for years (first Weds of each month). VERY friendly bunch, and very enjoyable too.
Oh , and its free!

Well done Dustin, and good luck Hilly. Oh, and Laura I know what you mean. Work, making tunics, cakes, work 'dos', more work, oh and work. Then there's the lingering lurgy, about three weeks!
What: nothing. Was going to go out at lunch, but friend's birthday at work (she has three kids under five and work is a holiday for her), and as I've already reported on this forum, her words: 'Running, don't you dare. Not in this rain, and not on my birthday!'
How could I refuse? Nice lunch though.
why: erm, well I think I've covered that
Tomorrow, my birthday (yes, I know I'm mentioning it again!!!) and I intend to start my veteran career with an early morning 10 miler, in rain, hail, snow, whatever....better get to bed...just the Tesco online shopping to do...

5 miles recovery in 35:55.
Nasty chilly NW crosswind along Hoylake promenade. Glad to get it over with.
Broke the Trigons in though. Do I dare use them on Friday's long tempo run??

Tesco on-line! You're lucky. We have to scrape our turnips straight out of the frozen soil around here. Happy birthday for tomorrow Snicks, that makes you Sagittarius doesn't it? er, no that's been done already hasn't it.

Well done on your handicap race Dustin, another 6 min miler to keep us on our toes. What a great idea to organise this at lunchtimes. You have lots of gazelles in Woking then? Obviously more to the South than I give credit for.

Hilly, glad to hear you do take it easy sometimes!

Finally got out for a 4 miler festooned with all manner of blinking lights like father Christmas on a test run; 2 problems with running in the dark - headtorch needs to be perched off the end of my nose to actually light up the bit of ground I'm about to run over, as opposed to 50 mtrs ahead, second, on-coming car headlights have blinding effect cancelling out head torch.

Night all.

PS Mike and others, get your thermals out, the long term weather forecast is for freezing easterly winds for the weekend and beyond.
