Nessie, there was so much snow on Ben Nevis that Mountain Rescue wouldn't let us go to the summit. Which is why we ended up taking a scenic route back to Fort William involving a stile with a muddy puddle at the bottom that I thought I could jump over only to discover that my boots had more lateral movement then I'd expected.

Kevin was very disappointed and I've promised her that we'll try again in May.

Yes, Laura, I've missed you all. Got lots of work done, though.

What: am - swim, pm club run, prob 5-6 miles
Why: trying to get better at swimming, managed 6 lengths front crawl then reverted to breast stroke for the rest. Last nights session with the juniors wasn't too taxing so should manage a decent run tonight
Last hard day: Sun
Last rest day: Mon

I neeeeeeed a holiday. Missed the forum thread as been in Zurich for the last two days. Haven't had any holidays since the beginning of July and two marathons in October have left me feeling exceedingly jaded. Four weeks of my annual leave left to take before Christmas - but no chance to take it..........bum!

What: Have a good gripe and then maybe five steady.
Why: Tired, tired tired.
Last hard day: Over a week ago
Last rest day: Yesterday (enforced)

Martin work is something you do to live not live to do – take some time off

WildWill - you're dead right, one of my favorite phrases is:

Nobody on their death-bed ever said "I wish I'd spent more time in the office"

Actually I plan a week this month and then three weeks over Christmas - and I can't wait!

OK, more serious mode now.

Sorry to hear about your injuries folks. Take it easy. Vrap - next time can you please arrange for a locum to take your place on the forum - you think it's a coincidence so many injuries have appeared on your first day back? Sorry Ben Nevis was snowed under, great to hear of a teenager moaning 'cause they couldn't get to the top of a mountain...
What: 6 m iles easy
Why: supposed to be marathon pace but died half way around, then remembered I hadn't eaten or drunk since 8 o' clock this am. Well, that's my excuse anyway.
