SD - excellent year all round. You must be chuffed to bits all round. How much weight have you lost now?

re: great barrow challenge, will you be chucking in a marathon or 2 next year? I did the 4 maras last year. It's probably easier than the cycling to be honest. Mind you, cycling is my weakness so I would say that....

Evening gang

Recovering from the pirate christmas party so I think its an early night for me !

Hope everyone has had an injury free weekend .. or at least a few hours !!

2st 5lbs. I got to 13st 9lbs. Havent weighed myself for a while but think i'm probably still around 14st.

Great Barrow Challenge, i'm going to do the event by all disciplines. Walking it next year then running it the following year.

The running is probably the easiest because you can run/walk. Marching 26 miles a day will be a killer on the feet.

Evening Melds. Hope you ahd a good time.

Good weekend, Saturday was a write off after my team night out Friday. Normally jave to write off the Sunday as well so quite pleased i was able to do something today.

Had a dodgy cycle today in the slippery stuff. Back wheel took on a mind of its own a few times so i thought i'd cut the ride short before i crashed.

Morning All,

I ran my first 10k race yesterday for 3 and a half years and loved it. Very icy underfoot in places so very pleased with a 46.35. Apart from the first "fast" mile of 7.03 the rest were consistently paced.

Nice to have a benchmark to work from going into next year, looking forward to setting my half mara benchmark in January.

Jeez, 46.35, bloody racing snake, well done mate.

Nice one Holgs!

Need to get back to some consistency again this week, its never easy to keep a lid on it in December as it is

Great race Holgs - I can't have 3 and a half months off and do a 10k in that time - nice one.

Thanks guys, Sumo - I haven't had 3.5 months off - I've been training, it was 3.5 years since I raced a 10k

Scrubbed up quite nicely on FB ( Facebook not Fat Buddah ) Meldy, didn't recognise you. Hope it was a fun night.

Good stuff - must try and get along to one at some point. Nearest was Manchester and Em was overdue at the time.

Sounds as if a jolly fine time was had by all.  I'm most miffed at having missed Raf in his kilt.

Well, after 3 1/2 weeks of no running, I've just done the slowest 3 miles I've ever run but it felt bloody marvellous.  In my defence, 90% of the route was sheet ice (although 50% of that had snow on top to give a wee bit of grip).

I do keep forgetting you are slightly more North than the rest of us Nursey !!

Holgs, it would be good to see you both as well

Holgs, you are rapidly turning in to an Aferlete! A far cry from the bloke that inspired thousands!

A snotty 8 miler in my lunch hour today. Feeling v knackered, but managed to sweat most of Saturday evening out. Early night #2 tonight.

Evening all. 3.4 mile run tonight, 20 ish mile bike yesterday. Have to be careful or i may slip back into regular training.

My leg shaving is done for the winter. Must confess to actually liking having smooth legs, also found it quite therapeutic doing it as well

Waxing is a bit gay though, at least i did mine with a belt sander to keep some manliness in the process.
