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.

.........and that coming from a man who not only waxed his legs before Outlaw, but posted photos as well

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.

Meh. Wax on, angle-grind off. Don't overtrain!

ha ha I know all about that walk/race....nope never going to do it, saw how it wrecked several people ( inc Dad ) over the years. Lots of people keep trying to get me to do it with them, not a chance.

Of course it is - I've ran a bit of it as support for someone that was racing.
