Was going to go for last little run today to finish off this year well, but it's raining and I just can't be asked. Happy New Year everyone!!

Thanks mikasa, I still cba, so if you're not going out neither am I.

All the best for 2013 and beyond.

Not sure this will be worth running in 2013. It died after Outlaw and is the weakest it's been since I joined in 2010. None of the 2013 Virgins on the "Fatman to Ironman" and other threads seem to find it a motivator and it needs new blood.

So... less points for me this year than in 2011, but a significantly better performance in my "A Race". Didn't make an arse of myself in any races, so I'm broadly happy. No events entered for me in 2013 yet. Hopefully something will grab my imagination soon .

Thanks all for participating. Thanks especially to Marshallini and Donna for providing most of the inspiration.

May I add a big thanks to everyone as well.  This definitely helped me keep my mileage up for the Outlaw and get the job done.

Last minute decision to run with the tri club this evening so a little 5.59 points bonus.

Bows out of 2012 with a pathetic 3 mile run, a pathetic 400m swim and an even more pathetic 20 mins in the sauna.  I'm off to get pissed now so nothing really new there.

I loved this format, I know it wasn't about the numbers but if one balanced quality with the numbers you could get quite a decent program motivator out of it.  I did neither .

I hope that it continues, my totals dropped off post outlaw due to injury and illness, but I enjoyed secretly competing with Cat and a few others.

nothing pathetic about any of it VT - no matter what numbers anybody is putting up there, we all have someone to chase or try and keep ahead of, but most of all we arent melting into a sofa in front of a TV
despite my May/June meltdown its been a great year,
pity STIL over did it by 2 points

to finish off the year i ran half mile intervals x3  followed by a beasting session on the leg extension and hamstring machines then onto the treadie for a 5 to 15% hill climb x2, a half mile cool off then into a crowded pool for 200m splash - i couldnt take anymore - back strokers in the fast lane (not quick ones either) then it just filled up

I have enjoyed this even though I had a lot of downtime due to my hip replacement operation and subsequent 6 months of non-running. Hope the format continues for 2013! I shall do better.

NYE 10km for LJS, 5km for me.

I would be keen to join in this year, I didn't join in last year as it was half way through the year when I saw the thread.

Its always the way, poeple use it till their chosen race and some keep it up other drop off.

Look at the start of 2012,,,must be 30 plus people, ends with 12 so what?

I think a big part of why the numbers posting drop off is because it's quite healthy to have a complete break from training

In 2011 I posted right through the year and in 2012 this thread worked fantastically as a motivator, but after the marathon then IM cycle I just really needed a complete break from the numbers so did all my training without any garmin and just ran, cycled and swum for the joy of it!

I'd be gutted if there wasn't a 2013 thread
