Been chiropractored! Another week out, lots of exercises and icing to do. Revisit next week and go from there...
Everyone seems very organized for next year, I fancy the Bosworth stuff. Even more so if Maths and super skinny ST will be there. Good luck peeps with the marafun.

My plans so far for 2013 are Outlaw half.

Local 10k in Feb
Goodwood Sussex Du - April
5 mile club race - May
East Grinstead sprint tri May

possibly a tri in Sept, but definitely want to do more cycling next year.
Weather forecast for Sunday is not looking great for my little sportive around Box Hill and surrounding area, but I can register on Saturday evening, which saves an early start.

Are you doing the Dorking sportive then Steady?

I am back running properly. Have done 21km this week in two runs, both faster than I would have liked, but only a few of us turned up for the club runs. Looking forward to the tri club bike ride this weekend. Feel like it's all coming together again.

Still unsure about Cardiff HM this weekend, so it probably won't happen.

ST - have a word with yourself chap!

Hi Gang,
I ran tonight on my own did 5.3 miles in 49.10, avg 9.16/mi couldn't believe how quick my pace was....
Mile 1....9.19
Mile 2.....9.07
Mile 3.....9.32...( uphill)
Mile 4.....9.11
Mile 5.....9.22
This is a big milestone and a big boost to my confidence and I felt absolutely brilliant all the way, HR was at the top end of Z2 but didn't feel like it and no probs with the ankle.....

IronCat - yes I am doing the Dorking sportive, just the fun route of 31 miles. Not looking forward to the first slog up to Ranmore but at least its a nice downhill before tackling Box Hill.The longer routes are deffinitely much more lumpy.

I plan to swim in the morning.

I'll drink to your success Razor.

Steady - take it easy up & Ranmore, especially if it's wet. Box hill was a treat last weekend, with the new road surface.

Er next year, sprints only. No endurance stuff. Long story, less'un you have a heart shrinking machine or can magic a catheter ablation without me noticing.

So, Cat talked me into Marlow Du, Stratford coz I missed Cake a couple of weeks ago (who is twelve by the way and I am a hundred and eleventy twelve), Cambridge Oly (a longer sprint), Outlaw run relay maybe (see long story), all the club tris if I can figure out the bike route, Brighton Marina tri which is orsum, and sprintish. Saffers Crawley tri thing which is fab but shit cheeseburgers after, G3 10K XC suicide runs plus would like to drag Smiffy over there, plus a new Guide to the Surrey Hills route which I will organise, and will hurt, a lot. And take a whole day.

Marlow Du w00p! Next year's details are not up yet, but it's a cracking morning out.

13/10/2012 at 15:00

Thanks for the warnings about Ranmore IronCat and Dustboy. I have driven the road a many times but never cycled, so it may reveal a" worse than I thought" side, but the bit down towards Rusper should be OK.
Did my swim this morning and saw Happychap, I had not swum for 2 weeks so quite tiring. Last 2 sets were 3 x 200m FC then Individual Medley, one length butterfly, which I just managed, 2 backstroke, 3 breast( I did 1) then 4 FC.

13/10/2012 at 20:30
Very impressed with your butterfly kick too ;0)
13/10/2012 at 20:59

Great going Steady - not sure I can do a length of butterfly!

Razor - that is great running So good to hear how well you are doing.

ST - such a shame that you won't get the homemade cake... especially as I was thinking lemon drizzle, or maybe carrot and coconut slice, or double choc chip brownies, or all butter apricot flapjack, or ........

14/10/2012 at 11:32

steady - well done, I would have no idea how to do butterfly!

managed 20 miles this morning very slow and lots of walking breaks but I did it

Great effort, MC - well done. Now eat cake ...

Hi everyone had no Internet over weekend right went for my hilly 18 miler yesterday, felt good at 17 so decided to go for 20 at mile 19 legs started to go so had to walk for 5 minutes which helped get legs back so ran the rest back home well chuffed 20 miles done. Question is where will I find the extra 6 miles from? was buzzing all night after the 20 miles. Legs fine today so even better.

Nice running MC looks like we both might hobble over line on the 4th

Will let you all know about Bosworth stuff once I hear more.

Nice running Razor.

Alibear30 how's running going?
14/10/2012 at 16:37

well done ST don't think I will be running the whole marathon but never mind, I will move myself around 26.2 miles somehow which is a damn sight more than most people are capable of
