Conkers Park run done - have to say I really liked the course a bit muddy and wet could've been a lot worse considering how grotty it's been.  Good run with SuperCaz we got beat at the end but all good!

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you have all had a better day than us - traveling 6hrs home down the A1 with four daughters with a tummy bug. 

Well done on your park run Buttercup

chili - that sounds like a horrible journey. Hope they all get better soon

Well done on your PB JP! Did the New Year run happen or have Buttercup and Supercaz put you to shame? 

Oo Chili that sounds nasty!

Had a go at Audiofuel tonight... Like that!  Focusing on my run programme. Switching Tempo runs for turbo sessions to save the knees and ankles. Throw in a weekend bike and slowly integrate the swimming. what could go wrong?

Chilli - sorry to hear about your journey back home, hope the girls are starting to feel better.

I'm still ill but have joined the gym for access to pool and spin sessions. Induction on Saturday. Will try to get some easy swimming and cross trainer in next week even if I'm still not 100% as count down to HM is on!!!

Belated Happy year girls and gem's.

MrsD - sounds like a good plan

mikasa - do you need to go to a dr? You seem to have been ill for a while now

OH is off ill (and he doesn't get sick pay - he felt the need to wake me at 4 to tell him it was ok to stay at home!!) so I didn't go for an early run, but I have done a gym session (weights) and will be going for an afternoon run in the sunshine. I might do a bike session in the gym as I will be taking youngest son for his swimming lesson later and there is no point in just sitting watching! Easy spinning will be fine!

MC - It's really just sniffles, not feeling 100% and an 'evening cough', it only bothers me in the evenings really when I'm lieing down. Can't really see what they can do for me and because of the longer commute now, I might have to take half a day off which I'd rather not. It is third week now though so not sure what I should do.

My plan starts today, had a great swim this morning in an almost empty pool,  run tonight then I'll have to try and find my bike for tomorrow morning, I'm marshalling at Parkrun on Sat, jogging 8 miles to get there, If all goes to plan I'll be very proud of myself as I have never lasted more than 3 days of a plan without altering it

Mikasa, I often have lingering coughs and colds, I usually have a good day off and stay in bed and rest, it works for me, I have tried training through it but it makes it harder to shift, It might be worth visiting the docs just to be safe, might be a virus that needs anti biotics to move.

Cool daft question which parkrun? I'm just looking up wants in or near Birmingham as there this weekend. Anyone know a good one that's not to far from Erdington?

02/01/2014 at 12:47

Hey Cake, I'll be at Coventry, its a nice one, 2 laps of the War Memorial park, but may be a bit of a trek from Erdington, there is one at Sutton Colefield
