Welshpoppy I forgot to say that was a heavily discounted rate - £89 for the room and £10 for breakfast. I normally use Booking.com for my hotels and in fact I have just had an email in from them offering hotel rooms in Cradiff from £47 so have a look now!!!
I loved my blackberry but the iphone is very good for reading large emails, documents, and the like - just turn it round 90 degrees and there is a 4"+ screen to read across. Good news about the ankle - although it takes about 2 weeks for the proprioception (hate that word!!) to recover so watch out for bumps and matchsticks on the pavements!!
Columba I have just discovered predictive text - I shall see if I can beat it!!
So we are agreed on Our Lady of the Taper?
aws I think Gramin was more accurate by your pace unfortunately so you have not been shortchanged
John nudging I can do I am off to a wedding too this weekend in Henley on Thames and then on to Hampshire for a couple of days to see my sister in law and family for a bit more support after her husband's untimely death Your boundary race sounds fun - I did one once many, many years ago up in the English/Scottish Borders - fun it was not!!!
Another 60 min walk/run in 1/4 min time this morning when it was at least not cold gave 6.2 miles at 9:43m/m anda vHr 128 and a max of 151
Just testing my new iPhone 6 which I have got to replace my beloved Blackberry. Seems quite neat apart from battery life and touch typing.
I have tried most hotels in Cardiff over the last 6 months and have ended up with the Park Plaza. Pricey at ??100 a night B&B but very comfortable and up to date.
Like the multi tasking - ironing &a exercises!
10m/m is ok for my walk/runs as I slowly rebuild my aerobic base and keep the heart rate down
Never inspired anyone by running three days (actually it's 6 days now!) in a row????
Our Lady of the Taper sounds a perfect devotional for a well prepared athlete
Welshpoppy no time for shopping this time round in Cardiff - but the sun shone!! You should try some one legged balances on your injured ankle to get the balance bit working again and to repair damage.
John inanimate objects - hills??? No they are evil, malevolent entities whose whole purpose is to crush the spirit of runners! I refuse, ever, to have a walk break on an uphill, they must be on the level or downhill, that way the hill can't win!
It had actually warmed up a little bit this morning though the wind still had a nice edge to it as I trotted round on my usual walk/run 1/4min time for 60 min exactly to do 6 miles exactly ( so 10m/m exactly!) with avHR 124 and a max of 149 on the usual hill that jealously guards my way home and extracts its usual toll charge.
That followed 4.8 miles yesterday and 4+ miles on Tuesday evening in a hail storm bombarded with pea sized missiles so I am on a bit of a streak
good morning (or bore da as I am about to catch the train to Cardiff )
Welshpoppy sorry but I did laugh at how you manged to mangle your finger with a rolling pin!! I saw the Run & Become shop but as I was in the pits of despair after being told not to run again (again!!) I did not go in. As you can see I am very good at giving advice but not so good at following it. I have masses of yellow poppies in my garden too - they root in the most unlikely places - but also have difficulty growing other varieties
Ceal now that you have the essentials done enjoy your luxury flight!! You will find plenty of girls there who are very good at painting nails - and braiding hair. One even volunteered to do mine so one can't say they lack ambition or confidence!!!
Heavy rain this morning had me back in my Goretex jacket and, feeling ok after yesterday's effort, decided to do the same again to see what was left.
It turned out to be almost identical - 5.15 miles in 50 min of walk/run in 1/4 time with avhr 128 (65% WHR) and a max of 151
