I won a free place for that Pippi (it is the Vitality one isn't it?) but didn't feel I had enough in me to do it this early in the year. Glad I didn't if it rained all the way. 2.17 is a fantastic time especially if she hasn't trained for it.
Yummsy, so sorry to hear about your bikes being nicked! It's a bit of an extreme way of getting out of training though.
DL, what are you not angry about? What is so disappointing?
How's the training, exercising going with everyone? Great pics of the Colchester half on Spence's FB! How big are those medals? Good job they aren't made of chocolate!
Daffs, we were going to go for a walk too but saw the weather forecast yesterday and decided against it. (did the park run yesterday and got soaked and couldn't get warm for the rest of the day). So after lunch we are going to Spring Clean the living room. Rock and Roll!
(((Daffs))) I sympathise with the toothache. I get it intermittently but when it comes on it is sudden and agonising. My dentist is stumped and sent me to another dentist who didnt think it was the tooth that I think it is as I have had root canal work done on it. At the moment I can't afford to go back to the dentist for any more work.
Coco, it's great to hear that you had a good holiday and also time to reflect on what is working for you and what isn't.
Snaily, the TT is obviously testing your resolve to keep him!!!
What wonderful news about Thandi. It's such a shame that humans are so indoctrinated in such lies that mean they keep killing other inhabitants of this world.
Spence, those fancy pants look really good on you.
Chuggy, what a lovely gift from Mr C, even if I have no idea what it is all about!
JFF, you is well 'ard, plodding on the icy stuff. I don't even like walking on it!
Sluggy, new choir sounds different. Hope it sets the tone for 2015 (groan).
Monday I walked to work and it was like being in the rinse cycle of the washing machine, wet, windy and cold. To top it off I stood on something that made my trainer go 'pop' I thought it was a nail or something as I could feel it stuck on the bottom. I caught the bus home and when I got there I needed pliers to pull out the glass which was about 1.25 inches embedded in the sole.
New Runner, follow the philosophy of this thread and Work At It Slowly. Sounds like an awful lot of effort (and a lot of stats).
Ooo Tubs fizz sounds really good. It's ace when you can find someone you can trust and is excellent at their job. Hope Bram is okay and the vets cushions are well tested! I know you worry about the eye ops but I hope all goes well.
Spence, those leggings are ace. I've been looking for funky leggings for a while and now I can't afford to buy any, bah!
Nogs, good to hear that Penny is home and comfortable and replete. Keep up the good work.
A muddy Murph and a long, lingering lunch sounds like you both enjoyed yourself today. Happy Birthday.
Chuggy, I don't think Mark actually had a relationship, as such, with this woman. He just instantly fell for her and there seemed to be potential in the relationship. Still he was really down in the dumps about it.
Snaily, holiday sounds good, something positive to look forward to.
I did a 4 mile walk with Barney and at times it was like climbing the North Face of the Eiger. Sure it must count double on the Workplace Challenge.
