padams - really sorry to hear about the dog. It just be really hard but sounds like you made the correct decision.
Bainspj - great training especially fitting around the new born. One of my many niggles is to do with a stiff ankle. My pain is towards the back of the ankle and it sort of feels like it is stiff. It normally loosens up a bit after a mile but begins to tighten sometime after a few miles.
JCT1 - welcome. You sound like you are going to a speedy one over the marathon.
CW and Selbs - I hope the niggles calm down for you both.
SJ -only 4th mince pie of the season? I can easily manage 4 in a day.
Jools and Thirsk Runner- nice plodding, especially after your weekend excitement.
TR - I like your approach of keeping it easy at the moment. VLM feels a long way off.
It was all gentle running for me last week. I managed a slow 15 on Sunday to bring up 36 for the week. I fear this week the only way I will manage 36 will be if we count units of beer, as I seems to have 4 nights out this week. Gulp.
Good work Wardi. I am jealous of the weather and curry, though I will force myself down the pub for a couple later.
CD - well raced in less than ideal conditions. I did the Epsom 10 a few years back and loved the use of the Jockey weighing room for runners to get changed in - it isn't often we find ourself in a room where we would look overweight.
Good 20m TJB - are you racing again soon?
I followed the general trend of slogging around about 14 miles as CW, TR, Jools, CC2 in ankle deep puddles and along muddy trails.
This thread moves so fast - both the runners and the posters. I wanted to say a big well done to DrD for the sub 75 in Gosport - just imagine how fast you would have been without the massive beer belly? The other highlight last Sunday was Dachs 10k time - amazing!
Just gentle running this week. Got a few niggles which I hope clear up ready to build a base in Dec.
