'Twas a great evening indeed! Really great to catch up again and never fails to amaze me how well we all get on like we see each other every day, not as has been in my case normally once a year or with Dave five years ago!
Nice brisk 6-miler this morning as warm up for an afternoon of gardening/tidying garage . Still, off out for special dinner tonight as two years tomorrow since me and OH 'met' online. And bonus of missing Eurovision too!
Will definitely be there on Thursday peeps - looking forward to it! What time are we meeting again?
First race of 2013 for me this morning - Woodley 10K near Reading, dead flat and very unscenic - road race around housing estates and a large part along Reading-Wokingham road. Felt really good from the off despite quite a strong breeze and warm sunshine. Managed 48:12. Not a PB but very happy with that.
Wow! The old guard certainly turning out in force on the 16th!
OMD were amazing! Saw them twice in the 80's and they were sooo much better last night. Crowd went crazy as soon as they came on stage and stayed that way throughout - even though the average age was 50-something. Me & OH felt positively young! OMD were genuinely humbled by the applause they got all night!
Morning all. Well done Martin on another Mara - can't believe you've now done 25! And saw on Facebook that Fi also did MK yesterday - her 10th Mara.
Sticking by my plan of not doing another Mara although did of course enter VLM 2014 ballot. Have actually entered two 10ks in the next month - one next Sunday and one in June.
Running lots now (well, compared to the last three months for me, rather than you lot), but sticking to shorter tempo runs of up to 7-8 miles, plus running once a week with OH at slower pace to get her ready for 10K in June - did 4 miles easy on Sunday. 8 mile bike ride yesterday - punctuated with country pub lunch in the middle!
Saw OMD in concert in Oxford last night - absolutely brilliant, still buzzing!
Susan - waht's the plan for 16th May? Please can you let me know time and venue. Ta
