Just a Little Bit Further - 2014

Jude-welcome back lovely picture!

Franny-Have a great party, I guess next time you will be in London will be marathon time. I officially entered yesterday. Hope you have a better flight home than las year!

MC-Have a great time in the spa & happy birthday.

Well I did 6.2 miles yesterday, but, decided not to do the park run as could still feel the pain in my leg & as park is muddy & slippery decided best not to aggregate it. May run with my ladies tomorrow as need a little break after being a good hubby looking after my wife!

Franny-That sounds like a plan & a good way of keeping the thread going. It is a shame and it would be good to share our plans for the New Year. Would be great if we could get naught Loula back on an ad hoc basis. Hopefully Deejay is still running as he is doing Brighton marathon 2015.

MC-Hope your concert went well.

Managed 5.2 miles this morning-1st run since Friday as busy looking after wife who is still in a lot of pain and not sleeping very well. Pleased to say  my run was 90% painfree so am easing back into it for the remainder of the year. Hope to run on Friday and may do Park Run on Sunday.

Bye for now....

Yes my wife had her operation last Tuesday and came out of hospital on Saturday. As the hospital was 25 miles away spent a lot of time driving to see her & only did 3 3 milers. My leg is still not 100% in fact despite not running since Friday doesn't feel brilliant. Am hoping to get back to some decent runs next week as I am off for a couple of weeks over Christmas and New Year. So am frustrated!!!!

Franny-Well done on your 7 miler. So need to get my leg sorted and mojo back! Sounds like  your club held a well organised race. But yest 3.20 for a 1/2 is probably a bit frustrating to marshall for!

MC-Sounds like a busy week. Such a shame the pantomine was a farce. Really poor that they started so late as I suspect the whole audience were children and other groups left at the same time.

So it seems there are just 3 of us left on this thread. Not sure there is much point in a 2015 thread.

Franny-Hope you are ok and enjoy your race in the beautiful Scottish conutryside.  

MC-Always wise to pay a little more for car insurance so that you get a hire car or could be very costly. Hope your car is all ok.   

Well I managed 8.5 miles on Friday with the ladies & am not in any pain at the moment!!! Haven't run this weekend as sorting out things with Mrs AF for her 3rd time lucky operation on Tuesday.


Will ease back into running...hopefully 3 miles tomorrow and wednesday.

Oh MC. That is too bad.Hopefully the insurance gets sorted out & good that you are ok. Hope you have access to another car to get to and from work. Well done for finding your Mojo- hopefully you can find mine. 

Franny-That race sounds fab - it is so beautiful up there and my run with you was one of the highlights of 2014. I have passed on your thoughts to Mrs AF - 3rd time lucky on Tuesday. have not run this week,but, am aiming to go out with the ladies tomorrow.Doing my best to be sensible!!! Think I am going to take things easy for the next couple of weeks and then when I am off for the two weeks either side of Christmas ease back into my running. Can't even imagine being able to run a marathon at the moment!! Sounds like you had a lovely weekend.

Loula-It's nearly the weekend and I need to be cheered up so can you misbehave and post some nice pictures of Russian pole vaulters!!! Franny-You are good at that too!!

No 3.15 for me Loula. Would like to run with Franny and get her  a sub 4. Need to get my mojo back & leg sorted.

Oh dear oh fly in and bring this thread down to the gutter!!! Good to here from you. Seems a bit of a lonely thread here. 

Still awaiting for a date for Mrs AF..Life seems to be on a hold....still struggling with my leg..3 miles on sunday, felt a bit of pain yesterday, seems ok so hopefully 3 miles tomorrow. Just want to build things up a bit.

One bit of good news was that I managed to get the club place for London Marathon so hopefully can get my leg ok and train in the New Year. Fingers crossed that I can run with Franny and get her the sub 4 hours that I am sure she can achieve.

Ooh....Mrs AF's operation was cancelled @ the last minute. She was about to go into the operating theater and then they couldn't find an anesthetist. So she is very upset - so hopefully 3rd time lucky some time next week. They couldn't even give us a new dates. Sadly shambolic.

MC-Hope you had a good swim,

Franny-Enjoy your romantic weekend. 

Managed 3 miles after I had come back from the hospital & before I heard the bad news from Mrs AF- at least I am not feeling too bad in the leg.

Franny-Have a great time in Holland and enjoy your track night.

Hi MC.

Well I managed 3 miles relatively pain free on Tuesday, ached badly yesterday and not quite so bad today. So just 3 miles this week. May run tomorrow,but, not with girlies as am taking Mrs AF to hospital for an operation.

Trying to be sensible and getting frustrated. So although getting despondent the sad news about Philip Hughes (a cricketer who was a very exciting player & who I had the privilege to watch a couple of times live) put things into perspective.

Franny-Well done on all of your exercise. Think I will be trailing you if I get the LM place. Managed 7 miles on Friday,but, really suffered later on. So not run since.

Aiming to do a series of 3-4 milers this week to ease back in. Back is ok, but, can still feel the leg niggle.

Jude-Yes what a star you are. 100% respect to you. Really admire you - couldn't do that myself. You need to order yourself a bespoke medal.

MC-Hope you are better?

Seems that everyone is leaving this thread at least FB keeps us informed.
