Cal - tell me about it! The colds I get off my 6 year old twins are ridiculous and frequent. I can't even begin to imagine what it must be like as a teacher.

Well done for getting up for your yoga class

Shades that seems really unfair to pull you off a closed circuit with only one lap to go Sorry to hear about that.

Great PB Ian5. 

Nice one on the 20 miler Big_G. I should have done one today too but messed up my planning and ended up doing Surrey Half instead. 

Thx Mama

Great to see Fast Koala is as fast as ever

Big_G - awesome pace Well done!

I was expecting a 1:55 at Surrey Half at a push given the 4 weeks of 13 miles and then the made rush to do more miles this week resulting in a 50+ mile week. So, I was surprised that I felt as strong as I did and was very happy to come in at 1:48:30. 

I think my endurance is ok but my lungs run out of steam when pushing a bit and I felt weak in the last 3rd of the race. Need to work on that after Brighton and am looking forward a summer of training which includes speed work. I've got the application form for one of my local clubs and they do track session so that should be good.

Doing OK Shades, how about you? Running has been a bit on and off for me. I didn't do any races at all in 2015 which is disappointing. I am doing Brighton Marathon in a few weeks. First 10 weeks of training went great. However, I then missed a couple of long runs, got a chesty cough from  the kids, and before you know it i did only a couple of short runs a week for 4 weeks. Still, I'll plod my way around Brighton and enjoy it and hope to continue running over the summer for an Autumn marathon.

I couldn't keep up with the thread but it's so nice to see many of the same names on here. I'm going to try and keep up with it again if that's ok. Do you all have a meetup planned for Autumn?

Didn't Jo Pavey do great to get 3rd in SPOTY! Impressive  

I haven't run for 14 days now I've missed over 100 miles of training. I am not 100% but I think I'm well enough to get out running again tomorrow. I think i've been patient enough

Also, I have Portsmouth Coastal marathon next weekend!

No running since Sunday It feels like an eternity. Cold muted in to Flu - I have a temperature, feel sick and have a cough as well as sneezing. Finding it really hard to sleep at night with the shivers etc.

What a bugger. Totaly screwed up my weekly/monthly mileage

I ran 202 miles in November. Was hoping to go bigger in December.

Emmy people seem to rave about the Petzl Tikka and Nao in other threads asking about head torches. Apparently it adapts it's intensity to ambient light so as it gets darker the torch gets brighter. There seem to be many variants though and im not sure what the differences are.

Hi Anniesophie! See you in Paris, I'm going too I used Shades plan to do London a couple of years ago and it was great. Being on the thread was also brilliant and Shades is so responsive (I don't know how she does it) that this helped as much as having the plan itself!

Well done on getting through your birthday so well - must have been such a hard day for you. Short break in Rome sounds great. It's so good that you have friends keep an eye out for you. It reminds me that I should value my friends more and I'm going to definitely call some of them tonight.

Shades that an impressive time to be up. What time do you go to sleep?

So, Twin 1 has had a cold for several days, and a cough too. It was only matter of time before I got it and I am surprised i have lasted this long. Woke up today with a stinking head cold. Let's see how long THIS one last for
