Hi all hope you are all ok.

Well found the Bath Half blooming hard work did it in 1.51.13 so shaved about 30secs of pb. Was a bit disappointed as usual scenario was doing really well upto mile 9 and then ran out of gusto and slowed right down to nearly nine min miling Need to find a way to get through and keep on running at the same pace as the early part of the race. Not sure how though but i guess its just practice.

 Seejay 1.49.43 thats fantastic as LBB said you have all those marathon miles in your legs and still put in a fab race.

Ffran Well done on your PB 1.51 thats great, we could jog along together totally agree with you on Nessie think she runs on a 36hr day the amount she manages to squeeze into it.

Nessie - Come on let us into your secret Ness how do you fit it all in!! Sounds like your training is going fab and with all those different types of exercise that little bit of weight will fly off. I have missed coming on here but things have been pretty manic what with the children, mum not being well and anything else that cared to go pear shape, I just havent had time. After I get back off of holiday I will need you all to gee me along and get match fit. My aim is to scrape under 1.50 for Cardiff Half whether that happens or not though  is a different matter !! Hope all good with you.

Running Kev/Tazi/LBB Hope all good with you.

Toby I agree with you Bath was much better organised this year, there didnt seem to be as much hanging about, I suppose the fact that the weather warmed up a little at the end helped for the short time we were waiting. Was a good time that you did even though not your PB.

Saw Towner at Bath he did amazing with his gammy knee. But I expect he'll be on here at some point to let you know. 

Sorry to anyone Ive missed.

Right must get on with some work and its not long until we go off to Florida YAY actually its Thursday so must get the packing finished too.

 Take Care all, Talk soon

Evening all

Brian your pup is so cute, hope your new shoes are suiting you ok , I had a new pair recently and they still dont feel as comfy as my old ones.

Toby well done on your 20 miler thats fantastic, how are you feeling at the end of these long runs, obviously a bit pooped but other than that ok??

Seejay hope all goes ok with your long run.

I really must pull my finger out and enter a marathon all of you are fantastic doing these long runs.

Well done Stret09 

Steve2010 Oooo will look out for Fearn then, obviously will pass your number on.

Nessie/Ffran - hope all good with you guys.

LBB thank you, hopefully it will go ok, i feel like im losing my mojo on the longer distances at the moment.

Stay well everyone, will let you know how Sunday goes, treating it as a training run as dont want to get hurt before Bath so wont be very speedy.

Good Morning one and all hope you are all ok

Sorry for going AWOL for so long,so much going on at the moment. Have missed reading how you are all doing. My resolution is to try and post more often on here.

Have read back on this page only so far, fantastic Longleat run Seejay and Tazi a PB well done.

Congratulations to Mrs LBB.

Nessie/Ffran hope you guys are keeping well and the training is going good. I expect Roobs is a big girl now.

Have been keeping up with my training did the Stonehenge Stomp at the end of January and have been doing speed training and tempo runs with some long runs thrown in to get ready for Bath. Im doing The Wiltshire 10 on Sunday so hopefully that will go quite well.

Well wishes to you all

Hi guys

Hope you are all keeping well, just got back from a weekend away in Stratford and Oxford. Was lovely and relaxing although a little blustery while walking around.

Sounds like there have been some fab runs going on, Seejay 18 miles thats great and to feel quite comfy the next day is amazing ;0)) Toby a good 18 for you too. well done Brian your going great guns a marathon will def be doable for you.

LBB it will be lovely for your wife to have you running across the line with her for her PB Im sure she will really appreciate it.  Hope you are starting to feel some improvement on your injury.

Ffran  - Fab training you are so focussed, dont know where you get all the time and energy from.

Nessie - Hill runs def make the tops of my legs ache and my bottom. As already said def better to stop and be fit to run another day.

Soup/ Tazi Good runs, this rain and wind is making it all much harder work.

Sorry to anyone Ive unintentionally missed

Take care all

Hi all

Been busy in here, hope your all ok.

Ness ie - Glad Roobs is feeling a bit better hope horsie is on the mend too.

Reading back over a few of the posts you are all doing so well with you training. Listening to all of you that have entered marathons is very inspiring I do really want to have a bash, I just dont think I can be fully committed to the amount of time you have top put in until my little boy is a bit older and Im happier to leave him for a bit. I will be willing you all around though. Both the Edinburgh and the Dublin one sound lovely.

Went out for a run Sunday morning it was more ice skating really, we did 5 miles very gingerly. It was black ice and you just couldnt see it until you were nearly skidding up on your bottom. Did 3 easy on the old tready yesterday and off out for a longer run today, got to start increasin those miles.

Lovely to hear from everybody that hasnt popped in for a while, glad youre all doing ok.

Take care all

Brian - Well done you, like Ffran says a PB is a PB. Congrats.x

Ffran - Used to take the children camping alot so I can cope with a field and a tap but him in doors isnt so keen. He thinks the comfort of a good sleep in a bed is necessity. You are doing fab with all your marathon training makes me feel quite lazy!  Its amazing how the speed work even over shorter lengths picks up your speed on the longer stuff. Thats going to be a warm marathon im assuming with it being in Florida, that makes it harder. Still at least youve got a little holiday as well to relax and get over it.

Take care of yourself. x

Thanks RK

Seejay I must admit I find the flight an enjoyable part of a holiday but I appreciate that not everyone feels that way. If you said I had to drive somewhere  though Id be a nervous wreck especially when Ive got my precious kiddiwinks in the car. I had a rubbish run last night too did 3 miles with intervals in, my festive overhang was nearly overhanging over the top of my running tights, its gotta go!!

Running Kev - any tips or ideas you can pass on will be gratefully received, we want to make the most of it as we probably wont be able to do it again.

Thanks Binx x
