Running eye, 15 mins ...well, depends on the conditions really so to be honest I wouldn't get too wrapped up in a target time.

Don't ask me about last long runs. Your plan sounds good! I'm doing 4 marathons before Snod but that isn't sensible!

TRex, promise me that one day we will do an adventure together, I can tell all the young 'uns about it when I'm in a Care Home. It'll take some believing!

Chimney, so sorry to hear about recent events mate. I looked out for you yesterday but it was so busy. Thought it was a cracking event though, did you? You obviously thrashed out a bit of stress building up inside to have got a PB on that course. Hope to see you at Snod if not before

New vet group for me too in about the same time FR, Vet 50+ for me as well, yikes!

Plenty of water guys, straight from the skies, usually horizontal No, seriously, there are plenty of them. I normally go and stash a bottle of lucozade behind a wall halfway between Beddgelert and Waunfawr the night before but never felt the need for it (do go and fetch it afterwards though)

Rogie, lie on your back with a towel around your affected leg/ foot like a sling . Clutch on to both ends and stretch against it as hard as you can for  3 x 15 seconds. Hope it helps, do it as often as you can.

Well, huffed and puffed around Chesterfield marathon today. I only live half an hour away but had forgotten just how hilly it is. Anyway, 3hrs 37mins and no bowel moments this week . Chimney, did you do it?

SD, awesome stuff girl. WELL DONE x

Hiya SD, great to hear you are back on it girl. Wirksworth event is up the road from me, can't remember what I'm doing that day so may look it up!

Jono, did you make it?

Wow, Inside Forward, that sounds a quality event in fine weather and well recovered too

Back from LDWA Canal Canter marathon, WOW, I love this event. At CP 5, it is compulsory to stop and judge the various cakes on offer to the runners and walkers.. well it would be rude not to taste each offering so ..well a bit of a slow time but came 2nd lady! Chesterfield marathon tomorrow, back to the SIS gels

Blimey, where did the week go? Good to see you are still pounding the fields of Suffolk Run Jono. Good luck with the weekend jolly John Bach, the tales I could tell regarding some of my marathon excursions would need censorship so best not put them down in black and white!!

Canal canter marathon tomorrow then Chesterfield marathon on Sunday. This is highly likely to be chaos as it is their first shot at it but it's local so it's got to be done. The mighty Great Langdale next Saturday, cant wait for that one!

Rexy, mad moo!

Jono, did you crack the 4th yesterday?

Trex, c'mon let's hear the report!

Other Half-we will see you in 2015

Cheers Chrissi, let us know the news.

Rogie, keep the faith. The atmosphere of the event gives you another buzz to get you around and pass on congrats to your talented son


Well, did Wolves marathon yesterday. Terrible bowel issues at mile 18 and not a toilet or bush to be seen. No idea why it happened, may be over loading on rubbish after the back-to back marathon 2days before. Hobbled in with legs crossed in 3:38. 4th lady, 2nd in age group. BUT, worse was to come! RD insisted that top 5 women had to go to Corporate Hospitality to be wined and dined by Mayor and then be present for prize giving and speeches..still no time for toilet..untangled myself from all this and dashed for portaloo..only just in time.

Still feel quite ill thinking about how terrible I felt for those last 8 miles but will get over it! Two marathons at weekend to look forward to
