Is running in the dark easier

Agree with Gideon. Faster when I can see where I'm going! Otherwise the uneven paving slab funds you!

What are your goals for 2015

Posted: 14/12/2014 at 01:17

1000 mile (have failed in 2012, 2013 and 2014. Maybe 2015 is they year!)

to be able to do at least 1 pull up! (Boyfriend recently got a putt up bar. Realised how bad I was at them!)

What TV boxsets would you recommend?

I'm currently watching The Leftovers (produced by the creator of Lost). I'm finding it good, my boyfriend is getting annoyed by it. But then he got fed up of Lost whereas I didn't).

Other things I've watched this year include Breaking Bad, Sherlock, Utopia, The Returned and we recently re-watched Twin Peaks.

How much time off would you like?

I wouldnt take a pay cut. I currently am saving quite a lot but want to put it towards buying a house. It's also nice to have a safety net of savings.

My job is pretty flexible so I can work the hours I want, as long as I get stuff done. I generally come in 10/10.30 and stay til 6/6.30. If I spoke to my boss I probably could work four long days, but then I'd have to be better at getting in in the mornings and I probably wouldn't do anything with my spare day to make it worth while! 

Showers and lockers in Westminster

Never seen a shower at Victoria station but never really looked.

cant think of a pool round there but there is the Kings College London gym near Waterloo. £6 for a. External person to use gym. If you ask May do a deal of just using shower. Would post link but struggling to do it on iPad!

Things you want to say but can't

The one topic if like to talk about I can't until I'm back in a room with my fellow jury men/women.

I wanted to sit in a room for 2 week rather than have to make these decisions.

Personal Safety for Female Runners

Hi, I did your survey.

Not sure if you want feedback, but I had one quick point about q10. You ask "how often do you tell friends and family your I tended route and when you'll be back" to my mind these are two very different things. I always tell my boyfriend when I'll be back, but never tell him my route. I answered never of the survey as I never do both.

Running without music

Cinders wrote (see)

I like running. I like music. I like doing both together so not escaping anything. Each to their own. 



This sums it up for me. I like using my running time to listen to music, especially if I've just got a new album. I can chart my life based on what I was listening to whilst running!

All things Christmas (sorry, but I'm feeling festive)

Posted: 16/10/2014 at 22:44

This year we went swimming instead (well sort of... the pool was too busy to really swim!) But my mum, sister and I have been on a family run before for christmas.

If I'm with my boyfriend's family, they're usually busy and do the a big family christmas. It does make it difficult to fit in a run, but I usually do on either on Christmas eve or Boxing day (or both).

Cutting half the field every six miles

Posted: 14/10/2014 at 23:41

I like the idea but looking at this years times there's no way I'd get to be a finisher. Interesting looking at the times from this year to see how far I think I'd get.

I like to think I could get to stage 2 (as a female need to do 8 miles in 1:53ish) but the course looks brutal!
