That's precisely why I haven't done it Think I'll just leave it as it is for now and see what it looks like in a normal log run, and then I'll race a parkrun in a couple of weeks and see what I get to...

(((sluggy and BF)))))) hope the funeral went as well as these things can xx

Fingers crossed for your mum MC, glad she's determined to carry on as normal xx (er, I feel like I should know who Justine Greening is but I don't... aha... just checked, yep, I should have known but hey ho!) 

In my defence, I've just come back from a speedy run Not speedy for some of you, but pretty much the fastest I've run all year One of my miles even had a 10 at the front! (followed by a 50, but even so...  )

Need to figure out the HR though. Apparently I did 53% of my run at 80-90% of my MHR, and 11% at over 90% - I was making far more effort than usual but that does seem rather unlikely! Can't figure out how to work out what my MHR either actually IS, or is set to on the watch...

I was at that point MC, yes  Not now though - I am up and have run, only 4.5 miles and not exactly speedy but first run in nearly a fortnight and it was lovely to be out  

Off to do crafty things for the afternoon now with a friend  

Good plan not to do half marathon - twas chilly out there! Hope mini doesn't freeze, brrr. 

((((chuggles)))))) gosh, sounds utterly rotten. Glad we can't catch things through the internet. Good advice to wash hands - I took part in some research once and they said when you're washing hands, you should take at least 20 seconds, and cos that seems like forever, use it to think of something nice, like planning your next holiday Can't say I always manage 20 seconds  but I do always think of my holidays now

Right, best dash!

I don't have have any white furniture, or clothes, just in case... and I don't even have any pets!

Not like me to be miserable indeed Sluggy but it's got me with a vengeance at the minute. Just one thing on top of another - nowt of any significance but just too many things at once... suspect I'll live but Mr Cheery's parcelling me off to the docs next week. Fighting not to cancel appointment as I can't imagine they'll say anything other than 'work less amd don't worry about stuff'...

Hey ho! At least I can still be relatively cheerful on the surface and I always know how to make a smiley face on here which will make me look cheerful even when I'm not

Piddling down here. Hope it's nicer where you are...

Have a lozenge

Had to laugh at those paw prints You should definitely have bought tiles with them on Get him to stand in some tile paint next time, then they'll be permenantly there and you won't have to bother cleaning again

Good luck with the flat Sluggy. Eek at having to have a vote for the cat though. Good job they're not voting for the GPO!

Hope the underwear crisis was averted DL 

(((yummity)))) sounds like you need a bit of a hug at the minute lass xx You too Far Far (((())))))))

No running from me  Took kit to the seaside last week, but ended up in a pool of miserableness which could only be averted by cafes and restaurants Home now but work is behaving in a pesky fashion and thwarting my plodding. Will get out on Saturday, I promise!

Welcome back claire, happy training!

Well observed pippi. Glad someone can see you're competent

Tis funny with the social media thing. I've not been as careful in the past but at the minute I do actually have a 'strategy' which I'm happy with and which works pretty well. Twitter is under my real name and is work related - everything I post is public, I don't follow friends - they can follow me if they like but on the whole I keep it professional and people at work do follow me.

Facebook is private, only family and friends can see and i'm slowly filtering out people from school etc that I haven't spoken to for years. Anyone looking for me will see my name, and maybe the pictures I've had as my profile picture, ut if they're not my friend they won't see anything that I post there.

Forums I keep separate from both. I never use my real name - some of you lot know it and other people I've met in real life but I don't tell anyone new, and try not to link to anything that will directly identify me. I suppose you could do it by cross checking races over the years to see who's entered all of them but you'd have to be determined. I like to keep forums separate from real life as well as from work - my real life friends don't know I'm on here and while my mother follows me on Facebook I'd rather she wasn' reading everything I posted on every forum I'm on!

So I know pictures will get posted round facebook sometimes, but they're associated with my real name not directly linked to my forum account - and I will(a d have) untag myself if I don't like them so they're not linked back to me and don't show up to all my friends.

I know for some people the crossover is more vague, but this works for me for now

Anyway, not sure why I'm explainingall that in detail. Probably trying to avoid going for a run...

Hey Sluggs Fingers crossed for some speeding up on the house front... I've heard there's always a fair bit of waiting and messing about 

Ooh, missed the bionic ankle. I too didn't know that was even a thing. Good luck Mr FF... 

Had some good news on the 'being sold an empty box' front the other day - my non-complaint has finally received a response. Will report back when goodies arrive

Poddles, I hope you don't mind but I've contacted the mods to ask them to take the picture down, so if your post disappears altogether then that's why! Sorry, feel free to post the ones of you and Meldy again if they all disappear

Blithering freezing here too. Been surgically attached to hot water bottle since about September but starting to look like less of an idiot now...

Ah well, thanks for trying Poddles. I know it's out there in facebook land somewhere (although I untagged myself from it) but if anything it is associated with my real name on there, whereas here it's with forum and associated witterings, and there"s nowt at all in the way of privacy settings. But hey ho! Best make sure I'm super nice from now on

Can I go home from work yet?! Bored now.

I could see the first one and yes I do remember Excellent fun But could I be terribly rude and ask that you take the one with me in back down again please? Don't like to have my real life pic stuck on here where anyone can associate it with my forum name. I know it's unlikely but you just dont know who's going to happen upon it. I don't say anything I'dbe embarrassed about here but I wouldn't necessarily want my students to know everything about me that I'd ever posted.
