Ha, fat chance of me ever getting close to sub2 (unless it's for a 10k ) I'm aiming for sub 2.30 and probably won't even come close!

(((((Sluggy)))))) you'd think being half robot would have SOME advantages at least...

Tissington is really quite close to me, what a shame it's full!   I shall have to come and bring a picnic

Podds - I was predicting a sub 2 for Spence's next half - she posted just before you saying she'd just done 2.01  

Urgh, just read a whole page and was trying to reply and then got distracted by ordering a takeaway  and now can't remember what anyone said and if I go back I'll lose myself. Oh dear! 

Mildly giddy - this afternoon I have been headhunted for the first (and probably last) time in my life  Fortunately for my new employers I shan't be leaving them just yet but it's very nice to be approached and it's handily timed just before my appraisal

Doesn't posting on a forum provide just as much proof and validation as facebook?? For me there are practical issues - this forum is a pain in the arse to navigate on a phone, and that's where I'm mostly online these days. And this is a lovely, but select, group of people - facebook holds my family and close friends, as well as some of you, and is also a lot easier to put up photos. 

I'm a waffler by nature (no, really) and will happily post the same bit of information in slightly altered forms in many places But I can see how if you got a bit bored of repeating yourself, you'd post in the place that was (a) easiest, and (b) had the most people on it. Especially if when you then popped back in here people were telling you off for not coming in often enough! 

Anyway, stick that soapbox back in the corner

We had flapjack in the woods, so I didn't need cake with the tea, although I have just made (and eaten lots of) banana muffins

MC, glad you were feeling better enough to do a race, well done! And cheese too - what a bonus

Glad to hear you had fun in your running shoes Poddles Happens rarely enough for you so it's nice to hear when it does! 

Walk sounds lovely Dragon  

My evening is mostly going to be spent drinking tea and eating muffins it seems...  Hard life

Ha, looks like great fun Podds!

I've been on a 12 ish mile women's bike ride, which somehow seemed to take us nearly 4 hours. So soggy and grim! Lots of mud. A small amount of tea and decidedly NOT the advertised "flat" although I did know that in advance...

Needless to say the sun came out as soon as we ended and it's been decidedly shining all the way through my bath...

Ooh yes, don't want to be breathing out colours all week! 

Visit off, they've been picked up by the RAC man and taken to an industrial estate somewhere off the motorway. Looks like I've got an afternoon of decorating to look forward to instead

And now they've broken down on the motorway... Apparently they 'managed to pull over by a phone' although I'm not sure why that's relevant as they've been texting me from a mobile...

Oh no MC, hope you feel better soon! 

Chuggles!  Lovely to see you back lass Only 8 days without visitors?!  I have a friend who once declared a 'naked month' as she'd had SO many visitors - Nobody is allowed to visit for an entire month as we will be spending the entire month entirely naked

I've been running  Didn't do parkrun as didn't think that would leave me enough time to get dressed etc before Mother Daffs got here. But then I faffed about so much I didn't run til 9am anyway - and then when I got back I got a text saying they were only just setting off (they live 2 hours away) as she'd forgotten to set the alarm! Plonkers

So I'm having a nice leisurely breakfast and I've still got an hour to tidy up

19 miles run this month! Not very fast but still
