sub 4 hour group,if anyone wants to get together

Just diving in to say GOOD LUCK to everyone doing London this weekend and WELL DONE to everyone else who have recently been Marathoning in some part of the world!

I'll look forward to the coverage from the safety of my lounge but, like others, secretly wish I was running London on Sunday...

Training for Abingdon starts soon for me and, as ever, with a wildly optimistic target!

Anyone southern based wanting to meet up in mid-May for a social drink or two, I'm in London from the 13th to 24th - we had quite a laugh last year (from what I can remember...)

 

 

New Forest 10

I've just run the course (as New Forest club member we do our "race" the evening before) and just to say be prepared for a hot one folks! I know it's stating the bleedin' obvious but it was really warm out there at 6pm and felt even warmer amongst the trees on the forest tracks. 

So remember your hydration and sun cream...

Just saying...

Enjoy the race, at least we're not flooded out like last year!

Newcastle... is that December 16th or 16 laps of the racecourse?

...just asking that's all.

I've lost my mojo by the way - no speed, no urgency and defo no fast 10k this Sunday... can't seem to get back into it at the moment. Unusually missed a club night tonight too, just didn't fancy it.

Perhaps a few MOJITOS will do the trick!

A week ago? I haven't been getting email notifications for about 5 years...

 

and, yes, it is "switched on"

...and back to earth

I'll be just near the top of Sloane Ave near the Michelin House... happy to meet up anywhere really but if cocktails are required for AH there's always Maxwells at Covent Garden (usually Happy Hour/s in the evening!)

Just back from Google UK HQ today... kinda odd, but that's another story, and then a quick coaches meeting at the club to tackle our summer training schedule. All good fun - a very vibrant New Forest we are!

Wabo - that sucks big time... why did they have to mess with the GFA anyway??

Almost thought about the ballot this morning, then promptly forgot - which obviously means there are more important things in life - like life...and such. Still fancy Gloosester though (that's my Canadian pronunciation)

16th May it is! We could have a big party in my Chelsea apartment

Nice going Ikle... Good to have some speed in your little legs...

New Parkrun starts at Brockenhurst 25th May - boring looking course though - but may give it a go in June.

Hey Eastham - I wouldn't do Bournemouth anyway... Run most of the course many times before. Apart from a sea view it's zzzzzzzzz

 

Susan, yes, drinks on the 16th all being well and I'm not stuck in the Great Pavillion. Was thinking somewhere central... Ideas?
