Westminster Bridge / Embankment junction at lunchtime: Large white van, motor cycle wedged underneath it, 3 police cars, road taped off. Why are so many of you taking photographs?
Me? Head down, ran along the Northside of Embankment. I'd rather not look thanks.

Ice bucket challenge - f**k off already
I have two kids. Every week in summer for the best part of 15 years I've had cold water tipped over me allegedly in the name of 'play'

morning all,
In fairness, Friday's shopping trip lasted hours, my own contribution was to bag carry for the kids (youngest has birthday looming, eldest celebrated gcse results and impending start at college), read books in Waterstones, browse in sweatshop and waited in the cafe between bag drops...
I know autumn is here when it's dark on getting to London, not quite there yet, but will be soon.
What - track, 800s & 400s
Why - mile race in a few weeks, xc season starts in 6 weeks
last rest - Friday
last hard - yesterday really. Rained non stop for 2 hours, in fields and woods for about 14 miles. Not a soul about.
That aside the rest of the weekend was glorious and sunny, so shouldn't complain really.
lyric - feeling that I should, but penny not dropped immediately

hello all,

Good to see Don running well (again!)
Quick recap - Friday 7 hours at Bluewater shopping. 
Saturday - about 10 miles on the hills & fields along the Medway
Sunday - easy 6 miles on country lanes 
Today - long run back home over the fields
Last rest - Friday 
last hard - today

enjoy what's left of the weekend

LmH - mile race in a couple of weeks - hence all the short/speedy stuff, and aside from the XC season I did find the A20 path & downs marathon (and half) in mid Nov which is close to where my brother lives. I'll see if I can rope him into jogging round with me!
Birks - that's about the last time I played (normal) rugby! All boys school - no footy until third year.

Morning all,
Emz - good luck with the job
Dibs - nice miles yesterday
RFJ - dodgy start to the season for your lot, but still a long way to go
what - supposed to be hills, but I'm juggling sessions this weekend as will probably be in Kent for much of it (family). So likely to be flat speed at lunchtime as there are no hills in central London and do the hills on Saturday instead of track.
why - training makes me a better runner
last rest - 16 days
last hard - Tuesday, although 8+ yesterday lunchtime was a bit too enthusiastic for a recovery run!

lyric - yes indeed
yesterday were Kasabian's "Eez-eh"

for the love of God , shut up. Every morning you get on the train and talk incessant bollocks to your long suffering friend who seldom gets a word in. I doubt she cares about your new wardrobe, and just so you know , nor do half the carriage. It surprises me not that your partner/spouse/boyfriend is going fishing for the whole of the bank holiday weekend. Its for one of two reasons , either he doesn't want to put a new wardrobe up or it's to get away from your whining voice. I suspect the latter.
