Heroine - sounds like a good report to me. Most of mine are: my legs are tired....ooh there's cake!.... I'd like a beer..... do i know that person?..... where's that beer?

Racing with dogs

Simon - Raw food is exactly that. Frozen/raw meat. You should always check the content of the meat that you buy (as with any dog food) as a lot of the cheaper brands contain fillers which isnt good for the dogs stomach (especially huskies). I buy it in 100g blocks from the pet store in the frozen section but ive also picked up stuff from our local butchers.

Simon - I am appear like a bit of a snob here but i would never feed my dog cheap minced beef as normally its really poor quality meat and can cause upsets in their stomach/digestion. If I wouldnt eat it - neither will my dog.

Dogs thrive on quality and normally need a lot less as a result. My dog would have 250g frozen meat in comparison to 450g kibble so it's a good money saver.

Shades Marathon Training

Big G- I can agree with what he says. I was the same and the old addage that sugar is more addictive that heroin is something that i can totally believe. I loved the interviews as well and have them downloaded so that i dont lose them.

Ive also just started reading: waterlogged as I'm a real water-a-holic during marathons and I know that this isnt a good thing.

The Torquay hot desk sounds like a good idea. It would also be nice to have some other runners in the building. I enjoy running with my colleagues even if it is just 5k slow after work. I enjoy the company.

I'm one of those people that can just leave a speech. Once it's done; it's done. It's quite interesting to see how different people adjust speeches and presentations. I have one colleague that edits up to the meeting and still says something different in the final presentation!

Who else gets up at stupid O clock to run ??

Hi Shades - I was just googling for it but I think it's on the interview on marathon talk. He talks about running a marathon and the only thing he wanted to drink was a glass of fresh milk - so that's what he did.

Iain - well done. That weightloss must also be helping your speed

Shades - i think preparation and diet is the key. You cant just do it one day a week.

Big G - I really like Tim Noakes and remember his interview on marathon talk and talking about doing a marathon on milk.

Fantastic shot! Looks like a great place to run. I think poor Becky looks a little done in - how big was that hill?!
