Formaggio - parkruns are organised 5km events that are free to run in and available all over the place that take place on Saturday mornings. They're very popular in the UK, most places seem to have At least one. They're not chip timed, just gun timed and your position and time is recorded using a barcode you print. Organised and marshalled entirely by volunteers.

I've only ever ran 4 or 5 Parkruns. All of which have been meet-ups with the lovely people from here.

No runs for you then Eggy?

Oh yeah. That'll be training and hiding, but since it's cold, dark and miserable outside being out running is almost the same as hiding!

My Christmas plan is to hide until it's all over.

Towney - I think there's a 12 week plan in the book Advanced Marathoning by Peter Pfitzinger, Scott Douglas. I'm almost certain that some folk on here have followed that one to great success in the past.

Charlie - You'll have a great time. If there's a place to run slowly and enjoy the madness that's the very place to do it. Think I'm starting to suffer Disney Envy!

I've cancelled all birthdays too, as they seem to involve me getting older which is just depressing!

Charlie - Great news that you've got the ok for Disney!

TD - Knowing you you'll be back pushing your fitness boundaries soon enough.

Wait a minute. You're not supposed to be hanging on for grim life at the end! I knew I'd been doing something wrong all these years!

TD - Good to hear you're on your way back. Hope that it works out well for you in the long term this time.

Suze - Well done on giving up the cigarettes.

I'm back running and into training after six weeks of no exercise at all, partly due to being on holiday and partly because of a cold. I seem to have lost at least 99.9% of my fitness!

I managed to get my week 1 of training for Paris completed. My pace is absolutely horrific though and everything hurts. I'm trying to see starting off from an awful fitness base as a positive, as I've ran my best marathons when the first half of the training has gone badly!

I couldn't tell you the brand. If my memory is correct it was blue and tasted like liquid death!
