It's nearly home time- hurrah.  It looks like I am out on a route recce tomorrow, so no lie in for me.

Hope- fingers crossed for you on continued rehab on the calf.

It normally does Seren, but the exceptional snow in the US seems to be a combination of very cold winds and warm great lakes- so if the weather does its usual West to East I guess we'll get the cold without the snowstorms.

Debbo- proper studded tyres, just chunky tread or something else entirely?

Morning all,

hope you have a quieter decorating day today Mrs F- I see from other sources THO's tea brewing skills have been maxed out.

I notice that New York state seems to have been deluged with snow, hopefully Debbo has not been snowed in, but I guess we might be in for much the same when that particular weather front hits us in a couple of weeks.

Are you channeling Hancock Dave?  The first of the lost shows showed up in my BBC feed a couple of weeks back http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04ly3xv.  Quite accurate impersonations apart from the Sid James-a-like who was no where near close.

Hope you're feeling better soon Seren.

Afternoon all,

top decorating there Mrs F (apart from the pipe thing- hopefully it's a closed circuit system so only a fixed amount of water to dribble out).

Well run Seren

More top biking from Hope

Greetings to FlaFo

I had longer hair in the 80s will see if I can dig out some examples.  My very first gig at Yew-ni was Blancmange, I didn't know that the band didn't come on immediately after the doors opened and so had to drink beer until they showed up. I was rather wobbly by that stage.

Ooh what you studying Rio?

I have had my attention drawn to a precis of the 50 shades books (well the first two), first episode http://redlemonade.blogspot.ie/2012/06/fifty-shades-of-tedious-fuckery-vol-1.html?m=1.  My productivity has not been great this afternoon.

I reckon you could make a claim for homeopathic training Dave.  The steam molecules in the room were probably vibrating sympathetically with those in the water, thus imparting to your limbs a micro-stimulation of the swimming muscles.

'lo everyone, looks like they've fixed the site then.

Happy anniversary to Caz and Smiffers, have a lovely break.

Seren, I'm remembering now the post event write ups- paths transformed into mini-streams.  I even seem to remember you actually put a coat on at one point.

Top training Hope and good luck with the shopping.  I suspect I will mostly be online shopping but will no doubt have to have a conversation with the bank as not using chip and pin=cause for belief that card has been nicked=transaction declined.

I qualify for the muppet of the day award, running kit packed for a commute home tonight, but no head torch.  D'oh. 

Running Watch Help please!!

Well DC seems to rate it (Forerunner 220) as being a good bit of kit.  I've got an older Garmin and have been happy with that, but if you do a search on Garmin you will find a recent thread where someone hasn't had such a good experience with the brand.
