Meldy, I'm talented enough to have non-seasonal rhinitis which means I get flare ups across the year.  Haven't got a clue what might have triggered this, but it's full on eye drops, nasal spray and anti-histamines.

Although it was the wrong result the AUS vs WAL was a cracking match.

Morning all,

itchy eyes this morning, will need to venture out at lunchtime for more eye drops. Must have them in tip top condition for Kona stalking at the weekend.

Curiously I've just finished listening to the latest marathon talk, the interviewee  (http://www.docparsley.com/) was talking about the importance of sleep.

How much running are you doing at the moment?

Have a read/lurk/post on the sub-3 thread, which is chock full of quick and talented runners.  A number of them have had success following the Pfitzinger and Douglas advanced marathon programs.

Morning all,

one of my more surreal work experiences was holding a meeting in an open plan office at a foreign branch of Pedigree pet foods and being brought to a complete standstill by the sight of a cat strolling along the top of the desk partitioning.  Said cat being part of the in-house testing team.

From all accounts the IT team found them a bit of a headache as they liked curling up on top of the lovely warm laser printers- printers and stray fur is not a good combination.  

Falling over whilst running! Anyone else?

I regard it as a bit of an occupational hazard.  The last few times I've been able to identify the culprits- tree roots, unevenness in the pavement or foreign objects on the footpath.  I've got a very low recovery stride (which gets worse when tired).

Afternoon Wingers,

looks like 2016 is shaping up to be a busy one for you Meldy. Where do you find your prospective lodgers?

Nearly time to break out the thermals Debbo? As I was r*nning home from work last night I was thinking it's about time to get the winter running kit out.

Fingers crossed everything goes smoothly with the new abode Dave.

Have you fully settled into the new job Mouse or is it the puppy (lurcher?) that is the cause for the exhaustipation?

Seren, good to see you're not letting the grass grow under your feet.

Schmunks- I'm impressed with your sock knitting, it's one of (many) life skills I don't possess.

I've been enjoying the virtual holiday with the Funkin's, it reminds me it's been a long time since I've been diving.

Mouse's avatar reminds me that I've still not caught up with the new DangerMouse- it's got some very good reviews.

I've got the office to myself this afternoon, so I might indulge in a little music while numbercrunching.

Andrew Kingston wrote (see)


have entered ballot a number of times now without success - but not sure if 5 times or more - is there anyway of finding out?


Andrew- they grandfathered, then retired the '5 times in a row and you're in' rule some years ago so your question is moot.

Sorry to hear about your Mum's cat Melds, but it sounds like a grand old innings.

Schmunks, I don't know whether Mr B thinks that by stepping down it would be some sort of admission of guilt?  What's on the knitting needles at the moment?

I'm a little miffed that the TdF isn't coming back to London.  Quite why talks should have failed at such a late stage is baffling.  Was Boris trying to twist ASO's arm to get a cheaper deal?
