Loula......Bet your wee pharmacy is the most efficient he has ever seen even though it was his worst nightmare........Think my leg will be okay for my race.. felt okay on my run today although i did tubigrip it just more for a comfort blanket really...did not think i needed it.....no running tomorrow just gym work and core and strength.....will do parkrun on saturday before I go to work in the afternoon.That will be my last seroius speedy run before the Race on the 4rth.......Will be mainly resting next week...............and carb loading LOL

Morning ALL,,

LOL loula you are so right that Our poor Matt is going to be reminded of his nortyness every week........Matt...Well done on your 11 mile cycle....

Chilli....What a busy day you had but so glad everyithing went well....I remember my neices at my dads funeral...exactly the same wanting to know what was inside and what actually happened afterwards...my little neice who was doing the offetory procession...well she skipped down the aisle and then skipped back up it...just such light relief on a stressfull day...it brought a  smile to everyones face...

Ecky......How did the results go?....we had that a few weeks back...My son got his higher results and did fairly well...he was a bit disapointed on one of his results but overall pleased......Wish he knew what he wanted to do with his life...He has went back for 6th year...its so hard to advise these days...and he is adamant that he does not want to go to Uni.....

Loula.....What you up to today?

AF...Any speedy running planned for today?? I just don't think I am cut out to go any faster now......we'll see!! Me and loula want to be able to catch you up...though i think that would probably be the death of me LOL

Day off for me today and have already been for my 5.5 miles...perfect running weather today again.....loving this weather we are having up here but sure it won't last....My leg pain seems to have subsided so thats good.....

Hi.....Jude.....Rachel.....DJ...................................Have a good day..............................

Ecky..That is sooooo annoying about the docs....know exactly what you mean...all that worry for nothing but as long as you are feeling fit and healthy thats the main thing....Did not want to put you off the 10k run but i just know what i am like with races and know i need to rest before it..i am not one of those people who can run and give there all at all times.....Shame its not 2 weeks before or even the week or so after.....Maybe you can lok into doing it next year instead.....so many race now aren't there??? and its nice to do the ones near to home too....

really must get of this lapto now and get ready for work LOL

Ecky...our posts must have crossed................bet you felt that was a complete waste of your time and theirs.....Seriously though do you feel as if your low in iron????? If you do think you lack iron I would insist on a proper blood test to test for low iron...

  Just to avoid any confusion guys...My Half Marathon is not this Sunday but the one after......sorry if I have confused anyone as some of you thought I was doing it this Sunday....              

 AF...... If I drank wine on the way round a race I don't think I'd ever finish it never mind doing it in under 2hrs....You are a speedy chap......were you always naturally speedy or did you have to work at it?????

Ecky....Entering a 10k race before the Great North..............mmm All depends on what you want out of the race................Are you using it as a tempo training run or are you after a PB and running your heart out???????I suppose if you did do it you probabaly would rest up that week??? Personally though and just cos I know what i am like I would want to give it all in the race then I would be spending the rest of the week worrying that I have nothing left to give in the next race....LOL Dilemmas dilemmas.....

I have decided that because of my leg niggle thing......I will not be doing any more running after my short run tom and parkrun on Saturday.......well I will see how even that works out...but defo no running next week so as I am fresh for the race.....

Byee off to work again......off tom and Friday thank goodness..............

Hi Guys.........

Matt... I haven't done the HM in Glasgow before but did the 10k part of it last year.It sort of the same course but a bit longer....well it would be wouldn't it or it wouldn'tt be a half.....ha ha....it still has the big hill at the start though which I am not looking forward to...my 2.06 was in PRAGUE.....in April and I did a 2.07 split during my marathon in May.... Well a week come sunday it will be all over and then am looking forward to my holiday......As for spinning...I have done it before...it all depends on the instructor really but it is a really good workout......

Ecky...hope you get on okay at the Docs and enjoy your wee run today......Don't think I will be doing much now before the race a week on Sunday...have got a wee niggly pain down the front left of my thigh so will need to take it easy and hope its not something sinister.....will try a short run tom and see how it goes..

Chilli.....your camping sounds fun...hope all goes well today for you all.Thinking of you...

Rachel..That recipe book sounds interesting..hope you will share some of them with us.....

Hi.....Loula....AF.....Jude....Spartak...Smut and DJ.....hope your running injury free now......

Have a nice day.......

Hey Loula.....it was a cool morning and dry....just perfect running weather really with a slight breeze...so no excuses for bad running....LOL....The weather was scorching up here at the weekend too.....I have got tan lines from when we were sitting out on Saturday sipping vino........Must say I was glad I wasn't running although don't really mind it hot and sunny...better that than the cold rain and wind....

Enjoy your day off Loula,,,,shame its raining...it is coming our way by tom I think and thats why i did my 13.5 miler this morning...LOL.Tom will be a gym session and a wee bit of treadmill running....

Just wondering if I should be properly tapering this week or do you think next week will be okay...???Planning on a short 5.5 miles on Thurs and Parkrun on Saturday.....so that means my outside mileage for this week would be...22miles with 4 probqbly on the treadmill making it 26 miles....Next week no long run maybe 2 short 5milers????? What do you guys advise.....Is that too much mmmmm Think maybe I will just do the 1 .......oh I dunno....help......yep just the one as i want fresh legs for the race....

i am not doing parkrun the day before the race but will be a volunteer and my duties are......TAILRUNNER..... LOL....hope there will be the usual slower runners that week as don't want to be gusting a butt chasing them fast ones...LOL Think i will be okay the last runner usually comes in about 35-40 mins.....

Speak later freinds.........better get ready for work and hoping its not goona be too busy...I like busy but just not mega busy.....LOL......may get a chance to log on later if i have a quiet spell.......
