Afternoon everyone,

Ecky - Sorry to heare your sad news. My thoughts are with you and your family.Take Care and big hugs to you all.

Chilli - Well done on your 12 miles of hills and parkrun this morning. What parkrun do you go to????

AF - You will beat 1.45 for a HM no problem.

Spartak  - Good luck with the race. We will be cheering you on.

Welcome to Hannah - Hannah I sometimes run on the treadmill- well last year ran more on the treadmill than on the road but now i really love running outside and only use the tready for short interval sessions. It is a god send in Winter if weather really bad. I kno that level 10 on the treadmill equates to 6km/hr and 11 is 5.27km/hr. Hope that helps get things into perspective.

Loula - You will so easily do a sub 2hr HM and I am hoping for the same. Mine starts with abig hill LOL but okayish after that I think. We will do it Ickle Loula

Saz - Good to hear from you again.You have been very busy and hope you find time for running soon.

I have been to parkrun this morning and was faster again than last week so another seasons best for me. Woo Hooo Beating my PB from last October seems to be more in my sights now

Hellooooooooooooo everyone else and happy running today.

Good morning one and all.

How are we all on this lovely Friday??

No running for me today - just another gym session. Probably go to Parkrun tomorrow.

Joe - Thats a fantastic HM time.I did a HM in Prague in April as part of my training for the marathon I did in May. it was a very busy congested course but managed it in 2.06. Got a similar time on the split in my marathon so hoping to get a sub 2hrs in September. 

Helloooooooooooooooooooo everyone else have a smashing Friday folks.

how was gym franny?..we have a gym just round the corner from the house , and as its an army gym my membership fee is non-existent..i really have no excuse NOT to go..but some of those boys can be really intimidating-lol..superfit, although i think i could give them a run (scuse the pun) for their money on the treadmill

Loula - my gym session yesterday was good and consisted of weighted squats,weighted lunges,bosu squats,upper body weights and some abs and core finish off an intervaal session on the treadmill.

You should get yourself down to that gym I am sure you will be a big hit with the guys and am sure you could pick up some good exersizes.

Morning Folks

And here was me thinking I was a nutter. LOL mmmmmmmmmmmmmm Ironmans and ultras OMG Hee Hee  I am wiv you Loula i so can't really swim very well so i would be a dreadful contestant. Would rather run any day of the week and yes i can cycle burt not that fast either.Good luck Chili - that is a challenge and a half. Big respect.

I have a marathon that will be up our street. It will suit us vino peeps.Marathon du Medoc.

As part of training you have to drink wine every night so as you get used to it and they have wine tasting and food along the way. In your goodie bag at the end you even get given abottle of vintage wine. This years theme is animals. Apparently everyone does it in fancy dress and its a party atmosphere from start to finish, no one is interested in a PB or so they say. You have to finish it in 6hrs 30 mins. Sounds mad doesn't it. Wine drinking and running  

Went out early this morning and did 5.5 miles in 47.15mins and rain stayed off so that was a bonus.

Off with No 1 son to go see my Mum today.

Have a nice day eveeeeeeryyyoooone.
