Hello MC and AF

AF Pleased your running going in the right direction but go easy. Enjoy parkrun on Saturday .

Mathschick The concerts sound wonderful  Enjoy your spa break and get pampered. I know its so mild The temps are crazy below freezing one minute then into double figures Bizarre

I have track session tonight which I look forward to and dread  in a weird sort of way LOL

And tomorrow our company flies us down to London heathrow to the Sofitel hotel for our Christmas party. Looking forward to it  Going to get nails done this afternoon and think I will go for sparkly gold

Cannot believe that 1 week today is Christmas Day  Love the build up to it over the next few days even though I will be working right up to Christmas Eve at 10pm. Hopefully it won't be too busy.

AF Pleased your wife's operation went well and hope your leg will be better soon. Just try to build up slowly again whilst you are off. Plenty of time to pick up speedy runs once you are back out there again.

MC Hope the concerts go well. Do you have to go to them all?

I did 5 miles this morning and a interval treadmill session yesterday which was suggested to me by the track coach.

YES its very sad that this thread seems to be coming to an end. Not sure why it has. Don't know where everyone has gone or are still even running apart from Loula and Jude and us 3. Not sure about Deejay either  

However If you 2 are up for it we can still post here as I would miss you guys. I know we are friends on facebook but folk get fed up if all your posting is about running and you cant just write stuff that you can on here.

SO lets keep the old thread going as it is with no 2015 update. What do you think ?

Oooooooooo where is everyone...busy I expect

Mathschick you sound extra busy well done on getting run and swims in.

Erm the last runners time was 3.20 Not got a problem with people wanting to complete a HM but not wise to choose a Club hill run in extreme weather for a very 1st one. And as the club organizing it we felt a responsibility to her to get her to the end but oh I was so so cold at the end of it MC..took me about 3 hrs to warm up again HA Ha

Been out a wee 7 miler very early this morning but still icy in parts so went gingerly.One of our club members had a nasty fall at parkrun on Saturday as it was icy and has fractured his wrist in 4 places and needs surgery Ouch

Hope everyone is well

AF Did your wife get her operation last week and how is your injury ????

Hellooooooooooo everyone

Back from my chilly brrrrrrrrr freezing  windy conditions with hail ,snow and sunshine 7 res HM as tail runner...or should that be tail last runner home was a novice runner and her 1st HM ever but crazy to do such a challenging race as her 1st event as its very challenging course and entry clearly states not suitable for novice runners .Well done to her for finishing it but the poor marshalls were frozen to death standing about waiting. At least I could keep moving of sorts and keep warmish although my feet were like ice blocks LOL.Anyway job done and enjoyed my day out in the beautiful hills.

Well done on your run AF and all the best for your wife for Tuesday...fingers crossed.

Yes Mathschick make sure you are happy with the repairs especially as it is such a new car. I remember a long time ago now when I got my 1st new car A lil red mini (the classic old style) Loved that wee car until some idiot ran into the side of it. I never felt the same about it again especially as they did not repair the door right and it leaked if you put it through a car wash or if it was heavy rain at a certain angle.

Well I have lost my voice and have a jaggy throat..fingers crossed I will be okay to tail run tomorrow as don't want to let the club down especially as I was given the vlm place. At least I don't have to run fast.

Waiting on new washing machine arrival...will be so pleased to finally get the washing done at home

Mathschick Oh how awful but the main thing is that you are okay but annoying about your car.

AF Pleased you are being sensible and you will be back running your best in no time at all. Remember I had 2 and half months of not being able to run with my Achilles injury and now I feel I a much stronger..touch wood  Good news about Mrs AF and fingers crossed for Tuesday

Afternoon All

Well Hello Loula sis...So happy you have rejoined us..Its been very quiet without you  When is your Thames Trot ?

AF Delighted that you have a place for VLM   But hope you get that leg of yours sorted out. Am sure with a bit of rest you will be back fitter and stronger..just needs a little patience am afraid. I know only too well....Oh and give Mrs AF my regards and hope she gets her operation soon. Its such a pain that they can just cancel like that especially as she was almost in the operating theatre.

Mathschick Yay you have fond your MOJO...great stuff

We had a brill weekend in Holland Was nice to be waited on and too do just what we wanted with no time constraints. Need to plan the next one our weekends away together

This Sunday is our running clubs 7 reservoirs Half Marathon Race..which you would love Loula and AF as you have seen some of the route.But unfortunately I didn't manage to enter it in time BUT ALL IS NOT LOST...I am going to be 1 of the tail runners get to run it but have to deal with any emergencies if they occur and get to be LAST home   which to be honest I would not be far off Ha ha Ju7st hope the weather is nice and bright and not rainy and too muddy.
