Good luck to your son Jude I am sure he will be fantastic. Jude I am sure the treadmill will be calibrated fine if its in the fitness centre.You could do a mile trial once every so often to see how you have improved and that way you are comparing like with like and it will improve your outside running too. I do quite a bit of my interval work on the treadmill because its easier to track that way plus I just hate running on treadmill without a goal in mind.

Hoping the rain stays off for hill run.

Erm I have just booked tickets to go to Lisbon in October for the Rock and Roll Half Marathon on 5th October

Isn't it time these santa hat smilies should be gone ??????

AF You will certainly be able to keep up with me I can't keep up those paces up in the hills HA ha. Hope you get a better sleep tonight and get your 1st run in of the year.

Just in from doggy walk and seen a really bad house fire. Not  a good start to their year. Not sure if anyone was in the house or not ? Flames were coming out of the top window and the air around is filled with big black smoke.

Morning all and a big welcome to Tracey and nice to see Nandy and Loula return. I do wonder how our lovely Deejay is getting on and hope we here from him soon.

No running for me today Just some doggy walking.

AF That's great you have booked your trip for Edinburgh. What date did you want to run as you said in your post the 27th or 27th  Let me know and I can arrange my day off accordingly and we can have a nice run in the hills.

Mileage challenge am not sure what I should aim for. Yesterday I did Mile 1 in 7.40 and mile 4 in 7.49.

Hope everyone has a good day and speak later

Nice to here from you Mrs Noel Sounds like you have been very busy.

MC Hope you get out your run later.

Jude Well done on your quick 6 miles. Good resolution to keep you motivated so nothing boring about that at all.

I am back from my Promathon 1st race of 2014. 400 runners took part. Not got official time as yet but my Garmin says 32.11 which I am very pleased with as I predicted 35 mins. Was perfect running conditions for it.

My resolutions erm not really got any but just to e healthy with no injuries and to get PBs in my HM distance and 10k Distance so a sub 1.50 half and a sub 50 10k

Hope everyone had a good time last night if they were partying. We are off to the In laws for New Years Dinner.

Have a nice day everyone.
