MSC,  what was the offer ??

SB and Oscarr you two are too fit, stop all this working out and running and eat loads of cake !

Calf feeling better, did visit physio and it looks better than I thought.  I should be OK to cycle and do some stretching in a couple of weeks and then get back to running if all goes well.  I might still do Abingdon but with less running in my training and replace missing runs with cycling or a swim.

Catch up soon

Hi SB, good to see your alive !!

Great running Oscarr and Mike.

Not so good for me, done too much too soon and I am now paying the price!!  Calf strain, Abingdon is a NO NO now.  Got to rest up and then take it easy and get fit for 2014.

Take care all.

Hi Everyone...... !!   Its been too long.   How you all doing ?

Not had time to come on here for ages, been so busy building an extension, well project managing the building of an extension.  I have been getting my hands dirty and taking on lots of jobs to cut costs, getting out the other side now and I am back running!   I had not run since London Marathon and I have been out a few times in the last 2 weeks, missed it BIG TIME !

I am now training for Abingdon Mara and looking forward to getting fit and racing again.  I know Mike and Oscarr have fond memories of Abingdon, anyone else done it or doing it this year ?

Will do my best to pop up on here now I have my life back.

Sleepy, how was your run? Been at work today and didn't feel like a run when I got home, I will pop out tomorrow for 3/4 and then 9 on Sunday.

RR, so Pilates, have you been doing it a long time?? I done about 6 sessions of equipment based sessions, really enjoy it and loads more flexible.

Ten, famous at last !!

AC 8, good to see your back running. Interesting on the resting HR, I am the same as you at about 40 to 45, my doctor said mine was down to genetics, my sister and 1 of my brother is the same.

Been to Pilates tonight for another session, so so good. Before I started I couldn't touch my toes, I was about 6 inches away, now I can no problem !! Will be interesting to see if I benefit when I race from all the flexability I now have.

Hi Ten, its good to be back!  I think I needed some time off from running and running related stuff.  How are you doing Ten ?

As I said earlier I am training my sister and today was our 4th run together a nice and slow 8 miles @10 min pace.  She has been following a training plan I knocked up since mid November and is doing really well.  Will keep you updated on her progress.

Hi RR, hope you are doing well, hows running and life ?

Hapy New Year everyone !!

I have not even looked at since Christmas Day, I think my year of running and fundraising has been a bit of a drain on me. Being injured for 6 weeks has given me time to focus on other parts of my life and ignore all things running related.

At the end of November I did my final race (26th) a half in the New Forrest and I have been back running since the first week of January. I now do equipment based Pilates once a week which is really helping, which I had started sooner!

Just after I had to stop running I was the very happy winner of the Sport Personality of the Year 2012 in the Committment to Sport category. This was a real shock, but a fitting end to the year.

So 2013....... Well , a few things going on.......

Training my sister for her 1st Half Mara(Reading).

Project Managing a single story extension to our home. Will start beginning of May.

Go on holiday for 2 weeks in the sun!

Really busy at work but will try and make time to log on once every couple of days and catch with you all.

And Oscarr, coffee soon please ??

One last thing.....

Thanks to everyone who helped me, supported me, sponsored me or just showed an interest in "OlympicNick", for me it really was one amazing year and you guys were part of that, so thank you.
