Who else gets up at stupid O clock to run ??

Running in the rain seems like a really bad idea from indoors, but once actually in it, it is fantastic!

Alarm went off at 5.30 - checked my phone and my running buddy had backed out.  Still ran for 3 miles along the canal with a head torch.  Bit scary and it made me run 20 seconds a mile quicker!  I too CJ and mathschick suffer from a dodgy knee which complains about running down hill....

May well hop on this thread if there is room for an extra one?

Up at 5.30am and out the door at 6 for short runs of 3 miles at the moment.  Definite drop in temperature this morning but the stars were beautiful.

Wow, this thread is buzzing. 

Quick tidy up of the house here this morning, sort out car insurance then off for a run.  It is possible to train for a marathon in 2 weeks, yes? 

Lots of talk of healthy eating, it is so obvious and yet the hardest thing to maintain.  At the moment I am balanced.  So stuffing, no starving.  All is good in the world.

Thinking I should set a goal for London.  Jonnie you are quick.  I would be wrapped with anything less than 4.55!

Hi apps, as SL said so lovely to see you post. Huge congrats on the park run and the stopping drinking since July.  Don't be a stranger, keep in touch either here or FB.

As SL is saying, not content with being rubbish over short distances, we are looking to extend our complete lack of ability to 50 miles next year.  

As for me I picked up a drink after over 5 years sobriety.  Lost the plot completely for a while, but am somewhere in the ballpark of normal again!

Oh, and I got into London through the ballot which made me stupidly happy.

Sinbad - I am in France skiing at the moment.  Used to get arsed on these holidays.  Now I don't, and I watch others lugging their beer and wine into their apartments and don't feel any envy.  Nothing changes unless you want it to change.  If you don't want a boozy time, then don't drink, it is simple. x
