I find the mud and road crap on the tyres add extra grip. Why do you have a car in your garage?

No worries Scott! Yes, everytime I go outside (not inside) for a run I have a huge grin, because I can.

No chance of running outside at 6am here in the snow and ice. Too risky.

Lack of noticing achilles was a few months back now, but thanks anyhow. Good reps (and you too CC82).

That is a long bike ride PMJ.

Me and my big mouth. Woke up to 4" of snow so used the hotel dreadmill for an hour easy run. Even with the windows open it was pretty hot and was getting towards HR limit.

Went to check on the track this evening in prep for tomorrow's 10x400 off 60s, and I find it buried under a large white blanket. Back on the treddie tomorrow then.

Bus/Ric I've dusted off the MyFitnessPal app again whilst travelling, to ensure that I don't eat too much crap.

Never been there! In the words of my daughter, "WelJel".

Yes PMJ, the ginger one is the one that parkrun are getting excited about.

Take it easy AG. I can identify with the constant worry about something hurting, and was really glad when I returned after a run and realised I had not thought about the achilles at all during the session.

A good result Simon, all things considered? Always risky to race when feeling shite.

Good mileage one and all.

I'm ensconced in the Liechtenstein alps. Tomorrow is 1hr easy so will see how the pavements are. A little bit of falling snow but so far all is clear and dry albeit well in to the minus temps. Wednesday AM is a track session; possibly the first time it will have been used this year.

Some great training paces and weekly mileage being thrown about.

10km easy today after the kids did their junior parkrun. There was a well know ginger-haired fellow stood off on the other side of the park whilst his kids ran too. They were left to enjoy their family day out and hardly anyone noticed him. I think he'd actually snuck out to see Dach's new wheels.

I cut yesterday's ride short. No road ice in the morning though I did almost slip over getting out the car. As the wind got up during the temps started to drop and ice started to appear again, so off to the cafe then home for some garage riding.

Wokey place turned down. It'd be asking for trouble.

Late to the party!

Good training all. Getting it done despite the weather.

Bus - beard is nothing like Johnas', just a poor man's attempt at not shaving since Xmas. It looks shit.
AG - running/walking maps seem to be common in the Germanic areas I have visited. Municipally signposted routes less so, but still noticeably present.

if ever there's an insight into the depth of your stalking! Be afraid runners, be afraid.

Two things:

1) stalking is against an individual and is persistent. If I fixated on Dachs and trawled his bins (hey, the council even publish bin collection dates online so I know what day to pop over) then that would be stalking: doing a one time google search on one person is not stalking

2) definitely be afraid. I guarantee that there is way more information about you online than you would ever think about. You want to scare yourself, go to

and enter your name and home town and see what it pops up. And of course, google indexes that so you can do it from your search bar.



I can't find me. What does that mean?

Yesterday was a rest day as hotel gym was closed therefore no bike. I was supposed to bike today but bogged down with work and haven't seen the kids all week. I should have just got up earlier! Leading the long ride tomorrow.

Catching up over lunch in Germany. You guys had me laughing so hard I choked on my sausage!

Ric - let it go now. It's not worth it

Easy 9km yesterday round the town orange (8.1km) running route; municipally signposted along with a 3.4km (red) and a 5km (blue) option. Dark and sleety. By the end I had frost in my beard and I felt like an explorer. I'd have appreciated a head torch, unsure of the side I should be on when running on a shared footpath in Germany.

Followed up today with a 9km progression run on the same route. Hopefully this will help my pacing and negative split aspirations. Still dark, but dry. Long tights and fleecy windproof top, buff and gloves. Probably a little warm but glad to have it for the cooldown and warmup.

No Wokey-Cokey for me. Pulled out last year and was offered a place this year but didn't take it up. No way was I going to record a slower time that 2 years ago.

Rob, was that Helsby? Seems a lot of disappointment but obviously the correct decision.
