I did a 30 minute tempo at lunch and as i was, ahem,  mounting the top of a hill, two senior ladies were in front of me and as i passed them ( puffing away like a train ), one gasped in shock and said " oh, i thought that was a horse "

All sorts of 'Inbetweeners' gags rattled through my brain but i eventually responded with a polite laugh and a " have a nice day "

Have you watched ' Catastrophe ' on C4 catchup (or something like that) Sounds like you'd enjoy it, had me literally in tears at times.

I thought it didn't count as a long run unless it was more than 17?


hmmm, i expect you're correct ....  let's say 2 hours is a long run in which case

That's actually made me LOL and my wife shouted downstairs " what's so funny ?" I'm so uncultured that The Inbetweeners is in my all time top 3

DT- yes, WHU. It was my son's first visit to Anfield and both our phones died before we went into the ground so he was distraught that he couldn't get any photos. Fortunately we were 6 rows back, right behind the goal so we're on MOTD a few times which made up for it

McF - I ran out of steam at about 8, was fucked at 10 and despite being a stubborn old sod I couldn't make it into a proper long run of 16 so stopped at 15 and walked the last 3 miles as my legs were shot. And I was getting a few twinges that felt like my hamstring was going to pop

The thought of your piss boiling and making 2 cups of tea this morning is playing merry hell with my imagination.

I've forgotten how many cups of tea i've made this morning. I had a bet with a colleague and lost so now i'm her tea bitch for the whole week. She can drink tea for England so i'm getting enough exercise to maybe skip my run this evening.

Well done on the 10k Skinny and also muddy and Lit. And that's a fine MP run, McF.

I was going to do 18 yesterday but it turned out to be a bit of a disaster and i only just scraped a 15. It probably didn't help that i was in Liverpool on Saturday for the football so the 18 hour round trip, a skinful of ale and 4 hours kip played havoc with my ability to put one foot in front of the other.

McF, you're a dick You know the rules about measuring your fitness off the back of ONE run.  At least you got out there, unlike yours truly who wimped off to the gym for the first time in 4 months to use the treadmill. 10k and it was bloody hard work at 11km/h !!

Last night was much better despite it being extremely windy. I did a progressive 14M @ ave 7:43/M ( HR 137bpm which equates to almost top end easy ) Compared to the same run last year 7:18/M ( 135bpm ) so despite being a blubber monster at the moment (a good stone heavier) i appear to only be about 30-35 seconds down ( 1bpm = 3 or 4 seconds per mile ). Lose that stone and i shouldn't be far off which is bizarre having missed so much training !!

And yes, Skinny, i also know the rules about measuring fitness off one run

Good session again DT and nice to see muddy doing a bit

Last year i did 20miler at something like 7:05/M which turned out to be about MP + 30. It wasn't particularly nice in the last few miles even with company.

I imagine MP +15 will be a bit of a stinger


EDIT : HA, BUSTED !!! Skinny strikes again

McF hope you're better soon.

Lou - well, i'm guessing it should be 3:20 for me this year. I believe last year's run gets me in for VLM16 and VLM17. And although i'll only be 49 this April, by VLM18 i'll be V50. So in theory that means i'd have qualified for VLM17 twice if i do a 3:20 this year ?
