Wake up Westy, it's new thread day

Chick, you're a lunatic! A dedicated one, but quite mad

Overdone it?

I think you're right mcF. I definitely think some blokes are keen to be better than the nearest woman, even if sensible people would accept that there are already 100 women in front of them

Ooops, sorry Ramjet!  It was nothing personal - I just rather inconveniently keep having to do work at work instead of keeping up with the forum 

Chester was thoroughly pleasant!  Not a PB, but I hadn't trained for one so hardly surprising.  I ran the first half a little slower than 3:15 pace, then decided I was working too hard and wasn't enjoying myself, so slowed down for a comfortable 3:24 and really nice day out!  A PB at London is the plan for spring...

How's it going for you?  Ramping up a bit now?

Overdone it?

Mace, that sounds pretty serious.  It's good to hear you're mending though!  Not sure there'll be an awful lot of women beating you to be fair, so I can't imagine a chicking is something you have to deal with very often...

That's dedicated Lou, it was grim yesterday.  I managed a whole 4 miles, and that was quite enough, thank you.

McF, great muddy racing.  Sounds like a lot of fun to me.

Charlie, well done!  Sounds like a valiant effort.

Lit, boooo. You kind of have a bit of an indestructable air about your running, so it's odd to hear of you being injured.  I am sure you are being sensible though and will be swiftly fixed.  Hope so anyway!

I'm gently getting back to it after 3 weeks of major lurgy.  HR still rather too high and breathing is not right, but it's a relief to be back out and running, my brain doesn't work very well without it.  Must. Be. Patient.

Yup, do it Westy.  I will feel like I belong in that one, I've neglected this thread far too much.  And I'm very keen to leave this summer's running behind!

Westy's dog is one of the stars of this thread.  I love it to bits and I haven't even met it.

Chicksta, good on you challenging yourself.  I'm slightly dreading the Christmas party frenzy too.  I lost the half stone I have been carrying around for quite some time by being ill, and need to really work on keeping it off through the Christmas madness... 

Macca, no worries.  You'll get it done - I think people generally say that ultras don't actually need the kind of crazy mileage you expect - it's just about having a level of endurance that allows you to plod all day, which you'll have to an extent already having done the marathons.

Well toughed out Tom and SK.  I managed 4 miles in the hideous conditions and that was quite enough, thank you!

NE, well done on the 1000 miles  it is a satisfying number!

Scott, sounds like you're finding plenty of time for running.  Are you doing a spring marathon?

Hi folks, been awol a bit.  I'm planning to sit and type out my version of P&D 55-70 for London over the weekend (ie exactly what the plan says but on jumbled up days to account for my random working hours).  The summer was a bit shit on the running front, and I've had the last two weeks off with plague, so hoping that is it now and I can pick up some decent running again.  Three weeks to go before I can get my teeth into some training

Overdone it?

Looking buff there muddy.

I like Strava, but only for the stats geekery, I'm not in any way competitive with other people on there.  Well, except one, who gleefully once told me he'd taken one of 'my' segments (which I wasn't even aware existed) so promptly went and trounced him on that one.

DT (whispers...) sub 3...sub 3...
