reikirabbit - cheers! Sorry you missed your pool session. Hope the parcel arrived ok.
Ruth - wow, 8 jaffa cakes in an evening! Tim is a lucky fella indeed!
chickadeee - ha, yes I'm maybe aiming a little bit too high but I'm hoping that fortune will favour the brave. Being realistic I think it's out of my reach for the spring but it could be on in York in the autumn - we'll see.
I can't believe the conditions you end up having to run in! If it's not a howling gale then it's torrential rain or a blizzard. Do you live in the most weather deprived part of the world or what?
Mr P - sweet baby James, that sounds awfully nice (apart from the mushrooms - I hate those slippery little fellas).
Martin - lol, ah the memories come flooding back there. Mustn't move a muscle....don't even blink!
Take it easy on those 20's. Steve was saying on Tom's thread that the early ones are better kept slow (MP+1min say) and only look to build in some MP in the later ones. I should really have kept it at 8's all the way on mine.
Christian - take it easy. Don't push too hard. Good that you are seeking physio. Fingers crossed for you!
Tim - would be great to see you if you can make it up to Palace! Just choose a week where it's not 2K reps
Re. food I did indeed bring a few items with me to Paris. I took Weetabix and porridge for starters. Oh and syrup and sultanas too for the porridge. The rest I got when I was there. Ruth made sure my carbo load was bread, jam and fruit juice based so that was easy to pick up.
If you're in the same hotel (and I reckon you will be) then there's a huit a huit mini market round the corner where you can get supplies.
The rugby was not so great for me. Mrs Malcs was happy with a Welsh win but I can't believe we lost to Italy at the death. Gutted. We could have won all 3 of our games so far....sorry, Mrs Malcs is correcting me...apparently that's just 2 games we could have won
Update on the food. I just checked my packing list from Paris and there was more than that. Of course when you travel on the Friday you'll be carbo loading so you need to bring all the stuff you need to eat that day (except for dinner).
So I had with me:
1 x bagel and jam, Cooked pasta for lunch, 1 x slice malt loaf, 2 x 500ml fruit juice
Packed for the Saturday carbo load:
3x individual slices malt loaf, 1x bagel and jam, tube of weetabix, porridge, jam (could have picked that up at the breakfast buffet), 3 x Frijj milkshakes.
The milk, extra fruit juice, bananas and bread I bought while I was there.
