Swittle, DD, JT- impressive mileage in these conditions

Me- it's Monday evening, so it was the usual hills

swittle- my friend who I run with on a Thursday is an ex elite marathoner, and has been running for over 40 years. She has always told me that excretion of bodily stuff (snot, sweat etc) during running is a sign of good health too, and that it maintains strong immune system as it expels all the toxins.  

JT- We all look glam in a sweaty vest. NOT! Pimms is lovely with lemonade and a bit of fruit /veg stuff (makes it healthy ) it has a reputation for being a posh person's drink, but I'm really not all that posh, born and bred in East London :-/

Birky, I miss having a canine friend to walk with, even 6 years after our golden retriever died

Leigh- welcome

Me- another hot and sweaty outing at a very slow pace, around 7 miles this morning.

JT - not a good enough excuse- I expect to see evidence!  especially having had a butchers at those star trek type folk wearing one on google images. And birky, once you dig yours out  

Today was my last Friday long run until September when the kids go back, so I took one for the team and went out in the 33 degree heat.  It was rather warm :-/ so I took it very slowly and easy, managed 11 miles and felt like I'd had a really proper workout.  Now I am rewarding myself with a delicious Pimms in the back garden. My favourite part is eating the Pimms infused fruity bits at the end.

Have a good weekend of running all

Great running all- DD, Lily, JT, birky, strangely and all

I did a league race with the club tonight, Ilford Hilly 5 mile (the clue's in the name), cross country and fairly pretty. Bloody HOT!  I was pleased with my time- around 42.30 I think, considering how warm it was

Nice work all

Me- last night, 7 miles through new territory- Hainault Forest.  It was OK, nice bit of cross- country.

Today no running but took a lovely bike ride down the River Lea and Grand Union Canal to London Fields lido for a great outdoor swim in their lush pool, and cycled back.  Long term plan is formulating.  After next year's 26.2, I am really set on trying a sprint tri.

Yeah I did Bishop's Stortford 10 mile a few weeks ago, and after announcing the ban on MP3 / headphones at the start, one woman did exactly what you've described and played her shit Take That music out loud.  I was INCENSED!  Needless to say, so was everyone else, and apparently a marshall told her to SHUT the F**** up fairly early in the race.  Is this a new thing? I've never come across it before?  Teenagers on the bus is one thing, but a grown adult!?

-- and on farting, I have no control over that, I'm afraid

am pleased to see you share my mature sense of humour DD- and that you pointed it out before I did

Me- started my Sunday with hills- 8 reps of the usual hill.  Great way to start the day. No rats.

JT- cool garlic story.. will follow with interest to see if it works!!?  And also Strangely's custard remedy...

Down here in London, the weather conditions are very conducive to a wet and muddy run through Epping Forest, so I duly went for my 10 mile Friday outing with my friend this morning, sloshing through the paths and bogs.  The thick forest bits were absolutely full of enormous RATS which scare the bejesus out of me (I'm pretty tough about most things except rats and cockroaches).  So we took a diversion up to Wanstead flats on the edge of the forest, which is nearly as pretty and definitely less ratty.  Got a bit lost Saw more super sized rats on the way back. Put the world to rights.  Got soaked to the skin, mashed up legs with brambles, covered in mud. All round a fantastic run

JT I dread to think what you've been poking in your ear .. and I like it when squirrels look squirrelly

Swittle- awesome pic!! Am very jealous of your runs

DD- nutter. That is all

Me- last day of term YAAAY!  Whilst my colleagues celebrated by getting w*****ed, I went with the club for a 5.5 mile run through the forest.  I'd had 3 glasses of wine as well-- it was kind of fun

Hope you feel better soon JT.. Nice running as ever swittle.  The coast sounds beautiful.

Me- watched the Tour this afternoon on Lea Bridge Road in Leyton.  Boss let us out early on account of le Tour being at the end of the road.  Great fun  Then 7.5 miles this evening in the cool with a friend. Excellent day all round really
