Amazing celeb stories and updates from birky- keep em coming

Me- an hour and a half at sunset through Epping forest this evening with my friend. My favourite type of running, despite the short detour to the pub toilet on the edge of the forest due to a poorly timed late tea  Garmin messed up and told me we did 4 miles. I suspect it was a little more than that

Hills tonight were good- faster than they have been for a month or more.  Must be cos it was a bit cooler.  That or the huge quantities of fish n chips / cake / ice cream / cider I consumed over the weekend

Birky-- I saw Daley Thompson at a Sport Relief event a few years back and I didn't get to speak to him but he seemed really friendly, and what a sportsman

Lily- my holiday running wasn't nearly as exotic as yours, a 6 ish mile morning jaunt with my brother down a short section the North Norfolk coast was about it for the weekend...still nice though and a great weekend- there were 12 of us and plenty of those were kids so not restful but loads of fun

Have a great holiday Lily

Nice nature spotting all

Me- a truly hardcore tempo session with the club through the forest.  Hot of course and felt like a real workout.

Off to Norfolk tomorrow morning for a long weekend in caravan.  May try to sneak in a run or two

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
