Lovely pics NP and superb running from both  you and buddy . 

MG1 nice progressive run , sounds hard work into the wind but it is surprising hiw you soon warm up , those bloody enforced rest days are annoying but you will be nice and bouncy the next time you lace up those trainers  

Tek great to see you continue to build back be sensible 

MG7 that sounds a seriously tough 19 miler ! very impressive I am hoping to get up to 19/20 before christmas 

Mace hello 

SC nice 5 recovery 

11.5 yesterday on tired legs not sure about today I have to wait in for the boiler repair man so doubt if I will get to my weekly body pump class , fingers crossed I will get out for a run before work tonight

Santa run for me today my first ever yes first ever 5k !! and i was first  lady ho ho ho ! official time was 23.03 but i had 22.50 on my watch not that i was taking it seriously of course   but ! my other half said hed give me £100 if i first first lady which looking at last years results i thought might be possible on a good day providiing no 5k specialists turned up ! at the 2 mile point i spotted just 2 ladies in front and i said to my brother who i was running with i will try and catch them , they then turned round spotted me me and waved recognising them both as younger faster girls from my club  i thought no chance ! but I caught them and got all competitive it hurt but i managed the last mile in 7.05 !   Dont think i will ever be first lady in a race again so savouring the moment lol !!

Good evening 

Been busy so not had much chance to post ! extra night shifts to help pay fior christmas  ! still managed to get plenty of running done , its all about priorities and time management , and catching up with soaps at silly times of the day lol ! I do manage to get things done , and never an excuse not run ! 

Fell over yesterday as you may have seen on face book ! which is turning into a bit if a joke ! my right  wrist has a niggle all the time now after numerous tumbles over  the years , I seem to go down on that side ! even dislocated a finger once , knees pretty batterd scarred  and bruised but hey ho ! a running pal discribed  me as bullet proof , its all pretty  superficial and doesnt stop me 

Tek , great to see you are better and slowly coming back 

Good solid  long runs SM6 and MG1 

SC hope the partying went well ! you have to live and it is possible to mix a few drinks with training occasionally  I do 

nice mix there NP running and swimming

OH , its always nice to have extra running pals ! nice training 

15 miles in 2.21 today after 3 hours sleep , had to get it done today as another full on week ahead

SM6 thats a very good 10k time you obviously have a good basic speed ! its there so when it comes to marathons you obviously lack in the amount of long runs you do , are you planning anither marathon in the spring ? 

NP good to see it was only a 24 hour bug 

MG7 good long run shame about the phone 

StewartC well done on the 10 I was lucky yesterday with the weather also 

Fiona take care you have a good marathon to look back on a rest is deserved  anyway , enjoy the bike 

MG1 nice pace for the 5 made all the more enjoyable in great weather

13 miles @9.30s ( with a hangover from my sisters birthday party  ) yesterday longest run since lochness , hard to imagine I will be back up to 20 milers again by christmas 

club later tonight

SM6 odd isnt it how sometimes even 4 -5 miles easy can feel hard , at least you got out there 

NP good news about the park run stuff , nice swim 

OH I guess its getting a little chilly for sea swims , will you venture in again ( thats probably a silly question 

StewartC the legs are bound  to feel tired ! mine are still a little tight after my 10 mile race 

11.2 miles @ 9.30 pace last night between shifts legs tired felt a struggle 

easy 5/6 later

OH thanks the prize giving was hilarious !! we got some great pics well done to Elspeth  well done on the sea swim and 7 miler ( rather you than me when it comes to the sea swim )
