selbs - You've deserved all that eating and drinking!  Onwards and upwards.

Keith - I'm a spring chicken when it comes to our vets!  Keep an eye out for some Kent AC V50s, you could have a good scrap.

In all seriousness, I intend getting some serious miles in over December, but Xmas day is one day I plan on being far too hungover to consider a run.  With that proviso, I might actually give this a go.

Do we get to eat a really small piece of chocolate at the end of each run?

Black Friday

Fucking muppets...


“I got a Dyson but I don’t even know if I want it. I just picked it up,” Louise Haggerty, a 56-year-old hairdresser and waitress, said of her 1am trip to the Black Friday sales. “It was mental in there. It was crazy. It was absolutely disgusting, disgusting.”

Oops, I meant...    I'd be interested to see what my HR gets up to during a proper hard spinning class these days, but I don't currently have a HR monitor on the go.  Ne'er mind.  

Winter training must haves!

Asked if wintery conditions were unusual when coming into winter they said: "No".


This thread's a good reminder.  I need to get some merino wool glove liners to go under my lobster mitts.  Should keep the Raynaud's at bay when it gets proper perishing.

Nice riding Padams.  The last time I cycled 100 miles I had a big tail wind behind me all the way from Felanitx back to Port De Pollensa.  Maybe my lunch would've kept you going that bit longer.


Jools - A marvellous set of PBs including an impressively non-Bubkaesque marathon time hammering.  I'm very pleased to have PB'd from 5k - marathon distance this year but you've done most of the ones in between as well.

Whatever virus/lurgy I had definitely feels like it's stopped affecting me day-to-day.  The cross country race on Saturday wasn't much fun, but I got round.   At that stage my lung capacity definitely still felt restricted and I couldn't do much about a few club mates overtaking me whom I'd normally beat, but I was pleased to be getting back to it and I did actually make the scoring team.  Anyway, since then I've been either running or spinning (or both) every day.  I have a low-key 10 mile off-road race on Sunday (Pirie 10, Farthing Downs) which I wouldn't be hitting 100% anyway since it's the Kent County Vets' XC six days later and we always target that.  So I'll be on for about 55 miles for the week including effectively a hard tempo run, plus 3 spin classes.  So hopefully back up and running full-steam next week.  :y

Ric, I was thinking about this over a lunchtime run.  It's supposedly illegal to handle a salmon "in suspicious circumstances".  Sounds a bit fishy to me... surely doing something suspiciously should just alert the authorities to investigate further, i.e. to see if those suspicions are confirmed.

I should be a fish lawyer!
