Evening all

What nowt

Why see below

Lyrics probably not

None of my plans have come to anything and following a visit to the quack last night this year will be a write off. For some time I had been feeling aches and soreness following exercise whether delivery qat work or training. Eventually saw the quack and have now been diagnosed with a hernia. WL hough not life threatening I have been advised to have an operation given my job and hobbies but was told to lay off the running until after it has been sorted as it could make things substantially worse.

So thelong and the short of it is no Wokingham (MV40 place up for grabs) and a deferred VLM.

I shall continue to lurk on and off and jump back in once sorted.

Ta ta for now and cool runnings peeps

LMH at the moment I'm just planning on sightseeing this year at  VLM and maybe a bit of fundraising on the side. Though given my track record might be hard to convince people to part with cash for something already achieved.

What 8+ at lunch time

Why killing time for an hour

Lyrics no

Joe 100m weeks sounds a bit serious, what are your targets this year? Also go gently on the ankle don't rush back into things.

Emz sounds like you got by our race pretty much spot on judging by your targets.

As for me, things are still pretty full on work wise but I have a plan to train to. Almost bailed today with the freezing fog when I got up. Instead I made use of the dead time whilst pp no2 was at his French lesson by running out and back for an hour. Clocked slightly over 8 miles with a few sub7's mixed in. Nice to see that there's life in the old legs still! Downside is that I have gained about 5lb since the summer.

Anyway, cool runnings peeps.

GPS watch, advice needed for a new runner

I replaced my replaced my 405 with a 410 for £80 from eBay which came with an hr strap, spare wrist straps and all the other standard stuff.

Tomtoms are also a good option if you want a new one but can't afford a Garmin.

Morning all

What 10? 

Why to see what's in the legs

Lyrics no

Following a mental few weeks at work thought I should pick up the old shoes again. Still planning to run again in London but probably nowhere near my form of a year ago. I have Wokingham in about 6 weeks as a pre London yard stick to look forward to as well. 

Not really kept up with things so hello to all the relatively newer DTTers.

Nice to see Gobi back on his feet again

How's the shoulder LMH?

Birks guess you've been as busy as I have at Glasgow MC.

Evening all

What 4? Miles

Why couldn't sleep

Lyrics no

Not running much as I'm working crazy hours at the moment. Did manage a couple of runs the other week when I was on a training course in Bristol.

Birks are you still working at Glasgow MC?

LMH I wouldn't go back to what I was doing. The only downside is the lack of running though things at home are getting more complicated as the mini pp's are getting older. May be I'll have to settle to life as a fun runner for a couple of years!

Evening all

What 7+ early doors

Why seizing opportunities

Lyrics with Dustin, could be one of a number.

Wabo enjoy the bairn

Birks wait buntil December when the mail centers go mental!

LMH it is really great hearing your progress, just don't push things too hard!

Made it to club last Thursday and managed to keep up (just) with the fast group. The next few weeks look a bit tricky training wise but aweeks management course away from home could provide some useful run time.

What rest

Why off out in a bit

Lyrics no

Gobi, ever thought of a job with our lot as a stop gap. Seemed to work well for Marigold.

Clocked a straight 11 hour day and am off to the pictures in a bit so no time for running today. Day off tomorrow as well as club night so will be out again then.

Evening   all

What 7 with hills

Why empty house

Lyrics no

So nglad to start seeing some progress LMH all be it small sloiw gains. As the Raconteurs sing "steady as she goes".

So you wait 7 weeks with nothing in the offing then you get two days running turning up at once! Still struggling to find time between the family and work to go running. So after a couple of DNS's and half a stone heavier I'm trying to get backmnin the game while at the family is away for half term.
