Nice work too Padams.  Love the Santa stuff.

Equally so CW - your fb race reports are always a good read!

OO!!  Welcome back.

Super stuff TR, glad to see the miles coming back.  Slowly, slowly, catchy monkey though.

Good racing PP and ES.

A weekend on the lash with he of the short legs and multi-coloured Mohawk and Caz.  Many pints and German sausages were consumed.  Possibly too many.  So not too many miles, although a late night test run with the new headtorch - really superb lighting/beam, but needs a wee bit of adjustments to make it more stable.  Battery may be an issue, but for an hour in the pitch black along the canal/unlit cycle path/trail/etc, £10.49 is a very fair price.

Only interesting stat I have is that this morning's commute run took me to EXACTLY 3000miles for the year.  And I mean, EXACTLY.  Wasn't even planned.

PP - no thanks, you can keep it, you're very welcome

LD - welcome back matey.  WE just need njord, Gold Rush, Crab, Gobi and Dull to come back.  Amongst others.

CW - I had one of those, but it's not bright enough for the night-time trail running I will (hopefully) be doing.  Same with a Silva Trail Runner.  This new one looks the dogs, but due to arrive tomorrow.

TT - what others say - NICE mileage!

ES - good targets, enjoy!

How do you know you're neutral if you haven't been running since the ops?  Your gait may have changed.  Get yourself to a good independent running specialist for a full gait analysis and advice.

CD - stop it, you'll let all the proles in   (that's a joke, as per other places, all welcome here - both those offering and those seeking inspiration)

Excellent racing all - my (and Alan's) 5 mile race on Saturday was cancelled due to severe ice on the course.  Apparently.  Could have done a charity half/10k on the Sunday instead (and likely would have "won" either too), but Mrs RB's car has been on the blink and we decided to go and get a new one instead of racing.  Then met up with LS21 late in the evening as he popped up for a visit.

A decent run over the weekend - 11M with 10@sub3 pace, solo, which is always a good indicator of general fitness levels, so quite happy with that.  First double commute run today - 9M am, and about to do the run home now.  New headtorch ordered for these late dark runs.  A cheapo off ebay, but my mate has one, and it seems good.  If ok, I'll report back here.

Morning all.

Corking tready sesh SL. 

Congrats on the impending arrival TR - lab or spaniel would be my recommendation. 

Alan - see you there, if it isn't cancelled due to the weather.

In other news, I am moving office (same job role), which will make life easier cos it's much closer to home, and means no driving, so the inevitable 6M double commute run Mon-Fri, adding in a weekend long run should start to give me some decent mileage (guessing 80mpw) again, and get me in decent shape again. (he says hopefully, knowing that in actual fact he's old and fat, and doesn't really put much effort into any run at all)

Welcome back TJK, I remember you I think, although old age is getting the better of me!  Great shape, and the running sounds fantastic there!

Dan - flips sake man!  Nae luck after a great build-up.  Maybe a virus/bug brewing?  Recover well!

Morning all

Good racing folks - I had intended blasting a parkrun, but pretty much all of Glasgow was an icerink on Fri and Sat (I was like Bambi on my Fri "easy" jog, and ended up stopping after 2M and heading back), so only 1 out of 8 local-ish events was on, and by the time I worked out which one, I'd missed the travel time. 

So a minimal mileage week for me, less than 50.

Every cloud and all that - being stuck in the house, I went online and got most of my Xmas shopping done
