He's a good pro is Jack Swits and it looks like you're going to storm to a new mileage record - well played sir!

Lily - I'm also a wimp in the heat too so i'm afraid I still win the wimp-off.  Anything above 20 degrees and i'm utterly useless.

More of the same this morning as the heavens opened once again and soaked me through.  It was colder though and there was a right old wind pelting icy rain into my unappreciative mug.  Only saving grace was that it was but a mere 5 miler.

DD - Good to see you back mate and that's an incredibly generous offer, thanks a million for that.  I've not done a marathon for charity yet but plan on either training up for an Iron Man or an ultra one day, to earn those charity pounds.  Nice extra incentive to push for the sub 3 now

I'm undoubtedly more of a whimp than dear Lilytoo as I do sometimes find myself put off by the especially heavy presipitation.  Today's was just that, yet again.  It was...and still is...cats, dogs and probably other assorted beasts to boot.  A very soggy, slightly dispiriting 9 miles.  Listening to Jack Dee's biography.  The weirdo-outbursts of laughter are impossible to hold in.

Morning.  A gentle 5m recovery run.  I used to hate these but have grown to enjoy them now, just plodding forward at an almost unnoticeable trot.  Wet and windy was ordered in for this morning.

Excellent pace that JT.

Birky - You hobnobber you

9 miler this morning with 4 at LT.  Was famished when I woke up and left which resulted in me feeling a bit drained at certain points in the run and was very glad to get home and ram a load of breakfast down my throat.

Good weekends stuff all.

First day of marathon training today and started with a nice 11 miler in perfect running weather.  Cool not cold and felt very comfortable throughout.

Good distance Ness. 7 miles tonight in sleet for the first mile but dry after.

Matt - You know how to bring a man back to earth with a bump!  I always thought the 21st was the turning point but alas, just the shortest day it seems.  It is all very dark at the moment, I don't get on well with the lack of daylight at all.

10k with the club last night over the hills.  45 minutes was decent pace for the route, in just about the worst weather winter could throw at us.  Torrential rain, sleet and then snow as the elevation rose and obviously cold to boot.

Nice Birks, what are you doing for them?  Hope Jo wins

7 miler at GA pace this morning.  Hey folks, only 11 more days until the mornings start getting lighter earlier

JT - Glad to see you've fixed yersen!

5 mile recovery today on the new municipal skating rink that is North Bury.  Very frosty old business today.

GC - belated returns pal, hope you celebrated like an animal.  Also, you are a runner of course.  You run, therefore you are.

Good running everyone else, some good miles being put in by all it seems.  10 for me tonight, with 5 at lactate threshold.  First ever run with a headtorch and I have to confess, it was an absolute blessing.  I've been missing out.
