Ha ha! That sums up my running at the moment too, I've just had a text from a friend saying 'saw you out running, looked like you were struggling' cheers mate!

Good to hear you've got some answers Mace.

Well done on the PB DT but I say that in a grudging way as now that I'm in the relegation zone!  for Lit for 3rd lady without even trying.

I did a very slow 10k last weekend, knew I would be shit due to a cold which still hasn't gone away but I was surprised by just how rubbish I was, one of my miles was slower than MP it was on grass and into a strong headwind but even so… Luckily no fast old ladies turned up so I was 1st V40 and got vouchers plus a special medal.

Hmmm don't think I've ever tried the Guide's so something to take a look at. Like you DT I would like something lighter for HMs but it would just give my shoe buying extra complications!

I've got a stinking cold so haven't run this week and I'm racing at the weekend I doubt my choice of footwear is going to help rescue this one.

I also need new road shoes, I always wear asics gt 2000's but the latest model doesn't fit me properly. Last time I went to the shoe shop they refused to sell me any trainers saying none were right for me.

Saucony Fastwitch - they've got fast in the name so they must work. The weight and flexibility seems to make a difference, like spikes for xc feel amazing to race in cos there's nothing in them. I don't use my flats a lot, only for 10ks and occasional training as my calf muscles can't take it.

DT I'm shocked that you got beat, was that other Dad a ringer?

Well done Skinny on the race and maths stuff 

Sorry to hear your news Madbee hope it works out for you. We're about to go into yet another round of redundancies although we won't get the final shake down for while.

Short shorts DT they sound positively obscene! I tried to do a 3 mile tempo run tonight but was thwarted by a gang of teenage boys who thought they were being smart by back heeling a football into my path. I grabbed the ball and threw it over a wall, not laughing then were they! 

Well done on the PB McF, every second counts.

Hello Madbee hope you are ok x


Do you mix your clothing brands you wear at the same time?

Most of my tops aren't even branded as they've been given out at races.. How would you cope if someone put a knife that had been used for butter in the jam?

Bad news Mace does walking hurt? I think I bruised my heel pad after London (I was jumping on my heels - not even drunk) but it only took a week to recover. Hope you get some answers soon.

No I'm not in front of the camera, although sometime bits of me are… When you see the Scottish corr on the news there's usually someone like me in head to toe waterproofs standing out of shot with coffee to keep the talent happy

I am thinking of becoming a trade negotiator as there's soon going to be a need for lots of them. Until I do the NVQ I work in broadcast journalism. 

Track session tonight 3x500m, 4x400m, 5x300m ouch!
