All the best for getting through a tough time TT.  Infection sounds nasty.

Bains.. Brass Monkey is a very flat & fast half-m via country lanes near York (starts at the Racecourse).  Only problem is getting in, this year entries opened at 6am, full by 8:30 am!  Even Marders came up one year and as a result is now the course record holder.

Nice reps Jools.

Lucky escape indeed CC2!  Mrs Wardi has been coughing for about 10 days and a work colleague similar.  So far I am uninfected.

Ha!  Reckless but worthwhile it seems Charlie.  In a similar vein my hammy has been a bit tight lately but after a hot bath last night & 2 runs today they have loosened up!  To continue our religious puns I'm glad you had a road to Damascus experience, even if you are already inside TR's confession box!

LS21.. I reckon you'll be a few minutes ahead of me at the York BM so have me a cup of tea ready at the finish there's a good fella.  As ThR & Njord are running too we've got the beginnings of a thread outing by the look of it.

Good news about the calf(s) Padams, enjoy the North Devon break.

4m delivering a few local Xmas cards this morning then another 7m tonight.

Good to see some others on board!  SC.. all the best with the 3:35 attempt.  I reckon your 5k is the strongest out of that lot so a bit more endurance work should get you there.  I do like the Bubka-esque 3:44:59 however!

Just a gentle nudge for training.. once Xmas/New Year is over remember you only have Jan/Feb then it's taper time! 

4m + 7.5m for me today, much needed with the food, drink & social occasions on offer!

Bibles for heel drops Charlie??  A true testament to your dedication.

Cracking pace there ThR, when's the next race?

Sounds like you're almost ramping up the training TR!  When do the garage puddles start??

Good to see you back ON7, hope you can get that knee sorted.

Much sympathy to Padams.

Get well soon Toro, in time for Xmas hopefully.

Nice to see some mince pie & drink consumption.  Today's 4m + 7.5m double was immediately followed by a mince pie & two glasses of mulled wine - a heady mixture after lots of winter fresh air.

Thanks for the mud tip SJ, but it is probably too late for my complexion!

ThR.. still a good 2nd at Park Run, more impressive junk food intake!  FWIW I went to a party in Huddersfield last night.  Waiting at traffic lights on route to the venue and the rear door of the taxi next to us opened.  The occupant proceeded to barf onto the road while the lights were at red - this was at 8pm!  My immediate thought was 'it must be Christmas!'  BTW I did get a place for the York BM.

Nicely done at the XC Jools, any prize booty?

Well done on the sub 38 10k Toro.

13m here including an annual club off road run.  A mixture of trails, hills, woods & swamps including taking a tumble at one point. This meant I needed a good hose down before the Mrs would let me into the house when I finished!

Welcome JCT, good times for a young'un.

Padams.. sounds encouraging, hope it's onwards & upwards from here.

Hope Jools had a good run at the XC.

Don't be too hard on yourself ThR, best to get it over with in filthy weather!

TB.. don't be letting my club mate (that Steele fella) set you a marathon schedule.  It would consist of no flat bits whatsoever and no run of less than 2 hours! 

TR.. I had a big toe/toenail problem last week which I had to drain.  I've often wondered what purpose toenails serve anyway!

PP.. sorry to hear about the gunkage, quite a few bugs doing the rounds it seems.  All the best for the goose preparation. 

Bains.. nice reps there, 1255m though??.  Don't tell me, a point to point route with a row of groin high bollards at the finishing point. 

Charlie.. sorry to hear that niggle is still niggling, could it be a trapped nerve by any chance? 

Lev.. good to see you have got your feet back on tarmac a bit, hope the recuperation continues well.

After 3 weeks of 55-60m I had a recovery week of 43m last week.  This did include a Park Run Saturday and a windy, wet & muddy XC on Sunday.  4m+7.5m today which were also windy & wet.

Managed to book into the HCC Lugano which is apparently 500m from the start/finish area.  Did my first proper long run recently (18m) so feel like the campaign has started!  Last 4 weeks mileage were 58, 59, 57, then an easier week of 43m last week.

Andrew.. York Park Run is held on the tarmac service track which goes around the Racecourse, fast and flat!  Mrs Wardi had to dib out due to a cough but I managed 20:26 - if anything to cold for my old muscles!  -1 at the start rising to the heady heights of 0 at the finish!  It was sunny though.
