I made several attempts yo post yesterday but browser kept dumping it.

Well parkfunned onesie  As m...eldy said, terrain varies for parkfun. My local is fast n flat but windy. The new one starting early Feb is undulating through woods. Mud will be an issue but wind won't be

Lol At gruffalo soldier, m...eldy 

Dover is kinda romantic when you think of all the journeys started there, Podds  

Glad you've avoided the worst of ms germs, sluggy I will leave the industrial size jar of Vicks out in case you're bored later

Pippi, shocking, next you'll be saying the tooth fairy doesn't exist!

NR, what M....eldy said. You should be plodding  around 3 times a week before extending distance. A longer distance irregularly causes injury.

Tubbs, won't Florida be a bit warm for the neddies?

Well done on getting round parkfun in one piece, Spence  Doing the splits wouldn't be good

Dreadful short slow run yesterday. Went to see Wild at cinema with mark and heather. Good film but more thought provoking than usual hollywood stuff. Certainly felt I'd been on a emotional journey but not in a manipulative or mawkish tearful kinda way. 

Today lead marshals are running the club 10k route. Apparently that also includes me. I don't know route or area but it involves off road along the sea wall

I've recorded it so no spoilers please.

Woo hoo to well aged teachers and boo to sore gobs 

M...eldy, Wasn't it Anne widdecombe, when asked to write a diet book, said it would only have two pages with eat less on one page and move more written on the other.

Consistency is the way to go, coco

(((Tubbs)))) Awwww, megs would love to nuzzle up to you and cheer you up 

Podds, enjoy the few days just you and your boys

Lunch on a Friday, Spence? Do you not eat Mon to Thurs?

NR, with your history its important to keep an eye out for unexplained weight loss. Having been there myself 13 years ago and weighed around 7st 9lb, I understand that its hard not to see every ache or pain or change as something sinister. The good news is running is a great escape mentally and I'm sure it and the wonderful WAISTers have got me this far. The good news is that the further down the remission road you get, the less it becomes part of who you are and more just a plot twist in the story of your life

Woohooo to Podds mentees. I think m....eldy should mentor kids. Both Podds and m...elds are way too scary not to do what they say;-) 

NR,  I'm no expert but I believe weight does fluctuate daily. A more accurate picture would be seen if you weighed yourself less frequently, maybe weekly? Any particular reason for daily weighing? 

PipPippi, the link was to the mixtures pushbike song. Well done on the perfect length new route.  

My runs are logged on garmin but it only holds the last 7 runs and I never upload anything. It said I was 8.40 miling my last mile on Tuesday and it wasn't downhill or wind assisted.

I have a Bosch. Its very efficient;-) 

(((TT n snaily)))) glad he's nearly back on form

Pippi, pedestrians are a menace when on a turbot. There I wascycling along watching TdF when some little oik stepped out in front of the telly;-) I can just see Spence right now

Sluggy, did the man turn you on with his electrickery ?

Ah, farfar, you're an accountant, I'd expect nothing less than you needing some numbers to crunch even when you run 

(((Daffs))) Do as Podds says, stay under your blanky 

Coco, the running will be good to shape up and great for your motivation too. Just so long as you run past the cake shop;-) 

We are losing our most experienced team member on promotion. My unofficial mentor  We now have 4 out of 6 posts vacant but I still haven't secured one extra day each week to go full time. Bonkers.

Pedestrians, Spence, watch out for pedestrians. They're my biggest problem. A quickie and something where the pleasure is drawn out? Hmmm, both have their benefits;-)

DL is on residential? Is that a euphemism for locked up in the loony bin;-) hope things work out withFC 6  A birthday is a great excuse to have fun n get to know her.

(((Tubbs))) Hard not to worry with so much at stake and past experience but WAISTer vibes will be with you 

((((Sluggy)))) How generous of emess to share his germblies! Hope hes got his nurses uniform on now.

Daffy,, not a great start to your day. People at work moan about getting stuck behind bin lorries, they should swap and encounter the hazards cyclists do!

Podds, loving yourdirty dykes  Motivation to get out cycling and plodding isn't easy when its cold so you have my sympathy

Well plodded snaily 

Chuggy, I think you've missed a leaf over there!

Better look sharp, team meeting with deputy director first then meeting her Ladyship the CEO I guess with 50,000 staff, she might not know my name;-) Good negative split run last night n allocated my job for club inaugural 10k- not toilet duty

Im a fan of black beasts. Cush looks fantastic with her shiny, soft black coat  

((((Toofy prob people)))

DL,  they do find you some interesting FC placements. Must have something to do with how they assessed you!

Snaily, sounds as though Mr snail is being spiteful. Deal with Ralph's mum direct if you can

Spence,  your RW spread us about the benefits of a club.  What has your run club done for you? 

Onesie, the essential oils sound interesting. Your house must smell lovely too 

Mr C is such a sweetie. I think romance is overrated.

I use advocate. Well, the dog does, not me personally. 

Glad you have plenty of emergency provisions,chuggy. Safe, speedy journey. 

Have you been to choir since your post about your uncertainty as to whether it was right for you, sluggy?

Thank. Goodness the shoe saved your foot, FP!

((((Penny)))) Got the RoboCop look going on;-)  Fingers crossed she will be skiing again in no time. If not the two of you could strap your gammy knees together and ski on your good legs

Yay Thandi is a mummy You must be proud, Tubbs 

Spence the page 3 bird in RW mag?  My eyes, my eyes;-) 

Hope the new choir sorts itself out, sluggy. A good sing song is so uplifting  

My birds and bees discussion turned out to be innocuous enough and was more about being aware of the effects of our desires on our state of mind. thankfully we skipped over each person divulging how often they think about sex. Love the idea of Hugo filling the jar up every time he thought about sex, chuggy
