Sorry to hear the news tillstar, wish you a speedy recovery 

Brighton Marathon 2015

Tillstar if your aim is just to complete brighton then I would adopt a run walk plan to train and complete the marathon with......poohbear and snowmaiden have done this successfully for the last 2 years , so I guess they are best at advising you on this ...but I wish you an injury free few months so you can achieve your dream and be on the start line, consider 2015 the starter and 2016 the main course ...

I'm still buzzing of news that jo pavey (my lookalike apparently in the running world) is starting the 10km and marathon, will have to make sure I get a photo taken with her and high 5 her at the start as I did with Paula last year!!!

Toby, if you read this, just a thought as I'm running the 10km this time round, as is poohbear, would she like to stand with us to watch the marathon when she has finished, we could arrange a meet up point nearer the time ..

I'm training for speed and longevity this winter as I would like a sub 50 min 10km at brighton  (my pb is 52 mins) I'm also running London marathon have no time for this one, last year was 4:28 (pb 4:13 set at brighton the week before I ran London last year) London was so crowded you couldn't get going, I swore I'd never do it again, so entered the ballot anyway and got a place !!! First time ever, last year ran for charity...

Completed my first ever trail (with lots of mud) race at chipping sodbury back in September, loved it so much I've entered Brooks hell down south for the 17th January !!!! Should keep me entertained over the Christmas period doing the training , keep the mince pie and chocolate calories down anyway !! 

Glad to see new faces on this thread this time round to along with us old ones eh Toby ??!!

Hi all, life is crazy with two new grand children, still running most mornings with my boys too, after the enjoyment of sodbury slog I've entered Brooks hell down south run in Hampshire for 17th January!!! Yep should keep me busy running over Christmas ...

Also found out today that jo pavey is starting brighton 10km and marathon in April ...apparently I've been told we look similar !!! 

Had a tooth out today too, took them 30 mins as it was below gum level and the root was bent over !!! Two dentists having a go, keeping my mouth open for 30 mins, I'm not feeling great tonight, so no running in the morning for me  

Hope everyone is enjoying their running , B&T how is the loft coming along ?? Mel I do enjoy reading about your running, so please carry on telling us ...Toby still a machine as usual ....

Wow, Cornwall was lush sunny all weekend...

What a difference two days make, went running in my usual field this morning and was greeted by lots if ice cold water, in fact my laces froze in my trainers and I had to slip them off when I got home, never had that before, little feet are like blocks of ice, still it makes you hard eh running through frost and ice cold muddy  water

Saw new grand daughter last night, all home after having a c section late Monday afternoon!!! 24 hours later !!! They have named her Ola Florence carash, I was hoping for Florence first then Florence and Finley roll off the tongue nicely , just like a Tesco clothe label ha ha ...

Off to Cornwall this weekend for a pre Christmas rest, just me and my new man, his brother has a b&b in Falmouth , very helpful ....then it's all out for Christmas preparations when I get back ....can't wait ....

Right off out in the field for my usual 5 miles with the boys , lots of puddles ,my trainers are ruined but I've been promised two shiny new pairs for Christmas one for trails the other for roads 

Happy running

Toby you lean mean running machine you !!! We are definatly doing an ultra together!!! When I pop up in December we are talking ultra runs !! And which one to do !!!

Well my first venture into the sport of slippy slidy mud running was bloody great fun, I loved every min of it , I don't think I stopped laughing, I came back covered from head to toe in mud and cow poo I may add, we ran over chipping sodbury marsh, and through a farm yard !!! Was like being at Glastonbury!!! The playing of the last post and two mins silence were a lovely touch as they always run it on remembrance Sunday ....I'm so going back to do it next year !!! Let's just say it was my slowest time for 10 miles 1:57 but I wasn't worried about time, you had to stop and wait your turn through the two sheep dips and one pig trough which you slid on your bum into !! With 1300 runners it churned the whole way up lovely !! Entries open in May, and are sold out within a week, you've so got to give this one a go, it's a bargain at £17 got a lovely technical t shirt and a goody bag , banana and water no medal though as the t shirt was the memento they mention but it's a good one !!! 

 Very tempted to do the Brooks hell down south run on 17th January next year too, anyone want to join me go on you tube and look up Brooks hell series and click on south, it's run on an army training ground in Hampshire ....

Hope everyone is still loving their running cos I know I am right now ....marathon training soon to kick in for London and 10 km at brighton too ...woop woop
