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

Just had a lush full body sports massage .....now I'm ready to tackle the world ....

Gearing up for sodbury slog in two weeks time, my first venture into proper trail off road lots of mud running, can't wait, then I guess it's trying to find a plan that will introduce speed into my legs for the Brighton 10 km( pb  for a 10km is 52 mins) would like to get as near to 45 mins as possible .... but also need to run long cos of London two weeks later....

Waves to everyone

Paid by visa debit online via runners world, so I guess I'm not covered like a credit card ??  It's just one of those things I guess !! 

Only thing is I have run small 5km runs this chap has put on before, in nightingale woods in south marston , every last Sunday in the month about 3 years ago he use to give out medals for us runners who ran , our money (£5)went to help for heroes!!! (And we were able to use the hotels facilities for free that day too)..... Well I'm hoping it did after this episode....I'm just hoping it's not a scam as,such but someone whos business has unfortunately gone tits up !!

Even so, it's etiquette to let people know that the race is off!!

No I havnt had any response from the e mails I sent to them, actually I've sent 3!!!

I'm sure they must have someone who reads through the threads to check for malicious content etc .....so if runners world do have a certain someone who reads these threads please can we have a response back,  as to how we can go about maybe getting money back??? Or just write it off as,a bad experience ??  I had a confirmation e mail with a number to confirm my entry into this race, I know a third party then passes money and details onto race organisers , I guess they have no way of confirming if these races are genuine ....
