Mark - there is the vague possibility I might join you on Boxing Day so there'd better be a snail's section for me
Merry Crimbo fellow Thanet peeps!
HAPPY CHRISTMAS THANET!!!!
Seems like something Thanet orientated came down our Chimney last night!!! Ho ho ho..............
Merry Crimbo all
good news too - the T Shirt fits! I'm now worried that MF7 has an accurate eye for assessing lady's torsos.... LOL!!!
Hope everyone had a lovely Chrimbo - back to work for me today/tomorrow! (can you tell.... )
Hi everyone and welcome to the club Bo-bo . How do you fancy joining some other club members at the Marshside overnighter will be good training for Iceland (if not as cold).
Sorry ive never written a training prog for an ultra I usually just follow my Mara training but double the weekend miles by running back to back lsr's on sat and Sun. (you are welcome to a copy of my mara schedule if you think it would help) How far is Iceland ?
PSC oh erm it was an guess honest
oops just realised im logged on as the current Mrs F
" want to be in my gang, my gang, my gang"
MF7 - isn't Marshside hard enough in daylight?! - sadly Jnr & I will be in N Yorks but we'll think of you!
I have a vague training programme - hills, hills and more hills, and a bit of off-road! Iceland is 55km so I know I can cover the distance but the terrain will be the challenge Iceland - the target races (in build up) at which I will of course be modelling my new t-shirt are IOW mara in May and Dartmoor Discovery in June. Just need to shift the chest infection I got for Christmas - at the moment I'm going nowhere!
good plodding/resting Thanet
Blimey Bo-bo sounds like youve got it all sorted
carefull cinders !! Im sure the current Mrs F could give you some pointers on how to hurry junior along but probably not suitable for an "open forum" I seem to remember it involved a hot curry a bottle of Red and some erm how do we say this "bedroom action"
Hi guys, just back from a wee trip up north to see my Mammy. I see everybody has recovered from the festivities and is in good form. Went out for a short plod today after two weeks of nothing and boy did the legs let me know!
Mark, I hate to be a nuisance, but can you email me that marathon training programme again please. I printed it out when you first sent it but have lost it in my chaotic non-filing system, i.e. the pile of stuff by my side of the bed! Also, have you put me down for marshalling at the Duathlon on Sunday? I can bring my own vest as Alastair forgot to hand his back at the end of the Thanet 10. Typical.
Santa brought me some running related pressies including one of those "bloody Hell, that's yellow!" tops, so I am hoping to start your programme seriously next week.
I wonder why your messages keep coming up with a black cross and the word Pirate. The same thing happened with one of Podds messages. Are you two in some kind of secret society?
LOL! I always thought that reading was bad for you - you've confirmed it CB!!
CB, I could tell you about the yellow symbol that Pods and I (and others) have but then I would have to kill you, and that would never do! So best I don't tell
Cinders, thanks for the virual lemsip.... I'm hitting this with about 3000mgs Vit C, RDAs of Iron and Zink plus Day nurse, cough medicine, fruit, plenty of fluids, 10 hrs rest/day and it's working..... I've spent 3 days feeling pretty goggy, but am now on the mend. Still got a dreadful cough, but no longer have the hot/cold/sweaty feeling and aches from head to toe.
Good grief PSC, that should surely send the lurg well on its way !!! Get well soon
See there's some fireworks tonight off Ramsgit harbour, might pop along later.
I've only just recovered from having a really bad cold.
My cough was absolutely dreadful. Went on from Christmas Eve to today, more or less.
