I'm with Aitch - this week has been tough and I can't wait for the weekend. Not that I'm likely to get any rest - but at least I might get to see my family.
Think I might be running with Becky later?
Count and breathe Miss O...
That's better (I think).

Went to see The King's Speech last night. Very good.
I'd love for me n Mrs Didds to go watch it but we have no-one to look after the wee-bairns (anyone fancy some babysitting duties?)
Hopefully a lucky escape GIRO. Another sign that nothing good comes from ironing as well.
Mozzy would have gone out for 18 miles just to make sure everything was OK though.
OMG Giro! that's made me feel a bit queasy.... I'm not good with dislocations... ewww. I hope it's okay - you might get a cracking bit of bruising from that!!
I'm with Len on that one. And I used to work in theatres! Hope it sorts Gaz - take it easy.
Plumped for the run - 12 miles - aimed to warm up for the first 2 then 8 minute mile the remainder. Went to plan up to mile 4 then my new orthotics started to rub on my right foot - stopped and took it out then carried on looking a bit of a twat carrying it. Other one started to rub at mile 9 so took that one out too. At almost mile 10 my left knee went 'pop' so walked it out then decided to jog off the last couple of miles and concentrate on form. Anyway - av pace 7.56 for the middle 8 miles so not too bad overall.
Planned on swim but decided to head home and look after slightly twingey leg instead. Did a bit on turbo first though to take overall training time up to 2 hours! Swim 2moz.
GIRO - no offence mate, but I'm keeping away from you at the moment, things happen in 3's and I don't want to be the 3rd
Moz - ,, but be careful (please).

Am dram or proper stuff?
Nowt wrong with putting stuff back in place used to love helping the orthopods when I worked on the orthopaedic ward put stuff back in place. Pulled the toenail of my second toe on right foot today as it as gone black (long term problem does it every now and again probably due to the old RAF boots).
Riggsy - does it hurt? I'm debating whether or not to 'lose' mine because it's gone right weird....
Great news is that my hip hasn't ached all week - woo hoo! On for a 16miler this weekend..... missed run today because my running buddy was feeling down and needed a chat - which of course had to be done over coffee not a run.....!!!
RL - when you meet the SP's you'll develop the knack of running WITH coffee. And cake. And gin if you have a camelbak
Cheers Dids - I will be carefull - a bit twingey today so swim - maybe a rest day tomorrow or another swim and then Bosa and a bike ride Sunday. Sorted.
RL no doesn't hurt because the nail is dead when I pull it out (sometimes a bit of blood if I pull some skin off) then I put a bit off surgical tape on to protect the nail bed. Ran 5 miles yesterday with no problems.
Plan is for 6 miles this morning before work this afters.
Probally 6 or 7 on Saturday then a rest day on Sunday (well 14 hours at work!)
Hope the foot is OK Giro and others are recovering from injury
Ooh - yeah - cheers ET!
Got me Mozster to cross his fingers and send positive vibes whilst I did a trial 'hop' after yesterdays disasterous run. No pain! Get in!!!
Nice one Gaz - must be your youth. Us old crocks take a while longer to heal!

Morning you workshy layabouts.
Oops, meant to say Morning Haile but its the same thing .
Haile - hows the allotment? Can I have some seedlings again this year? The beetroot were right luverly.
Hmm, apparently GIRO is indestructable.
A HM around the Land of the Inbreds - count me out
26m for me this week, if I can get out for the Parkrun tomorrow that will be 29m
When does everybody elses running week start/finish - mines Sunday to Saturday.
Isn't Manvers Rotherham (well the Swinton end anyway!)
PJAZ won't you be at Wolfs Pit or the MMM that day.
my week starts on Monday and finishes on Sunday but I am starting to look at my mileage over a two week period to allow for work and races etc. This should hopefully prove to be more flexible and may reduce risk of injury. For example if I am looking at 50 miles a week I want to run 100 miles over 14 days. If I run 60 in the first 7 day segment I only need to run 40 in the second 7 day segment so allowing for work or races in that second week. Going to try this for when I go on long days when getting a decent run in will be difficult on days I work.
entry form for South Yorkshire 1/2 for those interested.
50m per week - i'd be happy with that per fortnight.
Yup, i'll be at the MMM trying to keep up with you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If we go at the pace of those in the Hayfield video we'll be reet.
Pilates and 45 min run last night under the bright moon and stars. Lovely it was, if a little nippy.
My 'week' is Monday through to Sunday. Not that I am doing may run miles at the mo. I also train to time and HR so not really counting miles, as such.
Have I mentioned I am pleased it's Friday?
