Morning all - another SOC fail, slept in until 5am, track tonight and might try and fit in swim to make up for it. 5.30, I'm another +1 for the smaller races, I found Brighton too congested. Are you having a rest now?
5:30 - you were just in front of me by 5 minutes on Sunday! And well done Valis on a great time.
Agree that smaller races are preferable but still enjoyed the atmosphere and support at Brighton. Nice to do a big race like that every now and then.
Back to SOC running tomorrow but will be out on the bike today.
Chris, you must have been very close to my mate Matt in his 100MC shirt. It was certainly a different marathon, and I'll be back next year! Still so many to go to the elusive shirt.....
not doing any socs this week - having a rest, still doing some exercise though, bike run and swim
gobi - I'll have a read later, I like your blog
Swam at the Garrison pool yesterday and SOC run this morning. Nice day!
Good Morning L&G
Just entered some marathons in 2015....don't tell the missus.

Good Morning L&G Kate, next marathon is Three Forts in May. So yes a bit of a rest! I expect you'll be doing your favourite North Dorset Villages pub crawl marathon then... Emmy was Paris #50 for you?
#51 actually. Am now a full wannabe
I'll be doing Rotterdam this weekend! How is everyone else getting on?
Pushed for time this morning so just a short run with Jenny and the pooch in the Bourne Woods.
have a great holiday gobi
don't know why I couldn't sleep last night
swimming tonight. This tapering is making feel very lazy....
Hello all - busy wth work but managed hill reps, spin and 3K swim last night, turbo and run this morning, NW 1 snail 2 ducks, gloves back on again. Nice pic Chris, and yours on FB Emmy. Are you supposed to be retiring in 2015 5.30? Have a good holiday/training week Gobi.

I'm going on holiday but was still out at 0500 this morning and will be out tomorrow. In a strange way I almost feel like the last 2 weeks has been training for my holiday.
Have a great time Gobi!

A few people on FB have been saying the same thing... could be pollen or the moon?
You will catch me soon Emmy - I did mid 60s of marathon or longer. I was never after the 100 club so I don't know exactly how many I did :??)
Ahhh... come on Gobi - you must keep a list Everyone loves a good list!
I'm another of the thousands, getting up. 5.30 for running or training, then back to shower, ready, sort our 2 year old, then 8 hour day and so on. Like you i would never get out at the end of the day and I love the satisfaction that my training is done for the day. Keep strong, and give yourself a day off every now and then and just roll over!
Morning all - some SOC work, whilst waiting for the pool to open, have to run after my tender deadline of 5pm as I want to get a long one in. Waiting to see what state Mr F is in when I wake him up after a charity office to office bike ride of 132 miles yesterday, distance was fine but a Central London route is never fun. PSC, hope you're almost at your desk. Bopster, rolling over means that 7am feels like missing the whole day! Have a great Friday.
PSC - FANTASTIC news!!
Gobi - i'm just too anal I guess....
Kate - that's a long way for a charity ride!
SOC run and swim later.
Have to take younger son to the fracture clinic this morning for follow up x-ray. He fell out of a nightclub in Nottingham a couple of weeks ago and broke his wrist in two places.
PSC - great news
Chris - how on earth did he manage to fall out of a nightclub??
Emmy - could be the pollen, I have noticed all the fields of oil seed rape that surround where I live are in full fragrant flower
Gobi - I am also rubbish at keeping lists, not that I have done any marathons (yet) but plenty of halfs and 10ks, no idea what my pb is really because I haven't written things down....
domestic stuff today and packing to go to wales tomorrow
Good morning all
After a week off of running back out for a few miles plus Park Run.
10k this morning - still have a sore achilles and swelling where the tendon meets the heel. So went against my own advice and took ibuprofen before running. Feels a bit better now!
Afternoon all - 66.66 miles on the bike, not bad when I only finished my 15 mile run at 9pm last night. Chris, ouch to both you and your son, valis, how are the legs after park run? Good luck tomorrow Emmy.
Gobi - cooll!!!
