Last night went well even if did add a few pounds to the waist. Was nice to cook for friends again though. Might even try to make it a more regular thing too
Oh, I've spoken to work and I'm going to do a trial run to work next week to see if feasible for me to get there and back safely with a view to returning to work the w/c 10th! Looking forward to going back but sure after 1 day I'll be fed up again Oh well lotto win still hasn't come my way so don't have a choice
Hope everyone else is doing well and has a great weekend planned
Welcome back Silver, what temp did you expect in 'sunny blighty'? Good luck with the run this weekend.
I'm getting there, talking about going back to work in couple weeks time. Got less than 2 weeks to physio and can't wait. Going to hurt but will be worth it. The leaflet says they do physio and sports physio so hopefully will get the full deal not just a piece of paper of what to do.
Got a busy one today with family and friends over, going to be a hectic one but think will be good x
on the road to recovery Maam! sounds positive
Silver - you can do it - it doesn't take long for your overall running fitness to get back to where you left it (whenever that was!!) We got the better weather for running in coming up (as in not hot - what a joke eh!).... Autumn is my absolute favourite time of year for running - until the all the leaves on the floor get too slippery that is!
Hope everyone is well! I managed 102 miles in August. I aimed for 90 so it was a good result but i'm not going to aim so high this month - maybe only 75 again....
Cheerio for now - back to watching cable guy on the telly!
BRILLIANT Stripes!!! that made me laugh out loud. I think most of us have been there - I've actually had to go in the golf course before.... I am not joking, it was a near thing but thankfully I timed it perfectly between dog walkers!
Once, my brother and I did some laps around the common in southampton - he's a super fast runner so after a couple of laps (miles) I told him to do some at his pace and lap me - so off he went into the distance. 35 minutes later I knew what had happened and I saw him running towards me (wrong direction). With the extra speed and movement from doing my pace to doing his pace, meant he had to jump in his car, go home, go to the loo and come back again. Some funny times
Sounds like some great milages, fantastic weekends and of course good stories.
I had a great weekend and match making is going well. OH took me out this morning and bought me my birthday pressie (Birthday isn't till Oct) Nice new camera, all shiny and great. Only thing is need to learn how to use it now.
OH has a track day in his Lotus Exige S on Wednesday so want to get some pics for him, so I'm thinking I'll head out to a nice area for pics, get ice cream and chill out. Oh, and I've got a passenger ride on track day too which should be fun
Well I actually managed a LSR early Friday morning and did 10.17 miles and I really enjoyed it and felt fine and also didnt ache much next day so my total for August is 63 miles but I am all set now for HM Sunday
Went to Westbay camping for the weekend, was mates 50th friday, we had such a laugh. About 15 of us in total and the weather was good I drank rather alot and had two fried breakfasts, got home sunday night and felt rather ill I am being exceptionally good now counting down to sunday
Boo - sounds like a great weekend, with heaps of fun and laughter. Good luck for you HM this weekend, I'm highly jealous.
All this talk of HM is making me miss the GNR even more I should be counting down to a week on Sunday but instead I'm still sat at home. Off to Manchester today to see how I get on with a view to returning to work next week
Hope everyone else is getting on good too
Well done on the LSR Booey, sounds like you had a good weekend
Hope you got on okay in Manc land Maam
Did this weeks LSR tonight. Set out to run for 2 hours and managed 13.17 miles so quite a bit slower than last week but wasn't worried.
Got back and watched Dave Weir win again. He is amazing.
Best bit of games so far though was cheering on young scouser David Devine in the 1500 metres. He did so well to get a bronze, I was virtually in tears. If he wins his 800 tomorrow I will turn on the full waterworks
Went out last night for a short little run, just 3.5 miles nice and steady thats it now before Sunday am actually looking forward to it
We are off to Wales early Sat morning through to Weds to stay with my folks, so can travel to race from there I will defo pop on though to let you know how I get on, really wanna beat my Silverstone time of 2.22 I feel confident at the moment so fingers crossed
Maam - how did you get on in Manchester
Stripes - great running - well done - if I could run your LSR this Sun I would be over the moon hehe
Stripes - good luck also for Sunday, you can do it we can telepath each other to spur us on although mine dont start till 1 which as far as races go is pretty late I thought
Hi all, still doing loads of great runs which is nice to see.
Manchester - Tuesday's trip I found I need new glasses and today was to discuss going back to work. I'm going back from Tuesday, but phased return so only 2 days next week. Nervous but excited too, be good to be back. Must admit it's going to drain me, this week has and it's nothing by comparison
Good luck with the HM Boo and enjoy your trip away xx
I'm not going for a run tonight. Or a spin class - i'm off to eat piles of carbs, cheese and garlic. And i'm going to let it all hang out!!!
Good luck for the races this weekend!!! how exciting - wish I was doing one......
Em - sounds like a perfect night and very well deserved. Enjoy Nom Nom Nom!!!
Stripes - hot and sunny no chance, this is North Wales we are talking haha
Have a good one everyone

Good luck to everyone racing today
