Just back from a five miler, week two of the RUNNERS WORLD ULTIMATE MARATHON SCHEDULE......oops sorry that doesn't need to be in caps eating a butty at the same time as typing.........feeling better thankfully though rather bunged up in the head. Good to be out there with the trainers on couldn't be bothered to get out the bike in this colder weather.
Glad I didn't go to Paris for the rugby!!! Wow some seriously annoyed Brits over there I would imagine!! Dont think England will stand a chance against France and Wales.
Well done on the miles Louisa lucky you a week skiing, keep at it.
Life can only be understood backwards but it must be lived forwards!!
Yay - glad everyone is back in action
Louisa you must have been reading my mind - I've been thinking about doing the same - which dvd did you order?
Yay that's good news re getting out for run today Craig!
SB - I went for the Yogalosophy one by Mandy Ingber ...yes I was won over by the fact some famous and very svelt women like Jennifer Aniston follow it...but also came with good reviews on Amazon. We'll see how it goes. Several of my friends who are into triathlon do yoga and or pilates and swear by it for keeping things more balanced and injury free.
Right - back to work for me also...boooo
And he's back in the game! Good work Craig! And everyone else, too.
Was SO nice to see some grass today and not boring old slush and snow. I think I can even smell spring!
My life has been put completely into context today after spending the afternoon consoling my neighbour whose house burnt down today - their boiler exploded. Luckily no-one was hurt - but they've lost everything including 2 cars as the oil tank went up too.
I say sod romance - celebrate being alive in all its wondrous guises!
I know - crazy eh! Just you be remembering how lucky you are to be alive and able to run!
And check you out using asterisks
Hope you had a nice evening last night? If I was 10 years younger and not married - I would have enjoyed the sight of all those firemen even more!
What's on your training programme today?
Good juggling skills BoD. How did the intervals go today? You sound like your itching to get going again
Did a Sidney run today ie. very slow and numerous stops to sniff at things (Sid, not me) but it was great to feel the earth beneath me, rather than ice - and the sun was shining - so came back happy!
Nice run to work this morning swear I ran past Vassos Alexander on the Monsal Trail......who? Okay he is the sports guy on radio 2 with Chris Evans in a morning..............very busy in Bakwell today as school holidays brings all the kids and grandparents to the Peak District. Cant beat a new job Craig for a fresh outlook.....all the best with that.
Ryan Giggs doing core yoga philandering sounds strange to me. Mind you he has stayed fit all his career!!! Footballers they need the money from health and fitness CDs dont they!!
BoDuke wrote (see)I find myself also singing themes to Cbeebies OUTLOUD - not good! Are you going to send e your carb loading plan and then I can alter it if need.

Ruth - yip it makes everything seem a bit insignificant doesn't it? I've been trying to think of what I would try to save if it ever happened to us - animals and us aside of course - and I don't think there's anything that I would risk my life for! But like Tenjiso reminded me - all vital documents and photos have now been copied and backed up. It's not having the basics that you take for granted that's the hassle! Family now safely installed in a spare house btw and being very inspiringly stoical now that the tears and panic have stopped. Hope your ankle isn't too painful though Ruth.
Yay BoD - good for you mate - very proud of you!
Go Tenjiso - I can't even do one! With a cold too - putting us all to shame - need to start doing some press ups or at least something to make myself feel less wimpy! Get well soon.
You are being impressively disciplined BoD - extra brownie points for you. Do you have a claim form for those?
Am sat here being useless while some chappies put loft insulation in for us - typical that the cold snap is now over! Bet they think I am some sort of computer geek sat here tapping away in the study LOL
