I'm not working on anything right now Jude, but I think I might have a little fish around in the Amateur world and see what shows are coming up. It's about time I went on stage again.

Back from 5.35 miles with hubby and kids swimming. Lots of christmas cards arrived today - better late than never! Our minimalist decorations are still up, so we've put the new cards up too - strange!!
Gonna jump in the shower.

jude you are having extended christmas!!!
gastank, have you thought anymore about NDW50? im thinking i may need someone to give me a piggyback at some points...
Welcome home Gastank.
Welcome Mitiog to the CRAC team. Great to have you join us.
Ecky sending you hugs since you seem very down.
Yes, it's back to normal tomorrow for us too. School holiday time is deffinitely getting easier now my girlies are a bit bigger, and we've had a lovely time, but I'm looking forward to them being in school tomorrow.... although I'm not so keen on the alarm going off at 7am.
No running for me today and I'm really pleased because the weather has been atrocious (sp?). Hope if clears up a bit tomorrow. Hubby and I are going ice-skating together once the girls are at school. He likes skating but I haven't been for years so am hoping I'll not fall over too much.
Jude - I've got you 5 decorations. Quite nice ones - or at least I think so. I'd like them on my tree, so I hope you like them too. I don't really do shopping but I'm keeping an eye out for another week or so and then I'll send them. At least you'll have them nice and early for next year.
chili...im kinda stealing your idea but hope you dont mind...Judes tree will be bigger by this christmas...so..hows about we all send her a decoration for her tree inTurkey and she can then send us a nice pic ike she did this time on RW so we can see.....and a little bit of CRAC TEAM will live in Bursaand Jude will feel a little bit closer to us all and vice versa...in fact she could hang them on it all year !!!!
maybe we could send a tree dec that we think represents us..... so Jude will have us all on her tree....poor woman LOL
....Its ok jude you dont HVE to have our ugly mugs on the tree christmas time only if you prefer
Jude well done on getting out today- I suspect that you may have been the only one out running today.
I have been naughty & haven't yet made a dr's appointment.........I do feel fine.......but, am getting nagged by Mrs AF & you lot.......I am a typical man who doesn't like going to the Dr's.....
Anyway that is my confession and I don't know whether to go or not.
No running for me today,but, am now working from home tomorrow so will get out then.
Bye for now........
Chili - you really are very kind. Thank you! I'm sure they are lovely and they'll be special coz they are from you.
Loula - you made me laugh! but that's very sweet of you too! Thank you for thinking of me
AF - It's a bit cold here but apart from that perfect running weather, not even a breeze. Please make a doctor's appointment, even if it's just to keep us all quiet!
AF - it is not normal to pass out and fit! Go to the dr - make the appointment tomorrow, you must get checked out.
well done to anyone that got out in the horrible weather. I had a good session at the gym. Back to work tomorrow so had to spend the afternoon planning lessons. Must get the alarm set to get up early for a run before work. ankle still not good, but I am pretty sure running isn't making worse, going to keep the mileage down and be sensible though
Well that weather was fun wasn't it.I nearly drove into a fallen tree on the way to work.I just managed to keep control of the car as i swerved around it.Later in the morning the rain was literally sideways and it was like the middle of the night at mid day.An hour later it was beautiful sunshine and a gentle breeze.Weird.
Tomorrows tune is Christopher Cross and 'Ride Like The WInd'' from 1981.Or if you like it a bit heavier you can listen to Saxon's 1988 cover version.
Still very under the weather and i fear that most of January will be taken up with recovering.I will aim for a racing comeback in early spring,maybe with a late spring HM before i prepare to focus on Autumn's marathon.
Good Morning ALL...Not as windy as yesterday thank goodness.
Phantom..you will most probably be out pounding the streets by now... and think mathschick was going out early for arun to...Hope you both enjoyed.
Limper...tut tut..you'd better hide...me and Loula are a comin to find you.....lol Know what you mean about fainting but I still think he is best to get checked over even if its to please Mrs AF and us girls on here... have a good day..
DJ....Hope you feel better soon.....Lovin the song of the day being back
Hi Chilli,Loula,Ecky,AF,Gastank,RR,Byeck...and all.
I will hopefully be running later at running club...hill repeats tonight..wonderful
Hope everyone has agood day.

Back from my scheduled run.2 miles easy 4x400m speed interval(but honestly not too fast) then 2 miles easy Nice day out there compared to yesterday.
Have lovely not too stressful day friends.
OK you lt and Mrs AF win..................I have made a Dr's appointment,but, it isn't unitil next Tuesday morning....
Well done on your run Phantom-I am trying to incorperate more speedwrokd into my training and doing 100m or so sprints during my runs. I will be telling the girls off if they keep posting pictures of men up on this thread!!!!!
DJ- Keep posting the tune I remeber the Christopher Cross one and will look up the other versions.I hope that you get back to running soon.
byeck-Hope you get out for a run. I am afraid I am not very good at following schedules I just fo with the flow when it comes to running.
LLB- I saw that book abour Dean whats his name in Waterstones it looks an interesting read. How does it comapre to Born to Run?
Franny- Enjoy your hill repeats. I am hopefully going to be doing a 11.5 hilly run on the Downs next Sunday.
Much nicer day and got out and knocked out a 6.6 mile run in about 52 minutes so happy with that-still a tad achey from Sundays epic.
