Funk - J8 said you are doing Trimpell now.
Haven't run since Saturday due to illness. I even had to have time off work which hasn't happened for years. Bit hacked off cos I really wanted to get a load of miles in during March but I can't complain too much as it is the first break I've had due to illness since October and it does mean I will be well rested for Trimpell.
Really looking forward to Trimpell, think its the best indicator of how effective last 3 months of training have been. Weather forecast looks ok as well.
I'm still trying to encourage the missus to come with me so transport still undecided. I have set a deadline for her to decide by this evening so will let you know then.
Mr S - Pick me up at 8 o'clock if that's okay.
No reaction to the knee after last night's session but won't run until Sunday.
GBM- Welcome back
Isaac - who can blame them.
Trimpell people - missus and kids are coming on Sunday. I am planning on setting off at about 8:45 from my house and will be looking to leave by about 2 at the latest. I have space for another 4 but would like to try and minimise number of pick ups. Not sure how this affects things.
Isaac - glad to see you have not lost your ability to speak crap.
I want to know how the middlewood way reminds anyone of being bitten in the crutch by a horse in the far east? I am even more confused than usual.
Yes I'm here.
GBM - my people finally passed on the messages from your people. A lift on Sunday would be great thanks. What time should I get to yours and what's your address?
ES - thanks for arranging it all.
And before anyone asks, it has to be The Smiths. I thinks it's more of a case of, The Alarm....who?
GBM-have you got the Alarm's one song on a loop.
Jet-setter-welcome to the thread.
Good luck to those doing Trimpell and any other race this weekend
GBM - Oh dear, I seem to have hit a raw nerve. I only meant what I put, who are The Alarm? Looks like I'll find out tomorrow though, I''ll be sure to bring a Smiths CD as backup.
Cheers for the map, I'll be at yours for 8.
TST, I just saw the article when I was looking for the one AM was on about. Have you never had to squeeze past a horse on the Middlewood? I hate horses, highly strung creatures that they are. I always think that it only takes one moment of panic and it's a broken leg or worse.
Funk , no problem.
Jet setter, welcome to the thread! I see you got thrown in at the deep end with the Alarm v Smiths thing and you've managed to annoy GBM already!
Good luck to everyone doing Trimpell tomorrow.
Jet-setter, welcome to the thread.
Good luck to all racers this weekend!!!
M6 - see you tomorrow at Disley Station at 9.
GBM - Thanks for the directions. I know where I'm going. Are you sure 8am is early enough? Have you allowed sufficent contingency in case of any on-route incidents!!!!! Got some ear plugs so you play The Alarm as load as you like.
My mobile number is 07775 703 614
Welcome Jet-setter. Please don't be Alarmed....
Rare lie-in for me this morning. Was surplus to requirements on the BPTT marshalling roster and not running today ahead of Trimpell tomorrow.
The bad news is that I have used the time to set this up:
Probably just a one-off , with it being my first FLM, all donations gratefully recived etc.
You've probably given it all to Comic Relief anyway.
Feeling on good form ahead of tomorrow.Unless it 's coincidental those core strengthening exercises from RW have really improved my knee

Quest for some marathon shoes is over. Just been to Sweatshop in Hyde and bought a pair of Adizero Tempo for £49 after discounts .
Nice light shoe with a very small medial post. Tried a pair of red Zoom Elites (£50) but they felt a bit clumpty. So now I'm in two minds whether to try them out at Trimpell or wait until Wilmslow instead.
For anyone else shopping for gear today there's loads of racing/training shorts and base layers in the Adidas factory shop.
Hope it wasn't too windy at Grindleford. Wouldn't fancy going over that last bit on Froggatt Edge in this breeze.
Nicko--Thanks for your concern but this is a very close-knit thread, we are all friends and club mates. We've been posting our details and phone numbers on here for years without, as far as i am aware, any problems. If Si Ronic does get some dirty phone calls we will assume that they were from you.
PPP--Ignorance is bliss!!! And you've got the first 2 lines the wrong way round!
