  • For those that do like fruit in their flapjack, this has become a staple with my running group, not exactly healthy or indeed cheap  but very delicious and quite squidgy 250g butter 200g golden syrup100g soft brown sugar 250g oats100g plain flour…
  • Hello all just popping in for the first time in ages - been oldie-sitting then working so this will be my first proper weekend at home for 5 weeks. Have kept up with what everyone's been doing, intermittently  . Good luck to all who are racing or lo…
  • Popping in briefly... Sorry to her of son's worries BBS, hope he's back to his confident self soon, not a parent myself, full of admiration for those who are! Seem to be assuming reverse-role parenting for my two oldies...hope Mum will come home …
  • Thanks Flossie. Have just been watching the athletics too really pleased for Jessica Ennis and amazed by Bolt
  • Welcome back Shades, sounds like a great week Glad Millie is OK, pets can be such a worry! I am missing our 18-year-old moggy while I'm away but reports say he is quite happy with the cleaning lady and intermittent presence of Mr Sluggie. Hope to p…
  • Go for the bunny Mrs M, you will give it a much needed home and it will give you a lot of pleasure (unless it has been misrepresented and is the killer bitey bunny from hell ) Good going JP, you should be in great form for Leicester with all the bi…
  • Great report LMH, well done you! Wecome back LB, enjoy the 80kg washing
  • Welcome home LMH and a fantastic well done! LOL at the Italian men! Horrified at the lack of water though. Wecome back too Clag, holiday sounds great but exhausting. I've never done proper MTBing, have ridden a MTB off road but always got off when …
  • Hooray, I now have a dongle and internet access from my laptop! V exciting re LMH, must be good news if finished so quick! Well done on your 5k Bridget, I agree with Mrs Mac re 5ks being too scary. I haven't done one for years (well, not counting…
  • Hi all - quick post to congratulate Mrs M on the lemsip-fuelled double and JP on the Ironman - well done to both, terrific feats of endurance. And very best wishes to LMH in Prague. Hope the bike is OK. Glad Flossie and Flossette are better. Thi…
  • Ok, here's a mad thing - wanted to join in the fun so have switched my Tatton entry to the sprint on Saturday and entered this too. It was your idea Farnie (sort of!) The list FLAPs: Aitch Basil Brush *entered* Basil's mate Becky CallyCat      …
  • Elspeth - fogot to say congrats on 10 and to your son too. Do you have a target for your half in two weeks? Have a lovely hol LB. I am also off cycling in Cornwall for a few days (strictly pootling and tea shops) Good luck in Prague LMH and to eve…
  • LMH - well I was first W55 but given the heroic status of the only other W55 I didn't think it appropriate to gloat!I am looking forward to tomorrows results to see how the only W50 did, however...  HY4 - there are prescription goggles or you can j…
  • Flossie, poor Flossette and poor you. Do hope the worst is over soon. Horrible about KKs dog, as you say they are really part of the family. Glad you had a good time in NC Mrs Mac, sounds like wildlife was a bit too close! Have been glued to TdF…
  • Really sorry you had such a carp day at work Mr B. IMHO people who have a clean desk probably don't have enough work to do (or they just brush it all into a drawer to look good). Hope you enjoyed the TdF highlights tonight anyway. I though Cav was…
  • Argh, wish I hadn't looked at the thread, going to watch the highlights at 7! PSC, fab race report, great achievement Just back from a slow 8 miles, a bit cream-crackered - reminder that although I've been doing a lot of long walk-run LDWA events,…
  • Sorry to hear about Flossette, but what a talented daughter! Rubbish about the jacket LB,how annoying Very envious of bike LMH, you must be super-excited now! VRs suggestion sounds good Elspeth - as long as you can resist hammering the 10k! I a…
  • I've entered along with a pal - may lead to some confusion between different species of slug! We'll probably be setting off with the walkers and doing more walking than running (having noted the 4000 ft of ascent!). Does anyone know if we get any f…
  • BBS - sorry about your sad news. These things do make one think long and hard about not letting the job take over your life - I've been very much influenced recently by the experience of friends who've suffered life-threatening illnesses and that…
  • Fingers crossed... LMH - Trentham is this coming Sunday it's failtly local - near Stoke, so about 45 mins drive. They still have places in the half IM and OLy too if you have a rush of blood to the head! Swim and run in country park/gardens, bike o…
  • Re the eye - don't think goggles leak but I do rinse them out in lake water to avoid fogging I don't think I would have had a problem if it hadn't been for scratching cornea, no idea how I managed that. Just been pronounced OK by optician so will b…
  • Congratulations to all you who did it - blinkin well done!
  • Commiserations on the lurgy HY4, hope it's feeling better soon Flossie - that's some weight loss! What's your secret? (Have just demolished toasted teacake, that's definitely not one of your five a day) Shades, hope redundancy threat does not happ…
  • Thanks to everyone for advice - in fact managed to see optician today and he pronounced it fine - though he did describe exactly what happened to you Bear as a quite common complication which fortunately I don't have. So ff to stick head in dirty wa…
  • Just read back after being on holidays and seen the bit about there being a weird smell a week ago last thurs - I noticed that too but thought it was just me! Then I ended up in A and E on Thursday night with a horribly sore  eye, doc said it was s…
  • erk! Hope yours is OK now? Have appointment with optician on Wednesday for check so hopefully it will be OK for tri on Sunday...
  • LMH - no prob with leaving to prove for longer than needed - you could always put them somewhere not quite so warm as you would otherwise?
  • Thanks guys - optician is a great idea, will call today. Tried NHS direct, but their recorded message is telling you to go away unless it's dire as they are overwhemed with swine flu!
  • Just popping in after a week in Northumberland - just finished reading back. Not much running over the last week, except for Lyke Wake at the beginning of our hol - joined my pal Sheila for the last 24 miles (actually more running than walking due…
  • VR, yes I did have the goggles on, so don't understand it, but I suppose its easy to scratch your eye and then I did wash the goggles out with lake water to stop them fogging up. I too have wondered which bit of the horse I have, probably the pooey…
