  • I can't stop smiling after reading your post. Ta for cheering me up. I'm in a sulk cos can't run because of icy snowy pavements. Grr

    Well, what about you then ey! Not too shabby result that Rob!!! Wow! Great result that is and I'm so pleased. You deserve all the plaudits as you've put the work in. Paid off though, and with knobs on!

    Bask in the glory today, rest up tomorrow and then get back out there and keep on running. Go easy on the crisps. If that's your only treat, you're doing well.

  • Thank you Miss W :D you are very welcome :D sorry you cant get out becuase of the weather .Fingers crossed it will get better soon :D

    You really are too kind , 2 days rest as usual now then back to the longer run on tuesday :D crisp and maybe a shortbread biscuit after dinner as a treat :D

  • thanks northernspirit :) there always new goals to set and achieve :D no matter where you start from , When i started like you a 1 min run seemed like a life time and 30 mins running ,never mind at any sort of pace, seemed to be for the experienced and long time runners .. who i thought were beamed from another planet becuase how can any human run that fast !!
