Tried to think of witty title but failed miserably!

 

Somehow managed to totally mess up and cant access my previous blog - something to do with putting wrong email address down and then trying to edit it ...and dont ask me what happened to the photo - used to be a nice palm tree thingy and now got this grey black splurge! I wish I understood computers better....

Anyway - here we are with blog no 2.

Running gnr for 2nd time - looking forward to it now but will prob feel different in 5 weeks time! Raised big dosh last year( over £1000) but dont feel I can ask friends to sponsor me again so soon so will be running a couple of fundraisers over next 2 weeks - coffe morning/guess my time sort of thing to raise a bit for Cancer Research

Done my first post GNR run - a nice easy 4 miles with Gill and Pauline yest morning followed by bacon  butties and reminiscing .... plus excitedly finding our photos on marathon photo site. I didnt have any last year at all , and only 2 this year...

  Well done everyone! I havent read all your blogs yet - am looking forward to hearing all of your stories! Incredible day with some ups and downs along the way. Very emotional at the start setting off with training partne...

Well - a little sad this morning as prob my last blogging session . Really looking forward to the day now - hope legs hold out the distance. Want to beat my time of last year but really will just see where the day takes me ! Did nice ...

Too Hot Too tired Too late

Was planning run tonight ( 4 miles ) but not going to happen for all the aforementioned reasons ( ahem - excuses?) - work busy busy busy so wont get away at planned time to meet mate to run. Tired because I dont know why but just am! And too hot ...

A valuable lesson

 Decided to rehearse routine a bit for next week so up early , porridge for brekkie , lots of fluid ( but not too much!), put gel in pocket to practise breaking open and swallowing on the hoof.  All going well , bending over to put on...

A bit of fun...

Planned to do early run yesterday but p'd down all day and only brightened up late afternoon. Considered running in rain to see what it felt like but decided that I probably knew already ( ie wet and cold) and would just deal with it on day if ne...

Thank goodness for computer h...

Well - not been able to log in for a couple of days as had computer problems. After many frantic phone calls to computer knowledgeable friends and hours spent checking my set up and suchlike,finally got prob sorted by phoning nice man called Kevi...

Forgot to put time dowm - want to keep record for comparison next year... 10.2 miles 1h 37

Thats it then...

...the last long run before 1/10 - sounds like most of us are at the same stage. Well done everyone on your w/e runs. I didnt do quite as far as I had hoped - mixture of reasons ( excuses really!) - poor sleep the night before,my runn...

We are all on google!

Just type in Great North Run followed by your name and hit search. Seems to work for everyone. Except me - I typed in my name and got Tracy's blog - not sure why! So sorry Christian and Phil - not such an exclusive club - seems they let anyone in!

Just a quickie!

 Did 4 miles as planned      - very hot and muggy so didnt push it as hate running in those conditions and as usual didnt drink enough beforehand . Must get more organised in mornings! Enjoyable but uneventful run - nothing startling on time fron...

So many blogs....

...and so little time - both to read them all and to feel properly prepared for 1/10. Think I'm doing a lot better with the former.Oh well !  Decided to do something a bit different from my usual runs - well , different for me anyway....

Zippedy do dah...

What a wonderful day! A good to be alive day! A glad I got out of bed day! From the above you may guess I had a good run today. It wasnt particularly fast but I just enjoyed it! Like most of us , got up early to avoid predicted hot we...

Go Sharks!

  Hello peeps! Had a funny week when really havent felt up to par - think Ive had a nonspecific virally sort of thingy - everything was a bit of a struggle. Did another short run Fri-  3.9miles - felt really ha...

At last!

Yey! Finally my race pack has arrived. Im pink which is prob about right as predicted about 2 - 2.15. A bit bemused as to how they work it out as my friend who is doing it for for first time and put slower ETA is in orange.Still , no matter, she ...

fed up

Really fed up now! Just spent ages adding a blog after worst run ever and blinking thing just disappeared into the big black blog hole . Plus my stupid new wireless keyboard isnt working properly. Dont ask me why. One good...

Disorgnised or what!

  Just realised that my passport is out of date! How can this be? - it had months left when we went skiing in April ( yes , yes - I know that was months ago!) - now really worried that won't get it back for my flight up to Newcastle,G...

I know I will regret this....

 Had good run this evening - only a short 4.5 miler as had to get back to kids ( hubby's rugby training night ) - legs felt heavy , poss a hangover from Sundays effort,so didnt push it and simply enjoyed being out there. As ever , didnt seem to m...

Rubbish in, Rubbish out

  I am now again on speaking terms with my computer ( read intoduction for more info) but relations are still strained. Whilst I suspect my problems are mostly of my own making , hence post title , I would never of course admit this t...
