Well done Dee

Dee - doing a HM next year sounds reasonable to me. Right now you are doing 5K .. by gradually increasing your mileage over the next couple of months you will soon be up to 10k distance. And then its just a matter of continuing to gradually build up the distance on your long slow runs if you decide to enter a HM. Sounds easy doesn't it? It isn't because you have to work at it but it CAN be done! Well done re the RFL .. those walkers were a bit of a nuisance .. just shout at them next time!

Q - that was a good run on Thu morning .. around 8:30 m/m pace so great going from you.

Went out for my last long run before next weeks hilly 10ml race. Did the same 10ml route as on the last few weekends (it has long slopes rather than hills) and I got round in 1hr 42min (10:30 m/m pace). I felt better today and only had one 2min walk break. So if I can repeat that next Sunday at the race I'll be happy.

Good running Mel, good luck for next week

Ran a decent 10 mile's this morning

Q - well done re your 10ml run.

Had a message from my friend Voley who is also doing the Ridgeway Run next Sunday. She has previously warned me not to expect smooth running and to keep an eye out for tree roots, rabbit holes etc. Now she has warned me it is a bit wet over there at present and likely to be muddy and slippy underfoot next Sunday. So I just need to hope for a dry week to dry out the ground between now and then (and looking out of the window today - fat chance of that!).

Q 10 miles I dream of being able to run that far

Mel thanks for the advice I know it's not going to be easy, but I'll give it a shot providing the leg holds out.

Managed two training runs this week one just under 3 miles (legs still ached a bit from the RFL) and another one tonight just over 3 miles but in a quicker time than the first one took.
Hopefully get another run I. At the weekend and try for 3.5 - 4 miles all being well.

Happy running x

Well done booktrunk

Hi there - busy week at work so not had a chance to get on here until today.

I completed my 9.7ml race last Sunday in 1hr 49m 28s. It was a glorious morning with sunshine and as we were running around Ashridge Woods the autumn colours and scenery during the race were fantastic. They took your mind off the big hills of which there were several. There were spectating opportunities and my family cheered me on at a couple of points along the race route and at the finish. You have to watch your feet in places with tree roots, mud and rabbit holes to contend with but that to me just added to the challenge and the fun. I managed to go over on my left ankle on a fairly flat section - it has been a bit stiff this week but I think I'll be out running again in a few days time.

Have just entered a 10k around Castle Combe race track (25th Nov) so I will concentrate on improving my speed over the next 6 weeks or so.

 good running mel, hope the ankle gets better soon

Welcome back Booey

Q - pleased to report I ran this morning (3.2ml in 32:20) and the ankle didn't cause any problems.

Ran in my new Saucony Guide 5 shoes and new Hilly socks (made me realise how worn out the old shoes and socks are). Hoping to get out again on Wed and Fri. Am on 'lates' at work this week .. don't have to get in until 9:30am so am able to run at 6:30am before work .. it's nice to get the run out of the way and relax for the rest of the day!

28/10/2012 at 17:32
Just me here these days then?
29/10/2012 at 09:22

well done on the running mel

hi Dee how's your running going


30/10/2012 at 08:23

Did my first long(ish) run in my new Saucony shoes on Sunday morning. Did my medium loop around Ciren Park (7.2 miles) and apart from having to stop to re-tie the laces (at the top of the hill .. very convenient!) no problems with them. Note to self - must get on and buy some new Hilly socks .. the current ones are getting a bit thin in places.

Hi Q,

Not too bad having to split my running between tready and road as keep picking up niggles. Doing a bit of cross training too, so swimming I between runs. How's your running going?

Mel - I love the feeling if new trainers its bliss.
