1st longish run of the year 15.5 miles mixed terrain but mostly road
Lovely morning - Down to Tshirt and could have used shorts

Thanks Jason. I'm beginning to get some form back. The last two years I've been plagued with one injury after another. Hence why I've missed the last two Snods.

evening al!  No shorts for me , but I did a nice little 8 miler this morning with some friends, so just an easy 'chatty' run. Planning an off road 12 miles tomorrow.

 Won't be on swiss valley track morrow Jason... I'm heading into Pembrey forestry!!

Wm- fingers crossed for this year
OH and jenf- you could get into trouble with all this running without shorts!
6.5m recovery run for me this evening. Dark, but clear and surprisingly calm and warm
05/01/2013 at 20:33
Jenf- don't get lost!!! 18m planned here up the SV path

Just got back from a 14 mile trail run with over 2100 feet of ascent. An afternoon on the sofa awaits me I think. Great run with some great company too. What's everyone else been up to today?

Wayne- well done

Great confidence boosting run for me today 18m with 1095m ascent (first half all uphill, second half downhill) in 2.04.45 (6.56 av) splits: 7:23 7:26 7:19 7:26 7:24 7:21 7:15 7:07 7:05 6:41 6:41 6:44 6:38 6:34 6:36 6:26 6:25 6:12

Other good news= 2.2 lbs weight loss this week and 100.74m run for the week. My first 3 figure week for a few months

Top running Jason. Pretty consistent splits too. You must be pleased with that ? Rest day for me tomorrow then back to it on Tuesday.
Well done on breaking 100 miles. IMPRESSIVE.

JD- quality. How do you stay injury free! Do you use a physio at all or have regular massages?
06/01/2013 at 15:18
WM- happy enough at this stage - long way to go!
Jed- I do get sports massage regularly- every 3 weeks or so, but also stretch every day....

Hi all

Well i have signed up for what will still be my 5th snod after having to miss out last year at the last moment.I am hopefully going to have a better year this year running wise and have started to plan the year ahead,was looking at the Anglesey half marathon on march 3rd as my first race are any of you guys doing it?

Hope your shoulder is on the mend Trex,are you back out running yet?

Longest run of the year so far felt tired from the start and had to push myself to go been nights all week.but 15 miles just done in 1.52 on a hilly course avg.7.29 so happy its done.

Hey a few more names back to join us. Another nice few runs completed team, well done. RR, may do Anglesey Half after John Bach's recommendation but may have another cunning plan. Gotta think about it first though as I make break what's left of my body! Couldn't go running yesterday as body decided it needed a complete re-fuelling. Constant eating of crap all day rendered me beached however a weigh-in this morning showed I had managed to lose 4 pounds over Christmas which was a shock. I can ill afford to lose that much when I only weigh 7 stone normally.  Anyway, suitably re-fuelled, 19 miles completed today in thick fog and massive carb load session afterwards. Aim for weekut on 4 pounds!!

TR40 et al - had another X-ray and the (vertical) gap between the two broken bits of clavicle is filling with bone nicely but I have some damage to the deltoid nerve which runs in a groove alongside this bone.  This produces bouts of pain in the upper arm, like a cross between an electic shock and a muscle tear.  I've found what seems to trigger it most is swinging the arm and rotating the torso, so when I'm finally back into running I will have to effect a motionless upper body technique ...


Great to hear all the stories and enthusiasm so long before the event.

T Rex jnr has taken up running!!  He's entered the Cardiff half in October along with his girlfriend. He is very fit from climbing and biking, does a bit of triathlon, and feels 1:50 is a good target for a first race, which he announced eyeing me suspiciously.  I said I'll enter as well and aim for 1:40!!


I've got a feeling he's going to be training hard over the next few months ...


Trouble is I'm doing my local LDWA 27-mile Challenge event the day before so I'm going to have to be at the top of my game to beat him.  Also doing Abingdon as well as SNOD in October, so a busy month.

Happy as I managed just over 9 miles today. I've really let my fitness drop after Loch Ness mara, but now I'm confident I'm back in the game for my half marathon in February. 

Just been sorting my rest of the year race plan. Looking good. Just running out of money signing up in races!

I know the feeling ...
