sat am - tried a hill training session with the club. 45mins of "Kenyan Hills" (ie continuous hill-running) in Greenwich Park..very tough, but hoping these sessions will make me stronger for xc and other races.

very envious of anyone out running today because it's beautiful out!

baldbloke - Indeed it was (and regarding the hills - indeed it will)

Sun 7.30am - 20.5km (1.30) 

early morning run - pushed on throughout and felt good - ran with someone this morning and we pushed each other - pavements a little icy and therefore slippy - more of that to come over the winter

keep it going everyone

Sun 14.4 miles 2:38:xx

A hilly 14 miles today, through some of the most georgous countryside, I think this it why I love to run.

19 miles round south Birmingham canals and roads yesterday morning , furthest I have ever ran in training

A trecharous 12.5 miles tempo today in the ice. Rained heavy last night and then froze, very hard to stay on my feet at times and nearly went over a couple of times.

Did the Heanor 10k Christmas race and got a sub 40 time for the first time! Really pleased, freezing cold but sunny and beautiful scenery (once out of the industrial estate!). Last 200m hurt, uphill nastiness!

well done timinho - hope to get sub 40 myself in the near future

Mon 11am - easy 8km woodland run with my friend Fudge - he appears to enjoy running alongside me on his lead - it may be some time before I would trust him off his lead - probably end up in a different county

good running everyone

22.5 miles in my barefoot shoes, its my longest barefoot run ever but my fastest ever over 20 miles, by some margin,

6 mile recovery, started in almost total darkness, finished in almost full daylight.  Looks like the depressing 2 months of running mainly in the dark is now back to say hello.

Cidlad, we have had our dog for 14 months and I wouldn't trust him to run off the lead yet, he's a right tearaway.

Birkmyre, good effort !

What time do you get up mate ? I could'nt go out that early the lanes have no lights, about 7:30 is the earliest for me..

6m easy, first mile with the dog.  The bugger was not for running today.

standard lunchtime run of Regents Park plus 2xPrimrose Hill for 8.5k at 5.10m/km. very autumnal out. the running coach's advice about arm technique on hills definitely seems to work...

20/11/2012 at 14:52

5.7 miles on Sunday afternoon. Again in the hills, again in the mud. Did my usual hilly route, but cut out as much of the inbetween flat stuff as I could to make it short, but still hilly.

Have enjoyed my foray into the hills in preparation for my hilly half marathon, but am looking forward to getting back on the roads for a bit so I can go a bit faster and not be covered in mud up to my knees when I get home.

10k round Waterloo & Crosby Marina before 7am - greeted by an over-familar black Labrador who was seeking out every source of moisture he could!

20/11/2012 at 18:07

21k mostly off road, wytham wood, misty rainy and warm ish.  love a bit of mud.  and some gentle hilly-ness

20/11/2012 at 20:47

Fartleks with club tonight.

20/11/2012 at 23:08

swittle - must be the pheromones

Tue 10pm - 8km hard fartlek woodland trail - included 4 x 3min fast efforts

used a new headtorch which is a useful piece of kit and comfortable to wear - good for the off road stuff (which seems to be 75% of my runs at the moment)

dig in everyone

6 mile tempo this morning, one of the wettest runs in ages.  Thank you Manchester.


21/11/2012 at 08:56

Blimey, if someone in Manchester says it's wet then it must be really wet !

5 miles last night (in the dry !) including 3 miles at half marathon pace. Legs felt good and looking forward to my first half marathon on Sunday

21/11/2012 at 11:14

  It was wet, even for Manchester!
