Not posted for some time here but still running every day.  Streak = 592 days today  

Since Sunday, it's been one 5-miler and five 10ks!

Welcome back swittle

3M easy for me today.

9.5 miles for me today.  Still can't crack the 10 miles- this regressing business has been going on since May now.  I was easily knocking out 10-12 miles every week before then, and my disastrous HM in June, now I crumble at 7-8 miles.  I need to do something. Firstly I think face the inevitable pulling out of October's (16 mile) race.  Then maybe focus on 5 and 10ks.... problem is I keep procrastinating about it....

I had a good run last night. 6 miles in 48 minutes which is the longest I've been able to maintain that pace for. I'm struggling to get to 10 miles at the moment but I've got a few weeks before the Great South Run and then need to build again for the Trowbridge Half Marathon in December. It seems like a big ask.........

Nessie73 - what you have achieved before you can and will achieve again

Sat 4.30am - imsomniac run (14km - garmin free) - I always enjoy the occasional run in the middle of the night although it is impractical apart from the odd weekend when work isn't an issue - slower run to try and get some recovery into my legs - bit apprehensive about tomorrow's long run (21 mile) - last week was no fun

good weekend running everyone

Hedge: good for you running 6M in 48mins. All the best.

First time I've ran HM distance in a couple of years today. I entered a local race on the spur of the moment and am delighted I did.

It was the first time this race has been held and it was superb. Great course, well organised (except for an underestimation on the number of porta loos), really friendly atmosphere. Even the weather was perfect.

Almost forgot, I even did a PB.

To top it all, they were handing out beers on the finish line ! ! !

Ok it was alcohol free, but even so walking around with a beer immediately after a race was nice.

Sun 7.00am - 35km (3.08)

cool and dry early morning run - managed to get round and got rid of a few demons from last Sunday - easy pace but still had to grind the last few km out - one more long run to go - feeling better today than a week ago

good effort everyone

Maidenhead half this morning.  42 seconds outside my PB at 1.24.48.

Still I suppose it is my first long race since my marathon last April.

Thanks for the welcome back, birkmyre   The spam invasion makes finding meaningful threads very tricky 

Y'day evening, 10k late on round Crosby Coastal Park & up the beach to log 42 miles for the week: a 5-miler and six 10ks.   I blame the Streak!

8 mile LSR this morning. Really enjoyed it. Last long run before a 10k race next Sunday and then, it's all about the Bath Hilly Half in November.

Round Norfolk Relay. Superb club event, superb scenery, superb atmosphere. More laughs than I've had on a weekend for a very long while.

as for the running, managed 17k in 1hr 25minutes on 2hrs sleep. pretty pleased with this as it scales up to a massively improved HM time of 1.45ish, and, of course, it's a PB at 17k given it's the first and only time I'll ran that distance!

looks like we've all get lots of great races this autum, so good luck to everyone!

Sun 9:40 14 miles (2:40)

Distance pb for me today, first 9 miles felt good, last 5 were a struggle, weather was quite warm and a little overcast, would have loved a brisk shower in the last few miles

16/09/2012 at 23:08
Ran a nice slow 11k this morning including a couple of good hills. Feeling good about my first ever 10k race next Sunday. Looking forward to it.

Morning. An easy 4M today done.

Stewart C: well done.

17/09/2012 at 08:19

10 mile LSR yesterday. I must be getting fitter because I barely even noticed it.

Hola all,

Back from a week in Dartmouth. Blissfull runs along the river/coast including some good climbs at Blackpool and Slapton sands. Did 40 miles over 5 runs all at a slow pace with lots of stops for sightseeing and stone skimming. Wildlife - Heron, egrets and a seal!

8.8M this morning at an easy pace, back to intervals tomorrow and then taper for a 10K this Sunday.

Mon - 8.00pm - 1 hour on treadmill

Enjoyed concentrating on posture while running on an even surface - I find the treadmill useful.......in moderation

good effort everyone
