Gareth- use the stopwatch on your iPod to time you and then map it on mapmyrun. That'll be a reasonably accurate way to know.  Or even better if you've got a smartphone you can download a free app- I use imapmyrun but others are available!

Today I couldn't get out until 11 am (younger kid was poorly over night and still has a temperature) and it was HOT in London- around 28-29 degrees.  So despite my best intentions to do 11-12, I only managed 8 miles. Bit disappointed as I stupidly went on my usual route down the river towpath where there was NO shade, and I took a stupidly small amount of water with me.. so I had to give up at 8 miles as I was feeling really rough.

Sun 7.00am - 25km

beautiful morning - set out aiming to do 32km and felt reasonable up to half marathon distance - then started feeling absolutely wasted - managed to get to 25k and just could not carry on - quite concerned as I can normally battle on through the discomfort - had a long walk back (7km) - I have no answers why - I had a drink and energy gel with me

put it behind me and move on

keep it going everyone

21.09 miles at 7.14 m/m pace.  Faster this week to evade cyclist attacks.

A nice paced recovery run picking up the pace for 2 mins in every 10 this morning. 6.5 miles in the end. Did 5 mins barefoot this evening to test the water, I suppose I'll find out in the morning how out of condition my calves are.....

My village's 10K race this morning. Had a terrible hangover from last night. Got round just about. God there are some athletes round here!

A couple of cracking runs this weekend on holiday down in Devon. A relatively easy 4 miles in the early morning mist one way along the coastal path, on Saturday morning and then a not so easy 7 miles in the other direction this morning. Nice change of scenery. Only wildlife to report: a lot of rabbits.

Morning and a 4.5M Fartlek done. Smiry rain on, dreich too !

B*gger. Picked up a problem with my left achilles, so I'm resting this week and doing some stretches. I was supposed to do the Lichfield 10k yesterday, but decided that discretion was the better part of valour, and just went along to cheer on my friend.

Keep up the good work everyone.

looks like everyone's getting plagued by Achilles problems...speedy recovery to Squawk and Cidlad

lunchtime run round Regent's Park and Primrose Hill for 7k at 5.22m/km. continue to feel strong.

Did 9 miles in an hour this evening and felt strong. It must of been that recovery run I did yesterday.

Morning 4 easy miles

Good 9 miler guv.

Early one today as I'm travelling for the rest of it. 8.21 miles. Back to running outside tomorrow after being stuck on a hotel treadmill for the last 4 days, can't wait.

4 miles in the forest this afternoon

Much better running conditions here down sarf.  ie. cooler

4.15 miles back in the old familiar lanes. Despite what I said on a thread yesterday about never having trouble with motorists, I had two annoy me today, both for the same thing. Road really too narrow for them to pass me, I don't want to jump into the nettles, but on both occasions, there was a layby just ahead of me on my side. Both times I sped up considerably to get to the layby, both times the car insisted on squeezing past me anyway, rather than wait a few seconds more.

Tue 8.00pm - 1 hour on the treadmill

Haven't treadmilled for quite some time, so it made a nice change to get aboard - Torrential rain outside which helped with my decision  

just about getting over Sunday's poor run - it will be interesting to do another long run at the weekend and see how things are - I guess training for a marathon can create lots of ups and downs - I'll be glad when I can get bck to plain old running for fun

dig in everyone

4.5M Steadily plodded for me today. Never really got going if you know what I mean.

12/09/2012 at 08:16

easy run of 9 miles @ 7:15mm average last night.

12/09/2012 at 10:42

6 miles this morning. Going to try to switch to mornings if I can - just have a problem getting out of bed. Lovely route across fields which have been quagmires for months and which are now lovely long, dry wild grass. A great run in the autumn sunshine.

5 miles this morning in a ridiculous Southerly wind on the West Coast of New Zealand's North Island  Gorgeous scenery but a horrendous head wind on the way out, looked forward to a tail wind on the way back but the wind changed direction and I was blown sideways for the most part


12/09/2012 at 19:56

Intervals tonight. Did 9x400 @ 1:25 w/ 50 sec recovery. Quite windy so I hit a headwind every 100m of the track, so was harder than expected.
