My first 10 mile run. Beautiful run along the beach. x

An evening 6.53 miles at 6:40 min pace, quoted on McMillian as an easy run (it didn't feel that way). Although it was quite windy the sun was shining, a beautiful autumn evening.

This time last week I posted that I'd just done my longest ever run of 18 miles in 2hrs 35mins. Well, I've just beaten it, as I did 20 miles today in 2hrs 52mins. The last 6 miles or so were really hard.

Another good day for it, fresh, calm and dry.

I feel that I'm pretty much ready for my first ever marathon (Dublin at the end of October).

Sun 7.00am - 25km

a bit slower than normal as one of my fellow runners was struggling and I felt that I had to stay with him - we got round............eventually  but it was very stop-start

no more runs over 15km until the marathon which is two weeks today

dig in everyone

Just completed my first proper Tempo session (previously I thought I just had to run 30 sec faster than my recovery pace). Managed to do 2 mile WU - 4 miles at 5:53 m/m pace and a 2 mile WD. It was one of the hardest sessions I've done, even worse than intervals (which I have come to enjoy).

21.15 miles at 7.16 m/m pace this morning.

Following the RW half marathon plan for the BUPA Great Birmingham Run on the 21st October and today was my 10 mile long slow distance run.
Everything went well with me keeping a nice pace and finished in 1 hour 41 minutes and 18 seconds. Really wanted to run on and do the 13.1 miles, but stuck to the plan.
Now have great confidence in completing the half marathon.
Next week is the longest training run of 12 miles.

I've not been on here for a while.  I've been having a hard few weeks with both kids starting new schools- the 11 year old at secondary and the 4 year old at primary.  Lots of change / emotion added to usual busyness of work, life etc.  Running / me time has fallen by the wayside. i only managed to run a couple of times last week but that included another good 11 miles where I felt strong and positive with energy in the tank.  Today just a 5k but I'm enjoying that distance ATM.  Hopefully things will be a bit easier in the coming week and I can get into some sort of routine again with kids, life, then running.  Dig in all, there is some great running going on here from what I've seen

Nice leisurely 10 miles this morning - out the door just after five! Have felt utter rubbish since last Sundays 10k as I got my sons cold and he's been sleeping really badly because of it so we've all just been knackered. Hoped to be able to get back in the groove with a 10 mile LSR on Sunday but after going to the Tockington Tri and being dragged around the shops for hours afterwards by my wife, I had a blinding headache by the time we got home and felt like I could sleep for a week. Early night and woken at four by the baby so I thought - what the hell, lets get this done! Glad I did.

recovery run round Regent's Park and Primrose Hill for 7k at 5.15m/km. feeling good. turned out that the guy who won my 10k on Saturday had been in the Olympic 800metres, so t least i can say I lost to an Oympian!

Just shy of 9 miles on a very odd cross country route yesterday. Took a map, tried to follow some footpaths, got very lost but eventually found my way home.

Feeling fine today so I have just entered the Stroud Half.

just shy of 6 miles yesterday. quite a slow jog. even had to stop a couple of times. went out for 60 mins, hoping to cover nearer 6.5 miles, managed 5.93

i put it down to poor sleep the previous night. or something.

Recovery run of 1 hour today - a bit long for a RR but felt good just taking it easy 8.14 miles total.

forgot that I spot some decent wildlife - a couple of exotic parrots, in fact, squawking their heads off. but, then again, they were in London Zoo, so doesn't really count.

Entered Stroud on the weekend too. Good luck!

Forced rest day today due to power cut / hot water issues at home - grrr
