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.

Hey IKFY,

Entered Stroud on the weekend too. Good luck!

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

5 x 1km intervals with a smattering of rest - total 8.1 miles.

5km 'race' with club tonight.  Slow time of 18.55 but understandable as hilly and  given the 21 miles on Sunday and the hours swim last night.

Tue - 9.00pm - 10km (garmin free)

well into my taper now - easing down on the distance and effort - did a pilates class yesterday - it made me realise how much core strength I am lacking at present - hope to stick with it over the forthcoming weeks in the hope that it will improve my running (posture)

happy running everyone

Cheers DunkyD

4.14 miles this early evening. Bit of rain halfway round. Didn't have much in my legs. Think they're heavy from Monday mornings 10 miler.

Feel like I'm getting back into it after a rubbish week last week but I really need to start getting in some off road hill runs soon.

Wed 7.00pm - 7.2km (30.10)

warmed up for 2km and pressed hard for the following 5km - enjoyed having a short sharp run for a change but I think easy runs for the next few days would be sensible

good running everyone

5M Fartlek done. Cold when out,  so wore gloves for 1st time this autumn.

04/10/2012 at 09:45

club run with a torrential rain shower for 11k at 5.10m/km. followed by a talk about the cross-country season for us club newbies - looks like a lot of muddy fun, and an excuse to get yet another pair of running shoes.

@cidlad take it easy, hope the ankle holds up for the big race. @dunkyd some good sessions - you must be heading for a sub-45 10k, i would think!

Hola,

8.8miles plod along this morning. Giant pigs and 4 magpies together, so I'm betting my pregnant friend has a boy.

@baldbloke did a 10k a couple of weeks ago and did 45:09 - grrr, it did have a congested first 2k though  Aiming for a sub 1:40 HM in a couple of weeks which'll be 5 mins off my PB but I've been puttnig the work in so fingers crossed.

@ cidlad - ahh, the 14th, good luck for then, then. Where is it?

big10k, Bexhill on sea.. my first ever 10k run. Finished in 51.02. Since I have only been running for 4 months, i am quite chuffed with the time. Signed up for my first half marathon in 5 weeks.. it's gonna hurt !

On Tues eve. Tipping down and cold - ran 4.25 miles in 33.38. Absolutely busted a gut doing it. Ran with a friend who put's in a very serious 43 minute 10k and he reckons I'm improving rapidly. I've just started running again after a year out through a mixture of family issues, Injury etc and it feels amazing to be out and around. Let the mind wander - thought about future runs, thought about wine, wondered if United will win the Prem (no they won't) remembered part of my route from my childhood .. Good run. Good to be back.

Went out on Exmoor today because the forecast was good! Did 23 km in 2h 40m, very hilly, went up to the highest point on the moor. Got a couple of good soakings but felt strong; preparation for the Exmoor Stag seem to be going well! Saw several Deer, an aircraft taking off from a field, a 22 Sqn. Sea King flying low and as ever the most spectacular views in the world. Have a good feeling of satisfaction

10 by 400ms with club tonight.

04/10/2012 at 21:21

10 x 90 secs on 45 secs off tonight, did an average of 450m for 90 secs.
