StewartC- nice one

Good evening, MLR crew    Another similar site to RW occupies much of my browsing time but I'm pleased to read of all your exploits!

Out at 0640 on a very windy, showery morning around Crosby; ventured down the beach but the side wind made it tricky, so I nipped inland.

5.1 miles, 44 mins.  Day 625 of the Streak.

Club run tonight.

Stewart: Well done on your Half

swittle: Well done on your streak.

4.5M Steady. Cold, dry, no wind. Okay run.

Tues 5 miles 56 mins.

gentle 5 miles, good to stretch the legs

cheers everyone

wed - 20 min loosener on the treadmill to get rid off some stiffness - the next few days will be very easy recovery and rest (swimming and pilates to vary things a little)

 I've reflected on Sunday's marathon in detail over the last couple of days and now realise how much more training will be involved to get to a 3.15 target for next year - not so much 'can I do it' as 'am I motivated enough to do it'

impressive running everyone - keep it steady

11.21 hilly miles round Kettering tonight.

Joined a club and did my first club run tonight - A 5.5 mile trot @ 6:30 m/m pace really enjoyed it and even spoke to few members.

Tonight- club run through Epping Forest with headtorches in the PISSING rain, through bogs and mud.  Around 4-5 miles. Got soaked to the skin and covered in mud and horse sh*t, and it was an excellent laugh  It's the first time I've done one of the night runs with headtorches and I've always thought the women who do it are absolute nutters. They are, and I can't wait for the next one

9 mile steady state with a few fast bursts thrown in tonight.

18/10/2012 at 19:50

5M Fartlek this morning. Opps forgot to post this earlier !

18/10/2012 at 21:29

Track session tonight.  6 by 400m plus 6 by 800m.

18/10/2012 at 21:38

guv001 - 6.30m/m described as a trot? - you must be flying - keep it going

Nessie 73 - your last run sounds like a hoot - glad you enjoyed it!

Thur - 30 min easy pace on treadmill - building things up slowly over the next few days - easy does it

next aim is a crack at a sub 40 10km in the near future - hope to find a suitable race soon

good effort everyone

Cheers, birkmyre.  People's persistence in aiming to improve their running always gives me a huge lift.  There's no thread quite like this on RW 

5 miles 1st thing around Crosby, taking in the beach and grasslands behind the dunes, turned to cross country by recent rain 

19/10/2012 at 00:03

Thurs 18th 4.5 miles (45 mins)

Tough session this evening, hill reps, what doesn't kill us makes us stronger, so I hear

19/10/2012 at 06:12

4.5M Easy/Steady. Dry, no wind and no rain

swittle: Agreed good to come on here and realise what others are doing.  I used to have a Nike advert on my desk that said: 'You either ran today or you didn't.'

One of my work running colleagues used to walk past my desk if I was off, see that advert and it would motivate him to go out. he said 'The first thing you always ask: How far did you run yesterday ?'

Morning all,

Cidlad - enjoy the recovery! Nessie - that run sounds awesome. Good work all

4.5 miles this morning in the dark. Nice and easy ahead of Sunday's half.

Have a good weekend all,

You're right about that, apart from maybe Polio? I don't think that kills you but I don't think it makes you stronger?

Ran for the sheer hell of it last night, didn't even wear a watch, just got out there and gave it a good go for just under 6 miles. Good sometimes to remember that as much as I want my times to improve and I'm working on this, I actually live to be outside running. Really enjoyed bombing along feeling fit and well.
