Fri 6.00am - 5km woodland trail - easy paced - short but sweet

woke up early and just fancied getting out this morning before work - unusual for me.

DunkyD - shame on you for having a lie in

good running everyone

Thurs 5.73 59 mins

Hill reps last night, 6 sets, 1.5 warm up followed by 2 miles with a 800m effort. tough session but I'm glad I've done it

15 miles easy.  Lovely clear early morning in Bury, colder and misty as I ran into Hawshaw.  Sunny again by the time I got back to Bury.  All pavement apart from an impromptu bit of trail running for a very necessary call of nature.

cross-country debut at the Met League in Stevenage...huge fun, great atmosphere and so much more interesting to negotiate mud and slopes rather than Garmin-watching all the way round. 8.2k at 4.45m/km. as this is only 10 secs per km off by 10k PB pace, am pretty pleased with the time too! bring on more muddy stuff!

baldbloke - glad it went well

Sat 7.00pm - 2.5km warm up / 8 x (1min fast - 1min slow) / 2km warm down

off road and muddy - enjoyable and useful session

acquired a rescue dog today and hope to eventually end up with a running companion - bit of training needed first..........for the dog and me

dig in everyone

Good evening, all.  Left it 'til 8 this evening to extend the Streak to 650 days with a road/beach 5-miler around Crosby & Blundellsands in the rain.

Hope you're all fit, well and enjoying your running.

swittle - that is some streak

Sun 7.00am - 17.5km (1.26) - damp chilly morning for an enjoyable easy run - felt a little jaded but went at a comfortable pace - nice way to ease into the day

happy running everyone

Thanks, cidlad - force of habit 

Good mileage * an early start for you: well run!

New runner - 2.4 miles, 9pm at night on a 0.8 mile circuit around old warehouses in Leeds. No cars, no people, perfectly flat tarmac and crisp cold air.

Excellent race report Baldy.  I'm a x-country afficionado now since doing it with the club.  times go out of the window and it's all about having fun eh!?  Although your times are still looking pretty impressive.  

swittle- in awe, as always.  Absolutely amazing am guessing you've been in good enough health for the last (nearly) two years to run every day... is this *because* you run every day? I wonder.

Me- saddled with 3 kids today, only one of whom was mine, and hubby out for the day with my son, paintballing for his 12th bday. So I tried something new and went up to a small field in a clearing in the forest at the top of the road, gave the kids a ball and a frisby, and did laps around the field.  They lasted without moaning for about 3 miles, and well- as they say, it was better than a kick up the backside!

Managed a 4.1 mile slow run this afternoon.  My foot is still not 100% but I couldn't wait any longer.

11.5 miles taking in the four main big hills around where I live. Lots of mud and sunshine and I arrived at the base of one hill in time to hear a chap with a bugle playing The Last Post at the top. I stopped for a minute, he played it again, and off I went on my way. Spine tingling to hear it ringing out across the valley.

Nessie73 - Running round kids in a field - v familiar with that. The other one I do is sprints with the kids timing me.

Today - wasn't planning on running but I was in the mood so hopped on the treadmill for
5 mins x 5mph
5 mins x 6mph
1 min x 7mph
1 min x 8 mph
3 min x 6 mph
Then 3 x
1 min x 7 mph
1 min x 8 mph
3 min x 5 mph

Followed by 15 mins of core work (p90x Ab ripper x DVD)

I'd like to have my recoveries at 6 mph rather than 5, but I was pleased with the workout

10 miles on the treadmill.  Taking it easy recovering from a sore hamstring.

MattDA - That sounds incredible

6 mile recovery today.  Run of two halves,  First 3 miles was hard, terrible hangover and felt it.  Second half, hangover waned and felt like I could run for ever at recovery pace as normal.

20 miles yesterday morning. After 0.5 miles a steep hill in a place called Shatton. When I finally got up it I felt I had been. Then took in a hill round ladybower reservoir where climbing boots and axe would have been more appropriate. However, it was a beautiful morning and some gorgeous scenery so I really enjoyed it. A slow 10 mile run this evening followed by a nice hot bath Xmas now with a beer to round of a good weekend
