6 mile easy, first 1.5 miles with the dog. 

Run a bit, a bit, a bit more, a bit more, poo.

The dog can be just as bad too.

SB -

Mon 9.00am - 8km woodland trail (ie. bog) - wet and getting wetter - although easy paced, still found it tough going - enjoying doing most of my runs off road at the moment - less impact and possibly helping to strengthen lower legs

good running everyone

Good work all

Sat - 9.1 miles over the hills playing in mud

Sun - 13.1 miles both run easy and relaxed

Legs feel fine today to. Clocked a PB of 46 miles last week!

some excellent running over the weekend - good to see! hope SR and guv001 are back at their best shortly!

nipped out in the lunchtime drizzle for Regents Park+Primrose Hill - 7.5k at 5.10m/km.

interesting to see photos from the Met League xc at the weekend - I am clearly one of the few runners with a bit of a belly...maybe my times would come down quicker if I just went on a diet!

Did my first trail run yesterday! I've just signed up for the Total Warrior challenge and realised I have to get super fit to be able to complete it.

I enjoyed it thoroughly although I found the route I chose to be very challenging. A lot of very steep muddy hills.Having said that, I'm not someone who believes in starting easy. I prefer to start hard and see my progress as it becomes easier. It was only 4 and a quarter miles but it was a slog.

Having a week of rest with very light gym work as I'm doing The Leeds Abbey Dash on Sunday. It's my first competitive run and as a new runner I'm hoping to get a sub 50 minutes finish time!! Fingers crossed.Can't see it happening to be honest but you never know!!

One of the people who sponsored me said they would give me an extra tenner if I beat Leeds Rhinos captain, Jamie Peacock so thats another target!!!

Another run tonight, did my first 5k didn't think I could run that far for a few more months at least. Chuffed!

Sun 13.14 2:30:xx

long run along the banks of the Caledonian canal, a lovely Autumn morning, the sun was out first thing but it clounded over by the finish.

Mon 5.12 1hr

Recovery run along the river Ness, the legs are feel great now

5 miles on the treadmill today nothing special but just glad to be back on it even if I'm taking my time.
13/11/2012 at 08:37

Well done smcc87, you should be chuffed mate.  I felt the same after my first 5k

Tempo run day today, always look forward to it as a break from all the steady stuff and a chance to really feel the heart pounding.  1mile easy, 4m tempo, 1m easy warm down.  Muggy in Manchester today for mid November, sweated like a beast.

13/11/2012 at 10:16

Yup, muggy in Cheltenham too.

@smcc - you'll be at 10K before you know it - well done.

@guv001 - WB - take it easy!

@stewartC - jealous of that route

6.4 miles this morning, run at 1/2 miles efffort 1/2 mile easy



13/11/2012 at 20:29

Nice one smcc

baldy- can relate to the 12 bellies... I like my food a bit too much and am one of the chubs in my running club..

Me- really struggling to find time ATM and only had half an hour (again) so I did a speed / threshold session.  It was actually challenging / good and I feel like I've done something worthwhile albeit for such a short period of time

13/11/2012 at 20:35

gosh! Some strong & long running here - well done, all! 

A slightly laboured 5 miles around Crosby Coastal Park at 0630 this morning.

13/11/2012 at 21:57

Hill session with club tonight.  Still a bit of a twinge in the hamstring despite wearing my tights.

5.5 miles on the trails this evening. Very windy on the coast of Spain today. Some holiday this is - it's lashed down with rain all day.
13/11/2012 at 22:21

Tue 9.00pm - 45 min treadmill

not the planned session for today but a long day at work (7.30am - 8.00pm) and just didn't have the inclination to leave the house - the treadmill has its uses - so I still feel as though I have done a useful session

some speedwork tomorrow?

keep it going everyone

4.5M Steadily  through smiry (light but persistant ) rain

Some good training going on, nice to see.

14/11/2012 at 08:24

guv - Well you will take a holiday in November

5.5 miles easy this morning.  Managed to keep the heart rate right down at 135ish today and still kept 9 m/m pace so very happy with my progress here.




14/11/2012 at 09:48

Tues 4.5 51:xx

It was a warm evening last night, 4.5 miles with the 4 mile group, a nice easy pace which most appreciated. 

14/11/2012 at 13:55

Wed  9.00am - 8km easy run

- ran to dogs trust to pick up our new dog - had a walk/run back home and got the feeling I have a new running companion for the next few years - I think he will improve at a greater rate than I will

dig in everyone

12.48 hilly miles round Kettering.  Part of the route went into the surrounding countryside and I slipped into a ditch in the dark.  No injuries but a bit muddy.  May invest in a head torch.
