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.

@cidlad good luck with the dog..you've probably seen that there are races out there for people who want to run with dogs..and some of them have seriously impressive pbs (the pooches, not the owners!)

bit of a mess-up tonight..started changing at work and then realised I'd forgotten my trainers of all things..that meant i had to rush home on the tube, change there, then sprint to hyde park for my club run..ended up doing 3k extra for 14k at 5.15m/km

Welcome to your new companion, cidlad - many happy miles lie ahead! 

Talking of dogs, during my early morning 10k, I was loudly barked at by a miniature Schnauzer and intrigued by its large companion, which its owner said was a Black Russian Terrier  - but he had brown leg markings instead of being all black.  I thought this a wind up but.....http://www.akc.org/breeds/black_russian_terrier/index.cfm

cidlad: A dog to run with, sounds good.

5M Fartlek in thick fog up here.

SR: Seems like you're going well.

Thanks for the good wishes - a 9 month old beagle who needs plenty of excercise should be good company on those cold winter morning runs - on a lead for a while until he gets to know the routes through the woods and park

happy running everyone

6.24 miles yesterday morning - 3 miles down - 3 miles up managed to maintain a semi even pace throughout.

Good luck with the dog cidlad, hope he runs less mentally than out little fella does (thinks he's a Husky that needs to pull me along with him)

6m steady today, such a mild morning again, those bracing mornings are going to be a shock to the system when they inevitably arrive in the next few weeks

guv001: the line break on your last post comes in a rather unfortunate place. Still, well done. I suppose such problems will get us all in the end.

4.5 miles yesterday, in the gloaming. Ran up a ruddy great hill, a lap of the golf course atop it and back down in the dark. Starting to ease down now in preparation for Bath hilly half in ten days - a race for which I am remaining bullishly optimistic, despite all signs pointing towards a probably painful death.

A brilliant 8.42 mile run around a mountain trail. A lot of up and some steep down but overall that route is the reason I run.

Wed 7m 1:06:xx

Another mild evening run, down the river and through the industrial estate, 2 minutes a mile quicker on average tonight, bit more of a tempo run.

15/11/2012 at 20:31

Just a short 6.28 miles tonight.

15/11/2012 at 21:09

MattDA - enjoy the taper leading up to Bath

Thur - 7.30pm - 14km steady pace (garmin free) - first time on the pavements for a while - rest day tomorrow 

keep it going everyone

Thurs 9m 1:38:xx

Jog Scotland tonight, I was in the 5 mile group, did a little over with a 2 mile run there and another 2 back.  Another unseasonally mild evening up here in the highlands, not that I'm complaining

15/11/2012 at 23:34
Last long(ish) run of 11.4 miles @ 9:30 tonight as I now start to taper for Clowne. I've got the miles in my legs so looking forward to the big day and hopefully sub 2 hours in my first race.

Morning and 4 easy miles.

16/11/2012 at 08:33

Well, this morning was supposed to be an easy 6 miles but it turned into a 6 mile fartlek with added dog drama.

Woman had lost her Beagle so I said i'd keep my eyes out on my run.  Cue much sprinting back and forth with messages from the general public about this errant hound and then eventually running after it, capturing it and handing it back to an elated owner.

Totally buggered up my pace for the easy run but a nice feeling to be involved in a happy reuinion between woman and fury friend.

 

Rest day tomorrow, the first in 10 days.

Good deed of the day SB

8.8 miles this misty morning. Nice easy pace with a bit of effort at the end.

Quiet day in the office today so I'm planning running route for the weekend. Staying at a friends in St Margarets which I think is near Richmond Park - any tips for routes in these kinda areas?

Lots of beagles around

My kids have generously shared their bugs with me again- 3rd time in as many months    So I've not been out for a few days.  Just tried to go out this morning and had to stop after 2 miles. Stupid of me really as I'm *supposed* to be doing a 10k race on Sunday.  Need to lie down
