Cold and frosty one again, brrrrr.

5M Fartlek done and I'm just thawing out

Beautiful this morning.  The sun was yet to rise but the tree lined route I run along was lit up by the big, bright moon.  Everything had an amazing white hue to it due to the thick frost being lit by the moonlight.  Yeah, it was cold but cold in a good way.  I could run in weather like that forever.

6 miles steady.

Rest up and speedy recovery SR.

Me- 5-6 miles easy garmin-free this morning.

Fri 7.00pm - 14km (garmin free)

warmed up after a few minutes - easy run - hat and gloves a must tonight -

looking forward to a few runs on the grass as it gets more icy - less slippy.

good running weekend

Sat midday - 6km tempo run (25 min) - didn't hold back too much

fancied a short sharp workout - need to be able to run quicker than this by Feb - felt like a good little effort - ran on woodland trail which was muddy so there is probably room for improvement timewise

dig in everyone

5.5 mile recovery run this evening - last indoor run hopefully going to try my first run outside in 3 weeks tomorrow.

8.3 mile run that was supposed to be longer but was shortened and done at an appalling pace due to 2 hours of sleep and a hangover...

the joy of saturday

1st Dec - 2.18m - 20:18

Well hi everyone I am the originator of this thread, Jasban. I was just checking something and this thread was advertised so I thought I'd drop in. I have dropped off running some what. After finsihing the VLM in 2011 the running tailed off.

Today I went out in the freezing cold in the early hours up to the Woody Press and back. Afterwards I jumped on Kermit and went for an easy cycle to Hayes ?polish and home. trying to not slide off.

Keep on running!

hope to see you joining into your thread a bit more Jasban

Sun 7.00am - 13km (garmin free)

didn't really feel the cold - very slippy underfoot - had planned to do about double that distance but just didn't feel secure with my footing the whole way round - pavement and road were both treacherous - had rained just before I went out so it must have frozen quickly

still good to be out

safe running everyone

Similar yesterday for me Cidlad.  Went out to do 16 miles but cut it to 12.5 because the ice was getting so difficult to run on the higher up I got I simply had to make the sensible decision to turn around and head home.

Freezing rain yesterday, most difficult run i've ever done. Looks better today, frosty but not as icy.  6 mile recovery due this afternoon.

10 miles this morning. 1hr 18. Slow as I spent all day yesterday in London on my feet and got back late!

a beautiful sunny morning, if bloody cold, and a wonderful 10-mile xc race around Farthing Down and Happy Valley nr Coulsdon, South London. Consistently interesting course which gave us metropolitan types a real sense of actually being in the country - at one stage, there was a cow on the course!

I needed to prove to my club that I could run 15k xc in 85mins in order to be allowed to compete in the South of England xc champs. I clocked 15.6k in 78mins, so goal was comfortably achieved! hurrah!

Hello, Jason!  I joined this thread in August 2007 - I think you were known as iRUN then... A great idea, and still going strong.

A very chilly 5 miles yesterday evening, ice-free thankfully.

02/12/2012 at 15:42

6 miles recovery run done, I was wrong, still icy as hell out there.  Stayed upright though.

02/12/2012 at 21:42

Sun 8.00pm - 5 miles approx

first 'double' day I've done - made up for this morning's shortened run - not slippy this evening - legs a bit tired but hopefully getting stronger

good running everyone

4.5M Fartlek on fresh snow. Enjoyable.

03/12/2012 at 07:52
Yesterday was a 6 mile x country race for me. I can only describe it as horrendous, although I'll definitely be back out in January to the next one.
03/12/2012 at 07:58

10 miles last night in a clear but very cold peak district. I had my first race last week and did a very steady 4 miles on tuesday as part of my recovery week so I thought I was ready for a decent run yesterday. Clearly I was wrong as my legs will confirm today. Still, it was good to be out and about with some lovely views and a few cows for company

 As it was raining when I went to bed at 10.00 last night and was still raining when I got up at 6.00am, I assumed that it will be the first ice-free run in a few days.  Wrong!  Some absolutely treacherous spots that hadn't melted but totally took you by surprise.  Very close to going over twice this morning, butterflies in the stomach moments both of them.

6 miles steady....well steady-sih.

03/12/2012 at 10:08

Welcome back Jason!

Had a couple of days off before the weekend then did 10 miles on Sat and 14.5 miles on Sunm to make up for have a lie-in on Friday

Good work all
