Nice one Baldbloke.  A bunch from my club were down at Claybury as well. Not me, I am LOADS too slow.  I hear it's  a tough one.

Me- around 4 miles today. Loved it, felt strong, felt like I could have run for hours but was short on time.  Isn't it strange how differently you can feel... Friday's run was sooo hard, and around the same pace but a constant fight. Today was great, easy etc.

Sums my run up perfectly today.

Did a 6 miles steady and happy to report, conditions in Bury were perfect   Frosty but pavements dry and ice free.  I felt so strong today, legs without any aches or pains and feet felt comfortable and planted.

A lot of it's down to recovery runs, i'm sure of it.  I ran my recovery yesterday at a very slow pace and I think I reaped the benefits today.

Tue 8.00pm - 8km woodland trail

deep fog and frosty surface (mostly non slip on the trail) - headtorch allowed me to see enough but it was like running through a mist of icy droplets - very strange

my dog was attatched and he seemed to cope well and enjoy it

dig in everyone

Tues 5.2 miles 53 mins

Jog Scotland run tonight with five brave souls who took to the streets of Inverness and battled through the icy conditions, a good run is excellent company

7.5 miler in Huddersfield. Living on  a hill has its ups and downs ! Ran down to the canal. Just over an hour. Lovely sun shine. A bit slippery under foot but not too bad. Freezing conditions to begin with. Sweating starts after a short while

We are dedicated athletes ... as well as that I've only got another 23 miles to reach year end target of 777 - C'mon me !

Hill session with club tonight

40 minutes garmin-free through an absolutely beautiful, but treachorously icy Epping Forest this afternoon at sunset

17 miles in the freezing cold yet with a lovely clear sky. Mile 4 saw the threat of the runners trots which is a first, and hopefully, the last time for me. They lasted 3 miles then eased up without any damage. Mile 9 saw the return of the growling tummy that lasted the remaining 8 miles. I have no idea how I made it home but thankfully I did without incident. Sorry, for some reason I felt the need to share that information with the class

My most recent run was on Thursday, ran 11k, which was a pb for me.  I had some unfamiliar muscle pain after it, but it was no big deal.  Haven't been able to go out since because of the ice, though. 

Out in country park soon.  It's a cool challenge for me, because I went out there with some guys from a gym during the summer and ended up falling behind, getting lost and then having to take a seat due to exahaustion.

Odd that you mentioned this, the exact same thing happened to me this morning for the first time too.  Must be something in the air (there was nearly something in my running tights).

Not a good run really.  Just 3.5 miles, was supposed to be 6.  1.5 with the dog on the most icy ground so far.  MP3 player ran out of charge and then the cramps started a mile away from home and came in waves with a decreasing respite between them the nearer I got to home.  I was genuinely unsure if i'd make it back without a terrible incident.  I did...just.

So you were very nearly literally Strangely Brown then.......

12/12/2012 at 09:16

Lol, quite!

Happy to have completed a tough 3k around the country park which made quick work of me before, and in much worse conditions this time.

Took a 5k detour home after that, scared an old man and his dog on the way, was very funny because the dog comically recoiled when we almost collided on a corner, and I heard the old man mutter, "F*cking hell..." as I passed.
