Post details of your last run and what you think of it
Sat 8.00am - 14km mixed pace run
felt like I was running on empty - still patches of ice to avoid - fairly easy running week comes to an end
good weekend everyone
15 miles this morning, beautiful out!
16.5 miles LSR. Very icy still but the ice was solid as a rock and almost sticky on the surface. Very odd but not actually too difficult to run on. I'm still looking forward to the breakdown of all this cold weather and some nice runs without ice.
South of England Masters XC Champs at Claybury. More than I could handle standards-wise - there are some seriously fast over 40s out there. Extremely boggy 10k course, churned up all the previous races. lots of fallers. gps failed, but reckon I got round in about 49mins and came 2nd or 3rd last.
a run that took a lot of physical and mental stamina, and one of those outings that can only make me stronger...oh yeah, and it was fun!
Sun 7.00am - 17km hilly varied pace run (73 min) - Work night out last night - bed at 2.00am - got up this morning and looked out of the window............lovely .
Are we nuts?
happy running everyone

Nah, just dedicated
Well, finally, the ice vanished today and I was able to run a totally normal stride pattern for the first time in a fortnight.
It was only a 50 minute, 6 mile recovery run but what a run of two halves. The first half the frost and ice had been replaced by lashing cold rain and really powerful gusts of wind that knocked you sideways and splattered your face with wet if you were running into it. It had me wondering about that most ancient of human imponderables "do we really know how good we've got it". I was longing for the ice instead. By the turnaround, the front had passed and the last 3 miles were run in benign, windless and rain-free conditions - perfect winter running weather.
Yin/yan to say the least.
turns out that at the boggy SEAA Masters 10k xc yesterday, I actually ran 47.39. considering most people were 2 or 3 minds down on their road PBs, this is in fact one of my best runs ever. still came second to the last though!! hoping to get in a recovery run later...
9.55 miles on the treadmill. Average of 6.59 pace on 1 percent. Still a bit of a twinge in the ankle.
Sun 11 miles 2hrs
An out and back along the canal toepath to Dochgarroch, a breezy but mild late morning run, what a way to start your week
13 miles around Aberystwyth, taking in some killer hills.
10k nice and easy on a treadmil!
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.
Mon 11.00am - 40 mins easy running (8.5km)
glorious morning - woodland trail and park - gets the day off on the right track
run strong everyone
Mon 7 miles 80 mins
Two mile run to the gym followed by a five miler, it's getting a little chilly up north brrr.
Morning from a very frosty West of Scotland.
Good training going on
5M Fartlek yesterday and 5M Steadily today done and now thawing out.
4 miles tonight. still very cold
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 !
