Post details of your last run and what you think of it
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 !
40 minutes garmin-free through an absolutely beautiful, but treachorously icy Epping Forest this afternoon at sunset
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.
4M Steady as legs a bit tight. been clearing out old files etc at work most of last few days and continue till end of week

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
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.......
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.
Wed 8.00pm - 8km woodland trail by torchlight - easy pace - was meant to be an interval session but energy levels a bit low today - maybe tomorrow
constitution felt fine - once a day man (first thing in the morning )
strong guts everyone
I love it when thread gets scatological
Am pleased to report my gut's fine too
5 ish miles club run tonight. Cold and beautiful. I love running in this weather
Wed 8 miles 90mins
not as cold as last night but still a bit chilly, another easy 8 miles banked, the only thing I hate is the car fumes when its cold, sometimes it feels that the air quality is a little degraded.
Club run round Hyde Pk, St James Pk, Green Park for 11k at 5.00m/km. Pleased to get round after Christmas lunch at work and four glasses of red wine...no scatological issues either!
5M Fartlek in lightly fallen snow. Okay session.
Not sure whether it's appropriate to be talking about Fartleks right now.
I did my first interval session today in 4 months. I've been concentrating on building my mileage ahead of marathon training in the new year so binned them off for a while. Stuck to the treadmill as it was -7 outside and an ice rink. Very hard session, feel great, nice to know that the loo was just a few strides away at all times
SB - I've only just realised what this thread is called too !
Another 4 miles last night. A big hill for the first bit but rewarded with a rare opportunity to run downhill on a closed road. I will never get the chance again as it's too dangerous and it reopens this afternoon.
