Post details of your last run and what you think of it
Today, appx 7pm.
Hilly 5k - my favourite distance. Icy cold and relaxed - 28:00. Just getting back into running and want to break 20 mins for 5k in 2013.
Thurs 8 miles 90 mins
8 miles in the snow, including a stretch of running down the canal toe path without the need for a headtorch.
Not feeling too hot today, but ran 2 miles on the track I first started on last month. Even though I wasn't feeling great it was satisfying that the run was so easy, because I'd had to push myself before.
What an over-optimistic fool I am.
Talk of a mild front pushing in (I briefly enjoyed my now corected typo of "milf front") had me expectantly anticipating a chilly but iceless run this morning. Pah! Not a chance, freezing rain yet again. We've had more freezing rain this year than I can recall in all my previous years combined.
Anyway, 6 miles steady. 1.5 with the ice dancing dog.
Interesting reading that people above have had stomach problems on the 12th. I had stomach problems whilst running on the 12th??? Have not been able to stray too far from the toilet since. But focus on the positives; I have lost 4lbs!

Better than having a 'hard front pushing out' !!!!
Nice running though
Fri 5 miles 60 mins
Another 5 in the snow, as I'm off work today I got the run done this morning before the high winds hit us this evening
A very disappointing mile and a half this morning. I spent the night in Bournemouth and thought it would be nice to run along the seafront. Heavy rain and strong biting wind changed my mind after a few hundred yards and I came back via the park and gave up. One day I will get to run by the sea but it won't be today.
Fri 7.30pm - 14km steady (62 min)
took advantage of a break in the rain and pushed it fairly hard for the middle 10km - hard week at work has left me feeling a bit jaded but glad to get this evening's run in -
keep it going Diaz 209
good running weekend everyone
10k tonight, nice conditions. Around 4 degrees celsius and a little bit of wind and rain. Had to take my gloves off after a mile, actually, which was a pleasant change from my hands going numb from the cold yesterday.
Chickened out yesterday. I don't really mind the rain but the wind is horrible. So I went swimming instead, did 60 lengths. then today was mild so I did 5 miles testing my new minimal shoes, which was lovely, and not so radically different from my usual shoes
The comments above about the wind? I love it! When it is breazy around here I run to Morte Point http://www.guardian.co.uk/travel/2010/aug/25/top-10-uk-walks-morte-point-devon where it absolutely howls; so much that you cannot stand up! Last week it was howling round here so I went out there... lets just say one false move and I would have done my last swim! I went for a 20 km run round there yesterday in 2 and a bit hours expecting to get wet but did not; very spectacular! I like running in 3/4 length leggings, short sleaves and gloves this time of year (this is Devon). I tend to get odd looks from people who are dressed like they are looking for the North Pole. What they cannot see is the two survival blankets, heat pads, first aid kit, GPS and mobile secretly and carefully stashed so as not to bounce around. I am not completely stupid; but maybe some inflatable arm bands (see above)?
SideBurn - your run sounds like a hoot
Sun 8.00am - 10 miles approx - varied pace
later start than normal - blood red sun just rising over the horizon - moderately cold - wasn't expecting any ice/frost but was surprised by how much there was - had to be a bit careful in places
rounded off with a steam and jaccuzi - not a bad start to a Sunday morning
run strong everyone
Sun 16 miles 2hrs 59 mins
My longest run to date, up to Daviot Woods on the outskirts of Inverness, it was a little icy in places but not too cold
Met League XC at Ally Pally - more than a mudbath, this was a genuine quagmire, which was slippy even in 15mm spikes. Plus 3x up the steepest part of the hill to the Palace. confess that i walked up the third time - fun hurtling down though.
clocked 41.56 for 8k coming in 349th. sounds crap, but was actually a slight improvement on the last Met League race.
