Thanks, Nessie & SB: it's so much a component of my life and helps me keep physically and psychologically well.  btw this is edition 2: my first streak was ended by injury at 1315 days....

15 miles today. Awful weather, felt rubbish and drenched!  

Still nice way to end the year This time in 2011 I broke my foot!

Thanks Nessie. Did a gym session today, no running. Have just started week 3 of the Advanced marathoning training program. Goes from 55 a week to 70.

Closed 2012 out with 5 miles on the damp streets of Crosby & Blundellsands.

Who's running tomorrow?

Surrey - that's impressive stuff

Tue 9.00am - brought in 2013 with a gentle 9km - head not in too bad a state  - feel as though it's time to get back to normal routine after an overindulgent festive period 

wishing all MLR'ers a year of successful and ENJOYABLE running - may you all achieve what you strive for

Happy New Year everyone ! no alcohol at all for me well impressed, just a lot of chocolate.

Did 15.07 very slow miles this morning a good start to the new year now just need to lose the xmas pounds..

10K race for me this morning - not as fast as my last one but 38 mins is a good level to start the year with (and the course had more hills than I've done before on a 10K). HNY all.

My legs must know its meant to be a day off because they have gone rigid post race.

10 miles slightly hungover, lovely day for it!

01/01/2013 at 15:37

lovely day for a hangover...or lovely day for a run??

spent the morning marshalling a 10k race in Hyde Park, then did my usual Tuesday run of Regents Park/Primrose Hill for 7k at 5.05m/km

I'm interested to know what goals fellow MLR-ers have set themselves for 2013. Personally, I'm targetting a sub-1.40 HM at Reading.

11 mile mlr run tonight.  Had to make an emergeny stop at burger king (not to eat obviously) as wasn't fully recovered from previous night.  Burger King toilets are disgusting.

My goal is to run London sub 3.

Good festive running all - I've moved so have been offline until EE pull their finger out.

My first goal of the year is to do Brighton in 3:20. Started a 16 week training plan last week and it's going well so far. It's a drop in weekly mileage but far more tempo runs

This morning was 5 miles at 7:38m/m or marathon pace - eek

Keep it up all and Happy New Year,

Wed 11.00am - 10.2km woodland trail

comfortable pace with Fudge the beagle - very wet and muddy on my last day off before work resumes tomorrow

feel as though my running fitness has taken a step backwards over the last couple of weeks - but the process of regaining it over the next few weeks is what motivates me

goal - to remain injury free and get under 40 min for 10k

02/01/2013 at 18:52

13 mile medium long run tonight.

02/01/2013 at 22:52

4ish miles Garmin free tonight.  Pleasant / social with a friend.  

Goal- to lose a stone and hopefully get some speed back in the next two months (speed is relative ).  Then do my customary Easter local HM and try for a PB, which is a still very modest sub 2h 10m.

A late one: 5 miles through Waterloo & on to Crosby Coastal Park, including a stretch of Crosdby Beach, the dark punctuated by the orange floodlights of the Freeport.

03/01/2013 at 09:35

Swittle - that run sounds lush, if a little scary in the dark!

5.5 miles with the middle 3 @ 7:19m/m

It's sunny today - not that it was up on my run!


03/01/2013 at 09:57

DunkyD - I'm often there after nightfall but rarely see anyone else.  The moon helps, of course, but only when it's visible!  Antony Gormley's "Another Place" installation stretches 2 miles up the beach and 1 km out to sea and the Iron Men are my companions and inspiration.   Visit Liverpool website

7am  Reunited with my running buddy of 13 years or so: she'd packed in 2 years ago but decided to start again in 2013, so we chatted our way through the gloomy Waterloo streets for 16 minutes.

03/01/2013 at 15:58

5 mile recovery run today.

03/01/2013 at 21:42

Thur 8.00pm - 10km (approx)

Me and Fudge enjoyed the mild conditions this evening - he is on a leash which is tied around me but it doesn't really disturb my running (occasionally we decide to go either side of a lamp post  but this is happening less often )

dig in everyone
