4M Steadily done. Dry, cold no wind.

Swittle, what on earth is a "dodgy porker" round your way.  There are many dodgy porkers round here but they definitely have absolutely nothing to do with running

5.5 mile steady, first run after last Sunday's Central lancs HM. Felt surprisingly ok.

Club run on a pleasantly mild and clear evening. Hyde Park, Green Park, St James Park for 11.5k at 5m/km. Hello to the club member who thinks they have matched my online identity to the real me!

Swittle - please clarify "dodgy porker" and how a woman can have one!

and SR - what is a GA session?

You've given the game away now baldy - they'll know it's def you now.

6 miles this morning with middle 4 at HM pace. Supposed to be 7:19 - my pacings getting better as I did 7:18 / 7:19 / 7:16 / 7:22 with hardly looking at Mr Garmin.

Keep it up all,

D

5 mile recovery run.

BB, 

A GA is a general aeorbic session.  In the P & D marathon program it is any run between 6 and 10 miles inclusive other than recovery or tempo runs.  Just an ordinary run done at a moderate but not slow pace.

'Porker' = hamstring [pork/ham], a term I met in my rugby playing days.  Thus, women as well as men have them.  'Pulling a porker' means straining a hamstring muscle

0645 Chilly but still, no frost, and a mix of streets, trail & beach.  5 miles.

4M Steady done. Dry, cold. Enjoying being back .

6m steady, 1.5 with the fur.  Slight sleet to start with but a very nice run indeed.

Swittle - Rugby Union was my sport growing up, played as a lock forward for my local town.  I never heard that expression once!  I like it though

Happy days, SB - I played at school, then took it up again in my 30s.  That led to me starting to run, after a knee injury drained my confidence for playing contact sports.

7am A damp, cold morning but fine once I got going.  My pal managed 10 mins and I headed off to the prom to complete a useful 5.2 miles.

Keep it going, folks!

very boggy, soggy and foggy 19 miles along the canal trails, great fun.

3.2 mile what-was-supposed-to-be-a-recovery-run

most definitely not a recovery run; took the dog who insisted on speeding along. gave me the chance to use my new foam roller though!

11 mile medium long run tonight.

11/01/2013 at 20:30

Some good training going on.

11/01/2013 at 22:32

6.2 miles. Bit disappointing, I wanted to do 8-9 really but got sabotaged by a) my first Fat Fighters -- I mean Weight Watchers meeting, which boringly went on for over an hour.  And b) the unexpected announcement late in the day yesterday that we're going to be Ofsted-ed on Monday. So need to ensure my paperwork's in order and am really tight on time until then

Not guaranteed to brighten your weekend, Nessie - hope it all goes great!

12/01/2013 at 13:38

18 mile long run today.  Found it hard after last night's 11 mile MLR.  Was scheduled just to do a five mile recovery today with the 18 miler tomorrow but is my anniversary on Sunday so decided to switch.

12/01/2013 at 14:08

13 miles today, scored a pb finally broke 1.40! Felt great!

12/01/2013 at 14:11

4 miles around the large and small blocks, happy with progress as very recently returned to running after 15 months. Crispy and cold - need to find my running gloves

12/01/2013 at 14:58

7am start, and another 15 minutes' running with my chum as she eases back after injury; I then headed for the prom and logged just short of 5 miles altogether.  Bitter east wind heralds snow

12/01/2013 at 16:59

Sat 2.00pm - pilates class followed by 7 steady miles - started with fully stretched (but lactic acid filled) muscles so found it quite tough

good running everyone
