Post details of your last run and what you think of it
3m A bit faster than the last 2 days. Cold, dry.
Carter: Well done .
swittle - "dodgy porker", best injury quote of the week!
6 miles easy for me this morning. Bit colder than has been for the last week but nice and fresh. Def getting a bit lighter in the mornings - got back at 7:30 and could sense it trying to brighten!
14 mile medium long run today.
I did my first track session in years last night. 1 mile warm-up then 5 x 800m race pace with 200m recovery between each set. My legs feel it today. Deffo a rest day for me.
A run of 2 x 23 minutes early doors, with ice on windscreens and the thinnest of crescent moons. My pal's porker is no better, so just 4 minutes before she had to walk home. 5.2 miles in all.
2.2 miles around the block not sure what time felt easier than Sunday and Friday, will go a bit further 2morrow
therunningmuppet - keep it going
Wed 7.00pm - 10.6km mixed pace (47 min) - felt quite good this evening - getting back to pre-christmas fitness slowly but surely
dig in everyone
Swittle, a porker means something a bit different to we Londoners
Me- 5.5 miles club run, at the fastest pace I've managed in a few months. Now, down to Weight Watchers on Friday to try to start shedding this extra stone, and hopefully I can start to regain some speed
May have to Google that, Nessie!
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,
5 mile recovery run.
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!
