Sun 7.00am - 16.3km (79 min)

frost laden pavements but surprisingly less slippy than anticipated - easy paced run with friend - rounded off with a warming session in the steam room - came back with a glow in my cheeks

keep it going everyone

Met League cross country at Perivale yesterday. Course was pretty much continuous bog with no opportunity to really get going and no hope of getting any power on the slopes. Course was supposedly 8k but I made it 9.05. Anyway, got round in 45.40 and failed -- again - to make the top 300.

curious sport is running - can't understand how you can go from PB form to a dismal performance in a week!

the terrain makes all the difference, wouldn't judge your form on a race like that

8 miles, begun steady and finished the last two miles half a minute faster than goal hm pace.

10 miles felt great again, absolutely gorgeous out - cold but sunny and crisp! Good stuff!

6 miles at 8am this morning. Gentle pace in the gorgeous winter sunshine 

The cold wind made my nose stream lol but all good otherwise!!

9k at 5.33 per km done today.

Really enjoyed the run and felt strong. Had to slow myself down at times because it was meant to be a LSR.

32k for the week including 1 interval session.

7.30am start, keeping a sharp eye out for lurking ice patches and frost hidden by the pre-dawn gloom.  A tour of Crosby village and Rimrose Valley before passing what's left of the docks at Seaforth and finishing with a mile up the beach & thence to Vic Park & home.  Very cold but fresh too.  10.5 miles.

4M Steady in rain.

Swittle - bad luck with the injury mate but hey, at least it lead you to running   I much prefer running to Rugby, you tire of some 18 stone animal trying to squeeze your nuts out of the shell eventually....

Absolutely beautiful 6m steady in a snowy scene this morning.  Cold, crisp and joyous.  The snow is falling again now and getting heavy.  I love winter for this.

7 miles in the snow.

Morning all,

12 miles yesterday at 7:34 min/m, not far off the 7:38 MP target.
Lovely morning for running.. Unlike today - rest day thank god
14/01/2013 at 11:20

how do.

14miles yesterday in 2:21 (just under 10min/mile). which was between 10-20% of target marathon pace, so feeling pretty confident about training at the moment.

felt comfortable throughout, managed to run pretty even splits for a change.

Mon midday - 8km woodland trail (bog) with Fudge - mud splattered but content

dig in everyone

Regents Park and Primrose Park in a mix of sleet and rain. 7.5k at 4.55m/km. enjoyed it once I got going!

14/01/2013 at 15:16

i have a feeling this week is going to test the resolve of a lot of runners, including myself

14/01/2013 at 20:37

bit late for me. Run ragged at work with these lovely Ofsted chaps :-/

4.6 miles yesterday in fantastic / perfect running conditions. Very cold and sunny.  Am jealous of those of you who got out in the snow today.  Hopefully I'll squeeze half an hour in tomorrow... see how I go

14/01/2013 at 22:21

SB, I heartily agree - and I was never really much good.  Just wish I'd found running earlier...

Good to see the Mara training building well ^  Not a single flake of snow on Merseyside so far but a whole skyful of rain early this morning for my 5 miles around Crosby & Blundellsands.

4m Steady on a cold and frosty morning. Brrr. Okay run. Much better than in wind and rain.

Gentle 4 miles recovery this morn, ice ice baby.
