Hello, hello!  I'm still here and still streaking, tho' I've found it hard to find time to post during a hectic bout of teacher's stuff

Mostly five-milers last week around the coastal park & my beloved beach.  A 1.1 mile streaksaver last night - and chicken dopiaza as a reward for the week!

Take care & run strong

Six mile steady run this morning.

4m recovery run.  Boring but necessary following last week's endeavors

Bristol 10K this morning. Not done much recently mostly down to a new job but also down to laziness. The 10K hurt a bit but I still clocked a respectable time. Perhaps with a little effort I might break the magic 50 minute barrier next time.

First run in a fortnight, resting this stubborn ever wandering ankle/heel pain. 3.5 miles. Meant to do it at a jog but sped up a bit. Seems okay. Stupid little injury that wont go away, just moves from one part of my foot to another.

First marathon done and dusted.

3 hrs 54 mins. Probably started a bit too fast and paid for it from mile 18 onwards when I really had to force myself to keep running.

However no serious problems, no pain now, no chafing and nothing fell off.

11 miles along the (finally snow free) trail  -  too hot for my taste and a burned face today to show for my pains (does sweat make you burn easier?) but a decent time for me 

Well done on your marathon Redjeep!  Great time.  If you can manage to force yourself to keep running for 8.1 miles then I reckon you've got it cracked!

Nice one Redjeep and a great time

Me- like Birkie, hills.  9 reps. Pretty hard but that's the point

06/05/2013 at 10:50

Oops, sorry  -  'manage to force yourself to keep running for 8.2 miles'..... (you can tell I only do halfs.....)

Redjeep - Congrats man, great feeling to finish one eh?

Another 4 mile recovery run, in the sun.

Congrats Redjeep. A really great achievement.
A more sedate distance for me, but a little further than yesterday. 4.85miles in 37:45. Heel healing (again), so long as I don't do anything stupid this time. Wont go above 6 miles until I'm sure it's fine. Warm for a change which was a shock to the system. Saw someone gardening with the whole of their bum hanging out of their trousers.

Nice one, Redjeep...decent time and that lack of chafing is certainly a bonus!

Didn't get any running in while in Barcelona last week and incredibly busy at work until Saturday, but managed to nip out from the office this evening for an amble round Regent's Park and Primose Hill for 11k at 5.30m/km.

Barcelona is lovely, but London on a warm bank holiday evening is pretty great too!

One of my favourite runs this morning.....6:30am round some beautiful parkland near my parents place. Only about 3.5 miles but just so nice in the quiet seeing the mist coming up from the lakes.

07/05/2013 at 09:23

Well done Redjeep - great work!

Sat - Parkrun PB of 20:17. Not able to do another for a few weeks but then that 20 minute barrier is mine!

Sun - 7miles with Brother and Father-in-Law. Taking in two river routes and getting charged by sheep. What Sunday running is all about.

Mon: Hard pyrimid workout: 200m,400m,800m,400m,200m x 2 @ 6:18 with 30sec recoveries. Knackering!

Chin chin,

42.195km 4:56:13 hot long and happy

26.2 miles, MK Marathon. 

07/05/2013 at 20:37

Nice one Marc S. How was it?

Dunky- some great running

Me- 4.5 miles in the balmy forest.  Great as ever

07/05/2013 at 21:34

Thanks everyone.

Well done book trunk and Marc S.


First recovery run tonight. Was meant to be 10miles at 10min pace, but I bailed out after 8 miles. Feeling a bit better than I was before the run. Must be something in these recovery runs !

08/05/2013 at 08:39

Booktrunk and Marc - Congrats to you both.  How did you get on?

Just a little 5k GA run today.  I've done the whole of 16 miles since my marathon a week and a half ago and that was my last run before going away for a week tomorrow.  I am, of course, taking my running shoes though

08/05/2013 at 19:28
Knackered by the end of my run today. Haven't felt like that for a while. A combination of time out injured and feeling a bit out of sorts. Anyway, 5.6miles in 43mins. An extra mile today and not slow, but I felt pretty rough. However, no heel pain. Hooray.
