Another excellently snowy run today in about 5-6 inches of beautiful fresh snow with it coming down thick n fast throughout. About 4 miles very slowly.  Got snowballed in the face as I got home, by my 12 year old son :-/  Got him back down the neck tho

Snowy, Hilly 15 miles today, very hard work, natures own version of resistance training!!!

17 miler, quite slow (20 mins slower than last weeks long run) due to, well obvious reasons. Pleased in general - bar a small tweaky right knee mara training is going well.
Bed now

The snow has finally hit Manchester so I was able to enjoy a 3.5m recovery run in lovely, crisp and grippy snow.  Much safer than running on ice.

Sat - 6 miles over the trails of Leckhampton Hill. great fun garmin free and took my phone to grab a few snaps 

Sun - was due for a 12 mile easy to tempo run but was just too icy. Managed to get to my sister's gaff for a go on her treadmill but was boored stupid after 9 miles. You guys that can do miles on a treadmill - that's will will power right there!

Stay safe

Mon 10.00am - 1 hour approx (garmin free)

Fresh snow overnight and a heavy fall this morning meant fun run with the dog - out into the woods and fields for some serious snow/mud slipping and sliding  (need to find some good off road shoes)

Sometimes the distance and time don't really mean a thing and its just a case of get out there and enjoy - At the moment, the dog is comatose and curled in front of the radiator

fun running everybody

ran in the snow round clumber park sunday, was a proper workout on the legs...very enjoyable its quite slushy in parts where i live now, so made the decision of cross training on the excersise bike this week. safe running everyone.

Hi folks, just a short message for those who remember my posts. I had to have my faithfull old Staffie and running partner Cede put to sleep today after a relativley short illness after she was diagnosed with Hepatitis in December. She took a turn for the worse last night and was in some distress, our last walk was at Paull on the Humber estuary today.

Bobejaan - sorry to hear that - best wishes

Hola all,

Bobejaan - sad news, sorry to hear that

On a lighter note, this morning's run introduced a new reality TV in the waiting....

Intervals On Ice

Attempted 12 x quarter miles at 6:45min/mile with 1 min recoveries

Missed a third of the splits due to treading carefully when I hit the ice - no falls though so thats a bonus. Nice easy run tomorrow thank god,


22/01/2013 at 09:28

Bobejaan....You must be heartbroken..its never easy losing a thoughts go out to you.

Respect to the mad people out running in this weather; the novelty of running in the snow is wearing off for me. Have had some great runs along the coast path; but is it worth risking serious injury just to ease the frustration of not running? I am going to run anyway! I am just not sure it is a good idea

22/01/2013 at 09:37

Bobajaan - Heart wrenching stuff, so sorry to hear that.

My run today I found hard.  8 miles with 11x100m strides.  Either compacted snow/ice or 2-3 inches of snow all the way and it took it's toll on my legs.



22/01/2013 at 15:47

that's tragic news, Bobajaan. sounds like she had a great life though...

headed out in the snow of Regents Park and Primrose Hill for 7.5k at 5.30m/km...paths were pretty treacherous so went through the pure snow off-path and it felt like cross country...but worth getting out!

wonder how the chap on the streak is getting on?

22/01/2013 at 16:48

Thanks for your kind words and thoughts everyone,

Just feel a bit lost now. Go careful out there ! Am on late shift so the school gym looks a safe bet later.



22/01/2013 at 21:03

Bobejaan - I'd been missing posts referring to your ever faithful running partner - and I am very sorry you've had to say goodbye

6 miles around Crosby at 0630, practically ice free.  The Streak is a demanding master/mistress....

22/01/2013 at 21:44

Sorry to hear about your dog Bodejaan.


3.85 miles on the mill tonight.  Milage crashed due to weather.  Gym temperature was 19 degrees which restricts running somewhat.

22/01/2013 at 21:47

Tue 8.30pm - 2km easy / (8 x 500m with 1 min rest) / 2km easy

last of the slushy snow in the park made for a hard session - however as it was on a grass base it was relatively non slip

1st bit of interval work for a while -  not my favourite type of training - but it feels good afterwards

dig in everyone

22/01/2013 at 22:21

Bobejaan- so sorry to hear about your loss. I'd missed your posts.. it is a wrench to lose a beloved pet.. be kind to yourself x

Did 30 mins of intervals on the dreadie after work, which was better than a kick up the backside. Too icy on the pavements around work and too dangerous to go on the roads cos of school run parents in cars.

23/01/2013 at 08:47

5m recovery on what is now very compacted snow/ice.  Minor thaw took place yesterday and then re-froze with a certain menacing gusto.  All made for a very tricky run, even at recovery pace.
