I did a easy 8 mile road run this afternoon in the pouring rain at 8.40 pace even though my coach tells me run easy at 9 min pace, I find it harder to run at a really slow pace, I find it heavy going on my legs. Was very tempted to run it quicker in the blessed rain.

My first parkrun today 28:31 


happy as I've only got under 30m I once in training but don't do any speed work.

Staines 10k.  Embarrisingly slow time of 41 16, three minutes slower than last year.  Shin splints painful plus virtually no training since marathon.

Pushed for time so ran from home to Hyde Park, two laps, then back again. Came out as 16.5k at 5.30k. Really hope things will calm down so I can put in some proper training for the North Downs 30k!

@nessie. Have put the Forest Fives in my diary, but can't make first one, sadly!

@SR still a decent time for most people...take a bit of rest, mate!

Congratulations booktrunk on the first parkrun. And nothing embarrassing about that time SR. I hope the injuries are resolved soon.

Lovely day. 9.3miles mainly off-road. 1hr13:30. Knee strapped but was okay. Pretty uneventful.

Well done BT.

SR - wish I could be embarrassed by a 10k time of 41mins. I've never broken 45mins.

LSR today in preparation for another marathon in 2 weeks. 15 miles at about 8min 40pace, which was a bit faster than i'd intended, but I found it really hard. Don't know if its because I'm still recovering from my last (and first) marathon a couple of weeks back, but I felt that I was struggling every step.

I'm also struggling to stay motivated now I've hit my goal and done a marathon.

5 miles fast run today.  Warm and humid, sweated like a garden sprinkler.

19/05/2013 at 22:36

hot day in Bury shock...hold the front page

20/05/2013 at 08:13

Let's be sensible here, it was warm, not hot

Similar conditions today for a 7 mile GA run.

Staines 10k - my first sub 50!!


delighted with 49.18


what next - 47? 46?

20/05/2013 at 12:19

White Peak half marathon  -  pb by all of 4 seconds at 2.11.15   nice and cool this year!

Well done Lilytoo - 4 seconds off sounds like  a well paced run

On hols last week, nr Whitby. 5 days of running up and down a lot. All watch free and easy. Lovely.

First run when back, 8 miles of sunshine over Cotswolds. Will hit some intervals tomorrow but have enjoyed just enjoying the scenery and jogging for a week!

nice easy 4 miles watching the bin men work hard. Enjoyed it today

21/05/2013 at 11:34

5.5miles of Farlek this morning. Smiry (have I remebered that correctly) weather in Chelters this morning!

Congratulations Fergalus and Lilytoo.
Knee strapped and out I went. Great conditions - dry, some sun, not too warm or cold. Meant to go faster but it wasn't happening, so went further instead. 10.75miles on road and path in 1hr24. Took in a track by the dual carriageway. Not the prettiest. Managed to get a bit quicker in the last 3rd. Didn't trust my Garmin today, think it's being treacherous.

evening run today in almost ideal running conditions - bit of freshness in the air, but basically warm and lots of people out. my usual Regents Park plus Primrose Hill circuit for 8k, no idea of the speed as Garmin ran out of juice.

think I might try this run-to-work thing

Just had our running club 5 mile run, done it in 34 mins 51 secs . It was very well attended and organised 

21/05/2013 at 22:26

Nice idea baldie, I try to do this in the summer once the teaching's fizzled out a little, but invariably end up cycling. The logistics of kids at child-minder / stuff to carry etc. inevitably fox me in the end..

Me- pushed at work but still managed 3.6 great miles in Epping Forest with my friend.  God this running's like therapy. have had such a crappy few days at work and with tween boy and even that small distance really picked up my mood

Well done to Fergalus and Lilytoo for your endeavours.

5m recovery today in a stiff breeze and slight chill.  Got chased by a tiny King Charles Spaniel puppy.  Cute yet annoying at the same time.

Sleep running x 2

First: I wake up and Mrs D laughs at me for doing a strange running motion under the duvet in the middle of the night - think it was a 10k race

Second: 8.8 miles steady this morning - literally no recollection of about half a mile at mile 6/7. Not just 100m, a good long stretch of road, I have no idea how I got to the end of it! Anyone else experience this when 'in the zone'?

Chin chin,
