Post details of your last run and what you think of it
10.85 miles on the treadmill. Had to stop due to heat and humidity.
7.6 km steady today, my training plan calls for 12km today but I haven't done anything all week due to ridiculous conditions in East Anglia so TBH I am super happy just to get some miles in, paths were super slippy but once I got to Mousehold Heath it was a pleasure, got a lot of funny looks and head shakes, looks like it's official I am one of those crazy people lol
Another 10 miles - treadmill. Quite fancied longer but had to walk to and from gym as it was!
decided Hyde Park loops would be best option and in fact the grip in the fresh snow was fine and i really enjoyed the run. 16k at 5.10m/km
there were a fair few runners out, but the most impressive sight was an OAP with a zimmer frame who must have covered about 400 yards in the 80 mins I was out. that's what i call a real effort!!
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!!!
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!
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
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,
Bobejaan....You must be heartbroken..its never easy losing a pet..my 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
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.
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?
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.
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....
