3 loops of battersea park at LT pace, which is 3x2.75k at 4.30m/km (with 90s secs recoveries). solid session.

@cidlad. the Hampstead Heath xc is a horror because it's twice the length of a normal xc race, it's a very high standard as it's the SE championship, and as Nessie says, Parliament Hill isn't much fun. nothing Fudge couldn't handle though!

btw, @nessie sounds like your training is picking up nicely!

good session baldbloke

Fri 8.30pm - fresh snow in abundance - 7km in blizzard with hard snow/sleet blowing in from the east on an icy wind - woodland trail - ran with Fudge, who has no endurance problems

good running weekend

Sat 7.30am - 7km woodland trail with Fudge

easy pace but still hard going - overnight rain beginning to melt the snow - The golden sun was rising over the tops of the trees and there was a mellow mist visible over the fields as the warm air gets to work on thawing the whiteness that covers everything around

musings over - enjoyable running everyone

off to buy a pair of decent trail shoes today

What are you thinking on the shoe front, cidlad?  I'm a fan of Mizuno Wave Harrier: virrtually unbreakable

A trio of 5.8 milers, half of each with my long-time running buddy who's well into her comeback now.  Probably had enough of the c-c-cold for now....

15 mile medium long run this morning.

@swittle - thanks for the tip - I didn't see any mizuno at the shop yesterday - but I am going to have another mooch around next weekend

Sun 7.30am - 90 min easy paced running on a dry but windy morning - legs a bit heavy but an enjoyable start to the day - as always on Sunday - a sauna and steam to wash away the debris

decent running everyone

Another 15 mile medium long run today.

Beatiful day finally ...decent .6.23 under the sun.

12k run from home, along the Monsal Trail, including the tunnels, to Bakewell. Thaw was on but most of the trail involved cold, slush running!

16.5 miles around Callington SE Cornwall. Very hilly, very painful. 2.5 hours. Now home watching football and feeling mighty pleased with myself!

lovely sunny lunchtime run in central London. Oxford Circus-Regent's Park-Primrose Hill-Gospel Oak-Parliament Hill-Hampstead Heath and back. worked out at 17k at 5.15m/km.

first time I've heard birds chirping for a while and easy to see was a life-affirming day out there!

27/01/2013 at 17:11

13 miles yesterday - a PB. 12 miles slow today in lovely sun  

27/01/2013 at 17:31

Oh I LOVE the Monsal Trail! I've bike ridden the trail a few times on holidays, and done the odd run too

After all these years of running, it's still possible to experience totally new conditions.

Today was mild, sunny, breezy and I was able to wear shorts and feel warm.  What made it peculiar were the areas where I had to run through ankle deep slush, whcih frankly, was just horrible.  I had to wring my socks out after 3 miles! Then as I went up in elevation, the fields were still snowy yet it didn't feel cold enough for snow to be around.  A slow thaw I guess.

Anyway, 16 miles LSR was still completed.

Through the sleepy streets of Blundellsands to the Coastguard Station, and along the length of the beach, guided by shimmering moonbeams, with only a hundred Iron Men for company.  Quiet suburban backwaters led me home after 10.5 dark miles.

28/01/2013 at 09:29

Sat - 4 miles easy

Sun - 15 miles LSR. Ice gone. Shorts on. Sun even made an appearance. Didn't feel tired until mile 13 so getting a bit more in my legs now.

I did that thing of meeting up with a race route by accident - I was going the wrong way and confused a few marshals!

Good running all,

Sunday - 10 miles easy.

Reading other people's timings, I find myself very slow at 12mm.

Oh, newcomer here. Hello!

Hey desibabe,

Running is running - no time snobs here!

5m recovery and the ice persists.  Sharp and unexpected frost overnight froze the remaining areas of slush as well as the melting snow and created our old friend  "black ice".  Very trecharous underfoot and made me grumble a lot of being fed up with winter.
