I am knackered. Big run today, half off-road, half on. Put my little camelbak back on with the shoulder straps very tight. Not a problem with it slipping this time. Had my NB minus trail shoes on which I'm liking. Anyways, my longest run to date at 20.5miles in 2hrs47. The splits were consistent and I maintained a pace all through. Really pleased. Except on mile 19 when 2 lads kicked a football at my head. I wasn't feeling at my most forgiving at that point and it might have been bad news for them if they hadn't missed. But very good news for their dentist. Done 40 miles in the last 3 days. Bloody hell.

Bloody hell Redjeep, sounds like a treacherous ride!  Nice work JT... 

Me- got out for my hills yesterday morning, which I'm weirdly starting to quite like now (!??), then lovely slow bike ride with the family 10-12 miles I guess.

Nessie, you're going to storm St Albans...

Me, 23k of the South Downs Way in an alarmingly slow 2.31... even allowing for some big hills, and stops for water, this is very worrying ahead of the North Downs 30k in 6 weeks...actually, the worst bit was the steep downhills on uneven chalk paths...nasty stuff

still, it was a beautiful day and great scenery!

JT - BIG mileage.

Mine is poxy at the minute, still ramping back up after the marathon.  6 miles steady.  Felt good for the first time in week, looking forward to my first semi-long run in a month later in the week.

Good weekends running all.

Sat: Parkrun in 20:21. 4 seconds the wrong way to my goal of cracking 20mins.

Tues: Ladders session of 200m,400m,800m and back down, x2 at 6:20m/m. Tough!

Chin chin,

Bank hoilday run, 14miles LSR ,

x2 laps @ 7miles all round trip. First time round taking it very easy felt great,on the second time round it started too hammer down with rain so I thought ill pick it up a bit, was well happy when I got home to look over my times and I completed 13miles in 1.39.00 and 14miles in 146.15... Legs are aching today though.

great session with running club tonight,7 miles in the park and a bit of trail running too

Nice bank holiday running all. @baldie, dunno about storming St Albans... I think I'll deffo complete it

Half term so hard to fit much in but managed 3.6 miles this evening which lifted my sh*te mood.  Doctors should prescribe this running lark... oh hang on...

Regular Wednesday 10k (© CP 31) just a shade under 50 mins...very pleasent.

Just a nice little 4 and a bit miles in my dinner hour  -  first time out since the half marathon a week ago.  Too much sunshine for my taste and too many walkers spreading out across the path but the swans are sitting on their nest on the canal so there will be some cygnets to look at in the next few weeks.  Also in a sh*te mood because I've just found out that I'm being made redundant but hey ho, more time for midday running

29/05/2013 at 11:30

6 miles GA in mild to chilly conditions and dark skies that produced no rain.  The teases.


29/05/2013 at 12:24

Lilytoo - sorry to hear about the redundancy - what do you do?

Anyone seen Cidlad?

Me - 10.3 miles easy this morning. Felt good with a nice misty rain to cool me for the last 2 miles

I work in services for childhood acquired brain injury DD, it's a very niche area with a very complicated market dynamic (she says, pretentiously) !!  But I'll happily consider anything that'll pay the bills......

29/05/2013 at 14:57

Sounds niche indeed - good luck in finding something new. Give me a shout if oyu need any CV advice.


29/05/2013 at 18:21

Dunky - nice of you to ask about me - thanks

achilles and calf problems have meant no running over the last 6 weeks which has been hard for me to come to terms with - I was advised to have 6-8 weeks off and then to test things slowly

I have still been reading everyone's posts and look forward to adding a few of my own very soon - fingers crossed

keep it going everyone

Eight mile run tonight.

29/05/2013 at 21:03

5.2 miles of trail and beach just after 6am today brought up 850 days of The Streak

29/05/2013 at 21:27

crikey...that's bad news, Cidlad --- and not just for you, but also for Fudge, who must be missing his's to a speedy recovery!

club run in the central London parks tonight for 11k at 4.55m/km...some ambitious talk about a large group of us doing the Amsterdam marathon in October (which would be my first)

29/05/2013 at 22:56

Oo, missed that.   Cidlad, do hope you're on the mend - take it easy peasy lemon squeezy & you'll be back good as new!

29/05/2013 at 23:53

Cidlad- best wishes to you and of course Fudge.  Lily, bad news indeed. I hope you manage to get something else soon. The job market's so tough ATM.

Me- 10k club league match this evening cross-country. Very hilly. Fun and SLOW.
