Post details of your last run and what you think of it
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....
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.
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
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.
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.
8.4 easy miles this morning. Fresh snow for the last 2 made me slow down though!
Bored of it now. Come on the sun!
Thought it may be a tad less chilly this a.m. at 6.30 but I was wrong! The icy wind had dropped and most of the ice & snow was gone too. 5.8 miles.
For anyone not aware, the good news for us runners is that the thaw will start on Saturday and the higher temps will be running into next week.
The bad news is, wet and windy weather will be the order of the day. Alas, this is winter afterall.
the best news is that the 15k cross country on Hampstead Heath this Saturday has been cancelled...it was a race i'd been dreading for months
