Post details of your last run and what you think of it
baldbloke - what was worrying you about the XC?
Wed 8.00pm - easy 6km woodland trail with Fudge the beagle - we enjoyed crunching through the last remnants of snow - a little slippery in places but nothing too bad - legs needed a recovery run after the increased effort over the last few days
good running everyone
cidlad- re baldbloke- Parliament Hill :-/
The ice has almost gone!
6 miles this morning with middle 4 at HM pace.
2 foxes on the prowl - I think they thought I looked tasty.
Still cold for a mirror image of yesterday's run. 5.8 miles logged.
5 mile recovery run tonight.
10k treadmill again...dying to get out onto the road..........! PLEASE THAW!
Thaw start later today TheSianz
10m steady this morning. Some pavement starting to show through but quite slippy slippy bits.
5mi recovery jog last night to break in my new shoes. So far so good. Brooks Ghost 5's. Pretty comfortable, little toe didn't seem to rub like the last pair. i'm sure one of my feet is about 4 sizes bigger than the other.
8 miles easy along the cold and beautiful River Lea with a friend. Great
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.
