Cheers Nessie, Surrey Runner and Swittle. She was diagnosed with Hepatitis in December, she pulled through but suffered liver damage and was put on a special diet, she was doing ok although looked quite frail, then took a turn for the worst and stopped eating. Not sure if I will get another, will see when I get back from visiting family in Cape Town. I do miss her and getting out in all weathers when I would otherwise stay indoors.

Go carefull in this weather everyone, all clear in Hedon and Hull now.

5k recovery. It's damn windy out.

desibabe, I echo what DunkyD said ^  If we're part of the 5% who run, what are the other 95% doing?

Just a 9-hour gap between last night's & this morning's run  and it did nothing to soothe a grumbling calf and sore patch on my left foot.  Still, 5.8 miles and half of that with my run buddy faster than when we started.

Where's the streak at now swittle?

6 miles this morning with 3 x 2k @ 7:01 min/mile - last one was tough! Could feel last nights ice cream slowing me down!

10 miles with 5 at LT pace.

Tue 10.00pm - 6 miles approx - easy pace - accompanied by Fudge

Heavy day at work (7.30am - 9pm) meant that I had to summon up some motivation to get out this evening - fairly mundane suburban run

dig in everyone

Hi, DunkyD.  When I've run tomorrow morning, it'll be 731 days, or 1 year + 1 leap year.

Hope I've not jinxed it!   Will report back.

Day 730 was a mirror image of Day 729: 5.8 miles, cool but calm.

Swittle - stunning effort!

Marc.S - I feel your pain mate, literally.  I've had PF for 5 months now and am just running through it.  It waxes and wanes, some days very painful, other days noticeable but not too bothersome.  I've recently read about splints so may try one.  Stopping just isn't an option, i've two races coming up in the next three months and I just don't want to slacken the training off.

9 miles LT run (5m at LT) today.  Felt really, really hard.  Legs felt weird today, quite tingly and uncomfortable at the tops.  Been doing up the master bedroom so bending down into odd posisiotns doing skirts and knocking walls out etc, just thnk my body doesn't like the combo of that and running.  On the plus side, dry, mild and a little breezy.  Such a joy to run ice free baby

7 miles with 10 1-minute speed runs with a minute interval inbetween (as suggested elsewhere on this board). Very pleased with my 10.35mm, a big improvement from the recent 12mm.

Did hard hill training best time ever for me , 4.3 miles in 42 min.It was great!!

Thanks, DunkyD & Strangely Brown   5.8 miles at 0630 around Crosby Village took me to the two-year Streaking mark of 731 days.  Many people, online & at work & leisure, ask about my ludicrous obsession - I really appreciate their interest - but I'd never recommend Streaking...

Nice one Swittle, absolutely fantastic achievement... I well fancy following your lead at some point when the kids are a bit older.  Haruki Murakami (sp??) also runs every day, for an hour I believe, as part of his daily constitution... You're an inspiration..

Me- busy but managed 30 minutes intervals yesterday and then the same today. Quality over quantity I guess although I'm really hankering after a lovely slow plod now

30/01/2013 at 22:17

14 mile medium long run tonight.

30/01/2013 at 22:34

swittle - keep that streak alive.

Strangely Brown - easy does it

Wed 9.00pm - 14km (2km easy - hard 10km - 2km easy) - 62 min

not as free flowing as I had hoped - legs a bit heavy - but still an enjoyable yomp - Fudge had a rest this evening  

happy running everyone

So kind to comment about my Streak, Nessie73 and cidlad

This thread remains a joy to follow!

Club run last night. Hyde Park, Green Park, St James Park for 11.5k at a pretty comfortable 4.50m/km.

Feeling pretty good ahead of Wokingham HM, although I haven't really done enough long runs.

Nice streak Swittle - although you've got several decades to go to catch up with Ron Hill !

What a difference a day makes, 24 little hours.  Work forced me to juggle my schedule around a little so today called for a recovery run but what I got instead was a 10 mile general aerobic session.  Legs felt anything but tired after the heavy session yesterday and I bounced along merrily in the mild and breezy north west.  Aches a distant memory.

Dawn is showing it's hand at 7.30ish now, the change is afoot and I couldn't be happier about it!

31/01/2013 at 21:47

Five mile recovery run tonight.
