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 why...it was a life-affirming day out there!

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

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.

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.

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.

29/01/2013 at 23:52

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.
