Loving the sun in general but boy it's a struggle running in this heat after the longest every winter.. TERRIBLE 4 mile run today where I actually had to give up near the end... God knows how I'm going to do this HM on Sunday :-/

5.1 mile slow and steady run in out and around Holyrood Park and back.  Cracking night for it.

good to have Cidlad and Fudge out running again

nessie: time to taper big up until the big day!

Me: ran from work to the track with rucksack, then 7x500m at 4m/km (100metre walk recoveries), followed by 4x200m at 3.45 (200m walk recoveries). Was planning to run home, but virtually collapsed at the end

SB. It was the Cork City Marathon, yesterday was the June BH over here in Ireland.

Thanks TS and DD.

3 mile tempo session.  Hideous. I hate speed and I hate heat.  Feel brilliant today though.....

@baldbloke - hows the commute going? Sounds fun!

11.4 miles this morning run easy (although the last 2 felt tough).

Sunshine woke me at 5:30am so nice to be able to fit a lengthly run in before work.

Tired now though,

Another quicker paced one covering 6.85miles half off-road and half on. No faster than last time though at 49mins30. 10k time was just a shade under 45mins (again). And I trod in some dog poo.

Wed 8.00pm - 5.4 km - easy pace

waited for the cool of the evening to fit in a gentle run in the park - good to be back in the mix

gave Fudge the night off - he had a good run out this morning

Nessie - positive thinking and it will go just fine

good running everyone

Ah, of course.  Well done for completing two in such a short space of time

7 mile GA run today.  Cool and cloudy but the promise of sun to come.

On and on!

Morning all,

5.5miles recovery for me this morning. Nice bit of drizzle to cool me before the sunshine when walking into work - woop woop

Out at 6 today for 5.7 miles: round to the Coastguard Station, down the beach - inevitably - and over the cycle track home.  Muscle ache about the same.

06/06/2013 at 22:40

Thur 9.00pm - 7.5km woodland trail with Fudge

easy pace with Fudge leading the way - warm and pleasant evening for running - working my way back into the routine slowly but surely

Redjeep - well done on the marathon - two in a month is some going

good running everyone

7 miles inc 5 x 400 intervals.  Bright sun, pretty warm, very sweaty.  The contrast between now and what only seems a few weeks ago in the never ending winter, is quite something.

A good weekend all

unlikely to have internet this weekend, so popping on to wish Nessie the very best of luck at St Albans on've done the training so now it's time to nail it (but dont go off too fast especially if its warm)!!

07/06/2013 at 11:32

14 miles of sunny but not-to-hot running.  Lovely

07/06/2013 at 11:34

Rest day for me - but good luck to Nessie too!


07/06/2013 at 16:04

Aw thanks all  Baldie- not like me to go too fast

following baldie's advice, I have done virtually nothing this week except some very gentle cycling and walking.  Tuesday's run was so horrible it led to my (now customary) pre-race crisis of confidence.  I just did a very easy 4 miles this morning to check my legs still have it in them.  ( I think they have).  Now I just need to try to be positive for Sunday

Out in the midday sun. Mostly offroad. Quite a few obstacles one way or another incl. gates, stiles, bridges filled with people, paths blocked by thistles and nettles (my legs were stung enough at one point so I turned back the way I came), and mysterious paths that didn't go anywhere. And a newly fledged crow on the ground, the parent of which went ape shit and mobbed me when I ran past. So given the stop/start nature of the run a decent 1hr50 for 14miles.

Good luck Nessie for the weekend. Enjoy yourself.

in case anyone interested I've just started a running blog......have a look!

Sat 9.00am - parkrun 5km

lovely warm morning for a trot in Princes park - on the whole these parkruns are a good thing - surprised there is an element of opposition to them as they are well organised, free and friendly - pleasant way to spend a sunny saturday morning

good running weekend everyone
