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.

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

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

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!

Five mile recovery run tonight.

Morning all,

5 miles in the dark and forgot I was going off road and didn't take lamp - middle mile of a wobbly hill section completed safely.

Toying with entering Abingdon - anyone doing it?

Very gentle 5m recovery run this morning.  Got a little wet but nothing serious

Nice running MLRers

Me- 8.5 mile along the River Lea this morning. Very nice and some fairly tasty splits for me.  This half stone I've lost in 3 weeks on Weight Watchers may be speeding me up a little?  Another half to go...

was a quick five miler on tuesday in gale force winds- should have gone out today but an ear infection left me unbalanced and queasy.. so i've taken to reading everyone elses excursions and wishing they were mine

hope everyone has a good weekend

01/02/2013 at 20:12

01/02/2013 at 22:08

well done Nessie 73

Fri 9.00pm - 11.1km (47 min) - tempo run

felt like putting a bit of effort in this evening - ran it fairly hard - bit more spring in the legs today

run strong everyone

Thanks cid

I tried the new local parkrun this morning, which is precisely 0.6 miles from home.  It was fun, friendly and very very boggy, wet and muddy. Have no idea of time but I imagine ploddingly slow from the number of times I slipped / got my shoe stuck in the bogs.

LT interval session in Battersea Park last night. Warm up then 4x7mins at 4.25m/km then Cool down. Need to make tomorrow's long run a very long one to prepare for Wokingham.

@nessie73 good work - you'll be looking like Patsy Kensit in no time!
