Sunday 2pm, track at a country park, long / slow, 15km, 1:29:44

Was really pleased I finally managed to pace myself with occasional references to the CardioTrainer app on my phone. I managed to keep it so every mile was 9-10 minutes instead of fluctuating anywhere between 8.30 & 11.30 as I have in the past.

Morning from a snowy West of Scotland.

Nice 3.5M run on freshly fallen snow

Okay so i'm a big kid running  in snow

cidlad: Yup easing back into it.

Wondered what on earth i'd stepped out into this morning.  Dark, cold and driving hail in my face with very strong gusts of wind trying to drive me back in the centimetre of fresh snow that had fallen.  I could cope with it if it wasn't for the hail pinging into my eyeballs - not a nice sensation!

Anyway, it eased off and I got in 5 miles, 1.5 with the dog, recovery-ish run.

Hola all,

Intervals this morning - 16 x 200m at 6:30-6:40 min/mile with 1min recoveries

Hit all the splits but my legs were not happy with me after Sunday's effort. Looking forward to tomorrows Easy!

We haven't heard from swittle on here for a couple of days - eeek

It's bloody freezing out there. Three layers today and gloves. Could have done with some ear muffs. Took in a couple of laps of the racecourse. Really cold wind, sleet and snow. The shackles came off a bit out of the headwind. Further than intended at 11.6 miles. Just over 1hr28 (so about 1hr40 HM pace, I think). Not too shabby.

@Birkie- great to see you back, have missed your updates.  Have you been injured?

@swittle-- on the edge of my seat... hope you haven't broken the streak??

@baldbloke-- haha re Patsy Kensit... actually I think she's pretty 'orrid.. but still, I wish!

Me- just a nice easy 4 miles through boggy Epping Forest. Bracing, wet and muddy

05/02/2013 at 20:43

yep, real tension re Swittle's streak... a whole level beyond the drama over Cidlad risking his ankle in that marathon

05/02/2013 at 21:34

A very nice, leisurely 13.1 on Sunday. Nothing since.

05/02/2013 at 21:38

10 miles on the treadmill tonight.

05/02/2013 at 21:42

Erm...hello there.  The Streak is in tact but only just  Mostly a mile or so daily since I pulled up lame last Thursday, favouring the ailing calf and wondering if it would be so bad to ditch my crazy obsession.

Massage, ice, compression bandages and a wide variety of anti-inflamms are keeping me afloat.  I know I should rest & recover but it's a sizeable shedload of days to give up.

Thank you so much for your concern & kind thoughts

Tue - 9.00pm - 6km short easy woodland run with Fudge - time constraints and tired legs dictated that it was adequate for this evening

swittle - respect

Morning all,

swittle - you made 2 years so don't be hard on yourself if you do have a recovery break. Still - there's always hopping.

10 miles easy this morning - legs still abit tired but it felt good to coast along and not put too much in. 5 magpies together too - silver coming my way



06/02/2013 at 21:24

Wed 7.00pm - 10.8km (51 min) - mixed pace but comfortable

felt quite good this evening - good to be out in the cold fresh air

good running everyone

06/02/2013 at 21:37

Swittle- good to hear from you. And +1 to what dunkyd says, no point knackering yourself.  You've achieved a lot

me- 5 mile club run. Fantastic and sociable in the freezing cold.  I seem to be (tentatively) regaining some pace slowly but steadily as I continue to lose weight.  Very happy

06/02/2013 at 21:41

11 miles with 6 at tempo pace tonight.

07/02/2013 at 06:23

3.5M Steadily done. Cold and dry. Forecast is snow later.

07/02/2013 at 09:52

Morning all,

Birky - you've had a lot of snow to deal with compared to me - hope it doesn't slow you down to much!

Nessie - good job on the weight loss - you'll be flying soon.

7 miles this morning with 5 at marathon pace. Half way round the sun was just getting over the hills - feels nice to end my morning runs in a bit of daylight now!

gentle run round Regents Park and Primose Hill for 7.5k at 5.10m/km

last outing before the Wokingham HM. however, I have gone down with a really heavy cold which better clear up before Sunday otherwise could be risky to do it.

sod's law after working towards this race all winter.

@birkmyre good to have your early morning posts back

Had my vivobarefoots on for a shorter run. I was a bit clompy at first but soon settled back into them. On roads and pavements. Not so cold today. A van reversed across the pavement just in front of me. Thank god for reverse lights, but not for the arsehole who swings his van across the pavement without looking. Anyway, 6.5miles in just under 49mins. Sped up for the last mile and half to 7min/mile pace which I'm pretty pleased with.
