3 Easy miles, first run in 2 weeks and got soaked !

Very windy this morning so opted for the mill.  A mile or so it, as usual, I wished I hadn't as the sweat began to stream out of me like I was a one man irrigation system. Was supposed to be 8 miles but got fed up after 7 so stopped.  Back outside tomorrow - whatever the weather.

JT141 - welcome back

birkmyre - back into it steadily

Mon 9.00am - easy 6km muddy trail with Fudge - one episode of him going one way round a tree and me the other resulted in a bit of a tangle - otherwise no problem - he would run close to me without the lead but we have to cross a road and he is not yet quite there on the highway code

dig in everyone

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
hi desibabe,crappy run today 4.3 in 45 min, just bought new shoes new balance 1850 really crappy shoes!

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

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.
