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.

After a work enforced two day break, back on it this morning with 8 miles inc 10x100 strides.  Felt rested and good.  Perfect winter running weather, cold and dry and the dawn was breaking by 7.15 which made me very happy

Swittle - Kudos indeed!  Don't take too many risks though mate....

Just under 10 miles this morning down the River Lea. Great / easy.

Cheers, people   Just putting in the 1.1 mile Streaksavers atm.  It's tight muscles below the calf that's the issue but it's easier: no longer descending stairs with my body at 90 degrees to the wall

20 miles, steady 9m/m. Enjoyable but no-one really says hello in Newcastle. Sad.
Have a good weekend all

Havem't posted any of my runs this week! Done plenty of mileage it's been great

10 miles this morning, broke 1 hour 10 for the first time

Well done Sianz. I know, I've been knocking down a few of my times recently and it feels pretty good doesn't it.

Off road today. Very muddy. Ran in my vivobarefoot trail shoes for the first time (had them ages but knackered my shin bone before I got a real chance to use them). Had to strap them on tight, The lugs are good at keeping you pushing forward. And they shed big clogs of mud now and then in a strangely pleasing way. Not so much fun on the pavements. Anyway, clear, bright and not too cold. 11.62 miles in 1hr32. For the muddy conditions I'm happy I just nicked under the 8min/mile average.

I've not been able to run in over 16weeks due to an ankle injury when i fell of a kerb just before my first marathon.

I've tried on the treadmill every week for the last couple of months but could never get above walking pace until this week. I got on hoping to be able to get up to running pace and maybe do a km but managed 5km only stopping because I felt I shouldn't be pushing it any further.

My calf didn't enjoy 2.2 miles around Waterloo this evening: hot bath, ice & pills administered

10/02/2013 at 12:18

Take it easy Swittle but well done for keeping on keeping on

12 mile medium/slow one this morning.  Incessant rain, damned cold and not all that enjoyable.  Onwards and upwards though.
