7 mile GA run plus 10 by 100m strides this lunch time.

Sat 4.00pm - 6km woodland trail - threw in 4 x 90 sec efforts for good measure - cheeky little session due to time constraints - every little counts

baldbloke - good training - what was the recovery between the efforts?

good running everyone

Calf a little worse and the Streak is now in some doubt

swittle - don't leave me in suspense.............

Sun 8.00am - 20.5km mixed pace - (97 min)

miserable conditions as the wind and rain increased as the run went on - ran in shorts for the first time in a while  so optimism that the freezing weather has abated - warmed up in the steam room afterwards and let the warmth penetrate to my bones

keep it going everyone

21 miles this morning.

15 miles last night, 9 mins/mile for first 12 then last three at marathon pace of 8 min/mile.

Swittle - nooooooo - how's the calf? did you get out?

Sat - 4 miles Easy

Sun - 13 miles tempo run - training plan was 7:19 min/mile which I managed until the final 2 then had to slow a bit what with horrible headwind and dying of thirst. I've reached that point of needing some water/fuel on longer runs I think. I used to be fine upto 17 miles but that was plodding. These effort runs are taking it out of me. Hate carrying stuff though!

Good work all,

rubbish day and felt rubbish too, after waking up with shivery, achey man flu. nonetheless, headed out and knocked off Oxford Circus-RegentsPark-Primrose Hill-Gospel Oak-Hampstead Heath and back for 16k at 5.30m/km. a little bit slower than normal, but understandable

@cidlad 120sec recoveries. i'm doing the same LT sessions as the spring marathoners in the club, which i figure should more than set me up for my halves.

@swittle fingers crossed for a streaksaver

Swittle - what happened?  Hope you made it out.

DunkyD - I use a running belt for long runs, came with it's own bottles.  I hardly notice it's on now.

Rest day today, much needed after a reasonable session on the ale and whisky Saturday night.  16 miles yesterday with 10 at 7.20 projected/hopeful marathon pace average (lots of hills so have to even it out).  Really enjoyed the run.

Haven't checked in here in ages. Have been back and fully recovered from injury for a few months. Lost weight as well. Anyways, 17 miles today taking in a cycle track that has the solar system in proportional distances marked along it. Made it from the Sun to Neptune and back. Quite cold out at Neptune. Forgotten what the time was, but I know at the half marathon point I was bang on 1hr50. Didn't go mental as I knew I would tire, but time splits stayed pretty consistent all the way. Enjoyed it. Switched off for quite a while. Came to my senses with that strange feeling of having to remember, "oh, I'm running along at the moment". But have got a blister on my big toe.

Still got big bruises on my knee and my arse having hit the floor hard twice in the last few weeks of snow and ice. Nice to run a route as well that doesn't at some point leave me up to my ankles in freezing water and sh*t.

Hope everyone has been running well.

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.
