Sun 8.00am - 19.3km (1.29)

mainly country lanes - caught most of the sunrise and warmed up nicely as the run progressed - put in a few efforts and 1 or 2 hills to work against - quite a tough run all in all - but enjoyable

Nessie73 - keep battling through it and it will come good

Some big miles being put in here

18 miles today and my longest and slowest run yet.  I've had some issues trying to get my LSR slow enough.  Got close to cracking it today with an average mile pace of 9m/m and a heart rate about 73% of max.  Very hilly which does not help keeping it down but feel like i'm getting there.

Bright, crisp and lovely winter's morn.

7 miles then 6 by 100m strides this morning.

Good weekend's work all,

15 miles yesterday for me. 7m easy followed by 8m at mara pace. Missed a few splits as getting used to refuelling with my new belt. Felt strong at the end though.

Keep it up all,

Wow, congrats to all who put in a mahoosive one over the weekend!

Put in my longest for a while yesterday. 8 miles. LogYourRun app stopped at about mile 1 though so the 1hr30 isn't prescise and may be a minute or two either way - but it was about 11m per mile.

I want to run the half I've signed up for in sub 2.20 so need to pick the pace up a touch over the longer distances, but I'm confident I'll get there.

Oh, on a lighter note part of my slightly slower time was because at about mile 4, when I was furthest away from anything resembling a public convenience, I had an overwhelming urge to use the toilet - and not the sort you can stand at the side of the road to do.

So there was a two mile stretch of bowel controlling running and a stop off in Asda!

Matty, that's happened to most of us at some point.  The odd LSR i've actually carried loo roll with me if i've been feeling a little potentially leaky before I had out.  Can't hold nature back if she wants to make herself known!

6m recovery run today, 1.5 with the dog.  Lovely morning, almost light for the whole run, sun peaking up on the horizon and the ground had a light frost covering (not seen much frost this winter, plenty of sub zero nights but not a lot of frost cover as a result.  Bit odd).  Very nice running conditions.

Six mile recovery run this morning.

Mon 1.00pm - woodland trail with Fudge - very easy pace - good to run with the sun on my face - no idea of time or distance - purely run for the fun of it

happy running all

Love that Neil was the first to reply to Matty, what with the surname

Ha ha!

6 mile recovery run - I dream of days I can do that!

Ha ha!  It was actually me, every so often I accidentally log in with an old profile that was a registration gone wrong.  Yeah, i've had all the jokes about "got the Trotts" etc but in recent years, Laura and Jonathan have done wonders for the family name

Whereas you're new alias is far less relevant

nice scatological theme. Always good to see on MLR

3.6 miles for me tonight.  Hard to fit much in during half term. It's surprisingly cold out there

19/02/2013 at 06:16

4M steady yesterday and today. Okay runs.

19/02/2013 at 08:27

6m steady today.  Very cold but clear skies and still.  Nice running conditions again, getting too used to this...

Yup, lovely morning here too for a daybreak run.

Intervals for me this morning. 6 x 1km at 7min/mile with 1 min recovery. The splits got progressively quicker too. Last one was 6:40. Nice to start to see some improvement again - it had all seemed to plateau for a while. Got a half next weekend that was scheduled more as a training run but may test myself a bit on that!

 @Nessie - I needed a dictionery to understand your post. Impressive dirt vocabulary!

extra solo track session at Battersea Park to make up for humiliating result at Parliament Hill xc.

Pyramid intervals: 400, 800, 1200, 1600x2, 1200, 800, 400 at target 10k pace (4.25m/km, 75secs recoveries). Enjoyably tough.

Where's your half Dunky?
