Good work, DunkyD and Yay! for the PBs

Tweaked the calf Saturday - 2.2 miles was 2.2 too much!  Tended the ailing leg y'day and 1.1 last night & this a.m. seem to have done no harm.

Mon 9.00am - 8km off road in some serious mud -  I wanted an easy run whereas Fudge wanted to up the ante - we compromised

thanks for the kind comments  - I have focussed on that pb for the last few weeks and it was a relief to get it out of the way - time for a new goal

good running all

Did the 21 mile Meon Valley plod, my legs are absolutely hammered!! Great experience though and by far the toughest thing I've ever done!!

Congrats Rob. Some superb PB's coming in. Bloody hell Surrey R, 1hr24 is very impressive. I'd have been struggling to keep up on a bike!

Another pretty good weather day here. Clear but not too cold. Seem to have missed all the bad stuff. A quicker run on roads and pathways. 7.5miles in 54mins. Slower first mile then very steady splits, overall average 7.15min/miles. Stamina at maintaining a pace is much better having shed a stone and a half (although I feel kind of skinny and less, well, robust). Times keep pushing down though which is fun.

Big result, Robert M

4M Steady, cold and dry up here

Well done Robert

Nice one Robert - great feeling?

Just a nice 4m recovery plod, half with the dog.  Dry, calm and cold this morning.  Very nice

Robert M - that is one hell of a run, well done!

JT/B-ri - stone and half is a lot off - that just from running?

7 miles this morning with 4 x 1 mile at 7min/miles with 2min recoveries. Felt easier that I thought it would with Sundays long run at race pace. Haven't missed a single session of the training plan so far and just realised I'm now over half way! 11 miles before work tomorrow, early start indeed.

Keep on keepin on all,

10 mile treadmill run this evening

12/02/2013 at 23:22

Tue 10.30pm - cheeky 6km boggy woodland trail (headtorch needed) with Fudge

had to be squeezed in late as we were out celebrating my daughter's birthday. Ran within 30 minutes of a very substantial chinese meal

comfortable running everyone

4M Steadily done and an enjoyable outing in falling snow White out up here.

Okay so I admit to really enjoying running in such conditions.

13/02/2013 at 10:33

@cidlad - great motivation - you won't catch my running at that time of night after a good Chinese!

@birky - mad man - hope the snow stays away from here!

11 miles easy this morning. Although last 2 miles didn't feel so easy. 10 mins late for work too, this is getting tough!

Well that wasn't easy. Strong gusty wind and snow. Fine when it's at your back. Bloody awful running into it. Went off-road in my vivobarefoot trails again. The electricity pylons were humming in the snow. Followed the river bank. Very muddy in places. Hit a few surprise puddle that left my shoes full of water and mud. Very cold feet. Had some earmuffs and a buff over my face as the snow was like shrapnel in places. Anyway 13miles in 1hr52. The lights here keep flickering on and off. Better press reply quick before we get a power cut.

4.5 mile club run in pretty vile conditions

13/02/2013 at 23:27

15 miles this evening.  Cold, wet and windy.

14/02/2013 at 06:18

Morning you lot

Snow all now gone. Just 3M easy as legs stiff today.

14/02/2013 at 08:01

Club run in Hyde Park/Green Park/St James Park. 11.5k at 4.50m/km

First outing after a week or so of flu, but don't seem to have lost much form.

14/02/2013 at 09:10

@JT - Good work - conditions sound tough!

@baldy - welcome back, glad you're feeling better

5 miles this morning with the middle 3 at HM pace.

Chin chin,

SLUSH!  I hate slush.  It's worse than ice, snow or just good old fashioned rain.  It splish splashes iced cold water into your trainers with evry bloody step.  It's slippery and it makes you run slower than you want to.  I've had it with winter now, bring on the daffs please.

Anyway, I reluctantly completed 11 miles in the deep slush of the North West this morning.  On the plus side, legs felt strong and good and I felt like I could have done another 11 with little trouble.


On and on.

Perfect conditions in Yeovil today, 4.5 miles averaging 9.32 per mile.

Last 4 short runs I've knocked my average mile pace down by 15 seconds each time.

Well chuffed
