4.5 miles last night including the big hill thats on the race route and did it a minute faster than last week, but felt it. Sunday 8, Monday 3.5, Tuesday 4.5 means wednesday = recovery!

10 miles - easy this morning. Bit tired for last mile but felt good. Still loving the lighter mornings!

Just rescued my Garmin watch from the washing machine. It had gone for a rinse with my running stuff. Seems to be okay.

Mainly road and a bit of compact trail (avoided the mud). Back in the minimal shoes (NB Minimus this time - how many shoes can you own before it counts as an obsessive disorder?). 8.25miles in 1hr. Bloody cold again, and surprisingly strong headwind on the way back. Half-term so a few shouts and hoots along the way. Serves me right for wearing tights. All playful and friendly though.

1 hour on the treadmill in the gym. Furthest/ longest I've ran since I twisted my ankle 17 weeks ago. It also felt great , ie uninjured, the day after, so hopefully I'm almost ready to go back on the road.

Nice one Redjeep.

Me- hill reps with the club.  Cold / tough-- I went with the fast lot tonight and it really pushed me.  Feel great now tho

good to see some positive vibes

Wed 8.00pm - 14.1km (60 min) - hit the roads for a change and ran it hard in the middle - feeling in decent form at the moment

JT141 - just received my new garmin - previous one found in Fudges's kennel in bits - I nearly put him in the washing machine!

steady running everyone

9 mile GA run then 8 by 800m with 90s rest between each.  Very cold outside, -3 allowing for wind chill.

4M fartlek. First fartlek in ages. Cold, frosty morning.

I've done it twice before - it's a small but well organised event that takes in the Tarka Trail and even goes through a tunnel - choo chooooo

Ha ha!  You should make that noise as you go through it.  I ran through the tunnel under Old Trafford in a race last year and made the appropriate retching noises  Best of luck mate.

14m GA run this morning.  Man, how cold does it want to be?  Brrrr.  Decent run though until 12 miles in where a cretinous owner decided to let his blind/dumb dog race around right in front of me causing me to rapidly divert my running path.  This seems to be like encouragement to the hound and he also changed his path and ran straight into my legs.  Big old unit but it didn't half yelp.  I yelped a bit too but stayed on my feet, just - sore leg but no real damage done.  Of course, Mr cretinous owner didn't offer a word of apology and merely threw his hands up into the air incredulously, as a Frenchman who's Sancere was served warm, would.


On and on.

6 mile recovery run on the treadmill tonight.

21/02/2013 at 22:21

Now up to 21 minutes' running - minor discomfort only.

21/02/2013 at 22:58

Thur 10.30pm - 6km easy pace woodland trail - a bit chilly this evening - nevertheless still an enjoyable way to round off the day

keep it going

3M easy. A recovery session.

22/02/2013 at 08:33

Swittle - that's excellent news for you and the streak

6m recovery, cold but not as cold as yesterday.  Loving the dry pavements/roads.

22/02/2013 at 09:10

4.5m yesterday. Coldest run ever. At no point during the run did I feel warm despite running it at a decent pace (for me)

22/02/2013 at 10:28

Thanks, SB

22/02/2013 at 11:31

Good work all, and well done swittle for your persistance!

5 miles this morning with 6 x 200m hill sprints - ouch


22/02/2013 at 21:09

11 miles on the treadmill tonight.

22/02/2013 at 22:47
Another hour on the treadmill. My recovery seems to be going well, but the first couple of km are still pain full.

Hoping to get out and do my favourite canal towpath run this weekend. First time I've been able in about 18weeks .
