On the downside, the Sunday 7 miles were hideously hot but on the upside, the strong winds at least meant that we were wind assisted on the outward stretch!

Took my gf out for her first run yesterday...did 5 min walking warm up then 10 x 1min running - 2 min walking. So proud! Carried on and did an extra 5kish after by myself in the lovely evening sun round the park near my folks house.

Well done Mrs CP!

Various congratulations particularly Ella and Cid.
Got a great big insect in my eye. 5.93miles in 50mins. A bit further as ankle felt okay at first. Unlike the rest of me which had forgotten how to run and ran out of energy at 3miles. Picked up, and then my foot got uppity. Still, quite enjoyed it.

Feeling your pain Swittle after my pavement dive last week. I ran the rest of the way with blood running down my legs. Grrrr.

Swittle- nice fall mate.

JT- the insects are always suicide bombing into my eyes, see my post a few days ago.  Altho I took the advice of a wise bloke and wore my running glasses tonight

me- hills. OK

8.30pm and avoiding pavements like the proverbial  Trails up to Burbo Bank & the coastguard station and a clear run on firm sand, watching out for the poor, stranded jellyfish, back to the Baths and trails & park back home.  5.7 miles, 50 min.

Just a little 4m recovery run, quite strikingly chilly for the time of year.  Glad you're looking after them peepers Nessie

Does anyone else get jealous of swittle's running routes??

Intervals: 8 x 400m @ 6:15min/mile with 1min rec

Super tough!

Yep she's giving it a go. Out again tonight!

It's a big bonus living 10 minutes from the sea: there's also a variety of dunes, coastal paths and trails, as well as Antony Gormley's installation, 'Another Place', a hundred 600kg cast iron likenesses of him over 2 miles of beach and going 1km out to sea.

There, I gain inspiration from their uncomplaining vigil in all weathers.  Will try to post some pics.

7am and my running chum, back from Russia, called for me an hour early! We had a walk & catch up and I ran to the beach, around the Marina and over Brook Vale Rec & Chaffers track.  5.2 miles, 45 min.

  Cheers for sharing Swittle - fabulous pictures - no wonder that streak is still intact!

Good Friday this year, low tide, sunset

Swittle - nobody likes a gloater! 

Looks amazing, I want to run there.  Only about an hour away for me too.

I may have to take the phone out to grab a few pics next scenic run.

Nice to see what MLRers have been plodding through all this time!

I run through Bury, I think it's best angle might be through the blur of an interval sprint

In seriousness, the meat of my run is on a path that winds through some semi rural/river edged space and it's actually quite nice.  I'll take a snap or two sometime then.

Swittle- beautiful

Dunky and SB- may try to join you with some running pics. Not of the streets of Walthamstow perhaps, but one of my lovely Epping Forest runs

Me- did my second running club today. My beginners did a highly respectable 2ish mile run / walk around the field.  I did a ten minute tempo sesssion at the end.  Am really enjoying it

Recovery run tonight in Battersea Park. 8k at 5.30m/km.

if it's nice tomorrow evening, will try to get a sunset shot of my lovely route on Hampstead Heath

5.5km in some drizzle tonight. A 1km fairly steep uphill section not too far in, then a more gentle decline route back down followed by a couple of km on flat back around to where I started. Nice comfortable 5:55min/km average pace.
