Post details of your last run and what you think of it
superb work, Dunky! what's that more than 10 minutes off your HM time in 6 months?
Nessie, it was Bideford, Devon - lovely run along the Tarka trail (well the last 2 miles didn't feel so lovely!)
Baldy, I hadn't even clocked that - yeah, October's PB was 1:44 something so 11-12 minutes off that! I'm over a stone lighter so that's helped, along with the improved fitness. Get the mara out the way then I'll focus on breaking 1:30 me thinks!
DunkyD - epic pb
Thanks everyone for the kind thoughts about my hound Fudge - he was left in a bad way last week - he had further surgery today to repair a 3 inch wound that had severed deep through the muscle on his foreleg - Fudge lives for his runs and will be out of action for a few weeks - but I'll get him back out again when he is ready - your kind words are greatly appreciated
Mon 7.00pm - 6.5km easy woodland trail run - recovery needed after a hard run yesterday
dig in everyone
DunkyD - that's pasted your previous PB - well done!
Surrey Runner: I hear ya
My buddy, Jose & I braved cutting winds by Crosby Marina at 7am and put the world to rights: the run was over too soon! Calf's better than it's been in 4 weeks
4M Steady. Cold, bit foggy. Okay run.
DunkyD - Fantastic run, hearty congrats! Did you "choo choo" through the tunnel?
12 miles GA today. Really cold again, how cold have the mornings been this winter? Incredible.
what can I say...spring has arrived and just been out for a loop of Regent's Park and Primrose Hill in the first genuinely warm sunshine of the year...an utterly superb outing, with my favourite view of London from the top...8k at 5m/km - but this was not a day for watching the clock...
A frosty 5 miles at 7am along the beach and back via Crosby Marina and Brook Vale Rec. Slower pace and mostly off road - no reaction from my calf!
Nice one Matty, swittle.. good to hear you're getting back to form.. Baldy, couldn't agree more. 4.7 miles through a still very muddy Epping Forest and it was just beautiful.
just got back from a 10k race simulation, i've been neglecting speed in the past 6 months in favour of distance as i'm training for marathon and not 10k/13.1 which are my usual distance's to race.
Finished only 2 seconds behind my PB and that included crossing traffic and main roads, had today been race day i'd have knocked a clear minute off my PB at least. very pleased.
9 mile warm up followed by 5 by 600m intervals tonight.
Morning, 4 Steady miles for me. Bit of a plod.
5m recovery inc 6x100m strides
Thanks for the congrats people. @SB - forgot to 'choo choo', the tunnel was at mile 10 though and I was getting tired by then!
6 miles Easy this morning - legs heavy but working okay,
PS - loving Surrey Runers nice short warm-ups!
Wed 12.00 - 8km mixed pace and mixed terrain - relatively warm - didn't feel as fresh as I expected following a rest day yesterday
still an enjoyable run
good running everyone
No frost but a very chilly breeze to battle against down the beach - similar route to y'day with Jose, my running chum - a minute slower over 5 miles.
Finally cracked the one hour mark!
For weeks I've been building up from 35 minutes, to 45 minutes, and then for the past two weeks I've been stubbornly stuck on 55 minutes.
But today I added in one extra loop at the end of my planned route, and when I got back home and checked the clock - hooray, exactly one hour since I left home!
I know it probably doesn't sound much, but I always used to be a treadmill runner, but since heading outdoors I've discovered how very different the two are, and how much more pleasurable it is to be outside.
Who knows - maybe in a month or so I'll be up to an hour and a half????
First solo 'fast' run in nearly five months following ITB issues. 3.2 miles @ 6:58 min/mile. Nearly killed me!!
