Post details of your last run and what you think of it
Hope the hound recovers well, cidlad.
7am on a cold, grey Merseyside morning and my running pal & I visited Crosby Coastal Park and Rimrose Valley for 5 miles, 80%+ off road
Whisper iot softly but the calf's holding together so far...
swittle - thanks - and I'm glad to hear things are stable with the calf
Sun 7.00am - 90 mins hilly mixed pace run on the roads (19.3km)
frosty and cold - roads a tad slippy in places - awaiting some off road shoes that are on order - so looking forward to some runs involving less tarmac in the near future
push on everyone
Cid - That's terrible re your four legged running mate. Hope he's back by your yomping side with haste.
Longest run yet for me, 20 mile LSR. Dry, cool, still. Perfect
I too snorted a big laugh at redjeep's post
22 mile run this morning. Major gut problems due to fish and chips last night. Ended up doing one mile shuttles between toilets.
thought I might go down with a case of the Surrey Runners or the Strangely Browns after a double portion of spicy Piri-Piri chicken at lunch, but in the end got round an evening recovery run in Hyde Park for 11k at 5.15m/km.
feel sorry for Fudge but not for the stupid pooch who tripped up one of runners during the Club handicap yesterday. she got some nasty cuts (the runner, not the dog!)
4M Fartlek. Okay run. Dry with no wind.
baldbloke - piri-piri chicken is well worth the risk of a mid-run toilet crisis IMHO
8m GA today, felt decent despite my 20 miler yesterday. Cold morning but dry yet again. It feels so long since I last saw rain, this must be one of the most elongated dry spells that Manchester has had in years, getting on towards 3 weeks now i'd say.
10.5m LSR on Saturday, new distance PB for me. Legs feeing it still but off for a short run this evening to try and loosen them back up.
Good work all, and well wishes to Fudge
PB woop woop! Followed my slightly strange strategy and felt strong throughout. Knocked 5 mins of the PB and clocked in at 1:32:30 - dead chuffed. My father-in-laws PB is now 5 mins away - he's getting twitchy!
@dunky Which HM was it? Tasty time that
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...
