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.

06/03/2013 at 08:26

5m recovery inc 6x100m strides

Morning all,

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!!

Congrats waycat on breaking the hour, and Daniel for the speedy miles.

After what has been an unrelentingly rubbish 36hrs in my life, been for a run to try and clear my head. My god it's gone cold again. An easy going 9.6miles in 1hr17. Back of my ankle was a bit sore for some reason. Feel a bit more calm again. Not much, but a bit.

JT hope all's OK mate?

Nice running cat and Daniel

Me- great club session at the track doing pyramids

06/03/2013 at 21:37
tough run tonight. Coming down with a cough but was leading the 8.30 m/m pace group so had to keep going. anyway, i managed it so 17k at 5.20km/m on our central london tourist route!

14 mile medium long run tonight.  This P & D plan is tough.

07/03/2013 at 07:44

Four mile recovery on treadmill this morning.  Doing another six recovery tonight plus strides.

07/03/2013 at 09:17

Good work SR, sounds seriously tough.

Hope all's okay JT mate.

11.5 miles Easy this morning - didn't feel easy for the last couple of miles though - legs still a bit heavy from Sunday. That was the longest pre-work run of the training plan so no more getting up at 5:45! Well deserved rest day tomorrow.

Dig in troops,



07/03/2013 at 21:26

Six miles recovery plus 10 by 100m strides tonight.

07/03/2013 at 21:55

JT141 - hope things are not looking too bad

Surrey - impressive training

Thur 8.00pm - 14.1km (62 min) - back on the tarmac for steady run in the wind and rain - felt a bit stronger this evening - hopefully that's the cold weather done with for the winter

keep it going everyone

Boys weekend away in Rome. Managed to get up early and do a 9km run, 7am in the morning on Sunday. Best bit was to see the sun rise over the Coliseum with no one else around. Worth running through the hangover, and getting a little lost adding a few extra unplanned Km to the run.
