Holy moley was that wind cold today... It whipped me in the face and made it tough to breathe for half the route but still came really close to my 5m PB on this evenings tempo run. Good recovery from saturdays 12. Pleased with myself!

Strangely Brown, so kind of you to comment   Have to agree about what my Dad would have called a lazy wind - cuts through 'cos it can't be bothered to go around  4.1 miles before 7am today through the Coastal Park & over Brook Vale rec.  A hard ground frost had banished the puddles!

11.5miles the strangest run for weather ever, it went from sunshine snow sunshine blizzard gale force wind sunshine crazy

12/03/2013 at 08:24

5m recovery with strides this morning, 1.5m with a very excitable hound.  Very cold again but bright and sunny at least.

Marc.S - I agree. Even wierder - there was bright sunshine and snowflakes, but no clouds for about half an hour - it must have been blown over faster than the clouds I guess!

about 8 miles for me with 4 x 2km @ 7:01 min/mile and 2 min recoveries in the middle. I took in the racecourse this morning to get some of the festival atmosphere - may be snowed off now!

Tue 9.30pm - interval session for a change

1.5km warm up (5 x 600m with 1 min recovery) 1.5km warm down

short but not so sweet

good running everyone

10 miles recovery on treadmill tonight.

13/03/2013 at 09:08

Morning people.

Cidlad - Very similar to my session.  Did 8 miles with 5x600m intervals @ 5k pace and about 1.5 min recoveries.  How's the hound by the way?

Really enjoyed it, dry bright and cold again here.

Morning all,

Lovely morning here too - not quite as cold, bright sunshine by 7am - lovely.

10 miles easy - legs feel just about back to normal.

Keep it up all,

Strangely Brown - thanks for enquiring about Fudge - he gets his stitches out on Saturday and hopefully I can start to get my running companion back into his routine soon after

Wed 8.00pm - easy 6km on a cold but still evening - woodland trail - enjoying the easy runs at the moment - no races planned but I may have a go at a parkrun next week to see how little speed I have in my legs

impressive running everyone

Cidlad- sounds like good news about Fudge.

Great running all

Mine isn't great. I've done something to my shoulder which is very sore and I'm wary of not getting injured since a friend of mine had similar last year and had to defer her marathon place 2 weeks before the event... So a very tentative 5 mile club run for me tonight. It doesn't feel worse but not any better...

13/03/2013 at 21:14

15 mile medium long run tonight.

14/03/2013 at 09:51

Morning all,

Look after that shoulder Nessie and I'm looking forward to welcoming Fudge back to MLR cidlad!

A nice swift 5miles for me this morning with midlle 3 at mara pace. Lovely fresh morning with bright sunshine.

Five mile recovery run this morning.
15/03/2013 at 08:54

Good luck with Fudge tomorrow Cidlad, glad to hear he's nearly back

Today was the first run in the rain for about a month.  Not heavy but steady rain throughout.  10.5 miles done, 8 at LT pace.

15/03/2013 at 10:57

On your last run, you didn't run????

3 easy miles this morning - bit odd running for just 3 miles but just followed the plan and went with it! Made me think back to 3 years and 3 stone ago when 3 miles had me crying...

Keep it up troops,


15/03/2013 at 14:31

12 and a bit miles LSR for me.  Wasn't very easy and weather was horrid. Rain is fine but the wind was vile.  But I pushed through so am fairly pleased.

Dunky D- thanks for the wishes. Shoulder feels bit better, thanks

Dig in all

been very off-grid in the North York Moors this week. fitted in two hilly 12k runs, but a quiet week running-wise to taper for the Reading HM on Sunday.

@Nessie. I will be "warming down" the weekend after with the Orion 15 in Chingford/Epping your manor really as hilly as the organisers make out?

15/03/2013 at 20:55

@baldie- I've not done it and can't do it ATM cos of the cut-off times (you need to maintain a 10m/m throughout- which i could NOT maintain over that terrain)... but it's bloody hardcore mate.  Many of the club members say it's harder than a marathon.  It will be hilly and also very very very muddy.  Many of our runs go off the beaten track quite a bit so be prepared for lots of brambles and wear some really knackered old shoes. Having said that, it will also be excellent, friendly and beautiful in the forest. I shall probably be marshalling, so see you there

10 miles with 6 by 1km intervals tonight.
