Best wishes for Fudge's return to the run

I've alternated 4- & 5-mile runs this week, today's being the only one that was niggle free.  Oh well, I'm getting out there!

Nessie, Dunky, SB and swittle - Fudge says 'thank you' for your encouragement

Sat 1.00am - 6km woodland easy run in pretty wet conditions - a busy day meant that time was short - rest day yesterday ...... couldn't have slept comfortably having had 2 consecutive non-running days! - hence the unusual time of run

having said that, it was a pleasure to be out with not a soul about - always a head clearer

pleasure to be part of such a friendly forum - good luck to this weekend's racers

Easy one to stretch legs. Cool, no wind or rain. Not bad at all.

12 miles in heavy rain tonight.

Sat 8.00pm - 14.1km (59.21)

splashed my way around the roads this evening - felt sluggish to start but enjoyed building up a good head of steam and increased the pace throughout - didn't mind the rain - in fact, it was quite refreshing

keep it going everyone

18 miles this morning.  Raining again...

19 mile LSR yesterday in some constant drizzle.

On and on

17/03/2013 at 17:15

Constant rain at the Reading HM, but managed 1.42 - a PB by 7 minutes.

slightly disappointed not to get closer to 1.40 though - need to up the mileage.

17/03/2013 at 20:06

baldbloke - congrats on a massive pb

Sun 7.00pm - easy paced run this evening - 40 mins approx - mixed terrain (mostly involving mud)

happy running everyone

Eased into new week. Cold and looks like snow

Catch up soon.

18/03/2013 at 08:23

baldbloke - You really shouldn't be disappointed after knocking so much time off your PB, that's a top effort.  Very well done to you.


Another bright but frosty morning here in this never ending winter we're enduring.  8 miles GA, 1.5 with a happy hound.


Good running all.

Mon 8.30am - 8.5km woodland trail with Fudge

I fancied an easy paced leisurely trot while he fancied a full on lactate threshold tempo run -- compromised with a mixed pace

beautiful morning with some spring sunshine and a crisp refreshing breeze

dig in everyone

Fleet half yesterday, did it in 1.42 and a new pb for me by 4 minutes!!

18/03/2013 at 17:14

10.5 miles in the sunshine. took the gopro out to get some pics for a merrell competition and just enjoyed the trails for a bit.

Great photos marc, where did you find the sun?

18/03/2013 at 17:37
Some good running happening here. Well done on your PB baldbloke and some great photos there Marc.

I took advantage of the Bank Holiday over here in Ireland today, (something to do with some British guy who was captured by the Irish and then rid the island of snakes) and got out for a training run.

13.1 miles in 1hr 52mins, wasn't too bad as my PB is only around 1:46 ish and this was only a training run.

I had my first ever run well walk and a run on sunday. At the young age of 42. Ive been wanting to run for a while but felt a little silly. Thinking well when i come out if the house do i then start to run or walk. Didnt really know do started walking quite fast them attempted to run for all of a minute and had to stop.its luke my body didnt want to do it. But my mind does. I see runners all the time and they run with such ease and just glide along with what looks like no effort at al. How lucky they are.. Does anyone have any advice. My mind wants to run like the people i see.but my body is not up to it x

just stick at it, it will come to you, when i started running again i struggled to run a few 100 meters, after a few weeks it was a mile, then a 5 k then 10k, hal marathon etc etc.. 

best advice imo is not to give up. sign up for a race, 5k or something small, a cheap one, give yourself a goal and go for it, you paid your entry money so the incentive to not give up is there.

oh... and dont read any posts by David Falconer on here, 

good luck,

ashley: Welcome.Don't feel silly.

4M fartlek on a cold windy morning. Flakes of snow falling.

hi ashley. i started, at a similar age to you, with the Couch to 5k programme. It works really well and is easy to find online, or you can download it as an app. you can sign up to do a 5k at the end! good luck and welcome to the thread!
