Post details of your last run and what you think of it
@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.
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
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.
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.
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!!
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?
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,
