11 miles into a vicious wind, it really cuts deep that icy wind,

Doesn't it just Marc?

8miles inc 5x600m @ 5k pace.  Falling light snow again, nasty bugger of a wind, temps hovering around zero.  The weather Gods are poking fun at us now.

Nice sunshine in Chelt this morning - still freezing though!

8 miles easy this morning - legs felt strong again and confidence restored! Roll on Brighton

distinct signs of a thaw in London...twice round a loop of Regent's Park and Primrose Hill for 11.5k at 5.30m/km...feeling pretty tired after Reading HM and the Orion 15 on consecutive weekends

Nessie - will definitely be heading back to Epping Forest soon. It's a beautiful place to run and it only took me 10 minutes longer to get there than Richmond Park! One of the Orion Harriers also told me about a midsummer fell race they organise, which sounds a lot of fun...

Five miles on the treadmill tonight.

Excellent session at the club this evening which I really needed as work continues to be gruelling.  7 x hill reps followed by 2 miles tempo. Felt really strong and a million times better.

Great running.  Baldie, am pleased you're impressed with our forest  one of my fave runs is mid-winter with head torches through the snowy forest.  Magical

7am - beach and x-country combo, 5 miles or so and a minute faster than last time.  Cold but v pleasant in the watery sun and greeting dog walkers on the wide Crosby sands

4.5M fartlek Hard. Snow on ground and lightly falling. It cushioned my footsteps !

It is 28th March, not 28th Dec with this snow ?

The sun is shining! 6 miles with 4 at mara pace this morning for me. Feeling good.

Have a good long weekend all and run off those hot cross buns and chocolate...

28/03/2013 at 21:34

29/03/2013 at 01:06

Thur  11.00pm - cold but fresh air to greet me and Fudge when we started out - woodland trail lit by a full moon in a clear sky

easy paced run - nice loosener to round off the working week

good running over the long weekend - enjoy the tapering

22.11 miles this morning.  Getting my long run in today to free me up for Easter.  Tough doing 22 miles after 15 the night before.

Wow, you're on a mission SR!!

Really chuffed today, I broke a big marker.  Did the Salford 10k as a warm up race for the Manchester mara and finished in 38.52, broke 40 for the first time (my second 10k race) and took 3 minutes off my PB.  I feel a reward beer or two on their way

29/03/2013 at 14:53

HI SB,

 

Determined to get under 3 hours for London even if it kills me!  Got two shortish runs left this week then onto taper.  Though being on the p & d plan taper is reletive...

Great time for you  at Salford, you won' be that far off a three hour marathon with that.

29/03/2013 at 15:00
excellent pb, strangely.
as for me, disappointing 5k in hyde park...arms went weak half way round and only managed 22.20...one of those days when I wonder if I'll ever really improve!

happy easter to all MLRers, especially Fudge
29/03/2013 at 20:30

SB - well deserved beers

baldbloke - keep at it - there is improvement in ALL of us

Fri 7.00pm - easy 6km on a cold but pleasant evening with Fudge - eased in some new trail shoes on the woodland trail - looking forward to the extra hour of daylight for those evening runs

dig in everyone

Thanks all.  Cid - The beers were cold, sweet and went down effortlessley  With you all the way on the daylight

 

Surrey - I've said on another thread that I can't help but have one eye on sub 3 because my times are coming down across the board, all the time.  Sensible wisdom, though, dictates that stretching yourself too far on your first marathon may not be the best of approaches so i'd probably settle for a finish and a resonable sub 4 time. 

As for you, hard to imagine you won't crack it with all the grunt work you've been doing.  Fingers crossed it all pays off.

Back OT, 7 mile recovery with 6x100m strides on a chilly but stunning, bright and still morning.  Loved every single second of it.

30/03/2013 at 10:54
Eight miles plus 8 by 100m strides this morning.

I headed to the beach to catch the sunset and hopefully take some pictures.   I wasn't disappointed.

 

5.2 miles in a strange, interval-like way
