Hi, John.

Yes - quite a few years ago, I used to enjoy the 5-milers & 5k events in those beautiful parks.  My 5-mile PB was run in Sefton Park, ooo, 9-10 years ago!

6pm y'day -  5.2 miles around the coastal park, with plenty of beach included.  A little overcast & breezy, as if a change was on the way.

Run strong & safe!

Thanks all for holiday and 40th wishes. OH and DD- pissoff Welcome Arabek and congrats birkie to your son and nephew- amazing achievement!

I snuck out for 8.2 mile run this morning. Great.  Now I'm off to check our bags are ready and driving down to Charentes - Poitou leaving around 3 am.  Lots of Chablis and croissants await

Nessie - Have a fantastic holiday and many congrats on your landmark.  Get ready for life to begin 

Dunky - I'm bowing down in humility at your tough sessions right now.  More power to your elbow....and your legs!

Fully intended to do a tempo session today but the knee still didn't feel quite right so I wimped out.  7 miles ga again but starting to miss the tough runs.  Tomorrow is the day i feel.

Enjoy your hols Ness. You may be turning 40 but you have the body of a 30-year-old...

buried in the cellar.

A strange run today. Had meant to go to the gym but changed my plans as am going out. Took a while to get going. Felt heavy footed and the splits were all over the place. Wore long compression tights as my muscles were aching having started again after a week off. Looked very fetching. Anyway. mostly off-road 9.5miles in about 1hr16.

A certain weariness postponed my run today and the lurking glute issue decided to tell me it was still live   Grey, overcast and quite a push to the coastguards against a fresh north-westerly.  Rewarded on the return down the beach where the firm surface made for ideal terrain.  Another 45 mins.

Nessie - have a good holiday

Fri 9.00pm - 45 mins park and woods with the hound - easy pace - light faded quickly during the run which reminded me of the ever shortening days  - made for an interesting second half to the run - many invisible tree roots and deep ruts in the ground which I would normally negotiate without problem in the lighter evenings - kept me on my toes

Dunky - impressive training

strong running everyone

First fast run for a few weeks.  I can still feel my dodgy knee but not enough to hold me back now and I think the faster stuff will just help it's final recovery.

6.5 miles with 4 at LT pace.  Was quite hard and uncomfortable at times but the knee withstood the test admirably and I felt rewarded afterwards.

Happy weekend all.

Superb 20-mile trail run in the hills around Dorking...lovely scenery, good company...weekend running at its best!

Back spasm has curtailed all but a very short Streaksaver late last night.  Looks like the same prescription tonight - massage, ice & pills deployed.

baldbloke - I'm envious

Sun 7.30am - 15km (69 min) - hilly mixed pace - felt reasonable - longest run for a few weeks so will start to increase the distance on my Sunday run

refreshing rain shower during the run

dig in everyone

Sounds lovely baldbloke!

Just a 5m plod today but felt good and found some nice rythem for the first time in a while.

recovery run round Regent's Park and Primrose Hill this evening. 8k at a relaxed 5.45m/km...brings me to my first 60k week (apologies to all imperial forumites, but I spent a lot of time in Spain when I was younger and I think in metric!!)

11/08/2013 at 22:02

Didn't post on Friday night, but I did 7.5km with a decent uphill, followed by a more gentle downhill, and last 2km flat and fast.

Then a 16km flat seafront run this morning which was a comfortable paced long slow run. Just a 5 mile walk tomorrow evening then back out for the 7.5km run again on Tuesday, all being well.

7 miles today with 5 x 400m intervals.  Mix of drizzle and heavy showers.  Enjoyed the drizzle, not so much the heavy showers.

Morning all,

Good weekend running. Baldbloke, that trail sounds tough but lovely.

7 miles tempo this morning for me.

Chin chin,

Mon 9.00am - 40 mins steady with Fudge

grass in the park nice and spongy underfoot - my dodgy calves were grateful after yesterday's concrete pounding - consecutive days caught in a heavy downpour - very refershing

inov8 trailroc are fun to run in off road - enjoyable trot

happy running everyone

Back spasm on its way out - should've had a rest day or two but you know how it is!

7am  A warm, windy morning for 5.2 miles of paths, trails & beach, remarking on the breakers over the sand bars that make Liverpool one of the most hazardous port entries in the world.

13/08/2013 at 08:16

5m recovery, cracking running conditions, still and coolish

13/08/2013 at 10:11

7am on a grey, breezy Merseyside day with the clouds tipping out rain as we ran up the trails to the slipway near the Serpentine.  Sandy stretch was fine but the final ten minutes plastered shirt to chest!

5.2 miles and the back seems to be sorted!

Good work Mr Run-It-Off Swittle

Ballsed up my garmin this morning so my interval session turned into a 3.5 mile jog! Will try again tomorrow.

Chin chin,
