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 ?

Morning,

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...

4ish miles in the muddy forest for me today.  Have a great Easter all fellow MLRers.. I shall be sneaking off for a sneaky run at some point over our long weekend away

15.1 mile medium long run tonight.

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

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.

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

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.

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

30/03/2013 at 17:51

Sat 3.00pm - 10km (45 min)

went exploring some trails off the beaten track - found a couple of bridle paths which gave a bit of variety to my normal route - new trail shoes slowly bedding in

enjoying my running - hoping everyone on the the thread is going well and running strong

15 miles along the canal. It was a good morning, but there was a strong headwind on the way out which was bitterly cold. Don't know if it was this or poor nutrition as I'd not eaten anything, but I felt terrible for the first 5 miles or so with no energy. I almost bailed a few times but kept going.

Pleased enough in the end, think I may go for my first marathon in 5 weeks.
31/03/2013 at 09:42

Redjeep - go for it

Sun 7.00am (or was it 6.00am??) - 21km (1.37) - pavement pounding mixed pace

Glorious sunrise and icy cold - warmed up quickly enough - legs tired towards the end but a decent run - some lovely views in bright clear air - as fresh as it gets

good easter running everyone

Thanks Cidlad. That's good running. These cold mornings are great once you're out and warmed up, but the temptation to roll over and go back to sleep can be hard to resist some days.

I reckon if I can do an 18 miler next weekend then I'll be up for the marathon.
31/03/2013 at 13:53

12.19 miles this morning including 5 by 1200m intervals.  Taper time at last!
