45mins steady off road. On farm fields overlooking Glasgow airport.

Not a bad run. Dry, bit cold.

Nessie - I fear the big yellow thing is still llosing it's fierce battle with the blowy cold thing   Best of luck in the HM!

Dunky - Thank you sir, i'm feeling positive about it, the training has gone really well so far

10 mile GA run with 4x1200m 5k pace intervals.  Man that was tough going, still fully bedecked in gilet, hat and gloves.  Warm up for God's sake!

Nessie - good luck for the half!

mikase and SJ57 - keep at it!

6 miles easy this morning. Loving this taper, although having to try and reduce my calorie intake.

Keep it up folks,

7 Miles for me just under 55 minutes it still seems so cold, trying to complete 1000 miles as quickly as possible this year but because of weather and work only upto 242 miles so far

20 miles in 2:49, pretty windy and threw some hills in. last long run before vlm.

easy 8k round Regent's Park and Primrose Hill. last run before the Paddock Wood Half Marathon on Sunday...Nessie, is that the one you're doing too?

after a tough winter, looks like lots of MLRers are "tapering" now...and hopefully we'll reap the rewards in the upcoming races!!

Thanks all for the wishes.. it's my local Waltham Forest Half I'm doing sunday.  SB- the bloody sun was teasing us. We've had snow blizzards in East London today.  Hubby went out on his bike and came back like the abominable wotsit!

Five mile recovery run tonight.

04/04/2013 at 21:35

Thur 8.00pm -  40 min (9.5km) (Fudge free)

easy start / middle 5km hard tempo run / easy finish

felt reasonable on the tempo part - endurance and speed starting to improve - trying some new shoes (pure drift) in my transition to less cushioned shoes

dig in everyone

Just a little 4m recovery.  Cold and sunny again.

05/04/2013 at 09:50

Morning all,

5 miles this morning with middle 3 at tempo.

Lovely sunshine this morning - good running on the weekend all,

Hello, people!  Hope you're all running strong

Ran after dark the last three evenings, taking in Marina & beach - shapes that aren't there in daytime seem all too real at night!   Looking for path off prom, I found a kerb and went over on my hip - looked round, altho' slim chance of anyone being around to witness it!

5.2 miles each.

16.2 mile longish run increasing speed/HR every 20 mins .... Running mile13 at 6:45 after a long day at work tends too hurt a bit! Decent run enjoyed it

45mins Steady  mixture of paths and off road

 Dry, sunny, frosty morning up here.

5.2 miles around the quiet roads of well heeled Blundellsands at 9pm.  Not a soul to be seen.  Whisper it low, but there are v few niggles to report, so I'll turn up for the Baildon Boundary Way off road HM nr Bradford tomorrow and hope to finish before the walkers!

Wonderful 20 mile LSR.  Started in the creeping dawn with cold and frost, by halfway it was bright and even everso slightly warm in the sun.  Not even light winds, just still as a cave.  Being alive and running felt as good as anything could today.

From here until April 28th, it's taper.

Cidlad- i've been doing almost all my running in the Pure Drift for the last month with a slow transition from Xmas... I hadn't intended to move over the minimalist shoes but I got them free as a RW tester, and loved them, did a few shorter runs in them every week for the review.. I'm now finally getting rid of the painful swollen toe I've had for about a year of using the Asics.. the wider box seems to suit my feet

Me- did my local parkrun at a very easy pace to get my legs moving for tomorrow's HM.
