One of my favourite runs this morning.....6:30am round some beautiful parkland near my parents place. Only about 3.5 miles but just so nice in the quiet seeing the mist coming up from the lakes.

Well done Redjeep - great work!

Sat - Parkrun PB of 20:17. Not able to do another for a few weeks but then that 20 minute barrier is mine!

Sun - 7miles with Brother and Father-in-Law. Taking in two river routes and getting charged by sheep. What Sunday running is all about.

Mon: Hard pyrimid workout: 200m,400m,800m,400m,200m x 2 @ 6:18 with 30sec recoveries. Knackering!

Chin chin,

Nice one Marc S. How was it?

Dunky- some great running

Me- 4.5 miles in the balmy forest.  Great as ever

Thanks everyone.

Well done book trunk and Marc S.


First recovery run tonight. Was meant to be 10miles at 10min pace, but I bailed out after 8 miles. Feeling a bit better than I was before the run. Must be something in these recovery runs !

Booktrunk and Marc - Congrats to you both.  How did you get on?

Just a little 5k GA run today.  I've done the whole of 16 miles since my marathon a week and a half ago and that was my last run before going away for a week tomorrow.  I am, of course, taking my running shoes though

Well done to redjeep, book trunk and Marc S and anybody else I've missed.

4.5M Steadily earlier. Mind you I was up at 1:10 am with Geordie (our black Labrador) who was 'needing' !

Knackered by the end of my run today. Haven't felt like that for a while. A combination of time out injured and feeling a bit out of sorts. Anyway, 5.6miles in 43mins. An extra mile today and not slow, but I felt pretty rough. However, no heel pain. Hooray.

5 miles hilly cross country club run

08/05/2013 at 22:10

thanks guys, it was hot, too hot, dehydrated and sore muscles as a result, but happy i finished, and in a time better than i'd have guessed this time last year, missed my goal time because i got hit by the temps, but that goal was set in the past 2 months based off my 2 long (22 mile) training runs, in much cooler temps.

Hilly 7 miles with club.  Got loads of suggestions and tips from an experienced marathoner and really enjoyed it

09/05/2013 at 08:50

Hills done earlier.

5.2 miles in my dinner hour, this time past banks of bluebells and the wild garlic coming out  in flower    one more long run to go before the half marathon.....  hope it cools down a bit.

Think I said I wouldn't do more than 6 miles while still coming back from injury. Yeah well. 10.6 miles today, leisurely 1hr29. Couldn't have pushed today and had to take a bottle of water. Have got a bug or something and an upset stomach. Heel/ankle no problem. Windy (both me and the weather), but not so bad (the weather).

3.5M Easy off road on fields Okay run.

Sun breaking through clouds.

Really rubbish this morning, got about 2 miles in and just had no energy! walked a good part of it back home. Does not bode well for race on sunday

Had to have a couple nights off this week after an annoying foot sprain was picked up on the weekend.

Did 5k on the local seafront promenade last night and went well (pretty windy, but has been worse). Had planned to be doing 10k originally, but that changed due to my sprained foot.

More than anything I was just glad my foot had completely sorted itself out after the rest and ice.  I am running in the Swansea Bay 5k on Tuesday which is my first ever event so was worried over the last few days that I wouldn't shake the sprain off in time, but surprising what a few days rest did.

CP - don't sweat it, just take it easy before your race, and good luck for it!

I'm feeling sluggish still, 4 weeks after mara

Did 4.5 miles this morning with middle 2 at target HM pace. Breathing okay but legs feel heavy and I seem tyo have no kick in my form at the minute...

Good weekend's running all

10 miles very hilly route in prep for St Albans HM in a few weeks- which is hilly- but nowhere near as hilly as today's route. Surprisingly, it was one of those rare runs where everything comes together and it feels easy.
