Post details of your last run and what you think of it
Lovely evening in London town. Still stiff from Sunday's trail race, but managed 11k at 4.40m/km, i.e tempo pace.
this is week 1 of training for my first marathon - Amsterdam in October. Here goes...
5.7 miles at 6am today to Burbo Bank & Coastguard station brought the Streak to 878 days
A beautiful, calm, soft, warm morning with acres of sandflats laid bare at low tide.
baldbloke - enjoy the journey
Wed 8.00pm - Fudge and I hit the trail on a muggy evening
10 min warm up - 15 min tempo - 10 min warm down
a short sharp session to keep things ticking over
run well everyone
I took my first running group today after work, and was nervous, but really enjoyed it and I hope they did too. Mainly beginners / returners. Followed by a little bit of threshold work
Nice running all
Hills done with mile warm up and down. hard. Dry, dull, warm.
Good running going on.
Hi Baldbloke - I'll be in Amsterdam in October too but only for the half, my first in that lovely city! I'll be the one with the ridiculously pink face and the ridiculously fit husband who won't even have broken a sweat.... Good luck with the training!
Baldbloke - good luck in your prep! You too Lilytoo - or said another way Lilytoo too
Well done Nessie on your group work - hope you weren't to tough on 'em!
Me - 5 miles with a couple of efforts.
Me- 4 miles in my lunch break
Great session at Kirkby track tonight , 8 miles with lots of short and long efforts
4M Easy/Steady on a warm dull, smiry rainy morning.
6 miles GA, Only two words appropriate enough to describe the weather this morning, f**king biblical.
SB, we keep doing the same run!
6 Miles in f'in biblical rain here to. Got so wet I now have sore nipples - oh dear
Lilytoo, are the Amsterdam races finishing in the Olympic Stadium? It's superb!
0600 and a neglected route revisited: Crosby Village, Blundellsands, Coastguard Station and a long stretch down the beach. Just in before the rain too.
Just over 5k last night for me. Same route as I did Tuesday night, so 1km fairly steep uphill at the start then a more gradual decline back down to sea level and a couple of Km's on the flat. Nice route overall. Rained a fair bit but could have been worse!
Have a good weekend
Hi Swittle - yes I believe so - really looking forward to it! I used to work for an airline that flew there so me and OH have been going to Amsterdam on and off since we left university thirty odd years ago and we've been there at every stage of our lives so it'll be nice to mark the 10th half marathon we'll have done together by doing it there
Some nice running all. It was fairly pishing down here too today but also fairly warm, which are great conditions for me. So I did a lovely 10.2 hilly miles. Came back soaked to the skin

I wondered who that was clomping along behind me!
Hi, Lilytoo. You'll know the course then. I ran the Mara in 2004 - loved the section that went *through* the Rijksmuseum!
Hope your training goes well and here's to a terrific race
Fri 7.30pm - 5km woodland easy pace
didn't mind the rain this evening - found it quite refreshing - Fudge came back like a drowned rat
looking forward to a local 10k on Sunday
good running weekend everyone
Some good training going on
4.5M Steadily off road for me. Okay run.
