Congrats all. Didn't go well today. Garmin couldn't find a satellite, or believe satellites exist, so left it at home. Then had to pull out of the run as my right heel/ankle/shin were really painful. About 1+ miles. Have been exhausted the last couple of days and done nothing the last three. Feel rough and fed up that I'm injured again, and have somehow managed to get more injured by not doing anything.

Yesterday's strong winds had eased a little but tacking up the beach didn't appeal, so I ran a reverse route through the coastal park past the Marina, having taken advantage of the NWesterly whipping up living tails of sand that headed for eyes & ears!


5.2 miles.

Dunky and baldie- some excellent racing and very impressive times for you both

SB- some tasty training for you as well mate

JT- sorry to hear it's going badly.  Try to rest up a bit 

Me- hills.  Still full of a cold. Hard

Dunky - Very solid effort in dodgy conditions that.

Nessie - Running with a cold - bleaugh!  Hope you're mending nicely.

5m recovery, delightful conditions.  Cool, sunny and still.  Very nice stuff.

4M Steadily done earlier. Very still and quiet when out. No wind at all.

Cheers all and wishing you a speedy recovery JT.

I can copy and paste SB's run this morning:

"5m recovery, delightful conditions.  Cool, sunny and still.  Very nice stuff."

Chin chin,

Cheers Ness and DD. Tried another run today. Am thinking it might be better to keep going on it, but in moderation. Stopping seems to make it worse. Achilles and heel painful but manageable. Tripped over. A few cuts and scrapes but nothing worse. Strangely it sort of took my mind off my injury and I enjoyed the rest of the run. Lovely sunshine. Even the garmin was working. 3.6miles in 31mins incl. time spent face down on the pavement.

JT, you're in the wars!  Hope you heal soon.


6am on a beautifully calm, clear, sunny Merseyside morning - and guess where I was running?  High tide had left the sand firm and even and, for a while, the whole beach belonged to me.

5.3 miles

Nice evening for a run. Did a 5km route with a 1km fairly steep uphill climb. (Its almost a 50m rise over the 1km, though the second half of it is steeper than the first). This was my first hill run and actually enjoyed it. When I do the same thing next week i'll be adding about another 1km to this hill climb.

Enjoy your runs everyone, lets hope the bad weather is behind us for a while.

58:46 10km whopeeee

26/06/2013 at 04:50

Tue 9.30pm - 7km easy pace

enjoyed another gentle run in the park with the hound 

trying to do the majority of my running on grass so as to reduce impact - I've been running for about 5 years and it plays a big part in keeping me sane - it also is the key motivator for keeping me off the fags (which I packed in 4 years ago) - don't know how I would cope without the running - it's the best addiction I can think of

booktrunk - well done on your achievement

4.6M Steadily done. A mixture of paths and off road. Okay run.

Sunny, warm and now wind.

Cid - Running addiction or nicotine addiction?  Not much of a competition eh?  They couldn't be further apart really.

8 miles GA run today, 1.5 with the dog.  Dry, cloudy but a touch cool again.

26/06/2013 at 09:56

Swittle - wheres the streak up to now?

Simon - well done for braving the hill and keep it up.

Cidlad - stay away from those fags!

Me - 7 miles with 5 of them steady. Lovely morning here,

Dinnerbreak 5 miles  -  or more likely 5.5 what with all of the swerving past the ramblers, pushchairs, wheelchairs, dogs, ducks and bikes on the towpath.  Very hot but very beautiful.  I love living here.  Trying to stop being *quite* so pink, ready for my meeting later....

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...

26/06/2013 at 21:40

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.

26/06/2013 at 21:59

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

26/06/2013 at 22:48

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

27/06/2013 at 06:05


Hills done with mile warm up and down. hard. Dry, dull, warm.

Good running going on.
