4.5M Steady off road. Darker this morning,

Mind you I was out about 30mins or so earlier than normal.

I enjoy morning outings.I have done so for 29 years now (!) since I started regular morning running way back in Aug 1984.

Lovely contrast between the sky in the east with the sun rising and the darker sky of the west.

Birky - Impressive stuff, 29 years!

Welcome back Redjeep - your hols sounded tops.

Good work all on the strong weekend running. .

7miles tempo for me yesterday. Shower issue means I skipped a run this morning and this evening will be spent re-sealing and swearing.

cidlad - rest is never wasted.

JT141 - I got into a bit of a fizz when my shoes were half off but pulled clear.  In up to my calves!

Nessie - thanks! I never tire of running in their company: 5.2 miles at 0630 today.

Dunky D - a shout for grout!

DD- re-sealing and swearing sounds like my kind of DIY.

Me- led my beginners group.  I think they're making some progress although I think we were all still suffering the effects of the bank holiday weekend.

Impressive work, Nessie...still getting plastered in your fifth decade!

Club track session tonight. 2x(2k+1k+1k at 10k pace, 90 sec revoveries). 2min recoveries between sets. 10k pace for me currently 4.35m/km

A session as tough to run as it was for the coach to explain!

Tough session at park with running club tonight, plenty of efforts, a few days rest now before the blackpool 10k on saturday, hopefully get a pb,  fingers crossed.

Morning a 5M Steady outing. Dry, warmish, dull.

Dunky: Yeah started running seriously at the end of the1984 Olympics. Kinda inspired by it as a 17 year old and have just kept it going.

Wed 7.30am - 7km steady run in the park - Fudge having a rest day today

lacking a bit of bounce this morning but enjoyed being out in the cool conditions - sets you up for the day

dig in everyone

0630, and I took the trails to Crosby Marina, enjoying the almost solitary nature, as well as a cooling breeze as I ran up to the Baths & completed my circuit via the footbridge & Victoria Park.

Impressive endurance, birkmyre

Baldy - that session sounds tough!

John - Good luck for Blackpool

Good work the rest of ye!

8 miles tempo for me this morning. Went well and took in a new route. Bit bumpy though so pace was a bit up and down but nice to change up the mid-week scenery.

You are a true runner birkie, in awe

Baldy- nice session.  And 5th decade... ouch!

Me- 5k cross country club race.  Still a fairly crap time but shaved a few seconds off last week's even crapper effort.

29/08/2013 at 07:09


5M off road, dark, low cloud and mild when out

Nessie: Cheers. Don't think of myself as a true runner. Just a runner Well done on your improvement on last weeks 5k.

7 miles - 6 tempo, and a jog in to cool down. Nice morning - bright but a good temp for a tempo effort.

0630 and the porker made itself known as I got to the Baths.  Turning at the Coastguards', the golden glint of early sun could be seen on the coastal buildings in N Wales and on the Wirral. 

5.2 miles, ice and pills afterwards.

Wasn't really looking forward to my run, but it went fine. 10 road miles in 1hr17. Still feel like I'm labouring, but not so much as other days. My right shin has gone weird. Had a problem with it last year which ended up with an MRI scan and no running for 3 months. Not painful as such, just feels odd. Think I can manage it though. Feel like I could do with a damn good slap to shake me out of this running fug.

Lovely evening for an easy recovery run. 8k around Regent's Park and Primrose Hill as the sun went down on a beautiful day...

29/08/2013 at 22:19

Thur 9.00pm - (1km w/u - 4km tempo - 1km w/d)

Fudge is not a keen fan of tempo runs - he prefers interval work, where his recovery is a sniff in the woods for various forms of wildlife before catching me up at full pace

enjoyed a short but sharp workout in warm conditions this evening

Got an email inviting me back to join a running club where I used to be a member - nice and friendly, but I'm just not sure I want the obligation of being a member of a running club - pros and cons

run strong everyone

0630 Mild, warm and sunny.  The hip/porker has eased a little and picking my way along the tide line on firm sand seemed to suit it well.  Greeted by the Wolfhound pack at the Baths - owner's going to get me a picture of them!

45 min and 5.2 miles - most enjoyable

Glad it's settling down swittle.

Cidlad - when's Fudge's next race?

5 miles with 3 at tempo for me this morning. Have a top weekend all. Last long run this weekend for me before a bit of a taper for the Cheltenham Half.

Chin chin,

Nice running all. Take it easy swittle

Me- 4 miles easy.  

Looking forward to getting some miles in again once kids are back at school next week and I have my Fridays back for a LSR
