Thanks for all the wishes

I did my beginner's running group at work today, with a great turn-out after the summer break. Followed by a short fartlek session for me.

What:4M Steady in 'smiry' (light) rain and mostly off road

Okay session

Damn and blast.  Developed some tendonitis in my right foot so been told to knock the running on the head for two weeks.  The new shoes are still my enemy right now.  Not the worst timing though I suppose as I am off on hols for two weeks on Saturday. As the holiday involves about 2500 miles of driving,  I should probably heed the advice and look after my peg.

Good running, enjoy the rest of the summer all and catch you in a few weeks.

Dunky - that sounds brutal  and deserves a well done

Wed 7.30am - 8km fields and park with the hound - steady pace

grey skies but a still morning - good running conditions for me - seem to have hit a plateau at the moment with no races planned and a lot of same paced running - maybe not a bad thing as I'm enjoying running without the numbers

keep it going everyone

Eek for Dunky's intervals - and boo to tendonitis, SB.  Hope you're soon fixed.

Out at 7am with run bud to Coastguard Station & back down the beach, where the last high tide had brought in fields of seaweed!  Back home over the dunes, pleased that the hip pains of last night had subsided.

Cheers Cidlad and swittle.

SB - hope it's a speedy recovery mate. Enjoy your break and rest up!

Up at 5:30 for 12 steady miles this morning. Last 2 were tough.

Keep it up all.

Chin chin,

Feeling for you SB. Keep getting a bit of tendonitis in my right foot/ankle myself. Have been using a little PEMF device (think it's called iheal) which has had some beneficial effect. Bought mine secondhand - one of those things people buy and if they don't get any immediate results they stick on Ebay/Amazon.

Tricky run today. Went in a loop back to where I started but felt like I was running uphill the whole way - like being in a Escher drawing. Wanted to give up a couple of times. Just one of those days. Anyway, 7miles in under 53mins.

JT141 - I adore Escher's art

Haven't run all week as I've been recovering from Cheddar Half Marathon (first half marathon) on Sunday in 3 hours 45 ... eeesh.  Probably the toughest run I've ever done so hoping and training for a better time for the Bristol Half in a few weeks time!

SB re tendonitis I had achilles tendonitis when I first started running that got so bad I couldn't even walk!  I took it to Physio for a few sessions and with ice/stretching it's now back on top form.  You may still get niggles after a few months though.  It might be worth getting running shoes with arch support when you start back up!

SB- take it easy mate.  And that sounds like a bloody lot of driving!

Me- 5k race cross country with the club.  Appalling time of about 31 mins. Ho hum

22/08/2013 at 06:38

4M Steadily done. Okay run. Need to catch up son

22/08/2013 at 10:17

JT and swittle - you northerners are cultured!

EllaDuv - that sounds tough going, good luck for Bristol

Nessie - That's not a bad time for someone in their 40s...

4.7m recovery for me this morning. Showers and warm. Nasty.

Chin chin,


(PS - guess who noticed the bold function a couple of days ago - fast learner eh)

Last run on Saturday 17th Aug -  10.7k 45:12 nice and easy, hoping to get out tonight for a steady 4 miler.

"JT and swittle - you northerners are cultured!"
...and the pet whippet loves a bit of Debussy.
22/08/2013 at 21:39

Lol!  Culture vulture, me  - and I've been to Barnsley too [to run a HM many summers ago].

DunkyD - it's format city from now on!

6.30am - one of my trail & beach based routes, about 5.2 miles and more spritely than of late.

22/08/2013 at 22:27

Thur 9.00pm - 5km woodland in the dark with Fudge for company

lack of time made for a swift one this evening - might even call it a tempo run  - anyway it was good to let of a bit of steam after a less than pleasant day at work

JT - good analogy - Escher - you learn something new every day

cultured running everybody

23/08/2013 at 06:53


4M Easy legs heavy today.

23/08/2013 at 09:13

Cidlad - good to see Fudge getting some tempo work in too!

1 mile WU / 2 x 3miles @ HM pace (2 min rec) / 1 mile CD

23/08/2013 at 16:07
Another tricky one today. I'm not going quick enough for a quick run, but maybe too quick for a normal run. Feeling heavy, fatigued and not enjoying it. My body just isn't quite in tune with things at the moment. Perhaps I need to lay off the biscuits.
Still, 9.15 road miles in 1hr9mins.

And welcome back Water Station.

Hello all

5 miles for me this morning.
