Griff - well done on the 10 miler. Think this is our last fine day for a while..

JD - good running as always. you dont need to lose any more weight!

Hospital appointment went ok today. Consultant was a bit strange....on medication for the next 6 months.

Just entered the Kent road Runner marathon on 1st June. It's 17 laps of a course which is a big cycle circuit - should be mind numbingly boring, but I'm up for the challenge. Will have to sort out logistics for the day and try & get my parents to support...

Feel v tired but hope to do a short run after work - weather looks so tempting

By the way - what's this obsession with beetroot juice?  I'd be terrified of spilling it down my clothes...reckon it's a b*gger to wash out!

GN you clocking a lot of quality miles

LTS hope the medication sorts it,17 laps thats going to alot of mind games

just done 6 miles 1st run 5 days

LTS- I need to shift around a stone as it happens!! Beetroot juice is great for running- details

MM61- well done on the run

Griff- nice 10

6m recovery run for me this morning- started at 5.45 and for the first time this year, i could turn my headtorch off for the last 2m 10m with 8x100 strides this evening in 1.13.28 and my legs are starting to feel looser again

Afternoon guys just got in ,the rain is back,16 miler done 3 hrs,bath time now lol.????
06/03/2013 at 13:44

Awesome running Griff,you should have a great marathon !!

10.35 miles for me last nite,and a longish one tomorrow with some speedwork thrown in Bit milder here today but more snow forecast for next week,....spring is round the corner

Hello, Good running all. MM, Griff - you are really training well - think you have all worked hard for your marathons.

JD - thanks for the beetroot link

NR - hope you are feeling ok? It is milder this week. The rain hasnt really done much yet - dont want to jinx things though, let's hope Margam wont be a mud bath....

Just been for a gentle lunchtime 4 miler with a couple of colleagues. Had a good natter about PTH...I'm missing the club & wondering why I left, so considering joining 2 if poss. one as 1st claim, etc...

JD - the most laps I have run on a track is 12.5 for 5k, so the 17 lap marathon will be a challenge. I wanted something to test me physically and mentally.

JD excellant again buddie

GN your a machine mate great going

MM nice running buddie

LTS  much either with people around you

06/03/2013 at 14:44
It looks like we are all given it a bash for our respected marathons,but we all know how hard it is,but we love it,keep it up all.lol????
06/03/2013 at 16:12

thats a 1st for me 8 miles done don't normally train on consecative days

still very poor mileage compared to everyone else

06/03/2013 at 16:25

MM61 you can go for the hat trick tomorrow mate Well done anyway make the most of it as you could be snowed under again next week


06/03/2013 at 17:18

MM thanks buddie,just thought i'd clock some miles

06/03/2013 at 19:54

LTS- There's always the Barry 40 I'm doing it next year- MM has generously offered to lap count, and I'm going to hold him to it!

Griff- nice LR- well done

MM61- speedy 8 too

My plan was to run 15m with the last 5 faster tonight, but body and mind overruled plan in favour of 12m without getting faster. Can still feel Sunday's half and supposed to do a tempo session Friday so easy does it 12.05m in 1.28.12 (7.19 av)

Evening all

One of my friends has been doing the Park Run for a while now and is enjoying. Well done on organising.

Sounds like everyone is running well.  No pain, no gain!
