All welcome jasonisme. No matter the mileage, as the challenge will no doubt help you improve that anyway

No more for me until tomorrow, finding my feet again post-TDS and the miles yesterday felt ok. And today is a non-running strength workout day (figure I need some as starting to look like the old Mr Muscle)

Evening all,

Looks like the weekend is going to be lovely, so no excuses not to hit the outdoors for some nice late summertime long runs

9.6 miles slow and easy for me today in the sunshine - very hot and sweaty, but very enjoyable.

Great all terrain run today, zapped me, still got a lot of Alps in me legs obviously  Will be a tortoise and hare month for me.

What's a tortoise and hare month?

Is that the same as a "slowly slowly catchy monkey" month?
08/09/2012 at 21:22

That would be a better description really. As tortoise a hare is wrong way round for my meaning when I think about it

08/09/2012 at 23:24

Cheers, guys!

More miles added yesterday when I ran part of the half mara course and some added today before, during and after the race.  Not the place for discussing times, but suffice to say that the training paid off as I PBd the Half by nearly 5 minutes

And PBd at 10m

And PBd at 10k

Hi Barry - it was in Medoc in France. A great trail marathon and definitely one to do!

10/09/2012 at 19:30

Emmy -  Seen the race in RW, is it true there's wine at the drink stn's?

10/09/2012 at 19:47

@Barry - there's not just "some" wine - you run through the wineyards and stop at every chateau! I drank at 20 wine stops but there were a few more that I missed. There was not just wine but oysters, steak, ice cream, ham sandwiches, cake, fruit - everything that you could ask for! It's an absolutely iconic race and it feels like a big party. You run from stop to stop and everyone is in fancy dress. It's absolutely fantastic.

a total of 6 miles for me today.I ended up cross training on the bike and headed to the gym for some relaxation.

10/09/2012 at 22:30

  Well done Jason!  That is bloody fantastic!

10/09/2012 at 22:33

Cheers all

Back to the grind today 2 recovery runs for 11.58m
