HI Jason, finally managed to put a few decent weeks together after Chester. I entered too may races in November and it knocked my mileage down a bit. Shouldn't complain though, I have new PBs at HM and 10K which nearly make up for the disapointing run at Chester marathon.


Hows your running been? Still banging out the miles I see!


5 slow miles to day, the epitome of a "recovery run" as the legs were a bit tender.

5 easy miles for me today. Been very lazy lately but finished work for christmas now so set myself a challenge to run every day for the next 12.

Gaz-Well done on the PBs! I took November pretty easy after Chester and Snowdon. Just starting to build again now- this week is the first of my 18 week plan for VLM

Just over 9 for me tonight. Last run in the dark for a few days with a bit of luck

Be careful JD, you may scare the local kids if you don your new running togs (cloak and mask) running in the daylight

A 6.6kg free range bronze turkey has just taken up residence in my fridge

Pork and beef for us this year JD

Nice easy 2 miles before breakfast this morning. The wife is NOT happy about me running every day over christmas. This surely has nothing to do with the fact she's currently injured? Nice slow 6 or 7 planned for the morning.

2 supermarkets taken on today and an oven cleaned! Nothing like a nice relaxing break from work!

20 muddy and sticky miles for me this morning - I actually only meant to do 18, but I got lost!
23/12/2012 at 16:51

Clairster- NOOOOO! to cleaning

YP- get lost more often

1.2lbs put on here in the last week of dining out and mince pies... 16.01m for me today followed by 0.43m warm down. Ok for a fat boy!

nice slow 7.05 this morning. 3 days in a row. Feeling good.

23/12/2012 at 21:54

Still worrying about the weight Jason?

Hi all

Have only managed 4 1/2 miles this month due to a recurring calf strain. Have physio on 3rd January so nothing more for me before then.

Santa is bringing me a Grid roller so hopefully I can use that to some effect before seeing the physio. Have a great Xmas all.


24/12/2012 at 08:45

GFB- Hope the roller does the trick...

Bit of a damp start, but the first run of the day done and dusted: 6.5m recovery. Off to make turkey stock now.... before the next run! Trying to clear tomorrow's running commitments today

Good morning, RW types!  It's looking like a close finish as we finish 2012.  Best of luck, all - and big festivities all round

24/12/2012 at 10:44
Swittle - same to you

Nice pic by the way - is that from an early morning run?
24/12/2012 at 10:49
Spittle- Merry Christmas!

Stage 1 of Operation Trifle complete. Smell of cloves which are studded in the honey roast ham coming from the oven is making me feel very hungry! Off for run number two once ham comes out
24/12/2012 at 11:13

Cheers, YP!  The pic is 12th century Sandal Castle near Wakefield at sunset - much of my earlier running was done there.

Good health to you too, jason - sounds like a culinary triumph in the offing

24/12/2012 at 12:57

Ham's done. So is second run 8.08m.  Lunch next, followed by stuffing making before next recovery run

24/12/2012 at 18:32

Hooray!!! 4th run done and dusted. Xmas nearly ready- just sprouts left to peel. 4 runs today = 25.1m = rest day tomorrow without compromising weekly mileage MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYBODY!!!!!  Right, where's that bottle of red?
