Trial for new parkrun this morning, some extra miles afterwards and 6.5m this evening in the bitterly cold gale force wind= 14.92m for the day

Taking it easy today. Legs didn't feel too good today after yesterday's 10 miler, so just a recovery 4.5. Planning on a longer run tomorrow

I seem to have recovered from my calf strain and have logged just under 14 miles for the last few days. Had my first outside run since 27th November this afternoon, 5.4 miles. Had no reaction so am looking forward to ramping it up over the rest of January

Good news Gary just remember to build up gradually!

Just logged a 15.5 miler for this morning. Really enjoyed running in a group again for the first time in a long while. It just meant I did 9 of those miles at 8mm instead of my usual 8:30. Oh Boy that felt like hard work!!! Am now about to go against all the recovery principles and enjoy a long hot soak in a bath(!) Well... it was cold out there.

Enjoy your running folks

Gary- great news and welcome back
Juggler- good running Hope the hot bath worked
20.01m for me and the mileage seems to be paying off as it was one of my fastest 20s, but also the easiest I've ever run. Followed with 0.34m warm down

Gary -  Good news on the comeback, take it easy.

Good weekend for me Parkrun yesterday and 16 today, nice running Juggler,  and impressive as always Jason.

Thanks for all your advice and well wishes. I managed to sneak out for another 4 this afternoon, that was after a 6 mile walk with the Mrs!

Well done Gary, ramp it up carefully eh?

Nice one Jugger!!


Just 5 miles for me today.

Sorry team, but I've dragged myself onto the injury bench, and told myself I can't get off until I've sorted out an annoying niggle in my left calf.

This means last week's mileage was woeful, and it's probably going to be the same this week

Barry- good running there

YP- take it easy and get yourself fit again, matey

Gary- like Gaz says, take it easy- but well done

Gaz- Every Little Helps

2 recovery runs for me for 13.13m

14/01/2013 at 21:28

thought you must be injured YP, hope you get sorted soon.   rest day for me today, going to battle this week to get the millage in, new kitchen going in this weekend so loads of sanding and painting to be done

Just tried my morning run- postponed after several attempts at finding an area NOT covered in sheet ice!
Postponed, but not cancelled....
15/01/2013 at 20:17

Jason, good positive vibe that!

YP, take it easy for now. You know it's best, altho' we all sympathise with the feelings of frustration

Barry, sounds like a good weekend

Gary and Gaz, good steady work!

S3200H Good luck with the sanding and painting!

Just 3 and 7 for me yesterday and today. Finding it difficult to fit the time in, but the hot bath at the weekend seems to have helped the recovery, and I had no reaction from the previous injury (which does sometimes play up in the cold weather!)

Good running folks

After this morning's aborted effort, icy roads and darkness tonight saw me juggling my sessions and turning to the joys of running 15m on the track... A bit slippery, but at least it was free of frozen puddles and floodlit. Pleased with the run cos it felt really comfortable- just as well as I had to turn the brain off and get into a rhythm to keep my sanity while going round and round and round....15.01m followed by 0.52m warm down

15/01/2013 at 22:58

Excellent effort Jason Not sure i could have done that, even if it wasn't freezing cold!!!

16/01/2013 at 06:24

Two early morning runs this week and my motivation is back on track. Bit chilly but soon warmed up. Good running all

today - 3.07

16/01/2013 at 10:13

Morning all. Half way to my monthly projected miles of 120

Keep on running!

16/01/2013 at 18:33

15.15m for the day- including a tempo run

17/01/2013 at 21:25

A chilly 4.64 miles for me at lunchtime, I really like cold crisp days.
