Another "double": 3 in the morning, 7 in the evening Likely to be much quieter over the next few days tho, very little running time available, so will probably have to forego the long run for this week. Still, as snow is forecast, perhaps it's just as well that it's this weekend.
Well done on the halfway mark Grant.
JR, good to hear the motivation is back. I always think it's a nice feeling when you start to want to get out again after a period of simply dragging yourself out cos you should ...
And good running Gary and Jason.
I'm still a little behind schedule but with my mojo well and truly back i'm hopeful of hitting my modest target of 60 miles for January. No way i was venturing out at 5am this morning, far too dangerous but once I finished work, I tiptoed up to the canal tow path and had an easy 3 miles. Not that the freezing cold, wet conditions made it easy but thoroughly enjoyed it.
Looking forward to a nice slow 10k or so Sunday morning
Just 3 today. The snow is pretty thick on the ground. Looks like I'm tapering for Sundays Half Marathon whether I like it or not!
Just 6 for me today. Jog down and to the gym and back, just over 5miles on the TM, good for keeping the pace up, but toooooo boring to carry on for longer. Take care in the snow
No internet connection yesterday, but managed to run! Best of both worlds- made a big snowman in my garden with my boy, then discovered that only 2 miles away the roads were snow free! 14m followed by 1m warm down
5 snowy miles for me yesterday, but a but slippy underfoot today so 18 on the tready.
18 on the dreadmill is great commitment, Barry
2 runs for 14.6m for me today.
It's getting close, guys- keep it going! Don't want to find myself on the losing team on a 400m month
Wow! This is close. I logged my 6.3 from yesterday and that moved team RW from just behind to just ahead of the Fetchies But I'm sure there are unlogged miles on both sides.
Unfortunately, I won't get a run in today. By the time I've finished lesson prep, the gym will be closed, and the roads are just a bit too icy round here after dark!
Enjoy your running guys, all still to play for!
Waves to all
It has got a lot closer in the last few days, Juggler....
20m long run followed by 1.33m warm down to take me to over 300m for January
It was cancelled due to weather mate. I mini tapered for nothing. I'm a bit pissed off but I probably needed the cut back week any way after 3 heavy weeks (thats what I'm trying to tell myself anyway!!)
Keep up the good work guys/ gals. We're getting pegged back a bit here. Tek is throwing the miles in!
Managed 10 miles yesterday and 2.5 to work this morning
Right then - I'm back on it this week after illness has put me way behind schedule. Did manage 10x1k on the treadmill with 90 secs recovery at 5:30 pace on Saturday morning. The only part I enjoyed was the warm down - the rest of the session made my eyes bleed.
7km on treadmill this morning and back to the gym for 10 miles tonight
Gaz sorry to hear about the cancelled race. Not much chance of me catching you this month - and I'm in danger of breaking my "at least half Jason" rule...
Good running RW peeps...
Sorry, been a bit slow in updating. Now brought up to date - hope to go out this evening if it isn't too icy.
Well done Team
I might, possibly, if I'm lucky, and all things going well, be about to allow myself off to clamber tentatively off the injury bench and join in again.
10 days of rest, plus two deep sports massages on my calf have got me to the point where I'm willing to test it with some gentle runs and see how it responds.
I did 5.5 easy miles yesterday which felt fairly normal after the first mile or so, and I followed it up today with another 4.5 around the streets of London. If I'm being completely honest my left calf still feels tight and a little stiff / bruised, but it is a thousand times better than it was, and I'm hoping that some slow, easy, flat miles will gradually loosen it out completely.
Tomorrow is a rest day, and I'm going to see a physio and hopefully get some strengthening exercises to make sure it doesn't go pop as and when I start back on some proper mara training...
CR- well done
YP- sounds promising, but take it easy! Slow, easy miles- but not too many- followed by some good stretching may well help
MC Dave- was that km pace or mile pace?? Well done either way
2 recovery runs for 13.25m for me- followed by sports massage
Mile pace of course JD
Good luck young pup - hope it goes well.
13.3 miles yesterday and off for 10 miles at lunchtime which includes a visit to HMV before they stop accpeting gift vouchers again.
I'm assuming that heavy snow will put paid to track tonight
