Hi team,

Physio visit went well, and he issued the all important green light to continue with some gradual easy runs for the next week or so

Plan for this week is day on, day off, and then slowly add another days running each week until I'm back to where I was pre-injury.

This means my monthly target of 200miles is blown, but I reckon I can probably still get close to, or ideally over, 100 miles.

MC Dave- lol! I knew that, of course

YP- excellent news- but, again, go carefully

Only 1 run for me  today: 10.21 very easy paced miles- it's my recovery week

YP -Good news

Not been out last couple of days, but hit the dreaded TM again this evening, with a slow mile round trip to the gym added in, 7.3 in total. Looks like being a low mileage week .. But if the pavements clear ... who knows

Just got sent home early due to sudden and heavy snow- and it was touch and go getting the car up my hill! Looks like I'll get to try out the Yaktrax on today's run!

Yaktrax are great

13m ML run done and dusted- hard work through blizzard conditiomns. Fun not worrying about pace and uneventful ..... until 2m from home when I stopped to watch a Transit van coming down a back road hill, thick with snow, fail to make the bend, mount the bank and land on its side! Had to clamber on top to open the door to help the driver out. Luckily, no apparent injuries and he was more concerned about his van - what a plonker!! Left him with some onlookers to wait for the ambulance I got them to phone to check him over. Only problem was, when I ran up the hill to the van, I forgot to start my Garmin

We are behind, guys!!!

Jason -  Very eventful run, good effort getting out in the snow, I'm still on the treadmill due to snow on top of ice. Noticed  change around in the last few days, hopefully just a few not logged runs yet.

Barry - well done and let's hope so

Bruce- you ok???
2 recovery runs through frozen snow in my Yaktrax for a ad over 13m today

I've put a few runs up. Had to use the tradmill on Monday/ Tuesday but things seem better the last couple of nights. Hopefully a thaw at the weekend I can stop having to run on the road headlong into oncoming traffic because the pavements are icey.

What usually happens in this monthly challenge with the fetchies? Do we normally smash them or are we the underdog? Is there a tally of months lost/won and where are we currently?

Not that I'm competitive, no, not in the least bit. I couldn't care less.

Glad to see you got the green light YoungPup.

Northern XC tomorrow at Knowsley - should be fun in the snow!

This month looks like being pretty close! Last week was very poor for me (sorry guys, pressure of work and ice on the roads). got my weekend long run in this afternooon as I am out for family event all day tomorrow. So next run is likely to be Monday. Need to be a bit careful tho, calf was very tight on the run in. Hopefully just a little niggle and nothing more. Beautiful running weather tho

MCDave, can't remember the exact scores on the doors, but we were pitching for a December winner takes all for 2012, which I'm sure wouldn't be anything to do with not doing quite so well in the previous months.

Good running folks!

MC Dave- we got stuffed last year tbh! Hoping for better this year

I missed yesterday's run due to family stuff and work. First zero day for the month- first day under 13m in fact Got back on track today though- polished off yesterday's 12m this morning and 2 x6.5m recovery runs for today sees me back on schedule

26/01/2013 at 19:53

Just put my 25.22 in and we moved into the lead again

26/01/2013 at 20:13

I got us in position with my 20.5

26/01/2013 at 21:38
Gaz top man!
26/01/2013 at 21:44

And you Jason, 3 runs a day? Thats positively Kenyan!

26/01/2013 at 21:50
But none yesterday- and today's were slow
26/01/2013 at 22:07

Its raining here now and the snow is shifting fast. Its been hard work to get the miles in the last week or so. I thought I was going to get trench foot at one point.
