Great effort today and for the week, S32OOH

Well done S32. I was out today for a recovery run and the wind was a real killer, I wouldn't have fancied 18 miles in it!

Thanks Jason, Gaz.   I am doing Blackpool mara in April, and i am told it will be windy so may have been worth it, not that my legs would agree this morning.  

what do you think,   must have been the same as running at least 22 miles in normal conditions  Just trying to jusify how bad my legs feel

Not a chance I was venturing out yesterday. My hamstrings were tighter than a............................. never mind.

Gym this morning for an hour and 8 mile recovery this afternoon I think. 13 tomorrow on my visit to London and then back to Sheffield for intervals at the track.

Are you running London jason d? What you aiming for?

28/01/2013 at 13:17
You from Sheffield Dave?

Chapeltown to be exact S3200H - you?

28/01/2013 at 19:40
I am in Lodgemoor. Used to work in Chapeltown just of Station road

MC Dave- a gentle jog before stretching is the best cure for tight hammys Yeah, i'm running London- too early to call for a time though, but am hoping to get a PB (2.49 last October with a couple of hills and tight hamstrings from 12m....) and sub 2.45

What a day! This morning I managed 0.1m before realising that the roads and pavement were lethally slippery- and no sign of grit Plan B came into operation- a mind-numbing 6.5ishm of laps of a very muddy football pitch in the dark. This evening I did a tad over 7m recovery again, this time in a RIDICULOUS wind.

Still - on a positive, 13.46m for the cause today and sees me pass the 400m for the month point

Jason -  Had the same issue this morning, ran in to work last night and 8 miles home this morning which were meant to include 5 fartlek but was hard work with icy pavements.

Hello! Not logged for a few months simply because I kept forgetting but I'm back in the game now.
28/01/2013 at 21:08
Minni!!!! Welcome back and woohoo for the boost!
28/01/2013 at 21:10

Minni -  welcome back, your mileage has made a big difference.  Maybe we can renew our little challenge, starting  next month.

28/01/2013 at 21:14
You're on Barry!
28/01/2013 at 21:23
Hi Jason! Glad I remembered about this before the end of Jan.
28/01/2013 at 22:31

 Hi Minni, those miles made a big difference.

11 for me today that takes me over 300 miles for the month. Very happy with the total as January includes recovering from a marathon on New Years Eve and a mini taper for the cancelled Helsby Half.

Great running everyone

I'm being super sensible and slowly building back up, which seems to be working as my last 3 runs have been pretty close to pain free, with no after effects on my calf.

Last week was a 25mile week, this week will hopefully be 35+, and if that all goes smoothly, then I'll be back to normal training, and ready to start the 12 week P&D 55-70 schedule in prep for Milton Keynes.....

Small world S3200H. Some nice running around lodgemoor, redmires and rivelin. I was brought up in Walkley and spent many days in the Rivelin Valley!

Jason - 5 miles around a muddy football pitch in the dark? Screw that - your insane! I'm also doing London and looking to get close to 2:30. Had 2:38 in Amsterdam that was very windy this year and 2:39 in London last year that included a 3 minute stop for blister treatment - so frustrating!

Just done 14 from Kings Cross to Brent Cross to Victoria ad maybe some intervals at track tonight if I get home in time.

Fingers crossed that the traffic is kind

Hi everyone,

Some good mileage going on. I'm afraid I won't be much help for the rest of the month as I am supposed to be tapering for the Thames Trot 50 on Saturday, though at least that will be a good start to February!

29/01/2013 at 21:14

Dave- It was 6.5 round the football pitch Good luck with the 2.30- hope the traffic was kind

Charlotte- Besttt of luck with the Trot- make sure you give us a race report

Had to juggle my schedule a bit after Sunday's enforced club race- still feeling it in achilles and calves. So just the 2 recovery jogs today for 11.87m- back to it tomorrow

6.5 miles = insaner 

Traffic was awful so no track tonight. Gym in the morning and 8 miles in the afternoon. 

10x1k on the treadmill Thursday - I hate Thursdays!
