There are so many thoughts on flexibility and stretching but the concensus seems to be that pre-run static stretching is not really required but that getting muscles up to temperature with movement and possibly dynamic stretches is  good.  Post run static stretches are good.  However the thought on flexibility seems to be that being very flexible is not an advantage at all

My old PE teachers taught us how to stretch properly. I never really appreciated it back then. I try and do 5mins stretching a day before I run,

I never stretch before running, only after

Evening all - no run today as bloomin work has been all consuming for the last couple of days, and when client meetings have wine involved I can't say no, MC, you set a good example I can't follow. TG and CR, best of luck for Beachy tomorrow, it will be cold, I hope it's clear so you can enjoy the views. Last year was such perfect weather that if I do it again I will be disappointed unless it's the same! Valis, no racing this weekend, Miss F is with her mother for a couple of days so we are having some freedom, which may include a trip to the bike shop.... I'm a advocate of stretching, normally only after, but my new coach is a big fan of the before as well, will post the moves soon. Have a good weekend folks.

snow here this morning

had a lie in, may go to the gym later but I have a pile of marking that I have been ignoring all week...

Morning all and welcome Guv, that's a good session for a Saturday.  I'm up early today but only because I am at work, again

27/10/2012 at 10:49

Matsh: Really where abouts are you ? My nephew lives up in Aberdeen and they've got snow.

27/10/2012 at 12:39

Afternoon all - a few snowflakes here this morning, freezing cold 6 mile run and bootcamp, finally warmed up in spin. Guv, that is early, lots of being up without the excuse for a run which isn't good. Off to the bike shop shortly as I start emptying my bank account straight into the pockets of the triathlon people. Have a good weekend everyone. A bit late, but good luck for Snowdonia Chris if you are lurking.

birky - I am near Nottingham! Not much snow, but a covering

Kate - this is just the start of the emptying of the bank account. My OH gave me a strange look when I excitedly opened a packet with a pirate buff in this morning. He doesn't know about all the other kit I have ordered....maybe I should tell him before it comes. Even he is going to notice the different gear....

Morning rock stars.

Morning all

Yesterday park run took it easy.Today just two miles same route as Wednesday but added a little more pace to give the lungs  a bit of a short, sharp workout. Crossed fingers I feel good at the moment .

Psc. It light for a while but its now Winter

I don't mind Winter so much... rain is a bit of a bore, but cold I can cope with.  As they say, there is never the wrong sort of weather, but there is the wrong sort of kit!

Glad to see you back on your feet Valis.

28/10/2012 at 07:35

Cheers Psc ,other way round for me I don't mind the rain.

28/10/2012 at 09:33

morning all

woke with a headache so not attempted anything yet, although I should have stayed in bed as the internet keeps cutting out and it is driving me mad!!

I don't mind the rain once I am out in it, but the thought of going out in it can be off-putting, It is better not to think and just to go...

Morning all - great run this morning, 11 miles over the hilly trails in the light, I'm with PSC on the cold and dry weather, it means I can wear my ridiculously large fleece gloves and stay warm without getting waterlogged. Looks like I'm going for a Cannondale bike, going to try one in London today, then heading to the affordable art fair and treating Mr F to Bond at the Imax. Staying in London tonight too so will pack my trainers for an SOC down the Thames. Valis, glad you're out there again, MC hope the headache disappears. Have a good Sunday one and all.
