Morning all, switched my programme round a bit to fit everything in this week, work included  Treadmill run last night 5 miles at recovery so rest day today and an early one planned for tomorrow, 8 miles with 10x 100m strides, should wake me up.

Birky, is this finished finish this time?  Good early miles Valis, out early for those I'll bet. Kate Hot Yoga?  Strange pictures in my head.  MC and PSC hope those knees just get better, it's a bugger not knowing exactly what an injury is. Morning V4D, sounds like a good place to run where you live.

Hi V4D - I'm knew to the thread as well. So far this year 5 6am runs for me, which I think is more in total than the last 3 months of 2012! The 1st mile was, by far, the slowest as I think the legs were still asleep and, perhaps, slightly tired from the best 1st 7 days of a new year (running mileage wise) that I have had since starting this running lark in earnest back in 2007.

Felt like spring had arrived early this morning. Mild and dry and noticeably more light in the sky than of late. Here's the forecast from my mate Ulric, the long range weather  forecast man....

  • Models are very confused about January, though I've been looking at a colder ~8th to 18th Jan, which is probably all the winter we'll see in the UK. The astronomical analogue I'm using for this winter was one of the warmest for the last ~350yrs. I have down graded it an amount as we are now in a different part of the solar cycle, and this cycle is somewhat weaker, but still the general outlook was for milder overall.
  •  29th Jan to ~6th Feb should be cooler too. A little dip around Feb 16-19th too but otherwise a mild month.

Will be intrigued to see how that plays out Chris especially the slightly longer term outlook which few forecasters seem to take a gamble on anymore.

08/01/2013 at 11:21

Chris - I would love a mild winter

08/01/2013 at 19:32


V4D: Welcome

JF50:Yes I think it is all over come 31st March this time. Mind you I said that the last time !

08/01/2013 at 20:25

Ulric was uncannily accurate in his forecasting last year so hopefully we'll escape a big freeze in 2013.

I have my buffalo mitts at the ready Chris, the BBC agree tomorrow will be colder. 10 miles tonight with a track session in the middle, and an owl hooting at me when I got in, Ovett's English cousin birky?
09/01/2013 at 05:34

Thanks for the welcome all. Up at stupid O'clock to try out a new gym class today and running after work. I must admit it was hard to extract myself from my bed this morning .

09/01/2013 at 06:02

Morning V4D

3M a bit faster today. Colder than of late.

NW: 1 owl, 1 Kingsmill Van, 2 cyclists, 3 BMWs (BMW 'corner' ) ,PW: 1 car, 2 Large Christmas Trees yet to be taken down by council.

1 Yellow Construction Digger, as our street is getting new parking spaces tarmaced this week. At long last.

Kate: It could well be Ovetts English Cousin. What can we call him then ?

Good morning all

5 miles this morning wet but still warm here was intending to do some intervals but started garmin without putting it in to workout / interval mode. Turned out for the best as legs quite felt heavy after last couple of runs.

Nw 1 muntjac deer

Jf50, yes 3 miles or 22  4am - 4-30 out the door bar Saturday and Sunday.

09/01/2013 at 06:07

Welcome V4D..  morning early risers.

The knee seems better almost after a day of rest and self-massage!  Been out and done 30 mins of lunches, stretches, jogs and sprints around the village and the legs appear to be generally functioning.  Delighted. 

I vote for Rupert the English Owl...  as in twit, twa.....RUUUUUUpert.  Drum roll please............................

09/01/2013 at 08:02

morning all

PSC - glad your knee is ok

stupidly decided to stay in bed to try to get extra sleep as it is first week back at work, silly because I was lying awake and am now a bit grumpy from not getting my early morning exercise. Oh well


09/01/2013 at 08:29
Morning folks - 6 miles with some off road muddy bits with the head torch. 1 Hovis van 1 Warburtons van 1 dog 1 x OR. PSC, 30 mins of lunches, my kind of exercise. Valis, prepping the legs for another pb at park run? What early morning class is at your gym v4d, we only have one early spin class a week. MC, your knee probably appreciated the rest. Happy hump day all, I shall see whether the owl responds to being called Rupert later.
