A nice 6am 5 miler for me this morning (11th 6am run so far this year) after a couple of days of not been able to get out at 6am on account of a very late (& very rare) night out on Saturday (club presentation) with a few (equally as rare) beers - it has taken me a couple of days to recover - thankfully not hungover, just tired - last few beers until after my spring marathon me thinks!

Morning all - 6.7 miles for me, wanted to do a decent session as track is cancelled tonight but no chance, so off to the treadmill later, first time in an age, I shall think of you for inspiration JF. Good luck today MC. Indiegirl, I agree with PSC, if you want to do another run find yourself somewhere nice and undulating off road, with a few hills you might have to walk to slow things down a bit. John, big commitment to the marathon! Birky, hope the dog hotel is going well. Blood test and carpet shopping today, probably not the most exciting day of my garden leave.

7 miler offroad this morning, long run for me - lovely snowy sunrise over the river, kept it slow and so hoping I'll be able to get back out tomorrow. Thanks for the wise words KateF, hope the ironman training is enjoyable.

to run or not to run or just return to bed beaten by a bit of snow and ice and wait for the horrible stuff to disappear.

Valis, ouch that is early. No more snow here but no run either, it feels very odd but I'm sure I'll get used to it, and when I'm back at work I'll have to swim early. Pleased with myself for swimming 2K last night, but technique was pretty awful, so drills today, with a body pump and spin class as well. Happy hump day all, we must get the race list going so we can imagine what the world will be like without snow and ice.

Morning you lot

Dog walking again in snow. 'Ovett' is not chuffed at me not running

LNW (Labrador Nature Watch): Snow falling, 1 cyclist - respect mate, 1 Royal Mail Van, 1 cat - which quickly disappeared.

morning everyone

valis - guessing you went back to bed?

no soc for me, but hopefully going to turbo a bit later, knee still sore but hoping that turbo won't upset it

I miss running outside, but not going to run this week, give my knee a bit of a chance

Morning all, still cold, still icy, still using the treadmill.  5 miles recovery run started at 5.15am, final episode of series 4 of The Wire watched, just the final series to go.

Take care, forecasts looking better round this way over the weekend so hoping all the ice will be gone, though I do have series 5 to watch

3.5m tempo for me at 6.50 with lightly falling snow before heading back to greet removals people coming to pack up stuff for my house move on Fri. Made sure yak trax and trainers weren't packed as we're predicted ice and then more snow. Slushy and cloudy here so sunrise the only time it looks really picturesque - gd SOC motivator!
All best for turbo MC. Birkmyre I love the dog's name, laughed out loud and woke my partner (but it was 8am, he deserved it).

tempo for me this morning too, but on the dreadie....  3.1 miles hard.  My legs ache now having spent all day in the office.  Must stretch later.  Day off tomorrow - woohooo

Hi everyone.

Isn't it funny how if you have a couple of days enforced rest it seems like you have not run in ages? 

The snow fall Sunday evening through to Monday morning meant there was no way I could get out, it was nowhere near clear enough Tuesday, so no SOC yesterday and I had to bring some work home last night as i had to prepare a presentation to do Quarterly briefings at work today - the first ones at 6am, so again chance to run before work, some lunchtime and more tonight for the night shift at 10 and 11 pm.  So I'll be home late tonight and have a meeting offsite tomorrow, so I'd be in very little fit state to run tomorrow to - That's potentially 4 days of no running, then I'm taking the family to Euro Disney at the weekend until Wednesday, so all of a sudden I'm in a panic thinking I'm going to lose all my fitness, right in the middle of my training for Reading Half!

indie: 'Ovett' is the nickname I gave to the owl I see every morning. My dogs name is Geordie

23/01/2013 at 20:34

Martin, just look at it as your cut back week, still plenty of time before Reading.

23/01/2013 at 20:37

Evening Kate

valis; That was an early start today !

23/01/2013 at 21:41

evening all,

another covering of snow this morning made the trails across hankley common slightly less hazardous and slippy... heard some automatic fire coming from the across the hill so assume the  army were out there training in the snow - first evidence of their prescence since before christmas. other than that we had the place to ourselves. lots of deer and fox tracks in the snow though

kate - will you be doing the spring ballbuster as part of your ironman training?

23/01/2013 at 22:02
Birkmyre: Best name in the world (I'm from the Toon). I'm only posting to get myself in the mood to run tomorrow as feeling bit tired in the legs and the weather's turgid here: slush, ice, mud...going to do 5 miles tomorrow tho, iv said it now.
24/01/2013 at 08:07

morning all

nothing yet today but will be swimming later

24/01/2013 at 08:39


Day off work today. But 45mins brisk walk with the two Black Labs.

24/01/2013 at 08:41

indie: Oh right,re Geordie I suppose it is to you. I'm sitting here thinking so indie was a big Ovett fan then ?

another one with a day off here....

So far it's been a dream... 2 hour lie in.  Just logging in for a few hours to complete some notes that I have been struggling with for a week, but doing it at my pace with Eric Clapton blaring out of the speakers and a big mug of tea in front of me - can't do that at work!!

I am going to turbo later (bike) as I have just realised that I am only 4 weeks away from my first sportiff of the season, and it isn't called Hell of The Ashdown for nothing.  It's a lumpy unforgiving and tough 80 mile route.... which will be even tougher if I don't do a modicum of preparation!  

Physio later too.... it's all go here I tell you!
