Morning all - 8.3 miles in horrendous weather, 2 OR and 2 very interesting dogs, one was using an old LP as a frisbee and the other was carrying its lead and a carrier bag in its mouth while his owner carried his poop bag! Last day of freedom today, so spin and swim lesson this morning, then into London to hand back my phone and laptop, and a glass or two of wine with my old colleagues.
I'm also toying with the idea of trying out some different shoes to help forefront running whilst I am only doing 30 or so miles a week, but need to balance this out with the injury worries.
Have a good day my fellow runners.
Morning all, weather not too bad here this morning so nothing to halt my 11 miler medium long run. 2 DW, 10 shetland ponies, Greene King delivery lorry at the Kings Head, white vans at paper shop.
MC seems like a good idea, probably most injuries come form the way we run. I wear Nike Free shoes on my treadmill which have effectively no support, still use a standard shoe for outdoor, but might try and change after I have run VLM
PSC, yes where has Birkie gone? Prefer meetings with the CEO when I have asked to see him.
Kate hope they give you a good send off.
Been away since the weekend taking the family to Disneyland, so very little running lately. I did manage to do 4 miles Friday night and 6 miles Saturday night before travelling and I'm positive we must have walked at least 7 miles each day around the parks!
Did a short 3miles of fartlek last night wehen we got home just to blow the cobwebs away, then a recovery 5 this morning, so feel back on track now (I'm so glad the cold whoet stuff has gone!)
Hope all are well
I have to admit I bottled my 6am 4miler today, preferring anther hour in bed rather than battling the wind outside!
lol Martin - I used to walk miles with/after my kids as Disneyland Paris (and I'd try to sneak the odd half hour on the treadmill in the gym in the hotel - usually at 6am!)
We very bravely left that house at 6:15 this morning during a monsoon type rain storm. Rusty wasn't too keen on going so I had to carry him into the car with the promise that the rain would clear by the time we reached our start point on Hankley Common. After all it never rains when we go running! And sure enough I was right. The rain stopped, the skies cleared and eventually the sun came out. All down to positive thinking I reckon!
Kate - good luck tomorrow.
And where's Birky?
hmmm, just had a quick 15mins on the treadmill, probably only ran about 8 mins altogether, knee twinging a bit and the other calf getting achy mind you, I did keep my shoes on but did the forefoot thing
JF - do you run forefoot striking in normal shoes?
starting to feel a bit confuddled and fed up with the whole thing
Morning all - just 4 wet miles before heading off to my new job, hope the M25 is kind. Happy Friday folks.
decided to have a rest morning, but will probably go to the gym after work
Morning all, out at 5.20am for 7 miles with 8 x 100m strides, a good wake up. Only 3 shetland ponies, milkman, 2 DWs and several people walking to work at Celotex factory.
Good luck today Kate, job will be fine I'm sure, not so certain about the M25!
MC, I think I do forefoot strike, after VLM I will go back and have a new gait analysis done and perhaps change shoes, haven't done it for several years and your gait can change over time.
Respect to you JF, I really struggle to do anything quick 1st thing in the morning - it normally takes me about 4miles or so before I even consider doing anything close to target marathon pace!
Probably had my best January, running wise, since starting this running lark - helped largely to 17 6am runs, which is probably more than I managed in total in 2012!!
I've just had a week off, niece was staying so didn't want to disturb her at SOC.Neither me or Geordie
Gonna catch up soon.
Kate: Going back to last Saturda.The 600m was a cracking race. I'd love to see what time David Rushida could run for it.
Valis: Couldn't believe that Blues threw away a 2-0 lead again on Wed night !
good to have you back birky - hope you had a good week off
off to the gym for me soon
hello everyone, dont really post here as im not a morning runner!
BUT.....i was up this morning at 5:30 out the door and doing a 6 mile pace session! couldnt believe how easy it actually is
might start doing more at this time! apart from the weather which was gale force (well....sort of) it was good, i managed sub 8mm all 6
Morning psc, maths and Jason (welcome to you)
Cold and frosty morning up here.
Morning all, welcome Jason, and welcome back Birky, doesn't seem like a week of AWOL. No SOC today, long working day instead
Morning JF: Yeah weird not being on here at SOC !
