Minni v Dubai Dave
Brol - I've got Wokingham HM 10 Feb, and going to try a do a Parkrun every other weekend work permiting, good luck for tomorrow.
Minni - You racing the Parkrun or pacing the youngsters around?
kfc - Nothing wrong with the pace on your intervals, when I attempted F*man last year I found some of the paces very hard to hit.
Simon Sounds like a fun run and hopefully your foot is OK.
Rest day for me today and trip to Physio for monthly massage, have been foam rollering more but he still managed to inflict some pain.
Good to see people getting over niggles and back into training.
Bro - Good luck with XC tomorrow.
Anyone else racing this weekend?
Hour in the pool this morning and 1:15 planned for the bike in the morning and the same as a LSR on Sunday.
Evening all. I've resurrected an old favourite that some of you might remember. Friday night is beer and pizza night
Off to physio in the morning. If it doesn't go well there's a turbo trainer in Halfords reduced for £210 to £99......
Shins feel fine at the minute. But then they always feel OK when I'm not running. I've been wearing compression calf sleeves for 2 days solid.
Oompa - nice retail therapy
I see Furman is back... Maybe I'll try it......
Minni - all this smutty talk..... "Where's the pussy" is a line I heard loads on my nights out in Newcastle
Simon - 3.10? I'm just trying to get myself to the startline fit this year - if I'm in 3.30 shape I'll be super happy.
xpost Spoons - surely you are not tempted by the F******?
For the record, I'd much rather be able to bash out more mileage, but it seems to be the best way to train with only 3 runs a week. If the other option is not running, I know what I'm choosing!
I think whatever happens I need to get back into swimming. I'm sure I had a lot more overall fitness and strength when I swam regularly.
Sarah - that's great well done. Did you watch TV or listen to music?
i'm pissed now
FRC, great report. Well done on keeping going when it felt like it was all slipping away and pushing so hard at the end.

PS - I'm loving running just now.

It seems to be new shoes day on the forum today.
I try and foam roller after every run as I find it less painful than if I leave it for a while.
Simon, 7.5 miles seems quite a long distance to do after an injury. Is it worth doing some shorter distances to build things up gradually?
Could feel yesterdays spin in my quads today. Managed a lunchtime circuits class that was doubly 9a - both my OH and my team didn't know I was doing it since I was sitting with a different team today. Enjoyed it and I wasn't the least fit there... in fact I think the girls there seemed to do better than the boys! I'm going to try to do the circuits once a week and the spin when I can since I'm already cycling a bit so the circuits is probably a better complement. I mainly need to get over my guilt at taking a longer than usual lunch break especially as I think I worked more intensely in the morning in order to get away from my desk.

I listened to music...not a big fan of the TV. Lucky for me I had 5 new albums bought me for christmas so I got to listen to the majority of them today
I don't watch mutch TV either although I do like movies. When I had a treadmill I used to put a DVD on and run until the credits roll.
Simon - tried it and don't use it
DD - blindly that's quick!
AA - sounds dangerous.....
i'm off to physio
great news, kiwi Kfc: nice 800s - I wouldn't/couldn't do them any faster either ...FRC: 10ks planned on 27/1, 24/2, 17/3, HM on April 1 and my spring mara on April 21. DD: another pacy long run. You must feel very confident for Dubai mara!! sarah: 15 miles on the treadie?? nice gym work, Becs I did 3 x 2mile reps at around 10k pace today. Struggled in the wind & rain. It was hard work. Managed them between 13:41 and 13:50. No hip pain right now ... hope it's gone! How did the parkrunners do?
Kiwi - that's great, so pleased to hear it.
Nice reps Chick. Keep this up and you'll be flying come April.
DD - looking good for the marathon. What date is it - 21st?
Spoons - what did the physio say? And how's the hangover?
parkrun for me this morning with the family. Master Minni, Miss Minni's boyfriend (both first timers) and Mr Minni (second time). Ran with Master Minni with BF about 30 seconds ahead and hubby about 3 minutes behind! Dead proud of him, he started to by Vid-Saver" href="http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/forum/spring-marathon/sub-3h15/168846-1166.html#"tire in the second mile but kept it going. I encouraged him past a female with a huge bum - well he couldn't be beaten by that, could he? Then past another 4 in the last few hundred meters. Finished just under 28:00, I think. Dead proud of him - I almost wept! Over 400 runners at Newcastle today.
18 for me tomorrow.
