Good work James and Ricky. It's pretty windy out there. I thought it best to have a couple of ales given conditions (it is a rest day after all)...,!

Was very windy out there tonight. At one point when running straight into a very strong headwind it felt as if I was not moving forward. Tempo run done for thsi week. Not sure which I hate more. Slushy underfoot conditions or strong blustery wind with rain driving into my face

Just call it hydration Will

Carl what you hate more than snow, ice, wind & rain is not getting out at all & missing a run!

30/01/2013 at 00:23

Ricky - you are spot on.

I wonder if we will moan about the weather when it warms up a bit, we certainly will when it gets too hot ! At least we have all got out and done it, we'll done. Nice hydration session Will , I might have to introduce one of those

Don't tell Carter, but it's another rest day for me it's my excuse to eat cake, and a reason to run tomorrow!

Happy 57th Rachel
Have a slice of cake and a glass of wine for me !

Ha ha Carter!!! 57 is a fair way off thank you!! Mind you, at least then I'll be in a slower age category!!

Happy birthday Rachel, enjoy yourself.

A very windy set of intervals for me today. It seemed like every one was into a gale. It should even out if I do the same routes, but it never seems to!

Happy Birthday Rachel - another year nearer the pension!

Hill session for me tonight - dry & little wind which made a change.

Was feeling rotten all day and my cold has become a little chesty - was close to binning tonights session. Went out anyway and did it at a slightly lower intensity... actually felt much better when I got back in so glad I pushed on with it.
7 miler tomorrow night.

Dave, tell me about it, I was nearly running backwards due to the gales on my lunchtime intervals!

Happy birthday Rachel.

Well done everyone for getting out. I got home from work at 9pm tonight and after saying goodnight to the wee ones went out for an 8.5MLR. I must be mad.

Just what I was thinking, Carl

If it was me I'd go to bed and get up early to fit that it, but I think we've already established you're a night owl.  If that nighttime ironman wasn't for you, how about the Midnight Sun marathon in Norway?

Night owl also here - during the week early runs fill me with dread ... Wkend LSR I have no problem setting the alarm for though.

As bannantyne Wud say - I'm ooot. Well for a few days at least.

Now coughin phlegm and been advised to rest. V frustratin to go off schedule in only 5th week grrrrrr.

Gonna rest until sun and do LSR if things have cleared up. Maybe that's the wrong approach - thoughts?

Ricky no point un-doing your good work best to rest, had same issues last year tried to ignore but it put me back a good few weeks, don't overdo the weekend run its tempting to chase the miles but you need to make sure you feel strong
Six miles at 8.46 with a mile warm up and cool down on top making a good 8 mile run in the wind tonight

Good advice from Dd there Ricky.  Obviously rest now, and don't try anything too long on Sunday if there's any sign of it left.  Emphasis on the S of LSR, and don't go out if you're going to spend three hours cold and wet.  You can set yourself back if you try too much too soon after illness.

This is meant to be a picture of a night owl but I cannot work out how to copy the image into this text box.

15 miles today, Folkesworth 15 next week, then Bramley 20 week after, if I don't go sub 4 this time I'll cry...

Nice one Simon.

Did a tempo before work yday, 5 miles at 7'58 pace and 2 easy miles. I like doing my lsr early doors but the tempo before work really hurts!

20 miler tomorrow, first one ever, wish me luck!

Did my long run yesterday, 20 miles, dry, no wind, what's not to like?

You might need a recovery week after Bramley Simon! You'll have a good idea of the shape you're in, that's for sure.

Oh, ,and good luck Will!
