Howard - I really hope you can back to some sort of form. It's been far too long and I can't begin to imagine how frustrating it must be. I get all out of sorts if I get a cold that stops me running. I have been lucky in the 7 (nearly 8) years I've been running that any injury seems to have been avoided. Fingers - and everything else - crossed!

Pilates - now there is something I'd like to try. Just wish someone would set up a Men Only Pilates Group. I just know that if I went along to a class near here I would be surrounded by 60+ year old ladies.... I get enough of that in the rest of my life 

Lovely 8 miles tonight that just seemed to flow... something's working at the moment. Mrs Flower cautiously asked if I was "training for something"... I think she thinks I'm doing London but haven't told her... as if!

Ikle - nice running... and good to be pain free... long may it continue

Come to Pilates at our local gym .. Go most Mondays and big mixture of men and women, old and young, Gordon even comes quite a lot, I think it's really really good, got a very practical, straightforward male teacher .. Def helps with my Corrrrrr ... Strength, been going over a year now.

On another note watch out for an PR tomorrow in London, local news that sort of thing see if you see any flash mobs of SQUIRRELS promoting the Royal Parks half ... See if you recognise any of the squirrels .... Ahem ....

Howard your comment about running 2 miles in two minutes plus Susan's reply really made me laugh.

Hey Dave I go to Pilates! I resemble that post

LSR done today 14.5 in 2hrs 15

LO65 - yes I thought of you as I wrote it! Nice run BTW 

Trouble is I don't have a great deal of spare time in my life as it is... for pilates or much else really...

Awesome run LO 65
27/01/2013 at 23:08

Two miles in 20 minutes !!!!

27/01/2013 at 23:09

Susan if you are serious could you email the details of your pilates class please.

27/01/2013 at 23:20

hi all

dave, same here with the running, it feels better than it has for a few years, its nice and its odd!

howard I feel your pain, but the bigger picture is to get back, the speed you had can come back.  You have been so strong throughout, hope it all starts to get better for you.

did 2 miles myself today as a recovery, it took me 20 mins actually! felt the effects of yesterdays 10 miler

ikle nice 13.1 miler! you have bounced back, its great to see!

Ikle, lovely to see you running well.. 6.3 hilly miles and then 13 ? Did you do park run as well? TRS working! Yay.

Scott in print and running well too! 1:45 definitely possible after Chester.

Howard - even more lovely to see you running than Ikle.
I with Martin on taking it slowly though.. go to every other day over 3-6 weeks,  maybe mix something else in, swimming, gym or the already mentioned pilates or yoga. Core & gym work definitely helps me stay injury free, and did a slow build up recovering from my injury. Also went to those nearly all women gym classes that DtF avoids - they work.

LO65 - very speedy long run.

Secret Squirrel (I mean) Susan, good run by you.

Resting legs, only 3 x 5 miles the last 7 days, with 3 circuits. Getting nervous about the ultra on Saturday. Silly really. Knees were sore Friday suddenly but seem to have loosened up, (new model Sauconys too tough on feet maybe, old model ordered).

Can't remember if anyone is along the route from Iffley through Abingdon to Henley, but a high five and hug would be happily offered.

FRC- You will be fine, just take it very slowly at the start and then get slower! Best tip I was given for Comrades and it was right! Hope its not to muddy/flooded

28/01/2013 at 11:27
My brother the serious marathon runner in our family always says to me "start slow and fade " good advice

Very glad to be back in the warm and NOT with a bloody latex squirrel head on that you can nearly see out of or breath in! Horrible! As was leaving home at 5.45 am to go int town for the squirrel flash mob! Good to wave at bemused commuters though but quite cold by the end. Will show you pics when they send them ... Have tweeted one of me in the pr Company office and on FB

HOWARD class is 10 am Mondays at Willesden sports centre. Not sure how much if you are not member but not a lot. Maybe 4 quid? Check the Harpers fitness website .. Willesden branch. It's just down the road from my gaff. Will be there next Monday.

Thanks Susan - may well give it a go!

After my speedy long run the next day it took me 50 minutes to run 4 miles.

Susan I like the "start slow and get slower"

Another 2 miler done. So far the old body is holding up. Fingers crossed.

29/01/2013 at 19:05
