Hello all

Tracey - well done on you 14 miles

TopSec - great to see you back out there, well done

I did 16 miles yesterday 3hour 7 mins, walked a few times really struggled.  few niggles appearing with increased mileage, hopefully will not develop into anything too bad!

Just 12 miles planned for me today. Going to start increasing my Sunday run now. 5th week of 5 runs a week just being completed!

Wow. I came on to see if the thread was still going! I've not posted for three years

Well done all. I'm up to 8 miles now and ticking along nicely. Thankfully my hip was OK after falling off my bike so looking forward to next week's 10 miles.

TS - well done on your half. Keep up with your running and you will knock a chunk of that half time.


MWW - please be careful. My legs are tight after Sunday's 8 miles in 1:22. So I'm rolling and stretching for England.


How did you 12 miles go Paul?


leeee - well done on your 8 miles. 


Katypie - how are you and bump?

Took two hours thanks. Carried a litre of water in a small backpack to start getting used to some weight. 

Did a two lap route round footpaths and small lanes. Second was with my head torch on.

Nice to see you KP and TS

Some good running going on

Interesting that you do laps, Paul. I have a phobia of laps, they mess with my mind and make me upset! I'm much better running in a straight line, turning round at half way, and running back again!

28/01/2014 at 20:21

I very rarely do laps. Try to find one circuit or more often do there and back like you. However, just fancied it, and as a slowish run was fine. Might do it again.

Been back out a few times since my half, I can do faster speed, just need to get my act together and do it.  Need to organise myself a few races so I keep at it, otherwise it tails off again and I end up doing more cycling.  May do another half in a couple of weeks, see if I can knock some time off.

Good to see you again KP, been faaaaaar too long since we've seen you.

How's your running going Cinders?

Hello Paul and Leee

Not been on for a bit

Hello people I've not seen before

And hello everyone else Nice to see you again KP

Training for Brighton and London under way. I am still very slow though. I'm still carrying extra weight that doesn't seem to want to come off. That's quite hard on my knees. I did 10m on Sunday and will be out doing 12m this weekend. It's going to be a case of plugging in my music and slogging it out lol!

Hi Roobarb.

I'm very slow too - did 8m in 1:30 at the weekend. 10m this weekend is on the cards. I too am carryign extra timber. At least 4 stone of it.  I've lost 9lbs in last 3 weeks though so it's something I'm definitely working at.

Does anyone else look forward to/enjoy the long weekend runs a lot more than the shorter midweek runs? I really struggle with the midweek runs - think it's because I'm tired after work etc and it's cold and dark, wheras the weekends are generally light and have more time around the runs.

31/01/2014 at 07:36

Urgh. Running in the morning before breakfast is HARD! I did eat a banana before hand. Struggling a little to get my 5 runs in this week so had to go out this morning.

Yes, I prefer the long weekend run!

01/02/2014 at 18:36

10m run this morning. Woudn't say I enjoyed it, but I enjoyed finishing it and it was a perfect day for it.

06/02/2014 at 06:12

Hello all

Some great running going on!

I am up to 17 miles for LSR, but going to struggle to get the long runs in for a few weeks as my husband is going to be away quite a lot from next weekend! Decided to drop Brighton and just do London, not because of the running but because of family. Taking two weekends away in a row will be too difficult!

06/02/2014 at 20:11

MWW - maybe I will see you at London Marathon. Bernard is running it after getting injured training for it last year.

Ran 16 miles in wind and rain today in 3:03:42

06/02/2014 at 22:01

Well done with these long runs. I have a 16 miler lined up for Saturday.

Interval work in the rain this evening. 1 mile jog with striders, 10 times 400 with 200 recovery and 1 mile jog to finish. Was hard, but glad I did it. My interval pace is getting faster. Yay.

15/02/2014 at 13:34

Only 8 weeks to go til VLM. 13.1 miles done ths morning in 2:28. Training not going to plan but hoping I can do just about enough to get round in sub 5 hours. PLEASE!

15/02/2014 at 20:35
Was it a race this morning Lee?
15/02/2014 at 21:34

No Paul, just a run round York unfortunately.
