Jennie it was really scary! I saw the man yesterday on my way back from town, hes obviously a tramp and Im hoping that hes moving along, but like you say it makes you realise. When I have done a few miles I am not entirely sure I could outrun an attacker! I dont run with music or anything but still feel abit worried. Might invest in a panic alarm, suppose it cant harm! Well done on your run yesterday. I am no where near that.
Teknik - thanks for asking about the foot its still abit sore especially when Im on my feet all day at work, but not too much of a pain when running? Think I'll get it looked at by the doctor see what he says, if nothing to worry about I'll have to fit in a gait analysis.
Gobi thanks for the info there, Ive got to admit I have had mini heart attacks reading some of the mileage on here especially as im up to 8 miles at the very most!
Yesterday I had a rest day, tonight it will be a 4 mile fartlek run then out for a meal with my cycling group - cant wait for that! Tomorrows club session is speed training so it'll be my first go at proper speed work, Wish me luck lol

If you are racing in May then you have no need to be at 13 miles in December, hell I just had a go at a 1.20 half runner in my club for proudly announcing he did 16 at the weekend.
I did 18.5m then added on another 3 for good measure on Sunday.
Hi Gobi, I'm running the Edinburgh Marathon in on the 27th May and completed 13.1 in 2.19 on Sunday!! Yay, on target!! Going to be useless at speed sessions but I will attempt some. Not been running long and speed just kills me, a slow plod I can do..
Rachael - not quite sure how I managed it, especially so soon after my wee muscle injury... sheer determination I think. I am amazing myself, I only really started running at the beginning of September to aid my weight loss, but I've lost my weight now and really enjoying watching my progress!! My next goal is 15miles.... mabe not this weekend, but certainly before the 25th if my wee legs can cope!!
Tonight I will try for a wee bit faster run, with hopefully my last physio session tomorrow morning...
Keep the advice coming folks, this forum is so encouraging and very helpful!!
Well done Jennie!
Hi David. Impressive times...I'll swap the tempo and zip for anything that stops me breaking up after mile 20!
Tempo run this morning...2 x 5k with a 5 minute rest. Managed both under 23'00" so happy boy today.
Xmas is cancelled in Spoons's house wrote (see)
Probably too quickly too
Gobi- I was planning on startting to do 3 runs per week at 15m + Slowly though....
Next year I want to up my mileage and see where I get
Might be a bit premature, my posting on here, after a year out (illness). But I'm hoping to be able to do North Dorset (May) if not, New Forest in September. Unless I find something (local) early summer.
I was tapering for Luton (December 2010) when I became ill (November 2010). I started back again in August, was given some bum advice on a training programme in September and tweaked the achilles (weak legs after 10 months off). I've been doing physio and have been given the OK to start running again, so I've started building back up recently, now up to 40 / 50 mins x 3 a week.
I use HR training - suits my age and will probably follow one of the HH plans, I'm just looking to see which one would suit best.
The plan is to rebuild the base during the rest of December and see if I'm fit enough to start in January. If so, then I shall, if not, then more base-building.
Any and all advice gratefully received and acted upon.
Hello Spoons, thanks for the welcome.
Well I was comfortable doing around 40 - 50 mpwk, last year - I've been building up slowly over the last few years, so the base is there, it's just been "put on hold" while I've been stuck at home, waiting. However, I'm old enough and ugly enough to know that it pays to be sensible!
