 Kaz, I'm sure it's not as bad as you think - you've only got to look at all those who get into X Factor.

A few miles planned for me today, in between getting offspring off to school / college and work.

Dont mention x faxctor...im quite glad its finished now no run for me today....busy busy work day...possibly the busiest so far

I'm also good at running slowly but not always.....

Loula - he's not that scary but never underestimate the power of the dark side.....

Spoons, I think the scare scale is proportional to how much help you get from me.

I do have a jacket that says


Bringer of Pain

Got up at stupid-O'Clock to run an easy 5 miles (why is it harder to get up when it's an easier session?).

70 press-ups then off to work.

Long run tomorrow. Hope everyone's weather isn't too bad... 

Mon - drew a blank on long races in April - guess it's too close to London/Brighton/Paris etc.

Teknik- thanks for looking.  I think I will have to get through it on my own without a race

No run for me today.  Was going to run into work but realised I'd forgot to bring a coat to work the previous day so would have to go home in my office clothes and it's freezing.  The logistics of running to/ from work are a bit annoying sometimes.  It's probably for the best as have a 7.5mile xc tomorrow so rest todya will do me good.

Bring on the weekend.

Teknik - I run at 0500 most days, gets very easy.

Easy 50 mins yesterday, very slow, but comfortable.  Legs etc holding up far better than I expected and HRs nice and low.

60 mins tomorrow, then we'll see what I can manage in the next two weeks, prior to more focused training in January.

Working hard to lose the extra bit of ballast which will also help.

Hi All... 

Back into some decent running after my injury... 13.1 on Sunday 2hr 19!!  PB for me...  (had to be a PB never run that distance!!)  6 on Tuesday, 8 on Wednesday and 9 in 1hr 33 last night!!...  working 7-7 today so next run scheduled for Sunday...  not sure whether to do shorter run or try for more distance...  I will ponder on this one for the day....  hmmm...

I cant run fast unlike you hardcore runners but managing to plod along and increasing my miles...  really struggling with the thought of me being able to run a marathon but, 3 months ago I thought 5 miles was a struggle!!

Well done Jennie, you're doing great.

Long slow 13m for me this morning. That's me done for the week (29m). Feet up tomorrow...

17/12/2011 at 13:16

Thanks Teknik!!  So how slow is slow for you?  

17/12/2011 at 13:27

Hi Jennie

Well, I'm aiming (5th attempt, mind you) to break 4H so slow/easy/recovery are all done about 10 min mile pace ie MP + 60 secs.
