Well done for getting out Jason hope you enjoyed the massage.

Looks like you also had a nice double and weights session Fiona, with regards to doubling up the tempo runs thats the aim at the moment the first one on the Tuesday is the main one the others I'm off pace and unable to maintain it for the full length however this will come so that I can maintain it over all four sessions but it's bloody hard work at the moment.

First of two sessions done this morning just over 6 miles

Fiona- you had better sort out that 7.26 pace too- either to 7.30 or 7.15 I thought it was cold here, but the temperature has rocketted to zero this evening Off for a plod in a bit

NP- Mainly base miles here with a bit of tempo running now and again. Speed will come later

Hello peeps

The end is in sight. Fizz says I can go back to running "once I feel no pain doing one-legged squats". So what's your address NP?

It takes all sorts.  Give me a hot sticky summer evening with a tempo run any day.

NP hope the arm eases off, you might have to stay off the rough ground for a bit, don't want to fall!!

No run for me yesterday as home from work too late - 10:45pm  I'll try to get a short run in tonight before the Xmas party. I hope the snow shifts before tomorrow's run for the car!

I don't mind cold weather training once I'm out and warmed up (dark and mist is best!)

NP glad the plaster's off and well done on the double...building well

90 minutes hot yoga, then a tentative easy 2 miles on the treddie.  Occassional complaint from the knee, but not real pain.  Will take it easy for a few days...

Micknphil hope the head feels better very little movement flexibility or strength in my wrist and its very swollen compared to to other one after near 7 weeks in plaster I knew it would be be Am shocked at how bad it is, and any movement at all is extremely painful.......
