Good news on the injury Teknik! Hope the knees are better AM and Spark.

NP lots of good running, nice long run in the rain.

Hope the plane trip is not too bumpy for the girls OH!

Nice doubles going on! 7.5 miles with the group last night, a few hills then a bit of a blast at the end. Icy and foggy but fun, nice to have company for a change! Then weights session afterwards. This morning 4.5 miles recovery and 6 miles tonight with 5 at 7:26mm pace.

Good to hear the cough is going HM4. I hope kaz is ok.

Tomorrow will be a bit of a write off for running but may get a few miles done first thing.

Great double Fiona and nice pace.

Jason well done in getting out and nice splits

First 6 mile run done this morning in the heavy rain thats 5 pairs of wet trainers/fell shoes on the go now.

OH - I hope your daughters got home ok. Quick question, if you don't mind?? How long does anti-biotics take to get out of your system?? I finished my course a week ago but still feeling pretty of beat?? I know that its probably the after effects of being ill but??

Great running Fiona.

NP - hows the arm? How many pairs of trainers do you have??

The inner wimp in me has surfaced and I did treadmill  today instead of going outdoors - Don't think I'd be able to run in this wind anyway! 10 miles. I find it really hard to get into a natural stride on the thing?? Ended up at 11km@ 3% incline. Starting to build again........26 miles  this week so far.

Kaz1 well done on the treadmill, sorry cant help with the anti-biotics question but I thought a week or so at the most. 1 pair of spikes never worn yet, 1 pair fell shoes, 2 pair of flats, six pair of trainers with two pair near the end of there running life. I buy my trainers 2 pair at a time and wont be due new ones till the new year......But thats nothing compared to the shoes my OH has, I have lost count on the boxes that are piled high lol...........It's her hobby so I support her in the shoe, handbags and makeup  hobby and I run ....

20/12/2012 at 14:03

20/12/2012 at 14:08
Lol love heels and boots
20/12/2012 at 14:12
Got me checking now! 2 pairs trainers, Santa's bringing new ones which I need quite urgently... 2 pairs marathon flats, 1 pair flats for shorter stuff, 1 pair trail shoes, 1 pair fell shoes, 1 pair XC spikes. Biggest problem with marathon training is needing new trainers every 5 weeks!
5m recovery this morning, 6 ish planned for later
20/12/2012 at 18:09

LOL at you guys with the shoes.  I don't have any running shoes which are still in the box unused.

20/12/2012 at 18:21

NP nice running.  Saw the Fizz yesterday - she moved the goalposts again re starting back, but I think I'm ok to run now.  Lol at the youtube clip

HM hope you shake the cough

Fiona thanks - nice running.  Hope the run goes well tonight

Jason nice pace yesterday, and well done for another double today

Kaz well done on the treddie 10m


5m easy this morning.  HR still off the scale...

Two nice runs today for me Had to take a taxi to weans nursery this morning so a nice early 2 mile easy jog home, Knees felt fine, no niggles atall. Went to go for a steady 4 miles tonight, felt great after the first half mile so picked up the pace and finished in 28 mins with a strong finish. Didn't feel pushed and the 4 came in easy enough.

What: 2 miles easy and 4 miles steady @7min/mile
Next: tomorrow morning 4 miles easy
Total: 20miles.

Second 6 mile run done and it's still wet outside

Spark well done on the runs glad the knees are ok.

Tekniklus the HR will come back down again, glad you liked the video

Glad to hear you are on the mend kaz.

How many doubles is that this week NP? I am so creaky in the mornings that even a slow pace feels fast. I don't have a problem with the early start but my legs do! I can't believe I used to do all my running early.

4 miles for me this morning and a rest day tomorrow.

Think I need some new shoes as all of mine other than the Fastwitches ar over 500 miles and a couple almost 1,000. I retired them then started to wear them again after thinking this mileage thing was a conspiracy by the manufacturers!



20/12/2012 at 22:00
Many miles do you lot get out a pair? Iv got a pair of ghost 4s and a pair of asics gels when the ghosts are wet. Could be doing with a pair solely for LSRs.
20/12/2012 at 22:03
500 miles then bin or used for around the garden.
20/12/2012 at 22:04
Fiona swim and run Monday two runs Tuesday and Thursday swim and run Friday well done on your doubles.
20/12/2012 at 22:06

500m for me too as ball park figure

Interesting day today for me.... 5.03m recovery run this morning. 5.49m recovery run this evening, followed by a 2.63m fancy dress run with club. I was the Spirit of Christmas yet To Come. Blooming hot running in a hooded cloak and a balaclava!

21/12/2012 at 11:16
Was the Christmas to come a good one?
50x25 m working the legs hard doing kicking drills, I will do an easy 6 mile this afternoon.
