Glad to see you didn't let Christmas get in the way of training!!
I actually managed to get out at 4am for 5 miles(after telling the youngest to get back to bed as she wanted to get big sis up so she could open her pressies!), but the second run was replaced with walking the dog. Off for a brisk walk with dog now, then 7 miles before boxing day dinner with BF's children, so really a repeat of yesterday dinner since they are over.
Got an extreme weather running jacket from BF, guess what its mild outside!!
NN welcome - great running over Xmas
F - great early run yesterday. Hope you're felling better.
MG well done on the 9m
NP great intervals yesterday
Kaz- 4am! . Good luck for today's 7m
3.5m yesterday in the pouring rain, then 8m this morning in the sunshine. Knee appears to be ok for now, HR still crap.
Nice Xmas running MG1 and NP another quality double!
Hope the MLRs go well NP and NN. 4 miles recovery this morning, sunny and bright.
kaz I suspect you'll be able to use it later - we never get consistent weather up here in one day!
Teknik good news on the knee and the HR will follow, must be your body fighting off all the Xmas germs! I am feeling a lot better thanks. On the chocolate gauge of 'wellness' I had a Quality Street yesterday out of duty and actually wanted a toffee one after breakfast today (although one was enough) but a definite improvement! Planning to head out later for a fartlek but off to stretch now....

Um it has !! feeling fat and sluggish today and we still have New Year to get out of the way I think we should either move VLM a few weeks back OR move Christmas a few weeks forward .Whose idea was it to follow a P&D schedule ?? oh yeah...mine.
Mid week medium long run done 12 miles in 1.55, stuffed tired and very slightly hungover only had 3 glasses of wine yesterday but that is all it takes for me
Tek take care of that knee
Fiona seems you are luckier with the weather than I am I got drenched ...AGAIN !!
Well done on everyones training.
Yesterdays excercise consisted of crutch hobble to my sis in laws table from Mrs YCs parked car.Then spent the next five hours lifting a wine glass and budweiser bottle to my lips.
Today a 1.1 mile hobble to the paper shop and back.
All good for the aerobic development and subsequent sub 4 mara attempt next autumn
YC that 1.1 miles must be a killer on crutches.
Not surprised the legs were a bit creaky jason!
NP nice MLR.
NN I'm a bit of a lightweight with alcohol too, nothing yet this week but may have some bubbles tonight!
7.2m fartlek this afternoon. Went an undulating route so fast on the uphills and jogged downhill then just head down and steady on the long slow hill at the end. Working on breathing and arm swing and think that both helped - it just needs to become a habit now.
Well done for getting out today FC NP JSN Tek NN KazNo running for me since Christmas Eve.
Yesterday is a sacrosanct family day but weather remained good today so had short kayak (4miles) while weather lasts. Bright sun on mostly calm seas.More gales forecast for Friday (which may affect travel for daughters again). Not sure if 6pm JS group run will happen tomorrow as a lot of folk (not me) are free through the day YC plenty of room for improvement then
Happy days! 8 miles in hail showers this afternoon - You were right Fiona!!! Jacket very cosy.
BF also got me kettlebells so they are going to get tried out tomorrow am, before a run later in the day after work.
I think BF has finally accepted this running lark!!!
YC - Crutches......so hard!! My daughter soon learned to manage them and get pretty fast but the blisters on her hands were so bad....
OH - More gales..........
Good news about BF .
Was going to get out today (back to work tomorrow). However it's rained solidly all day today
Fiona,Kaz,OH - Being honest the 1.1 miles on the crutches wasnt the easiest thing ive done.
Ive decided that rather than go stir crazy cooped up at home for six weeks off work and no driving at all,i would rather try and do a little excercise every day.So the plan is hobble to the shop and back in the morning and do some core work in the afternoon.Mrs Yc got me a new medicine ball for xmas and ive already been trying out some seated excercises that i can do with it along with some dumbell work.
Dosent replace the cardio buzz from a run but it will have to do in the meantime.Rather that than watch Homes under the hammer ,Jeremy Kyle etc
Alloa half mararthon in middle of March where i hoped to get a new pb has been shelved with me just focusing on recovery and then when im fully mobile again hit the bike in the gym for a few weeks and then take it from there.Im confident of making a full recovery from this and be back running again in 10 weeks time
Fiona.. I sorry only recently joined the thread so would like to ask how often do you run twice a day ? seems a few on here do that .
YC there is nothing wrong with a bit of daytime telly.. I convince myself of that quite often on my days off work.
NP re aqua running ,i take it theres no impact on the foot when im doing this excercise?
Night Nurse- i think im going to have to get used to whatever crap is on tv during the day.
Im keeping my spirits up and if ive had an injury in the past then i tend too stay away from the forums as it got a wee bit depressing knowing that i couldnt run.But this thread has been great for me in the past year and i would miss popping in from time to time to see how everyones doing
NP my schedule does have a couple of doubles a bit later on but I cant decide whether or not to try it maybe I will, I wondered how much difference it would actually make. I can see how much difference it made to Nell wow !! but she is another league altogether
YC excuse me but Jezza is not crap.
Hope the injury improves soon
