Hi everyone. First run for me tonight since my LSR on Sunday,
Forgot to pack my shoes for working away, d'oh! Packed everything else Barr the shoes. Ill do 10 miles tomorrow and 15 on Sunday to make up for it lol.
Watch ran out of battery after 2 miles so don't know splits but felt consistent after first two miles at 7:10 min/mile.

4 miles at roughly 7:10min/mile with the mutt, she was knackered lol.

AGF Nice run enjoy the meal.

Teknik hot yoga saw this on the tv diffrent.......

SC I do MLR on Wednesday and Saturday with my long run on Sunday, the reason for the MLR on Saturday and the Long run on Sunday I belive the Long run should be done on legs that are not tired but have a few miles in them.Monday is a swim and easy run as is Friday so on a Tuesday I do some speed work doing another MLR on this day would take to long due to work but 7 in the morning and 7 on a night time works for me. With my run tomorrow I will hit 83 miles for the week this has worked for me in the past.

Nice running Spark.

Just over 5.5 miles recovery run tonight for me 10+ my hill tomorrow.

NP, thanks for the feedback, I normally have a rest day on Saturday before my Long run on Sunday but I can see the sense with your strategy,  impressive weekly mileage, double what I'm currently doing.

AGF, the legs feel good after the massage and they feel fine after the gentle plod around the town

Jason, awesome running, I doubt I could hit those paces during a mile time trial

60 minute run tonight just over 5 miles avgHR 138(73%) 44 miles for the week happy enough with that

have a cracking weekend and be safe in the icy conditions.

MLR 11 MILES in 1.40 before shift tonight

Splits not much like Jasons..but progressive at least...AVE HR 74%

Starting 70-75% finishing 75-80% ...

NN- great splits there
Stewart- good running too
Early days, but looks like we could be in for some good spring maras
11/01/2013 at 23:23

NN - Nice run

Stewart - Well done

Jason - Impressive pace, as always!

NP - Fantastic mileage for the week

Spark - Good running with the dog, I'm not surprised it was knackered after that!

Tek & AGF - Good running guys


Upper body weights for me this afternoon. I regret being lazy and not going to the gym straight after work this morning, as it was loaded. First slight disappointment of the year, after a week back training and eating better, my weight seems to have went up slightly Albeit, I didn't weigh myself at the same time as last week. So it might just be a time of the day issue, I'll be more concerned if the same happens next week.

Parkrun tomorrow, not sure if I'll race it as part of a 7.5 mile total or cycle up and do a couple of miles before and take it easy. If I take it easy I'll do a tempo run on Sunday.

SC well done on your run and mileage for the week.
NN nice running and a little progressive run looking at the splits.
SM6 race the park run as part of your run I did a 2 mile warm up, park run then a steady 5 miles after last week.

Well I've got my hill to run up, out tonight to watch Les Mis??rables, first saw the stage show in the West end last year.
12/01/2013 at 07:54
SM6- good luck with the PR
NP- enjoy your hill and Les Mis
Recovery day here off to trial run a planned new Parkrun this morning- but just bimbling around
Have a good one, everyone!
12/01/2013 at 11:19

Decided to do the 7.5 with fast(ish) parkrun. Pretty pleased to run 21.06, only 22 seconds from my pb despite overdoing the festivities. Think I'll alternate between that session, and using parkrun as a recovery run each week for the next month or 2. I'd be better doing a recovery run in my own time, but I want my 50 T-shirt ASAP

Gym in an hour or 2 to look forward to.

12/01/2013 at 12:17

Well done on the parkrun Stuart, close to the PB!

Enjoy the recovery day jason, your legs will be pleased!

NP hope you had a good night out and that the hill run goes well. Thick fog here is the lowlands but stunning up with me.

Nice 11 miles NN, great splits.

Good weekly mileage Stewart.

Teknik hope the massage helps settle the knee.

Spark not surprised the pooch was tired at that pace!

Hope you had a good night out AGF. 

20 miles for me this morning, first of the campaign! A very icy start and even my ponytail was white with frost by the end but had a great run, nice and easy and had company so just chatted for 2hr 48m av pace 8:26mm.

Spark - speedy dog run

AGF - thanks, building slowly

NP hope you had fun on your hilly 10m, and enjoy Les Mis!

jason great splits yesterday, and happy bimbling today

Stewart well done on the week's total.

NN nice 11 miler - good progressive splits

Stuart nice parkie, and enjoy the gym sesh.

Fiona well done on bagging the 20 miler - nice pace


11.7m this morning - 5 on the flat on my own at 70%, then a hilly 6.7m with the club.  Club race tomorrow as long as it's not too icy...

Fiona- Nice 20! Got my first 2mrw

SM6- well done on the Parkrun

Well our trial Parkrun was AWESOME! I was one of 20 runners on a stunning course which followed a grit path around a lake in a country park- not a PB course, but not suicidal either. Lots of really positive feedback. Best of all, the finish line was right next to the cafe which did great coffee and cakes- although I managed to avoid the cake 4m afterwards on the way home. Another easy run planned for later

19 miles this morning in the snow , sleet and rain of South Birmingham , managed 2.46 with fairly even splits appart from 11-14 miles which were slower, seemed to be plenty of runners out this morning which was good to see.
12/01/2013 at 14:01
MG1- well done. No white stuff here yet......
12/01/2013 at 14:14

SM6 Well done on the park run and speed.

Fiona great running saw the splits very nice and first 20 of the campaign mine tomorrow. 

Teknik nice running watch out for the snow tomorrow.

Jason sounds like a great course, good man for staying of the cake, our house is still coming down with stuff thats bad for you from Christmas the OH all ways buys way to much lol enjoy your run later.

MG1 Well done on the 19 miles sounds like you had it bad weather wise, just cold and damp here at the moment.

Well ran my hill and then added 2 more miles on to make it up to just over 10 miles, just hope we can get in and out of Belfast without hitting any trouble later
