Ooooo, exciting. I hope Mr by eck doesnt get stuck in London

I have a running question (does anyone remember that word?)
There is a new running group being set up where we live. It's aimed at new runners and uses a local field I often do some work on. There are 3 different distances they are marking -1km, 1.5km and 2.25km. The group runs once a month but the markers will be staying up (its not difficult anyway). I thought it would be a good way of encouraging Mr by eck and little miss to join me. My question is - what distance do I pick. Miss by eck can run 5km with encouragement snd a little walking support in 35 minutes. I know I will need to pace them both so tips on that would be appreciated

go for the kill-2.25km

Flying visit...a light dusting of snow in Sussex nothing to cause problems.

byeck-Yes 2.25 k which is a managable 1.5 miles.

Achey after yesterday so resting. Run tomorrow morning.

Bye for now.

No snow here Loula!


14/01/2013 at 13:27

ooo i thought you had some last week

14/01/2013 at 13:28

We did but it's long gone.

14/01/2013 at 14:20

Awwwwww did I miss the crumpets and Hot Choc.

Lots of snow this morning but its all slushy now. Made walking to work very difficult and I ended up being a bit late.

By Eck, I agree with the others to go for the biggest one.

No snow in Dubai....but it's windy.  Did an hour on the bike and it was VERY hard work.  Glad you are on the mend Chili.

lots of snow here, roads are awful but I am home now and not moving till tomorrow!

by eck - go for the 2.25k, maybe miss by eck can see if she can beat her dad?

Louise, do you cycle outside? or in a gym?

We had over 2hrs of snow and girls are playing in it but it is already melting away.

14/01/2013 at 19:08

I ran.

Not entirely ache-free but not too bad.  Did about two and a half miles.  New experience running while snow was falling.

well done RR

my knee is feeling good today so no bad effects from yesterday's 7 miler

not going to risk running in the ice/snow tomorrow and going to turbo instead in the morning and hopefully be able to get on a treadmill in the gym tomorrow. Really can't risk falling on the ice!

14/01/2013 at 19:18

Yeah, I won't be going out there if there's actually snow on the ground - first off, my shoes aren't designed for that weather and secondly, my knee wouldn't like a collision with icy concrete.

Might reintroduce HIIT tomorrow on the exercise bike.

RR - if you fancy some hard cycing training for the exercise bike you could try these:


they are downloads, not too expensive and I am a little addicted to them!

14/01/2013 at 19:38

Interesting, might check 'em out.

Well, the English course I went to is desperate for a teacher but it's right on the other side of the city so I think it's not worth travelling there just for an hour's lesson - half my pay would go on petrol.  They seemed really nice though so I'm gonna keep in contact for when/if I give up working in schools and maybe I could get some longer hours there.

Don't take any risks in the snow, guys! Have a good evening. xx

Mornin' all.

Chili, I cycle outside at a cycle track - want to do that while I am still here in Dubai with reliable weather.  When I move to London 'spect I'll be doing a spinning class or similar (and have to convert from kilometres to miles...).  It's mainly recreation / cross-training for me, I'm scared of cleats and cars

Well done RR and mathschick for getting out in the snow, knees and all! 

I am due a 9k run on jogging track this evening.  Still doing the icing and physio strengthening exercises, which are really paying off.  I expect rock hard hamstrings and peroneals.  Might be a bit scary .

ice is terrible here today so it will be the gym for me later

take everyone
