apologies for lack of caps due to laptop keyboard faults
you are getting back into more running again now, good sign.
you have a busy life, maybe you need some spare time to resume running
and bring back your mojo
i have less mileage than yours. most weeks it is around 16 or 17 miles.
membership of our club is 15 pounds per year.
run of the mill stuff yesterday and a run up a steep hill too
12.20, 10.48, 10.34, 10.41, 12.58 ski-slope 1 in 5 , 10.53
6.03 miles in all.
expensive time with elantra car right now. one of the alloy wheels is badly corroded.for several weeks the tyre pressure kept going down and needed pumping up every few days. my garage manager has suggested replacing all wheels with steel rather than alloy. might be best idea in long run.
again sorry about lack of capital letters, shall have to use desktop next time.
Good Morning all, Hi ImpeyCars can be so expensive can't they. What a worry for you to have to replace all the wheels. Just keep running to counteract the stress. Cor your ski-slope hill sounds a beast.
K2How much does it cost for a new mojo? I think you need one asap. busbarHow far away is your Club, is it too far to run to before a track session then try and cadge a lift home?
I ran on pavements this morning just for a change. I ran for 7 miles in 63.50 mins, av pace 8.59mm, av HR 120, MHR 135. Lots of down followed by lots of up
5.10M; 1:04:04.6; 12:34/M;1 - 12:37.7 - 1.00 - 12:382 - 12:37.6 - 1.00 - 12:383 - 12:49.1 - 1.00 - 12:494 - 12:44.8 - 1.00 - 12:455 - 12:19.6 - 1.00 - 12:206 - 0:55.9 - 0.10 - 9:097°C
Foggy, but not like the peasoupers we used to have in my youth.
I used to have youth, but now I'm just youthless.
Sorry about that. I wrote it about 7:30am and forgot to click "submit", so I found it still lurking just now.
awsThat run is pretty much the same as your last one, very steady running.
Impey, cars eh? You never quite know whether there's a big bill lurking.
ceal, you're doing some consistent running.
Quite pleased with my time on Tuesday in the 3.6 mile handicap. 23m 54s, which was 17 seconds quicker than last month. Average pace 6:38. This time there was quite a strong headwind on the outward leg. Still 30 seconds away from my course PB (this time last year) but there are signs I'm nearly back to where I was then.
Thanks for the feedback about club fees. It's obvious they vary widely. Ours seem to be towards the cheaper end.
Had some positive feedback about my support team application from a friend of the bloke who's running across Australia next year, so that's encouraging.
Graham Good going keep at it
Have run twice this week 3 miles and 4.3 miles planned on today but busy. But have walked about 8 miles cyled 2 - well nearly 4 if you include this morns commute home
Taken bike to shop it needs a service but something up with front gear it'll be ok
Then to ing and froing went to town twice hence the 8 miles could have been more but bike shop closed at 5.30
'loDidn't run today. Spent a long time at the local Merc dealer trying to swap the C220 that MrsJJ drives for a more modern one.Don't I just love screwing another few £s out of car dealers GrahamThat was an impressive run. 6:38 miling for any distance is good in my book.CealTwo consecutive longish runs is very interesting - mysterious even.What's the hidden agenda?ImpeyDoes the £15 include the EA levy? If so, the subs themselves are ridiculously cheap.JJ
JJnice pastime that - nothing beats saying - "well if that's the best you can do I shall have to leave it there" and getting up to go.......................
Impeyon the car theme there is a lot to be said for steel wheels - particulalry if one's car is sometimes driven by another person who parks by feeling kerbs. My alloys look rather scruffedBig hill that, you should try doing it twice
Grahamexcellent pace there - good goingis that "run geordie run" by any chance?
Traceysounds like your hamstring needs a good pummelling to get rid of any scar tissue - listen to nurse Ceal!!
Mick6good to see you kicking up the miles with little discomfort.I put it down to body conditioning - legs much stronger - and less weight being carried. My Adizeros save me 200 grammes every stride!!
awsthe fog must have got to your brain!! That was a very steady pace from you
CealYou ran 9+ miles because you can - good feeling to have - and to be able to do it!!I certainly recognise some of those names from long ago, and some more recent.
I have been laid up with the dreaded winter vomiting virus brought into the household by my daughter passing it onto Mrs TS who kindly shared it with meTwo days of nil by mouth should have pushed a few more pounds off but I feel pretty weak and have a rush project to get sorted out..........................
Ceal - no its not quite that far lol
Cycled to bike shop somehow little over 2 mileswalked into town to buy a few bits 0.65 milesWalke home 2.29 miles
got in letter from council expected but wanted to check on a few things so walked back to town and back. 5.7 miles
While out had call from shop they needed the key to remove the wheel but i had swapped bags key at home had planned on going there when i got home again not enough time
I slept well but didn't run yesterday
I ran today to and from bike shop with slight detour each way 7.01 miles

TS, yes, rungeordierun. I see him around from time to time as he runs the occasional local race. Commiserations with that blinking virus. I know how bad it can make you feel as I caught it in Tenerife a couple of years ago. Hope you feel better soon.
Pammie, you have a very busy life! It can't always be easy to fit running in but you do very well.
Sneaked today's run up to 5 miles. All off road so quite muddy and lots of gates/stiles to negotiate so the pace was a bit slow at between 12 and 13 minute miling. I bet my shoes weighed about 1/2 a kilo each so it's good strength training.Chairing the gardening association's annual general meeting this evening.PammieYou've clearly been zooming round like a dervish. I couldn't keep pace.TSYet another problem! You deserve a change of luck.JJ
Good solid runs Ceal and Pammie.
Graham - must feel nice to be able to run that fast!
Torque Steer - sorry to hear you have been sick, just as you were getting back into it.
I haven't done any running this week, as I have been looking after my 3 year old gdaughter as my daughter and 13 year old gdaughter have been at schoold camp.
Very full-on, and 15 year old gdaughter was sitting exams, so there was dropping off and picking up to do in between other stuff including Mae who wanted attention too.
JJ My club is £12.50 at the mo that inclues the EA levy however its going up to £10 levy next year (more for track athletes)
Bike shop phoned Bike is ready and i'll collect him tomorrow
Pammie,Your bike is a him? How can you tell?
TS,Sorry to hear about the bug, not the sort of bug you can run with by the sound of it.Weight loss has to be a major factor in your pace improvement. I have put on 10 pounds since I started doing a lot of gym work and I am sure that is what has totally offset any gains I would have made by being much fitter. the injuries haven't helped much either. How did you lose weight?
Off for a run with a friend, down by the river again. Still warm enough to ride the bonnie there but not for much longer as it went down to -8c last night.
I hope Columba is back safe and sound by now.
