Hey Pottermiss..I see you're in Manchester. Look out for me, I'm the cool, good looking one...there's not many of us up here.
11mi ran this lunchtime. Still feel a bit weak, but made it round like the brave little soldier I am.
AG, look after that shin.
AG, ouch! Keep stretching, and maybe gentle self-massage of the calf muscle with soap in a nice warm bath? After my sports massage to get over the heel injury I wasn't allowed to run for 4 days, I think he said to give the muscles a chance to fully relax.
Chick super paced 15 miler..and you deserve that pizza,
JF50 i think I know what you mean..I am chuffed to get it out the way , but the house work still needs to be done..
15W ah bless well done nice run would you like a sticker ?
I ran just over 5 miles first then did the intervals then did 1 mile cool down
6 x 600s @5K pace just about managed to hit 7 min miling towards the end but too windy but couldnt face the treadmill90 secs jog recs.managed to find fairly flat bit just less than 600m so had to keep turning around mid sprint to make the distance up which also didnt help...got some weird looks from dog walkers in the park as I kept charging up and down the same stretch of road....oh well I am known locally as that mad woman always out running...whatever
.for all the splits/pace/times whores..So thats me Ten and Heow..
2.40 (7.12) WAKE UP LEGS !!2.402.382.362.372.36 (7.02) nearly...better luck next time
Good pace NN. Bitter cold wind here today, so I don't envy your run!

It's only a matter of time before your reputation expands beyond the local boundaries
Good splits NN, I like a good stat as well though not been called a whore before! HeOw has originated far too much in the short time we have all been together on here.
I did mine on country roads this morning and although there weren't many cars I think I picked up pace as they approached and checked running form as they passed with the hope they might mention that "quick old guy" I saw on the road this morning
JF50 there are lots of young guys that would eat your dust I am sure !! talking of quick old people..I got voucher in the post this morning for being 3rd old biddy in my race on Sunday..pleased with that as it was largish field over 600..don't know how any were old biddies though..
And Ten, yes it is bloody freezing...AGAIN !! I am glad I didnt leave the sessiojn till club tonight as it would have been even worse out on the track, it sees a bit of a wind tunnel in there at the best of times.
Hey NN - congrats!
Chick, I'm properly jealous of your pizza right now, and almost caved in and ordered one, but have heroically resisted.
Just a quick 5.5 mile run with the club tonight, as I did my VO2 intervals yesterday and am easing off in preparation for Sunday. I did have an awkward wardrobe malfunction a couple of miles in, though, when my right bra strap came unhooked. Lucky I've only got small tits, as I announced inappropriately to assembled male clubmates. They did offer to give me a hand, but I decided on balance that it was better to just wait until I got home.
NN, congrats on being 3rd old biddy .
LOL..big tits would just get in the way..
Is this the right time to mention that I saw a pair of Great Tits on my run a couple of days ago? Fact.
Did they get in your way?
No, they were in a tree.
It was a bit of role reversal. The first time I've been stared at by a pair of tits.
Well I saw some BLUE tits AFTER my run today..mine !! it was flipping freezing !!!
Did 9 mile warm up at 7.23 pace followed by 8 by 800m with 90s rest in between each. Was tough.
2.53; 2.53.9; 2.55; 2.57.3;2.52.4; 2.55.9. Last one would have been faster but had to dodge a car.
Was freezing outside, 2 degrees but felt like -3 with wind chill.
How come you lot had 800s ? mine was 600s must be a change in the 2nd edition..
I was just wondering that as I have the first edition too. I didn't mind, though!
Phew I thought I was going to have to pop out and run 6 x 200s
