Mamafox - I spent the day in Southend with the family so no shoe shopping yet but hope to go today some time. .

I hope to do a longish run today but at a much slower pace. Been running at about 7:40/mile and actually enjoyed it. Knees should be fine. Fingers crossed.

Well didn't suffer too much doing two races in a morning.

Keswick Parkrun 27:48 with several ups and downs which were telling me my hamstrings are not recovered yet.

Then Isel Cross 5.5 miles with 3 on road then a track for a mile with the later 1/3rd or so up hill more than the slight bit to start with. Then the rest is downhill over fields with  a bit on road at the end. 52:14 for that a couple mins of course best but legs were aching and knackered unlike me. Oddly Garmin claims 7:45 pace for the last 0.4 it measured as the average and i wasn't even going flat out or on the steeper downhill bit.

8.7 miles for me yesterday, on an undulating course. Day off today, went to watch Maidstone United play in my old home town. My 12 year old son and I have season tickets.

Early start for a 16 miler tomorrow and then family lunch at my Dad's. Hoping to watch some of the football on Sky too.

I am hoping to run Dartmoor Discovery next year, as I owe it big time.

Iain - hope the knee was Ok for your run

Keith - that's tough, 2 short races, you did well

Moore - have a good long run today, you'll have earned your lunch

Yesterday at 19:43

Shade - The knee had settled down but i am ever so conscious of it that i am almost finding an excuse not to run and i dont like it. Really struggling with motivation the past few days despite the fact my race is 5 weeks away..would it be wise to try squeeze in a couple of long runs in 15+ milers. or should i just maintain my fitness and shorter runs!!

 just calculated the mileage on my shoes...300 miles since feb so time for a new pair..
