Very nice 10.5 this morning and I should see 60 miles for the week. Going the right way and without running more than once a day.

Off to get a crunchie soon

All schools closed here  today due to the weather..........Lots of roads are closed, and not looking  to improve today???

Another day of the dreadmill!! 6 miles plus some core work 

I would love a Starbucks right now.........

5 miles easy on the treadmill - snow back but should be ok for tomorrow.

Is anyone racing this weekend or is it all base?

Haven't read back yet, but no running for me for last 3 days- a first since February. For some reason my legs have still been really sore lately- think it was doing that "slow" 35m- looking back that would have probably been around race pace for me at a distance 9m than I'd ever run before- stooopid! So took a few days off- feeling better now, but don't know whether I'll do the inter-regional xc tomorrow or not....

Been reading "The Ghost Runner" lately- the sad but inspiring story of John Tarrant. Left it with him aiming to do the Comrades too- but with a few more problems than Gobi will have to face!

We've got my parents round today (last chance to check my wedding dress is still fitting okay) and then plan for a little run tomorrow.


Oopps.  Good to hear you're feeling better.

HY4 -not long now.............

Gobi- What marathon are you doing in January??

Jason - if you do the XC -Good  Luck!!

Fiona-hope your weather has improved to and you can get out and about.

We've got snow here again but no gales probably since its my rest day!! Guaranteed tomorrow when I've got 11 miles in front of me it'll be hurricane winds and blizzards..................

Cold here

I'm doing a XC race tomorrow

Have some more rest Jason

Good luck in your race Spoons, and yours Jason if you decide to do it.

I feel sorry for kaz/Fiona with all this wind and snow etc.  

Today I did a 7 mile jog in the frosty morning. Started slowly and got faster as I warmed up. A nice feeling when you get home. Thats 29 Miles for the week, so I am gradually building again. No issues with the ITB what so ever.  Good news. 

Some lunch in a minute and then down to London with Mrs AGF. I had a bonus at work, so a top notch restaurant treat, a late night in bars etc and stay over will earn me points in the bag as marathon training kicks in properly afetr Christmas.

We have actually braved Milton Keynes this afternoon despite there being a F1 Red Bull drive by in the city centre.  Admittedly most of the trip was spent in Sainsbury's but we did then walk up to the centre as Mr USB needed a new phone battery.  All the fast food joints were jammed.
