Thanks Muttley. I'm conscious that after many months of not even doing 50m I don't want to ramp up the mileage too quickly. But not doing long runs was my downfall last year so I need to do the same.
I think everyone has made a good start.
Well done mathschick - cold was it?
Race Fees are getting ridiculously high that I seriously don't think they're worth doing. A local (Ish) Half Marathon for ??49!!! Not only that but the goody bags are full of rubbish. In some cases the t-shirt is extra. Being ripped off! What do others think?
Circumstances dictated that I did my run ob Monday night instead of today. So I ventured out for 6m easy run in nice conditions; hardly any wind. It re-affirmed that my decision to not run on Sunday was a good one. Good run but a little tired still.
Afternoon all. Only a Saturday run to report which was parkrun with warm up and warm down as well totaling 5.75M. Decided to rest up a bit on Sunday as I have increased my mileage a bit in last 6 weeks or so and left calf felt a little tight (it was cold, windy and raining so that might have been the real reason for not going).
Nell – yes happy with mileage to date but the trick is to pace your-self and remain injury free even if it means a cut back in mileage some days /weeks. I’ve often heard of runners doubling up on a day but what is the benefit of doing a 4M run in the morning and a 3.11 in the evening? Doesn’t really appeal to me I have to say.
Andrew – I had a look back in my diary and realised that the last time I did a run that was double digits was Oct 2015 when I did the Royal Parks HM. Sad state of affairs.
Another 6M with club run on Wednesday. But don't know about weekend running yet. Very cold tomorrow and heavy rain expected Sunday. Don't have a dreadmill but the thought of running on that would bore me to tears!
