Jools - ouch! That doesn't sound too good. Hope it sorts itself soon.
Minni - you're a naughty naughty girl. Hope you've recovered in time for today. Good luck to you and Poacher.
Moof - who won the sprint finish? You can't leaving it hanging like that!
Gentle 5.5 miles this morning - all in all pretty perfect conditions for running. Ran for a mile or so with a 67 year old bloke who'd been running for 40 years and just did it because it enjoyed it. Great attitude.
Speedy - sounds sensible to let your body recover. How are you feeling at the moment?
Leslie - not surprising you found it tough if you were up to 90 miles / week. As AR says, it's important to get a good balance between quantity and quality.
15 miles for me up and around Box Hill - early start required as I had to be back, changed and ready for domestic taxi service duties at 7.45.
Am really enjoying running without a Garmin and just using Strava to log the mileage and total time. Makes me think I was running too anxiously and inefficiently through having the ability to look at distance covered and pace every few minutes.
Sorry to hear about your news DB2 - hope things pick up a bit as we head into the New Year. Sounds like being part of the Consistently Consistent team is exactly what you need.
Talking of which I'm in with a target of 6 runs per week. My experiment with consecutive days of running came to an end today with the tally on 43 but I had a work team do last night and then had to get an early-ish train this morning so didn't feel it was a good idea. Aiming for a Box Hill run first thing tomorrow morning.
Glad to hear you weren't badly hit by the wind Gul - sounds as though parts of East Anglia got it really bad.
Welcome to Leslie H - stick around here as there's no end of useful advice and motivation (+ the odd reference to Minni's lawn and Ant's thongs). Which marathon are you running next year? 45-50 miles / week is a decent amount to be running - how does that compare to what you did first time around? I guess your work pattern won't be ideal, but worth working out how to flex the plans a bit to fit around the shifts.
