Tiny - I do my LT runs on the road but it does mean I have to double back on myself quite a bit to make sure I do the LT miles on the flattest section( I live at the top of a 'hill' so my warm up miles are getting to the bottom and my cool down miles are going back up!). And because I run so early I don't have the problem of traffic getting in my way! I have also done them on a treadmill but that's probably as boring as doing on them around a track.

Happy Birthday Macca!

3.5 easy miles this morning. Then I cycled to work and realised I had far too many layers on. It's positively tropical out there today!

Westy - move the stuff! Her bagging the shower is just mean!

Welcome back Madbee! Glad you're feeling better.

I definitely enjoy the smug feeling but there's also no way I could motivate myself to go out in the evening so I have alot of respect for those who do!

Tiny -  you've made me feel better about my 4.45am run this morning! I was running up the road wondering if there were any other runners from this thread out at the same time - and there was!

HillRunner - the stress fracture occurred at the start of September. I had 6 weeks of no running, then 7 weeks of following a 'return to running after a stress fracture' plan by Pfitzinger and am now 1 week into a base building plan I made up myself! Basically I am trying to gradually increase the distance of the long run along with weekly mileage. I ran 28 miles last week so I'm getting there slowly. Did you/do you still get any pain or discomfort at the site of the stress fracture? Mine used to ache when I ran a short distance but as time goes on I'm noticing it less and less.

Congratulations on a super speedy time HillRunner. I was at the Telford 10k cheering on my husband but didn't run it myself due to still recovering from a similar stress fracture as yourself so not quite up to full speed yet (not that my full speed is anywhere near yours or my husbands!). He got a PB of 41:?? so he was happy.

'Long' run of 8.5 miles this morning. I had been looking forward to it but it felt like I was running through treacle! I was soooo tempted to stop and walk several times but managed to hold it together. Kept HR in the right zone at the faster end of my LR pace so I was at least pleased with that.

Was going to do parkrun with the kids as my easy 3 miles today but it was cancelled due to ice so I took us off to the local wood and ran along some very muddy paths - kids loved it!

Also went swimming first thing and I must have some kind of allergic reaction to the water because every time I go I end up sneezing and snotting for the rest of the day! Great!

Looking forward to 8 miles in the morning. I almost feel like I'm back on track!

Take care out there everybody.

Very wet  and windy run this morning. Even had hail at one point and it hurt!

Managed a total of 25 miles last week - a bit more than planned due to some dodgy marshalling at the local Santa fun run. This wouldn't have been so bad if I hadn't agreed to run it with my 8 year old son whose parkrun PB is 20:29 (compared to my 22.39!) and so I knew he'd go off like a rocket but I thought I'd probably be able to keep up with him for a one mile fun run......! I felt bad for him as we were well ahead of everyone else (the only time I'm ever likely to be the front of a run!) until we wrongly got sent round to do another lap. He felt bad for me having to try and keep up with him for longer than planned!!

6 miles this morning. Needed a toilet stop and managed to scratch my legs to bits trying to find a suitable bush to crouch behind!

Well done FG on the Marathon time!

I've got a Garmin FR305 but it no longer beeps and it's only 2 years old. I do love that I can programme all kinds of sessions into it though! Not sure what I'd get to replace it.
