Just a Little Bit Further - 2014

Franny-Well done on all of your exercise. Think I will be trailing you if I get the LM place. Managed 7 miles on Friday,but, really suffered later on. So not run since.

Aiming to do a series of 3-4 milers this week to ease back in. Back is ok, but, can still feel the leg niggle.

Jude-Yes what a star you are. 100% respect to you. Really admire you - couldn't do that myself. You need to order yourself a bespoke medal.

MC-Hope you are better?

Seems that everyone is leaving this thread at least FB keeps us informed.

Oh dear MC hope your cold goes asap.

Well I am a bit achey and now my back didn't run this month...hopefully a club run tomorrow.

I will tell you something you youngsters reaching age 50 my body seems to be going downhill!

Franny-Enjoy track will be good for you in your mission to go under 4 hours at London.

First run for 10 days this morning. Went and did a 4 miler and felt relatively ok and managed to average 8.45 minute miles. Fingers crossed I am on my way back!!

Back from the physio. My back was out of alignment and the problem was with my abductor muscle spasaming! Says that I should be ok and suggested that I try & see how I am tomorrow. 

I can still feel it- so will be sensible. 

Franny-Well done on your 9 miler.

Not run since Sunday as top of my leg is still achey. Seem a bit of a wreck- though my mojo had come back, but it is hiding!!! Fingers crossed will do a run tomorrow morning...all a bit frustrating. Part of me says rest from running until the weekend.

MC- No to your kind offer of lending your children!!! 

Jude-1 week to go - hope the training has been ok recently? 

Franny-Had a nice child free weekend. Managed to go upto the Downs for a wet hilly run of 11.5 miles yesterday. Leg felt ok ish - a bit achey today- but began to feel my mojo returning!

Silver Trucker- Welcome back. Can't remember how you were running last year. I suspect the best thing that you can do is start off with a run walk philosophy and gradually build up the miles. Something like 1 minute walk 1 minute run and 2 minute walk and 2 minute run.

1st Frosty run for me yesterday 6 miles wrapped up warm,but, a lovely sunny morning. Well done MC & Franny on your runs and Franny on your track session.

6.6 miles with the club this morning- top of my leg is quite painful at the moment and takes me a while to get going so may not do Park Run tomorrow.

Weekend hooray...child free...hooray!!!

Well done Franny really pleased for you. I am sure you could do a sub 4 hour marathon & If I get my place I will pace you. I managed to pace 2 of my girlies from the club this year. They then had the audacity of finishing stronger than me. 3.47 & 3.52 respectively as I plodded in at 3.55!!! Just wish I knew if I had the club place. I am getting very tempted to enter Brighton again as I have discovered that it is 2 weeks before London next year!!!  

MC-How are you after your lazy day? I am sure you will get in sub 6 hours. 

Jude-Where are you? Did you do your marathon?

Lazy day for me as well as miserable down here and decided to rest my niggle.
