Didn't Jo Pavey do great to get 3rd in SPOTY! Impressive  

I haven't run for 14 days now I've missed over 100 miles of training. I am not 100% but I think I'm well enough to get out running again tomorrow. I think i've been patient enough

Also, I have Portsmouth Coastal marathon next weekend!

No running since Sunday It feels like an eternity. Cold muted in to Flu - I have a temperature, feel sick and have a cough as well as sneezing. Finding it really hard to sleep at night with the shivers etc.

What a bugger. Totaly screwed up my weekly/monthly mileage

I ran 202 miles in November. Was hoping to go bigger in December.

Emmy people seem to rave about the Petzl Tikka and Nao in other threads asking about head torches. Apparently it adapts it's intensity to ambient light so as it gets darker the torch gets brighter. There seem to be many variants though and im not sure what the differences are.

Hi Anniesophie! See you in Paris, I'm going too I used Shades plan to do London a couple of years ago and it was great. Being on the thread was also brilliant and Shades is so responsive (I don't know how she does it) that this helped as much as having the plan itself!

Well done on getting through your birthday so well - must have been such a hard day for you. Short break in Rome sounds great. It's so good that you have friends keep an eye out for you. It reminds me that I should value my friends more and I'm going to definitely call some of them tonight.

Shades that an impressive time to be up. What time do you go to sleep?

So, Twin 1 has had a cold for several days, and a cough too. It was only matter of time before I got it and I am surprised i have lasted this long. Woke up today with a stinking head cold. Let's see how long THIS one last for

Happy birthday Big G. 

SK  well done on the award Can I have your autograph please?

Emmy - hope you get well soon. Try not to rush back in to it, but then also don't take 5 months to recover from a cold like i did lol.

Real life got in the way of running again. I ended up with only 4 runs instead of 5, missed park run (was to be my first), and ALMOST missed my long run but recovered that one in epic style. I didn't do the distance I wanted but it's not too bad either.

I ended up heading out for my long run at 7.30pm on Sunday night lol. It was windy and spitting a bit but nothing too bad. I thought I had identified a 5 mile loop from mapmyrun that i could do and I wanted to do 28 miles (slowly!). Looking at the time and my pace this was always going to be ambitious. 

As I joined the loop i realised it was going to go down some relatively unlit country roads. I stuck with it as best I could but about half way in to the loop I could see I was go down a completely unlit country road with no footpath. Of course I turned around and stumbled my way back to a 1 mile loop I use that does not have too many side streets interrupting it. I had done about 9 miles by then. I ran 10 of the 1 mile loops and got bored, arriving home for a 20 mile run. 

Got me to thinking about running loops. I'm sure you have all seen Steve Way's 40 miles of half mile loop but he's not your average guy Have any of you done any significant distance using 1 mile or less loops? It's a weird experience. I can't work out whether it's harder than running a single loop / point to point or harder. On the one hand the end is never too far away (making it easier) but on the other hand your feel your brain turn to push and you feel a little bit like a hamster in a wheel
