Mamafox keep an eye on your dog injury, hope it heals ok....unruly and uncontrolled dogs are every runners nightmare, I always try to give them a wide berth, depending on the traffic!

Emmy a rest weekend must feel so strange for you....hope you're not getting cabin fever!

I only managed slow 5m yesterday and even slower 3m this morning as Friday was another drive up/down to L'Pool to my mums to sort more the time I'm fine, but it knocks me out for a day or 2 afterwards.

Shades my long run this Thursday is a cutback (14m).... do I seek out a hilly route for a change, or put some mp miles within it, or do usual slow and flat?
Hope your run today is wind free and warm!

Mowzer great news your daughter is home, home she's recovering well. Well done on your ultra, sounded like one big mud fest!

SK any luck on the roller?!! I've got one but need to be feeling brave to use it...find a tennis ball useful for the glutes.

Shades, I was lucky and managed to avoid the rain this morning and did a slow 18m, still windy tho. Warmed up in hot bath (sadly no Chanel) with hot choc in hand....pure heaven. Good luck with landline....hope they don't have to come and dug up your road to sort it out like one of my neighbours!

Big g glad you went to your race today.....and great running, well done. Yes I can spot the 2 hills, but isn't it a good feeling when you finish a race strong!

Emmy, hope your travelling went smoothly this weekend and you were able to complete your double?

Mamafox, no wonder you were feeling tired, you've just come through a worrying/stressful couple of weeks...take it easy

Shades, interesting about the warm bath after a long cold always appeals to me too, lovely way to warm up, but thought I'd read somewhere about cold/ice bath post run? (Never tried one!).

Did 44:17 for 5m race today, which I was pleased with.....was able to push hard for last mile and finish strong.

Sally I would forget speed work for week or so.....gradually build distance up with some easy running, maybe every other day, and see how it goes....good luck!

cdub72 ...moving the legs quicker works for me on a fast run, but Its really hard to sort when I'm running long and slow!

Hi guys- sorry I've absent from here lately, but hoping to redress that from now on!

My sleeves/pockets are always well stocked with tissues which is fine....until it rains!!
I also try and get to 180 steps/min, but only ever seem to manage it at races.
Glad the Achilles is improving'll be raring to go at sats training day then! Enjoy, and let us know how you get on.

Did my long run today, 16m, and hoping the legs will be well-recovered for a little 5m local race on Sunday!

Big G I'm glad you want to still keep the running going, and hope it continues to help you through this sad, sad time.

Iain, glad you've got appt with physio, hope they can help. Good that you can cycle in the meantime. I find cycling really hard work...have got a bike-but its a 'sit up and beg' type, complete with basket & a bell!!!

Sk enjoy your 20m tomorrow. I always try and do long runs midweek now that I don't work..lanes always seems quieter than at wkends. Managed 16m this morning, nice 'n steady, and hoping the legs will be recovered for Sunday's little 5m race!

Blimey Mowzer, that sounds a nasty accident your daughter was involved in...hope she recovers well and you're managing to stay awake today.

SK those were really fast splits on a long run, well done!

Big G woo hoo, great PB!

Thanks for 'my mum' messages....she's not ill thank goodness. She's a very independent 86 yr old, which is great...mostly! She'd put an offer in on a flat (accepted!) and put her house on the market, all without telling me... then phoned me to say why was there a For Sale sign put up in her garden???!!!! So I went up to meet estate agent, view new flat, check paperwork and organise a solicitor...bless her - she thinks flat is now hers and expects to move in 'yesterday'! Going to be a long saga....I could do with a bucketful of patience, anyone???

By the way Shades, I've been offered a place in a 5m race on Sunday - do I do 10k pace minus a few seconds?? Never raced this distance before...did 56:40 for a 10k in November.
