RW v Fetch June Running Challenge

Well done Clag and JR. Good results from both of you. 

Got in another 10 miler today without any knee issues (although I was wearing a knee support and I was still 'aware of the ache'!) I think my flat tarmac 10 miler was somewhat slower than Clag's hilly 10 miles though!

Happy runnings

I think we can safely congratulate the Fetchies on their win this month! 

On a less competitive note, Thanks for the good wishes. I have been doing knee exercises all week and did manage a 7 miler today. Hardly earth shattering, but I shan't give up on the April marathon just yet!

Happy runnings folks

Brighton half this morning. Fitness wise, I am getting back to some standard, but unfortunately, recurrence of a knee injury meant that all my sub 7 splits up to mile 9 were to no avail, as I hauled myself in at 1:37 having had to walk for about half a mile and run very lopsided for the last few miles(!) Could be worse, but I am worried that the injury might be serious enough to harm the Brighton Marathon attempt. 

On the bright side, the weather was lovely, the run was well supported and up to mile 8 I was kind of enjoying myself 

Happy runnings everyone

Excellent running Jason. Always a good feeling to be in better shape than expected!

Quiet month for me I'm afraid. Was hoping to log a long run at the weekend, but away with family, so a total of 3 miles in 3 days(!) I have a Half planned for next weekend, so will keep the mileage down this week.

Happy runnings everyone (or football-JR)

Thanks Tek.

Good running Jason. Marathon not far enough for you today!

Well done JR. Good start for the month.

My marathon is not until April (Brighton) but at my age, I don't clock up so many miles in training anyway(!) Happy to have completed a 15 mile, very windy run over the Downs this morning. Complete with new off road running shoes.

Happy runnings everyone

Good week JR! 

Tom, I see that you logged  a 14 miler last weekend. Good running.

Jason, I know you set your sights a little higher(!) than most of us, but nice running. (I also notice that my LSR's equate to your short run days.... )

Happy runnings all

(Belatedly) Happy New Year to all 

Am now into training for Brighton Marathon, so hoping this added incentive will keep me on track.

 Happy runnings all  

Trail Running

Hi Ian,

Whereabouts in Sussex are you? There are clubs across the county that do regular trail running so I'd agree with JR's advice, contact a local club and go along for an evening. I don't currently belong to a club myself, but most are pretty friendly.

Re training plans, I also agree with JR, except that I'd add in additional hill intervals if I really wanted to push my time. Also, if you can't get out for three days of the week, there are some excellent exercise programmes for trail runners, that involve about 30 minutes a session and can be done at home. Have a look round Youtube or similar. (Sorry, I have lost my links to the programmes I used, as they were on an old computer )

Good luck and enjoy!

Well done JR. A PB and a win are very nice to get. 

Assuming the challenge is still going, I hope to be back next month. Had some problems since tearing the calf, but things seem much better the last few weeks. Completed a slow steady 13.4 this morning as a training run.

Happy Christmas and Happy runnings  to you all.
