RW v Fetch June Running Challenge

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.

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.

Good luck Clag! Hope it's going well.

I may not be part of next month's challenge, as I've managed to injure my calf and hurt my back. Nothing too serious, but it'll probably be two weeks off running. But, in the words of one of my favourite fictional characters ... "I'll be back!"

Happy runnings

Brighton Marathon 2015

Posted: 25/08/2014 at 12:25

Managed a 12 miler on Friday, which I found quite tough, despite being a flat, road / seafront course!

Then a quiet weekend for me. Gentle bike ride Saturday with Mrs J. Rest day Sunday, meal with friends, eating outside in the sun. Could be the last time this year the way the weather is heading. 7 miles at a reasonable pace this morning.

Tillstar, to add to what Toby said, my personal advice would be, if you do decide to go for the time that close to the marathon, just make sure that you have a real recovery week the next week, with very little running. Two weeks out from a marathon, a good HM could be just the thing to finish your training, but you will need to make sure that your joints are fully recovered for the 26.2. -I usually find it takes two weeks to recover from a tough HM, so if you are disciplined, it could work well for you, but as you say, probably best to decide nearer the time.

Happy runnings everyone

Well done to the junior JR's on their pb's!

Well done for the 10K Just Run. It's a nice feeling when you get under the 50 minutes

Toby, still putting in the good miles with the family. Excellent!

Tillstar, I've only done a couple of marathons myself, but that sounds like a good plan to me. For my second mara, I focussed on building up the mileage at an easy pace, and getting used to running more than 3 times a week, with maybe one faster run each week, and it seemed to work well. You've got enough time that you probably don't need to worry about a faster run in the week just yet. I only did it to keep off the boredom!

Happy runnings

Good weekend there Jason!

Nice park running Clag and Just Run. And sounds like some excellent hill walking thrown in for good measure

I've also been on holiday, so not much mileage showing for me. Took the new bike round a French forest (Compiegne) a few times, but just at a leisurely pace with Mrs J, not training. Must have been a refreshing week though, did my fastest 6 miler of the year this morning, so I was pleased with that

Happy runnings
