Carl - glad you survived eurodisney, I can imagine that was quite an endurance event in itself. 

PS - great run today. It might not have been a PB but it was a stirling effort so soon after a marathon. How are the quads ?? In answer to your question, I had a weigh in in Friday and have lost 9lbs in 6 weeks. Happy with that as I have been experimenting with my food so don't feel like I'm missing out. I'm hardly ever hungry either so have stayed away from the biscuits !

10 miles for me yesterday at what was meant to be my easy pace of 9:00 min miles. The first 6 miles I felt I was working too hard but carried on, as you do  I averaged those at 8:45. The last 4 miles were a battle but completed the 10 miles at 8:58ish. Still much to much effort for running at that pace. Onwards and upwards as they say

Rachel - I think they are interviewing Steve Peters, the author of The Chimp Paradox, on Marathon Talk this week. Do you subscribe ?

Sean - I've kept away from those mountains since that race, I've had enough of 'em ! Cracking race yesterday, you're getting very close to going sub 40. Are you finding the time to train fully or is work still busy ?

Rachel - you need to load your photo onto your computer and then use the tree icon on the little menu bar above the box where you type your comments. There is a size restriction so you may have to tinker with it a bit before you can load it. Are you posting a photo of your socks ? Please tell me you are 

I've decided that I've been running too fast hence me struggling with my runs. I'm going to slow everything down and focus on time on feet for now I reckon. So I went out at lunchtime and did just under 5 miles down the the canal and by the river with an average pace of 9:30. It felt much easier and I didn't struggle until I had to walk up the stairs back to the office !

Afternoon all.

What terrible weather it is in the north at the moment. Rain, heavy wind, sleet and the back end of a tornado on my run last night. It really felt like the middle of winter and so I was wrapped up in hat and gloves as I headed up towards the peaks. As I got to the top of the first climb I was being buffetted all over the place and as I didn't have my head torch on I thought it prudent to head back down again. anyway, 8.4 miles later and I had finished. I was still feeling quite good and could have carried on if I had to. This is the first time in months that I've been out on a run and not felt completely exhausted at the end of it. Hopefully, my body is close to being recovered and also it is adapting to my new way of eating. I've also started taking Omega 369 and Magnesium supplements to help. Things are looking better at last.

I was considering Worksop at the weekend but I'm still not anywhere near in the right condition. Recovering from Long Tour of Bradwell in August is taking longer than I thought and the change to a high fat low carb diet is leaving me weak when running. My body is slowly adapting and I managed 8 miles last night which is the furthest I've run in ages. Might look to Clowne in a few weeks if I'm feeling any better

8.5 miles in what felt like wintery conditions last night. Headed up towards the Peak District where it was blowing an absolute howler. The best run I've had in months though as the legs kept going over the undulating route and when I finished I didn't feel like death. Progress at last
