Bumped into Njord today at the Conwy half marathon. He was pacing 90 and I failed to keep up with him. There's just one hill he said. Hill? It was a bliddy great mountain! I had to stop to walk on it three times, then the kamikaze downhill afterwards gave me a stitch so I canned it and jogged it in. I really must check course profiles before I randomly enter stuff in future.

*waves to Minni*

We held a minute's silence before the XC today, and most of us wore black ribbons either in our hair or pinned to our vests. 

Great running KR!

The PF is probably runable now, my main problem is now the groin/lower abdomen issue that there's no way I could run on, so if CC has anything that I can wear to help fix that then I'm all ears !!!!!!

Erm, would a steel boned corset help in any way? I've got a few of those. 

Currently in Portugal for the Algarve running challenge. Today's race was 5k on the undulating trails. Not my greatest effort by a long stretch, but I'm saving myself for the mile tomorrow and the biggie on Sunday (there's also a 10k on Friday but I'm definitely taking it easy for that one.

When did you ever get attacked by a cat while out running Poacher?! I'd say to be nice about cats or I'll set my two on you, but neither of them would be bothered to chase you. The elder cat would ignore you and go to sleep and the younger one would meow at you until you stroked her. Dogs on the other hand.... 

Currently on 1523 miles for the year, which is low for me. I'm certainly not going to match the 2700 I did in 2013.

Gul, that sounds like a nightmare! I did a similar one last year in Derbyshire (27,3 miles with a list of directions and the occasional sign pinned to a tree) but it took me 4 hours 27. Never again!

I've never had PF but I can confirm that high heels fixed a pulled calf. I have some really, really high ones if you'd like to try out the theory TR! 7 inch heel, but only a size 4 and a half.

Worksop Half Marathon for me today. I surprised myself again with 1.28.39, which is over a minute faster than Robin Hood last month. You can never tell if you're on pace or not as it's such an up and down course. I didn't think I stood a chance of sub 90 as every time I looked at my watch I seemed to be doing over 7 min miling. I clearly didn't look at my watch during the downhills! Then spent the afternoon spending the vouchers from both of those races. Retail therapy with free money Still a long way off my best, but I'm clawing my way back.

Jooligan, I'm assuming your XC and fell series will be over by the end of January? In which case there's certainly no harm in targeting them. It's good to have something to focus on before the real hard work for London kicks in IMHO. I wouldn't bother with parkrun myself, but in the build up I do like to race over 1 mile, 5k, 10k and Half Marathon to see where I'm at, as well as the big club XC races (County Champs, Regionals, National and Inter Counties). I'd count the half as a B target and everything else as a good tempo workout/C target.

I don't fancy Beachy Head from those descriptions. Well done fellas!

That's a shame Jooligan. Viruses are evil, as many of us know all too well. Just know that the training was not in vain and will stand you in good stead for the next campaign.

Windy out today isn't it?! 18 miles brings up my first 70 mile week of the year (and last I would imagine). What a battle the last few miles were with leaves blowing straight into my face. I think it traumatised me somewhat. 

Any particular reason for the cycling Poacher?
