Morning everyone,

Did my usual 3.1 miles today in 28.39 mins. My run at home has a uphill stretch in it, whereas work one is flat. Hopefully I'll get more runs in next week, I'll also read that link on strides that Johnny posted.

Good luck to everyone who's racing this weekend.

Just got back. 3.1 miles in 27.14 minutes which was a little too fast to be honest, I was floundering towards the end. Still it was good to get out.

Terence, thanks. At the moment I'm interested in getting fit and maintaining my weight. I was 13st 8lb earlier this year, I'm now 12st 7lb and want to stay there. I would like to do some 10k races next year. My problem is that I have a 2 to 2.5 hour commute each way and if I don't run at lunchtime I don't run at all, which is a pain because I miss it. I have tried blocking an hour out in my diary but that doesn't always work.

Ideally I would like to run 4 to 5 times a week.

Pain in the bum! All day back to back meetings at work yesterday and today so I didn't run yesterday and won't be able to today. I don't get home in the evening much before 7.30 so don't feel like running then. I have to say that I really resent the modern office practice of lunchtime meetings, no one seems to take a lunch break any more, if I say that I'd rather not have the meeting because I want to go for a run some people take that as a lack of commitment to the job. Strange attitude in my opinion, work to live not live to work.

So I am going to have to have a good run tomorrow and over the weekend. As a matter of interest what is the absolute minimum you should run each eek toaintain fitness? I ask because my job is busy at present and I can see this being an ongoing issue.

Have a good day everyone.

Johnny thanks, I'll give that a go. I could only spare 20 mins this evening for a run so if I can make it quality that would be good
