Good news about Mum, Wabs & Chick bring back some of that sunshine! 
Dibs - What pace do you run the 15ks at? These are the endurance runs so should be at a very easy pace. The heavy legs could be a result of overloading on other training with insufficient recovery. What is your HM race pace? The endurance runs should be at least 1min/km slower than that. 

What - steady lunch maybe a double to boost mileage this evening (possibly not)
Why - marathon
last rest - 6/12
last hard - Tuesday
Good runs yesterday, 2 mile (track) before U11s coaching, jogging/striding with the kids, then another 2 mile (track). Surprised to see the 2x2miles were both done at just over 7m/m pace and it felt so comfortable. Must be getting fitter!

Have a lovely weekend everyone

Hope the work news isn't that bad Emz, better news re the run routes though. If you're only 5 minutes away, surely you get out there at the weekends?
Gobi, aim is to run at least 10 at target MP, so for me around 7:25s

what - club night, 16/14 minute 10k pace run with 4min easy (road) or 5 x 1 mile (grass). Probably the former as I am supposed to be marathon training
why - I'm supposed to be marathon training
last rest - 6/12
last hard - Saturday

It looks like I'm running a half marathon on Sunday: Farnborough (a new one), 9am start, just up the road, and 10-12 at MP on the schedule. So as long as I don't go off and race, it should all go to plan....

Yes, out running!
Hampshire League XC cancelled as travellers were camped in the park. 
Council should have let loose a few disgruntled runners on them!

So instead...
What - 19.5 miles (road based) 
Why - first (non stop) long run of the campaign. Bit swifter than I should have done: averaged just over 8s. Actually got quicker but the hills were in the earlier stages and it's a net downhill from around 15.
last rest - 6/12
last hard - slog up the last tree covered lane with residual ice on it (rest of it was clear).
Have a lovely weekend

Morning all
Positive news Blisters
what - easy lunchtime miles
why - recovery. 
last rest - 6/12
last hard - yesterday

Not sure where the weather went: was out for colleagues retirement bash last night; wife texted to say it was snowing and was freezing over. I left early and got home around 10:30 to wet roads and no signs of ice. Light dusting on the gardens this morning, roads/pavements still clear of ice. Kent pretty bad (by southern standards), but nothing like the pictures I saw in the paper of anywhere north of Watford!

why - shake the legs
last rest - 6/12

no sign of snow (or cold) but it did rain heavily on my run. Was quite mild this morning but Hampshire CC taking no chances spraying grit all over me at 5:50 am walking to the train.

Blisters - yep agree with LmH, 
OH - take it easy!
what - easy run lunchtime, local club meet tonight
why - hard set yesterday: did marathon group training, long warm up, 10x100m strides, long jog afterwards. 10.7 in total. Does that count as a MLR as well?
Was around 15 of us, coach is sub 2:30, others are 2:45-3:15 so was in good company. Actually felt like an athlete...
last rest - December 6th
last hard - yesterday
lyric - nope
