I like hills too. There just are none in Oxford.

I'm another fan of canal paths - flat, quiet and often sheltered from the wind. I also like rivers.. basically let me run near water and I'll be happy.

I ran my first mid week MLR today - 18km and I'm now very tired. Not sure at this point how I will fit these in and then be functioning for the rest of the day at work. 

Wenty - practice running down hills.. I ran a hilly marathon last year and it was the downhill that broke me (not completely, but the quads were a mess from the first descent).

Animal - looks like we're back on the same training page again after my few weeks of swapping about. I'm interested to see what this week brings - I'm lucky that my first medium long run coincides with my half day off rather than what will be an after dark version from here on in.

Why is Manor Avenue your nemisis Robin?  

Carter - glad your diet is working for you. I've been away from home since Wednesday, calorie counting and conferences/friend visits/fieldwork just don't mix well.

I'm not Howard, I'm allergic to so many things already I just couldn't cut out another food group. last night was one of the rare evenings the veg option didn't have nuts, mushrooms or wine as an ingredients. I'm sorry to disappoint! Do you find it tricky to get enough iron when training?

Sorry to hear about your marathon Ikle. Maybe you should take up triathlon? Easier on the body, lots of fun + I am also available for triathlon nemesising. 

I'm in Scotland at the moment. Enjoyed a lovely long run around Edinburgh yesterday and will be exploring Glasgow tomorrow for a medium long run. Had a spot of vegetarian haggis for my dinner last night. A day early but never mind.

Hello from Glasgow! 

Some great long runs happening now, and some very speedy ones at that! I really rnjoyed my 26km run around Edinburgh yesterday and managed to land 19 of the km at MP despite not realising the first 10k were up a slow incline of about 400ft. My friend/ route master neglected to mention that bit. Looking forward to a 18k jaunt around Glasgow tomorrow to conclude my running tour of the north. 

Stay safe on the ice everyone!

Thanks AlanB! 

I have tired legs having not had a rest day since before the race - two rest days tomorrow and Saturday though. Phew. In Lancaster tonight, then off to Scotland for the weekend. I will be running in 3/4 tights. For info.

Carter, I'm doing Richmond Deer Parks HM on the 22nd of Feb? It looks nice and flat, two laps, not too busy. 

I like your name sorequads Good luck with the 20m! I still have a few weeks before the big one.

I ran 10 miles including the club hill session last night, plus a mile I think.Very tired after Sundays race. A nice recovery 8km for me this afternoon - looks lovely out.
