JaneyH gives sound advice DW2. We are all so good at giving advice but as runners we usually ignore it  Hope the run went well if you got out.

RICE JaneyH, hope it heals quick. 

Out early today before football for an easy 4 miles along the canal. Beautiful time of day to run in such a nice place. Love Devon!

Good running Mutley. Nice pace SaintBarca. Hope it all goes well Martin Brady 5. Enjoy the taper PompeyMatt, it’s well earned. Good to know you can grind out the miles when tired. I reckon he read your first post Mutley lol.

AndrewD, just the one marathon (for now). It’s my first so sticking to the schedule. I will ease off and do some shorter distances later in the year, hoping to set pbs at 5,10k & 10 miles after the marathon.

Time trial today. One mile warm up, a few strides and one mile flat out. 4 weeks ago 6:58. Today 6:40. Easy 4 tomorrow and Honiton Hippo Sunday.

Downhill......Kamikaze! It's the only way  The only thing you can do imo is run downhill more and get used to it. Shorter strides, don't lean back putting the brakes on too much and use your arms for balance. Practice off road and the road is a doddle!

1 mile time trial today. 4 weeks ago was 6:58......today 6:40

Great running DW2  Hope you recover well, let us know how your next run goes.

I love cycling Robert. If it wasn't for the running I'd be off everywhere on my bike. I commute to work each day (around 15-20 minutes) and this time of year it's lovely. 

Hi 330  

Glad to hear the foot stood up Janey. Lunges and squats are so good for you. Let's hope it's all systems go!

Time trial today. Mrs JR came with me on her bike (as she's returning from injury) and I warmed up with a gentle mile before running 3 or 4 strides to loosen up. I reset my Garmin and took off for my flat out mile. I was a little nervous to start and went off a bit quick, glancing down and seeing 5:44 pace was not going to end well. Anyway, I settled into a good rhythm and got the arms moving in sync. Approaching half way I was working real hard and wondered if I'd last. The watch said 6:30, a bit too quick and I was feeling it. I kept going and tried to regulate my breathing which was pretty laboured. At 0.7 miles I glanced at the watch and dug in, not far to go! The last few hundred metres were really hard and I was breathing desperately if the noise was anything to go by. The legs kept going though, and as tough as it was they felt strong. I was absolutely flat out and completely spent as I stumbled over the finish line............in 6:40.  . The first time I did this time trial was 4 weeks ago in 6:58. Pretty pleased with that. Easy 4 miles tomorrow and then the Honiton Hippo Sunday morning.

8 hilly miles done and 400 up for the year! I have a 5 mile loop which is a real favourite of mine and have managed to find a 2,3 and 4 mile loop to add to it for different distances. Actually saw another runner tonight which makes a change along the lanes. Rest day tomorrow and then a time trial Friday.

Happy running all.

Robert, glad to hear you're getting out. Please don't forget the rest days 

Always room for more Cinders. Welcome to the thread. You too Derek Walsh 2 . Good luck with the return Cinders, have you been injured? Derek, I reckon this thread can help motivate you. Every time a new face comes on here it gets me out the door. Speaking of which, almost time for a run. My schedule says 8 hilly miles tonight. No specific pace, just hills.

Be back later

Hope you get sorted Skylarker.

Well, I could have easily sat down in front of the football tonight but set out on another beautiful evening. Schedule said 5 miles with 5 strides so that's what I did. First couple of miles I gently eased into it and was pleasantly surprised at how well it went once I got going, thought I'd be a lot stiffer after Sunday. Stretched the legs out with the strides and home for a good stretch.
