Hope it's not too bad Juggler? Take it easy for a few days, fingers crossed for you.

Was really hot here in Devon Clag, so much so I waited until 6pm to go out. Well done on the run, that's a great time. 

10.30 miles for me today. Need to get more double figure runs in from now on. 

Starting again from the beginning!

Will be a little sad when the football season starts next week MS as we won't be able to go to parkrun much now but they have said they'd like to try the junior evening at the running club.

Well done on keeping it easy slinger. I managed a double figure run today on an undulating course, 10.30 miles in 1:37 so just under 9 1/2 minute miles. That'll do for this month. The only thing I didn't accomplish from my targets was an attempt at my 5k but I attended a club night for the first time the evening I had planned it so will let myself off.

Felt pretty good today cruising along at an easy pace. Legs did get a little tired at the end as I haven't done much longer stuff lately but will address that over the coming months. Mrs JR and I have entered an 8ish mile multi terrain run in October, lots of mud and a few rivers too I believe. Should be fun.

Parkrun with Mrs JR and the children this morning. I ran with our youngest as he was keen to go for a decent time. He was cruising along and had a walk break at each mile. At 2 1/2 miles he was on for 28 something but his little legs started to tire. He had a couple more walks before finishing with a flourish in 30 minutes. His brother and sister followed not long after. Lovely atmosphere at Killerton again.

You'll love the headtorch Br1an, and I like the idea of walking to work and running a longer loop home. We have had a shower installed here now so I'm co.spidering running to and from work once a week myself. Bought a New bag as my bike bag has finally given up the ghost and this ones suitable for running/cycling so will plan a run in soon.

Starting again from the beginning!

Br1an, try one of these….. https://www.alpkit.com/products/gamma .... Half of us on this thread own one. They’re fantastic for pitch black trails. I live in a village with maybe one streetlight so the winter runs are all in the dark. I cycle to work every day, have done for some years now. It’s only 3 ½-4 miles but when it’s -10 and the rain is horizontal it can test my will power.

Nice pace slinger, I often watch my youngest lad running with envy at how he glides effortlessly along.

I’m hoping for a Spring marathon Howard and I’m doing my best to fill my Autumn/Winter calendar with build up races at various distances.

Looking forward to reading the write up on this one B2B! NUTS!

Lol Grendel, hopefully it took your mind off the tooth for a little while.

Nice running Agentginger, I am practically tee total these days, I simply cannot deal with the kids and an alcohol induced hangover these days.

Nice one MS, the RWR system is one I can recommend and certainly a great way to build up the miles.

Went along for my first night running with Honiton Running Club this evening. A great bunch they are too. Nobody asked how far I could run, or how fast I run, they just introduced themselves and off we all went. A nice atmosphere and safe to say i'll be going back. There's usually 20-30 people but the weather and holidays meant just 11/12 of us. The group split into two as we went off for a 6 1/2 mile multi terrain run along country lanes, through fields, across stiles and muddy tracks. I went with the quicker group and we stopped every now and then to wait for the second group. I didn't realise at the time the pace was often quicker than my 10k PB pace (and that included through muddy fields!). Good job we had a series of rests to wait for the others. It felt comfortable thanks to that. At 4 miles the slower group took a short cut back and the rest of us went off for the last few miles. We hit a few long, steep hills, one of which almost brought me to a standstill, and the guys in front of me looked so comfortable (I didn't realise until afterwards one of them is a 2:20 marathon runner!). They were all chatting away and despite the obvious gap in ability made me feel extremely welcome and waited at a couple of points to make sure I went the right way. Looking forward to going back.

Went along to a local running club this evening, Honiton running club. The first time i've ever been to a club. Great bunch of people and a lovely 6 1/2 mile multi terrain run. Think it's fair to say Mrs JR and I (who missed tonight through a painful knee) will be signing up. 

Starting again from the beginning!
