First 5k handicap run with the club tonight. A toughish course with a long hill in 24:05.

Starting again from the beginning!

Never had food poisoning Grendel, fingers crossed it's mild food poisoning then! 

Well done slinger. Nothing like a run to give the tired legs a reminder what they're for. No doubt the next run will be so much easier for getting a run in so quickly after the half.

Handicap run done tonight on what was described as "not a pb course" by everyone there. The advice from some was run slow and win next month but didn't fancy that as  felt pretty good. Mrs JR and I set off together with an estimated time of 26 minutes. We set off downhill before run through the village and turning left uphill. Not quite sure yet how long the hill was but around 3/4 mile. It was bloody hard work but tried to keep the arms pumping. Turning left at the top we ran along the main road which was around a mile long and quite dark under the trees. It was tough going along there as it seemed to go on forever but we eventually turned left again and headed back toward the village. I managed to lose my bearings at this point and ran straight past the next turn. Luckily Mrs JR wasn't far behind and shouted to me. I hadn't gone too far and managed to double back and take the turn just ahead of Mrs JR and a young runner who had caught up with us. There was a downhill stretch and three slower runners ahead of me so I pushed on again overtaking the three of them just entering the home stretch. I realised at this point I was in first place and could hear footsteps behind me. I rounded the final bend and passed the post first with Mrs JR around 30 seconds behind. Finished in about 24:05 and certainly had a bit more to give so pleased. As it was our debut I couldn't be the winner though so will have to get a move on next month with a proper handicap mark.

Incidentally Grendel, I know 5k is a little different to an off road 10 mile run but the woman who finished a couple of minutes behind me Sunday was chatting to us after the run and she's a 22 minute 5k runner so that boosted my confidence even though i'm aware i'm not in shape to run 22 minutes.....yet! I can but dream.

I guess if i'm within a minute of my pb it would be a very good run, still not sure how much Sunday took out of me though as today's run was on heavy legs. Pace was okay though and i'm not going to make excuses. Don't know if they'll start me with an estimated time or scratch with the fast ones . Seeing them fly off into the distance might be disheartening if that's what they do but i'll have Mrs JR there with me so we'll both be in the same boat.

5k tonight straight after work. Hot. Heavy legs. Bring on tomorrow.

Now that would be a step too far Clag 

5k after work today, legs felt a little heavy but pace good for an easy run.

Starting again from the beginning!

Detour probably the best bet Grendel, especially at that time of day. Bloody fair play to you for getting out at .that tme, incredible dedication.

My legs feel pretty good today so the handicap run looks on. I am going to go for an easy three tonight though just in case. I know the handicap route is tough so want to prime the legs for an effort.

2,332 feet of climb, 9.88 miles of stunning multi terrain running. If you missed it this year then get it on your calendar for 2015. It was great and so was the cake at the finish!

Achilles problem

Mine took 12 months. Not want you want to hear and very little running as tears took an age to heal. Very slow and painful process i'm afraid. You can get a splint to wear at night if your physio gives you the nod (without knowing the exact details of your injury would be foolish to simply take my advice without theirs ).
