Easy 2 miles along the canal with Mrs JR. New shoes not so new now! Don't think I set foot on the path.

Good to hear Robert. You WILL be back, that's the main thing!

Hope you get out tomorrow 330. I have two rest days in a row, then two short runs Friday and saturday. Always feels strange during a taper but when i cycle my legs feel a bit lighter each day. Hopefully it won't rain too much Sunday morning. The course will be tough enough as it is.

Starting again from the beginning!

An easy 5k along the canal today, apart from the last mile when I ended up increasing the pace to catch someone up in front of me. Felt good to stretch the legs.

Giving advice on running

Ah...the swimming pool vending machines!

Is there a social side of running? Sorry, my mistake, I thought this might be a sensible thread. Tomorrow night i am meeting members of my running club at a pub. We will order food, run 6 miles together and return to the pub to eat. I call that pretty bloody social.

I smoked for over twenty years and have shed four stone in the last five years or so. Running wasn't the only reason but it inspired me.

Do you run alone by choice or does nobody want to run with you?

Farah on fire!

Farah has been focusing on winning medals rather than running fast times over the last few years. That said he did quote he hadn't ran a pb over 5k for around 3 years and would like to run a fast one this year. With the World Champs in August I would think he'll either be preparing for a quick one soon, given the fine shape he's clearly in or after the World Champs. Fast times don't often come in major champs but at the beginning or end of a season. I'm sure he has everything mapped out.

Swimming is useless for weight loss. It'll keep you supple but that's about it.

80% of it is nutrition, get that right and you'll be fine. You can train all you like but get it wrong and you just won't see the real gains. 

The real problem is, that's not what people want to hear. I'd tell her to join a beginners group if there's one local. It's not all about weight loss, getting fitter and running marathons. There's the social side of it, the parkruns with friends, the feeling you get from having physical exercise. 

Despite the aching limbs, the occasional injuries and everything else it really is worth the hassle.

Fingers crossed for you Robert. Hope it goes well.

lol 330. I was getting lonely! It's certainly relaxing running along the waters edge. Anyone know how Grendel got on?

Not long now B2B, i'm looking forward to this Sunday as Mrs JR and I are so much better prepared than last year (although she does have a slight achilles niggle). Are you aiming for a time or just running for fun? 

Nice easy 8 miles for me tonight. Very busy weekend put paid to running yesterday so I ran in the dark, wore my new camelbak to try it out and finished just as the lightning kicked in!

Anyone doing 'the grizzly run in seaton'?

Posted: 21/02/2015 at 08:24

I'm not sure cycling will help with the Grizzly  I cycle every day too but it won't help in that mud, or up the hills. Was your practice run over similar terrain to the Grizzly? If your legs are aching, get out for an easy 2-3 miles, it'll help with recovery. 

Good luck with your run, Mrs JR and I will be there again
