lol MS....I'm running the Yeovil marathon. It's the first one this year and on my 40th birthday too . We're lucky here as the tow path is safe to run on in any weather. Not worth the risk if it's icy on the paths and roads. I like the Jeff Galloway approach. I ran/walked for the first few years when I took up this lark. Think i'm right in saying he ran a sub 3 marathon with walk breaks? Nothing wrong with walk breaks, I did my first sub 60 10k using them too, much to the annoyance of some people I kept overtaking during the running bits. Not sure you'll have to worry about them packing up, you'll be fine. There will be a decent size field and you'll have plenty of company on the way round i'm sure.

We love cake here too Eckytump, especially me. Mrs JR keeps making them and I keep eating them. It's a fair deal in my eyes. I lost 3 stone through cycling and cutting out crap a few years ago. I did get another stone off but I have gained half a stone over the last few months. Will make an effort to get rid for my marathon.

Hi all, hope everyone is able to get out in whatever weather you're getting?

I missed Wednesdays club run as Mrs JR was unwell (still not 100%) and as it was a bit of a drive didn't want to go on my own as i'd have spent more time driving than running! Got out straight after work today and ran my 6 mile loop around the country lanes. Ran it backwards today, which meant climbing the two steep hills instead of running down them but had the advantage of running down the longer hill. Felt like a bit of a chore for the first couple of miles but turned into a thoroughly enjoyable plod. 

Once the Grizzly is done MS, I too shall be entering official marathon training. The schedule look dead easy for a month, then gets quite scary! Hope you managed to get out for your 4 miles. Are you following a generic schedule or something tailored to you? I think i'm going to go with the asics plan i've downloaded from a link on here.

Don't fret 330. That weight wil drop off with regular runs. You'll be flying by spring

Hi everyone, welcome Eckytump.

Will have a good catch up real soon, very busy weekend and week ahead. Made last week my easy week after three weeks increasing mileage to fit in with a busy weekend. Went out Monday for 4.5 ish miles nice and steady. Out tonight with the club, we are running with another club tonight so lots of options as to distance and terrain. 2,4,6 and 6 fast plus 6 off road. Will probably go 6 miles off road. Catch up with you all real soon.

Nice one Tom. The kids football has taken over this weekend and I have changed this week to my easy week which was overdue. On the plus side, my daughters team won their County Cup Semi Final 4-0 this morning. They had a fantastic coach today (even if I do say so myself )Back out tomorrow.

Nice one 330, easy does it! 

Honiton have over 100 members now. They're a well run club for all abilities and every run has a great atmosphere. There's always such a variety of runs each night. Next week for example, we are off to Sidmouth running club for a joint session. There will be a 2,4,6 and fast 6 run plus an off road run. There will also be a beginners group. In contrast, the club just down the road from me are losing more members than they gain and have about half a dozen people at each run. One of their members asked me why I joined the club I did as they're 15 minutes further down the road and the main thing was the relaxed, friendly atmosphere at a club where your speed doesn't matter.

Quite mild tonight, bit different from the last few nights. 5 miles with the club and then everyone back to the pub for a £5 2 course meal. Must have been nearly 30 club members present so a good turnout.

Will catch up more Friday

A pigeon did scare the shit out of me at one point Amy! I'd stopped after about half a mile for a quick stretch and it came out of the tree in front of me...
