Hello again! Been really busy recently doing a completely random project at home at night.

That #gymfail bloke sounds like he's trying to sweat it out Poacher. I hope he dries up all his sweat afterwards!

Really sorry to read about The Ankle MsE, does it feel like it's on the mend / swelling gone down? Hope the treadmill is of use to ease back into training.

Well done on that Ultra Lorenzo and achieving your sub 7 hour goal and beating your previous time by 1 hour. Pacing is always difficult for those kind of distances and it always feels easy at the start even at an easy pace too.

Good you are getting some decent paced runs in GM

Nice midweek run SBD - did no one notice you asleep at work?

I like the positive sub 2.50 vibes you've got Badbark!

Good to see some 20 milers being done already

Been getting out 4 x a week max at the moment which looks like my limit this time round and averaging about 45 miles. Concentrating on 3 main sessions a week and the other 4th run is a recovery run. There might be a window of opportunity for an additional early morning run on a Monday, but I don't want to push my luck with Mrs KR.

Good luck to any racers/parkrunners this weekend

A good end to the year for you Badbark. I hope your build up to London goes well.

Some good yearly mileages been put in on this thread, which is a good indication of some of the improvements in times. Good to read some aspirations for the year ahead too.

Happy new year to all, I hope you all gain your running goals this year. Good to see some good runs being done over the festive period, always tough this time of year.

Shame about the hip Sloakey.

Some good running Leslie

Great last mile pace MsE. Monday and Fridays early mornings might be an option for an extra run, but it depends on work and schools runs and how intense this schedule gets. I'm hoping to slot in a Wednesday night recovery run now with my lads football training - #windowofopportunity

Managed a few good runs so far this Xmas , with 16 on Xmas eve with 2 miles @ mp, then 10 with 4 @ mp on Tuesday and 5 x yasso 800's on Thursday. Went out today and did another 16 miler with a park run at mp after 10 miles. Felt a bit knackered after relentless socializing and a few late nights and food and drink. Hopefully back to normal next week.

Looks like you are getting in some good sessions SBD.

A good suggestion Speedy, but unfortunately I have to go home 3 days a week in my lunch hour to walk my dog, which only leaves Wednesday and Friday, which are always manic. There might be a window of opportunity on a Friday for a run or weights session, but will have to see how that pans out. Technically I could do it, but Saturday mornings will be a hard session. The main thing for me is a the 3 key sessions per week, anything else is a brucey bonus

Abbers, yes Martin has got his Mara time down to 2.44 and the personal training us going well. I designed and built his website and he does quite a regular blog on it.

MsE I would love to be able to run 5/6 days a week like I did, but Mrs KR wasn't happy about it hence the 3 day plan. Not sure how it will go but I love training and running marathons so it's a compromise on both sides. Nice 14 miler.

Good to see you on the road to recovery Minni

Nice park run and yearly total OO.

A decent time in those etreme conditions there Lorenzo

Nice 12 miler there Leslie

Good timing on finishing the book Gul, did you drop enough hints on a new one ?

16 miles this morning with 2 at end at Mara pace. Looking forward to the break off work and spending time at home. Merry Xmas to all threadsters, enjoy the break!

On one of my shoes the mesh split from the sole - a defo sign I need to get new ones!

Thanks for pointing me towards that one Poacher. The cross training does defaet the pint of only doing 3 sessiona week, I might as well run 5 times like I did before. I did get some advice from Martin H (the purple fairy) who is now a personal trainer and he's talked about using a resistance band for some home exercises which I will pursue.

On the subject of shoes I need to get a new pair, I have got 2 pairs of the same make and now wearing the left shoe from one and the right from the other. (Surprisingly there is no Yorkshire in me Birch).

Good luck for the 18 miler Birch

Good progressive 11 mile SBD.

Nice 10 miler Abbers, good plan to bring the long run forward. Will do the same but on Saturday morning.

I've found a 3 day a week mara plan and it's pretty intense!

Some good running going on, GM's sub 19 5k and Leslie's sub 40 pavement run and OO's 38.10 10k race to name a few. Great stuff for this time of year.

Good to read some of your training has started already for next Spring, seems early, but I think Manchester is 2nd April? Sounds like you are well into your training MsE. It's a good course and really flat. There is only one hill and that is the road bridge that takes you into Altrincham.

Been busy lately so not been able to post much. Did an XC race last weekend which was tough and reminded me that I prefer tarmac! Toying with running a Spring marathon for fun off a minimal 3 day training plan. Anyone done a 3 day plan before?
