Overdone it?

I can vouch for that.  My whole left leg is like a tree trunk after a certain amount of time without loosening the calf.  I am sure this is because of a style fault, but it's definitely the calf that starts it all off.

Exactly marrows.  Well assessed. I believe it's a Yorkshire term.

Being reborn as a lady with a strong bottom sounds vaguely mystical.  Or feminist, perhaps.

Ramjet, I have been the same this week, and I have done no Orme-sprinting.  

Hi Coop!

acp, great stuff, well done  Softly softly catchy monkey.  Or softly softly less impact on joints or something.

Westy, yes, I am hating this black Friday nonsense.  Yet another American thing that's gone stupid over here.  Don't get me started on Halloween.

12 miles done this morning in fog and drizzle.  Pretty grey and miserable, and I was pretty lacking in energy again, but set off slow and finished a bit stronger than the last few runs.  Must make docs appointment to check out iron levels, I suspect I shouldn't be as shit as I am at the moment.  I feel like I'm in the middle of peak marathon training and I'm actually only running an easy 40 miles a week.  Not in the least bit hungover, however, so will try getting pissed again tonight at running club social

I always end up hossing it off at parkruns. Oddly I don't do the same in races - I make a real effort to stick to the plan for a race, but I think the parkrun insanity is brought about because there's always the feeling of oh well there's always next week.  I always feel like I may as well smash it and blow up (or ideally not) in a parkrun because there's nothing lost, really, by doing so.  Perhaps this is why most of my parkrun times are a bit pants.

Boo, LFR I can't see your post

In other news I am a bit pissed. On a school night. Thank goodness for autocorrect.

Well that made a change.  A rather cute hairy thing in the thread.  He looks Very Important.  

I am no longer wearing my chav-wear, you'll be pleased to hear.

*sulks* why do I not have a murky orange cell for being the lightest? (Also, now 8st 6)

Lots of sense being talked! That is all
I have to contribute. Except the info that I dressed as a waste-of-path jogger for my recovery run this morning. Tracksuit bottoms, T-shirt and earphones. Oh yeah.

Gosh Lou, padded shorts and a flashers armband- wouldn't want to bump into you mid run

Muddy, sounds like things are in place - all you can do is have a good go!

Skinny, don't blame you for substituting a parkrun - they're a good way to sneak in some speed work without feeling like you are.

6 easy miles early doors. Bit damp, my frequently used former railway path was rather muddy.

Off out in the drizzle.  Tights, T-shirt, reflective jacket and gloves. I am a wimp, I suspect, but I already have a couple of fingers without circulation and that's just from sitting in the house.
