Led beginners' group at the club tonight. They're nearly up to 4 miles now. Decent progress

It's beautifully sunny down here in London, and doubly great that it's half term, so I've enjoyed walking about, going to the park, crunching leaves, drinking coffee / hot chocolate with my youngest today.  Did a hills session earlier but opted for the easier of the two local hills as it's better lit and I've got more bruises and scabs than said 6 year old daughter ATM from my recent falls

 this was before I'd fallen into a mud bath.  Definitely not my most glamorous pic but hopefully it illustrates what fun XC running is

JT, I will now think of my Monday hills session as Kate Bush reps.

swittle- 3 outings in 24 hours!?

2 in 24 was enough for me-- it was a club mob match this afternoon, 8 ish brutal cross country miles, climbing over tree roots, getting stung by nettles, scrambling up gullies, falling arse over t*t into the mud  What a laugh, I loved it!

Best of luck for Sunday Matt!

I've ordered the alpkit viper.  Very cheap at 12.50  and free delivery! I'm looking forward to getting it and doing some mental night running through the forest with the girls current  head light was I think a Tesco's one from about 6 years ago that we use for camping. It slips and irritates me something rotten.

Just 4 miles for me today as I'm doing a XC race with the club tomorrow.

Thanks for that swittle.  I am waiting for new stock to arrive as it seems virtually impossible to get Alpkit from their website..may have to go for an inferior product in the meanwhile.  

Great racing from Nayan and Lily, and excellent report from Lily too.  Not liking the idea of being covered in sticky sports drink throughout a race.  Lots of glowing from Lily and swittle this week too.  Birky, I love the lakes, need to go back there as I'm just realising it's been over 10 years since I was last there.

Me- did a 12 hour day at work today due to parents' evening, but managed to pop out for a 4 mile trot in the beautiful muddy forest.  Really helped me to get through the day.

swittle, which head torch do you use? I am looking to upgrade my ancient crap one. Cheap is good

Me- Monday hills session.  Cut short on my warm-down run by taking a super-clumsy tumble onto the tarmac.  Bloody elbow and hand and a bruised, grazed leg was the worse of it and none of it feels particularly sore now.  I am truly crap at running / seeing at night

Happy belated birthday swittle By glow do you mean sweat?

Gregry- agreed, Fullers is a nice ale.  I am not generally an ale or stout drinker but both are excellent post- long run / race.

Me- about 8.5 miles slowly this morning because my legs still feel pretty tired and sore after last Sunday's racing.  I am surprised they are still suffering but I guess my body's just not used to that distance

I was helping with the beginners' group again tonight at the club.  23 of them in the pissing rain, not a bad turnout and they did around 3.5 miles following a run 8 minutes / power walk 4 minutes programme.  Pretty good progress

Thanks for the congrats MLRers  

Nice PB dank-art and some great running reports from Red (Victorian fog) and swittle, as ever.  Good luck with the run Greg. JT- Guinness is  the most ideal recovery drink it seems to me.  Absolutely bloody delicious and don't forget it's good for  you. When I was pregnant with my son (who is nearly 14) I was advised to drink it for iron  I think the world of department of health advice, has changed a little now ...

I felt like I'd been run over by a double decker yesterday so I gave the usual Monday hills a miss, and ventured out for a tentative easy 4 miles today with new running buddy from work. It was pleasant and relaxed.
