Well done Cal! We're off to Suffolk camping for the weekend which may be mental! I too got a park run PB this morning and broke the magic 25m- 24.57. V happy with that

Yesterday was a 4 mile progression run. This morning 6 miles only as the youngest has an INSET day so I cheekily dropped her at mum's for an hour.  Swim later

Hello MLRers!

not been around around much and my phone and laptop have both died 

anyway, I have been swimming a lot- my nearly-16 year old son has recently decided he'll swim with his old mum at our shiny new local pool. Which is really nice! 

Running- yesterday's 5.30 am sesh was 5 x 1km reps. It was ok but I am tired and need half term!

swittle- is part time teaching an option? And taking up a new hobby? Swimming!? ( I think I may have a problem )

Cal- JT is right. Your running is improving all the time. one of the mad women who I do my dawn runs with, is getting PBs at the age of 53. And tasty ones at that. Most recently, 1.39 for a half. She's been running for c 15 years. I want to be her when I grow up!

Chris, impressed with my session!? Am flattered although you would be less impressed if you witnessed it- not a glamorous look
Swittle- where are you at with your retirement musings? Surely tempting!?
Me- 40 min fartlek session this morning as I was pushed for time. That word still makes me snigger.

JT- bad news
Hope it is "just" a strain. Horrible.
Swittle- happy belated birthday mate
Me- 6 miles easy run yesterday followed by an hour swim

Hazel, I have never been a morning person. But a group of us women from the running club started these sessions due to struggling to find any other time for speed work. We have been doing them for nearly a year and we're all busy professionals / and / or mums, and so we're done and home by 7, ready to wake up kids/ eat breakfast and shower ready for work. I always kind of dread it, but feel brill once it's done and out of the way!
Last night was a social and easy club run, c 6-7 miles in the rain

Annoying about the shoes hazelnut- might be worth moaning to Asics?? I have before when a pair of their cumulus were ill fitting, and I got a new replacement pair.
This morning's 5.30 am session was 6 x 800m with the usual bunch of hardy women. Frosty at that time!
