My Last Run

A fabulous and mucky 9.5 miles in the forest this morning for me in ideal conditions. Sunny, mild and overnight rain made for extremely deep, wet mud.  Met a friend part way through for a mini-trot (she is recovering from injury). We had a swift coffee and she, rather eccentrically, led me into the undergrowth to search for holly which she uses to decorate her gaff. So last part of the run involve running with handfuls of holly. Off up to Shropshire this weekend to see in-laws and step kids so not sure I will manage a run... poss a park run if I get my act together.. Have  a great weekend all

Nice running MLRers..

Tis indeed very mild out!  Tempo run tonight with the club, one of my fave sessions.  An enjoyable and challenging 6ish miles at a decent pace I think- garmin packed up halfway through

Swittle- keep it going, nearly there mate

Birky- sounds fantastic!  Gutted Jo Pavey didn't win..

Lily- nice running

Swittle- vulpine adventures I often see foxes on my runs in the evening, and they are VERY tame around here. Went out last night for a 6 mile trot and saw two very brave foxes who just sat in the road and let us pass them.  I love them actually. Except when they piss on my front door step :-/

Nice running swittle, Gregry, Nayan, Cal, strangely

Me- the first time I've successfully gone really off piste in the forest on my own (world's crappest sense of direction)-- and *not* got lost.  I usually need to take a friend with navigation skills, or stay on the main paths. So I am feeling really pleased with myself.  It seems I maybe turning into one of those crazy ladies who knows that if you go 100 paces from the gorse bush, in a south west direction, it will take you to a dirt track and towards a clearing

The mud was awesome- lots of it was icy and crunchy, other parts very thick and wet. About 7.5 miles of fun

or this lot  might be more up your street.  Don't know much about them but they look young / bit hipper than some running club types and I've seen them at a couple of races I've done locally- they look like a nice bunch

+1 to Vicky Park Harriers. Seem like a friendly bunch to me- my club competes against them sometimes

Sounds treacherous Birky!

Me- 10.5 miles easy on the roads. Not my most inspiring run but feel better for doing it

JT- great spots on your run

Birky- look forward to hearing about it!  Also rooting for Jo Pavey. She's a similar age to me, also with two kids--- what an inspiration to achieve what she has!  In awe!

Me- 4 miles threshold yesterday. 8.5 miles club run at a fairly easy, social pace tonight.  Loving the Xmas lights on my run tonight
