Evening all

Excellent stuff all, and killer mileage for JT, swittle and DD in particular 

I did a club league race this morning - Barking 5k. Came in at around 24.50 which I'm happy enough with as I was not expecting a PB after recent eating / drinking excesses, and I felt like I was going to puke most of the way round :-/

Swittle- I'm down to do the Pleshey HM on 21st September, which is also part of our club grand prix league.  I'm having a (fairly minor) op on 9th September though, so I'll have to see how my recovery will be.. Also I'm doing the Garmin Kingston 16 mile in October

Swittle- yes, share the horrible anxiety about student numbers, particularly with the free schools' sixth forms which have recently arrived in our borough...And congratulations on 1300!

Nice running from DD, Jack, JT and birky- off road with hound sounds great to me

11 miles for me this morning. Pretty tough mileage wise but I enjoyed it. Need to get miles in now!

Kittens are lots of fun

Thanks for the wishes.  I've been super busy again. Back at work on Tuesday (boo!) and two new kittens for my birthday have kept me busy.  Dotty and Daisy are adorable

I've managed to fit in a few runs- an easy 7 miles on my birthday (Monday), a cheeky 4 miles in the forest in my lunch break yesterday, then tempo in the forest with the club tonight.  I need to get some longer runs in cos I've realised I'm doing a HM at the end of September and I don't think I've done more than 7 miles for at least a month or more...

Hello you lot.  Got some catching up to do but looks like there is some impressive running going on here- ultras, mileage swittling, JT, DD.. 

I got back from France yesterday.  Excellent holiday despite the most rubbish weather seen in that region for over 10 years.  In true English style, we braved the swimming pool, shivering, in the rain and wind Stayed in Barry Sheen's old trailer in Le Mans on the way home on Saturday night, which was just a unique experience.  Eating lots of camembert and bread, and drinking lots of the excellent, cheap wine, featured highly during our holidays too.  I ran most days- found a lovely 3.5 mile loop around local fields and through paths with just sunflowers and some wind turbines for miles around, and a field of sheep who never failed to be surprised to see me, even when I was doing several loops.  Some days, the boy joined me on his bike for a chat, which was an unexpected pleasure. It's amazing what 9 days of no wifi can do for a 13 year old boy's social skills

Off for a run in a bit.  It's Monday, so it should be hills, but I might treat myself to an easy run, as it's my birthday

An easy 5 miles today for me, probably my last run before heading off to France tomorrow evening.  Yes, I am taking my running shoes, but don't expect to be doing any great mileage over there

HI all

Not been around much, family stuff to deal with  

Off on our holiday to France on Friday though for ten days so hopefully that will be cathartic

I've not got a lot of running done either, but did a run on Monday around 6-7 miles and tonight a club 5k race through the forest trails.  I was pleased with my time which was around 24.50 I think. Not quite a PB but for a trail run, a pretty respectable time for me.

not had time to have a read of the thread, will try to catch up tomorrow. Hello all though

+1 for getting iron checked again.  When I was diagnosed as severely anaemic, I was on a 3 times a day 305 mg  ferrous fumurate tablet three times a day for the first three months, decreasing to two for another three months. Even after that, my ferritin levels were too low.... now I take a one a day maintenance.  I didn't even realise how ill it was making me until I felt better, and my running has rocketed.  The effects on the bowel *were* pretty unpleasant initially, but my body *did* and has continued to, adapt, 8 months on from taking a pretty high dose daily

Club 5 mile race through the forest this morning. We do three of them through the summer months, all on the same beautiful route through the forest.  My aim was to get quicker with each, and I *think* I did, but it will be seconds between time today and the July one.  June was a lot slower. My garmin makes it around 42.20ish.  A good run all round and on one of my favourite routes

Amazing celeb stories and updates from birky- keep em coming

Me- an hour and a half at sunset through Epping forest this evening with my friend. My favourite type of running, despite the short detour to the pub toilet on the edge of the forest due to a poorly timed late tea  Garmin messed up and told me we did 4 miles. I suspect it was a little more than that
