My Last Run

Welcome Andrea and that is a respectable time for a first HM.

DD- excellent time and race report.

JT- serious running mate

Strangely- congrats on the marathon place.  It was a no again for me.  Going to try to get a club place- fingers crossed

4 miles tempo for me this evening was much needed after the shittiest of shit days

3.5 miles in my late lunch break in the forest with a new running buddy- who is also my new boss. Could have been awkward but was fine and she seems nice.  My old work running buddy has now retired. I miss her Forest is beautiful

Nice one JT you are joining me in the customary Monday hills reps

Similar to you, 8 reps- my usual.  Not as pacey as I'd like but I'm getting back to it now I hope..

edit to say...DD how did you get on mate?

DD- run strong mate

Me- very pleased that I managed 12 miles, split into two parts.  What an excellent plan- down the River Lea to the Olympic park and back to meet a friend at a park cafe for chat, omelette and tea, before heading back through the marshes and home.  Hernia is healing very well and there was no pain at all, and I felt strong throughout.  Very easy pace but the target is the Kingston 16 mile in 2 weeks, time immaterial, I just want to tackle the distance and feel strong. It may well be within my sights

Running with a cold

As long as it's just a cold, ie. snot, congestion, no temperature, I have always been of the opinion that a (gentle) run is just the thing to clear it all out and it usually sorts me right out.  Entirely un-scientific BTW

Fly in gob is better than fly in eye.  Protein?

last night I was asked to help at the running club with a new beginner's course we've started.  We had 29 people turn up! Amazing turn out and I really enjoyed it, as my running group at work has temporarily disbanded.  28 women and 1 brave bloke. It turns out he's recently lost 14 stone after a gastric bypass... amazing story...

DD- seems like you're on great form for the weekend mate

I felt very warm in my vest this afternoon when I snuck out of work for a cheeky four miles (skipped my lunch break- as usual..)

Felt very comfy, tried a slightly pacier run- just a bit slower than a 9m/m and it felt fine, so getting back to it slowly but surely I hope...

I have just realised that my 16 mile race is only 2.5 weeks away... fingers crossed I'll be able to do it...

Great nature reports JT

Strangely- the thought of springing a leak is really quite unpleasant :-/  

Lily- yeah autumnal running's the best

Me- I was sensible this evening and resisted the temptation of hills for an easy 4 miles. Felt pretty good, took it nice n slow, enjoyed catching up on some Desert Island Discs on the podcast.  Stitches seem to be  dissolving (no leakage)

Managed 6 miles through the forest this morning, very very slowly but with minimal / no discomfort.  So nice to get back to it but must be sensible and take it slowly. Was tempted to do MUCH further but I though 6 was quite enough for now

Hi all

Tried a very slow and tentative 3 miles last night.  Belly wound a bit tender and uncomfortable so I left it at that. Felt quite gutted really cos I wasn't even sweaty or out of breath, and felt keen to go for longer / faster, but the body isn't really up to it unfortunately.Hoping to try again tomorrow

Great running all and hope your injuries aren't too bad swittle
