Steve - you seem to be doing well on P&D, nice pace for the LT runs. Are you following the 55-70 plan.
Shades, glad you're better, did you try the Vicks on feet?! We still haven't got a dog, need to sort out how we'd manage it in the first couple of months if we get a puppy.
Jugula - I hope your dog is recovering well and enjoying his chicken!
Big G - nice running purchases there. I've only run with a jacket a couple of times as tend to find them too hot. But that's probably because my ones are cheap, I reckon the better quality ones are better for running in.
Cal - hope the groin strain comes to nothing, good idea to take a duvet day.
Louey - did you get your shoes from the Eastcote RW? That's where I'm going for my hamstring massages! Booked another one for next week.
Did a hilly 8 miles with my club on Tuesday night and hamstring felt a bit sore after. The pace was a bit faster than normal as there were a couple of speedy runners - I should have kept back as there ended up being a couple of groups, but the competitive side of me made me keep up. There's a speedy girl who runs for us as a 2nd claim and she is so strong that you notice no difference in her pace or effort as she ploughs up hills leaving everyone behind! 10 miles today with 10x100m strides which I did on a track. There was a group of dog walkers walking around the track with about 8 dogs between them! It was cold but the snow from last night had melted so the ground was OK. But started snowing for the last 4 miles. Glad I wore a hat and 2 pairs of gloves!
