Cal - Sorry to hear you're having troubles.  Running always makes the worst things feel a little better

JT - Pulls a monster out of the bag from nowhere!  You normally wait until there is marathon training going on before launching those missiles!

Ness - Sounds like a right good do!  I don't believe the one i'm doing is anything like as big as that, 4 hours is a big effort.

Done some running.  10 on Monday, 5 yesterday and 8 with 5x1000m pacy bits.  My overall pace is woeful, as it always seems to be after a 2 week holiday.  I can just sit and wait for things to return to normal, which they inevitably will at some magic point in time.

Get well soon Cal.  My lass had one last week, she really struggled with it.

Good effort that Mark, well played.

12.6 for me with a pal, in the bitter cold.  45 for the week so straight back into it bit i've definitely felt it.  Hopefully things will be easier next week.

Exciting stuff Ness.  I'm signed up for my first orienteering race in early December.

Got out for 6 this morning but feeling it a bit and the pace is well off.  Need to shed a few pounds and get the mileage ramped right back up here, i'm feeling a little out of sorts.

Hello.  Back after an incredibly enjoyable 15 days in Thailand, mainly looking at nice stuff, eating delicious stuff and drinking the wrong stuff.  I ran a few times out there, one beach run in the hot rain being a particular highlight but nothing over four miles.

Need to step things right back up now so started with 7.5 this morning.  Pace was down due to the shock to the legs and no doubt a few extra pounds on the waist.  A bonus was that I still haven't base layered

What JT now lacks in fully functioning gonads, he makes up for with impressive mileage.  Great work.

Just a 7 miler for me and probably only one more run now between here and 2 weeks of rocking around Thailand.  I haven't had a day off work, aside from weekends, in 6 months so i'm feeling generally quite jaded now.  I may run out there....but not much.

The words ice and bath should never be put together.  Baths should be warm, bubbly and preferably involving some chilled out blues in the background.  Brave people who plunge into ice.  I don't really do a fat lot to help recovery beyond foam rolling but boy does it work.  When my mileage is high, I will use one 3-5 times a week and it just rolls out all those knotted muscles.

Did 6.5 miles with hill reps yesterday evening and 7 miles this morning.

11 today at a reasonable but not silly pace.  Great running weather.

Good stuff girls.

Just a 7 miler today.  I always find running in the afternoon odd, I don't do it that often.  The pace felt very easy yet turned out to be 50 odd seconds a mile quicker than my usual morning easy pace.  That's a BIG difference, it's weird.

Excellent performances from Nayan and Lily, well done.  Are you too late for London next year Nayan?

10 mile Monday morning trot for me.  Started back on the audio books as i've been running with nature whilst it's been light.  With little to look at or listen to on the dark mornings, I need a bit of "company".  Nice and lighthearted with a Tony Hawks book about moving to Devon.  Sounds full of promise eh?
