Just a 7 mile gentle outing today.  Light morning was pleasing but ultimately we know they're short lived now.

Matt/DD - Very good HMs there, some way to underestimate your own ability there Matt

Ness - Great picture.  Never really got into XC, not sure the missus would tolerate me dragging a load of mud home with me

10 miles today.  I've been really slacking recently for a variety of reasons so determined to get back on track this week with a 50+ mile week.

Swits - if your runs make you glow, surely there's no need for a torch?

Carter - Nice to hear, can't beat the feeling of a run going well

Nayan and Lily - Great races and Amsterdam sounds like a tremendous place to get yourself hot and sweaty.  Hang on...

7 miler early doors, dark as deep space, windy but dry.  I haven't yet joined the headtorch fraternity, I like the added element of surprise involved in tripping over branches you can't see and getting thwacked in the eye by low hanging twigs :-/

We have a Saints and Pompey fan on the same thread?  Are we going to have to keep you two apart?

Sorry about your tingly limbs DD!  Hopefully something and nothing.  Felt much improved today and my splits were back into a reasonable realm.  10 miles this morning.  Fairly easy going but felt much stronger, more fluid and lighter legged.  Bodes well.

Some gales and torrential rain coming for tomorrow morning's run - lovely.

Belated returns Swits, hope you had a cracking day young man.  Best of British in the 8+miler.

Jack, tremedous going, I smell a 10k PB if the course and conditions are favourable.

DD - You man be right about the dark mornings but I do think it may be more likely some kind of virus or something that my body is dealing with.

8 miles today, 5 at tempo and 58 mins overall.  It was very, very hard going and felt as if I was dragging myself through it all with absolute reluctance.

Good weekending all.

P.S - Carter, have the wheels come off?  The wheels were never on at Leeds but at least you had a set for a while.....

Ah Matt, a fellow toilet break runner, I feel your pain

Cheers Jack, good running there, very decent pace indeed.

It's all a bit queer, splits badly down again today, close to a minute a mile slower than i'd expect, they seem to crop up with regularity these phases, don't really get it.  Anyway, 10 miles with 4x1000m reps.

Just a 7 miler this morning.  Not running well at the moment, not sure why.  Times are down, legs are heavy.  May be fighting off a virus but no outward signs at all.

Well done to Ness, Dank, Matt and anyone else blazing a trail.  Always great to see people stretching themselves and setting new milestones.

Well played Swits,that's pretty cool.  I don't win much so i'm assuming that fortune is saving itself for a huge Euro Lottery win at some point....

Around 7 miles today through Ramsbottom and up a monster hill that makes you feel very slow indeed.

7 this morning with 4x1000m reps.

Second frost of the autumn, deeper one this time, proper ice to be chipped off the motor's and everything.  Unusual for early October i'd say....

Crikey, this thread's gone up to lactate threshold pace all of a sudden

Carter - Sadly, some dog owners just don't give a toss mate and it's always the small dog owner who's going to fare worst.  My fella is a little Lhasa Apso and wouldn't have a prayer against anything much bigger than himself.  All we can do is be vigilent and glad you didn't fare too badly in that exchange (or your fury fella didn't at least).

Gbax - Inspirational
Lily - Exceptional
Pompey - Sensational
Gregry - Motivational


Me?  - Predictable, 6 miles GA, one with Bailey (Bails to his best Canine chums)

Ness - Awesome news, hope you get it nailed one way or t'other
