My Last Run

Posted: Today at 09:15

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

Cheers Swits, I will indeed be, body willing.  Quality picture of one of the beach dudes, as we've come to expect.

Touch of frost this morning, from summer to winter in the blink of an eyelid. I just walked the little man this morning - he's Bailey, I should really refer to his name - ran this afternoon.  Went for 15 with 2 miles warm up 11 at marathon pace and 2 warm down.  An hour and 48 all told and was very satisfied on that, given the ascents involved.

Good stuff Ness, you were never going to trouble your PB post op but sounds like you gave your legs a good stretching.

Just 7 for me, ran off the frustration of Leeds actually being quite decent but still failing to win.....

Cheers people re London, really looking forward to it already, it genuinely has been something i've wanted to do since I was a nipper.

Carter - I sent the organisers an email and they said they'd get back to me but alas, nothing back.  I'll give them a poke I think.  Obviously I can't run it this year but even if I can't marshal, i'll still go down and give some support.  You definitely running it again then?

Ness - Hard luck on the ballot but i'll keep my fingers crossed that you get a club place.  i honestly have no idea how easy that is but hopefully the answer is - fairly easy

JH - Hopefully you had some luck then?

6 today, 1 with the dog.  Autumnal feeling out, leaves starting to give me a soft running bed in certain areas.

I'm off to consider whether we can can peer pressure JT into doing a half marathon....
