Swits - Always fulfilling to go the extra mile!

Carter - 1500ft of elevation id 7 miles?  Have I misunderstood that?  Gulp.

6 miles with club last night, now a fully paid up "Holcombe Harrier".  6 mile recovery run today.  Perfect running weather right now, it simply couldn't be better.

JH - There is always someone quicker than you unless you're number one but that's a cracking time regardless.  Sadly, we can't all be 31 minute 10k runners   Good luck with the twinge, hopefully just a bit of post racing turmoil and nothing more.

9 last night with 4 at LT and then 7 this morning to complete 32 miles in 3 days, probably my biggest mileage load since last April.  Guess i'm starting to ramp ahead of marathon training next month.

Ness - what a hoot that sounds.  Glad you had fun, it sounds hard not to in that setting.

Jack - Hat's off to you mate, you've made absolutely sensational progress whilst you've been on this thread and that is an immense time.  Think that now makes you the resident speed demon   Very well done to you.

Well done others on a variety of impressive ruining exploits.

16 mile LSR for Sunday including much dodging of dogs, children, cyclists, horses and large piles of stuff that used to be in horses.

JH - Hope you're right but i'll settle for just having a good time.  Anything else is bonus territory.

7 this morning.  A precipitation free yet damp feeling morning, distinct late autumn chill in the air and a general absence of cheer about the place.  Probably my run mirroring my mood but it felt lacking in zip, freedom and energy, despite the slow pace.

JH - Yes indeed, i'm joining.  In fact, it was club run night last night.  Bit different this week as the dude who takes a fast group out was there.  He nearly broke me.  Very fast, very hard, very hilly 7.5 miles.  I flipping loved it

Lily, I have a love hate relationship with sharp showers.  Sometimes they sap all of my spirit and sometimes, like you, they have me grinning like an escapee from a secure unit, loving the absurdity of it all and being open to nature's worst.  What I can't seem to ever do is actually set off going in very heavy rain.

6 today.  1 with the hound, 7x400m intervals in there.  Only drizzle, no soaking for me.

Gosh, having an emotional morning this morning.  Radio 5 are having a phone in on 11/11 with stories about who is remembering who and why.  Incredibly moving stuff, lumpy throat business.  Hope everyone "remembers to remember" today.

Ness - I have no idea what is making me think this butI just have a strange feeling that you have won an award for something.  you should check!  Well done to you, that's got to be a great feeling.  All I can say regarding the night race is....GULP!

Swits - Look after yourself sir and hope you feel more yourself soon.  We can't have the streak being put in jeopardy now.

7 for me today.  Nothing much to report but I neglected to mention that my run on Sunday involved 2 deer wandering no more than 10 meters in front of me, across the path.  I have been on that route for more years than I can think of but never seen any deer.  They were so casual as well, just trotting across without so much as a glance in the direction of the fluorescent yellow entity clomping toward them.  Was a nice moment.  Just dogs today, normal service resumed.

Cracking morning for a run, sunny and cool, conditions as still as you could wish for.  15 miles.  I must admit, I was shattered on return, think the long-ish run after the quality session yesterday took it's toll.

JT - It's very similar around here too and it's a big pity.  Dogs and cows are a very bad mix so we have to avoid a fair few paths when out with the lad.  It's a pity.

Ness - Yeah, I enjoyed it more than I expected too, good to be around like minded people, all chatting about running and not work.  Lovely

8 today with 5 at LT.  Tough little bugger of an outing.

JH - Rugby was my youth sport too mate.  Running's a tad easier on the body....sometimes!

Swits - That's you running on x-mas day then

First ever club run for me last night.  10k ish at a gentle pace but with some absolutely ferocious hills thrown in.  If I tell you that one of the hills is so steep that the council attached a hand rail to the wall at the side of it, it gives you some idea of what we were dealing with!  Was nice to mingle with like minded people and good fun all told.  I may well join.
