Yes, indeed, I'm still Streaking and still whingeing about 24-hour DOMS

Rather enjoying my sequence of 10k early morning outings, inevitably taking in the seashore at some stage. 

Day 1571 of the madness!

Still breathing, still Streaking - thanks for your enquiry, Nessie.  Think I may have some viral unnecessariness, causing cough/cold symptoms & affecting breathing a little too.  Am OK once I've warmed up but the Streak leaves me only limited recovery.

This week has consisted of 6 x 10k + a little 2.8 miler this eve to bring up 40 miles.

My days of sobriety are bookended by Thatcher '79 and Cameron '15 - not sure to be ashamed or proud of my longest Streak.

Still here but still not right.  Breathing's clearer but I've little pace to speak of - never had, come to think of it. 

Last 3 days have each been 10km off roaders on trail & beach, with as little road as possible,

Ace painting, Dank-art - hope bids flu upwards.  

Speedy Simon D!  And Pompey Matt too 

Have a good 'un today, marsh 

Rest & build up steadily, Nessie - it's the foundations of further improvement [gosh, I sound like a teacher too!]

It's not good but it's ok covers my last few weeks'running: hamstring, hip, falling over and waking up feeling like I'd already run.  Still, should be 40 miles again this week [stupid 2000 miles a year target] and I'm a little easier.  

Thanks, Nessie et al. for your concern - bad patches are made for going through!

Just divesting myself of the porker injury when I go arris over tête crossing an innocent looking sandy drop.  Watch stopped just after impact - naturally - some honest Anglo-Saxon oaths, and I hauled myself up on a convenient fence post to resume activities.   The elephantine elbow is now even larger, with just a couple of grazes.

Must be less careless....

6.1 miles, Day 1550.

Nessie, small looks more exhausted than you!  Brilliant racing and a massive prize simply to be there!  x

Really delighted for you, SB: all the training, early & late, road & not and the niggles were worthwhile.  Big congrats

+1  Your body's repairing itself after the infection: it doesn't need extra demands making - so, very steady as you do: not gonna be a PB attempt anyway.

I've enjoyed your Mara training progress & updates, Nessie & SB but not quite enough to follow your lead...well, not this year anyway!  

Run smart, run safe, run swift - and run with the sun in your heart.
