My Last Run

The occasional urban fox and hundreds of rabbits can be seen by the Mersey estuary and Freeport.  The rabbits seem to be winning!

Even at 0715, the humidity had risen since yesterday's sunny day and my 4 miles f trail & beach left me bathed in sweat.    The troublesome knee's settling down.

Despite a rather achy knee, I should make my target of 30 miles this week.  Recent mornings have been glorious: still, quite cool and ideal for trail, XC and beach running. 

Push on towards your goals, MLRers!

'Soft, refreshing rain' just about covers conditions early on for a four-mile off roader in Crosby Coastal Park.  Fine battalion of Canada Geese by the 2nd lake breakfasting herbivorously.  Unseasonably breezy.

A tiny taper on the plan, Cal.  Glad you're feeling set to star!

Becks, if you did the maths, those hills would add some distance.  Good sesh.

Hermes, it's great running to be around 8 min/mile pace.

For me, a warm, blustery 10 miles, off road, XC & beach last Sunday; 3 miles recovery @ a very sociable pace yesterday, and 4 miles at 0730, sand hills beach, trails and a higher than usual Labrador count .

Good insight, Cal   And I'm the first to advise rest when others are struggling.  Gone a bit easier this week and the shin pain's backed off.  Just glad to be running, compared with last year's 5-month hiatus.

Q W233 - just the boost you need! 

Nessie, you're indomitable!  And PompeyMatt, there's life after injury for sure - good luck with your remaining prep.

BecksF: top marks for turning that mojo around!

Sorry to read of the tendon trouble, JT.    Time to call in Dr Rest and Prof Fizz.

The food that never fails to cheer, eh, Nessie!

BecksF: look at what you *can* do, rather than focus on what you think you can't.  If you're run/walking, trade a minute's running for a minute's walking.  Bad patches are all around and everyone runs into one now & then. 

Hermes: you'll have the last laugh on those doggies!

0930 today: 10.1 miles of XC, beach and very little road at all around Waterloo, Crosby, Burbo Bank and the beach.  Pleasantly warm and a surprising number of people, children & dogs enjoying sunshine and warmth with a gently breeze to keep it comfortable.  Tried to ignore & run through a likely shin splint issue.  Icing and warm water therapy has commenced.

Welcome, HazelnutCH.  A very decent pace. 

0730  My accustomed 40 minutes on paths, trails & promenade, heading up past Crosby Baths and returning via the beach.  Rather murky; a few drip drops of rain.

+1 to that, Becks.

Last night's gardening had its revenge in the form of a aching back - which was strangely fine during my 4 miles of XC and sand hills this morning.  Breezy, refreshing but the sand doesn't get any easier to cover!
