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.

Thanks for your good wishes, JT, Cal, DunkyD and SB.  Inflammation went down overnight; just some residual soreness.  Feel much more myself, with 6.3 miles of trail & beach, rounding the old coastguard station this morning.  Streak day = 1542.

Great going, marsh!  And the very best of fortune to the thread's Marathoners this weekend.

The sun's brought out some ace performances. ........

........but not from me   This morning's 6.1 miler was more enjoyable than of late, with beach & trail featuring.  Got to college and my elbow has swollen to elephantine proportions and I feel as rough as a robber's dog.   Last tumble mid-Jan., so not that.

Then Vicky [beauty therapist] diagnoses olecranon bursitis, needing antibiotics.  She's just recovering from it herself.  Not Streak threatening but awkward & painful.

Welcome back, DD. 

JT - resident mileage monster! 

0700 Fine, cool, chilly morning, so I took a tour of a deserted Rimrose Valley Country Park, taking in some of the Leeds-Liverpool Canal, then through Potter's Barn Park on my way past the Marina and - inevitably - up the beach.

The hammy?  Don't ask.  7.5 miles failed to improve its humour.

marsh, I've run in the Clwydians often, including the 'A' rated fell race  - but that was many miles ago!  Wonderful country!

Porker's a tad easier: 7am  7.3 miles over Crosby Coastal Park, the Marina & up the beach as the tide lapped gently around my feet.  Friendly breeze too.
