    I returned to eventing last Sunday at the Mablethorpe HM.  Very hot for October, indeed, for any month, peaking at 80 deg. F image  Frequent water stations helped me survive and I'm quite pleased with 1:51.

    Yesterday: slow 3 miles of recovery

    Today: not quite so slow - 4 miles around the coastal park.  Windy weather!!

  • 5.25M Steady in Wet and win. Okay run.
  • Hello people.

    My last run was a very gentle 20 min this morning. Physio says I've got a spot of ITB trouble. So, we're icing, poking, stretching and - gently - easing back into some activity. I'm excited about the last bit!

  • swittleswittle ✭✭✭
    Back up to 5 miles this a.m. and a trip to Seaforth and Waterloo on a very warm, breezy morning.
  • Dutch, glad to hear that you are on the mend!

    8 miles last night with the club. Ankle a bit sore today again so I will have to keep an eye on it.

    Good luck Dutch. Had an X-ray today on my left foot and it turns out I have a slight metatarsal fracture. Still need to check how long it will take to heal before I can run on it. Oh well, these things happen.
  • A 6M yes SIx Miles Fartlek. Good session.

    'Flew', not had such a good session in ages. Well chuffedimage

  • 10 miles yesterday with wind, rain, hailstone and then sunshine.  My legs are a bit sore this morning. 

    Next run is a race on Sunday then an easy week next week as Half Marathon 16th October.

  • Morning people. Thanks for the encouragement.

    25min this morning. ITB is heading in the right direction.

  • Me again!

    5.2M in 38:45. First proper run, really after ITB problems. What a joy to be out there doing it! Hope Solent Runner and JT are getting better soon.....

    Good to read you're on the mend, Dutch image  Left it late last night [8pm] but enjoyed 4.9 miles around Crosby & Blundellsands, avoiding the breeze.

    Echo stress test appointment in 10 days - hopefully, I'll find out that my breathing/chest trouble in August is behind me.

  • 7.5 race today 50% road 50% very muddy tracks/ bridleways etc.  Not a very fast one at 66 minutes.
  • 6.9 miles this morning in 55:34 better pace than I expected, probably due to the better weather conditions for running today. Going to start mixing in some speed work and hill runs to my routine and hope my knee holds out.
  • 5.5M Fartlek this morning Okay Run. Rain came on after I finishedimage
  • Yesterday 4M easy/steady

    Today 6.3M more feisty over hilly terrain. Pushed it a bit and ended up doing something like 7:30m/M. leg still feels fine but will rest tomorrow and see how we are on Wed.

  • Good afternoon image

    Nice to see everyone hard at it, I'm keeping my fingers crossed but my hamstring and calf woes seem to be behind me.

    Friday  5km @ 6min  pace then yesterday 10km @ 6min pace

    Sorry to here of your woes Dutch and JT, I know SR has been out for a while here hope we all fighting fit soon.

  • Still injury worried for me. Hope to start cross training in 3 weeks, then gentle running in 4 weeks. Fingers crossed my groin strain has finally healed.

    Keep up the good running everybody.

  • swittleswittle ✭✭✭
    A 7am outing - 5 miles of multi-terrain around Crosby & Blundellsands, taking in an enjoyable mile down the beach.  Warm, dry and just a slight breeze.image
  • Well done Compo!  I am thinking about a marathon next April.  I wouldnt have usually even considered it but it is a new one that is local so I might up my miles between now and Christmas then see how I feel about it then.  I quite like the HM distance really!

    Dutch, you must be on the mend if you are starting the commute runs again, a good pace as well.

    7 easy miles last night with the club.  Rest today then a short one on Thursday before Sundays HM.  I would love to beat my GNR PB from last month but we will see. 

  • Hi everyone.

    I'd say you must be looking good for a pb Alib? You've been quite consistent in the last few months. Looking forward to hear you'll get on!

    Me: 9.5M on the Monarch's Way. Another off road trail snaking across the south downs. Lovely. Took it easy, and ITB still doing fine. Lovely morning too.
