Good afternoon all
Last evening, 10km in 56min, not the 5min pace I was hoping for but another step on the comback trail and now looking forward to the GSR at the end of the month.
*crosses fingers that he hasn't cursed himself
Yes Dutch I am looking for a PB! I should be able to do it if I can maintain a good pace up the inclines in the first half. After 7.5 miles it is more down hill so it should be ok from there! I am really looking forward to it and not as nervous as usual.
Just an easy 4 miles now.
Bit of speedwork, 6*440m, in under 6m/M if I've done the maths correctly!
Very pleased. Long bursting effort.
12.5M in between slow and steady. All fine. Nice and warm here for mid October!
BTW I was wondering about Inspired Runner? he did some impressive stuff earlier but seems to have gone off the radar....
Good luck to all racers this weekend
Not a good run for me yesterday! I was hoping to beat last months 1.49 but came in a disappointing 1.52. My legs were just too tired after mile 10 and I really slowed down. I dont feel great today and have a cold so dont know if that could have had something to do with it or if it was just one of those days!
Next HM will be January now (if I can get a place) so I intend to get some good training in and do some longer runs over the distance.
8M in this morning; with something like 7.5k in 33min as a tempo run. I didn't go all out but it felt like hard work anyway!
Had a lazy weekend but back out in the wide open space of the New Forest this evening.
Fridays effort 10km in 52:18
and 8M back in about 7.15m/M. Feisty effort that left me gasping for breath back home on the driveway! The neighbours must wonder!
Good evening, all. Autumn is here! 5 miles through Crosby & Bludellsands keeping to the roads & out of a strong NW wind. Glad I ran early, 'cos it siled down during the morning
Streak = 261 days
Well done Swittle! Keep streaking!
Me: 11M off road - a relatively flat stretch, comfy under 8m/M. Pleased with my running life at the moment.
'I am here' it depends on where you are I suppose? Around Hampshire there are various events, but many are off road and 'non standard' distances.
Me: 8M commute home. Steady.
Speaking of events, I've entered a off road undulating 15k race near Godalming in Hampshire, on Sunday. No idea what it's like but sounds like fun!
Nice 9km hilly trail run in the fading light this evening around some local woods. Lovely, despite the light drizzle as I had no set course or distance and just chose paths I'd never been down before for most of it (so I'm quite pleased that I didn't get lost).
It also made me realise with some sadness that it's probably one of my last evening runs around there until the spring as it's not somewhere you'd run on your own in the dark.
Dutch: You are really getting your miles back up again! You must be thinking about another Marathon? maybe one in the spring?
"I am here" I live in the Yorkshire area and there are still a few 10Ks before Christmas then there is a bit of a gap. Have a look and local running clubs websites. The often have a winter league which may be open to all runners. There is always the park runs as well.
First run today since Sundays HM. I had a cold etc. so had 3 days off and felt much better when I ran today. Club run with Hill repeats - 7 miles.
So running in the New Forest in the evening is over for this year, just too dark to be safe, plus worried about leaving the car in a pitch black car park all by its own.
14mile in 9m/m, longest I have run in over 2 months.
GSR a week Sunday, Lordshill 10m a week after and then the Gosport half at the of November, starting to feel good about running again.
You're making great progress, Dutch
Just had the all clear after a stress echo test at the Cardiology lab at my local hospital and can now introduce some hills - mind, that's going to be tricky in Liverpool!
Approaching 1500 miles for the year with a warmish 5 at 0630 into Crosby and down the beach.
15k off roader in Godalming. Great fun, with some crazy inclines of 20%. Found myself walking up a few of them.
Came 8th in the end which is satisfying - but then it was out of 45 or so runners. Still its nice to be near the front!
Nice to be racing again.
4miles steadily in smir (drizzle). First run after 10 days rest...
Good to be back.
4 Mile in the dark to test out my new head torch, If you are looking into getting one I would highly recommend the Petzl Ultra, I went for the bigger battery but is is a bit bulky, go for the smaller of the two unless you are planning on running all night !
