Morning Chris and Gobi
Out with Geordie, looks very wet
Catch up fully soon.
Morning all - 12 miles, quite mild out there NW 1 squirrel and dogs a plenty. We do a lot of form work at track, but there's a lot of people with poor form who hammer past me, legs and arms flailing. Swimming is another matter, so many things to fix I don't know where to start. Nice country walk and birthday lunch with one of my best friends today, brollies at the ready. Have a good weekend all.
Chris, the "upright" and "relaxed shoulders" sound like great advice Not sure what the bell thing is about though. Unless your arms are crossing beyond the vertical centerline, it's tough to do the wrong thing with arms - they are a balanace and will find their own natural place - just make sure you are pumping them enough to keep your core stable to aid strong glute movement.
Just over 10 miles this morning on the wet and muddy trails around Farnham. Was quicker than last w/end so maybe all the track sessions and form work are making a difference.
I think I'll be cycling tomorrow.
is it worth doing something like a running technique course then? I was toying with the idea of doing one run by Kiinetic Revolution in Loughborough
how do you know which are good???
Anyway, seem to be having the whole weekend off recuperating. Might swim tonight just to get out though!
not sure about that, I spent 10 hours painting and decorating yesterday and will be again today. I would rather be running.
Out on the bike this morning and got soaked!
Gobi - not racing but just keep a record of my sessions and good to see an improvement in time for roughly the same amount of effort.
Had a weekend "off" running but i seem to be aching more now than if i run!
10k this morning and ended up being a ninja as my headtorch kept going off I feel that it's trip through the washing machine may have killed it.
PSC - Are you available for hire?
Morning all - 5 miles in the freezing cold, stunning starry sky out there. NW 1 fox, and a crazy cyclist in uber short shorts and no gloves. Emmy, a weekend off, 5.30 will give you stick for that you know.
Short run through the woods this morning and track session tonight. NW 1 deer, 1 OR
Kate - When was the last time he came on here? Nah... he's got better people to harass.... although I have ANOTHER weekend off this weekend too... It's becoming quite a mental struggle at the moment to think about another marathon
From this morning..
Good Morning L&G
Oi Emmy, I missed you. I had to run with the best available alternative instead......your sister! We have a mutually abusive relationship, it sort of works!
The mud, the puddles, the rain, the cold, how the novices squirmed....10 DNFs out of 76!
Saxon Shore double this weekend.... can't wait

Here's one from one of my morning routes
Stevenage was clearly the last straw Emmy. See you on Saturday 5.30, very much a SOC start.
well, last week being unwell then a weekend off worked for me - felt much better this morning and enjoyed a nice slow plod under a starry sky this morning, very cold and frosty but there is something I love about these kind of mornings
Emmy - I find the mental struggle is worse than the physical one! Sometimes the thought of going out for a long run knowing I am going to be x number of hours puts me off, but then when I drag myself out I enjoy it
Spin and swim tonight, gym is still busy before it tails off in December. Good you're feeling better MC.
Saw first Christmas Tree in house yesterday ! Can we start the SOC Christmas Tree watch now ? Please...
Off out now
Morning all - turbo and swim for me, felt I was swimming well and fast this morning but my watch tells me I'm mistaken. Seen my first set of hideous house lights, but am more than happy to stare through a few windows for CTW birky. Track tonight, I think there will be weather.
Track session last night had to be adapted due to the icy conditions and potential for slipping over. So first half hour was 3 min efforts and then 100m sprints (on the tarmac in front of the grandstand) for the rest of the session.
Hills today and then swim tonight.
Morning again you lot
NW: 1 owl, 1 white cat, 1 fox, I think ,1 runner
Smiry (light) rain here today.
Christmas shopping with MrsB later..
