que sera -Like the idea of scaring walkers in the fog-
Hopes everyones colds are better soon
easy run for me yesterday- never thought i would say "just 17K"
Going to try 14 miles this week- all being well
Need to find some new routes- developed an unhealthy interest in my car odometer!
well my marathon training has officially started
have had to invest in a full foot and ankle support to make sure my ankle is fully supported after the break
i have had my running club coach draw me up a plan and it has me down as:-
mon, wed & fri - bootcamp
tues - running club
thurs & sat - runs
sun - long run
I'm concerned that there's no rest day in your schedule Muppley.
You don't want to end up injured again
yeah i know sat is a 2-4 mile easy so really i could just miss that out if needed
had my 1st running club session in 10weeks last night - ankle was strapped up pretty well
ended up doing a really hard 7 mile session which incorporated long runs short reps and hills - feeling it today!
Ok - make sure you don't overdo it Mupps.
Walked for an hour yesterday lunchtime and half an hour back from a shopping trip today, followed by walking up 16 flights of stairs (that was unplanned!)
Looks like I may have to run at silly o'clock tomorrow. I am working offsite and will be on my feet all day instead of sitting at a PC so I know I won't be in any fit state to do it afterwards. I remember standing up all day in heels when I was younger (!) I don't know how I did it but I do know why I was slimmer then
Just planned my route for the weekend's 8 miler. I couldn't avoid a slope right at the end but overall it isn't too bad.
Yeaaaah, bring it on!!!!!!!
Sorry to hear that Mitiog. I'm still coughing and spluttering too, but thought I'd better get a move on anyway, so I've been on a 10 mile run at the weekend and went out for a short one this a.m. Hoping that running might help it to clear quicker.
How did your run go Screamy?
Running at 6 in the morning on Thursday was a bit of a shock to the system. Saturday's 8 miler was hard - I never seemed to get my breathing right and I was in need of a jelly baby in the last mile so have ordered some in my next grocery shop.
Legs felt ok though
Mitog, Que Sera - hope you feel better soon.
Poor Screamy I hope it's not the lurgy that's been going around.
I'm only shaking mine off now. I have't run in a week and half.
I think I caught it from my mum - she's had hers for 4 weeks
I feel like someone has poured itching powder down my throat this morning and it always gets worse at night so I'm thinking I will have to stay indoors and stick to the stationary bike until next week. No other cold-type symptoms though which is good - I don't like feeling groggy.
I'm off to the chemist for some cough medicine at lunchtime - yeuch!
Eating chocolate always helps though so I suppose it's an excuse to do that for a few days. Mmmmm......
Still, this is why I always start training early, it helps factor in the three "I's" - illness, injury and ice!
I'm holding off until Sunday when I can do my long run. I'm feeling a lot better though
I hope everybody is back to full strength soon.

Hope everyone is recovering. I did my 'long' run this morning, as am on my own with kids over the weekend so I won't be able to get out. It was beautiful weather but I felt quite tired at the end of 10 miles. I'm supposed to do a half in a fortnight - that could go spectacularly wrong I feel.
Right - better get back to work. Wishing good running and ehalthy bodies to all
Ooh cool t-shirt Sacco - love it
I've just impulse-bought a dress without trying it on - that's not like me at all usually but there was 20% off - I can always take it back
Thanks for the healthy vibes Qur Sera - I could certainly do with some! Haven't run this week and have rellies down for the weekend so it looks as if I won't get a long run in. Still, it will give my cough a chance to go away - it hasn't been as bad as some I've had I'm relieved to say - or perhaps it's because I've eaten my bodyweight in chocolate this week - such a naughty Screamy
The mini stollen bites sound yum mitiog - pass some this way
My maths is crap but I think that should be about 1.02, 1.03 for a 10k - feel free to correct me anybody.
I can't do maths, so I used this http://www.coolrunning.com/engine/4/4_1/96.shtml
I reckons a 10:45 min/mile pace is 1 h 6m 10k.
Not sure Sacco - I've run 1.05.53 for a 10k as an 11 minute average miler so 10.45 should come up a bit quicker?
Solution = Mitiog runs 10k and reports back
*Screamy is now drooling over curry recipes after a conversation wth a colleague*
Thanks Iklebutn and mitiog. It's on the 18th near Wellingborough. I'm not too worried because it was only intended to keep me on track, but I didn't run the 10 miles as easily as I had hoped... partly due to taking time off with lurgy a week or two back.
Mitiog, you have been running consistently for the past month or two and are better over a longer course - a 10k should be great now because you have a mile or two at the start to get settled in and relaxed. i wouldn't be surprised if you were better when going at the same speed than when trying to adjust between a particular pace and a recovery.
Really nice weather now - might force the kids out for a walk this p.m.
Well I wasn't expecting to run at all this weekend but in the event managed 5.7 miles yesterday which I was really pleased about. Felt about a ninety dragging myself round but my time wasn't too bad considering I'm not 100% . My chest is being a bit unforgiving this morning but that's probably more to do with the freezing cold - lovely and fresh though- - brrrr!
Hope everyone else's weekend plods were successful.
I'm quite happy with the way training's going so far too Siony - I just need to stop eating so much
I love my old garmin, not that I use it particularly constructively.
I finally got out for a run yesterday, it felt "challenging" so I thought I was doing well. But when I looked at my pace it was the same as every other time I'd done that route.
That'll teach me.
Mitiog - you could wear both on one arm.

Don't worry about eating too much Screamy, it's the christmas season (sort of). Think of it as storing up fuel for the miles ahead.
