  • Hi Ian, Whereabouts in Sussex are you? There are clubs across the county that do regular trail running so I'd agree with JR's advice, contact a local club and go along for an evening. I don't currently belong to a club myself, but most are pretty …
  • Managed a 12 miler on Friday, which I found quite tough, despite being a flat, road / seafront course! Then a quiet weekend for me. Gentle bike ride Saturday with Mrs J. Rest day Sunday, meal with friends, eating outside in the sun. Could be the l…
  • Toby, still putting in the good miles with the family. Excellent! Tillstar, I've only done a couple of marathons myself, but that sounds like a good plan to me. For my second mara, I focussed on building up the mileage at an easy pace, and getting…
  • Robert Yes. I also find it difficult to get my head right for different sorts of training. Either I focus on general fitness, or I focus on running, but rarely can do both very well. I just have to remind myself of my priorities as they vary How ar…
  • Toby, you're consistently running good miles, despite the heat. Tillstar, hope the hamstring settles down nicely. Nice 15 miles along the seafront this morning. Ok, so it was a planned run/walk but still the longest I've run this year and I ke…
  • Hi everyone. I have been mostly lurking on this thread, drawing inspiration from all your good running stories! Hope it'll be okay to take a more active part in the discussions. I've definitely been helped by all that talk of running mojo's a shor…
  • Hi HKPL, Not sure that I can advise you specifically, but from my own experience, my best HM's have been off much lower mileage, running just 3 - 4 times per week, but apart from the recovery run, I made every run count (which means getting good res…
  • Seaford HM. Was very warm, but injuries have taken their toll and it was comfortably my slowest so far Still really enjoyed it though. And good to enter a HM after a 16 month gap. Hope everyone is keeping well
  • Hi all, I have also entered for 2015 . Missed the last two BM's and haven't run much in the last two years. Too busy / injured(!) Have entered Seaford Lions HM in June, so will see how that goes. Happy running all
  • Sorry to hear about the pain. Could be a number of things, such as patella femoral pain syndrome, or a poorly tracking patella. That assumes of course, that you haven't had some trauma (impact or tear) to the knee. But I'm not a medic, and the o…
  • Hi Black Arrow.   Sounds like you have had a time of it, but as Screamapillar says, glad you have made a recovery. I was out of running for seven years and a long way past my prime when I restarted. (Injury, nothing as serious as what you've b…
  • Hi Jim, First the disclaimer. I'm not a medic. But I have had a more than fair share of injuries! 1. Inflammation is about protecting more than healing the injured area. It deliberately restricts movement, rather than actively "heals". 2. Heat…
  • Quick check in to see how Brol got on. Absolutely fantastic Brol!!!!! So pleased for you. Hope you were able to celebrate with a well earned drink or 3 or ...
  • Bro, gutted for you
  • Brilliant running TM'ers. Excellent results
  • "there" being 3:30 of course! 
  • Congrats Chick  Brilliantly deserved! I know I'm fairly new to this thread, having been on the other thread previously, but it's clearly hard earned and an inspiration to me that I might yet get there one day ....
  • Very busy in J household at the mo. so just a quick update to congratulate you guys on some brilliant racing. Last two weekends have been awesome! 2old, brilliant on the sub 3:10!!! Minni, nice PB! and Cooks as well. Super times! Freemers, nic…
  • Go Gazelle! !! That is absolutely brilliant !!! A just reward for all that training.
  • Brilliant result Brolish!!! BarryB. Excellent time!! Just need to make sure you get plenty of rest now ...
  • Couple of great results there. Well done Chicka!! Excellent result And nice PB 2old.
  • Just glancing back over many missed postings Well done on the ultra FRC. Will look forward to the report. DD, great race. Nice picture. Superb effort! Well done you!! I don't know all of you on this thread, but (a bit belatedly ... ) good lu…
  • Go Gazelle!! Thanks for the update FRC
  • Well done toby. may not have been your best experience, but sounds like a good result!
  • FRTC, 3x1 at under 5:50! Brilliant! I've managed twice under 6 mins this year, but that was on separate occasions and neither of them were sub 5:50. So Another well done!  S Sheep, I'm also a fan of spin, but slightly jealous of you at the mo, cos…
  • Hey, well done Brol!!! That's excellent! Glad to hear you are back at your best!!
  • Minni, just in case the PM doesn't arrive, please count me in on the donations, and thanks for organising. Must be a hard thing for you to do. 
  • Only just heard. Sad, sad news.  He was a real inspiration. Bit lost for words really. Thoughts and prayers are very much with his family and friends.  
  • FRTC, BRILLIANT !!! As usual Superb time!! Waves to all
  • poohbear, I think Yvonne has said it all really, but just to reiterate, sometimes it's right to stop. I've done that myself on a few training runs over the years, and in the long term, I've not regretted it. You've still made brilliant progress !!!!…
