2.35 miles today, 9:10 a mile. Will definitely aim for sub 1h 15 on the run.

I really miss running along the canals in Brum.

Except for the time I was attacked by a goose.

Goosed down by the canal, people pay good money for that.

Hit a PB today covering 8.27 miles in 60 minutes in HR Zone 2, little victories, the volume is beginning to pay off.

Tough Mudder coming up for me in July and have managed to up the training runs to full half marathon once a week with 2-3 runs between 5-10k at a variety of paces.  Allied to some Bootcamp and PT to work on upper body strength and core I've never felt so good! Will probably carry on the running afterwards as I've always wanted to do a Triathlon (next years challenge) so will be looking for some advice on decent beginner training regimes later in the summer.

Great Midland Fun Run today, my back has still been playing up so not half as fit or mobile as I wanted to be so will be happy to get round in under 1:20 but still have the aim for 1:15. Will see how it goes.

That's really good for a first attempt. I took 1:19:49 which was an improvement on my first go last year. It just seemed a lot harder work this time, the heat was quite punishing.

Cheers, yes the sun for the first 4 miles or so I found really draining. I had to walk up cardiac hill but it's inspired me to do more.

Looking at the 10k in Shenstone in a few weeks.

Has anyone done an ultra marathon?  If so can you recommend a training plan, am thinking about doing some next year instead of Ironman distance triathlon.

I did the Kepler Challenge a couple of times (60km). They have some good training programmes on the website for people who have trained for the event, link below.

Had a check up by a physio and I have meniscus damage and a touch of arthritis. So, I've got to correct my twisted leg action but even then, according to her my running days are over. Looks like I'll have to stick to the cycling.
And the walking.

It happens to us all eventually my friend. Have fun with the cycling.

Got a 10km tough mudder obstacle course this weekend. Has those dangler things that give a small electric shock if you touch them.

Can't wait!

I really don't get the attraction of these Tough Mudder events, I'd rather do a measured course half marathon, marathon, or any distance triathlon than run around in stinking puddles.  Still whatever floats your boat.
