Not sure what happened to the last thread but still.

Just done my longest run for approximately 33 years. Just a touch over 30k from Rivelin to the very far end of Stocksbridge and back. 

I'm absolutely bollacksed and don't think I can get back downstairs.

 

lol

I've just started running again, 1km on Saturday, 1.3km on Sunday and 1.7km on Monday... I'm not recovering from anything other than being a lazy poopydoo for a few years so I'm starting small and going to try to build back up to running home from work (11km) regularly.

I've started doing a bit of training in preparation for the Manchester marathon next year. Mostly running in the early morning before breakfast but I'm not sure if I can keep up the enthusiasm for that all through the winter. 

Nothing else planned before this one yet but I might look for something else just to give me a target.

I did the Manchester Half Marathon yesterday in 1:54:26. Best time I’ve done the distance in but was hoping for a slightly better time considering the almost flat Course. I was absolutely bollacksed at the end though.

Percy Pud 10k next week, anyone else doing it?

 

No Percy Pud for me, did you do it?

 

I went for a lonely run today... good weather for it, much nicer that recent but still cool enough.

 

I've just had my best ever month and week in terms of distances but struggling to get above 10km per run, might be psychological.

Yes mate, managed to take 9 seconds off my 10k PB. Finished in 48:55.  

Youre getting some decent distance in.  

 

Excellent time for 10km that, well done. Seen a couple of people posting the t-shirts on Facebook, they look really nice this year... I think I only got a pudding when I did it!

 

I've tagged on to a running club which has given me a bit of motivation, I was leading the club distance for a while but then someone did a marathon and that just totally ruined it for me!
