Running 55:32 [1] 6.8 mi (8:10 / mi)

Achilles better if not entirely happy. Plan is too have a few very easy days. Hills and long hard runs really seem to cause grief. If I am going to run marathon can manage without hills , but need long runs. Reps on the flat are ok, so will try and concentrate on these and skip hill reps, as was after Tuesday's hills that it got really sore. Did a very gentle run on the snow, beautiful morning. Built three snow men too, does this count as cross training?

Running 1 [3]
(rest day)

Enforced rest not quite ticking injured box , but Achilles is not happy. If not improving will be last bit of attack pointing for a while . The thought of Cross training is already depressing , but cannot face typing it up afterwards!

Running 1:54:54 [3] 18.04 mi (6:22 / mi)

Parked by Yorkshire bridge , ran around reservoirs with a bit if an add on . Gorgeous day , started steady and then speeded up on way back . Aiming for marathon pace garmin was all over the place so god knows what I was running . Much nicer starting off fresh felt quite good. Perfect running weather if a little icey in places.
Only down side after sitting down for the afternoon at work, Achilles really sore and hobbling tonight .

Experimenting with trying long run tomorrow, starting a bit fresher rather than with sore legs. Can only fit run in tomorrow so had to miss Hallamshire session tonight which is a shame. Lovely clear morning for run to work though .

Running 1:07:00 [2] 9.4 mi (7:08 / mi)

Run around Dam Flask with Rob and Oli. Lovely cold still morning. Good to have some more company, perhaps this is the future with more of us running at this time. Or perhaps not.
1 PM

Running 34:20 [2] 5.1 mi (6:44 / mi)

Quick run at lunch time up from Damflask to High Bradfield and then back down and around Damflask. Running up to High Bradfield, jumped to sound of a shotgun going off. Thought it must be a tractor, but then ran past 6 blockes in fields with their dogs and shotguns under arm. Not sure what they were shooting at, looked like a seen out of Miss Marple. Is this legal? I didn't stop to ask them.
