Well done, a good distance too. I quite like social runs with the odd stop for a chat, or a picture. Makes it all really enjoyable.

I love that post run feeling, a mix of endorphins, serotonin, and tiredness!

I was going to run this morning but failed to get out of bed in time. I'm meeting someone tomorrow morning with mountain bikes and our dogs for a ride in a local piece of forest. I'll see about a run on Monday I hope.

It's been a bit of a mixed week for me - I went running on Tuesday, and my ankle gave way after less than a mile of easy running. No amount of stretching would stop it from hurting after a couple of paces, so I had to stop. Wednesday I felt it just walking, and it slowly got better through the week, but no running.

Sunday ... I had entered a local 10k race. As my wife was also running in it, I didn't have the option of not going, so I thought I'd give it a go. I could feel the ankle complaining at me, and thought about pulling out continuously for the first 7k. Then I realised I was just using it as an excuse and got on with it. Very happy to finish, and my ankle is fine this morning.

It's the randomness which gets me - I used to like going out on group runs, but at the moment I've got no idea whether I'll finish or not so don't want to let others down. There's a social run going out along the Ridgeway on Wednesday ... I'm going to give it a go. Wish me luck!

Two runs this weekend after an 11 month lay-off. Had knee problems last year and ended up being scanned and physio'd then rested.


Only short runs 3k or so but I soon found how unfit I've become.

daktulos - good luck


Red ones - Ease in steady.


I hadn't been for nearly two weeks and even that short a time frame was enough to notice a difference.

Good man for sticking with it! Try and stay off the tarmac and on the trails if possible, much kinder to your joints especially if you are recovering from or nursing a previous injury. Trail running will strengthen your ankles too, which will help to support the joint. Keep going and let's see some of the routes you're running (Strava?).

Well done! Remember that running mantra -"run/rest/run/rest". Same thing again, try and run trails rather than tarmac and give the knee a chance. Get your times and routes up here. I always find it really interesting to see how others are doing.

Am I the only canicross runner here so far?

Yep. Her in doors don't think much of dogs.
Which is a shame.

We're dog sitting a friend's dog this week, a black crossbreed bitch called Sootie. She and Mabel are best buddies and are an absolutely demon Canicross team. I shall be running with them both in the morning.

Out this morning for just under 8 miles with Mabel and Sootie on a nice mix of terrain. Allt, afon a goedwig: trans. Hill, river, and forest.

Legs are feeling it a bit now and both dogs are flaked out. The middle section of the run alongside the river is mostly pretty flat, but there's my regular big hill at the start, a climb of around 290ft in half a mile and then another couple of smaller climbs in the last 2 miles.

Just a walk for me and the hounds tomorrow I think!

I had hoped to get out this evening, but I've strained my back today at work and can now hardly move. Still at least I have alcohol to dull the pain.
