|Well having had an awful couple of months at work I've just felt too rotten to run and the waistline has been growing ever since but finally got out on the tarmac this afternoon, slow as anything naturally but good to get out there. Did anyone else catch this story: https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.bbc.com/sport/56720358.amp Absolutely awesome, 312 miles in 75 hours!|

@freddymercurystwin christ that looks mental.
Well done on getting out there again though. Doesn't matter how fast or how far. Main thing is you did it.
I've started doing hills again after flats for a couple of years. God that was a wake up call when I started a few weeks ago.
Going to try a big hill sesh again tomorrow morning. My legs are protesting though.
@wuntyate Good man, I live by the sea so (unless I do a really boring run) my regular run always includes some bastard hills, I think over the years its stood me in good stead.

Looks like a bastard race that!
Not much a hills fan here, do one biggish hill twice (outward and return) on my longer 10 mile to half marathon runs. But try to keep it flat otherwise.
After running for 2 years and pretty consistently (2 or 3 runs most weeks) since last september, I finally bought some proper running shoes. Paying over 100 for some shoes felt ridiculous, but wow they certainly are an improvement.
Went out for a 5km push for a PB on Monday and took 30 seconds off with a 22 minute 34 second run. About to go out for my 3rd 5km this week! Will probably do a shorter weekend run of 10km on Sunday and see of 9 can get sub 50 minutes again (will keep the toute flat for that).
