  1. RUN
    great By the sea 5 mi 01:27 17:18 pace

    Lovely evening -- but was dark by the time I finished -- should start a bit earlier I guess!

  2. RUN
    great rainbow bridge at dusk 6 mi 01:45 17:27 pace

    Ooh, that felt great ... a perfect outing with faithful hound, and the perfect distance. I do get some lower back pain -- suggestions, anyone, for core strengthening exercises?

      Great 6 miles Kirsten, its such a lovely time of the day to get out. The back pain should ease the fitter you get, so keep up with the walking/running. I did a 30 minute dance/exercise class that had 30 mins of stretches after focusing core strength, that really helped my fitness.

    great sunset by the sea 4 mi 01:07 16:50 pace

    Ooh, that felt great! Like the cool of the evening.

  5. RUN
    great nice little buzz 3.1 mi 00:51 16:26 pace

    Gettin' there -- feels great!

  6. RUN
    great to A55 exit 2.5 mi 00:45 17:58 pace

    Slow and fun -- it felt wonderful. Cool, breezy day by the sea. My goal at the moment is to increase frequency of runs more than either speed or distance, so this was fine!

  7. RUN
    good nice 'n easy 2 mi 00:35 17:41 pace

    Very undemanding, short run, slow even for me. But even a little makes a big difference in how I feel -- a real tonic.

  8. RUN
    alright Rhos on Sea 2 mi 00:32 15:58 pace

    v. low on mojo lately but made myself do it. Now it's done -- hey, that was good! Why didn't I do this before...

      Well, did Conwy Half last year and plan to repeat. (And hopefully improve.) Time to start getting ready! Might try some shorter ones but haven't looked into it yet.

    Gorgeous day 4 mi 01:04 16:02 pace

    Great run by the sea, and faster than the last one. (A relative concept in my case, but still...)

  10. RUN
    great ROS - Old Colwyn - ROS 4 mi 01:07 16:40 pace

    Spring outing -- felt great! Nice to be back.

    great Baby steps 3 mi 00:48 16:00 pace

    First outing since HM in November. Easing my ageing self back into it! Faster next time, I'm sure.

    tired Conwy half marathon 13.2 mi 03:39 16:34 pace

      The weather was awesome today. Glad you got out and enjoyed it. I've been bitten by the not eating enough thing a couple of times. The key is timing. Have a decent snack or light meal a couple of hours before running. It makes a world of difference.

  15. RUN
    good Great Orme 4.3 mi 01:13 16:53 pace

    Uphill section of Conwy HM. This is one a$$-kicking gorgeous route! Actually a lot easier than doing Bryn Euryn, which has much steeper trails. But challenging enough -- hope to do it again soon... read more

      Rhos on Sea clock to Rainbow Bridge and back. Really, I felt like I had the stamina to do 10, but I thought it wise to go easy on my joints to avoid injury (I'm neither young nor skinny...)

      Yep, the Conwy is in the plan. The Orme is definitely worth a look as much for the decent as for the rise. Increasing cadence on the decent while letting your HR drop gives free speed :)

      Good Luck:

      Are you doing the Conwy? If so it might be a good idea to do some hills or the Orme at least once. I agree with Sheldon - a 20 min run will HELP sort things out! Always did for me :)

    Tried a fartlek run for first time, liked it a lot. No pressure, just fun -- I think this is my new religion!

      they surprised me, too, with being more fun than I anticipated. I also like that they give me confidence that I can run a short 'spurt' and then recover from it, e.g. a short steep uphill in a race.

      Good idea Kirsten. Fartleks can be fun, just need to warmup enough before hand.

    Longest run to date for me, but took it slow and felt just fine. Lots of fun. (Thanks for the company, J.!)
