    10k after work tonight in almost complete pitch black from Marlow to Cookham and back, is amazing how not being able to see very much (i had a basic headtorch on) makes you concentrate on your running.

    love not working in London anymore!

    @Greenbank afraid i dont have data, but i have some anecdotal evidence im a little bit shorter than you so bear that in mind when talking about weight.

    Its hard to separate the effect of weight loss and training as in my case they are inextricably linked, as is muscle to fat ratio, but i used to be about 80-85kg (that was after losing some weight too!) and i'm now 70-75kg, i've gone from running 6min kms, to running from 4-5min kms depending on the distance, and i can promise you not carrying the extra weight makes things a lot easier!

    Having said that smallfurry is a heavy little nugget, but is mostly muscle, and he's not too slow!

    First night of the myofascial? release programme, I was basically crying!

    Apparently it'll get easier!

    Just had a proper physiology done analysis with video, pressure plates and lots of poking, the answer is that I'm a bit wonky, and (unsurprisingly as a money making business) but fairly sensibly in reality they think that fixing me in stages is going to be more beneficial than giving me a huge list of things to do.

    First task is to lengthen my leg muscles to enable them to stretch and take the load rather than just absorb the impact as they do now.

    The good news is that I have the right kind of shoes and already have a tennis ball and a foam roller, I just now have some fairly complex, specific movements in order to improve my elasticity...

    Time for a hill rep session now though...

    Project become a runner is under way...

    Sorry @TW the 10 has gone I'm afraid...

    I still have a 910, but that's probably a bit more than you want to spend...

    Paced at the kingston breakfast run today, and CEP donated a whole pile of socks for us which was an added bonus, really enjoy the event as it's very slick and people are always so nice and polite at the end coming back to thank pacers!

    Good feelings, and 16 miles felt pretty easy!

    Winner!

    15 gp4000s!

    That's some serious loyalty! What kind of mileage do you get from them out of interest?
