Its so hard when you are working so much? I also struggle with work-run balance. The key for me is getting to be early and getting a run in before work, otherwise I'm just too stuffed after a long day. Hope your knees get there eventually

I wouldn't usually work this much d_p but unfortunately it looks as though it will be ongoing until at least the end of December. I usually start at 0730hrs so no chance of a pre-work run at this time of year and if I just do an early shift (rare at the moment) I finish at 1400hrs but need to get home, eat and digest before thinking of a run - by which time it's getting dark again. I'm mostly working through until 1700hrs at the moment so not even a small chance of a run afterwards. On my feel all day too. Having said all of that it's my choice. I could say no and go back to three 0730-1400hr shifts a week, just doesn't feel right.

That's tough especially at this time of year LMH.

My calendar says it's 18 weeks to Manchester today! So I did my first "long run" of the season. Not really long, just 21km and a few minutes short of 2h as that was still my longest in 18 months and I didn't want to overdo it. Aerobically I'm feeling great, the legs don't have the running endurance though.

jda - I'm just clinging to the hope that things settle down soon but with no extra staff (or room for them to work) and the increasing numbers to vaccinate especially with the likely announcement of lowering the gap between jabs and the age groups I fear it won't be this year or maybe until then end of January so I'll need to tick over on two runs a week - weather permitting. Heavy snow this afternoon and freezing temps overnight so even if I wasn't working tomorrow it's unlikely I'd have been able to run.

No weather for running now, even more so if you're in the dark. I had to mince my way over some higher-lying icy sections and that was before today's additional snow.

Hope the workload doesn't overwhelm you. I agree it looks like you've got a busy time ahead, as far as the eye can see....

It was interesting running for me today. I ran this afternoon and so avoided running when it actually snowed. By this afternoon the snow had almost all gone but there were random bits that were still around and quite often it wasn’t clear why some stretches were icy but all around it was melted.

Pretty heavy snow/icy conditions here and I haven't tried running on it yet, had a couple of days on my wife's spin bike and little else! Hoping to get a session in somewhere this evening (may have to try a supermarket entry Rd?)

Fits quite well with a taper for the Percy Pud 10k next Sunday so not overly bothered by the weather interruption.

Got something to say?
