One of our hopes for the Guardian running blog is that lots of you will come here to share your tips, travails and experiences. So far it has been great: thanks to all of you who have mailed, tweeted and posted below the line.
One thing we would like to experiment with is a Monday debrief were readers can discuss how their running went at the weekend (because everyone runs at the weekend, right?). It might work. It might not. But we thought we'd give it a go.
So, are you in training for a spring marathon, and putting in some serious miles? Trying to work up to a new pace, or a new distance? Or just really enjoying the masochist pleasures of running around a muddy park in sub-zero conditions? Tell us all about your weekend run or runs, please.
Just to kick off – I'm training for the Reading Half Marathon in (gulp) less than three weeks, where I want to do a good PB. On Saturday I had a great track session, which according to Endomondo resulted in both a 5k and 10k PB – does a PB count when it's not in a race? – and on Sunday I put in a rather windy and cold 15-mile effort along the towpath of the Thames in south-west London, at 7'30 min/mile pace. Unlike last Sunday's weather, which felt like spring, everything seemed to be grey. Including my face by the end, I suspect. Was your run prettier?
Finally, as an aside, does anyone else find that rest days (essential though they may be) actually make you more hungry than running days?
