Nice running everyone - I could have said soldier there, but I am resisting the lure of Stephen's metaphors.

7.25 recovery miles for me today (in the rain), and if it wasn't for how close this challenge was I could easily have binned it.

Stephen, Emmy and DE - come up and vist me, the view is lovely from up here

Soldier YoungPup - good going! This is the kind of mentality that we need amongst our runners!

Stephen - It's all a sense of good sporting achievement, no?

Good running everyone!

Some interesting stats from my train journey....

The top 10 has 6 RW, 4 FE
The top 20 is 10 each
The top 30 is 15 each
The top 40 is 19 RW, 21 FE
The top 50 is 24 RW, 26 FE
The top 60 is 29 RW, 31 FE
The top 70 is 34 RW, 36 FE
We have 5 of the 8 back markers

This shows that it is really close this month, but if everyone focuses on overtaking the Fetch runner just above them, I reckon we've got them on the run

Hold on a sec JD did you not say that you are a teacher?

How is that milage even possible!!??


Simples- I run at 5.30 am and 7-9pm- and go to bed early.... ! Saying that, I can't do the same mileage for spring marathons because of work- but for the next 6 weeks I don't have to run at 5.30 anymore

Recovery day today- 5ish miles early on, few more to follow in a little while

Like I said android. One that needs to sleep, which was never in Bladerunner, but android all the same.

6 and a bit run. Short hill repeats book ended by easy runs.

Tomorrow I rest or do a recovery run or go to the pub.

14.7m for me as a run home tonight...... Felt like blooming hard work.

Only 2.95 tonight to keep things ticking over. RW still over 2 miles a runner ahead.

Top running team.

Just over 8 miles trail tempo effort this evening. Rest day tomorrow and a pretty light weekend unfortunately... next weekend I have a little 100 mile jog around the lakes to add to team RW total

Stephen/YP/ WiB- good running lads!!

2 recovery runs for this android- 11.32miles. Lie in tomorrow!!

WiB- Don't forget to add the miles/fractions over 100 from your ultra, buddy!

19/07/2012 at 21:48

WiB 100 miles?

Please tell me your taking a book for miles 26- 60?

I'm bored out of my mind after 13 miles so may never run a marathon unless I think I can manage it in 3hours or under.

I really dont want to be the first runner to fail to finish th VLM on the grounds "I got bored stopped for a cup of tea and couldnt face the rest"

Dont laugh it could happen

19/07/2012 at 22:26

No book Stephen... will have enough to think about

20/07/2012 at 19:32

Its Friday and all is quiet on the running front.

Tomorrow the push forward!

To Victory!

Rest day for me also......
20/07/2012 at 20:38

7 miles recovery today in just under an hour then hopefully a biggish weekends running.

20/07/2012 at 20:50

Well done everyone- the gap has opened to an average of 3m

13.07m at 7.32 av followed by 0.52 warm down in the sun for me this evening

20/07/2012 at 22:08

Some warm weather running at last?.... just in time for Lakeland 50 and 100 too

Rest day today and pretty much for next 7 days, barring a short long run tomorrow. Will make up for it next Saturday I hope

Is there anyway to delete a run you've logged? I just added a 7.72 mile run but didn't add the dot and it's come up as 772.00. I can't seem to change it to 7.72.

15 odd miles done as of now.

Amazing what your prepared to do at 5:30am after a few pints of Timothy Taylors a burger and chips, a fish supper, and only 4 hours sleep.

We are dropping behind in the average by the way.

Where are all you high milage guys?

Im only a 5k, 10k sort of bloke
