Added my 13.1 for Friday and 8.08 for this morning. Not too many miles before Wednesday, as it's my only 10k of the season(!) But will be back onto it after then. Nice to see how much the challenge has moved since I last checked in. Keep it up  RW!! 

Waves to all

Only 10k of the season? You have to enjoy it then I've just added mine as well- we're now on a 64.30 average as opposed to 60.99 average for the Fetchies. Keep it up everyone!

- didn't realise chain mail was so heavy! 11.25m for the day squeezed in either side of the fun- we're edging ahead at the moment

JD - Surely any miles in Chainmail are worth double

Rest day for me today. One of two this week followed by an easy weekend which means a reasonably low mileage week for me coming up.

JD - Looks like you are going very well again. Top effort dude.

No run yesterday, hangover defeated me. Ran 11.27 today instead.

WiB- Actually had a twinge in my back yesterday and today- nearly didn't run this evening, but it seems better for the sloooowwww run and the lengthy stretching and rollering afterwards 2 recovery runs for 11.57m

We're ever so slightly behind again, guys- no more hangovers, Tom

Fetchies are back in front  - come on everyone.

I'd like to mention that this morning I had one of the worst runs of the month so far. 8.5 miles in the cold, wind and rain.. I got to 5 miles and almost turned back but thought "every little helps" and continued in the final mini loop.

I got home and I was thoroughly drenched through!

Aching a little this morning, but as the fetchies are winning again I'll try get out this evening.

Hi all,

This is much more enjoyable when it's close, so let's all keep up the momentum, and see if we can eke out a few more miles (without anyone injuring themselves or jeapordizing any training plans or races, etc....)

I did 8.4 miles at lunchtime, including some VOmax intervals (blooming tough, but perversely enjoyable). I did 5*600m with 90 seconds recovery, and about halfway through I realised that 90 seconds probably should have been a bit longer.... However, stuck at it, and then did a nice 3 mile cool down just to make it over 8 miles in total

Nice work YP. Agreed much more fun when it's close.

6.23 recovery slog for the team.

17/07/2012 at 20:36


Well done YP

5.11m recovery run this morning for me and a cracking undulating run tonight 10m with 5m tempo in 1.07.04. Think I ran some parts too fast tbh- either that or I need to run a 60 min 10miler (may be a while- lol!) splits: 7:54 7:39 7:16 6:22(uphill and into wind) 6:03 6:00 5:59 5:54 (tailwind) 6:49 7:06. Seem to be on track at the moment with 12 weeks to go before Chester

WE're ahead again

Great work YoungPup!

I agree - it's definitely more interesting now it's gotten so close. I'll try and get out tomorrow morning for a recovery run. Won't be too long but it'll be worth it to help the team out.

Do I get any points for aquarunning laps of the pool?

17/07/2012 at 21:32

Crickey Jason - you're flying! How do you manage splits like that?!

17/07/2012 at 22:55

Another rainy Tuesday run. Pulled out the distance on my hill rep (wet grassy hills, v.slippery as is the norm of late) workout with a nice undulating warmup.

17/07/2012 at 23:30

10m tempo this evening on some rolling trail. Increased effort in the last mile for 05:17. Taper time so didn't want to run too hard ;)

17/07/2012 at 23:54

7 and a bit miles run.

Rear guard action along with Emmy_Bug into the Fetchies camp. So with luck will meet up with drunkeneuphoria by sundown tomorrow.

18/07/2012 at 14:55

Cheers Stephen and Emmy..... as I'm stuck in no mans land  not looking good, surrounded by fetchies.... need to push on to the advanced party
