Got to the track to find an unscheduled visit of 50 odd school children. End result was that my 3x1600m with 400m recovery got shifted off-road to my normal loop with increased wu/cd. Another 6.23. Over a mile ahead per runner now.

Tom1759 like your use improvised munitions ( im going to keep this military metaphor going until it breaks

Managed a 7 mile advancement with a not lethal neck wound inflicted by some Fetchie sniper last night. Now only 27 miles and a  few Fetch wretches between me and Kate F and YP. Drunken is just behind me battling a rear guard action but I expect him to be move up soon Emmy Bug, Juggler, Franny, Elli and Mathschick are a mere 5-11 miles aways. I can hear their guns from here.

Looking good, guys- just noticed that we are an average 2m ahead at the moment Keep it up!

Starting to build my miles towards peak over the next 5 weeks....

5.18m recovery run this morning and a slow, but not easy 15.02m tonight in 1.59.01 (the 300m ascent, including a 0.75m constant hill, and yesterday's tempo miles made it seem tougher. 0.26m warm down to finish off the day at 20.46

Stephen - I'm Down but not dead. Hamstring is playing up a little so switched runs today.

Decided on a gentle 3 mile run that turned into 4 miles. Now I'm going the lure the fetches not a false sense of security by being silent for one da before hitting the with this weekends activity.... Ok.... I should clarify that it womtbe nearly as impressive as Jason d's activities... But it'll be 4 straight days of running.

8.36 logged for me. New PB on a 10k, then a recovery jog home. Plus, I clocked up my 1,000th mile for 2012 

Some excellent running going on guys. Keep it up!

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

Nice work JD and the rest of the team  7 recovery miles for me tonight.

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

Good plan YP! Although I have two to catch.... now that'll be interesting

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.


19/07/2012 at 20:05
14.7m for me as a run home tonight...... Felt like blooming hard work.
19/07/2012 at 20:39

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

19/07/2012 at 21:20
