Sorry guys, could be in a bit of trouble here, got 3 miles in to my run today before my calf got the better of me. Not sure how bad yet...

Tom- fingers crossed it's just a short term niggle....

20.52m for me today. Phew! It's hot out there!!!!!

Agree re the weather - it's lovely weather for sitting out in, bit tough for doing long runs in.

15.5 for me today, including an enjoyable Down Tow Up Flow half marathon (1hr 37)

Tom - hope the calf gets better soon. Take it easy, and don't run on it if it's not right... Without wishing to tempt fate, I think we've got this month in the challenge wrapped up

Hi Everyone,

I managed the runs on friday and saturday but due to logistics and issues with finding somewhere to take a shower - ive missed the run for today. i'll make it up tomorrow!

@Tom - hope the calf niggle isnt too bad

12 and 8 for me over the weekend. Rest day today and then only a couple of short runs during the week. Will make up for it at the weekend

5.2m recovery run this morning- forearms are bright red where i missed the suncream and legs feeling really stiff. Surprising how much difference the heat makes to recovery.... haven't logged the run yet, cos there's more to come later

No time for complacency, guys- the ultra fetchies have got some big miles to log....

Hi Gaz, frequently have runs like that. But usually can be attributed to weather, hydration, motivation, being a bit under the weather. Sure you'll bounce back fine.

Tom - Fingers crossed for you, rest if needed and back off the pacier stuff if you can run ok on it at a slower pace.

As per WiB, will make up for this weekends and weeks mileage reduction at weekend. What events have the Ultrafetchies got on JD?

Bloody h*ll, just looked at their page on stats feed, some mad miles going on and heres me tapering for 50!

But I think all bar one has logged these already and we have a good gap still - good team effort RW

They have a 100k and Kent 50 to put down I think DE. We can easily counter that with Lakeland this weekend

True WiB, assuming none of them are doing

Drunken Euphoria, cheers mate. Looking back I think it was a hydration issue, I look 500ml of liquid with me but I had to go to bed after the run and didn't feel "right" for a few hours afterwards with a mild headache.

Hi all, I posted my runs for the weekend and will aim to get out there tomorrow for a mid week long run... no where in comparison to most of you!

I'm just trying to do my bit

23/07/2012 at 15:00

I think I'm getting a little obsessed. I got invited to a 101st birthday party on Wednesday and my first thought was how I was going to have to rearrange my mid week long run!

23/07/2012 at 16:14

Gentle 3 miles for me today. Longer run tomorrow am.

23/07/2012 at 21:11

Gaz- I got through nearly 1.5l on my 20m in yesterday's heat. You could easily lose that and more on a hot day...

6.4m recovery tonight- felt surprisingly good- running faster than normal for same effort 11.6 for the day

24/07/2012 at 08:37

Morning all! a lovely 10 miles by the canals near my parents this morning. Absolutely beautiful start to the day but it's really warm at 7am!

24/07/2012 at 09:51

Well done, Emmy

10ish miles easy, except for 10 x100m sprints, before breakfast for me this morning - hot for sprinting even at 9am. Worked up an appetite for my 40g of All Bran and whey protein shake though. Recovery run later in the cool of the evening

Just signed up to this - not sure how much help I will be as a relatively new runner (first month of serious training), but as I am currently planning on doing my first marathon at the end of October I thought it might give me extra motivation.

Hope to do 50 miles minimum this month - 29ish done so far with 4 more runs planned before end of month.
