Morning all

5.2m recovery this morning- not raining yet Looking forward to 5000m heats today Women's long jump could be promising too for Team GB....More short stuff from me later

JD - Rain  whats that then? Not had much more than a shower here of late. 6m from me last night, a mere dribble of a few recovery miles tonight and 8-12 tomorrow, before an ultra at weekend No. 12 for the year (two up on last years total), for this and a few non-running reasons, life is good

A very nice 11.3 round Derwent reservior today. Going to Endinburgh in the morning for a 2 day liquid marathon . so will be a bit short on miles this week

I've always found it best to have some heavy "fluid intake practice sessions" as part of my training program .

6.23 done here, 4 pushing hard.

DE- Lucky you- flash floods here lately....

6.4m recovery for me tonight-so 11.44 for the day. Legs still regretting the decision to run 20m so fast last Sunday. Started to feel better towards the end though- wish tomorrow's 5k was a week later though

One downside to my weight loss- Had to dig my hand in my pocket today- no trousers or shorts that fit the new me in the house. Didn't go too mad though- in case I have to replace them again

Hello all!

I'm doing the GNR too.   Logged my run today and have found myself in 3rd place.

Jason d - I'm intrigued by your big mileage, which you seem to maintain throughout the year.  What are you training for at the moment or are you just ticking over?


09/08/2012 at 09:08

Minni- Big is relative. Training for Chester marathon on Oct 3rd and Snowdon mara on Oct 27th at the moment- hence the higher mileage 

4m loosener for me this morning- 5k race later

09/08/2012 at 17:53

6.46 on the track at lunch. Maybe more later.

Hiya everyone, a relaxed 5 miles from me. Was completely amazed by today's run.... And I've been immortalised in stone... Well concrete. It shall forever be known that Emmy-Bug ran through this area...and didn't notice that the concrete was still wet :/

How is everyone else doing?

8.13 bringing the daily total to 14.59. Rest tomorrow.

09/08/2012 at 21:12

Ran an undulating, but fast, 5k today. Boiling hot evening for running, but finished 4th and 2nd M40 in a new shiny (just) sub 18 PB of 17.55. Happy enough with that in the middle of 100m+ training and no speedwork yet

Mission accomplished 11.03m for the day

09/08/2012 at 22:12

Super fast Jason, well done mate. Also did a fast 5k+ (3.2m) on undulating trails, tracks and roads during session and happy with pace considering I don't run fast much. 9.7 total. Day and a half rest now before the Long Tour of Bradwell.

09/08/2012 at 23:26

DE- bet your 5k was more fun than mine. Good luck with the intriguingly named Long Tour

(scuttles off to google....)

10/08/2012 at 08:39

That's a great time Jason! Well done! That's only a time that i could dream about.

10/08/2012 at 09:11

DE- Googled- sounds fab!!! Best of luck with it!

Emmy- thanks

5.2 recovery this morning 13ish planned for later. Have a good one, peeps!

Quiet on here- must all be out running

5m am and 13m done this afternoon and, boy, was it hot!!! 30c according to my car- but it only goes up to 30....Even worse- I left my drink behind!!! Managed to find a Lucozade Sport in the boot of the car- but was gone after 10m and I was glad to get back! Nice and sloooowwww 8.03av after yesterday- slow, but not too easy after yesterday's 5k....

Just decided this morning to take jd junior to Legoland in Windsor for a few days- leaving on 8 am train Monday and returning Wednesday afternoon. Off to plan running routes now...

Thames towpath= 180m long. Windsor great park= miles and miles of running

10/08/2012 at 20:22
Hi Jason, I'll be out there tomorrow.. Today I just needed a rest (i feel bad for saying that seeing how much you run!).

I'm from Windsor way soyou're spoilt for choice. What sort of distance. Are you looking for? I normally do the thames towpath as I love running by the river but you'll love Windsor great park if you like hills. I used to start near windsor, head through to virginia water lake and back round. It can get a bit windy but you'll have some of the best views of the local area.

Alternatively, if you head in the other direction towards maidenhead, you'll have some nice flats to run through.

I'm trying to work out how t do my 22 miler tomorrow as it'll be a scorcher. 2x loops of 11 miles stopping off at home to refresh water supplies or the full 22 and take enough money to pick up drinks along the way.
10/08/2012 at 21:18

Emmy- rest is important

As for Windsor- looks great Plans while I'm there are: Monday pm 6m and Tuesday 10m, so i'm thinking Monday round Virginia water lake starting from the Savill Garden and Tuesday- 5m out and back either direction along the Thames Good luck with the 22. I run with an inov8 hydration waist pack on LRs which carries up to 2l. Alternatively, if trying to run faster, I hide dropbags along the way on rural runs

GO MO FARAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DOUBLE OLYMPIC CHAMPION!!!!!!!!

10.02m for me today
