Decided to do my training run as Henfield half this morning. It was more interesting than running on my own, but blooming hot!!! Consequently, slowest half of the year, despite being pretty flat. But it's another 13.1 done

Juggler- well done- tough going in the heat. I suffer really badly.....

Did a very poor 3.3mile trail run on Saturday - legs were just so heavy and tired. had a quiet day yesterday and today but plan to pick back up tomorrow.

Hope to have a few good runs next week on holiday in Isle of Wight, hoping a change in scenery will give me a boost. My two eldest daughters (7 and 5) are starting to get quite interested in my runs - not necessarily positive my 5 year-old's comment the other day was "Daddy, why do your runs take so long?".

CR- LOL at kids' response My 5 year old can't quite accept that I do all this training and still don't win VLM. And I have to keep coming back from races with "prizes" that I've won- normally in the form of sweets

5.2ish recovery run this morning, got soaked again....

The fetchies are closing the gap, peeps.... Let's open it up again

Thanks Jason. 

Just a 4 mile recovery for me today, but felt better than expected, so hopefully get a few more miles in tomorrow.

13.4 mile on Sunday and a 5.3 mile tempo run tonight, really enjoyed last weeks tempo run felt good, back to normal tonight bloody horid

Another 5 miles for me. I actually felt like I had it back in my legs tonight! A lovely 5 and a bit miles to add to the bank.

Come on everyone, Dig deep if you can!

S3- well done- nice miles

Glad you're feeling fresher, Emmy. Well done on the 5.xx

Out again this afternoon for another recovery plod- 11.36m for the day

Feeling a bit happier with 5 and a bit miles this morning but legs seemed to struggle a bit.

21/08/2012 at 10:54

15.47 yesterday. 200m repeats today. So a limited mileage. Haven't looked for a while, wow the gap is closing!

Slow 7 mile tonight. Got soaked through love running in the rain.

Starting to pick up here- well done, guys- let's finish the job off

5.09m recovery this morning and 10.13m this afternoon- 4.xxm on the road finishing on the track for 5 x 0.5m off 90 sec recoveries, 2m warm down

Another 6.5 for me today, including 4 miles at what I hope to be my race pace next weekend.

Jason - in response to your question, I'm doing the Kent Coastal marathon on the 2nd September. This will be my first marathon, and I intentionally picked a very small key local event, as I didnt fancy a big city so will be interesting to see how it goes. However, I have really enjoyed training for it (I loosely followed the P&D 55mile a week schedule), and althought I've set a target, I'll be happy just to run it and finish...

These monthly challenges have been a massive help for me with the motivation, so couldn't have come at a better time for me

YP- all the best for the mara I prefer the smaller maras myself- although both have their charms. Sure you'll do well after your build up

21/08/2012 at 22:18
Hmm. Haven't put any mileage in yet for this month.
22/08/2012 at 10:25

Nothing yesterday. Was having a right rubbish day at work and walked to the track having checked the schedule to see if anyone had booked it. Turned up and there was about 60 school kids doing some sort of coaching session there. Grumbled my way back to the office. Hopefully out this evening, but good to see the gap opening back up.

@Fitrunningcat - have you not run? or just forgot to enter the mileage?

I did a nice little 5 miler this morning and it was lovely and fresh out there (for once!).


22/08/2012 at 18:04
9 mile at Derwent tonight, don't think I have ever got so wet
22/08/2012 at 19:26

FRTC- As long as you remember to log it!

5.07m recovery run for me this morning. Quite glad that the plan was to run the afternoon's 15 nice and  slow cos my legs were still feeling yesterday's intervals (and Sunday's 24 still probably). So very easy on the CV system, not so easy on the legs. 15.14m= 20.21 for the day

7ish miles tonight, feeling okay and no niggles post NDW
