Keep on running.
JayC, I found that very funny....thanks for posting.
Solent, I feel the pain - its very frustrating. Hope its sorts itself for you fella.
AGF: Injury is temporary, glory is forever.
Love that comment.
No running from me at the mo shoulder still playing up a bit however doing loads of stretching.
Fiona nice 10m
15West hope you shake them off soon
SR - hope you get better soon. Gobi unfortunately is no longer with us...fell over and something bad to his ankle. You can catch up with him on Fetch...
HM hope the shoulder eases
I should do more of this "day off" malarkey...went out today and did 9m at mara HR (80%max)...turned out to be 8.13mm!!!!
Hope you are back running soon SR.
Another day of sunshine here jayc but forecast for heavy rain pretty much from tomorrow all weekend so decided to just run instead of doing a speed session. 7 miles through the woods, really nice. Just back from a walk and about to do some core work & stretching.
Hope the shoulder improves with the stretching HM4.
Cross post Teknik - great run!!
Fiona - sounds like a good run... won't be long before we're all in thermals and rain jackets again!
Teknik - nice 9 miler; good pace!
7 mile cross country today. Proper cross country too. Managed to convince two regular running partners that one of the, er, muddier routes would be fine today. In reality it was wetter than I've ever seen it before! A nice section of 40m through cattle softened calf deep mud, a couple of stream crossings, wet grass, woodland climbs and more nettles than you could shake a stick at [one narrow section there was no avoiding them, legs are still tingling now].
Fiona- well done on the run- sounds good
SR- hope you recover soon...
jayc- sounds like fun
Tek- enjoy the taper
5.1m for me tonight- even went sub 9min miling, legs starting to work again
Hello all - so, what races have you all got coming up? Teknik, you tapering for a marathon at moment? No races for me in forseeable...was thinking of Tatton park half on 4th Nov but it's full now, so my next will be Stockport 10 in Dec and Helsby half in Jan.
Still not ran since Chester - may go to gym today and do some other cardio stuff and actually (try) lift a few weights. First jog planned for tomorrow, but also might have the weekend off running and let the missus have a sleep in while I do child duties, I owe her.
Not sure what plan to follow for London next spring. For Chester followied P&D 5o to 70 mi schedule to the letter pretty much, and it did work for me, so was thinking of the same schedule with weekends same as the ~100mi a week schedule.
Also - dont' know if anyone on here knows...but apparently there are GFA places for VLM, and then there are Fast GFA places!...
15west, Welcome. Your very speedy I think Jason/NP know all about GFA starting pens at VLM....
Well I ran 30 miles last week and already done 20 miles this week....the slow trail to return to running has started. Enjoyed the 10K i ran this morning
Gym today - upper body push, as that's all I feel confident I can do without aggrivating my back. Although the pain is starting to lift. Wish it would get lost, as I have a new toy (heart rate monitor) and new trainers I want to play with!

Fiona nice 7 in the woods
jay great cross-country run!
15West I'm up for Frankfurt - 17 days left...
AGF - thanks, will be taking it really easy in the last week. Great to see you're getting back to(wards) normal
jason nice running...must feel to you like you're walking
Stuart- GREAT to hear you've got a HRM...I promise it will make a massive difference
HM hope the stretching is helping
8m steady at 75%max (8.51mm), then 5.67m up and down some muddy hills with the club...all ok.
SM - Hopefully your back is on the mend, take care.
AGF - Good to hear your back out there.
TEK - Impressive. You are going to nail it in Frankfurt.
I have had a very bad week. The anti-biotics I got on Friday had a bad effect on my system, first dose daily ok- second dose things started going downhill and by the last dose I was basically unfit to do anything. A result of which was falling downstairs on Monday night Needless to say running wasn't happening!! But today for the first time I feel relatively 'normal' so have been out and done 15k. I took it nice and easy but wind and hills made it feel quite hard. Hopefully just not fully recovered, and in a few days everything will be 'ok'. Only 10 days to go!!
jayc that's a proper off road run!
Been at the Green GFA start the last few years but not sure about Fast GFA times?
AGF fantastic that your miles are building up again. I'm hoping to get my highest mileage month since January when it all went wrong.
Nice new gear Stuart, hope you get to use it soon. My new Fastwitches arrived today so did my 200 session in them. They feel a bit firmer than the last few pairs I've had but they are so bright (blue/yellow) they are bound to be fast!!
Nice run Tek, low HR!
kaz good that you are getting back out and better now than later in the month. Take it easy and recover well. Best to make it to the start line.
Spin class for me this morning then a short interval session; 16 lots of 200m at 16k/hr with 60s recoveries. 6 miles in total. Aviemore 10k on Sunday for me then a few races to choose from, just have to decide which to do - 10k, 5 mile trail run or a couple of HMs. Not really done much distance recently so may just stay with the shorter stuff Then a 10 mile run in December before VLM training starts .
21-Oct Demead 10k HM4
Think it is. I've got the club championships on 21 October I don't think I'll get a pb unlike last year however will be happy with anything under 70 min. (pb is 1hr 4min something)
Hope you recover quickly.
That'd good news.
Well done on everyone's training
