Mace- well done on the miles. Enjoy the 10k
Time for me to start to build the miles again after my rest period- not too much yet though- And introduce twice weekly tempo runs ( or 10m races!)

Mace - Nice mileage

Fiona - Nice training. We were walking at Ben Vorlich (at Lochearnhead) yesterday, we really had no idea how snowy it would be, ah well it was good fun, despite affecting our plans.


LSR should be today, but I think rest day is more likely due to the weather. It looks ridiculously windy outside. I might try tomorrow morning.

Well done guys.

Looks like I'll be starting back running in a couple of weeks.  I want to start with some stretching first.

Gosh, quiet in here tonight! Hope everyone's not out running, it's blowing a gale here.

Sounds like a nice walk Stuart. Cairngorm has a bit of snow now - hope it stays on the hills!

Since yesterday was an easy run day I did 10 400's tonight at 16k/hr off 100s recoveries. 6 miles in total. Have not done 400's since August and certainly not that pace!

Nice and Speedy Fiona - Well done.

Good luck with the come back HM4

Hope you enjoyed the rest day stuart.

...its a rest day for me today

20/11/2012 at 10:56
Jason that was very good of you, we'll done on the run.
Fiona great session.
HM4 that's good news.
Maserati enjoy the 10k

Like AGF I sort of had a rest day, went for a swim ( bought a runner sleeve that covers the arm) but only managed 22 lengths but nice to be in the water then had a massage so my legs feel a little beat up this morning. Will get out later for an easy 6 miles.
20/11/2012 at 12:47

Only 22 lenghts Don't think I could do 1!!

Glad your injury isnt hindering your training too much NP!

Crikey Fiona thats fast. I can only dream.......

AGF - Congrats on the PB,  canna mind if I said that already!

Jason - Well done, and very generous of you donating the prize back!

HM4 - Hope the recovery is going well, good luck with getting back running.

Stuart - Jealous that you get to that places on a weekly basis....Lochearnhead is lovely. Slightly concerned at the moment about BF's parents who stay in Comrie.

Nothing much happening here, slowly building the miles up again. Still got a few health problems so taking it easy.  Time is on my side........just now!

Lol Kaz1 neither did I two years ago but i was doing 3 miles a week in the summer.

6 miles recovery this afternoon legs feel battered after the massage yesterday.....

20/11/2012 at 19:42

Legs feeling battere here too, NP Just an easy 8m jog for me this evening cruising around different parts of the town

Fiona- nice session

21/11/2012 at 12:29

Very easy 10 miles this morning legs still a bit sore.


21/11/2012 at 17:36


Well done.

21/11/2012 at 19:10

Bright starry night and 5.25 done with Elspeth

21/11/2012 at 19:38

NP- well done on the 10. Hope the legs recover soon

OH- well done

Nice track session tonight with clubmate for a change- could still feel the weekend's 2 races in my legs, but the company definitely helped!. I did: 2.02m warm up (6.32, 5.54) 3.01m tempo (5.56, 6.00, 5.58) 1 min off, 2m tempo (5.56, 6.00) 1.03m warm down (7.18, 13)

21/11/2012 at 20:29

Knee a little better - 8.56m tonight with the club.

Well done everyone on their training.

22/11/2012 at 16:46

Another 5.59m this morning, muddy, hilly, HR all over the place, meh...

22/11/2012 at 18:04

Well done guys.


22/11/2012 at 19:52
Car's MOT tomorrow, so took the car to garage this evening and ran 4.3 m home through flooded roads!
22/11/2012 at 19:53

Fiona - Nice intervals

NP - Good running and swimming. Not a great fan of the swimmimg myself, then again that's probably because I'm rubbish at it...

kaz - Hope you're ok, and hope your BF's parents are too. Comrie looks a bit wild, nothing like what it was when I was through a few weeks ago

OH - Well done

Jason - 5.54 is warm up pace? Thats some mighty running!

Tek - Good stuff

HM - Are you close to starting to run again?


LSR has been hit on the head, forgot I was working 13 hour nights the past 2 days.

Wednesday am - Planned to do ~7.5 miles with 5-6x800, ended up with 3.5 slow (with 400 fast). Felt exhausted as soon as I started running fast, I think the long night at work was to blame.

Tonight - 2.1 mile warm up, 3 mile tempo (7.11, 6.55, 6.55) and 1.5 mile w/d. That was much better.

22/11/2012 at 20:28

Fiona great tempo session.

OH nice running, great on a clear night or morning.

Jason nice running great tempo session, I have no speed at all at the moment not 100% sure why..... I seemed ok two weeks ago and was getting some good sessions in but the legs are starting to feel ok again. Fingers crossed with the car

Nice running Teknik

SM6 Nice tempo session.
