Tek a very impessive pace indeed !!! that is the problem with club runs they do turn into races even if you dont want them to lol..I have decided for my mid week MLR on wednesday I shall run 3 miles to club DROP DOWN a group to run with the 9 s to 9-30s, who will end up doing 8.30s to 9s...rather than the 8.30s to 9s who will end up doing 8 to 8.30s....I am sure you know what I mean, do 7 with them then run 3 miles back.

Spark it makes all the difference doesn't it to have company for long runs nice 13 for you.

I met my brother for my 15 today he is a bit slower than me (and targeting 4.15) which I didn't mind anyway after yesterdays mara @ pace 12, he was scheduled 11 so we did 11 miles in 1 hour 45 ish then I did then last 4 @ 9s to finish my 15 in 2.22

61 miles for the week !!

Totally, problem is I don't know anyone that runs apart from my cousin and she couldn't live much further away in Brighton lol. Nice 15 from yourself

Spark are there any clubs near you.

Been stalking on fetch lol to see who logs there training there I found Fiona Tek NP and some P&Ders anyone here else log their training on there ?

I'd imagine so, I live in Hamilton,
Only ten miles from Glasgow. But I work away Monday to Friday so don't think I'd get the benefit.

Teknik nice group training.

Spark nice running even splits.

Fiona sounds like a nice 6 mile run.

HM4 iff you ran 5 times a week even if its only 4 or 5 miles it's the start of a plan for your 10k race

NN well done on your long run and 61 miles for the week build build build. You still need some photos on Fetch lol.

SM6 Nice running enjoy your medium long run tomorrow.

Just over 18 miles for me in the mist this morning, i ran the first 8 on my own then met up with my mate for the last 10 this breaks it up a little but after next weekend i'm on my own as he is going on holiday lucky sod lol.....

06/01/2013 at 14:27

NP- well done yourself

06/01/2013 at 14:55

NN - two very good runs - Well Done.  I am on Fetch too...

Fiona / NP / Jason.  Some very good long runs. You are three folk I look up to and have inspired my improvements !!

Enjoy tomrorow longer run Stuart and well done on a solid week. 

Spark - well done on your run. Did you not take the dog?

Tek - Well done with the tempo/race. Sounds liek it blew away a few cobwebs !!!!


A rest day for me. I have enjoyed. 62+ miles for the week for me - which I am pleased with. Anywhere near 50 Miles next week Will be pleasing too....especially if I race the parkrun next week which will reduce the mileage. 

06/01/2013 at 15:28
Some excellent running going on, and many are ramping up their weekly mileage,

Fiona, did you do the culloden 1746 run back in October, that race took in some of those hills at clava cairns.

12 slow miles for me today avgHR 136(71%), keep up the good running
06/01/2013 at 16:15
AGF nah never got her out.
NP nice run

Jason- cheeky get haha just because you're a machine. Nah I'm putting the mileage up weekly, don't want to put it up too quickly. Was going to be 14 miles but cut the run with my cousin back a mile :/
06/01/2013 at 16:37

Spark, nice running and very wise, slowly slowly catchy monkey

Tek - nice 3rd spot, looks like you're properly on the way back

Stuart - happy days when all the miles feel good, nice week  

Nurse = nice week ... and what a lovely thing to be able to do, long run with a sibling  I do all my miles on my own which i don't mind at all but it would be nice to do the occasional long run with someone.

NP - SNAP !!! my 18.2M run this morning was also in the fog/mist

Stewart - great HADDing

jason - impressive week all round, well done .... i'd wager you did the 18 with 1095m ascent carrying the medicine ball as well

Week 4 of P&D done, 62M .... i'll sleep like a baby tonight


06/01/2013 at 18:53

Nice run spark with a fast finish!

NN good that you're on Fetch too, nice to have company on some runs.

AGF that's such a nice thing to say - I don't think I've ever inspired anyone!!

SM good weekly mileage and nice running.

Amazing run and weekly mileage jason!

NP and mace nice 18s. Lots of high mileage weeks on here, 64.2 for me.

Stewart I did not do the 1746 and was too late to enter the 10k. I know the 1746 course very well so did not enter! The run today was on the moor at the other side of the viaduct, great views up there!



06/01/2013 at 19:44
Fiona, Yeah, I here what you're saying, those hills were tough, strangely I'm looking forward to doing it all again in 2013, and the views are to die for
