Cross post NP, another 7 miles!! You guys are really racking up the miles, I've just had a look at the league table.

NP- early days
10/01/2013 at 20:46
Another xp- well done, yourself, Fiona!

Is that a three way cross

Think the low 90' are my limit plus I need to get off road at the weekend for my long run it would kill me if I suffered another stress fracture. I change my shoe after every run and have four pairs going in the rotation OCD setting in this time round.

Why is everyone getting cross here?
Another 10.6 miles banked this evening, 5.5 with the JS group,
but no Fetchying for me

Time to get another LSR in on saturday  (but also XC on Sunday)

So many cross posts

Just trying to figure out a 20 miler off road.....

Got to be OCD NP!

Six rep hill run for tonight, nice and cool & no wind. Plenty of other runners around as well. Rest now until long run sat morning.

NP- on the shoe front, I have 2 pairs of cushioned shoes which I rotate between recovery runs, but everything else- 10m + I've started running in flats, purely because it's easier to run at the right pace without the weight.....

Good running guys, JS tonight, 2.5 run to the sports centre, took the one mile group for a little jog round the block. I only had thirty minutes to get home, so I ran a 5k route I've previously done, 29 minutes, nice to run at a quicker pace, not as speedy as some. Back to the 75% runs tomorrow

Some terrific mileage going on, congrats on getting to number 1 Jason.

Great doubles Fiona Jason and NP, I am looking forward to giving the a go when schedule calls, have been tempted to try them but wary as I really dont want to veer of the plan, I would be devastated if I picked up a niggle, I am lucky and stay free of injury.

SM  well done on the 400s rather you than me 

5 easy for me and a few weights today.

11 mlr tomorrow

A small jog this morning with Lulu and will try to get out later on my own for 45 Mins !

A rest day tomorrow as I am off to watch some footy and think the Day rest will do no harm !!

Keep up the good running Everyone

Thanks NP.... Hope the wrist was better in this swim?

Hi NN. A 17 month old black lab. Currently in season so cannot let of lead. Normally let her off as I run around the racecourse or similar. Cannot do that at the moment for obvious reasons. She's working pedigree which means = energy and short walks leave her frustrated, which means a few more runs on the lead at quiet times in quiet areas. Not ideal but in a week or too she can go back to longer walks off lead etc (and bird chasing)

6.5 Miles done tonight - which will help with the calories when I take Mrs AGf out for a meal tonight to lift the potential January Gloom

11/01/2013 at 16:30

AGF nice running - enjoy the meal

jason - awesome mileage

HM thanks. Hope the exercises are helping

SM6 LOL. Nice intervals

NP nice double again y'day, and well done on the lengths in the pool

Fiona wow speedy mile intervals

OH ...nice 10.6m

MG well done on the hill reps

Stewart nice running - it's good to have the odd blast

NN well done on the easy run and hope the 11 miler goes/went ok today


Sports massage first thing, then 90 mins hot yoga. Lots of one-legged dips and stretches. Managed to haul my heavy limbs out for a 4m recovery this p.m.

NN, enjoy your mlr tomorrow

NP, I'm still unsure of the benifits of doubles, are they used only to get your mileage above a certain threshold enjoy the 6 easy

AGF, good running today you've earns that meal

Teknik, i see you have had a massage, and have done some miles, I had a sports massage today, should I have a rest from running this evening or go out for a easy run, to be fair most of my running is easy
11/01/2013 at 17:33

Stewart - I run every day during marathon build-up, as I find it keeps me from stiffening up - so get out there for an easy 3 or 4 (sub70%)...

Edited: 11/01/2013 at 17:34
11/01/2013 at 17:40
A sub 70% would be a slow walk for me, kinda shuffling along @11:30 at the mo for 70-75%, thanks for the advice
11/01/2013 at 18:09


They are thanks.


Well done on everyone's training.
