Teknik you have to go see the show I thought Hugh Jackman was out standing and so was Anne Hathaway where outstanding, if you have seen the show on stage this is as good, Russle Crew was ok but his voice was just not strong enough. Well done on a solid weeks training.

Misty welcome to the thread my middle son is type 1 diabetic on insulin so I know you cant just go mad on carbs. Wouldn't the heel injury be better treated if you went the other way with your trainers and went for a min/shoe so you had to run on the forefoot? also off road running will also help.

SM6 well done on the 5 miles and 33 mile week not nice out today.

Jason another fantastic long run in the bank thats very impressive splits at this stage of training, 2:3**

AGF You need to change that nme to Am Fitter well done on your two runs and 70 miles for the week, I also think your looking at a break through PB this year.

SC Well done on the 14 miles nice running.

Well first 20 mile run for VLM in the bank, this run had it all but sunshine and heat, lots of hills, mud, water, rain, hail and snow very cold towards the end but happy with the effort off road.

Well done on your 14 Stewart, 

Well done too No Pain. Super running !!! Thanks too...although I am still getting fitter  Hopefully I will see further improvement and beat 3:30 if I can stay fit !!

BT - I too Like les miserable - have seen the show 3 times. Always makes me smile when I watch france play rugby too - the national anthem itself is a great one. As for the Show - "do you hear the people sing" - brilliant !!

XC done even if I did bring up the rearguard (as usual) for the Vets in a small field (4th MV of 4). Now home with fire lit
Looking forward to lez miz (Elspeth just seen it in Edinburgh with our girls)

Lol at NP! 2.39 would be a 10 min PB, mate! Well done on your run
Stewart - good 14
Oh- well done on the XC- my pet hate!
AGF- I agree, time for a name change!
Mace- nice mileage- enjoy the recovery week. Still a week to go here before mine

Great pace on the run Teknik and great miles with out a long run!!

As NP says jason you are running so well, great to see all the hard work pay off and this is just the start!

Good cross training and running Stuart, no snow here, just ice!

Welcome Dawn.

Fantastic weekly mileage AGF and jason it's not too late to do the 0.06!  A mere 62.70 for me but happy with that.  

Nice running of the half course Stewart, I always forget where it goes after Green Drive!

Sounds like a really interesting 20 NP, great running the day after hill work!

Well done on the XC OH.

Blimey it's busy here!! 5 miles easy for me - I must be the thread slacker!!

Looking forward to another week's training!  Stay injury free all!



13/01/2013 at 19:05
NP- you got me checking now. Around 25-30 secs per mile is the answer
Fiona- thanks Nice slacking! Lol! Only joking....

Jason I know I looked
Fiona great running and a great weeks training.
13/01/2013 at 19:21
Fiona, if I take the five mile group on Tuesday that's the route they're running should be a little over 5 but we'll keep that a secret good mileage too, you guys are going to be doubling my weekly mileages, some already are.
13/01/2013 at 19:22
NP- lol!
13/01/2013 at 19:23


HI & welcome to the thread.


Well done on everyone's training.

13/01/2013 at 19:59

Tek looks like you got some speed back in the legs nice pace for that 7.5
Misty ..The duchy marathon fr a first attempt !!that was in at the deep end , I have done the 20 a couple of times, giving it a miss this year its the same day as Bideford Half which I shall do instead
SM6 good running .nice to see the mileage creeping up
Jason awesome splits as per usual fabulous running
AGF great mileage...that lovely lab must be pretty fit too
Stewart well done on the 14...but I did did shake my head and sigh at those words I didnt bother to keep HR under 75%...I will be reporting you  the Hadd thread !!  but there are plenty of good runners that dont use that hr thing anyway...I know NP thinks its a load of carp !!
NP lucky you getting the first 20 done...I was tempted to make mine a 20 today..but stuck to the plan...well nearly I did 18.5
Fiona..we will let you off the only 5 miles ...you are doubling all week and a very impressive long run n the bag already !!

I really didnt feel like running 18 miles when I got up at 2 oclock...but didnt actually feel too bad after a mound of shreddies
and a couple cups of coffee

Hilly first 7 miles....to get them out the way..then gently undulating....should have been 18 but was 18.35 when I git home OCD took over and had to make it up to 18.5,

hard to run it progressively due to the hills but HR nice and low 72.7%

9.47..9.41..9.40..9.30..9.31..9.27..9.27..9.23..9.21..9.19..9.21..9.16..9.23..9.21 ..9.15..9.10..9.12..9.05.. 4.30

66.9 miles for the week arrrrrggghhh I wish I had known that..I would have made todays 18.6

13/01/2013 at 20:02
NN OCD lol great running today and during the week for 66.9
13/01/2013 at 20:05
NN- nice running and nice mileage!! On hilly courses you should try to make the effort progressive rather than kill yourself trying to make the pace progressive great going
13/01/2013 at 20:08
It's not to late NN
13/01/2013 at 20:53
Thank you for your comments guys.

Night Nurse.... A super run for you and that must be a real boost for you
13/01/2013 at 21:00

Jason thanks, I pushed HR up for last few miles , but made sure it didnt go over 80% and was pleased how strong I was feeling on the hills towards the end.

AGF yes I am feeling good at the moment P&Ding seems to be paying off 

NP if I hadnt already showered I would be out the door for another  .1
