Jason Spill the beans - What and where is it?

FionaC - Good the knee held out. I quite enjoy muddy trails during training too (gives me an excuse not to be concerned with times too)
Still windy with you?

SM6 - sounds a good plan

NP did write a message yesterday commenting on your video but must have forgotten to click Submit. Looking strong at the finish

Happy to take a break today but might be chaming at the bit if I don't get out at all in the 6days ...

NN that's a great MLR in the bank well done.
Dark o'clock run about to start here first for a long while
07/02/2013 at 10:14

NN That's good going especially on a hilly route
NP Silly o clock starts

Full of a cold and on call today - think I'll give JS a miss

07/02/2013 at 13:34

OH hope you shake that cold and find some time outside work

Jason congrats !!!   Hope you enjoyed the mini-taper

Stuart well done on the "easy" 4m. I agree with the plan...

Fiona thanks - I was  - nice muddy 13 miles.

Stewart hope you're feeling well enough for that 11 miler

NN fantastic splits again !

NP hope you enjoyed your dark run


Really crappy long run here this morning. Legs were like lead from the MP session yesterday.  I ran 8m on my own, then joined the club for an unexpectedly hilly 6m, then ran home.  Barely kept it in single figures pace, HR 69%max average. Still, I bagged my first 20 miler of the campaign.

Got home for lunch and Mrs Tek had made me a quiche plus mandarin, onion, sweet potato and lettuce salad. Bad mood disappeared...

07/02/2013 at 16:45
Tek, could you possibly update the list, and add me for the lochaber marathon on the 14th April. I've still got a cough, but I feel we'll so I'm going to give the run a go.
07/02/2013 at 17:04

Well done NN

Stewart - sorry - thought I had but I obviously failed to save it. Twice! Good luck with the run...

Congrats hope it goes well.


Hope you feel better soon.


Well done on everyone's training.  Feeling really drained today however have done a full day of work and it was an early shift followed by weekly shop.  Still late shift tomorrow so that will mean a bit of a lie in.

07/02/2013 at 19:56

Tek - Great run today 

NP - Well done on getting out nice and early, some of us are still working at that time!

NN - Nice 14 yesterday, good pace too.


12.1 miles @9.43 ave this evening. Nice and easy

07/02/2013 at 20:42

Hi Peeps nearly bed time here lol up and out early this morning for work, only running once today as the legs are heavy and don't want to over do things at this stage so missing one run wont hurt 8 mile done this morning and happy with that.

Some super long runs today, Teknik thats a great run after a LT run the day before, AGF again another super run.

NN nice recovery run enjoy your long run tomorrow.

SM6 Nice 12 miles tonight, I work strange shifts.



07/02/2013 at 21:23

Teknik and AGF amazing long runs for mid week!!

Nice 12 miler Stuart and recovery NN.

NP back to the early starts!  Missing a run certainly won't do any harm on the training that you put in.

Decided on an easy 10 mile turbo tonight. Knee feels the best it has been this week but want it to be better for the weekend


07/02/2013 at 21:37
Tek you can add my Hell Runner in the Middle which is Saturday if you want, 10-12 miles of hills, trials, lakes and mud should be fun

6 miles for me tonight at 8.33 pace average, which felt okay as a potential M pace this dispite some moron trying his best to run me over at junction!!

Nice running AGF and Tek
Fiona C a turbo 10 miler sounds interesting
07/02/2013 at 22:44

OH, hope you manage to squeeze in the odd run this week, hope the lurgy clears up quick

NN, another good MLR and and a good pace too hope your feeling recovered after your 5 today

Tek, well done getting the 20 in the bank, I got fish fingers sandwiches when I got home, Yummy!.

HM4, sounds like you've had a busy day, enjoy the lie in

SM6, Another good run you're bang on target

NP, my god that was an early run, enjoy the rest this evening you deserve it

Fiona, Glad the knee is improving I think Craig's hill session won't have help it 

MG1, cracking pace, thats closer to my 5k pace

Tonight was sheduled for a 11 mile MLR, as it is a Jog Scotland night the run was split into three, 2 mile run to the sports centre @ 10:45mm 72%, the JS run was a 6 miler with some hills @10:44mm 79% and then a 3 mile run home, this was a little quicker @9:46mm 84%

No real ill effects from the cold during the run so that is a result, hopefully that will be the end of it.

Thanks.  Not looking forwards to the 8pm finish and work tomorrow.  Still will be able to have lie in on Sunday.  Well done on your run.

08/02/2013 at 08:26

MG1 good MP run, glad you avoided the car!

Stewart another good day's running from you. I'm probably my own worst enemy with the hill running as I can't hold back on the downhill!

HM4 hope you get time for a couple of runs over the weekend.

Did a 4 mile easy run this morning on the treadmill and knee felt 100%


08/02/2013 at 10:17

Hi Guys, Hope your all well. I have been a little busy this week, so just in catchup mode. Have a done a few runs this week including 19 Miles very slowly last night at 68% MHR. I have a 10K race this weekend - which I do not plan to race - but will run at a decent Tempo pace to get some faster miles without killing myself

NP, I loved your video. Those legs sure are turning over fast

Teknik, well done on your 20 - especially after you faster run the day before. Your miles are building very well - but remember the hard day / easy day rule

Fiona - Its good to hear that your knee is feeling better after your resting it. Its hard to do sometimes- but less is sometimes more.

Jason, Congratulations on your new job. I hope it allows you to keep you multiple runs per day

Well done everyone else on their training too.  Keep up the good work !!

08/02/2013 at 13:54


OH hope the cold doesnt come to much take care

SM6 nice pace for easy 12 

Fiona sensible to take care of that knee, it doesn't see to be affecting your pace at the moment so keep looking after it and it will see you through 

AGF nice mileage at low heart rate , good luck for the 10k, I look forward to seeing how you get on

MG1 nice running and there really are some idiots on the roads, I think its more noticeable just how many when we are running and feel more vulnerable

Stewart C seems like the rest did you good,good to see the cold didnt get any worse  cracking run well done.

Done my 20 now back to bed for rest before work.

here are my splits ruined by sodding head wind in final 6 miles, so couldn't get much below 9s I was blown all over the fricking place and at one point nearly ended up in the river !!!

20 miles 3.02

9.09..9.00..8.56...9.08...9.07..9.14..9.00 ..8.46..8.58..8.42..

AVE HR 72.7 %
