HM hope you're felling better and enjoy the lie-in!
Stuart good easy 12m
NP well done on the 8 yesterday.
Fiona nice turbo - good decision to give the knee more time - looks like it did the trick...well done on the easy treddie 4m
MG glad you avoided the moron. Hellrunner is added now - good luck for tomorrow. Well done on that quick 6m last night.
Stewart LOL re fish finger sarnie. Good to hear you've shaken the man-flu. Nice 11m MLR yesterday.
AGF great 19m LSR and great HR print. I hear you re hard/easy - my schedule will sort itself out soon. Enjoy the week-end race / tempo
Hot yoga this morning and a 4m recovery this afternoon. Left calf is cramping, hopefully the roller will fix it...

Thanks. I will do.
Well done on everyone's training.
AGF, well done with the long run and a low HR, good luck with the 10k race this weekend
NN, Another good 20 in the bank, and it would have been an effort finishing into the wind
Tek, hope the roller sorts out the cramping calf, well done with the recovery and yoga
NP, glad the tummy issues are sorted, a good treadie session enjoy the hills tomorrow
MG1, good luck can't wait to hear all about it
I felt tired all day today and the motivation wasn't quite there, and I had a 8 mile with 4@ LT planned for this evening. Got home and changed and gritted the teeth and went for it, 3 mile wu @11mm and in truth I wasn't looking forward to the tempo part of the run. splits for the LT section were 9:01(81%) 8:56(85%) 8:58(86%) 8:52(87%).
Happy to get through it, went to Body balance after and I'm now feeling a lot more relaxed.
AGF & NN - Great long runs
NP - Nice run, 6:20 is fairly tanking it!
MG - Enjoy tomorrow
Stewart - Nice run, good LT pace.
Planned to do 4 miles before the gym, but gave up at around 2.7, legs felt like lead. Lack of sleep today being the likely cause, think I'll be fine for a MLR tomorrow if i get a good sleep.
Quick gym session of chin ups, dips and lunges. Couldn't believe how busy the gym was on a Friday evening
Good luck MG1, look forward to the report!
No double for me NP but hopefully back to normal from today. Good to hear you got over the bug thing quickly and good TM run, that must be your first in a while?
Stuart nice gym sesion.
Stewart well done on toughing it out. It sounds like a lot of us are feeling tired at the mo, the training does take it's toll.
Teknik I hope the roller sorted things?
Off to get organised for my run....
Fiona sorry I thought you where doing a double yesterday, think it was something I ate as I felt great once it was through my system as for the treadmill going to be doing a few sessions again now I'm back at work. Which will ensure I can get some good running in at the one pace, 4 more weeks of 80+ miles now and going to start to add more tempo runs into the mix. Then 3 weeks of 60 to 70 mile weeks with even more tempo and MP sessions then its taper time
MG1 good luck with the race dont forget the report
SC well done with the LT running they are not easy.
HM4 you getting out for a run over the weekend?
SM6 Sounds like a rest day or recovery day wont hurt
AFG Conditions is the one thing thats out of our control but well done on the 10k PB.
Fiona hope your run went ok.
8 miles today 4 up and 4 down, 73.78 miles for a cut back week for me
NP speedy treddie run yesterday, and well done on the 8 mile hill run today. Well done on the mileage.
MG looking forward to the race report
HM hope you're ok
Stewart well done on the tempo run; glad you enjoyed the gym class
Stuart hope the legs are better. Well done on the gym work and hope the MLR goes ok
Fiona glad the knee's better. Hope the early morning run went well...
AGF super running on that treddie 10k
12m for me this morning. Calf was ok until until I stopped, then the cramp struck again. More rolling required.... Hope I'll be ok for the Sunday club race.
Teknik a pal of mine advised me a few years ago regarding cramp if you carry a sachet of vinegar and you start to cramp drink the vinegar. Cramp is caused by an electrical signal which is sent to the muscle when it's already contracted the acid will help to stop it and also stop the pain within the muscle after the cramp. I thought yer right thats going to work then I started to take a cramp during the night in my right calf the first couple of times it hurt like hell for a couple of days after. So I tried the vinegar one night and in a matter of minutes the pain had gone and I never suffered the after effects that lasted days before. Give it a try it could also work for you great 12 miles in the bank.
thanks NP - I'll give it a go
Great confidence boost to get an unofficial PB AGF!
Still slacking a bit yesterday NP but should be back to the doubles next week. The treadmill is great for keeping the pace and great mileage for a cutback week.
Teknik hope the vinegar sorts you out. Having said that I eat a lot of beetroot in vinegar which is great.
22 miles done here, ended up 8:04mm pace overall and a nice morning for a run - fog, still and no rain.
AGF - Nice 10k time!
Fiona - Great pace for that 22. What time are you aiming for at London?
Tek - Hope the calves aren't too troublesome. Well done on the 12m
NP - Good run, and nice total for a cutback week!
11.33 miles @ 9.34 ave
Felt lazy this morning, took me nearly 4 hours from waking up to getting out the door. Felt fine once I did. I seem to have run 60 miles in the last 7 days, which I think is a record for me.
6 + gym tomorrow, 17-18 on Monday. Then recovery week, which I actually plan to go through with this time...
I'm fine guys. Had a really busy today with work & then shopping in Portsmouth. I'd like to get out for a run tomorrow but haven't checked the weather yet.
