AGF enjoy the boozy weekend
Thanks for all the well wishes. Near freezing temps and possibility of snow might make this more of a survival course!
OH - Good luck on Sunday! Rather you than me in this weather!
AGF - Sounds like a good weekend Enjoy!
Tek - Good training
NN - Nice running!
Stewart - Good run last night
MG - Sounds like a good session at the gym
HM - Well done
About 1000m swimming for me this afternoon, plus 5 or whatever miles on the bike to/from the gym. I think I swam 40 lengths but I did lose count at one point
Stewart - ah, gotcha !!
HM4 - keep going with the pressups, you'll be surprised how quickly you improve.
AGF - enjoy the booze, i've been off it since New Year .. miracle !!!
Nice x-training Stuart
NP - hope the parkrun goes well
MG - is there such a thing as a "nice" treadmill run ... *shudders*
Nurse - glad you're picking up
Tek - enjoy the "rest" .... stats for my run are below, sorry for delay sir
Good luck to OH and sevendaughters for their races

Well done on everyones training.
Thanks for your comments. I'm still doing press ups on my knees. Once I get to the end of the challenge I'll try full press ups. At the end of this 2nd week they do an exhaustion test - as many 'good form' press ups as you can manage. The first one I did was only 5.
6.5m recovery this morning, 10m with 6m LT intervals tonight in 1.05, followed by 1m warm down. Catch up tomorrow cos I'm off to bed- know it's ridiculously early, but I'm knackered for some reason- night all
I know how you feel jason, fell asleep not long after corrie started last night, woke at 10, straight to bed and didn't surface until 7am
5M recovery this morning - better half dropped mace jr #2 at the 3M mark and he did the last couple with me which was really nice
Have good weekends all
OH good luck tomorrow. Go faster, then you won't freeze
Stuart good swim and bike session
HM keep up the good work - I normally flake at about week 4
Mace - ignoring the last mile uphill, the drift looks like it's well under control. Enjoy the Lydd half tomorrow
jason nice double - hope you feel better/rested today
Having cancelled the long run Thursday I had to get it in today - so 2 laps of a 7m hilly course then 6m with the club. Another 20 miler bagged. Will take it easy in tomorrow's club race.
NN Well done with your run yesterday looks like your on your way back.
Teknik hot yoga with sweaty women and great running well done on the 20 banked.
OH Good luck if the weather stays the same you will be fine looking forward to the race report.
SM6 well done with the swimming and bike work yesterday.
Mace well done on the 15 mile run nice stats for Teknik to look at
Jason well done on a great double yesterday hope you slept well.
Well yesterday was a swim 1 mile (64x25m) front crawl and 4 miles easy/recovery, this morning just over 2 miles warm up then the Park run followed by a cool down. The Parkrun went ok a little on the windy side and sliped twice and nearly fell over during the second mile but very happy with 3rd and 1st in age group and only 2 seconds outside my PB Not bad to finish off another 80 mile week.
Mace, good luck tommorow, not that you'll need it
Tek, Another good 20 in the bank well done
NP, awesome mileage for the week and some good running and swimming over the last couple of days, might have been a PB if it wasn't for the slip
Jason, Good double yesterday and parkrun today, good luck with the 24 tomorrow
OH, sevendaughters, good luck tomorrow and I hope it warms up a little
Normally I do my long runs on a Sunday, but as the cricket season is almost upon us indoor training starts tomorrow, so I had to move the LSR.
A hilly 20 miles with a mixture of forest trails and road, with the last mile and a half up hill, I believe most could have walked up the hill quicker, but I did it and beat the stop daemon on my shoulder
edit: link for run http://connect.garmin.com/activity/282078850
MG1 nice 20, nice even pace and Teknik well done and hope the club race goes well tomorrow. Stewart also good to get the 20 bagged, well done not stopping on the hill.
jason nice trial parkrun and NP great parkrun result and another strong week of training!
mace know the feeling, I was pretty exhausted after being away and bailed on the planned 20 today. Did 8 easy and hope to be back to normal tomorrow.
HM4 well done on all of the press ups you are doing.
NN good to see you back!
AGF have fun in London. Looking forward to being there in 6 weeks.
Stuart that's lots of swimming and good cross training!
OH good luck! A freezing wind here, hope it's better at Loch Katrine.
Did get out on Thursday night for a fast run offroad, felt a lot faster than the 7:36mm the Garmin said but only had an hour and fifteen minutes between the end of the conference and start of dinner (started with a photo so had to look half decent!!)
MG/Stewart/Tek - Nice long runs, hope the weather is a bit less wild where you guys are. I'm hoping the wind dies down for my LSR tomorrow or Monday.
NP - Well done on the parkrun
Jason - Nice tempo, good luck for the 24 tomorrow.
Mace - Thats a nice 15, good pace and HR.
Had planned for 10ish+gym today, hangover has decided otherwise I'll get out later on as I do need to run today, probably 6 miles. Might even go for a swim about 9.
Good luck for everyone racing tomorrow.
MG1- Well done on the 20
Stewart- You too! Another 20 in the bag for the thread Sounds like a toughie too!
SM6- Hope the hangover has faded now
Second run of the day done and dusted, kept it nice and easy with one eye on tomorrow's 24 10.01m in 1.13.46 (7.22 av)
Nice run Jason.
Hangover has gone and I managed to get out the door for 6.14 miles @ 8.38. Faster than I planned to run but still felt very easy. Probably should have just done 10.
LSR&MLR over the next 2 days, probably MLR tomorrow but I'll see how I feel.
Mace /sevendaughter and OH very best of luck for you all today. Looking forward to seeing the results later.
Enjoy long runs everyone..and Jason is 24 your longest ? and how any do you do ?
MG1 lovely 20 miler in the bank nearly taper time for you then do you do your last one 3 weeks out ?
Tek and StuartC you too, nice to get another 20 in the bank
Fiona I bet you looked great in your pic all glowing a refreshed from that super run, just goes to show there is no excuse, always time to get a run done.
NP wel done again for the brilliant race and overall position.
SM6 I darent even risk a hangover these days I would have to take a week off....nice run at least you weren't sick, which I a sure I would have been .
I had a fairly late night out with the girls, ..but have decided to get the long run done today (even though I have to go work this afternoon) as having seen the forecast today is just about the lesser of 2 evils schedule says 17 so will see how it goes and may do 20
