Just back - bit soggy (well very soggy - had to wring my t-shirt out a couple of times!!) but a good run  Added an extra hill and about 2/3 of a mile to my usual road route to make 16.1M with 1100 feet of climbing at 7:17 pace. Quite pleased with it, as I felt much more full of running than on my last long run, did the middle 9 miles at average sub 7 pace (including the extra hill) and still had a bit in the legs after Amersham Hill.

That'll be my last long run before the Marlow Half, and last long road run for the year probably so glad to get it out the way!

16 on a friday night is a cracking run!

From the experience of doing that twice ever, i think i'd be loathe to do it again!

I'll be pleased to marshall you on the 5th. Just need to get the next 2 weekends, sorry this weekend out the way first

You are itching to spill the beans aren't you, as subtle as a flying brick.

What's going on...? I'm still intrigued why DT2 is 'the man' and all will be revealed.

Must admit, a long run in the rain was a good way to let off steam after a frustrating  and stressful week!

Next week will just be coasting, and that will be great.....

I can watch you live on Channel 5.

and to think some of us can just enter a race with out all this drama....it must seem so mundane

tempo for me this morning 4m @ 5.50 and bookended by 3m at 7mm for warm up /down.  Felt better than the last few weeks so maybe getting used to the pace now or could be that i watched rocky last night.

parkrun, starting to feel it come back to me, bad time but third overall and first km in 5:52 so sub 6 pace is popping up again, but mot for 10 miles yet.

Who said anything about entering a race ?

Philip - 5:52  1st k? You're going backwards! Seriously, though, does sound like the speed is coming back. I suspect it was bit slippy in paces on the Rye today?

Nice tempo Deano, 4 miles is a sizeable chunk at true tempo pace. Also nice Parkrun from Phil on the comeback trail.

Just an 18.5 mile long one for me today. That's 5 in the last 6 weeks 18+ miles.

Back on the mainland, good to go for CP I guess! What Vest you wearing then SG so I know who not to blast off with in a 5:15 1st Mile?

Clearly not been reading the thread properly whilst away, sorry to hear about the foot injury Dachs, hope it clears quickly and enjoy the week off.

Mega long runs Stevie & Bus, I've not mastered the long run yet at all, 12 Miles as far as I ever go, need to work on that.

Sounds like you're trainings going well Dean, are you running the national XC relays at Mansield on 3rd November?

just been reading back and missed your long run in miserable weather bus.
marlow half will seem a like a walk in the park after that!
dachs-bit of a rest and you will be good to smash your future races!

Seb - i was selected for the national relays but it would mean 3 XC weekends in a row which will put a spanner in the works for both a harmonious marriage and my training for telford 10k.  So have decided to miss it.

comeback trail is going ok, based on the Park run Philip, shouldnt be to long until you are back to full steam.

SS - whats with all this mileage?  are you sneaking a marathon by us?

Not sure how i have managed to forget that its CP tomorrow, so good luck to all those running it from this thread and the middle ground thread. Looks perfect weather so should deliver performances to match.

Crikey nearly forgot to post - good luck to all the Cabbage Patchers - though if you're reading this, why aren't you tucked up safe in bed?

Seb - you seem to be doing pretty darn well off those 12 milers mate!

Cheers SH - rain and Marlow often seem to go together though! Is the border league XC?

SS - "just" an 18.5M??!!  With 5 in 6 weeks, your endurance must be phenomenal at the mo - don't let it go to waste, get yourself down for a marathon

the bus- the border league is 7 seven races spread over the winter from october to april but on the road and there all between 5m and 10k. Tomorrows is a 10k on the road for example. Very quick if theres no wind it is.

5:52 pace, 3:41 on the watch. It is getting a lot more slippery. I was a few secodns slower than I was 4 weeks ago but ran much better and stronger. The grass is wet and waterlogged, the paths are puddled and where they are not puddled they are covered in slippery leaves. I definitely feel faster so the times will eventually show this. Shame is that today was won in a real slow time (19:20) and a fit me would have aced that by a mile.

Good luck all the CP and Dam runners tomorrow.
