Toby - sorry you have a cold lurgy. Hope you can shake it off soon.
Dee - just pop back whenever you can. Hope you aren't still aching from the PT session.
I'm afraid I didn't get out for my run after work yesterday. Been to and fro to the tip today (both garages looking a bit better) and off to a party in a bit for the charity Mrs Wm fund-raises for. Tomorrow is family get-together day and on Sunday I'm on call 10:00- 12:00 (or a bit later if things don't go to plan). The furniture moving got cancelled but I've promised to go and see my son instead. So I will have to get my ar$e out of bed early on Sunday and get a run in before the on call starts.
CW - ssshhhhh .. don't tell anyone but I have considered leaving my current club and giving Cirencester AC a try. Not sure if you would have seen posting. After Bath HM is done & dusted I will be starting walk training. I am doing Wainwright's Coast To Coast next July (190mls in 13 days). There are lots of ups and downs in that so I will also be looking for some big hills to train on as well as building up the distances.
Yvonne - blimey, that's some good training going on there! Well done!! Hope the small op goes okay today.
Toby - I guess as long as you are getting the mileage done one way or another, whatever combination of runs that suits you is easiest.
I am on 'lates' today (5:30pm finish) and working from home. I could have gone out for a run before work but am afraid I CBA. So as I 'gain' an hour by not having to travel home this evening I'll go out after I finish work. Having a day off tomorrow but planning to take junk to the tip; out seeing the family on Saturday; on call on Sunday morning and helping move furniture in the afternoon. So not sure at the moment when a 9ml run will be fitted in amongst that little lot.
CW - good to hear from you and glad to hear the cycling is going well. As you say, plenty of time to get to grips with swimming. See you are planning Snowdon marathon again - having seen that on tv am impressed with anyone completing that one. You probably also noticed it's just the hardcore of us posting regularly on here these days (me, Dee, Toby, B&T, Yvonne).
Toby - I am using the same basic plan for Bath HM as in the past. As B&T knows, my main problem twice in the past has been getting cramp at around 9mls despite no problems during training.
I did 4.5mls yesterday evening. Crossed over at the end of my road and found myself running amongst members of Cirencester AC again as they were out on their training run. It was the faster ones I was running amongst this time - so more focused running going on and no chat! They stopped a bit further on as I made my way into town. I could see their leader looking at me and wondering why I wasn't stopping so I shouted out .. "It's okay - I'm the opposition!"
Toby - wasn't expecting you to be putting in 20ml run just yet - well done.
Yvonne - good training going on there from you.
I'm slowly building up my mileage. I did 8mls on Saturday - had to take a couple of short walk breaks but overall pace was 10:30mm. I've put together a training plan for the Bath HM (increasing long weekend runs; some steady runs and some hills/intervals) and will up the long run to 9mls next weekend.
Dee - nice of you to pop in and sorry to hear 'life' is so busy at the moment.
Toby - well done re the 8ml run and good luck for later today.
I am on 'lates' today and working from home. So a 09:30 start meant I had loads of time to go for a run before work. And I did! I dragged myself out of bed at 06:45 and did a short tempo run at 10:09 pace (3.25ml loop around town). Feeling very virtuous now and not yawning as much as I expected
