Lorenzo - nice bike mileage. Shame about Israel, but I'm sure you'll enjoy Spain. GM - good you have some close friends to support you. Leslie - probably wise to revise your target. Speedy - glad you enjoyed the athletics. Hope your injury woes are sorted out quicker than you fear. Birch - didn't realise you were planning to run Mablethorpe - might see you there if we both make it through the next 9 weeks! Fishy - excellent LSR. Enjoy the hols! Abbers - nice easy run. PMJ - good luck with the Ealing mile. Moof - good to hear from you - sounds like some good training has been going on. Which mara are you doing? VTr - good miles there! GM - sounds like a good evening out! Well, I had to give the pre-race talk to just myself this morning I did see another runner - in thick tracksuit and woolly hat?!!! Magic Mile went OK - seemed like a fairly even pace and ended up with 5:36, which I'm happy with. I think that's a couple of seconds slower than last year but not too surprising. Off to France this weekend for 11 days, so enjoy your running everyone and I'll catch up with you all later.
Fishy - good reps. PMJ - there have been a few runners around in the Walks recently, so you never know! What would be your ideal warm-up distance for a fast session? I usually do 3 miles. Birch - sounds like a good session. Abbers - yes, and a holiday hair-cut - two for the price of one! SB - great running. Sounds like sub 90 is there for the taking. 2 mile recovery in new shoes this morning.
marrows - nice intervals. Leslie - well done on toughing it out. Abbers - sounds promising - take it easy. Sorry guys, my earlier post was a bit ambiguous. I meant that this morning I did my final interval session - my Magic Mile event is on Friday at 5:30 am (not expecting anyone else to turn up!)
Fishy - nice hilly 13.4 miles. SB - good to bounce straight back after a disappointment. GM - that is terrbile news - really sorry to hear that. And no need to apologise. Minni / MsE - cracking Thunder Run! Well done. marrows - good luck with the interval session - I've been doing a mixture of shorter and longers reps over the last couple of weeks and it's ages since I'd done any either. Haven't a clue though - just making it up as I go along. TAR - 3 beats me. VTrunner - good training. SJ - just epic. Brilliant report. Final interval session before the Magic Mile this morning. Just 4 x 300m to save the legs a bit (0:54, 0:55, 0:55, 0:56).
