Freemers - well done bagging the 20 miler. OO - excellent parkrunning. Poacher - lovely conditions for parkrun. Thanks for the info about White Peak - I think I have walked some of that descent and it's not great! Abbers - hope the rest does you good. Bike It - challenging indeed! All the best. Jools - great mileage. Hilly - well done getting out for a double yesterday. 9 more easy miles for me this morning.
Lorenzo - good week of running. PMJ - well done on the slow pacing. WS - sounds like you earned that recovery shake - but it does sound revolting. Jools - must have been bitterly cold. Birch - Sorry to hear your knee is still playing up. I discussed possible race plans with Mrs GD. Not looking promising Seem to be busy every Sunday. Now looking at White Peak - maybe Poacher has done this one? Not going to be fast obviously, but could be good experience ready for a crack at a decent time in the autumn (Mablehorpe?) Badbark - that is a very impressive 10k with a parkrun warm-up! Great WAVA score too. Leslie - more progress and 25 miles! PMJ - nice 20 miler. Looking promising. SJ - moving in the right direction. KR - on course for a cracking race in Manchester, I think. Bike It - nice way to spend a Saturday night! Enjoy the mini-taper. What's the plan for the marathon? GD - well done, that's a great result. That must have been a really strong wind to feel like you were in reverse! Glad the lurgy has gone. Rest day yesterday and started my cut-back week with 7 easy miles.
Jools - rehearsals or concerts? Any running planned too? GD - all the best with the Grim Challenge today. KR - getting in some good consistent training there. Abbers - easily done! GM - bet that was enjoyable run. SJ - I thought maybe you had them in case you found a boat Speedy - hope all is well. Birch - hope you can make Dewsbury tomorrow and good luck to your son. Freemers - nice intervals. Willy Samson - welcome to the thread and all the best with your training for MK. Poacher - welcome back! Badbark - nice photos - I wouldn't want to be in your way! Hilly - enjoy the week off. Overslept a bit today - but not enough to have to bin the LSR. So started at 4:37 am and did 19 miles. Legs felt like lead - so a real plod @ 8:42 m/m. 63 miles for the week and 81 in the last 7 days. Maybe that's why I struggled. Put it down as a time on feet run!
SJ - swimming with paddles? Freemers - sounds like my HM/10k conversion (6:36 v. 6:31 I think!) Hilly - nice double. OO - enjoy the parkrun tourism. 10 easy miles with 12x100 strides. Going to be a wet LSR tomorrow I think.
GM - just think how beautiful the sunrise will be reflecting on the sea as you glide along the promenade all by yourself Jools - nice reps in the glorious mud. Abbers - good swimming. Leslie - hope the swimming went well. GD - solid MLR. Maybe a rest is in order before the Grim Challenge! KR - yes, but it's not very loud! With my old watch I would have just used a loop around the park where I know approximately where each 100m starts and finishes! 6 mile recovery run d&d this morning.
