Stewart and Barbara - Great race reports, well done guys!
Fiona - Sounds like a tough day out! That 2:08 mile would terrify me! I hit 27mph, for about half a second, on my bike coming from parkrun and that was bad enough!
Colin - Good long run after a heavy Saturday!
17 miles for me this morning. Should have been 18 put pulled up with a cramping pain in the right thigh. Think it's my groin. No point in battering through it. I hope it's just because I was likely a bit dehydrated since it was actually reasonably sunny and even warm in places!
mathschick - Well done on the half 19 degrees? It was absolutely hammering down when I was out! Hopefully that sort of weather stays south of the border for the next month! That's about as warm as it gets here in summer, with the noteable exception of Edinburgh Marathon day when its guaranteed to be about 40 degrees...
Stewart - Nice long run, and I bet it feels good to bag a course best on a training run!
I'm going to attempt around 7:45 at Lochaber. I'd like to think I could maybe run 3:22 (7:42)if it all comes together on the day Are you looking at 8:45?
Tek - Good run especially after a hard run yesterday morning. Heat won't have helped obviously! Puts you in a good place for your other upcoming PB attempts
NP - The pace I ran this morning was way too hard for MP, fueled or not. I want to go sub 3:30, but the 7:30 was to give me an idea whether or not a PB of an hour (3:17:xx) is do-able. It's not, but at least I know and hopefully will be sensible enough to remember this!
Excellent LSR this morning, you're really hammering in the some good miles!
NP - Slacking off, some of us had already been out. Albeit not for 22 miles!
Kaz - Personally, I'd go and run but make sure I'm never too far from home. So if you need to bail out you're not too far away. Oh, and of course, go very easy!
Fiona - Enjoy the cycle
Barbara - Yip, I think it sounds like a dose of hypochondria Good luck with the half today
HM - As NP says, it really needs to be done in one go
Ridiculously stupid run from me this morning...
11.1 (unfuelled) miles with 8 @ an unsustainable MP (8:00 7:45 7:36 7:27 7:28 7:30 7:30 7:26). I knew that 7:36 for mile 3 was too fast, but by then I was at the point of no return. I can't slow myself down!
I suppose I know now I can't run 7:2x unfuelled as an MP I should probably have took a gel and aimed more at 7:40...
