Cal, to be only 13 seconds outside your pb is awesome given you are not feeling as fit as you were a few months ago, it all bodes well for another good year with all your race times going in the right direction.well done with the long run today especially after a hard 10k race.
Tricia, welcome back sounds like you have had a good break away on the slopes
SM, hope you're feeling better soon and I am sure you'll manage to get the required training done in time for your ultra. how's the injury?
Fiona, another good week I hope the calf is ok and the test run was uneventful
NP, you're a machine, well done with the 70 mile week and fast parkrun,
Tek, a few miles is better than nowt!
S17, congratulations on another 1st place at parkrun and good to see the mileage rising.
I have only manage 2 runs this week 3 and 5 miles respectively, I don't think I have recovered from the bug as the HR was very high although it did feel easy, hopefully I'll manage to get a few more miles in next week.
S17, well done with the mix of training and good luck at parkrun this weekend
OH, shame about the xc, hope you're feeling better
tek, good mileage again building nicely,
NP 4th place is a great result sounds like you're getting back on form, just in time for London.
Fiona, I hope you are feeling better now, and you have managed to get some quality miles don on the trails and on the bike
Tricia, it sounds really cold over there well done getting out for a ski and getting on the treadie when you can
Hazel, good to hear the fall didn't do any damage
SM, well done with the tempo effort at the xc, I bet it was still a hard run though, good luck with the LR today
Sorry been AWOL, not much to report I was getting a bit greedy upping the frequency and running 4 days on the trot with two quicker session didn't agree with the Achilles, I decided after Tuesday's run with JS to rest up for a few days as it was a bit achy, it is feeling a lot better now so I should be able to get back on it once I have recovered from a bit of man flu.
I've got a sports massage this evening so I'll probably start backup tomorrow.
Cal, well done with parkrun as you said a decent workout before your 10k race enjoy your log run tomorrow
S17, another great time at parkrun today,
Fiona, yes it was with the Tri club, sounds like a very busy training day well done with the slippery hill reps and gym work
SM, The Achilles was a bit niggly yesterday but has settled down today, four days on the trot and two sessions probably wasn't wise, good luck with the 5k race in Edinburgh I am sure you'll do yourself proud
NP, you are piling on the miles well done with the double run and swimming, the rest day was most welcomed
Tek, well done with the easy 5 plus strides.
A swim and body balance last night, first few 100m reps were tough, but settled into a rhythm for a solid 800m set, BB helped stretch out those tight bits, not sure what I'll do today as it is my Daughters' birthday so it will be either an easy run or I'll have a spin on the turbo.
Cal, 5 hours battery life is not so good, although the silver lining is your are getting faster and will be a lot closer to 4 hours next time out
S17, well done with the treadie running, is there a reason why you don't train out on the road/trails
Fiona, nice LT intervals, it is all about the effort pace doesn't matter especially on hills and out on the trails
SM, I hope the gym session went well, congrats to your club mate very impressive times, I saw a clip on sky sports about Laura Muir's race she was flying
Tek, well done with the 5 miles plus strides
A swim to loosen me up this afternoon as I decided to do the club session after all, 6 x 1k(approx) reps 3 clockwise 3 anti-clockwise, pretty tough session I recon I'm about 30 secs a mile slower than last year, so lots to work on!
Rest day tomorrow, I'll probably go for a swim before body balance.
