OO - Enjoy the Riviera. It sounds a beautiful place for your hols.
Gerard - Glad your recovery continues and nice to be chilling. GC is definitely my favourite holiday destination and not just for the sun, sand and sea. Only a few miles inland and you're on brilliant mountain trails. Mrs. F1 and I enjoyed two 8 mile treks during the week.
Abbers - Watch those cricket injuries! I used to get similar problems mixing squash and running. Yes...being a father in law makes me feel older and more responsible than I really want to be - the wedding was brilliant, a truly memorable day.
SEdan - nice to see you de-lurking. As above, you're in the right place. Also looks like you're putting in good mileage for sub 3:15.
Leslie - That tendon snapping warning would certainly scare me into not running! Which tendon is causing the problem? Hope the walking and stretching works for you.
VTr - 60 miles of quality training must be very satisfying for you. I'll be interested to read about your Hoka exploits. I tried a pair a few weeks ago, but found them a bit tight across the top of my feet - amazing cushioning though.
Back this morning from 2 contrasting hols. 1 week in beautiful South Lakeland officially becoming an in law (!) & then getting in some good walks & runs. The next in scorching Gran Canaria. Got some great runs in there too, 6-7 miles each morning along the sea front. Brilliant. Had good read back, so well done to all A levellers.
Gull - welcome back. glad to hear you had good hols too.
Leslie - not great news for you. Are you able to bike or do any other sort of x training?
OO - great consistency there with the 5ks. Nice family running too.
Lorenzo - looks like you're getting in some good hot weather running. There's nothing like it!
Birch - 22.5 is super long! Nice weekly block of training there.
Gerard - R&R sounds about right. Recover well.
Jools - Good progression with your 20 milers.
Slokey - nice biking & solid long speed session. Great quality.
TAR - exciting finish & great matching time. 7 minutes quicker & feeling fresh & giddy (!) can't be bad.
Minni - good news on the hip. I've had similar odd experiences with knee injuries. Where more training seems to improve the situation. Be careful though.
After 2+ weeks of just running I was pleased to be back on my trusty steed today for some early morning biking
Lorenzo - Nice monthly stats, particularly your 150 bike ride. Have good hols.
Gerard - Glad you're keeping going with the running. A pleasant run in the sun should help with the equilibrium.
Leslie - I'm sure you've already posted it on here - but which marathon are you doing?
Speedy - sounds like Glasgow was a fantastic experience. I can only imagine how uncomfortable a twisted pelvis must be. Hope your physio and NHS appointments re-align everything for you.
Birch - Good set of stats there, particularly those three 20+ LSRs.
Took a leaf out of Jools' training manual this morning and swapped my weekend LSR to this morning. So 22.5 undulating miles this morning. I'm off for 2.5 weeks now, starting with a week in Cartmel from tomorrow, to coincide with my eldest son's wedding on Saturday - hope the weather holds. Then a days change over and a week in the sun in Gran Canaria. I'll be packing my running stuff for both excursions - looking forward to a change of running scenery.
Leslie - Great LSR, especially feeling stronger the further you got into it.
Abbers - I have to admit that cricket is way down the list of my sporting preferences, but your quad holding out despite your full 10 over allocation sounds impressive! Keep it steady on the mileage increases and all should be well.
Slokey - Excellent blog post about your tri build up and race day. Most inspirational.
TAR - New bike - lovely! 33 miles is nice going for your maiden voyage.
Rennur - Hope the hip is just a niggle.
Gul - A haircut is also part of my training for today - ha.
7.1 yesterday with 12x400 (90 secs recovery) and more early morning biking today.
