Interesting discussion regarding long runs. Personally I think you'll get more from a medium hard 20 than an easy 26.2 but surely it's about balance and ticking all boxes.
DrDave - Crivens that's some training, you're in fine fettle.
Jools - that's a solid 5K after you're excellent XC result.
Padams - Seems like a good session,
PP - Good track session.
Al - the bramley 20, maybe the Llanelli(I think that's how it's spelt) HM.
5+5 yesterday, 15 this morning with 10 Kenyans style hills
Al - I did a 22 off road hilly run on Tuesday and then a flat 23 on Sunday that had some 5.50 miles thrown in, alaTT and his surge runs. Heart rate was very pleasing.
Tmoth - 72 miles is a lot even with the weekend off, now is not the time to bury yourself.
AL_P - Looks like a great week but I got confused with all the numbers.
Tr - counts as a long run in my book.
Jools - what a great improvement and congrats on gold.
DanA - Impressive double, happy belated birthday.
Wardi - classic Long run.
TT - sounds like you have a plan, nice car.
sorry to those I've missed.
103 miles for the week, 23 yesterday, legs in one piece. Onwards and upwards
Jimbob - Sounds like my sort of run.
TR - I was working from home so grabbed a "long lunch"
Tmoth - Impressive stuff, but as per TR, keep a lid it on.
CL - Sounds like the training is doing you good, I'm sure the adaptation will come soon, I'm in a similar boat.
PP - Sounds like you're back at it, top bombing.
5+14 yesterday, a nice easy 5+5 today will give me 70 for the last 5 days and on course to break 100 for the first time in 2 years.
