LMH - that's annoying timing. Don't stress over the missed training - you've put a lot of work in and that won't vanish in the space of a few days (or more). Better to do nothing now and get back into some running sooner. You're on holiday anyway so good timing from that perspective! Hope it heals quickly.
RB - that sounds like sandbagging, I don't believe you're not in sub 3 shape. Good luck!
I did 7M yesterday on my lunch break - wasn't wearing a GPS or anything (just an analogue watch) and surprised to find it only took 43:30. I was working a bit but really pushing it. I then remeasured it on gmap when I got back and it really was 7M - maybe gmap is a bit off but it seems OK compared to GPS on other runs. Anyway. good news that I can still run at a reasonable pace, although I'm always tapered so maybe that helps!
ES - these events where they run about 5 races simultaneously seem to be becoming the norm (I guess cost isn't increased much but revenue is). Sounds like it would have been quite chaotic on that course, so well done (and a nice long run to back it up).
Wardi - decent mileage there. I didn't watch Berlin but read about it and sounds like it was a great race. They would have had the WR without a bit of surging/slowing in 35-40km from what I read. Would love to see those 2 plus Kipchoge race in the spring - I still believe Kipchoge is basically invincible at the moment.
Only had a couple of short slots for training at the weekend so did 7M inc. 3M "progressive tempo" on Saturday (3M were 5:51, 5:42 and 5:27) then 55 mins on the turbo on Sunday inc. 2x20mins (around 315W average). Both decent pace/power for me so I seem to be maintaining a semblance of fitness.
SL - fantastic 50k, especially with the other runners in the way and having something to spare at the end.
AlanB - well done on getting that session done. That has to be one of the hardest marathon training sessions, but probably one of the most beneficial.
Dan - sounds like you're in decent shape. My favourite session is 20x300 with 100 jog recovery, with the jog being at a decent pace (say 8 m/m) and straight into the next rep. I've found I can actually get a decent 5M time with that session! It helps to have someone of a similar pace to do it with though.
Not much training going on here, but enjoying watching mini-Padams growing up - he seems to change on a daily basis!
CD - ah yes, I think I remember now you mentioned Mallorca a while ago. Yes, I've probably ridden the route although when I was there we tended to ride it the other way around (the descent is better the other way). It's on my list of IMs I'd like to do, that list also including Roth, Whistler and Lanzarote (and I wouldn't mind going back to Kona, mainly just for the holiday!).
TR - good to see you pop in and that you're still doing a bit, even if you've binned autumn marathon plans. It's very easy to get stressed/worried about lots of baby-related issues, so I'm trying to stay calm to hopefully stop others (mainly Mrs Padams) getting stressed.
Dan - some very nice training there, especially that last 800! Is that a PB?!
CD - I hadn't realised you were doing an IM. Which one? (Wales?)
Still just ticking over, mainly running with the dog but did manage to get down to the club on Tuesday night and do half the session (I did 4x800 on the grass).
Trying to make a plan of sorts for next year - mainly would like to have another go at our club's 12 hour race. I did 18 laps (72M) last year and would like to do 20 laps, which should be doable given I had 1h45 left when I stopped last time, and there were various things I did wrong.
