Poacher - yes, I'm looking forward to the hills, although I suspect my legs aren't. Literatin - thanks for the heads-up on the bookshop! 15 miles d&d at silly o'clock this morning - longest run since July 2011, I think. The rhodadendrons are usually in full bloom by now at Sandringham but they looked a poor show this morning. Good luck to Speedy, Frazer and Ant plus anyone else racing this weekend. Catch up next week!
Lorenzo - I expect it was a bit nippy out on the beach this morning! GM - you'll be back in the swing of morning runs soon. I live in King's Lynn in Norfolk, so it's a fair jaunt from the east to west coast to Southport. Ant - good hilly run. Best of luck with the HM. KR - I am seriously thinking of knocking this evening run on the head - maybe one experiment which is doomed to fail. I have much more control over the mornings. Minni - great news. Steady as she goes. Poacher - I'm heading over to Derbyshire for the Bank Holiday weekend - Bonsall, near Matlock. Do you know any nice shortish runs in the area? PMJ - those reps look fairly consistent to me and a decent pace. I've just realised that I need to re-schedule Saturday's 15 miler (not a wise move to go out for a long run the second we arrive in Derbyshire), so it'll be an extra early start tomorrow morning.
Lorenzo - nice reps. My wife is from just down the road in the equally lovely Mexborough. AR - excellent 10k session. Mennania - did those mile reps involve the hill?! They are super fast miles, but to string them together in a set of reps is very impressive. No wonder your calf was complaining. Hope it's okay. GM - stringing together some very nice lunchtime sessions. MsE - sounds like you will need a lot of patience. Hang on in there. Ant - nice you can pop over to Blighty. Windy - that's a lot closer to Southport than I'll get all year. Managed to squeeze in an 8 mile steady run after all last night, although it also involved 2 errands. 3 mile recovery run d&d earlier this morning.
Ant - hope you had a good holiday resting those feet. GM - sounds like a good way to spend a lunchtime. Good luck giving up smoking. OG - do you have to do an unplanned 26.2 training run each year or is it okay to schedule it in? SJ - good restraint. Bike It - are you still in Japan or have you moved on to California now? You'll soon be in danger of being caught on speed cameras! KR - yes, that does sound tough, especially at your paces! Windy - well spotted - I need a bigger screen to read the pie. 3 mile recovery run d&d. Tonight's run looks in jeopardy already
JD3 - well done on bagging the first 20 miler. Sooo looking forward to doing that in the not too distant future. SJ - great weekend of training. Just need to keep your feet on the ground KR - good effort in the league race - what are hills? GM - nice nippy lunchtime run. Speedy - after all that effort you just have to get your points. Hope it gets sorted. PMJ - that's a lot of travelling for 2 x 200m ! Poacher - don't forget to say hello Lorenzo's mate Alan. OG - thanks, now I feel young 'cos my daughters are only 12 and 15 9 slow miles this morning.
