Leslie - Sorry you have to wait another week. We went to see some friends last night, so I knew I wouldn't get much sleep! SJ - hope you were up earlier than me then - good luck with the SBU35! GM - still thinking of you and the tough time you're having. Birch - congratulations - nice photo and cake! You just managed to head out before I finished today. MsE - is that 15 mins from when you posted?! Maybe dodging all the other folk and their animals didn't help with the pacing. VTr - cracking mileage - best take it easy before the race. Fishy - good reps. Bike It - good to hear from you. Good luck with the return to training. Lorenzo - good long run. I must experiment with some fuelled running soon. These late nights are playing havoc with my schedule. Not out till 4:42 today. 21 miles in just over 3 hours. So that's the time on feet run d&d
Birch - Thanks - no rush then! Hope you're recovering from the furniture removal and the 14 miler - well done. 6 slow miles for me today. Looks like I only be getting a handful of hours' sleep again tonight before Saturday's LSR.
Leslie - good luck at the physio's tomorrow. Lorenzo - welcome home! Nice hilly run - good prep for Comrades. Poacher - I always thought DM stood for Dangermouse. 11 mile tempo run this morning, including 7 @ 6:47 m/m. Certainly blew a few cobwebs away.
Birch - I managed to get back before the serious rain started yesterday! No stress on Sunday - we're always pretty laid back and informal - just busy on Sunday morning trying to sort everything whereas normally I'd have all week! marrows - well done to your other half. GM - sounds like a good bank holiday weekend. After my holiday it was 7 weeks to Mablethorpe. So I am planning 2 full-on weeks, 1 cut-back, another 2 hard weeks and then 2 taper weeks. This will be the 2nd week, so looking for somewhere around 65 miles with maybe a 21 miler this weekend. SJ - impressive holiday continues. 10 easy miles inc. 10 x 100m strides this morning.
