Stewart - Probably not, it'll be London or Barcelona if I do a marathon next spring but I think I'm going to do an ultra in April. I will be through in Stirling to watch as I know quite a few people who are doing it. I'm lead to believe it's going to be a bit lumpy in places but can't picture all the roads to be honest. I think it finishes with 2 or 3 laps of the city centre, which would be mentally tough.
NP - Glad to hear the injury is clearing up The swimming will have kept you fit!
NN - Nice tempo run today and a good 9 yesterday too
OH - Hope you got out tonight, and good luck for Sunday Looks a tough route!
Ollie - Don't think I'd ever call 13 miles a recovery run! Although I'm sure I jokingly title a 20 miler as a recovery run on strava, as it was the day after my 10k PB... There wasn't much recovery involved!
Tek - Well done on the club run, I doubt you'll get a sensible HR reading in this heat/humidity anyway. As you say, hopefully it'll be snowing in Frankfurt!
My ridiculous September race list looks like it's about to get a bit more ridiculous. I had forgot that there is a monthly track meet at the stadium in my town, can't do Augusts as it's next Wednesday and I'm racing Friday (and they aren't doing the event I fancy anyway) but I think I might give the 1500 a go the following month. Unfortunately it falls 3 days after a (jogged) marathon, and 4 days before a 10k which might be ran after a 15 mile warm up.
Ollie - Jeezo, that's some MP run!! Isn't that close to your tempo pace from a few weeks ago!!? Cracking run, and brilliant weekly miles
MG - Did you sleep much over the course of the day? Pretty solid pacing for the 5 laps, I expected the drop off towards the end would be more noticeable! well done
Fiona - Good work on the cycling (off and on road) and a good couple of runs
Tricia - Well done on the 5 miles
HM - Good 4 miles yesterday
2nd non running day in 4 days for me! I'll actually try to stick to the plan this week, so I've 2 tempo runs (5 @ HMP, probably tomorrow and 10 @MP on Sunday) as well as a couple of decent length midweek efforts as well as my first attempt at leading our running group session on Saturday.
Gym this morning, possibly go swimming afterwards but maybe not.
