Col, that's a pain with the short 10k, still a great time.
Minni, irritating calf. As 2old suggests, any tightness in hamstring, glutes or quads, Foam roll yourself? AA?
Spoons, pissed and 19 miles walk, sounds good.
O4S nice biking.
2old, there is a video of the 10 in 10, some looked pretty good to me. If you're still in Bowness, I can recommend a cafe
Re: easy pace, 8mm does sound fast, surely it's meant to be aerobic building, can't really force easy? I go around 8:00-8:30mm. Long runs at 8:15-30 for 3:15.
After Thursday up down hill, managed to get to Sat club speed session for first time in months, with ultras, marathon and also flooding. Late getting there so had to run in my trail jacket with my phone and some uphill in our route. 10 x 0.25m, but all done in 1:20-1:28.
Today wanted to get a long run in for possible June / July ultra or races, so 4.5m before club trail run to do 15.5m total, longest run since VLM. Legs tired with 3 days running but felt good.
It's a really nice run. Enjoyed it last year even with the freezing cold and rain.
Andrew, it's hilly in the middle then nicely downhill. Perfect as a marathon training run, nice even pace miles 1-8, similar 14-20 without running flat out. I got a PB compared to a pancake flat 20miler 6 months before.
Id also recommend it over a half if training for a October marathon. 20 mile way more important.
Ikle, Jovi and I will have to meet for some Mojitos during Thunder Run to make up unless another meet is planned.
Last night went to N Wales, pal is doing the Excalibur marathon tomorrow & wanted to stretch legs so we ran up and down the summit of Moel Famau twice 1.6m x 4, 16-17 mins up, 12-13 down. Now that is a hill (nearly a mountain) ! Soaked through, but we had a giggle. Coffee and cake afterwards of course.
Good luck to LO65, Quinn, and others doing various marathons. Fido this weekend too?
CG, 50 miles per week pre-marathon stage? . Respect. What are you aiming for p&d, 70 miles or the 90?
Minni, nooo calf again. and Chic too? Massage definitely helps me,. and physio when have been injured.
Ant, with that 5:40 mile this week and that killer speed session, your 10k PB is surely going to fall soon, 41 mins?
Spoons awesome reps 2 days ago, and a tough tempo run so soon after? You're running a lot better than you think you are.
2old thats great news you were able to go out and run.
MRT circuit Wednesday evening, lots of plyometrics, jumping in and out of tractor tyre, a burpee combined with a box jump which was . Didn't manage many speed sessions Feb to April for VLM (3 or 4?), but came close to puking in this circuit. Very similar result? Knee all fine too.

Coffee and cake afterwards of course.
