Good Ultra tactics there Poacher, can't believe she even admitted what she was doing!
A good long run Gul and mileage for the week.
Still a good weeks mileage there Lorenzo, sometimes it is tough to hit the pace on given day.so don;t let it get you down.
A tough pace to run that slow PMJ especially i think as it can change your running form. Yes, got Manchester down as my target race on April 10th. Good to see the consistent weeks are coming back. Like the 20 mile pace you did there yesterday.
Probably not a bad thing Birch missing Dewsbury and resting the knee.
Like the burning picture Badbark. Your stalker seemed very close in that image. Impressive 10k time and WAVA stats and like you say 2 weeks from a marathon too.
Building up the mileage steady there Leslie.
16 miles for me on Saturday and a tough one on paper with 12 miles @ MP. First 2 were steady @ 7.37 av pace, then I managed to slip into a 6.4x groove which I wasn't expecting. Overall pace for the 16 miles was 6.51 and the 12 miles @ MP came out at 6.44 av. Another 67 mile week and I was tempted to go for a 3 mile run today to get to 70, but thought a day of rest might be better.
Abbers, I've not seen the weather until now you just mentioned it. Looks like it will be wet tomorrow indeed! Re kids birthday parties, it was my youngest 9th birthday last week and we had a sleepover in the local tennis club with 18 kids. It also tied in with my running club presentation night at the pub up the road. I dropped hints about nipping out for a quick pint - didn't go down too well so I didn't go. However it turns out I won the Outstanding Male performance award and also a Gold standard grade award too. A bit gutted now I couldn't pick them up on the night.
Nice early start and good mileage for the week GM. 6 runs in 6 days is good and consistent too. To be honest mid 60's is about right I think for weekly mileage for me and I think it only peaks at 70 (P&D 55 - 70 schedule)
