Chick-like the idea that 7 miles is a starting point

Oomp- I know I am running my runs too fast but I am not yet on a marathon schedule. My Achilles keeps warning me it's too soon My runs are relatively short and are part of my TRI training routine so I suppose I'm trying to make them all count inbetween the swims and spinning . Nell on the other hand is marathon training . Glad to see that hilly run went well .Looks like Sunday was a blip.

Nell-pretty good running by you too-are you doing a long or short taper?

Barry-tested the achilles again yet?

Swim club last night-1.9k-all of us in separate lanes so no drafting or hiding-shattered today.Achilles grumbling a bit more than Id like so will start my taper for Sundays tri today

Chick-welcome back.I have to search to find this thread.Great news that you're over the niggle and building again.You are half a mile ahead of me -my max is 7.5 miles. I will do some longer stuff next week when the tris finish. Yes , missing the old crew too...dont forget DD too.If this carries on maybe we should jointhe 3.15ers? Ive decided active recovery is the way to deal with my achilles(and state of mind)

7miles this lunchtime 7.26mm

Barry- I would do a couple of short runs over the next few days then on Friday aim for 12 slow . If all ok 16 on Sunday. If ok 18 next week ,20 the week after .But that's me and I'm no expert I'm going to move forward carefully- London is my target now

nell- very disciplined run. Don't think the missed half mile will matter 

Oomp- you need both qualities for this pass time. 

Pink- drafting is the way to swim fast. I need to go to my club more often . Don't worry about tris They are fun fun fun. 

Kfc- think you summed up why I hate being injured. 

7.5 miles last night -719mm av -and it was hot. An hour spinning and two hours golf !!!  Today. Signed up for a 10k in October and a HM early December . Fingers crossed my body holds together.

KFC-very good fell racing and superior podium and bling too. So impressive especially as it looks as though you had a really enjoyable time

Omph-I am constantly inspired by the toughness (apart from your hip skin)of you guys and sometimes pain is only in the mind. You have pushed yourself pretty hard these last few weeks and maybe a bit of recovery is needed.To do a HM at this stage is a big ask.Im looking for the moment when I feel ready but as I havent ran more than 7.5 miles in the last month I am holding off. You'll get there. ..

2.5k swim today

Barry- great to see you making progress with the Achilles. I guess Abbo is still a real possibility ?  Good swimming too ..bet Pink was mad!

My 5k in the tri-21.35 was about a minute slower than yesterdays which is understandable after all that went before. Bit disappointed with my swim-500m in 10.19 - as so many finished well under 9mins ...have to work on my technique and swim more. Still it was different swimming in an outside 33m brine pool.

Nell- very good 16 even with the weight of undigested steak in you.  Whilst I'm no expert 7.35 is a good pace for a LR with a 3.05 marathon in mind. Thanks for the S&C ideas. I will see if I can exercise some discipline to do some of it. 

North West Sprint TRI in Nantwich today. Pretty happy with 1.16.28 ,81st and first in age group. I need a rest.

Nell-10 at that pace with 16 more tomorrow is good going. Enjoy the birthday celebration. What routines do you follow in your S&C? I'm determined to solve my injury problem and think that may help.

Kiwi- wise decision but Abbo won't be tha same without you ...(or me  )and anyone else whose doubtful for it. Looks like youreon the verge of beating that knee niggle 

Oomp- that's why we run  ! Think age is catching up with me zzzzzzzz
