Nell- good to see all is going to plan. Unlike  Barry, I find hitting the target paces tough even without this wind . Yesterday running head on into a 20 mph wind reduced that particular mile from about 7.45 to 8.30 mm. Tough TM session there 

11 miles in the wind(21mph) and rain. 5 mile warm up including 2 at tempo pace followed by 6 long hill intervals. Strangely very enjoyable. Got almost as wet as last nights swim.

Chick- enjoy your foul 6 miler. I'm going to cheat and run uphill with a 20mph wind on my back.

AA-hope you are making a fast recovery now you are on antibiotics.Are you getting the odd run in?

Pink-sorry to hear about the loss. Hope the injury sorts out soon too.Guess you will still be swimming

Free-good to see you back up and running.Wont take long for you to get back up to speed.Some good mileage anyway.Im wondering about Abbo, though like you Ive signed up before(twice) and not got to the start.

Chick-how are you doing?

O4S-recovered from your holiday?

Miss2O back on track for VLM after a 16 mile LR on Friday -so we may yet still run it at the same time.

Anyone got any races coming up? Liverpool HM on 28th for me if I dont squeeze something else(10k?, 20m?) in in the meantime.

Didnt do the YKW on Saturday and went to Windermere instead for the night. Sunday 9.4 miles with 6 at mp. Yesterday, a very tough steady 9 miles in gale force wind plus swim club last night.Quite pleased with the latter-Im not much behind the gang who go 3 times a week.8 or so miles with hill reps today my schedule tells me.

AA/Free- lots of positive vibes from me to you both ....a few days off recovering won't hurt with all you have both banked. 

Chick- well done getting that run in after your niggle. Let's hope you can put in a decent spell of running. 

O4S- I'm exhausted reading about all you've done on your hols. Don't suppose youll be less busy from now on either. 

17.4 miles today ,7.45 mm average. Still very windy which made some of the run tougher and was also energy draining. Can't believe it's the last day of Feb tomorrow and I'm not looking forward to March -it's always a tough month for me both physically and mentally . Got a massage booked for Monday and may have to see my GP too as I've been coughing up green stuff for a couple of weeks.

quiet here!

O4S- yes my sanity is in doubt....like someone else here Very good HM but did you try hard enough if you could do all that other stuff.  Keep up the good work. 

Tues 12miles ,7.21 pace , Weds 7miles easy, yesterday 2k swim. Longish run today maybe YKW tomorrow.

O4S-impressive results on your "holiday"Your wava's should be in the 90s though so are you trying hard enoughMaybe a few rest days will helpyou peak

Pink-thats a bummer about the injury.Hope the physio is right.When you changed your shoes were they a different brand?Maybe they are responsible.Try the next run in your old ones.Stay positive

Pink/Barry-2 Orcas? That makes you a pod...sorry

Barry-I wouldnt worry about the 5 today which to me looks pretty decent anyway, that was a tough swim yesterday(good times too) on top of a draining pacey15 miler. Your splits are about my 5k,10k and HM paces on a good day.Some runs should be easy you knowI AM going to do do at least one Olly this Summer,

Booked Wimslow sprint tri for May as I need to look beyond April for my sanity.My mate has already signed up and put 7.39 as his 400m swim time.This made me realise I'm neglecting my swims (I'm not injured! touch wood) and am going to be left behind so did 2k at lunchtime concentrating on 100m sprints.

Barry-you were lucky recovering your watch.That was a well paced 15-you'vd done a number of them now and the pace seems to have got faster by about 10secs a mile.Is your perceived effort level about the same?At this rate by April you'll have knocked off another 10secs at least. Nice wet suit-I borrowed one of those when I started and accidentally ripped it which made me a bit unpopular.

Free-very good 20 there -you clearly had more in the tank too even after that weeks mileage in your legs.Things looking positive for the marathon.

Nell-7.39 seems so slow for you. What sort of mileage per week does your plan require you to do?I bet you find running faster easier than the slow easy runs.Not sure I'd have the faith to limit myself to 16 mile LRs.

O4S-very good racing,wonder how your duathlon went?

Carrot-that was a tough weekend by you by any reckoning.

My schedule lets me have an easier week this week and no LR, not sure how I feel about that? Anyway today was a rest day so I have done some spinning and ran just over 4miles easy. Mulling over which events to enter after London-my pal is putting more emphasis on swimming-Dee 2k,Coniston 2miler,GNS-2m,Coniston length 5.25miles and wont be persuaded to increase his Tris to at least Olly distance. Might have to go solo I guess.

Didn't overdo it on my hols ,30 miles running some at MP and some at HM pace ,couple of miles swimming ,Pilates ?,spinning.  Emphasis was on sun ,rest and wine. 

Saw that aweful weather would arrive here about 10am so got out for my LR at just after 7am. Chilly but very pleasant. Sort of progressive run ending with 3 miles at 7.20,7.25 and 7.20 .22.4 miles at 8.01 av pace. I have to say I preferred running at the faster pace. My body hates the 9-8.20 mm range...odd?. 52 for the week.

Ola all. Back from sunny tenerife and what a contrast in weather! Too much laziness by me so rearing to go now ....not 

Minni- minor niggles that's all at the mo and to be expected for an old crock like me. Great to see you rehabilitating TRI style. It worked wonders for me on more than one occasion and my best marathon time resulted from mixing TRI and running (Barry we are expecting big things) . It also helped me with speed tpo. Talking of bricks ,I swim like one .Careful not to overdo it. Wet suits are lots of entertainment in the early days taking them off and putting them on. Long nails aren't a good idea too 

Barry- bet the TRI exhibition was like taking a child to a toy shop. Which wet suit did you go for ? More high quality stuff from you again this week too. 

Free- hope the 20 went well and you finished before the cr@p weather arrived 

AA- hope the cold goes quickly. Guess your immune system will be low after your recent races. 

Pink- HB to you .Whitch wet suit are you getting. Are female wet suits different? Should be some interesting responses to this Hope you had a good Chinese meal. Mine last night played havoc in my run today . Glad to see the hammy is improving too. I gave the GTS 14s , discounted now you are buying the 15s 

O4S- get in the pool and stop complaining especially as you must have about 15 mins when your not otherwise engaged training. Spain does some nice wine these days wonder what they are palming off to you ? Enjoy the hectic ? holiday. Maybe a day sunbathing could be squeezed in...call it inactive recovery 

Nell - you seem a bit under the weather. Keep going. Only 9 weeks until London 

Chick- it's tough for you at the mo. You need some sun to recover in. In the meantime keep rollering

Carrot- 20 with 8 at MP is a tough session. Good going. You're running has gone up a few notches. Impressive
