Morning, and a September one at that!

Lyrics: We danced until the night became a brand new day
Two lovers playing scenes from some romantic play

What: hopefully an easy run this morning, then the evening session is 10 x 30 seconds with a jog recovery.

Why: trying not to lose what little speed I have

Dustin: doubt I will do the Nationals but aim to be there.

Wabo: Assembling? 

OL: have you checked last year's results? Will you have a mini taper before Sunday?

Lyrics: possible

Well done, OH, on the swim challenge. Keep it up!

LMH: will almost certainly do Ron Hill's Birthday 5k, but it won't be an "A" race as it isn't the fastest of courses. May get down to one of the Last Friday of the Month 5ks in Hyde Park. Need to find another race or two plus am considering doing my first cross country season for around 35 years!

What: a rather wet and gentle 5.36k 

Why: easy day/day 760

August figures: 200.86k, 31 days run, 1 race (21:43/5k), 2 parkruns not flat out.

What: 7k, including 1k warm up and down, with the other 5k pushing various sections

Why: visiting the hills of HM via Burnage Rugby Club. Wanted a toughish workout and got it. Earned my refreshment afterwards.

Good to see you SC...and trust you are in relatively good health!

I was wondering what OL's target is also, given that most of it is off road, I think!

Lyrics: no

Surprised at th 50k decision, LMH. Re tiredness, was fine during yesterday's longer run...I just seem to be tired by the end of the week.

What: 30 mins or so, probably fartlek, this evening

Why: putting a bit of effort in

Do you swim there, or kayak? Followed no doubt by a ceilidh.

So what's next on the race calendar, OH?

Tapering this week, OH? Or is the forthcoming weekend without a race? Sounds like a decent day's training. 

This morning was Chorlton Water Park, Uni fields, Sale Water Park and return. Tomorrow may well see the hills of HM Common.

Afternoon! As soon as I wrote that we hadn't got Bank Holiday weather it clouded over and went quite cool, which was probably better for...

What: 12k, largely off road, with 2k to meet L65, 8k with her, 2k back. 69:19 mins.

Why: suited both of us

And now we have sun, but not quite hit 20 degrees yet.

Hi Dustin: I don't know the 610, but DCRainmaker (an unlikely name but the "go-to" man for reviews) does...

Friends have commented that as they get older the thing that is most important to them is the size of the numbers! I have the Forerunner 310XT, as does LMH I think: decent sized digits! All depends what you want it to do, eg heart rate. I only use the basic functions on mine. Some of the newer models like the Garmin Vivoactive have a built in heart rate monitor rather than having t wear a strap.
