Hey folks!

DS!!!!! Welcome back and brilliant story! Im so glad that I could be a part of your journey If you are interested in joining another set of nutters then I now have my own online running group! You can find us on facebook, Monkey Tag Running

JR your training is really coming along eh?! Amazing stuff, well done!

330 - great consistency from you, well done!!

My training at the moment all feels a little short and slow but I guess I have been racing parkrun every week for a little while now.

30 minute run on the mill at lunch, maybe a 5/6 mile tonight.

Really not long to go now till the london double, no idea how im going to do on the day but ill worry about that on the day! For now its all about keeping my head down and trying to get some miles in.

You guys are doing so well!! I cant seem to get my butt moving at the moment for any significant distance. Maybe still a little bit of post marathon blues hanging on I guess?

Oh well still got a month to pull something out of the bag!!

JR oh yeah for sure! My one, with the exception of one nasty bump is pancake flat and pathway. The only things that can slow you down a little are the tight corners and congestion. there are a couple of places that get a bit bottle necked. To show how fast this one is, this weeks winner came in at 16:27!!!!! The course record? 14:45!!!!! :O just bonkers fast!

330 - ha ha ha hoping I can dip under the rader and just get it done

hey folks, parkrun for me again on Saturday and was more than happy to come away with another sub 23 Seem to be doing that as an average at the moment which is really positive. 22:50 was the official time. Really happy with it as my pb is 22:32!! Not quite sure at the moment how to go any faster!? Oh well I shouldn't be focusing on that at the moment with all the long stuff coming up

ah I see! Its just a hill, we like hills remember?!!   

Tough night at the gym last night. 20 min row, 20 min spin, 20 min cross trainer.

For the cross trainer bit I was holding the heart rate handles. I was giving it a fair amount of beans but averaged 137bpm?!? Guess all my long slow running over the last few years has helped! Also I guess you could argue in that case that I need to try harder ha ha ha

man you need some serious hill training for that one!! You sure do pick em, the WHW is a solid beast!! 95 miles with a 35 hour cut off shows its a tough one. most 100`s have around a 30 hour cut off.

Depending on how Loch Ness goes im pretty sure booking next year will be on the cards 330 Why not go for it this year and not aim for a time? Just go and enjoy it

hey folks, sorry I think im spreading my online presence a little thin lately!! Too many forums, profiles, blogs.....time to cut back a bit!! 330 just stick with it buddy and keep chatting to the monkeys they will keep you going! Less thinking, more doing. 

I was watching the Butterfly effect the other day. Time travel films always get me thinking. People seem to have the great ability to look backwards and know exactly what they should have done 10 years ago to change the future. If we thought about that right now in this present time, today could be the day you look back on 10 years from now! Grab the opportunity now, dont wait 10 years to look back and think "if only". Stop looking backwards. Today is the turning point that changed you 10 years from now.

Love and hugs

Future Me
