Toby, you're consistently running good miles, despite the heat.

Tillstar, hope the hamstring settles down nicely.

Nice 15 miles along the seafront this morning. Ok, so it was a planned run/walk but still the longest I've run this year and I kept to a reasonable overall time.

Happy Runnings

Longest run of the year so far, 15 miles this morning. Definitely helped by the drop in temperature!

Consistent running there Just Run.

Clag, hope the new shoes work for you.

Looks like we should win this month

Happy runnings

Hi everyone. I have been mostly lurking on this thread, drawing inspiration from all your good running stories! Hope it'll be okay to take a more active part in the discussions.

I've definitely been helped by all that talk of running mojo's a short while back. Mine seems to have returned with the hot weather! 10 miles, this morning, mostly on the seafront, with a few faster miles thrown in. Felt really good to be out there, and glad I was able to get out before the sun was too strong!!

Happy runnings

10.2 this morning, including some mile intervals along the seafront. Glad I managed to get there before the sun was too high!

Happy runnings everyone

Had to limit my running last week as I began to feel the effects of worn trainers!! Completed my second run in my new running shoes this morning. I definitely noticed the difference (it's partly and age related thing!)

Well done on your recent runs JR, hope you enjoyed the mud

Happy runnings

Hope you've all been having good weeks.

Sorry to hear about the bug CR, hope you make a quick and full recovery.

Glad you had a good day last weekend JR.

Just clocked another 6 miles this evening. Not too warm and for the first time this year, I managed to keep a reasonable pace up. It felt so much better

Happy runnings everyone

Sub 1hr 40 mins HM

Hi HKPL, Not sure that I can advise you specifically, but from my own experience, my best HM's have been off much lower mileage, running just 3 - 4 times per week, but apart from the recovery run, I made every run count (which means getting good rest!)

Basically, per week I ran:

one LSR (about 16-24k, so occasionally I ran slightly over distance)

one very short recovery run (5k),

one flat 'interval' session, (intervals were .5 miles or 1 miles each total of 3 - 6 miles at pace, but not completely flat out, with 400 metre rests)

one hill repeats (.5 mile warm up, then up to 10 x 300 metres up hill, with slow jog down. Again, the intervals were not necessarily flat out, but they were an effort -and I didn't start with 10!!! )

As you can guess, I didn't start by running all those intervals, but I built them up gradually, so that I was doing that sort of weekly run for the last four weeks of training prior to taper.

I also did Pilates to keep the core strength up.

Hope that helps, or maybe gives you some ideas to think about.

Good luck

5 for me today, lovely and warm (glad it was a gentle training run and not trying to push the pace!)

Hope you have a good day tomorrow JR.
