Chick, No - package is statutory minimum Glad you're achilles seems to be on the mend, patience is the secret as you know.

Welcome Bunnybeach. I have a tendancy towards DrDan's observations as far as your HRmax goes. Those 400s were quick!!!

VT, Thanks for that. I hope you're right. Good luck with the fizz results.

35mins yesterday on the mill at 9:20 pace. 40mins outside tomorrow Next week I hope to do 3 runs outside in the region of 5miles each.

VT, hope you got away with a 24hr thingy. Great 18 miler too.

Apologies for not posting. As well as the injury problems I have been very busy at the Cricket Club, where I am VP and an active coach. Lots of admin work. We had an arson attack on the May bank holiday and we have had a huge operation refurbishing. Plus we had agreed to stage the League Showpiece Cup Final on August Bank Holiday Sunday so there was a lot of panic in getting the Club repaired and the ground ready. Anyway everything went really well and all parties were suitably impressed.

Coupled with the fact I am being made redundant. Original date was 6th August but have had 2 extensions, I am now due to finish 28th November. So a lot of sh*t going down, and applying for jobs etc etc.

Sounds like you guys have been doing fine without me anyways......

"Ecce Signum" - I am guessing that's Andy?

Nightmare continues for me. After getting going again after last Autumn's hamstring problems and debacle at Amsterdam, I came down with a touch of PF. Hopefully over it now and just starting to build-up (again!). Not sulked as drastically as usual and have made regular visits to the gym for biking, rowing and some S&C. Managed 20mins jog yesterday and planning to do 25mins on the treadie tomorrow.

Anybody willing to write a quick catch-up for me?

cleanshoes, stepping up from 3 to 5 runs per week is a big jump. Make sure ALL your runs are ~70% to start with. You need to ensure your body gets used to the reduced recovery days first. When you know you can cope with the step up, (give it 2 weeks at least) then you can mix in some 75%. 6 weeks easy stuff before reassessing.

Cleanshoes, welcome and good luck! Stick around and post your results if you will.

I did a mini sub-lt yesterday - 40mins@80%. Came out at 7:34 pace. Oh hum! Just 30-odd seconds to knock off then.

Well done on finishing your marathon Chick - big pat on the back (but not too hard). Hope you recover well and come back stronger.

Andi, cracking stats. As someone has already stated you have had a great 12 months or so.

DrDan, I am guessing that you fast 5k is at Esholt? I'll be marshalling hopefully so will give you a cheer!

My weeks have gone 15-26-35-40, so I'm getting there. Hoping to get 45ish in this week with a long run of 1hr50. My knee is just about better.

Happy hadding All!
