If the other 10, 677 posts (well, 5,677 if you ignore Scott's ) on this thread hadn't convinced anyone of what sort of person you are Samir, that one sure did!

Looks very comfy Ric. Not sure it would have got me up and down Loughrigg fell though  (Philip's motor might have....)

Nicely done Ric.

Dean - I'm not surprised that session felt hard 

Rest day to day (just as well with the weather). I did an 8.5m hilly run last night after the drive back from the legs and my legs felt totally mashed. Only 30 miles total for the week, but a lot of climbing (and descending!), long hard walks, and two fell-races in 5 days so not too surprising. Hoping for a bit of a miraculous recovery as I'm also racing tomorrow. Just a 5M local trail race, so time not important, but no doubt a few local rivals to try and beat!

The first placed lady at Loughrigg last week was the 16 year-old daughter of a local Tring runner, Nigel Bunn, who I spoke to before the race. It was her first senior fell race and she beat me by a minute even though she only has a 20 min parkrun to her name! Her dad beat me by 2 mins, despite me being well in front at the half way point!! Both pretty good descenders!

That run is just ridiculous!! I've run those hills and that pace, for that distance, with three laps over that terrain is simply astounding! In many ways even more impressive than his VMLM time! Marigold - you are quickly becoming a legend! I'd love to see him take on some of the long , classic fell races

weird..., as I was saying, on incredibly rough boulders and cobbles which has battered my feet. Good excuse not to run now though!

 Who's racing this weekend?

Very tough session that Deanwifh such a quick rec. Just finished off the last of the STP, but deserved it after a long 14 miler round the Kentmere Horseshoe (walk with family rather than run). 9 Wainrights done in glorious sunshine and fantastic visibility. Only downer was the last mile down the Garburn Pass, which was a steep descent on rough b

Unlucky Stevie. Presumably the second half was uphill?

Chris Thompson himself said he didn't want to push the pace too hard on his debut, so could be more to come. Mind you, he did look pretty done in down the finishing straight!

He has a training blog and some of his sessions are mad! He runs across the Purbeck hills at the same pace I doa parkrun but also thinks nothing of doing 26 times 1 mile reps of a field for pacing practice! Very pleased for the guy and hope there is even more to come.

Having to double post due to Android/Firefox writing everything backwards if I press a return! Coledale results out tonight. I was 69th overall, which means I lost at least 50 places from the top of Grisedale Pike. FFS! Underlines just what a shit descender I am!!! Hey ho, need to move somewhere I can train on the righ terrain I guess!
