Grand day out then SG 

LSR today. Emphasis very much on the 'S' !! 14.1M hilly, to make my first 50 mile week for 7 weeks!

Some very nice reps going on chaps. SG - you going to put hem into practice any time again soon?

Talking of which - rubbish parkrun today! Forgot my Garmin, then finished in my slowest time this year and lowest finishing place ever at the Rye -18:39 and 7th.

It was hot, but I just didn't have the legs for it.

Still a very good time Dachs.  The bounce back today is just one of those weird mysteries of running!

Simon - not a drink, just give shade from the pounding sun!

Track today and as feared it was a rubbish session! Intended 6x800m at 5k pace as a nice simple session, but abandoned after 4 as they were all slow, and getting slower, and my legs just felt like they wanted none of it! Not surprising, but still disappointing that it seems to take me forever to recover from anything these days.....

Wise words, softly spoken Mr F 

Still a bloody quick time by mortal standards anyway Dean!

Likewise Dachs - impressive parkrunnning.

Quality sessions in the heat from Mr C and Mr CC too! My track session is due tomorrow and should be cooler (but will still be pants ).

Getting the bike miles in though AG?

Double 6 today. Thank heavens for beech woods is all I can say

Madness Simon

Oo er Iron! Pen y  fan is the bigger than Fan y Big ironically....

Bit scorchio at lunchtime! 5M road, with the aim of just trying to remind the legs what a bit of speed felt like so overall steady, but with 1M at MP and one at 10k pace (which was most unpleasant!).

Everyone away or something????

No LSR today for me. 7.3 hilly xc, which felt like about 15! Kinda nice to be out in the sun though

Cracking race and report there Dachs! even time for a bit of flirting

Quick (if slightly frustrating) 3000 Simon and a rather splendid set of 400s last night!

Hello Matt - I was wondering if you were going to post again . Now I understand what the head torch is for! Presumably a clockwise attempt? Depending on pace of course, you'll need pretty good battery life of around 6+ hours unless you get a full-moon and a clear night. The Petzl NAO will do it, but you'd want to be used to it first to get the best battery life out of it and it's probably not the most comfortable one for that length of time. One of the more powerful Black Diamond jobs may be a better bet as they have a reliably long battery life and you can take standard AAAs as spares, as will the LED Lenser SEO 7R. Not used this one, but it looks a cracking torch - comfy and bright - and has great reviews, like this one:

My legs are improving but still not yet up for a run, so biked to work instead.

It makes your times even more remarkable Dean! Your emphasis is clearly on quality over quantity and it definitely works for you. I suspect my endurance would suffer and my weight increase, but I do think my 10k and 5k times would actually improve though if I reduced mileage, improved quality of key sessions and didn't eat so much though!

Quiet on here today?

My quads are still shagged, so no running today. On the plus side, I can just about walk down stairs again now . It's a weird feeling - like I have no control over my own quadriceps! It's putting a big dent in my year for year mileage comparison

Tempo Runs - tell me they should hurt!
