Moraghan Training - Stevie G

Been meaning to have a word about that one Ric 

Drafting's is a perfectly fair tactic in my view though. It's just being smart - though not in the same way as Trump not paying taxes!

I wish I'd had some lankster to tuck in behind in that GSR SG! That was some wind along the front and the zig-zagging to try and find some shelter probably added as much time as the wind itself! Still, if I'd finished any quicker I would have missed the once in a life time of chundering in the background shot of Jo Pavey being interviewed live on TV . Still a PB too!

Tonight's run home tonight continued the sequence of perfectly acceptable paced XCs of late. All 8:20 ish compared to 9+. Nothing great, but considerably better than earlier this year. I suspect the run of low mileage weeks has been helpful. That bloody adductor thing is still complaining though!

They've got those Yurbud things I was talking about in Sports Direct High Wycombe for £9.99 Mr G... As I said before, mine have NEVER fallen out while running and even sound OK. They come in different sizes, so you may want to try them on sneakily before buying them though.

Double 6 commute for me today. Hope the fog stays away until after I'm home, as I hate using a head torch in the fog!

Kind of regret not racing today, but it was a good lie in 

I see Pippa Woolven won the Frieth Hilly 10k outright a couple of weeks ago, by a minute over Ross Langley!

Nicely done CC (the XC, not the kitchen incident!!!). Always nice to have someone in ridiculous attire to spur you on 

Cracking time that Dachs - hugely impressive on an off-road course!

Hilly 7.2M xc for me this morning after similar 7.6M yesterday. Decided not to race as I wanted a long lie in! Makes 52 for the week, so my frst 50+ week for a wile.

On a whim, I decided to attack a strava segment topped by our guest last week, Gareth. I was going great guns until right at the end of the segment, when a stoopid labrador refused to obey its equally dozy owner and decided to change direction and cross right in front of me at the last minute Full on collision left us both sprawling on the floor in pain! No lasting damage (to me, or the dog as far as I could tell in the time it took me to swear at the owner!) but needless to say I didn't get the segment!

Are you having an argument with yourself there Philip?

Surely "Le parkrun" anyway?

I was cold this morning. Despite thick long sleeve thermal top, buff and gloves, my fingers were very painful at times.

Bit of a dire run anyway - I felt like abandoning after the first couple of miles, and was struggling to maintain even 8:11 avg pace on the long climb to the half-way point. My leg was hurting (but not the normal location!) and I thought of Zatopek's advice that when it hurts you should speed up. I did and it worked! Still uncomfortable, but managed to steel myself to carry on and shaved a bit off the pace over the last few miles to end the 15.3 on 7:48 pace average. Still slow, but at least it's out of the way!

I saw that one coming Philip...

Don't know that one SG!

Philip - you can't quote Dachs talking about your "ejaculation of pedantry" then in the next line tell us how you have been taken over by Siemens.

That's a sure fire way to end up in a sticky situation.

Emma Cox perhaps?

Got to the track, but short on time, so a quick rolling 200s (well, actually not very quick at all, but a short session!). 6 x 200m off 200m jog then in a positively tardy 40. 38,38,37,37,37.Definitely reminds me that short distances are not my thang, as they were still hard despite being slow!
