Two climbs of around 100ft by the look of it Dachs, both spread over a mile, so not exactly steep, from 0.75-1.75 and 3-4. Not flat, but not too bad, and sometimes the variety can help...

How are you training your 'normals' Lit? They don't like running

Plates are good - easily, and hygienically, washed in a dishwasher too!

Sharp indeed - where you racing this weekend Dachs?

That's a long (and very quick!) treadmill session Matt - you must have a high boredom threshold to cope with that, never mind my solo 12.5 laps!! Must admit, I found it oddly enjoyable.

Good to hear Ric (the diagnosis that is, not the oscopy job, which sounds most unpleasant!)

SG will be fine - positivity plays a big part in these things.

Fingers crossed Ric - come back on and tell us you are back at home.

Track Wednesday today, and in the spirit of going round in circles, I did 12.5 laps. I was going to do 10, but decided to make it a round 5000m. Difficult enough keeping count just on that! I had in mind 85s laps, but it was pretty windy, legs are still a bit tired and, on reflection that would have been highly ambitious anyway, so in the end settled for whatever it came out as - 10x 88 and 2 x 89 if I remember right, so about 18:20 for the full 5000m. Happy enough with that at the mo, but struggling to imagine doing 25 laps 2s per lap faster....

Main thing missing was the oxygen mask the medics give me after marathons Iron I was working on the basis that shedding altitude would have the same net effect!!

Mmm, burgers....

They have floodlights at SM Philip (and are even allowed to use them!)....

Steeplechase might be a good idea to get onto a UK ranking for V45 (though never having done one, I suspect I may just end up face first in the water pit each lap!)

Phnarr, phnarr!

Oh - mine was too, Dachs believe me!

Come and do the Stoke Mandeville 10,000 - it's a nice track, despite being in Aylesbury!

Do it SG - probably an off-day anyway, but even under par, you'll do better than many of your team mates!

Back at work today after 2 and a half weeks - boo hoo! Grey drizzle suits my mood! Run in reflected the last couple of weeks efforts and my legs felt very heavy, with a bit of a twinge in the old adductor area I'll need to keep a watch on.

I'm not convinced about this stretching lark - legs were fine last two weeks having done not one bit, bit did a foam roll and stretch session last night and legs are tired!

Downward dog is good for calf muscles I find (my Mrs used to do yoga and showed me!). I can just about get my palms on the floor when standing straight legged, which is good for the hamstrings, but I do have the advantage of having stumpy little legs

Ah, thanks Lit 

As for the 10,000, I've never done any sort of track race, but now you mention it, 25 laps seems a lot! It's all ages though SG, not just vets...

Matt - that mileage is damn impressive, but not surprising looking at the mammoth sessions on Strava! My mileage for August is down a bit, but not surprisingly, given the trip to the Alps, the ascent is a fair bit - 202M and 32,000 ft. The downside of all that climbing is it's dragged the pace down to not much less than 10 min miling!
