Ah, that explains your absence from the Midlands League then Jools. I did think it odd that you weren't at your home fixture.

MsE, you can lead the annoying warm up at the start of races! 

21.5 miles for me today, which was half a mile longer than intended as I needed to divert to a shop to buy more water. 70.5 for the week and a cutback week beckons already. 

I maligned the Gloucester runner, it wasn't her, but the BRAT B string who was cutting the distance. The Bristol girl was worse though, I followed her for two laps and she spent more time running inside the line than in the lane. I don't know why it bothers me so much, since I beat them both anyway, and ran the full distance!

A PB is a PB ES, and with a dodgy build up you really should be happier about it!

21.5 miles for me today bring up 70.5 for the week. The extra 0.5 was a diversion to buy water today as it was a tad warm.

Goodness me, there's been some hard work and mammoth runs going on here! Rather easier for me, a 3000m race in Bristol. Season's best of 10.52.1. I really, really need to lose some timber and by the time the UKWAL comes around in August I could do some damage to my two-year-old PB.

Blimey Sloakey, I'm speechless. 

If race reports are in direct proportion to the length of the race I'd better keep mine brief! 3000m, Midlands League, Bristol. Bloody long way to go to run for 10 mins 52.1 seconds. Was annoyed by B runners from Bristol and Gloucester who were blatantly running over the inside line, especially the Bristol girl. That's just plain cheating in my book. But I beat them both and since I was A string they weren't technically in my race. Season's best for 4th A string. No sign of Jools today though. I imagine all clubs had the same issue today, but all of our best athletes were at the British Champs so we had 16 gaps in our team sheet.

Hang in there Poacher, it sounds like the arthroscopy could be a good thing.

SW78 - running on the flat works your muscles differently to running on hills. Relentlessly flat courses like London are hard on the legs because the muscles never get a rest. If your marathon is flat do some flat runs if you can. 

65 miles for the week including 20 miles today. I'm sooo tired now though.

I looked at doing that Clumber HM but it was pricey and I'd already offered to pace a friend round parkrun yesterday (he took a whole minute of his PB, that I'd also paced him to). 

20 miles for me today and a 65 mile week. It's starting to feel like training rather than messing about now.

Sounds promising bains! Bains the younger is a bit speedy isn't he? 

Track tonight and there were no other distance runners of my speed so I did a session for 1500m runners instead. 4 x 400m, 4 x 300m, 4 x 200m. Ouch.

Slokey - wow! 

Badbark - run it drunk, g'wan, you know you want to!

Track for me and there were no distance folk of the appropriate speed so I ended up doing the short session. 4 x 400m, 4 x 300m, 4 x 200m. I am no sprinter!

Much like Jools my week hasn't been ideally structured but 60.5 is my biggest week since February and just the start of things to come. Proper mileage will be acheived in a month or so. 

I'm pleased to see I'm not the only one over-racing JAP I wish I could get close to your times though. You guys make me feel so slow.
