That's a shame Jooligan. Viruses are evil, as many of us know all too well. Just know that the training was not in vain and will stand you in good stead for the next campaign.

Windy out today isn't it?! 18 miles brings up my first 70 mile week of the year (and last I would imagine). What a battle the last few miles were with leaves blowing straight into my face. I think it traumatised me somewhat. 

Any particular reason for the cycling Poacher?

XC relays for me today. I'm so far from fit it's embarrassing! I can only dream of a sub 19 5k at this point in time. 

Anyone doing Abo tomorrow? (Not me!)

Beer flavoured gel? 

I don't see the appeal of the Brass Monkey. It's way too early in the build up to be of any meaningful guide to marathon pace and no chance of a PB either. 

Midlands XC relays today. Bit of a trek down to Wolverhampton! We had a rubbish team given the quality of girls who run for us. You know it's bad when I'm on the senior A team, and I wasn't even the slowest. Our first leg runner is pretty decent though, and she came home in second place. No pressure then! I was quickly passed by a Nuneaton girl and was hanging on to third place until near the end of the second lap when a Tipton girl came past at great speed (I think she actually ran the leg 2 minutes faster than I did so there was no keeping up with her) so handed over to our slowest runner in 4th. She was overhauled by another two so we ended up 6th, which is decent considering I should have been on the vets team and Tasha would normally be B or C team.

Looking forward to some Abo reports as post long run reading tomorrow night

I train very slowly compared to PMJ and G-Dawg. LSR is 60 to 90 seconds slower than MP, MP runs obviously at MP, intervals faster and everything else about 2 mins slower. 

Dogs are hazards! Nearly tripped over an errant pug this evening. Doubt I'd have noticed if it had bitten me with its tiny mouth, but if I'd gone face first over it...

It's been a busy weekend for big races hasn't it. I caught some of the Birmingham half on TV this morning (I was waiting for the torrential rain to stop), had friends out in Amsterdam and of course Race Jase was over in Toronto. Just a slow 18 miler for me though. Well, slow compared to what I used to be able to do in marathon training, but faster than I've run a long run for months. 8.03 average.

Not deliberately 'ticking over', more like repeatedly trying to get some mileage in but being scuppered by either illness, life events or, the best one, a broken toe!

18 miles today. I had myself a nice long lie in because the forecast was heavy rain all morning and dry all afternoon. I woke up, heard the rain and snuggled back under the duvet for a couple of hours. Bliss. I hadn't noticed though, until I started to run, that my legs were absolutely trashed from racing yesterday. Not exactly the most enjoyable run ever! Gives me 68.5 miles for the week. You may or may not remember, but I'm a big mileage girl and that's still pretty low by my standards, but is probably my highest mileage week for the whole year .

Have you lot lost the plot in the last few months????

XC for me today. Barely managed MP but it was all out effort. At least it was until I rolled my ankle on a molehill on the final descent. No damage done but it lost me a few vital seconds on the girls I was chasing. It's a long road back!

I did the Town Moor marathon once. I have no plans to do it again! 

XC today. I got really boxed in at the start but at least that meant I was overtaking the whole way and never got passed. Slower than last year though, and I wasn't fit this time last year either.

*Pokes head back in* 

Hi folks. Everyone still here? Still going strong I hope? I can't read back the months and months I've been gone for, it would take nearly as long to read it all!  

I'm going to try to keep up again, now that things are bit more settled for me.
