Have a great time at the training day, soups glad you made it back home in one piece. Your return journey sounded quite stressful....

Sorry I went AWoL for a bit - I was sulking in the corner with a hamstring strain :-/.on the mend now. Managed 6 miles yesterday and again today almost pain free.

Missed Angela's stellar performance at Tarpley. Wow. A fine example of truly impressive pacing

And congrats to slowkoala (you need to change your forum name!!) and BRB for bagging a nice set of PB s

Looking forward to reading all about today's training with the pros.

Welcome back, tiny seems like those runners legs are back.

Wow, wotta stunning holiday. I'm glad to hear you made the most of it. This is not the place or time to make sacrifices and deny yourself things

I was sulking all of last week with a hamstring strain. Got it out of nowhere in the middle of a 10 miler. RICE and ibuprofen seem to have helped though. I managed 6 nearly pain free miles wearing a compression sleeve today. It was pouring rain but I didn' Was just so glad to run again!!

Brixton: I think you're on the wrong thread you should look for sub 3 judging by those paces . Awesome. I remember managing ONE 2:58 800m rep once many years ago.... but I nearly threw up at the end!! Mine usually come in at 3:15 ish.... and that's on a good day

Hi guys, I'm de-sulking

Was grounded with a hamstring strain for a week but managed an almost pain free 6 miler today

Fingers crossed.

Have a great weekend all.

My dad is 80 today, so off for a big celebration later

Sorry to hear about the lurgy, AA and Freemers. It's the time of year

Great 20 miler, Freemers

Take your time with recovery, AA. Those viruses are nasty and have to be taken seriously.

Doesn't sound much of a holiday, O4S. Well done on another excellent age graded result . Sounds very cold for Lanza!! I guess we were lucky in January. It's always really windy there but at least we could use the pool and brave the sea.

I was sulking quietly in the corner... my calf pain of Thursday last week turned into a hamstring strain at the weekend I did zero running until today, RICEd it and used anti inflams for 5 days (thanks Dr. Google). Today I managed 6 miles on grass ok. I'm wearing one of these compression sleeves around my thigh and that seems to do the trick. Fingers crossed its healing ok.

aww, she's gorgeous, wabo! You wouldn't know what a tough start to life she had ...

garage: 2 cars, 4 bikes, workbench, garden furniture, patio heater, 2 sets of summer tyres, a shelf and a cupboard. You can tell it's a big garage  but not big enough to accommodate a dreadmill. Or bike rack.

Hope you can shake the lurgy, Dustin.

Nice progress, Ruffles . Yikes, a sub  6mile . Your club mate must be seriously speedy...

Soups: that's awesome news on the running front. So glad things are progressing for you. Take it easy on the return journey. Hope the snow is not too bad.

Hello need for speed. A 1:40 half should get you a sub 3:45 full - are you male or female though? General consensus is that girls convert their HM time better into a fast-ish marathon than boys. The key is a consistent training campaign with plenty of sustainable mileage. I. e. get at least 5*20 under your belt and try to stick in a mid-week medium long run (10-15 miles) if your body copes. As we get older *sigh* it gets tougher to combine speedwork and mileage without our bodies breaking down. I'm 46 now and while I can handle high mileage pretty well the addition of speedwork usually sets off an injury
