Alehouse - we finish next Weds for a week and a half, but there's so much planned for half term! I'm away this weekend with some 6th form doing a walking leaders' course. Things should settle down a bit after half term!

That's some impressive consistency there. Another 50 years of running daily and you'll be up there with Mr Hill!

Good news on the recovery front DT

I did have a 10k planned but binned it off because my form was so bad. Mission before Christmas is to build up some consistent mileage and get down to the weight I was in June.

Well done Mr V, and congrats PRF, outstanding result.

Still not feeling the love. Energy levels all over the place. I'm trying to get out 3-4 times a week and hoping that when it all slots into place again I'll have a base to build from.

Thought I'd bump as we were in danger of dropping off the bottom of the page! Nothing to report. A minor virus knocked me out at the end of last week. 3 gentle miles today. Still not feeling the love, but will stick with it! I've decided to build up some base and a bit of cross training, with (maybe) a parkrun at tempo and a few strides being the only faster stuff for a while.

Sorry to hear about your club mate Duck.

Not much to report on here. I took a week out of running completely and am now building up again sensibly to avoid the fatigue I was suffering before. It seems to be working, on Saturday I ran Delamere parkrun 30s faster than a few weeks ago at a much easier effort! I still haven't been motivated to sort out my diet properly, but I'm hoping it will come.

Nice training advice Alehouse. I've always thought the ethos of the thread was "Lots of miles, some of them fast"

Gentle club run planned for tonight, then I'll try to get in some form of tempo intervals tomorrow morning before a field trip to Malham.

Nice long run Dr Dan. It's looking good for the big day.

Sorry DT. Hope the physio gave a positive diagnosis.

Swim and Boxercise yesterday. Will try to get out for a gentle 4 miler later and some fartlek tomorrow.

No - I have Wednesday afternoons free but have to hang around to do after school clubs so got in the run then. Hopefully this can continue!

Seems like things are going in the right directin WJH

Tempo intervals yesterday. Still ridiculously slow but slightly faster than last week, and I made it round Tuesday's club run and home without dying massively - baby steps!

Advice about pace please?

Do a race then use a running pace calculator to work out your training paces.
