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.

Brilliantly run considering Mr V. Get some rest now!

DT - I have no idea what the cause is. Probably some very stop start training for 7 weeks over the summer holidays then throwing myself back into it with gusto on Monday! A few consistent weeks should fix it...

Little Miss CB was amazing in a hilly 1k race today. She slowed to a walk twice on hills. I got her running on the first one by running slightly ahead and saying "Daddy's winning!" This spurred her nearly to the top of that section and the promise of e rest on the flat bit got her to the top. On the second I got her running again by saying that the Marshall would only give her a high 5 if she ran to him - it worked! She got a medal which she's been proudly showing off all day! Junior parkrun as soon as she's 4!

Fingers crossed for tomorrow Mr V.

I feel like I'm running through treacle at the moment. Delamere Parkrun this morning was a slog and I couldn't keep up any sort of pace. I keep telling myself it will get better in a couple of weeks!

Little Miss CB is doing her first race tomorrow at the tender age of 3 years 10 months. A 1k trail race at Delamere. Should be fun

Suddenly struggling...

If you think you can run 5k in 20 mins at an absoluts push, then 23 mins is not easy pace for 5k. Work on an absolute top pace of 5 min km for 80% of your mileage. Then when you want to put the effort in you'll be recovered properly and won't struggle so much.

WJH - Cheshire 10K at the beginning of November. I struggle once races are weekend only as my wife works Saturday and Sunday mornings so I get Little Miss CB. I get to Delamere parkrun as the in-laws live round the corner. In November we can start Junior parkrun on Sunday mornings!

Just read back. Well done TR.

Some great consistency there again Alehouse. It will get faster...

I hit the wall on last night's run. 8 miles into a planned 11 (run to club, club run and run home) I suddenly found that I couldn't 9 min mile to save my life and got dropped. I limped the last mile into club, ate loads of fig rolls and got a lift home. Rest day today!
