BBB the only way I can run 5k pace in 400m reps is to do lots (and thus defeat the object of taper sessions). Good running though. Fluking the pace on three reps is good - shows it is about right pace wise. Enjoy the parkrun.

We're hoping to stop in on Haywards Heath parkrun on the way to Eastbourne tomorrow morning so Magpie can get a second speed session and I can get a little jog after todays! 7m @ 7:13 in windy conditions is not bad at all I think.

DT19 I don't fit into Aldi kit. Booo to them. I do have the cycling top and jacket though where I can put up with it being bigger. Very useful stuff, enjoy.

Hey Duck glad to see your training is going well. What's your next race?

Torches - cant be without mine as we train a lot in Richmond Park.Off out for my session in a mo. I have a petzl which was uber cheap but very bright.

Good running Alehouse. Hope no problems this morning.

Phil nice session!

Rip-off races vs great value diamonds

The self transcendence races in Battersea Park are great value and offer EOD which I love.

Royal Parks is far too expensive.

Gosport is good value for money, Bristol Half is quite pricey but well run so I'll pay that.

I like the idea of not paying for medal and goody bag. I don't give a stuff about those so that would be good.

Oh Alehouse Dulwich is quicker than Pymmes for me (I've done all three including Brockwell). Brockwell gets fast times as the elites go there sometimes, think some of them live in Brixton while in the UK.

Pymmes is more twisty Imo. Dulwich is like a race track all gentle curves.

Morning all!

Sorry to hear of Dash's woes with pf. I have occasional grumpy feet these days which is mainly rectified by yoga stretching. Nothing major though, but am keeping an eye on my creaks for precisely what has happened to you. Hope the cycling is enjoyable.

Andrew and the pace discussion, I have just changed mine and its been a tough adjustment to get used to so I've been more relaxed than usual. Last night's medium long of 12 was 9:08 mins/mile. In theory that's recovery pace these days, but I'm happy with it.

Good luck on Sunday PRF, enjoy the Guinness!

Phil and Duck some cracking sessions there.

Good week from me so far, 6 on Mon with an session on strength and conditioning run by our track club, road club session on Tues (4*7 mins with 90secs recovery run progressively) and 12 last night. Rest today then session with 7 miles at mp tomorrow.

Also I won member of the month on the other running forum, so got some compression gear for nothing. Well actually I got some for Magpie as they don't go down to my size, but its all good

Also ran but no posh bogs in GFA (unless you are fGFA) as I was reminded by Jools when she paced me for my champs place with the mantra:
Think of the posh bogs

Thus you should be asking for ??200

Agree with Phil. Which is why I wont be doing a 20 as I would end up racing it! 10 is perfect for me, it tells me what I need to know re: what my mp is and 4 weeks out is loads of time to recover from it too.

Cant believe you wont be doing VLM Phil. If you don't go away you darn well better be in the pub
