Need to do a proper read-back really, but bloody hell Dr D!  If I had run a mid 33 10K in training feeling comfortable, I'd be expecting to break 70 in a half.  Get a half in, quickly!

I've got the Nike Zoom spikes, ordered them blind off the net, but they do the job very nicely.

Fast reps Scott, it's all coming back!

Solid running in the XC Simon.

Nice threshold stuff CC82 and Rob.  Rob, it's very impressive, but what's with all the threshold runs at the moment?

Mile reps was on the agenda last night, but I was shattered so I didn't bother.  Managed a 10 this morning, stuck a couple of fast miles in there (5:15, 5:10), but didn't do any more as I've got a big session tomorrow I didn't want to wreck.  Then did 5K in the afternoon with my 8-year old after school.  He did really well considering he'd never run more than 2 before.

Good run Ric.  I always wonder if there is such a thing as "easy XC" though - I find that even when I'm on a slow old warm up for an XC session, it's quite tough going on that kind of ground.  Depends on the course I suppose.

Andrew - good to see you back running.  No, I'm afraid that whilst the new car is a splendid red, it is most definitely not a sports car, rare or otherwise.

Well done Scott, great to see you back and posting a time.  Hopefully you'll re-gather strength quickly and will be back to racing.

Mind-blowing tempos Dean and Rob.  Dean, you always said you had a problem doing sub-6 tempo runs - looks like you've put that to bed!  Rob, that's two huge tempos in a week.  Preserve this good shape and take it to a race.

Iron Cat, who was the ginger fellow in the park then?  I know one ginger chap who lurks around that park a lot, but he is a fox, and he comes around our way mainly to rip open binbags rather than watch his young ones race. 

16m yesterday in 1:52 (slow start but averaged about 6:10 for the last 10K) brought up 83 for the week.  A few more big mileage weeks should hopefully set me up for the rest of the year.

8 running injuries no one talks about.

That's more amusing than anything I've ever read in RW UK, apart from the advert featuring PhilPub.

Rob, fantastic session.  Get in a race as soon as you can.

Nice repping/puking Bus.  Do you need to wear a bib when you run?

Handy 200s Dean.  What do you reckon you could pull off for a flat out 200?

Scott, I guess the point at the moment is just to get your body used to running faster, and enjoying it.  With that in mind I say 800s (don't see the point in sticking a mile rep in there if you're already doing the odd mile rep session).  As others have said, you're not trying to be in full-on race fitness at the moment, so don't worry about the recovery.  I say 2 mins and increase it if you need.  Most important is that you enjoy it.

Fairly light hill rep session for me last night.  I had considered parkrunning tomorrow, but I need to go and pick up our brand new car instead.  It will be red, which we all know is the fastest colour.

And I assume that a third simple step is to go round to that address, root through his bins, and find out all about his diet, medications, broadband supplier and favourite toothpaste.

Matt, you must've gone through 5m in about 26:05 at worst at Leeds.  I did, and you were just ahead of me.

Dr D - that's excellent that you're already on the radar than.  I say do it.  Most people don't seem to have too much difficulty adapting to XC, it often just seems to be me.  I'm sure you'll do well.
