i think stories like the the chap who did high mileage and then did a 2.30 marathon are outliers.  He was probably a 2.30 marathoner anyway and just did the training.  IMO most people trying to run 18m+ a day over a long period would break.  and spend large parts injured.  Or they run them that slow that they would probably benefit from a smarter training routine with faster miles.

Took me a while to work out how to do 1000m on the track

reminds me of a chap who had to ask how many laps needed for 800m

most tracks do have a 300m line as well.  look at the 100m start and on the bend will be a staggered line used for relay.

yep...just thinking the same Lit.  nobody starts a 300m off the 400m start line.  always finish there.  start at the 1500m start.

a bit random Ric...throwing in your mates ripped arse..i guess where the thread goes is where the thread goes 

Bus i had to do my 12m LSR on my mine was hardly inspiring too.  though a couple of episodes of prison break s2 help keep my idle mind entertained.

yesterday was the midlands 6 stage road relays.  we were missing our best runner (GB level) and another chap who could probabaly smash out a sub 15 5k too.  but after leg 1 we  were in 2nd, after leg 2 we were in first.  then the 2 weeker chaps up next and we dropped to 10th.  gutted as i was our 5th runner i was hoping to be chasing down for medals.  anyway set off like a man possessed and got us into 9th before the hill.  couldnt see anyone else so thought that was it.  worked hard up the hill and by the top i was feeling leggy after the higher mileage ive been on.  pushed along the top and then spotted some vests.  didnt know if i was lapping someone or moving up a place but chased anyway.  Balls! im lapping them.  then i spot more vests in the distance and im motoring now.  Balls! more lapped runners.  overtake them then spot a familiar vest i know is ahead and i must have made a minute up on them.  i drive hard and overtake, we are into 8th.  more vests ..and more lapped runners but i focus on whoever is ahead rather than who is on my shoulder.  then overtake another to get us into 7th.  i feel like i have the entire race sitting off my shoulder using me and im collecting runners like my kid collects pokemon go.  into the last half mile and i concentrate on the finish as anyone on my shoulder that hasnt been able to push past me by now is going to struggle to take me in a sprint finish.  but some clown tried.  pushes past on my inside so i accelerate earlier than i planned. i take off.  dropping them all with a very hard fast finish.  finish in 19.03 sub 5.20 pace on a hilly very windy course.  only 1 vet (i think) beat that time and that was tim hartley who im sure simon would vouch for being a bit of legend.  so im proper happy with that.  i never run well on this course so happy to find a dash of form.  we finished 7th overall and onto the nationals in a fortnight where im sure a few of you chaps would have qualified too

Ric.  Wasps and horsefly bites don't hurt you....I'm kinda thinking you might be chuck Norris.

Pete. i was stung last saturday on a run.  was reliably told it was probably a horsefly and i could expect massive swelling and itchy.    i got lucky as it didnt swell but was v itchy.  hurt like hell at the time.....Felt like a snake hawk pitbull bite type pain, and i went down like i had been hit by sniper fire in platoon.

I have been lucky that i have always had very good coaches. i put 100% faith into them and do as im told.  Its worked out reasonable well so far.  no chance i would have developed this far without a 3rd party to watch and create a tailored plan for me.  

Bus - good debut on the mile.  hard distance to race and get right.   looks like you had a good one.

Reg - that session sounds odd for a middle distance runner let alone someone who is a 5k and above.  A session like that must have been for form and improving running economy rather than any training benefit.  though i very tidy 400 rep.

another view of the brownlee brothers was Jonny was dangerously dehydrated and was pulled away from the waterstation where he had stopped

sounds like you have the advantage simon,  i joined a club in 2011, you have 11 years on me ...what have you been doing mate   strong session last night as always (you seem to smash out 1k reps with ease).  i did 8*800 with longer recovery and wasnt as quick as yours.
