Nicely done LMH.  Great time and well done on being 1st lady. 

10 miles for me today, 75 mins, felt easy.  Just had a couple of runs this week.  Jetting off to Toronto tomorrow, race is one week today.  V. Excited!

Popped out for 7.2 miles early this morning.  Enjoyed it.

Hope the racers go well today.

Lyrics, I don't think so!

15 miles today in a too-fast time of 1:53, but felt fine throughout.  Beautiful morning out there, what a week of glorious weather it has been.  Late summer for Scotland.  

Lyrics, nope.

All the best tomorrow poppy and anyone else racing.

Club session tonight.  Just a relay across the fields, went well after the pain went away!

lmh, correct, no chance of me resting.  Stupid though it might be, I will run until I can't, if that makes any sense.

lyrics - yes!!

Didnt train on Monday and then went to the club last night.  Knee was really sore for the first 3 reps of 16 x 1 min on, 1 min off, but then it eased and it felt good.  Spoke to one of the coaches who said that confirms it as tendonitis and he warned me that next week, it would be sore for 4 reps, then 5 reps, then constantly.  Not news I was wanting but there you go!

I loved reading the reports from the weekend, they were awesome and inspiring.  Keep it up, everyone.

No training tonight but back to the club tomorrow to see if Coach Milne's prophecy comes true.

Have applied to join the committee as Vets coordinator - hoping to start giving something back.

chicksta, hope you enjoyed your drinkies even if it did cause you grief this morning,

Well done on 300th parkrun, RFJ, that's brilliant.

Blisters, not going for sub 3 this time around.  Did a half last week and only got 1:31 so no real chance there.  I'm going to go out there and enjoy it, running about 3:15 I hope.  PB is 10 years old and 2:57.  I should probably think about forgetting that PB it was so long ago!!

20 miles done in 2:40.  Relatively pain free and upped the pace for last 3 miles.  Gives me that final bit of confidence that I needed to say Toronto is definitely on!   I know that injuries can't be that bad if I can still manage a 20.

Will properly taper now and probably just run every second day. 

Lyrics, nope.

Going long today, hopefully!  22 days to go so will do my last long run.  Kind of been tapering for the last month right enough with all my left leg issues.  Summary: plantar pretty bad, that's a year now.  Knee pretty bad, that's just 2 and a half weeks and now to add insult to injury, I have weird pain on the top of my left foot as well that feels like it tightens when I stretch my toes forward.  What a wreck!!!  But not throwing in the towel yet.  Will report back later!

Good luck to everyone racing today, hope it goes well,.

6.5 miles easy tonight, nice recovery run.

LMH, checked out the knee mice thing and I don't think it's that, but it was fun reading about it!  I love learning new things about the body

well raced to all yesterday.

lyrics, nope!
