Decent but soggy run tonight. 13 with 10 at hmp plus 20 seconds. Came out 7.03 for 158bpm. Did identical run 4/5 weeks ago for 7.07 and 161 BPM.

Counting down the runs now. So ready to race and so paranoid about getting injured just before I get my day!!

Overdone it?

Well done, Charlie. By the sounds of things that time on that course will translate nicely toward pb pace for Worcester.

Well done also to, Skinny. A solid sustained block of training should see you back to pb shape.

Not actually drunk the champers as we were out with friends last night. Likely to be enjoyed tomorrow.

The only downside with the pb is that all my training paces are based on 19.40 5k. I am going to have need to recalculate them. Though with only 5 weeks left, 2 of which are taper, I wonder if its really necessary.

Great work, Bob. Love the triumphant pose!!

Lou, I've picked one up off a women in work. Well it was her husbands. Anyway she asked for ??30 and it seemed a reasonable amount to try one out this winter. I currently have no idea how it sets up but no doubt there'll be something on you tube.

Belated good luck to skinny, Charlie and muddy today.

There was some very mild roaring yesterday with about 600 to go but nothing significant, which leaves me thinking I could have gone faster.

Good work, Dr Dan. Good start to work from.

Good stuff also for Andrew. Just as well enjoy the pb safe in the knowledge its fair game to chip away at.

Talking of which.....19.17 yesterday for a 6 second pb. Just 108 weeks in the making!! Oddly I think if I could have another go I'd chip a bit more off it as the effort felt less than the previous.

For now I'll just bank that and get back on plan. Worcester 10k three weeks today and five weeks to Cardiff half.

Crikey, The Dan, is that a honeymoon baby?! Congrats!! It shouldn't change a great deal, you just need to get smarter about when you train.

Anyway......Bob was almost spot on. Watch is 19.16 dead. Oddly it didn't feel that horrendous. Could probably eek a bit more out. Anyway, let's hope the champagne hasn't gone off.

Good luck on Sunday, Skinny.

I am having another crack at Parkrun with better weather and more rested legs. Hopefully that will be all I need to squeeze out a few more seconds.

I think I read that advice in a  mcmillan running article. Not sure all the experts say it though.

Conditions are looking far more sensible for tomorrow am. Did 5 at hmp on tuesday night and just some spin/cycle since with a rest day today so i've given myself the best chance of cracking it.

Last parkrun opportunity quite possibly this year, dependant on xc and other races I have my eye on.

Charlie, looks like we have a fairly similar agenda over the next 6-8 weeks. I was reading an article recently that said something along the lines of after your target race/s take a few weeks where you don't worry about running and do a bit of what you fancy. For me, at this stage of the schedule I've stepped away from anything but running and cycling. I'd like a few weeks where I can do some circuits and other such classes without care.

 win at any cost, deal with the consequences afterwards!!

Well done on hat sounds like an interim 10k pb, Mace.

Yes, it's very similar. Only native American tribesmen are allowed inside teepee's, whilst anyone can access a tippee.

I did think it was a slightly unfortunate last comment from Tommy as well.
