So poachers shoot and kill 5 elephants in Kenya and make off with the tusks.
Will this attract the same sort of anger and press coverage as it wasn't done by a rich, American dentist?
(though to clarify, both are despicable)

Oh and I don't really care about an apprentice 'star', sad yes, newsworthy, no.

Sounds like some decent holiday mileage Don
Wabo - take it easy you don't want to provoke injury
what - easy 5 at lunchtime
why - the sun is out, and did 5x1k last night with 400 recoveries. First a bit too swift (4.04) but the others were all around 4.15, definitely felt hard, due no doubt to a bit of extra 'post holiday' timber. Finished with 3x150m sprints (thanks coach). Easy c/d
last rest - Monday
last hard - yesterday
lyric - not sure

Sun trying to show it's face in old London town, but hardly warm ...
what - club night
why - back in the routine
last rest - yesterday in the end. All day catching up at work, club committee meeting in teh evening
last hard - will be today

I've found consistent mileage is the key (with ease back weeks). Nigh on impossible for me to do any more than 60 a week with the bulk at w/ends. Realistically 10-12 is the absolute max midweek even that is often in 2 sessions. Might change when the kids leave home and I retire!

afternoon everyone, remember me?
Two splendidly warm weeks in the Canaries. Strong winds (as usual) but over 30c every day. 
Managed to run every day (apart from the two travel days), nothing exciting but 4-8 miles a day mainly on volcano/scree/dusty tracks.
Yesterday managed 11 miles back home in torrential downpour, today 14 miles in stunning sunshine. 
Will have a read back to see what's been going on...

The Ashes

I'm hoping for 25 days of rain spread out over the summer.
Mind you if you take cricket away from the south east you're asking for trouble with the weather. Cardiff, that hot bed of cricket...
