Welcome MR
"Only" 10 LmH
Short stuff (track) training over the summer - club's mile race in September - then local half in October and then the XC season
what - snowed under so easy few miles tonight
what - fitting it in
last rest - yesterday was less than a couple of ks with the kids, we did long jumping instead
last hard - Tuesday
Off to Cornwall for a week so not sure I'll get on here much but hope to take in some coastal walks (subject to two teenage daughters). I did find a run route that start from where we're staying, goes up to the North Coast (near Hayle), drop down to South Coast (St Michaels Mount) and back to the house. 26.2 miles.I think they call that fate...

You were up early Ollie
No idea on those old lyrics either!
what - easy running with the little people
why - Thursday
last rest - Sunday
last hard - Tuesday

Yesterday was just over 5 steady at lunchtime before the sun came out in force, evening was 2 miles with the C25Kers at an easier pace

Didn't make training yesterday - instead sat on a train at Waterloo for 70 minutes (with no aircon) before it eventually rumbled into life. Home 2 hours late, so straight out for 4x1m with 400 recoveries. Sweltering. Car thermo said 34 but not sure it was as hot as that.
Today - just off out at lunchtime for easy miles, C25K tonight
why - routine
last rest - Sunday
last hard - sleeping in a pool of sweat last night

Are you and "in" or an "out"?

As NE alludes to , it's probably worth considering shipping costs as well as outright costs in comparing trading partners.

OK so the nuclear option. Why don't we just tell everyone we have loads of nuclear warheads on board submarines globally when really all they are are marine research vessels. I mean if a lunatic Iraqi leader can convince a well educated British head of Government that they could launch an attack before I've finished my 5km, we, as an (arguably) intelligent state should be able to deceive/convince the rest of the world?

LmH - Looked at the ultra you're doing, I can't believe you turned down the "piece of cake" run at the weekend, can't believe I didn't find out about it...

What - club night
why - routine
last rest - Sunday
last hard - ages ago.
Lovely lunchtime run yesterday - 6 miles not a breath of wind anywhere. Further 2miles with the C25Kers in the evening (mostly running, some walking)

Planning a race/fun run

Posted: 18/07/2016 at 10:40

Avoid main roads.
Police closures or properly marshalled crossings are expensive.
If it's a fun run, what's wrong with trail (using footpaths/parks)?

Multi loops via a common point sometimes good for hydration but LmH is correct regarding spring/autumn marathons.
Training over winter rarely requires carrying drinks (well not for me anyway) but in summer it's definitely advisable once you get over the hour mark.

what - easy lunchtime summer smiles, C25K tonight
why - feeling almost human again
last rest - yesterday
last hard - running - weeks ago, life - yesterday

evening all
Decent training from all quarters..lovely day for it too
what - nothing
why - just got in from a day on the isle of wight (left the house at 6:20 am) for the final junior athletics match. 100 athletes and some parents/officials on 2 coaches via the ferry at Portsmouth. It was a glorious sunny day, so plenty of pink faces.
Our club won (subject to confirmation) so we should win the league outright. 
last rest - didn't run today, but hardly a restful day
last hard - today tbh

Morning All
Dibs - agree with Ale
Ollie - I would focus on the end goal as the target race in that case. If your schedule has you running a MLR with strides then the 5k is just an additional run in the schedule. Ergo the time is irrelevant, although a fast one is a bonus!
We have plenty of athletes at our club who - in my view - over race: There is often disappointment because you can't run a park run pb, a fast 10k and a half marathon best as well as training for a marathon. You can't be all things to all distances at the same time.

what - thought about run to PR, run 5k, run home but that would be 13 miles. Given I'm still coughing up stuff and feel tired I'll go off road for an easy hour.
why - like LmH, deciding what to do next
last rest - not run much this week
last hard - getting round 6 miles yesterday

A bit grey here but very mild, due to be mid 20s later!!
