RFJ - hope its nothing sinister
Good pacing Ale

800 splits on the track / 400 recoveries were 
3.17 / 1.59 /3.17 / 2.00 / 3.17 /2.01 /3.16 / 2.01 / 3.13 / 2.02 / 3.12 / 2.02
400 splits / 400 recoveries
1.35 / 1.59 / 1.35 / 2.00 / 1.33 / 2.02 / 1.34 / 2.00
might not be super quick, but think I can do pacing!

well done PR people
what - 2m warmup to the track, 6x800s with 400 recoveries, 5x400s with 400 recoveries, 2m jog back. will post paces later but around 3:16s and 1:15s, not super speedy but hardly dawdling.
why - had 90 mins to kill while youngest was swimming
last rest - weeks
last hard - today
lyric - yep

Morning all,
Still have a record player somewhere, records all somewhere in the loft - although heaven knows what state they'll be in now.
Use an ipod now, but prefer CDs to downloads, although the wife makes me have an annual cull (i.e. move another 100 or so to the loft).
Hello Blisters!

what - something easy
why - worked longer than planned yesterday so didn't get home in time for my usual coaching stint. Made up for it by 5 tempo miles at 7:12 pace.
last rest - October
last hard - yesterday

Ale - on grass yesterday, our usual Tuesday sessions are normally on the fields adjacent to the track (or occasionally on the roads)

what - easy run at lunchtime, possible run tonight too as youngest swimming for an hour
why - I am athlete
last rest - last month
last hard - yesterday: 15 minutes tempo, managed 3.7k / 2.3mi then 5 minutes easy before another 12 minutes tempo - unintentionally slightly faster, running through treacle the last minute: 3k/1.9mi, 5 mins easy + warm up & cool down. Pleasewd to have hit those paces, just over 4m/ks.
lyric - think so

Good session OL
what - club night and we're doing this LT session:
15 min at 10m pace, 4min rec, 12 min at 10m pace
so for me should be sub7s, ideally closer to 6:45s
Why - following the marathon schedule, Portsmouth likely in December - Trail one in March the longer aim.
last rest - October
last hard - will be today
lyric - think so, yes.

london underground please, please , please get rid of the inane announcements:
"please hold the handrail"
"don't stand near the edge of the escalator"
"do not run on the escalator"
"if you have heavy bags, please use the lift"

Morning all
Bit fresh out there today. I think 'crisp' is the word commonly used.
WP - great restraint with the mince pies. I find you normally need to sample at least half a dozen for an adequate taste test....
What - Easy lunchtime miles
Why - fitting it in - club committee meeting tonight
last rest - couple of weeks
last hard - My legs are telling me yesterday was a slog
lyric - nope

Well done yesterday Don & R&S
Good news they have the culprits chicka
Lovely pics Don.
What - run this morning with 12 club mates. Car said it was zero degrees when I left the house at 7am, but tbh it felt warmer than yesterday (no wind). Around 11 miles all of it off road including one half mile stretch that was pure bog. Foot down and sink halfway up the shins! Loved it.
Why - too good an opportunity to turn down.
Last rest - 2 weeks or so
last hard - Wednesday
Actually managed to get the last grass cut of the year out the way this afternoon too, given it's been dry for 2 or 3 days. Oh and make some flapjacks!
