Stewart I got Kaspersky and as my broadband is so slow it took hours to update. 

Colin good news on the hip, not long now!

Stuart you can't be racing weight all year round.  It will make running feel much easier once the weight falls off! 

Nice running Teknik! I had a real issue with the HRM last night so must change the battery and see if that works.

Nothing for me tonight as didn't escape work til 8pm and just too tired. Happy enough to miss a night as just relaxed training at the moment.

Must have been all those cakes we ate, NP!!

MG1 well done on the morning run.

Stewart is your appt with the physio or Lisa? Hope the no run days help.

The anti virus software arrived today so hope to get back on the home laptop and update Fetch at last!!

OH maybe if you enter the 5k it will encourage others to enter who could be intimidated by the fast times?

Stewart I hope the weather warms up again too. Very overcast all day today but not bad for running in tonight.

AGF good luck with the ballot, I wish the results were out sooner!

Mace no niggles at the moment thanks (touches wood!)

Kaz well done on the 11, the legs must be feeling the mileage. Which ultra are you doing?

Maths chick hope you feel better soon.

Matsmum morning runs always feel tough to me! Any time after 7am is ok but before then is tough!

Teknik nice trail running.

BD2 sounds like you are good to go! The taper will be a good rest.

HM4 you're on a roll! Keep going with these runs and you'll have a great race!

NN that sounds tough! You are great at getting the cross training in. I am so lazy at going to classes now and am not motivated enough to do these things at home. Must try to do weights at the weekend.

7.7 miles for me tonight, great to be out. HRM decided not to work and I ended up av pace 7:32mm, would have been slower if I'd seen the HR but really enjoyed it, must dig out a new battery.

kaz mine in a Tacx Cirius (I think) and it was one of the cheapest when I bought it but does the job just fine.

I used to love warm water diving but have not done it for years. Can't ever see the drysuit getting used - bought an expensive crushed neoprene one then never ventured into cold water again!!

Colin have you tried sitting with the sore leg over the other leg - outside ankle resting on your knee then press the knee of the sore leg down to stretch out the hip. The one exercise that worked for me but of course may be a completely different injury!!

On the contrary, both feet off the ground is always a good look!!

Chocolates are a pretty good way to celebrate OH! Jenny is lovely and did a huge amount of fundraising for the charity that we ran London for. Also a quality runner!

Nice days training AGF. Great to make the most of your day off.

HM4 great that you for out, nothing like a plan!

Managed a turbo session. Short intervals, 3 mins with 2 min recoveries * 6, 18.7m in total.

MG1 and Teknik sounds like you are getting some nice weather, Teknik it's a positive that the foot is ok when running but not so good that it hurts when you stop but makes a change from the other way around! Hope the ice works.

OH well done on the PB!!  One of the Inverness girls was heading up for that one, I think she did a 36:xx run.

kaz well done to junior!!

NN I'm working too.  

Stuart that reminds me I must get back to weights and other cross training, I did a few pathetic planks whilst watching tv on Saturday night! Made sure I didn't spill the prosecco!

NP sounds like a great trip. Hope the diving is good, It will be interesting to hear about it. I'm thinking about 40-50 mile weeks for the next while with some cycling or turbo work thrown in.

Mathschick I hope the cold passes quickly.

Teknik, nice run this morning, hopefully the foot will not worsen.

A stunning day here. A nice 11.2 run up the great glen way and back by the canal. Felt as if I could have done another 15 so legs must be recovered.

Enjoy the sightseeing by air today NP!

HM and CM sounds like you'll both be running at your own paces now which for me is the only way! At least you can still talk running and compare training plans

That's some mileage kaz, well done.
