Indeed OH!    No matter if I run 70 miles a week or none I stay the same weight. Good luck with the race! 

Stewart well done on the swimming. Not looking forward to looking out the winter gear. 

Teknik yes that sounds like tiredness. I've been exhausted all week after my busy weekend and the HR has been higher than normal. Great run! 

Well done NN, great to get a 22 done and enjoy the weekend. 

NP good luck to Buddy tomorrow! Great that you can get your swimming stats too. 

Rest day for me.

MG1 that's good mileage you are putting in. Sounds like a rest day is needed.

Stewart that's a nice run up there, I've not been up that way all summer and looks like it won't happen until the dark nights when I absolutely have to head to town for the street lights.

Teknik well done on the muddy slog! 

jason a very impressive tempo run and well done for the blackberrying and filling the freezer, that'll be nice in winter! 

NN good luck with the 22! I hope you get a decent morning for it. 

HM4 shame about the heating, I hope it gets fixed before you need it.

Stuart get the 20's done and the weight will sort itself out!  Actually that's a terrible lie as the more I run the more I eat! It's just down to eating less which is a shame. 

That's another good day's training NP and coffee too! 

10 miles for me tonight with a few tempo intervals thrown in. Such a nice night.

MG1 same as you on the weight except it's 1kg to get to 50kg but lots of time to get there slowly!

Michael hope the cycle heled the legs.

A great result for your club NP. Well done on the fast miles without Buddy! 

Stewart good news on the calf.  No early run for me today but got out tonight just when it started to get chilly again but lovely despite that.

OH cut back on the palaver and just get someone to throw some water over you when you least expect it! 

Teknik well done on intervals when the legs are still aching - great willpower to get it done.

An easy 5.6m for me tonight.

Nice double jason, I hope you didn't get soaked again today! You must go through loads of kit if you end up doing doubles in the rain!! 

dsr well done on the 20 and also Dan on the kenyan hills - a good session! 

Stewart there are a few of those short tris around - good luck with that!! 

Teknik  can just imagine you walking like your legs were made of wood! Well done for getting a short run done, hope the second day isn't worse!

HM4 good that you enjoyed the film after the mammoth effort to get there! 

An easy 30 minutes for me early today then tonight a few 1k tempo efforts. Really breezy out there but lovely blue sky and went from long sleeve top and jacket this morning to shorts and t-shirt tonight.

Nice run yesterday NP, I hope you are getting the same weather as we are here. 

That was a fantastic run yesterday jason especially when not feeling 100%.

Nice run Stuart and good to get 2 of the tempo intervals done.

Fantastic news Stewart! 

Michael nice weekly total.

HM4 well done on the run, great that you arrived early not late!

MG1 amazing tempo run and great to see the training work! 

Welcome LR and Banksy.

OH well done on the 20, perfect weather for it! 

Teknik fantastic cross training - I can't imagine doing intervals after squats!!

At Knockhill all day yesterday to watch (& listen ) to the touring cars - amazing!! So took the morning off work to do the long run. 17.5 miles with some faster sections. A perfect morning and happy with the run.

Was that bad cramp Stewart? I've had that and it's horrid. It might be a lot better by morning! Don't despair, it will get better!!

Maybe I should have looked at the garmin Stuart! 

Good run by you.

Nice training Michael.

Sounds like a nice day in Orkney OH.

MG1 great long run - well done!

NN you are fairly putting the miles in at the moment, a great build up for Loch Ness. 

Impressive tempo pace increase by you jason. 

Stewart how are things with you - did you get out today? I hope that the half is not still having an adverse effect on the recovery? 

That's a good session today Teknik despite the beer! 

Wow - amazing parkrun by you and Buddy NP! He must have been one happy doggie to be back to his usual Saturday run. 

Stuart sounds like a much needed rest!! I hope you managed a few miles.

HM4 hope you get your run tomorrow.

An early start for me today to drive to Aberdeen for the parkrun. It wasn't half windy along the seafront. Felt pretty yuck in the first mile and considered stopping (too many filling station black coffees ) but carried on. Wore the garmin but didn't look at it. Came in  9th overall, 1st lady and set a new course record for my age group. A PB 20.01!! Actually despite the 2s I am happy as my training must be working - 20:38 a few weeks back - and next time I only have to knock 2s off!

NN well done - a great result! 

Stewart good to be getting the miles in again, you have been very patient coming back from injury. Was it JS tonight - and OH?

jason a well earned recovery day. 

Michael a nice quick run.

NP great to have you back! Buddy will be happy to get his trainers on again. 

Teknik nice easy miles today.

A progressive run for me - just a short one with strides at the end.  A bit tired as out later but glad I did it.

NN I have never cycled alone - I go out with the cycle club on a Sunday morning for anything from 40-70 miles. I started on the bike when injured in the springtime then once I could run again the bike was dropped. Now back to once a week as it is so sociable. Frankfurt is the marathon that I am training for. 

HM4  well done!

Stuart those are fast intervals but I know what you mean about losing speed.

Teknik that's a great interval session from you too! 

MG1 sounds like our weather was similar. Not long to go for you until taper time. Just as the nights/mornings get dark. 

An easy 45 minutes for me tonight. Counting the days until I head to the sun then once back it will just be a couple of weeks of dark/cold running until Frankfurt.
