Hello all! Just had a quick check in; I got my London magazine in so must defer that.
Congratulations AGF!!!
Everyone else keep up the great training you lucky folks.
I'm not running but I am training - on the bike. Have entered a road race and a sportive just to keep me going.
I have an appointment to get the ankle checked out as that's 6 months now.
The Portugal holiday was the best ever as I took the bike and enjoyed it much more than the times I've been running (!) but that was mainly down to whole days out, hundreds of miles and custard pies!
Stay safe and injury free all and I'll be checking in after the spring marathons,

NN good to see you taking a rest day, I take every Friday off and love it. MG1 sounds like a much needed rest day too.

Stuart that sounds like a brutal session! Dont think I could ever run that fast

OH good to hear nice and mild with you especially if you are planning to get back into the sea - brrr!

Gaz I hope it was dehydration and that you still feel  ok.

Teknik good luck! Hope the weather is good. You will fly round

NP are you parkrunning tomorrow too?

Stewart it will be great to get your son home

Felt a lot better last night thanks although that was my second day without chocolate so still not 100%!! Did 10.5 miles with a few threshold efforts at the end. Not easy gauging pace when so dark and can't see the garmin - roll on the light nights!! Rest day today.

Stuart I've doen GNR twice. Second time I was int he front pen and it was fine at the start - the usual folk barging past like rockets that you then trot past afte a mile or so!

Well done on the double day MG1.

Great MP run again Teknik. Nice to see things keep improving.

OH that sounds like a nice run.

NP another good double day and nice recovery run.

Gaz good that you can juggle things around to get the running in.

Intervals for me last night didn't go so great. Meant to be 6 and only did 3 and had to stop and jog back to the car. Was really dizzy at the start of the week so must be that. Will get out tonight for a few miles.

Well done on goal pace runing in the morning MG1. My legs are extra slow in the morning! I cycle twice a week and really enjoy it as so sociable but still run about 7 times a week.

OH good to see the legs have recovered from Sunday. The guys in the cycle club are great but they do know it would be an hour or so if I had to change a tube!!

Very speedy NN, that will definitely have the desired effect on the half time as you already have bags of endurance.

Great turbo NP  nice double day too! Dogs are lovely when they decide that they want some extra perfume.

Teknik nice MLR. A bit chilly here this morning but think it is set to warm up!

Sundown and Gaz more good running by you.

Nice LT session Stewart. That canal is like a wind tunnel so that is a quality run. Great news about your son, he will be looking forward to getting home!

A run in the woods for me yesterday morning then had the chance to get out on the bike along Loch Ness side in the evening so 4 * 10 minutes pushing the big ring before doing a hill fast and getting a QOM on Strava!   Think I passed a JS group at the bottom of the hill next to Dores Road roundabout - were you there Stewart? Recovery 45 minutes in the trainers this morning.

Nice combo of recovery and strides Teknik.
NN enjoy the track. The cycle was 3:47 but that included a puncture, waiting at the top of hills and regrouping a couple of times.
Well done on the 18 Stuart.
An easy 45 mins recovery run for me.

Stewart and OH fantastic results - well done! Also love the reports. OH it is Morayshire, did you expect water?!

NN sounds the best plan to leave the 21 for another day.

NP great long run - very speedy!!

Fantastic tempo run Teknik. You have to be pleased with that.

Stuart I hope you get a good day for the long run.

61 miles on the bike yesterday. Great fun and had a Freddo Frog instead of a gel whilst some kind chap sorted my flat tyre.

Good luck with the PMP run today Stewart and I hope your son is doing well. OH good luck if you are also doing the Kinloss race.
Sundown I am generally ok with no water at this time of year up to around 18-20 miles. I do get thirsty but am too lazy to carry it. However we are all different and comes down to trial and error!
A well deserved cut back week Teknik. The Mara HR test went well.
NP great parkrun!
MG1 really good long run. Nice pace!
Stuart and Gaz I hope you both recover well soon. Horrid when illness gets in the way of running...& tric with work. fingers crossed next week is better.
15.5 miles for me yesterday, just nice and easy with a faster finish. getting ready to head out on the bike now.

Mace hope to see you in London. Cakes in the park?
Stuart sounds like you need a rest until you are better!
More great running NN! I can't wait til there's some daylight on the morning run.
Good running today after he intervals Teknik. My legs were heavy this morning after last nights 75 mins with threshold at the end and intervals on Tuesday night.
Stewart thinking of you x
NP had the iciest run this morning but snow is going and should be gone by tomorrow, I hope!! Well done on the swimming and run. Tough getting out sometimes. Nice double today.
OH nice and mild with you, hope that's headed our way.
HM4 I did lots of Aqua jogging before Xmas and can be done no matter what the weather!!
MG1 that's the worst about hotels. I didn't sleep at all Saturday night. Still catching up!
Did treadmill intervals Tuesday. Not the best as exhausted. Managed a 75 min run with threshold at the end on Wednesday, a short skate along the road this morning trying to stay upright then out along Loch Ness side on the bike tonight. Nice in the dark avoiding deer and badgers! Rest day tomorrow

Stewart good luck for your son's op. Will be thinking about you x

Nice MP session NP! Great pace in the snow, you'll be flying even faster once it clears!!

MG1 good timing on the rest day after your PT session. Ouch! 

Nice MLR Teknik. Not easy when so cold, it must affect the muscles.

Hi NN  another high mileage week, you are doing great! Are you following the P & D 75 mile/wk plan? I am still toiling with my laptop being rubbish. I do use my iphone but looking back pages and posting is a challenge. Must get back to the habit of checking the thread daily!

OH sounds like you are getting better weather than down in Inverness.

CJ it depends -  I would normally not run until Wednesday or sometimes not until the weekend and just cross train until then but if you are tired probably best to take some extra time off before you start training again.

I did the Cancer Research 10k in London on Sunday for fun - not in 10k shape (never am!) but managed 42:22 which i was happy enough with (27th lady and 2nd in my age group) especially after all the cocktails on Saturday night!  45 minutes brisk on Monday, easy 30 mins yesterday morning then intervals last night but on the treadmill as snowy. Another run tonight and hope to get out on the bike Thursday night. Looking forward to the weather getting milder at the weekend and a longer run done.

Stuart well done on the swim. That's a tough interval session, the distance seems odd!!
Good set of intervals tric.
Amazing downhill pace gaz!! I couldn't do that on any downhill!
Another great double day NP! Impressive pace on the trail running
Shame about the injury HM4, I hope it gets better soon.
MG1 good PT session, I hope the legs are ok today.
Stewart that's a good mileage for your JS night, it was a bit breezy last night.
Got out for some intervals last night and then an easy run at 6am today. Plan is for a turbo session tonight so I'll avoid the snow F
