Stuart that's a shame that the race didn't go to plan but well done carrying on with the hip injury. A couple of my friends did it - one who got 1:28 at Aviemore recently was just over 1:30 so it was a slower race without a doubt! Hope the hip recovers fast.

Stewart great report for Brodie. It was blowing a gale up with us yesterday so well done! Must have been windy at Ft Wm too Stuart.

NN that's a fantastic result in your 10 miler, well done!!

Teknik hope you are feeling better. 

Lots more great running - OH good recovery from Snod and NP that looked a fun parkrun!

The ankle played up big time after last Tuesday's intervals and should not really have run on Wednesday morning as that set me back a lot - I never learn!

Spin classes, metafit and a great club spin yesterday have kept me out of trouble. Will try a short run tonight but it should settle by the end of the week, Just cannot build miles or speed without it breaking down. Feels like something moving around near the ankle joint.

Well done OH, great result at Snowdonia! Has anyone heard from jason?

MG fantastic run at GSR!

Gaz sounds like you are on target for your goal marathon time. Nice tempo work.

MG1 well done on getting motivated to get out - not easy!

Stewart good intervals and something to work on next time.

Stuart as soon as you pin on a number you will run faster, always seems a big ask in training!

NP good to see you out with the group again - that will be the super fast group you did your long runs with last year?

Weather rubbish here on Saturday so just a short run. On Sunday, first bike club run since February and typical that the fast boys turned up!! Ended up with the fast group and loved it. Cooking along nicely at 28mph on the flat, just an easy spin for the guys but a good workout for me especially when taking my spell at the front! Recovery run this morning and intervals planned for tonight.

Such a pain when the garmin dies NP especially when you want to keep an eye on the timing.

Great total MG1.

Gaz I keep an eye on HR  as a rough guide but I just have to think about work and it goes up by about 20bpm so don't use it 100%!

Did something to my knee last night. It was dark and I may have landed badly but couldn't put any weight on it initially. Managed to limp back to the car. Seems ok now so hope it was just a twist or something short term. Plan was a run and turbo tonight but will see how it is.

OH that piece of correspondence was totally uncalled for, what on earth do they achieve by sending it out after the race?!

HM4 well done. Had to laugh at your friend taking her phone on a 10k race. I don't even take mine on training runs!! 

Stewart I hope the calf behaves. Nice intervals at Queens Park.

Stuart I hope that your niggle goes away - and cold!

MG1 great to run on closed roads.

Well done NN on the half! 

NP will you be chasing your course record?

Welcome new folks.

Managed 41 miles last week which surprised me. Highest mileage in a long time. Easy runs last night and this morning and plan some intervals tonight.

That's a shame about your race OH but still good training banked!

Great pace on the mile reps Stuart. I did a few at a more sedate pace on the treadmill last night. 

Stewart hopefully you will get onto the track tonight. I used to go there on Saturday mornings when nice and quiet.

NP great report and well done, I hope that the back is improving.

MG1 good session last night, I must do more core work.

An easy half hour yesterday morning - the first morning where everything was totally white with frost. The a treadmill run in the evening. Ankle no worse.  An easy 45 minutes planned for tonight. I should also have a spin on the bike but will see how lazy I feel after the run.

Well done to Buddy for a great race, NP - and of course to you too!! 

Stewart nice loop today.

I have done Aviemore Stuart, it's all downhill from Glenmore (the road to Cairngorm) to the Four Seasons hotel on the main street. You would smash it! 

MG1 sounds like you have recovered well.

Ankle a bit niggly (as usual) but a lot better than last week. Just cycled yesterday, had entered a sportive but was feeling pretty rubbish so just did 40 easy miles. Did a 10 mile run this morning followed by a 34 mile spin on the bike. 

Hope everyone had a great weekend.

Stuart and NN those were fast runs the other day! 

Stewart very speedy track intervals.

MG1 good to see you will be resting.

NP no more physio, drove down 5 times in May/June for shockwave therapy but that was it. 

No run last night to let ankle settle and a gentle 30 minutes on the treadmill tonight; so far seems better than Tuesday.

That's a nice set of races coming up NN. Envious of Amsterdam - never done the half but it's a great atmosphere on race day.

Stuart hope the club session went well. Nice to compare the numbers with January.

NP looking forward to cake in the park (if the ankle behaves!) Some speed those intervals of yours!! 

HM4 good luck with the property, fingers crossed there will be no change for you.

MG1 enjoy the recovery. 

A very gentle treadmill run for me last night. Ankle not too bad at the time but swollen and sore after although it has calmed down a lot now so either treadmill again tonight or turbo - very wary now of pushing it and gaining nothing.

MG1 very well done, a fantastic result after all the hard work! 

Stuart shame about your race not happening but sounds as if you have a plan.

NP sounds like the holiday was a good break. Pleased to hear the toe injury is clearing up.

Stewart great to see you building up the miles again. 

Did my first hill session on Saturday and the ankle is a lot worse tonight so think I'll leave the hills for now.

OH sounds like you are having a good time with a lot of different running.

HM4 good to have the Champs as a goal.

NN shame you weren't well for the half but better that than at Amsterdam.

Teknik the training is going great for Frankfurt!

Stuart you are really putting the miles in and your 1k reps were super speedy!!

Stewart lots of mixed training. I saw that you had done Milton of Leys - a tough hill. I run up that way to get to Daviot woods in winter.

MG1 super fast long runs - looking good for Jersey.

Lots more great training going on

Took yesterday off as so tired. Have done a couple of interval sessions on the treadmill, good to get the legs turning faster. Still have a long way to go to get any speed back. Hope everyone has a good weekend and good luck any racers!
