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!

Teknik nice MLR today and at least you got out yesterday, would have been easy to do nothing.

Stuart, another good MLR. Great when they feel easy.

HM4 are you doing any running these days?

Stewart that was a good spin you did yesterday. I went out at night - 8 degrees, rain and getting dark so early. Cut it short so a pretty miserable 19 miles.

MG1 good to hear that all going to plan.

Should get out tonight for a short fartlek. Couldn't face another 5:30am start so will just have to miss the cycle.  Could always turbo whilst watching the Vuelta...

Great 5k times NN and congratulations on the win!

Teknik very envious of you heading to Frankfurt. Apart from wrecking my ankle I have great memories of it and would love to do it again some day. Great mileage for August.

Stewart good FB photos. Also good monthly mileage by you, OH and GM. Just totalled mine up - 130 miles running, 332 cycled and 5 hours turbo.

Well done everyone else on lots of great training.

Rain horrendous last night so first treadmill run in ages - pleased it still worked! Threshold intervals done and legs tired this morning but crawled out of bed at 5:30am for 45 minutes 'easy'. As if anything is easy at that time.

OH well done on the half.

Teknik - nice long MP run. Which marathon are you doing?

MG1 - good tempo run, looking good for Jersey!

NP hope you go easy on those paving slabs!! How is the ankle?

Stewart how is your injury?

NN and Stuart great 10k results!

I did a solo 5k effort at the weekend. I found it pretty tough, fairly windy here on Saturday. Managed a 21:09 so loads of improvement required!! An easy 11.25 miles on Sunday, pretty much 8mm.

Great to see you running again Stewart 

NP Happy Birthday and I hope the ankle is improving! 

OH that sounded terrible for poor Elspeth, I hope she makes a speedy recovery. Very well done to you on the half.

Stuart great new parkrun PB!  Get that bike out! 

I've not read back too far but there is lots of great running going on; hopefully will keep up to date but any other time I've posted on here I've had a setback!

A bit of running and cycling for me. Longest run in months (9.25 miles) done on Saturday followed by hill reps on the bike. A short run and longer cycle on Sunday then a short run and turbo session last night.

Fantastic results NP  and great tactical running!

Lots more great running. Envious of all the autumn marathon training going on.

New orthotics arrived last week so getting used to them before I attempt to increase time on feet.

A stunning cycle last night with a refreshment stop at Dores Inn on Loch Ness side for a large glass of Pinot Grigio. The cycle home was interesting!

Thinking of you OH, hope all goes well.

NN I must admit although I have entered London again I do wonder if marathons are worth the injury risk (for me) rather than just being able to run.

NP you got to love dogs and their lovely habits - all part of their charm! 

Nice easy run Stuart.

MG1 great finish to your run.

30 minutes last night 8mm pace. Ankle niggly so will just keep the running slow and short in the meantime. Bike tonight in full summer gear!
