Teknik that sounds like progress on the HR?

MG1 sounds like a nice mix with the PT work.

NP fantastic!! Is that in August? Great to have a target like that - was it last August that you competed in Ireland?

Stewart good to see you tonight and well done on the reps last night. So much for my mile reps starting slowly - first one was fastest! I did decide to keep them at the sharp end of tempo pace so slowed the others down although by the time I did the last one it seemed really breezy! Excuses, excuses eh! A good session with the group.

Great weekly stats Teknik - good that the rain is with you, hope it stays there and does not venture North just yet!!

MG1 also good week's stats. Nice tempo running.

Stewart are you still on holiday this week?  Eight weeks today I'll be off.

Stuart enjoy the recovery week.

NN nice MLR. Great that we're all complaining about the heat - it'll be cold soon enough!

NP a good mix of training yesterday and today. I am just watching the games on TV and loving it. I didn't apply for tickets but it looks great! The home nations are all doing so well.

An easy 5.4 miles for me last night then an easy 3.6 miles this morning. Hope to get to the club tonight.

Good to hear NP - please please watch that back in the garden!! Dangerous places gardens. 

46.5 miles on the bike this morning. It may have been short but it was tough! I'll swear all the guys thought they were in TdF or in Glasgow. As usual just me and my pal the only 2 ladies in the group. Loch Ness side was very windy, 700m of climbing which was fine but then we met up with the fast group and 4 of us got dropped - from miles 31-40 over 20mph but the fast guys were out of sight! Enjoyed it despite that.  Got home to a power cut and I was so hungry!!  Just in from a short recovery run (4.25m). My highest mileage week since mid March - 51 miles, av pace 7:59mm, av HR 152 in 6:45:11.

AGF I do a few clams, squats, planks etc twice a week - not many but better than nothing and I feel as if it does help. Congratulations on the anniversary!

Stewart that is an amazing time given that you have been injured and just back to running. Bodes well for Dyke 10k!! 

NN hope you got the long run done and it was not too hot!

Stuart nice relaxed parkrunning from you today. 

OH you did loads of miles in the springtime and with Cape Wrath, you need some down time. 

MG1 that is great to go out and just do an unexpected 20 miles! 

Teknik that's a shame, take care. As AGF says there'll be other races.

AGF you are running well at the moment - that is a seriously fast 10k you did today and well done on the gym work.

Rest for me yesterday then a nice relaxed 14 miles this morning.

That sounds like hard work OH. Hope the ankle wound heals fast.

Stewart a little cooler by 7pm - 28 degrees when I left Elgin. 

AGF nice 10 miles early on.

NN well done getting out between shifts.

MG1 I'm thinking the same but it's nice to be relaxed and just enjoy the training. 

An out and back route for me tonight with a few minutes faster on the way back.  Amazing how you think the legs will not move faster but they do!

Cross post Stuart, you have been doing a lot this week - a recovery week sounds good!

Stuart that's a lot of miles you are doing, not surprised you are feeling tired.

MG1 I hope the double went well.

Well done HM4. Good that you are ready to build the miles.

An easy run for me tonight.

Nice HM4! I just find my legs prefer the warmth as they don't feel like they are made of wood. When it's cold I take about 3 miles to warm up but when it's a bit warmer a mile or so is fine.  Must be age!
