Fantastic report MG1 and time, very well done!

Well done on your run too HM4.

Teknik really sorry to hear that, get well soon.

lots of good running going on, hope everyone still gets a chance to get out in this horrid weather.

Injured a tendon in my foot last week, not sure if I can run more than 4 miles but will give it a go.

RJ great that you are back running and all well. 

HM4 have you had a chance to get out this weekend? 

Michael it certainly is getting chilly out there early on! Nice run. 

NN shame about the lie in but well done going and helping out - sounds like fun. And great news on the legs. 

Stuart great that you got a run done and MG1 11 miles! Fingers crossed everyone seems to have recovered very well. Off to look at the map MG1.

Did my last longish run (2 hours - 15.8m) before Frankfurt - forgot to set the garmin for the three 5k/10 mins recovery so stopped and reset at mile 2. Left calf a bit niggly but it settled down and other than that the run was fine. The fast bits were too fast but I am rubbish at pacing and they didn't feel at all tough.

Cross post Stewart well done getting the runs in. Stratherrick is a tough hill! I hope you get a chance to relax at the weekend.

Rest day here  and the sunniest day in a while! 

Nice swimming Stuart. Feel much better now thanks. I was pleased with the intervals as I was in two minds about heading out or lying down.

RJ great to give the body a rest, you deserve it!

HM4 great if you enjoy your races.

Gosh it must be coming up to winter with XC season NP! Sounds like a lot of swimming, well done!

Stuart great going with the tempo running already. 

Teknik stay warm and recover well. You have done all the training that matters so a few more days rest will do no harm.

HM4 views in a 10k! I'm just happy not to throw up!! 

MG1 good luck with that if the legs are feeling fine, all the training has been done. 

Michael sounds like you have had a lot of rain too. 

Felt rubbish yesterday and too dizzy to drive so stayed at home but did manage to get out later for some intervals. Not great but did them. Then today just an easy run, HR a bit high but 11 easy miles done. Typical that the night I decide not to wear a jacket it tips down and only 8 degrees, brrr!

Nice tempo Stewart! I hate having to stop too.

NN speed work is never a good thought but great once it's done! The Loch Ness marathon route is a regular club cycle route too - out the marathon route then back along the top road.

Teknik I hope you are felling better? A good time to get the lurgy rather than in 2 weeks!

Stuart you are keen doing faster running already.  Take care with that high HR.

AGF and mace - hope you are both well!

MG1 enjoy the recovery!

An easy 30 minutes for me last night and this morning - same planned again for tonight.  Shocking weather here today and ended up doing my morning run on the treadmill.

RJ fantastic - another thread PB!!!  I can't imagine you holding back with the celebrations!  Well done, great report.

MG1 loved your report too - sounds like a really good, well run event. You seemed to run very strongly then whole way and sounds as if you can take a fair bit off that time next one round.

Stuart to be honest I used to always aim for sub 3:!5 but it depends how I feel on the day and how the next 3 weeks go - I'll probably have a bash at it. However, I've never taken chunks off my time so have to be realistic.  Well done on another run - and NN too. Amazing after Loch Ness just last week.  I was running past the mile markers on the road today and thinking about you both! 

HM4 good that your run felt easy.

Out for a recovery coffee and cake this afternoon.

Michael nice fast run last night.

NP sounds like a good hill run today - very speedy! 

Stewart an impressive mileage for the week - a few lower mileage weeks will do no harm and the time will fly past. 

Teknik that is a great last long run. I did my first 20 miler this morning!  Last run over 20 miles was VLM - felt fine and I also did some faster bits including 3k fast at the end. Pace for that was 6:58mm and although short was fairly tough at the end of the run and pretty windy out there today but a fun run.  Overall the pace was 7:45mm for the 21.84m.

That's a great recovery week Stuart and an impressive run this morning. 

Teknik nice club run today.

Good luck for tomorrow RJ and MG1. I hope the weather is good for you and you get the run you want from all the training you have done. 

Great running today NP - very speedy!! Enjoy tomorrow's 5m race too. At least Buddy gets lots of recovery time after the op! 

A nice easy few miles this morning - forecast looks good for tomorrow although today was a bit chilly!!  And it has turned so dark in the week I was away!
