Oh dear Mathschick Such a shame about the young lass. So sad that she felt the need to take her own life. Hope your challenge went well today.

18 miles for me..tough going..think my legs are still a tad tired from track and my race last Sunday. Would normally have left my long run till Sunday but the weather was better for today than tomorrow.

Yes AF...bossman Hope your birthday was good.

Mathschick  Well done on your Half Marathon in Barcelona I do find that there seems less crowd support in foreign races and defo no charity folk although I can say the crowd was good at Lisbon however patchy at bits. Prague was much the same

Well I did my Half marathon on Sunday and the weather conditions were brutal. Very strong wind,gales icy cold sleet and snow plus a bit slippy underfoot and a very undulating course  As I said earlier I wasn't looking to PB but to do it my hope to be marathon pace and finished in 1.58.16 so was more than happy given the tough course and weather. Really only 3 mins off my PB  and was 7 th in my age category out of 35.

Hope everyone is well. its still not great weather wise up here

Speak soon

Mathschick  Enjoy Barcelona and the race

AF Wow impressive mileage  I too have a half marathon on the 22nd...its a hilly one so wont be fast. I am going to do 16 miles tomorrow or Sunday and then do my half the following week which will be  a cut back in mileage week for me anyway so the half will count as my long run for that week then ramp up the distance the following week. 

My weekly mileage this week is 32 miles. The most for a long fact I am up to 60 miles for February already whilst my total February miles last year was 67

Did my track session last night 1km repeats with 60 seconds recovery..I did 6  Short 3 mile recovery jog this morning.

Hope everyone is ok and yes you are a naughty AF for forgetting about us.

Sounds fun Ecky and great to keep your motivation up. Well done

15 mile run for me this morning and was a great to be out after being stuck at work all weekend. Averaged 9.55 m/m which is what my long slow runs should be paced I am told Speeded up for the last mile which was 8.3m/m and there were a few marathon paced miles in there too 9m/m so training all going well so far

Hope everyone is well
