Thanks for the advise ref the treadmill I will keep looking

Good luck Ant/ O4S and Redwood for tomorrow. 

Shildon/ Simon nice training from you this week.

Kfc- yes I'm in VLM, hoping to catch the 3:14:59 train! The 10mile runs look good

Col- you have a very good marathon time off 2 20 mile runs, did you run any further than 20 miles?

FRC- comrades omg! How many miles a week will you be covering? Do you have any rest days within your 14 day plan? Good luck and Give me a shout if you need a guinea pig for your coaching course.

Kiwi and Pink- nice runs from both of you. 

I can't believe a few of you will be in Oxford next week, I might pop down to do the park run myself

Barry/Pink ((( )))

Shildon- yippee first place, I only dream of running at the front of a race

Redwood- go on you know you want to sign up for a spring marathon, that's all we will be talking about soon!

Col- your Dublin training sounds very speedy. How many 20mile plus runs did you do?

Simon/ Free and anyone else who has a treadmill, what type of treadmill have you got? I'm hoping to get one for the winter months, what do you think I need to look out for? 

04S- did you take a rest day?

Carrot/ Col- hope who enjoyed your 1k reps. DD/Spoons- hill reps sound 

KFC/AA/LJ/ Ant- nice sessions from all of you. 

I think I like long runs yippeeee. I went out this morning and did just under 16miles avg 8:34 and I felt really good, hopefully it was the positive talk that I gave myself yesterday. I have been sorting out my mp again! I'm hopefully going to follow the 18/55 plan but change the long runs with a mixture from the 18/55-70 and 18/85.

KFC- that's what running should be all about Instead of us obsessing about what pace were doing, too less/ many miles, road or off road, speed work or long run, that reminds me must sort out tomorrow's run To keep on track........

Freemers- I'm taking your lead on focusing on long runs at the moment, well MLR's! I find it easier to complete a speed session as I know it will be over within an hour and a bit where as I still find it hard in my mind not legs to run for 2.5hrs plus! However once I start a marathon programme because the plan says run a 20mile run my mind can comprehended this.

Chick- is your back any better after your latest injections? Enjoy Poland.

Carrot- well done on your club handicap.

Ant- don't be so hard on yourself, I'm sure the jet lag and 20 miler affected your performance.

Iccle J- how is your November project going? Are you doing it by yourself or with others?

Col- well done in Dublin 10 mile quality runs seem the way to go( off to amend my plan AGAIN!)

welcome back Pink Lady and Barry. 

Minni- hope your groin/hip pain gets sorted ASAP, who said running was good for us???;-) 

KFC- hope you enjoyed your long run today.

2old- A week off??? I bet you will still cross train somehow

Shildon- hope you had fun at the parkrun today. Good luck and hope you get the London place.

O4S- good luck at the x country race tomorrow.

This week I have ran 2 long runs, 12 miles off road and 15 mile road run plus a 6 mile naked run avg 8:44mm, plus 2x 3hr walking up the hills and I don't feel guilty about now fitting in a speed session

Minni- nice 18m run, when you run in the hills do you run by miles or time on feet?

Shildon- very fast park run, what is your PB?

2old- you put me to shame on your weekly mileage.

Daren- that must be so frustrating, do you take on gels/ energy drinks prior to a race that you don't do on a training run?

Chick-nice long run, that will be a medium run in distance when marathon training starts! ( anything over 10miles scares me)

KFC- another great park run time.

DD- I'm taking it that you love the English weather;-)

X country yesterday was good. I was First Lady home for our club, only because 2 faster ladies didn't turn up! The ground was quite soggy in parts, very windy and 2 lap undulating course with a stream crossing. I was aware that other club mates were behind me but was hoping if I'm tired then hopefully they are. On the last 600meters I started to do strides for about 8 secs ease off then stride again, I overtook a few doing this. my time was 29:13 for 4 miles, 42nd, 9th v40.

Spoons- I replaced the chocolate with crisps and home made baking! I'm attempting to do your 5 min routine each day this month. 

2old- im reading and replying from a few pages back so I hope you haven't anymore injuries!

Redwood- have you ran Glos 20 before? just wondering if I should enter it???

minni- no hm just a full one or an ultra Will they be on or off road? I think the whole thread should take part in a park run in November, what a smack down that would be. Would you like to set us a date and we can all do a virtual park run??? What date is the Berlin marathon?

DD- that mountain sounds hard but I bet it's good for some hill reps.

Free- fantastic speed runs. 

IJ- welcome. Lots of great tips on this thread. Do you have a marathon planned for 2014? which plan did you follow for Palma?

chick- glad to see you are running again.

kiwi- does mr kiwi know that you have entered him into the half??? I've informed my hubby that he is doing a park run sometime this month to motivate him, the only run he has done so far is a 3k kids run!

AA- How was the shockwave treatment? 10mile run is great after only one treatment.

Shildon- thats a good level to get up to on the bleep test.

welcome Shazmo that's an impressive list of races I agree with long slow miles at the moment. I think if you can do most runs at mp now then in 12-18weeks time your mp should be quicker.

KFC- nice club run, good luck for tomorrow.

simon- nice run there. 

Not much running from me this week. I went to the club on Monday and was asked what pace I would like, 7:45-8mm please.  I had to pull out after 4 miles @ 7:20 but was happy that I continued at my own pace to make the run 8 miles. X country race tomorrow then I will ramp my mileage up next week. 

Good luck to all racers this weekend.

2old-good mileage from you

Spoons- the ultra sounded nice.

Shildon- that speed session looks hard.

Kiwi- you can have 4llbs of my weight that I have put on since giving up chocolate at the start of the month, wtf!!!

Chick/2old- when is Boston?? What programme will you follow?

O4S/ Redders- well done at Stroud. This race was on our race league had I have known you were both racing it I would of made an effort to get there instead of a 3k fun run with my children. 

DD- I bet you feel like your home again in the sun?

KFC- well done in your race.

Free- great to get another long run in.

AA- it's great to see that you are x training, I wish I could have your determination when I can't run, I just become a couch potato

Minni- I hope your feeling better today about yesterday's run.

kids are on half term this week so it will be a cutdown week for me ending with a x country race on Saturday yikes!!

KFC- nice speed session

FRC- speed work so soon after your ultra???? Well done you. Do you find you recover  a lot quicker off road than on road? I ask this as on Wednesday this week I did a 15 mile road run avg 9:01 mm and was wiped out all day. The previous two weeks I did off road runs (10 and 11 miles) and felt fine.

Ant- have a nice time in Hong Kong

Chick- cheers for the mail and good luck tomorrow.

Simon- that's a great come back run you must be happy with that.

Minni- it sounds like you have next year all planned I have a race in March and April and that's it at the moment, I wish I could forward plan like you. 

AA- good news that you know what is wrong, let's hope you can get it sorted soon. 

Carrot- great race report.

O4S- i hope you had a great race tonight.

2Old- can't you just be a couch potato for a bit??? How is your wrist?

I did a tempo run Monday, 15 mile run Wednesday, today I did a a S&C class with a 3 mile recovery run. So I'm thinking of hill reps tomorrow!

KFC-thanks for the information on speed endurance workouts they look very hard!

Freemers- glad you had a good 17 mile run, are you just keeping your long runs going or are you training for a race? Nice reps

Spoons-did your enter the half ironman? It's expensive or is that a cheap one?

pink lady- great timed mile Hope Barry and yourself have a great holiday. 

Chick- that's put me right off having the flu jab, hope your feeling better soon.

AA- fingers crossed it's good news tomorrow. 

Off for a 15 mile run tomorrow on the road and not off road! I was going to go very easy but tempted to speed up in the later miles, oh decisions
