GD - pleased to hear your calf is improved. Just be very careful today.
Abbers - keep on plugging away.
PMJ- good to explore a new route.
KR - nice progressive run.
VTr - one way to loose weight, I suppose! Hope you're soon 100% again. The last 2 winters have been mild locally - no leggings since early 2013!
ssc - enjoy the long run this weekend.
Just logged my last Jantastic run. 3 recovery miles. We are back in 1st place!

Birch - you are clocking up some serious miles.
Leslie - take care now.
SJ - nice paces.
RFJ - good MP work.
Blisters - good swim - I would sink before half that distance.
Lorenzo - nice riverside run.
OO - good luck with your 100th parkrun.
Been out-gulled today by the pair of you!
9 miles inc. 5 @ 6:59 m/m. Should have been a little bit faster but a way to go yet by the look of it.

Lorenzo - good to hear you're still clocking up those hilly miles.
Jools - consistent progression!
Birch - good session - standing recoveries? Or did you just divide the 2 x 9.344 metres into very small chunks?!
Badbark - very impressive training - 1 PB in the bag and one more on the way by the look of it.
KR - looking very strong. Taper starts next week then?
PMJ - post-marathon training going well.
SJ - worth a go!
GD - sounds positive, but don't rush it.
3 mile recovery run d&d.

SJ - good double session. Hope the interview went well. I was just delivering a few cards.
Blisters - lovely cake. A fjord and glacier cake is pure genius!
GD - oh no!!! Take care. If in doubt, rest it a bit more.
Jools - hope it was a good club session.
VTr - sounds like things are on the up!
Bike It - good restraint.
Abbers - consistent running.
OO - amuse-toi.
5 miles with 8 x 200m this morning. First time in ages that I've done reps in the park and I must have got the tree markers mixed up, because the reps on the 2nd 200m stretch were consistently slower than the 1st! Take these with a large pinch of salt: 0:36, 0:38, 0:35, 0:37, 0:35, 0:38, 0:36, 0:37.

Leslie - great parkrun. Hope the hamstring is OK.
Lorenzo - good 20 miler.
OO - good parkrun efforts by you and jnr.
PMJ - excellent parkrun.
GM - I'm hoping to do the Grand East Anglia Run 10k. A long way to go to get to sub 40 fitness though! Nice 4 miler.
Blisters - good to hear from you. Do you have any plans to race a tri? Ah, in September maybe?
Birch - a varied 21 miler!
Bike It - excellent effort. Well done.
ssc - a mixture of those sessions sounds good - just not all 4 in one week!
Jools - great HM result.
JF2 - nice 10k. You must be gutted to miss sub 40.
RFJ - another good weekend of running!
Wool - still a great time.
Attempted some 10k paced intervals this morning. 7 miles with 4 x 1200m in 4:53, 4:51, 4:45 and 4:53 - not too bad (4:48 was the target). Got lots of work to do yet.

Bike It - hope the ultra goes well - should be well under way by now.
GD - excellent way to round off your pre-taper training. A well-earned beer.
RFJ - nice steady pace.
Lorenzo - enjoy the off-road 20 miler.
4 miles with 8x100m strides to finish my recovery week.

SJ - excellent work - some very speedy intervals. Looking forward to some speedwork myself. 6 weeks till the local 10k. So ease into next week, then thrash it for 4 weeks, ease up again and go for sub 40. At least that's the plan.

OO - very convenient!
4 slow miles / 2 easy miles d&d.

Long run distance v. weekly mileage

Can I bend the 25-33% rule of thumb when marathon training?

Stretching and recuperation

Should I still stretch even when I'm not training?
