I didn't notice the podium at the top of the results - d'oh! As well as judo, I am apparently suited to triathlon (obviously must be some variant not involving swimming or cycling) and wrestling.

Judo for me - what?! But not gymnastics, rugby sevens or weightlifting - tend to agree with that!

marrows - good positivity to say you feel ok!
Abbers - good patience.
Leslie - that's a tough session at any temperature - well done.
Fishy1 - more good running in the heat.
GM - welcome back.
4 mile recovery run d&d.

Lorenzo - amazingly fast mile by younger Lorenzito. Sorry to hear about your ankle.
Jools - still a good run on tired legs.
Fishy1 - very nice hilly long run.
Poacher - sounds like an enjoyable run.
OO - congrats on 1st V50 - cracking racing.
Rennur - still a very decent effort.
Abbers - good to hear you're back running - just take it easy. I think I've managed 5:3x in the past couple of years and not having done much speedwork in the last year, I'd be very happy to match that again.
Minni - it's obviously going to take a while to get back up to speed. Steady as she goes.
Leslie - excellent mileage last week.
Overslept this morning and only had time for 3.6 miles with 3 x 300m off 100m recoveries: 0:52, 0:56, 0:55. First one was too fast for the short recovery!

Quick drop in from me too. No running this weekend as I'd promised Mrs GD. Back out this morning for 5.5 easy miles. More intervals planned this week in prep. for a Magic Mile next week - anyone else signed up?

PMJ - very hot and humid here already.
Abbers - sounds like a lot of swimming to me.
Leslie - well done holding the pace for those reps.
Another 5 mile jaunt this morning.

Abbers - good to hear the leg feels fine - sensible to give it a few more days.
Leslie - nice recovery run.
My post from yesterday seems to have disappeared! Did 5 miles easy up to the in-laws and back to water the tomato plants again. 7 miles this morning including 3 x 1k reps off 600m recoveries. 3:32, 3:33 and 338. I could tell it was a long while since I've done much speedwork!

TAR - great report! Well done.
GM - sorry to hear things are not too good at the moment.
Overslept again and not out till 5.47 - squeezed in 8x200m off 200m recoveries: 0:35, 0:36, 0:33, 0:36, 0:34, 0:36, 0:34, 0:36.

GM - I often have a three-course breakfast at the weekend! Pleased to hear you're back out running again. The heat won't have helped yesterday.
SJ - Good effort - I am useless at swimming. My injury just before the Roadrunner marathon was the end of a two and a half year training period with nothing other than a few niggles.
Leslie - good week.
Speedy - hope you can get to see someone sooner.
VTr - good tempo run.
Birch - good racing from the Birch family!
OO - sorry to hear about the mix-up. Hope OO junior's parkrun victory and the concert made up for it.
My first week of speed began today with 5 miles @ 8:55 m/m!

TAR - good luck on Sunday! Watering the tomato plants would make a good euphemism for something or other, I'm sure.
Leslie - nice reps.
Poacher - nice double and gardening cross-training.
Overslept this morning and not out until a shameful 4:37am. Cut short LSR to 16 miles (12 @ 9m/m-ish and 4 @ 8m/m-ish). First breakfast and dog walk d&d. Now ready for second breakfast.

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?
