Jools - good reps.
Abber - training building nicely.
GD - why was the Grim Challenge postponed? Not enough mud?!!!
Ribs seemed much the same last night, so out early for 6 easy miles. Daren't try anything faster at the moment!

Birch - Yes, I thought Ladybower was more than 4 miles away - certainly from the centre of Sheffield anyway! Never heard of Rivelin. Could now narrow down your rough location to two possibilities by trilateration (I think that's right!)  ;)
SJ - 84 to 88, so just missed you!

Lorenzo - a very belated happy birthday to you! And congrats on the excellent marathon. Student life in Manchester seems an awfully long time ago!
Abbers - wise move to just gradually ease back into the schedule.
KR - We've got 2 sheds already and no room to swing a cat in either!
OO - nice parkrun in the storm! Saw branches all over the place at my local parkrun venue.
Badbark - happy anniversary and all the best with marathon no 10. Not liking the sound of those 8 min flat out reps!
Fishy - enjoy the snow.
SJ - nice 3.5 hour ride with backup. Enjoy the sculpure park - is the poppy display still there?
Bike It - +1 for the 4am solution
GM - 3rd place can't be a bad result!!! Hope things are quietening down.
Leslie - well and truly stitched up.
Birch - good training - is that the Ladybower dam?
PMJ - 2:47 is an impressive time!
Finally went out for a test run this morning. Just 1 mile. Felt a slight discomfort while running so didn't want to do too much. Will see now if there is any adverse reaction.

Bike It - nice target for Comrades. Hope your wife enjoys the dreadmill and remember, some of Norfolk is quite undulating!
KR - careful in that wind.
Leslie - pleased the op went OK. Sounds like you definitely needed to get rid of that bone! All the best for a speedy recovery and hopefully a return to running.
Jools - congratulations on both counts!
Abbers - moving in the right direction.
SJ - hurray!
Lorenzo - all the best for tomorrow. Hope the weather is OK.
VTr - pleased to here you're getting there.
Getting a bit more sleep now, and ribs not too sore. Thinking about going for a short run tomorrow morning.

Abbers - sounds promising.
Bike It - hope the sore muscles are improving.
Still no running here. MIght need to take the rest of Leslie's advice!

Jools - x-post this morning! sub 39 is still very respectable and I'm sure it wasn't the best day for racing!
Birch - nice one. After the tumble on Friday, my toe was more painful than the ribs. However by the evening, the toe was fine, but the ribs were worse, so I canned Saturday's recovery run. Then on Sunday morning, I had to dash home from Church to fetch something and I knew something was up with my ribs! 2 x 400m probably didn't help and it was very uncomfortable sleeping last night. Hopefully they'll settle down in a couple of days.
PMJ - nice sub 40 on a hilly course and a windy day.

OO - Good racing and nice to get your money back! No head torch for me. I just rely on the streetlights.
KR - great tempo run and parkrunning in the middle of a long run.
Bike It - well done. That's a good result all told. Nice report too.
GD - nice run.
VTr - great news!
Birch - excellent XC racing to beat your rival again.
Fishy - well done in the HM. That course would be great if they ever had a calm, dry, cool day!
Lorenzo - good racing at Epsom!
No running for me this weekend. After a sore toe healed up, my ribs are now really painful.

KR - hill reps - what are they? ;)
OO - all the best for Sunday.
GM - sub-tropical!
A bit of a disappointing 17 miler here this morning. First half @ 8:24 and second @ 8:01 m/m, but the wind was picking up on the way back. However just pleased to be in one piece after taking a tumble just after 5 miles when I ran directly into a kerb in the dark. Fortunately it was a soft landing on grass.

SJ - some great targets there!
GM - my recovery runs are usually somewhere around 9:00 m/m. Shorts here too, but need more than one layer on top now!
VTr - hard to resist some easy running, but a bit more rest could do wonders.
Abbers - 5x300k sounds like an awful lot of swimming for a landlubber like me!
Meadower - hope the cold has cleared up enough for you to enjoy your 50th parkrun.
All the best to Fishy at the Shakespeare HM on Saturday.
9 slow miles this morning.

Abbers - glad to hear rest and ice is working. Hopefully you'll be back on the road next week.
SJ - making a plan is great fun, isn't it? One downside of just using P&D this time.
GM - 130 miles is beyond scary.
Leslie - all the best for next week. Let's hope it sorts things out.
5 mile recovery run 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?
