Bike It - sorry to hear it didn't go to plan. Well done on battling through to the end.
moof - excellent PB - sounds like you finished stronger than those around you!
Leslie - nice progress at parkrun.
OO - good parkrun by OO Jnr.
Lorenzo - nothing definite yet, except I straight training for whatever it might be on 3rd November! Yet more great hill work.
Fishy1 - hope you're fully recovered soon. Oh no, just read about your injury at the weekend. Take care.
Rennur - hope the mara was enjoyable this weekend.
Poacher - you need to ask for a refund.
GM - you have been busy!
marrows - that's a very decent session there; not a bad decision on the 10 miler. Will wait for PMJ to report back.
Wanted to do something that was vaguely like hills this morning and so headed to the other side of town to run up and down a railway bridge. Exciting stuff. So 7 miles @ 7:44 m/m including 2 miles up and down the aforementioned road.

VTr - you've have a good campaign; all the best for the race.
OO - parkrun should be a cinch after keeping up with the 3:02 mara Italian.
Overslept today till 4:55, so decided to cut back a few miles and up the tempo a bit. 12 miles inc. 8 @ 7:09 m/m. Sweating buckets now and struggling to control the mouse pad! Better go and get a shower.
All the best to PMJ too at Cabbage Patch and of course the Abo crew again. Anyone else racing?

PMJ - that really doesn't like a good weekend for you to be sloping off to Warwickshire!
Birch - good luck with the run tomorrow. I am hoping to do a parkrun within the next couple of weeks, but tomorrow doesn't look suitable.

Leslie - well done on reaching your target.
SJ - 2nd place sounds impressive.
marrows - I narrowly missed a head-on collision with an adult the other week.
Minni - sounds like you had a great time in York.
Good luck to the Abo crew - bit of a smackdown coming up, I sense.
Lorenzo - a proud dad!
Scary to think RJ is only 20 mins off the WR now!
Poacher - race report and more bizarre tales from Africa Training Camp - what a treat to look forward to!
10 easy miles d&d.

Leslie - well done on plugging away.
Abbers - charming letter! Good luck with the job hunting.
marrows - congrats on the sub 90.
Jools - are you feeling confident for Frankfurt?
PMJ - Shakespeare spring marathon is on a Saturday, but of course that doesn't help with sneaking in all the training and your 20 miles @ MP! It's 21 weeks and a couple of days to go to the raceway mara, so I would like to start training at the beginning of November, but still undecided.
Lorenzo - you beat me this morning - not up till 4:45.
SJ - hope the toe heals quickly.
moof - hope things come together on Sunday.
GM - recover well with today's double!
VTr - nearly there now - good luck!
4 recovery miles d&d.

Leslie - another good early run - nice to find someone to share those early mornings with too! Well done spotting my mistake. I meant to type 5 slow out and 5 easy back!
PMJ - very promising run - don't write off sub 60 yet!
GM - still all good training.
Decided to have a bit of a blast this morning, so after a decent warm-up did 3k in 11:28 (1k splits of 3:48, 3:51, 3:48). I was hoping for something a little bit faster, but that wasn't too bad. 7 miles in all.

Ah, of course, I meant 2017! That does seem a long time to wait...

Leslie - good early running!
Abbers - sorry to hear your news. Hope the right job turns up.
PMJ - nicely paced parkrun. Sounds like you've found a great little event too. Having second thoughts here as nothing seems to be working out - may revert to my original plan of an autumn marathon and London will have to wait until 2016!
SJ - oh no!!!
GM - nice double.
10 miles d&d. 5 slow out (8:48m/m) and 5 slow back (8:07m/m).

Leslie - well done finishing the 10 miler.

Speedy - good determination. Hang on in there!
Lorenzo - end of a good week's training.
Jools - well done for a good XC result. You should be confident.
Poacher - that's great - look forward to the report.
moof - might be worth an mile or two or short reps at MP to boost your confidence?
GM - sounds like a serious week lined up!
Rennur - pleased to hear you're off the bench - take care next weekend!
KR - nice parkrun - always to good to avoid scraping skin off!
6 easy miles inc. 6x100m relaxed strides.
Now off to look up RJ's result!

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?
