Wow, some great racing yesterday and impressive times. Well done to KR, SJ, JF2, Frazer and ssc. I can feel your pain though KR - must be so frustrating. I am sure you will get that sub 3 one day soon.
11 miles with 3 x 2 mile efforts this morning in 13:02 (6:39/6:23), 12:55 (6:29, 6:26) and 12:59 (6:32/6:27). Very pleased with that.

PMJ / Birch - same here, except no tea or toast
OO - great parkrun.
Badbark - cracking PB.
Leslie - very impressive track session.
Lorenzo - 7th place - nice one. And congrats to Mrs L.
All the best to SJ, KR and Frazer. "The weather looks perfect" - that's something you don't hear very often in Manchester! Hope I haven't missed anyone else.

Enjoy the 10k Lorenzo.

All the best to KR, SJ and Frazer tomorrow.
Anyone else racing?
3 mile recovery run d&d.

MsE - usually dark when I start and daylight when I finish at the moment.
GD - judging by how good my legs felt after the Spring Shakespeare does that show how good my Aldi shoes are for long distances Or how relatively little effort I put into it?
Frazer - thinking of using P&D 18/70 for my next campaign. Hope your training wasn't compromised too much by the man flu.
Birch - taper going well, I see!
Lorenzo - nice intervals.
9M inc. 7x800m off 400m recoveries this morning in: 2:56, 2:57, 2:55, 2:57, 2:57, 2:59, 2:57.

Jools, MsE and KR - nice speedwork.
Frazer - good to hear from you. How did you find the 18/70P&D? All the best for Sunday.
Badbark - great pacing of those reps. And yes, wear the NI vest - you've earned it!
Did my 3 mile recovery run earlier this morning.

Leslie - good 16 miler on tired legs.
KR and SJ - not long to go now. Must be carb-loading time soon!
ssc - good news on the garmin.
3 x 3 x 300m off 100m recoveries and 400m between sets. 1: 0:59,0:59, 0:58. 2: 0:59, 1:00, 1:00. 3: 1:00, 1:00, 1:00. That was hard work! Quite a bit shorter recoveries than last week's 400s.

Abbers - good effort at Bournemouth - sounds like a tough day.
Iron Mike - 3:15 could be worth a shot. People convert HM times very differently, so it's difficult to tell.
Badbark - cracking MLR - you are really on form, which is amazing considering you have just had the chicken pox!
Birch - GEAR 10k is on 3rd May, so less than 3 weeks now.
Bike It - hope things pick up soon.
ssc - sounds like a plan. Hope the garmin is still OK.
3 mile recovery run d&d.

Good parkrunning from OO, PMJ and RFJ. All the best today OO.

Minni - good news.

Looking forward to hearing how GD gets on at Brighton.

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?
