marrows - nice intervals.
Leslie - well done on toughing it out.
Abbers - sounds promising - take it easy.
Sorry guys, my earlier post was a bit ambiguous. I meant that this morning I did my final interval session - my Magic Mile event is on Friday at 5:30 am (not expecting anyone else to turn up!)

Fishy - nice hilly 13.4 miles.
SB - good to bounce straight back after a disappointment.
GM - that is terrbile news - really sorry to hear that. And no need to apologise.
Minni / MsE - cracking Thunder Run! Well done.
marrows - good luck with the interval session - I've been doing a mixture of shorter and longers reps over the last couple of weeks and it's ages since I'd done any either. Haven't a clue though - just making it up as I go along.
TAR - 3 beats me.
VTrunner - good training.
SJ - just epic. Brilliant report.
Final interval session before the Magic Mile this morning. Just 4 x 300m to save the legs a bit (0:54, 0:55, 0:55, 0:56).

PMJ - that sounds like a fantastic result in scorching heat for the 5k.
SB - good effort on a really hot day - obviously would have been significantly faster on a cool one.
SJ - what a result! Fantastic performance. Looking forward to a full report.

OO - you need to work somewhere less gastronomically appealing.
Abbersb - the dog is going home today, but we're talking about looking after her on a semi-permanent basis as the in-laws are finding a bit much now. I'll have to switch to middle-distance running!
SJ - good luck!
Jools - nice LSR. Enjoy the marathon.
Fishy - took the dog for a walk on the beach last night and it felt a bit nippy with the sea-breeze.
marrows - nice racing. Enjoy the rest this weekend.
Progressive run for me this morning. w/u @ 7:32, then 4 tempo miles 6:58, 6:38, 6:30 and 6:14, w/d 8:11.

Abbers - Good to hear your comeback continues. 5:2x would be great, but unlikely. It's certain to be a solo effort, even though I did set up the event on the MT website!
marrows - good luck with the race today.
Leslie - 18 miles is good going in this heat.
4.5 mile recovery run d&d. The dog might be going home today which will mean one less thing to do in the morning.

Lorenzo - good news on the ankle.
OO - lol!
Birch - looks like you've lost 9 nails - nice one. Good session too!
VTr - lovely weather for a run.
SJ - good luck with Outlaw - nice targets.
Another 3 x 1km interval session this morning: 3:30, 3:31, 3:29. Faster and more consistent than last week. Still looking a bit weak for a 5:3x mile though.

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!

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.

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?
