Chicksta - getting up at 4 am to train...gosh and I moan on the few occasions I get up at 5.15.  Respect!

Good effort alehouse.  Was the breathing terrible due to the cold you had/have?

G-Dawg - nice run!

Poacher - yes have done Marple a couple of times.  Last time was a few weeks ago, but I was poorly so just did it steady.  It was pretty muddy and wet in places then.  I've also done Glossop, which is nice.  A lovely park!

KR - nice speed work and miles!  No I'm not racing Bramley, I'm going to do it as a progressive run depending on how my legs feel.  Hope to just do the last couple of miles at marathon effort.

Freemers - as above re Bramley.  This week I'm on half term so am able to do doubles every day.  I've been doing 3-4 a week for a few weeks now and am hoping to keep them up most days when back to work for the next 6 weeks before taper.  I do however find it difficult when at work as it means getting up at 5.15, which often isn't inviting when it's dark, wet and windy!  Sounds like you're getting some good paced runs in!

Leslie - yes I'm hoping the next 6 weeks will be up around the 70 mark.  I've had a few up around there, then illness so a couple of lower weeks.  This week I hope to get up to 80 if all goes to plan.  It's so much easier when not at work! 

Today I ended up doing 2 x 5 miles easy rather than the group run.  I started with them, but even at their easy pace it was going to be too fast for me after my first session in ages yesterday.  Really enjoyed both my runs though in lovely sunshine and wonderful countryside.  Easy runs now for the rest of the week until Bramley.

Good luck BB!

Good running today folks! 

Wabo - sorry about the car.  Hope the store can give some help!

alehouse - I get it now.

2 x 5 miles for me today.  I set out with the group of 4 guys this morning, but my legs were tired from yesterday's session so even their running easy was going to be too much for me especially on the hilly route chosen.  So BR and I did a nice loop more at my easy pace, which was better for my recovery.  We also then did an afternoon run, which was a lovely one in the countryside in nice sunshine taking in lots of historical buildings with BR as my guide. 

Ref retirement -  I too would most probably do a couple of days of something, but I think I'm going to be getting on a bit before I get to retire.  Will just have to make the most of the school holidays...

0053 - sounds like you have a good plan.  Good luck with relay, where is that?

Gul Darr - you were out early this morning - well done!  When I'm at work I have to do any morning runs early.  I'm looking forward to light mornings to make them more enjoyable. 

I had a good training day yesterday with the session and then a very easy recovery run so 10/6.  Today off out for around 12 miles with a group or guys.  I'm the slowest in the group so hoping it won't be too hard work, especially as the route planned is a bit bumpy.  Looking forward to it though.

alehouse - yes a jog recovery, never a walk, always keep moving at a run pace... We tend to jog backwards to the slowest runner in the group.

Today has gone to plan with a 10 pyramid session and 6 miles recovery tonight.  A little like the old days, apart from the pace.

Which HM alehouse?

Hope you're feeling back on it tomorrow RFJ.

Birch - glad the knee was okay this morning.  I know what you mean by 'managing' the pain as I have to do that regularly with my Achilles. Nice morning for running today!

Gul Darr - good miles in the bank.

G-Dawg - I saw that on FB.  I'm a bit old and not fast enough lol, but Jools and a few others could qualify.

I've not done any faster sessions for a while so was very pleased to a pyramid session this morning with a group of friends.  10 miles in the bank and pace felt easier than it has for a while.

Good running WP.  Hope the asthma isn't too bad!

Donaldo - sounds like your run was quite hilly!  The pyramid session is one of my favourite speed sessions.  Neither of us have done any speed work for a while, so this worked well and as we run together and are very different paces it allows a good run for both as the faster one jogs back to the slower on the cool downs.

Really enjoyed this mornings session, got 10.01 miles altogether.  Will have to do this more often, then maybe I'll feel like some of my pace is coming back.

Today's post run food was salmon and poached eggs - very nice.

Will look out for you Dustin.  We'll have on a Penistone FPR vest in white with some read and black on it.  Moved clubs to our local one to make it easier to train with people.


Donaldo - the recovery runs are done very easy.

Gosh just too much to keep up with on here.  Well done all for some really good training runs.

Birch - sorry you didn't do Dewsbury, but maybe better for the knee not to.  Times seemed to be good for most there.  I think they got the best of the weather over the weekend.

Badbark - I don't mind spring and summer early mornings.  Well done on the high WAVA!

KR - sometimes having a rest is the best.   Something I never used to find easy, but I do now!

Poacher - which parkrun did you do?

Sunday I didn't really run as I was feeling under the weather and had a could not be ar*sed day.  Did 14/3 yesterday in severe wind and rain, but enjoyed it and the pace was ok for me. Planning on doing Bramley 20 as a training run this Sunday.  Anyone else doing it?
