Great stuff Scott, Matt & Rob.

In reply Scott, I always planned to do as many XC races as possible this year. Problem is that my wife works 4 to 5 weekend night shifts a month which means I'm on daddy duty all day whilst she sleeps. And yep you've guessed it, they've coincided with every single XC race.

She has booked the weekend of the Nationals off though. However I was reminded once I'd entered the Nationals that it was because it's our daughter's first birthday. Doh. #shitdad

Good luck to all racing today. Gutted not to be at the Southerns XC but on Daddy duty instead. Have actually picked up a chesty cough so prob not a good idea to run it even if I could.

id forgot you could look up runners and predicted times. looks like I'm down for 1:15. I'm guessing this was from last year. I'd be happy to be in the 1:16 - 1:17 mixer.

SG - 5.45 is threshold for me. i'm not sure i could hold that pace for a HM at the moment. I guess we'll see at Woky! today was a double day with easy 4 this morning and this afternoons session was 3x 15 mins (90), covering just over 2.5 miles per rep with easy running warm up and cool down making it 16 for the day

Great report Ric. certainly deserves it's description of epic! What's next for you? Tough Mudder? Mighty Deerstalker? One of the Brutal races? 

Nice threshold run CC. Great consistency. Did you use your headtorch? Prob best to keep quiet if so

Hopefully thats the last of your lurgy then SG. Good to see you back training. Good use of the word rampaging to replace monstering too

Lit - will you be gracing the Champs start with your company again this year?

Bus - love a run when it clicks and everything just flows. Yesterday i went for an easy 45 mins and not only was the pace a significant step up of late, but all at a significantly lower average HR. It's amazing how you can just turn a fitness corner if you don't chase it.

Dean - fair play on the treadmill reps. I just can't seem to get along with treadmills at all unless for easy stuff. Great pace

PMJ - apparently CC wears a headtorch and just points it in front of him. He said you could give him a blow next time you see him.

I am the only one that has some horrendous visons of Simon looking all 'panty'. Christ.

Great stuff Dachs. Is the target to PB at Woky?

Good to see you back Scotch and great attitude - patience now will pay in the summer

Andrew - same applies as with Scott really. Cross training is dull as dish water but better than nought

I did a similar session to Dachs today if a little less volume at threshold. 8 miles @ 5.45 pace and just over 16 for the day.

So, how many forumites are at Wokingham?

A bit of rain here today and bloody cold but no snow thankfully. One of the 'features' of Tunbridge Wells are the brick pavements. Whilst they look very nice, they're a complete death trap in the cold - slippy as a ice rink. Nearly arse over tit a couple of times but managed to stay upright.

The forecast for tomorrow though is crap so I got out for my long run today instead - progressive 2hr 15min job. 30 mins @ 7.15, 30 mins @ 6.55, 30 mins @ 6.40, 30 mins @ 6.25, 15 mins @ 7.15. 20 miles done on the button and double helping of beef stew for dinner. WIN

although windy, the sun came out for the entire session!

Nice run Bus. Hopefully that mileage is a sign the injury woes are behind you

Don't know how i missed Dean's post. Nice to see he is human afterall 

Jealous of the places you get to run PMJ. Japan is on my to do list though. The place looks mental.

Right. Wife is about to wake after her night shift last night so id best get ready to get out for an 18 miler or so.

bloody hell Rob. Youre a machine

Well done on the county vest Dachs. Well deserved mate

Great racing yesterday too Matt. Your experience in fell running would always put you in the XC mixer

The difference a few miles makes CC. Snow where you are whilst i did my 5k session on Friday topless! I shit you not!

if the 82 in your name references your birth year CC, then i'm not surprised you don't remember.

However half the thread may not remember it as they were of drinking age when it was on

it was pretty obvious!

nice 10 miler on the track for me today with 6x 1k (90) in the middle. Did 5x 1k (90) just before Christmas and averaged 3.22 per km. Today, with an extra rep, averaged 3.16 per km. Love seeing improvements

It's no secret I coach CC82. He's one of about 8 people I currently coach as well as being lead coach at my club.

CC does run his easy runs too fast... currently. But I'm not bothered. Our target was always to set some decent PBs over the summer which we did. Then came his holidays, an operation  and then a lay off due to illness. So with all that and marathon training on the horizon, we've sat back for the last couple of months and just built a good foundation.

Without lots of fatigue and big sessions in his legs, understandably his running looks real pretty. It just shows me though that he's in a good place for the hard work to start. It'll soon settle back where it should be
