all good cheers Bus. Foot seems fully recovered and after a cautious week, my gait seems to be back to normal too. Should be up to 21 miles this week.

Sorry to hear you're still suffering. As others have said, I wouldn't run if I were you. Can you get access to a cross trainer? I found it a great way of keeping fit when i had that groin/abductor injury earlier in the year.

did someone say rebuilding?

11 miles last week. 16 this week. BOOOOOOOOM!

Well done on the PB Lit. Must be a quick course - everyone I know who ran it knocked minutes off their PBs.

Cabbage Patch sounds a lovely day out. I'll think of you all whilst I attempt to get myself round Amsterdam HM after not running that far since 25th May! thank God for the local postrace 'painkillers'

Dean - great reply. Last night I managed my second run this week after no running at all for 10 weeks whilst this stress fracture healed. It was part of an Inter Advertising 5km in Regents Park.

On a good day and when fit, I would have comfortably podium'd but obv not in this current shape. And do you know what - after a disastrous 2014 running wise, last night reminded me why I run. It was so much fun even if I did barely break 22 minutes. I'll be back chasing PBs again one day but for now, I'm going to Find Fun.

cheers peeps. crap year for injuries as you say Bus but i had a good run for a couple of years with back to back marathons. Can't rush recovery either so it's just a case of being patient.

Hows the injury Johnas if you're still reading?

Haha... thanks Matt. First time on here more or less in the last month so apologies for not knowing what everyone's been up to! Don't have the time to read a month's worth of posts but I did see Dachs' 5k on FB - a well deserved 15:xx. Well done mate.

as for me, I haven't really ran since the duathlon on 27 June. Not sure if it's extensor tendonitis or a stress fracture in my left foot but either way, I've been limping since then and only really been able to put weight on it since last week, as long as I'm wearing cushioned shoes. Hopping or running though are out the question and I've written of the rest of the summer. 

Still, the lack of ability to train means I've been working on my drinking ability which I must say, is going from strength to strength!

No chance of that Dean - cycling looks expensive by the look of the bikes I saw yesterday!

Most positive from yesterday is that I ran a low 34 min 10k with a 12 mile bike ride in the middle. All moving in right direction

Duathlon for me this morning so no racing for rest of weekend. 5km run / 20 km bike / 5 km run. Legs are shot now! Never done one before so not sure what to expect. Plan was to go out at 10km pace for first 5k to keep some in the tank - came in a bit quicker (although, aware distances are that accurate on tri's etc). 16.51 split

On to the bike - quick through transition as no shoes to change. 4 laps of Eton Dorney and I had a target in my mind of around 40 mins so pleased to see final split of 34.50

Next the fun bit - run off the bike! Only tried it once in practise and took me a few mins to get over the wobbly legs. Hard work mind! Final 5k in 17.27.

Home in second place in 1.10.33. My target was sub 1.15 so really pleased. New found respect for triathletes. Winner ran 1.06.xx and is training for Ironman and has quite a few under his belt so beaten by a much better athlete

Lots of great training and racing. Well done on the win Matt. 

Dachs - those are the exact sessions I did last week. I did the 3x 1mile session (off 3mins) on Tuesday (5.13; 5.07; 5.11) and then a 30 min threshold on Friday (was meant to be thursday but long day at work) where I covered just over 5 miles.

With all this talk of cycling, got my Duathlon this Friday @ Eton Dorney. Got no idea how good I'll be on the bike as never cycled 'hard' before!

Speed Endurance for 10k?

I did a very similar session a few weeks ago - 300m reps with 300m jog recoveries. Did it midweek before a road 10k but it was more tailored to a 5000m track race the week after. A good session and doing it by time means no need for you to find a track
