Back up to 15 miles again.My legs are defo feeling the benefits of running 3 or 4 days a week, supplemented with 1 or 2 days cycling.hopefully I'll continue to keep injury free as the mileage and pace increases

Orbutt:Hopefully you cover well for the rest of your schedule.Could it be something as simple as not eating enough.It does sound like you didn't have enough in the tank.Maybe the recent hot weather has taken its toll on you

Good stuff Medower.Ive always wanted to do a Tri.Im a decent runner and cyclist but I swim like a brick as they say round our way.May need to look into swimming lessons some day.

Deputy list fairy:Can you stick me down for the Great Scottish Run on October 4th please.

My running is coming along nicely.Back up to 12 miles, tho I'm struggling for pace.I was hoping for a sub 1:40 in the Glasgow half but I'm struggling whenever I pick up the pace,still 7 weeks so hopefully it'll improve.

I'm gradually building the miles too,my LSR's (9 min/miles)feel quite comfortable but as soon as I up it to 8mins/Mile or quicker my heart rate goes way too high.Just need to be patient.

Eggyh:The race has a 5pm start time,their website says "temperatures will be 18-20c,very correct temperature for running a marathon" haha.Im thinking,if I go easy on the booze on the Thursday then drink plenty of water on the Friday and Saturday I should be fine.

Nodster:Good luck with the fundraising and the brave/crazy attempt at 20 marathons.

Hi folks not been on since the start of my holiday to Florida.The running while on 'vacation' started off well,but the late nights and walking in the parks took its toll.I only managed 3 runs and never ran the last week or so.Ive given up on my plans of an autumn marathon as I'm too far off the pace.Im going to try get fit enough for the Glasgow half.

I noticed some chat about HR further up.Im similar to running rodent.My slow run HR isn't too bad but as soon as I up the pace my HR rockets.I bought the run less run faster book. I'm going to give it a go,I'm going to move around a few of the days to fit in with other things I have going on.The LSR paces seems to go against everything I've picked up in the past,seems a bit quick.

I'm hoping to go to Cancun with my wife in December,without the kids this time.Lets call it a late honeymoon/anniversary.We got married in Mexico 18 months ago and never really got time to ourselves as the kids were there.ive noticed the cancun marathon and half are on in the dates we are planning to go.Im just wondering if any of you ever drink in the days leading up to a race.The race is on the Saturday 5th December.We are planning on arriving on the Tuesday.I don't fancy staying booze free for 4 or 5 days of a 7 day holiday.There is a flight on the Wednesday but it's a bit more expensive.

Eggy:well done again on yet another PB,you are being rewarded for the hard training.

An early morning run in the Florida sunshine for me,I'll likely stick to 4-5 milers til I get back home,the heat and humidity is unbearable even a 6am.Running round Disney Port Orleans resort sure beats Kilmarnock for scenery tho.
