I don't think a month is really enough to judge a training schedule by: it takes a couple of weeks to get the benefits of sessions through stress adaptation so how you get on in the half will tell you more about the training you did before that block!

Leslie: dammit. That's not great news. Hope the physio is being overly pessimistic.

Nice parkrun again, OO.

Hope you recover quickly from the op, GO.

Welcome back, Gul.

20 for me to round off the week. Paces for LSRs gradually improving: last 3 have been 8.27, 8.17 and 8.05. Phew!

Welcome back, TR.

Congrats on the 50th park run, Wardi. At my current rate I'll be v40 before I get mine!

20 miles for me to round off 67 for the week. Pace of the LSRs gradually improving: last 3 have been 8.27, 8.17 and 8.05.

Well done, Lit - you've not wasted any time in getting back to prize-winning ways!

Sounds like a tough course, GM, so bodes very well for a flat race.

Dull double for me yesterday: 4M + 6M.

Dachs: I improved my 10k pb from 38.51 to 38.29 last month and improved my HM pb by 3 mins last year, so I do 'big' improvements occasionally

Big congratulations to Marders and Marigold on their 100k selections: not a bad day for the thread.

Definitely have a hankering for Boston, Chicago and New York, so I'd better start saving up for them!

Padams: there are 4 beforehand which show me starting the process of stopping the Garmin (so to speak).

Sorry to hear you had a tough race, SL - I'm guessing that was the Towpath?  Hope nothing too seriously wrong, but wise to get checked out just in case.

Congrats on the BMAF Silver, Phil.  Hope you enjoyed your time on the podium!

Great race report, Al - who knew that ultras could almost come down to sprint finishes?!

Bains: track racing can be a bit like that because there are so few people in each race. I think it's the biggest adjustment to make from road racing.  Given the weather over the weekend I wouldn't be so quick to assume it was a disaster, if I were you.

Tmoth: hope your mojo has returned safe and well!

Padams: glad the test run went well and that your return to training goes smoothly.

Thought I'd just share what is quite possibly the best finish line photo I've ever had:

Nice parkrun and 50K, Al.  Bit cheeky of our resident 'sleb to rock up and deny you a win, however!  Any decent bling?

ON7: yes, CH is a clubmate (I can therefore say with some certainty I will never better my club's women's marathon record!). She's some way short of full fitness at present but still very good. Well done on the result, especially in light of the conditions.  I was glad I was racing yesterday rather than today given the weather today.
