My training tends to be c 8m/m or even slower, and I'm only up to 70mpw.  At the moment I'm more like 7.40-7.55 because I'm on light mileage (50 mpw).  So to me your training sounds fast.  My first mile can be as slow as 8.45 or 9, although it is uphill for the second half!

Badbark: you are a machine!

Bike It: commiserations and congratulations. Commiserations because I know you had set your sights much higher and you were so unlucky at the last minute. Congratulations because you still achieved a great result in circumstances where many would have DNF'D. So much mental strength.

Well done, Coro. Amazing debut and huge congratulations on the record.

Hats off to LMH, too. Great pb. And you train fast!

Easy weekend for me but did 8 hours' walking nr Buttermere on Sunday. Beautiful! Need to pop out for a recovery jog soon.

Everything crossed for you, BikeIt.

Nothing exciting this end: yesterday was a rest day!

Nice 5Ks from PMJ and Leslie.

3000m for me on Tuesday at local open meet.  10.50.3 was a 17s improvement on my league outing a few weeks back,but more importantly I didn't pace it like a twat, so this time my lap splits were all within about a second of each other, whereas last time they went from a fastest of about 82s to a slowest of about 92s.  Sadly the fastest one was first.  This time: evenly paced and felt strong throughout.  Hurrah!

Respect on the mileage, LMH.

Open track meet on Tuesday and did the 3,000m in remarkably cool conditions.  Pleased to run 17s faster than last time (10.50.3 this time around) and lap splits were all within about 1s of each other, so pace judgement was much better than last time, where I think my splits were anything from 82-92s!  Fingers crossed I can get under 10.45 next time (pb is 10.46, plus 15s barriers are quite tempting in short track races).

Greetings, thread.  I spent most of the weekend playing the violin (3 hours Friday, 3 hours rehearsal + 2 hour concert Saturday, 3 hours Sunday) but squeezed in 10 miles with a parkrun pb on Saturday and then 15 miles on Sunday to bring up a huge 50 miles for the week.  Knee seems to be behaving more or less.

Nice track running from PadamsPP and SC.  Nice hills from SL and nice marathon from DanA in less than ideal conditions.

Fabulous report, Gul - ran every painful step with you as I read through!  Chapeau, etc.  Enjoy your holiday, safe in the knowledge you have a new and well-deserved PB

Parkrun for me yesterday and rectified equalling my course best last week with a new course best by 9s: 19.43.  Now I need to get sub 19.30 on the Hill.

Nice racing, Leslie.

Badbark: rather you than me!

JT: physio said it will take 6-8 weeks to get the glute in fairly good shape, but I was pretty much pain free within a few days, and so allowed back to light mileage.  Now that I've had a couple of weeks of pain free running with two short races I'm going to re-introduce light speedwork and then take it from there.
