Stewart - I saw someone on Tuesday about foot.... Not good but dealing with it! 

Fiona - I remember that now indeed which makes me feel a bit better about my afternoons run.

so this afternoon was a planned 24 but sadly bailed out at 18. Ran x country for the first 11, a lovely costal path. It was tricky in places, very boggy in places so I walked where necessary. All felt good, but then hit the road for the rest of the run and my legs literally went to pieces. 7 miles of pure torture, run walk. boyfriend phoned to see how I was, offered me a lift home which I declined in favour of the tourture! Even with the run/walk strategy I still managed my goal pace for the ultra which I think is good. And my average HR was 65%.  So today was a total of 30 miles with a postie round sandwiched in too. Treated to a meal out by my family this evening - very nice recovery food!

Yes SM6, all part of the ultra plan.... Something in the region of 24miles this afternoon. But then I get to have active recovery tomorrow followed by full rest on Monday and I am not back at work until Wednesday!

Tek - thank you. Brain isn't functioning, average WHR for run was 67% not 75! No idea where I got that from.

Fiona : hope the quad feels a bit better thus morning. Enjoy the cycle.

NP- Sounds lovely, and ou have recovered very quickly from Sunday

SM6 - great swimming. My turn to try it soon :/

Tek - great mp running, 

HM4- shame forgetting the trainers.  

NN - hows the niggle?

Struggling to keep up, sorry if I missed something. Good luck to anyone running this weekend.

question about HR training. When running hills to you still try to keep your HR @ 70% or like I read on RW is it ok to let it drift?? This morning I let mine drift to a max of 80% but not sure if this is ok?? First run of the day done 12 slow miles! Foot feels lots better now after a couple of days being strapped. Although I know its not fully fixed.

Am I the only person that hated Amsterdam?? 

I find running on the flat really hard as its something I don't normally do. Using the same leg muscles constantly is,something I can't train for here.

I do think that route profile is all wrong!! 

I am not taking my watch with me to Inverness. Simple.

Take care of that foot Matty. Roll it on a tennis ball or something similar.

On a similar but different note, my foot is benefiting from the strapping put on yesterday. No w to see how it feels after work.
