Great running sk, well done on 1st Lady. 

mamafox - re Chapel - decided not to in the end, would love to have done it but far too many things unknown to go wrong. Was a really nice building in a great location. Maybe revisit something similar in a few years time. We've decided to stick with local properties for now.

Well done on the race, that damn Jocelyn! 

I wouldn't do any speedwork Big_g, easy to give advice though  

Did a nice 9 miler last night & decided for the last quarter mile of each mile I'd up the pace which was fun as I've been just easy running. Quite enjoyed it.

I follow his blog and love the way he is completely open about all his training. Try looking up Mo's training paces etc ! ,he's on Fetch and it just amazes me how many miles he racks up. Good luck to him in Glasgow.

That's great big_g, not a too shabby time for taking it vary easy either. Hopefully no flare ups in the next few days.

sk ,that sounds a good week of races you're doing. 1st in all of them so Far as well. I did a 10k on sand a couple of years ago and just wore normal trainers, was quite hard sand with the odd soft bit. Bare feet probably good on soft stuff.

Iain - good luck with the diet, I keep meaning to go for an mot at the docs, haven't been for years.

slowly getting back into a more normal routine now, 31 miles last week & 32 this week. Really nice 13 this morning to go pick up the car after a wedding last night. 

Need to sort out a tdf plan for next weekend, British Grand Prix as well as the tennis & World Cup.  Sport overload, the wife isn't the best impressed with it all.

Coloured zip ties on lamp posts maybe sk?  

Woke up just before 5 this morning and was wide awake so decided to head out. I had  planned to run anyway as I had to go pick up the car from last night...about 6 miles away by the shortest route. Ended up doing a nice easy 14 and back home for 8.

I've not run that early in a long time and forgotten how wonderfully peaceful and deserted it is.

Velcro strap is much better Shades, I'd been eyeing the velcro one up for a while and when my original one broke that's when I changed. Wished I'd have done it ages ago. Much more comfy. When your not wearing it just loop it back on itself as if you're wearing it so it doesn't get twisted & also stops it picking up any muck.

Trying to do min of 100 miles a month, managed all so far but only on 49 for June so will be tight this month but think I'll get there.

I'm starting to dislike Jocelyn as well ,good report there mamafox and sounds a good run.

mowzer - At least nothing broken, bruises will soon go and at least if you're going to fall over then right at the end is preferred to the start. Healing vibes.

Shades - Just epic, well done, shame about your stomach issues but 70km is a cracking effort.

sk - So was it a pb ? well done if so.

So Friday's run didn't happen either, got out of work on time but motorway was closed due to an accident, so as I only had an hour spare that was gone sitting in traffic.

Saturday morning I just felt rubbish, think i've had a virus or something for last couple of weeks, just not feeling quite right etc. So finally got out last night and did 9 very easy enjoyable miles. Calfs are a little tight today, but heading out for 5 or 6 tonight.

Just under 16 weeks to Chester now need to get back on it.

Tough decision to make Big_G...are you doing runs at the moment ? 

Run didn't go quite as planned last night, looking forward to it all day so parked up ready for a nice offroad 6-7 miler & then after getting all changed I realised I had brought two left shoes! bugger. Must buy a different colour if choosing the same shoes  

Once home there was no chance of getting out again. Will try again this afternoon but only time for 3-4 miles. Along the River Dee, so will be nice enough.

Happy Birthday Lilly.

Good luck with the 100k Shades, hope it all goes well for you. 

Always takes my legs 3-4 weeks to get back to 'normal' after a marathon, can still run ok but just feel a bit lacking in power/empty.

Mollington is a nice little village Iain, the Marathon route goes out that way at the start. Not sure how old your kids are but the Zoo is very good. 

If anyone want any tips/general info about Chester then let me know, my kids live there and I'm 20mins away so know it pretty well.

Edit - It's the Half that goes out past Mollington, the Full doesn't go that way

Ah yes I remember you saying now ,my brother has done the road one quite a few times. 

I know the event, quite a tough one, a cyclocross bike probably perfect for it.
