I hope you are ok Poacher. I can't imagine how scary that was. Roads are generally safe - it's just the idiot drivers out there who don;t care that make it dangerous.

A very decent paced 17 miler there G-Dawg.

Good to see you knocking out a 17 miler too Birch.

17 miles must be in the air this weekend as I did a 17 XC run on Sunday morning and my legs are reminding me about all of today!

Nice hear from you Badbark and congrats on wearing the N. I. vest too. Marathon training definitely sets you up to run decent times in smaller distance races. I think it's a combination of the training and not sweating too much about the smaller distances?

Good speed sessions G-Dawg enjoy your 17 miler.

That's a lot to fit in before 7am Gul

Gul - 15 miles IS a long run

Looks like you have adapted well Leslie to the family/running balance. I think I may have to go the early run route as well soon, but I usually have some freelance work to do in the evenings which keeps me up later than I'd like.

5 easy mile recovery run last night as my eldest did football training.

Amsterdam is good marathon GM although I have only done the half marathon there. You have some good shorter distance PB's and am sure a low 3.0x is more than capable for you. A big city mara might be just the job as there will be plenty others running at the same pace to drag you round. 
There are 2 Parkruns in Leicester and my nearest one is only a 1.6 mile jog away. It is however 3 laps and there a few sharp turns in each lap which does upset the flow of pace I think. I"ve not broke 19 minutes for that one yet.

Nice negative split early long run Gul. Out of interest, what time do you usually go to bed?

Good early morning 10 miler there too Leslie - impressive av pace swell. I'm seeing those early morning runs as a window of opportunity as both you & Gul manage it quite well. It's making me wonder if I can adapt to that too to fit in a bit more running that does't effect family time?

10.5 miles tonight with a Club run of 7.3 miles av pace of 6.54. This was helped by another pacy mile around 5.3x.

Really pleased you made it GM and bagged an impressive sub 90 time!

Some good long runs being bagged this weekend. I like the underestimated 21 miler Lorenzo.

A hilly 12 for me yesterday morning and a 19.15 Parkrun on Saturday.

You're putting in some great training runs Leslie, what's your target at the moment?

GM - I reckon the Half might not be a good idea to run fat out if your hammy is giving you grief - it might make it worse? Doesn't look like the stars are aligned for this one with the imminent bad weather and potential childcare woes? Good luck if you can still make it though.

Some good yearly totals being posted already with 1 month still to go!

Nice 16 miler there Gul.

Glad the tooth is on the mend 00 - worst kind of pain that. Best of luck for your 10 miler - 63 minutes is a good target.

Only been out twice this week, with a 10 miler on Tuesday at the Club including a 5.36 mile along a nice flat stretch of road.


Good luck to any parkrunners or racers this weekend.

I think I was averaging about 40-45 miles a week before the half marathon a few weeks ago Gul. Long runs are in the 12 - 14 mile range. Certainly not as much you and Leslie

Shame the park run didn't go to plan GM, still a decent time. Crikey, that's a very fast 13 year old! It's good you run the HM course to familiarise yourself with the route, weather still sounds bad. Hope it clears up for next week.

Impressive XC time & splits G-Dawg and Club counter too.

Good weekly mileage Gul and you too Leslie.

Hopeyiur ankle is OK Lorenzo, XC should heal it

Your oversleeping is an early start to most Gul, nice 12 miler.

Nicely paced 25  miler Leslie.

Cheshire 10k this morning in very soggy conditions. Start was delayed 19 minutes and busy as the first 300m wasd on a stoney track with big puddles. Course was great along totally closed country lanes. There were a few mild undulations, but on the whole flat. First mile was OK in 6.18 trying to catch up from the busy start. I thought I'd overcooked it as the 2nd mile was 6.11, but felt OK. I was averaging about 6.18 pace. Managed to hang on for a bit a burst at the finish to come home in 38.46. Chuffed with that as it's my quickest time in 4 years

Good luck to all the XC and runner's this weekend.

Yes sad news indeed about the young girls being killed.

Enjoy your Parisian anniversary 00

A good paced rep session there GM, looks like you've still got the pace in your legs. When and where is your HM - Jersey? I'm hoping to average about 6.20 pace tomorrow, but will see how the rain affects the conditions. Looks like it will be very wet.

Impressive track session and cheeky 5 miler ther G-Dawg. You need to enter a road race to make good use of it!

Nice stretch of running BIrch!
