Things you want to say but can't

Don't pressure me.  I wouldn't do it to you.  Feels like I've gone back to work already and it's still Sunday, and you are meant to be my friend.

Morning folks. Going to get blown round the Yorkshire wolds half this morning. I don't have a plan for the race at all, and it's definitely not a on course, so we'll see what happens!

Overdone it?

Yorkshire Wolds half this morning. It's, as lit put it, fecking windy, and I don't have a plan.

Wow, that's pretty incredible Bob!  Impressive chunk off the PB there.  Well done!

I basically had to read the last page three times to get any sense out of it.  Well played, everyone.  

Good pace-hitting there DT, you're getting good at dialling into the right pace by the sound of it.

Lit, Lou and McF, I'm pleased you had a nice time, but CHIPS AND GRAVY IS WRONG!!! And so is gravy and cheese. 

Charlie, sounds promising that you are not battered after the weekend Hope the next one goes to plan too.

I quite enjoyed my track session last night - 4 x 400, 2 x 800, 1 x mile.  Our super-amazing fast runner sorted it out like a bit of a handicap race so set us off one or two at a time so we could chase each other down.  I almost held him off on the second 800, but apart from that was basically doomed.  I also forgot my watch, so felt naked and don't know what any of my splits are, apart from the mile because I reset the Strava app before doing that one so I would have a time!  It came out at 6:14, but I don't believe the Strava app, so resetting it was a little pointless really! Average for the session came out about where I'd have expected for speedwork so must have been ok-ish at least.  Must not forget watch next time!

Took me so long to get that joke McF.  Innocent, you see  Glad to hear you're getting there with the running, sounds mildly frustrating but ultimately positive.

Mace, DT and Tommy, great racing.  

Bob, how are you doing now?  I read back and picked up that you were benched for a bit, but couldn't work out if it was a long term thing or if you're just backing off a bit.

Track training for me tonight for about the first time ever.  The super-fast runner in our club (2:38 at VMLM this year) is offering to help us with some speed work, so a few of us are meeting to smash up the track.  Should be a giggle.

Which marathon is it Alan?  I just ran a hilly marathon a LOT slower than my flat marathon PB, but probably could have gone quicker if I'd wanted to... Hard to judge what pace to set out at when you're not used to the terrain.

Good luck Ferg.  Keep hydrated and do what you feel comfortable with on the day.

KR, I hear what you're saying about the HMP at the end of long runs, but there's so much quality in there already that I think adding more at the end of a long run (most of which are pretty long for a half plan) would result in being broken very quickly.  

I have run twice this week and feel fine, apart from a slightly sore foot.  A few of us went to recce a 10K route that we're helping to organise in the forest last night, and met the local fell running club.  I'm really tempted to go along and join them sometime for a run.  They sounded mental but fun.  Scared of being too slow though...
