How do Gang, Seems you've all been doing rather well recently. Well done particularly to Ram, MM MB Egg and Deb.

I take beet shots - I wouldnt take one the same day as a race though.

Been a stess fest here recently but it seems legs are coming back to me - Back to base building for a couple of weeks and hopefully get some races in soon. Its getting to the sharp end of things for many on here now..

I am Fat.

Madbee - Have been thinking about odd shoes but cant believe that they wont be totally out of kilter and put your biomechanics more out of shape and result in more injuries. Am looking at buying neutrals with an insoles for the overpronating foot instead, but am still just looking into it at the moment.

Madbee - nice 10 and LSR - you are on it aren't you

Ram - good luck with the MP stuff

Kev - race pace for the distance is correct.7

Scott - nice to read the 20s are feeling good - bodes well.

Back to consultant yesterday and had other Achilles stripped  - This one hasn't had the instant impact the other one had and is now bloody sore. Hopefully the running gods will see that ive been a sensible boy for once and let me get back at it (albeit slowly) next weekend

Get it right westy and then get back on it.

Macca - Not a chance would I do that.

Off to see consultant on Friday and see how I go from there. I need to get back at it - I am eating like a horse and drinking like a fish.

SRS - I think following the plan your shorter times tumble - you will be grand. I wouldn't advocate adding any additional tough sessions

Madbee -

Good LT there Andrews, but I expect nothing else from you sir.

LT should be time really to be equal to all I would imagine.

I am falling out of love with P&D - I just end up getting injured. Of course, it could just be that I am old and frail and I would break on any programme, but a 7 mile LT a few days before a 20m + lsr strikes me as an open invitation for injury.

Sausage - off road running helps with shin splints - as does correct shoes.

Madbee and JR - nice sessions guys.

Am rapidly being forced to admit defeat on the Nice-Cannes jaunt - fortunately took out insurance so can get the monies back. M thinking is that whilst I have no niggles early on in the day, I get Achilles pain around tea time and when I run on it it hurts the day after - so I am not fully fit still - I have no base and the gun is 12 weeks Sunday so which ever way I look at it the race is compromised and I may just compound my injuries.

Am now looking at halfs this year and then give Wrexham/London quite a rattle next year.

Didn't run last night. Leg was sore and I had Doms - can you believe it? DOMS from a 4 m recovery run. Its gonna be a long way back to fitness for me. Pilates tonight - might run there as my schizophrenic leg feels ok today.

Keep on keepin on gang.
