Tek nice easy 4

Cal must be frustrating to say the least, still you must be pleased.

OH great weeks running from you, shame about the 3:1 defeat.

Yellow nice new PB then on the cards

Stewart hope the 10 has been a good one.

Sub 17 whats your theory on running full marathons in training ? what sort of weekly distance are looking to do in your marathon training?

Nice 6 m here in the sun earlier.

NP excellent park run, summer starts on Monday ????

Ollie all that coffee sounds good.

Yellow nice going on the few easy miles.

2 m warm up then 18.53 park run, bit windy out there but didnt have the pace to threaten a PB. Finished with steady 6 m. Out for a few miles tomorrow morning .

OH well done sir on the racing this week, sounds like a good all crack!

DD next time you will crack the 20 and get that PB.

NP nice mix of training as normal

SM good work on the 6, when the next race ?

Cal hope all goes well on the weekend.

MG7 have a good one on sunday.

Yellow hope the knee is okay and just a little niggle.


NN you will be fine, your form is going from strength to strength right now.

Stewart still a good session, no easy way of running the reps I guess.

Park run tomorrow with some miles bolted onto the end, want to keep a little endurance as it wont be long before autumn training starts

Quick catch up for me too, been taking it steady this week following sundays race but decided to go along to the Thursday night group session to build some speed which is all rep based, looking to build this into my training for the summer .
Tonights session was 8 x 600 with 90 sec recovery between each, knew that it would be tough and I wasn't disappointed.Total distance was 3 m @5:51 per mile.

OH well done on your PB and getting the win against Elspeth

Tek miles buolding up again nicely.

Stewart having done that race yesterday I think hills will make a difference to fitness levels if done regularly but will take a little longer to recover from.

Had a great day competing in the Hilly 100 team race yesterday, our team of 10 came 4th / 37 teams in a respectible time of 11 hr 1 min for our 100 miles. Personally went quite well covering my 9.4 m in 1:04:32 at 6:42 av. Happy with my time and run and glad that I did my bit for the team .
Have to say the last five miles were pretty painful and hard work but really satisfying to run and then pass the baton on to the next team mate.
Hills and undulations were everywhere so really gave the legs and lungs a massive workout.
Really enjoyed the team format running with a great group of guys including some seriously talented guys who worked for each other in water stops and navigating along the country route. After a long day a nice few beers were consumed.

NP hope the car nightmares are sorted, nice quick parkrun today?

Ollie great time at the parkrun, sure there will be more to come.

Cal super PB

Tri thats a long run to do so soon, hope the legs are okay.



Nice and easy today down to and round the Park Run, another bumper turnout at over 800 today. Resting up for the relay race tomorrow in the Cotswolds. On leg 5 which is fairly flat so looking for a time of 1:04 - 1:05 for my 10 miles . Race starts at 7am so going to be a long day. NP race goes out into the Cotswolds with separate legs each so a bit of logistical challenge getting runners to the start and end of each leg.

Stewart good running yesterday.

NN nice speed session and swim, those reps are certainly paying off

OH nothing wrong with a nice garish colour.

Tek good to get it done , not easy in the conditions.

SM well done for getting through it, still 11 good miles.


7 m earlier in the heat and wind , bugs out in force as well , 5 or 6 m sub 7 min miles so was tough going. unfortunately Garmin lost the run during download plus all the other run history appart from the weekly distance totals which is annoying.

Now Looking forward to the team relay race on sunday, Cotswold Hilly 100. Team of 10 running 10 miles each.

Tri hope that recovery is going well.

Stewart good run in the conditions, at least its warming up with you.

NP excellent pace on the tempo !

DD still a great time given the heat.

Ollie nice little 3 miler.

Cal keep the speed work up, you will see the benefit soon enough.

Tek well done on the 9 m lunch run.

9m last night with 8 m at a good pace which wasnt too much fun in the heat but wont do any harm given the good bit of fluid replacement work afterwards

4 m easy in a short while followed by 1 hr PT session.

8 m in total today including park run , super turnout with 1016 runners , fortunatly at the front of the starting pack to get round in 18:32 and a PB by 25 secs

Have quickly learned that there is no easy way of running 5 k !
