NP great park run pal, some serious speed sir

Tri thats sounds hard going but great for getting it done

NN hope the race goes well, sure you will go well after all the recent quick stuff.

Tek well done on the short run.

4 m easy yesterday making it 46 for the week which was hard enough post RTS.

8.5 m tonight, 1 m warm up then 7 m tempo @ 6.52 follwed 0.5 m warm down. That bloody hurt but a good fitness indictor of where I am right now which is quite encouraging as its faster than previous runs over the same course in the last two campaigns.

Tek well done on the 7 m just keep taking the tablets

SM that sounds a right pain, maybe a little rest needed but I am sure you want to just get out there!

NN great job done on the park run PB, the short stuff is going really well for you my next race is Jersey marathon in early October, one of my favourites.

Forgot to add earlier that finally got GFA confirmed for VLM next year , will be another family affair with bro and Nephew also getting theirs - NP hope you decide to run it again.

Welcome Claire, missing one long run wont hurt , just keep up the running whilst away. Maybe get a LR in the day before you go and then pick it up as soon as you get back.

SM whats the problem?


14 m @ 7.58 this morning, legs took a few miles to get going but happy enough post 2 weeks RTS.

NP good training as usual, looks like the pup had a good run too.

Tek glad to hear its nothing to major, could have been worse I guess.

NN well done with the off road run, nothing like getting off the tarmac for a change.

OH thats good news that the stone has been smashed! Hope you can get back out soon enough now.


16 m this week so far at 7.45 , all good ,hopefully build up to around 40 m this week, then looking to build up ready to start a relitvaly short traing schedule for Jersey.

Tri enjoy the party, nice 16 k

Tek that looks good, well done.

OH must keep going on the swim and short runs, must be frustrating.

SM a good batch and run recently, good tempo work this morning, pretty windy out there so must make a difference


10 m @ 7.18 this morning , legs felt good so decided to push and get some potential speed work in. Tough going in the second half back into the wind but all good considering.

NN good run yesterday and hopefully its been a good race tonight , Jersey is the first weekend in October, so a few weeks to recover and a short programme of training.

MG7 nice mix of training and good that the shins are behaving.

Tek well done on the club outing in the woods.

5 m for me tonght @ 8 min / miles , bit quicker than anticipated which was a pleasant surprise.

Race to the Stones 2015

Well done all, managed it 14:12 which I was really pleased about as it was my first Ultra, having Bro and Nephew to run with certainly helped mentally at times. Would echo what everyone else has said re organisation and support. The course was far more hilly than I expected but seemed to have survived fairly unscathed as far as legs and feet are concerned, the Drymax socks I used were fab and well worth the money. Back to autumn marathon training for me now.
