SM nice long run and a good weeks mileage, well done
Stewart congrats on the cricket win
NN thats a great achievment by your son, you should be proud as punch

9m @ 7.48 progressive done earlier, nice to run in some cooler conditions compared to the Thai heat, happy with the first run back.

Stuart for me all those PB type runs close together looks a tough schedule , I can only go on my limited experience from last october when I PB my marathon then two weeks later took 6 mins of my half PB , both were down to training going well the previous eight weeks and good recovery I guess.

Perhaps it will come down to how you are feeling at he beginning of september and deciding then.

NN nice run , good luck to your son

SM sounds a good move to have a refreshing swim

Fiona nice speedy work, its always a battle for me too to control the chocolate intake when doing the miles. Needs to be banned from our house

Stewart good swim and run, hope the temperature drops for when I get back


Nice steady 8 m late afternoon, final holiday run done. Have enjoyed most of them, not sure you can ever get acclaimatised to these tropical conditions, anyway last day here in lovely Thailand before our journey back tomorrow night,

SM good speedy intervals, keep it going.

NP good swimming, biking and pup running

Stewart nice 4 yesterday, hope it all goes well today with the group run.

Fiona well done on the intervals on the dreadmill, , never easy to run at speed on those machines, I hope you are right re when i get back.


6 m easy earlier, cut speed back to 8.50 average but still drenched when I got back to our hut. Run felt quite enjoyable today in the conditions, really nice to see the local way of life out here and how happy they are compared the locals back home !

NP nice work, great to have you back out again

Stewart sounds an enjoyable one , hope the injury is ok.

OH nice 3.5, nothing like a bit of variety

Innex good to see things went well yesterday

Fiona sounds like a pleasant run much nicer than hills for sure


6 m very tough miles - went out 5 pm local time but it was still 28oc with 84% humidity but at least it was cloudy. Took a new route from where we are staying that included two very steep long hills which hurt like hell, also ventured off road for a while as the road turned into a sort of forest trail which was different.

Lost 2 kg whilst out there so time to rehydrate now and try and not too much Chang, Only a few more days to go until a return to normal service.

Stewart good to hear that things are improving.

Fiona sounds like you had a fun trip down to the big smoke, got everything crossed that I might get a ballot place for VLM but I am sure my hopes will be dashed again!

SM keep it going pal.

NN super club running

10 m @ 8.22 , a cloudy, warm , humid , rainy day here so took a chance and went out at midday whilst it was still raining to make the most of the cloud cover.
The Tropical rain kept me from getting very hot - just pretty warm but trainers and socks were soaked after a few miles and not suprisingly developed a nice blister on my heel and it was also like running in ankle weights but all good stuff

9 tough tropical miles at 8.22 , went out late afternoon to make the most of some cloud cover but still was hot and humid.

NN a great run in the conditions , ice cream sounds good to me after the run, I am on a Thai island near Phuket, lovely place, lovely people.
SM a good couple of runs in the heat, good luck with the parkrun.


9 m late this afternoon in the normal Thai greenhouse conditions, bloody Garmin decided to mess about after .6 so ran to feel for the rest, nice route into the local village and back which we did yesterday on some bikes so knew the distance which was handy.

Decided to weigh myself before and after the run, was amazed to find I had lost 3 kg , some serious rehydration required, will try and keep the Chang beer variety to a minimum;)

NP great to hear that you are almost back
Stewart nice little run considering your also on the road back.
Mikey good 10 k I would take your gear on holiday and get a couple of runs done early or later in the day, if really warm just cut the pace back and be well hydrated before you set off .
NN sounds like a good couple of runs done with a nice bit of pace.

5 m ..@ 8.19 this afternoon normal hot and humid conditions, went out steady then picked up the pace with the last mile @ 7.42 which made me blow. Hopefully there will b some benefit to this tropical running lark
