O4S- it's 'only' 4500m of ascent, it's a bit misleading how they put it on their website.

AA- threshold runs are the worst. Well done!

Chick- 6m @ HMP sounds eeek!

10k/ 5k paced intervals done on a treadmill this morning- ouch. Going back now for some S&C.

Chick- nice 1k reps!

Barry- very nice steady pace indeed!

AA- you've been busy! Still doing your intervals on a treadmill?

Hill intervals went ok, was supposed to do 7m easy today and rest tomorrow but felt sleep deprived and knackered this morning so taking my rest day today instead. So 7m easy planned for tomorrow and 16 steady on Sunday.

2Old- where are you holidaying? Beach running is hard core, I remember attempting in in Thailand and it completely knackered me after a mile or so.

O4S- living in a fast lane as always I see.

AA- nice 20 miler. Are you following a schedule this time?

An hour of S&C in the gym for me this morning and will go back after work for some vomit inducing hill reps.

Hi Free- welcome back!

AA- by training you don't mean running every day for a month???

9 miles steady done this morning into work averaging 7.40mm.

AA- I've done it twice. It's a good flat course although for some reason I never ran well there... hopefully will put it right this time. I think I was meant to meet up with Barry there a couple of years ago but we never found each other.

Chick- nice 11 miler against the elements.

Battersea Park 5k done last night in 21:17 which is bang on my pb so very happy with that. The splits were 6:45, 6:47, 7:00 and the last bit at 6:38 so a bit of a fade n the last mile but not too bad. Next stop 10k also at Battersea Park on 8th August.

Chick- yes, it does look a tad hilly but I mean how hard can it be? Which mara is it you're doing? Not sure about my ultra talents translating into fast anything... but hey I'm not giving up!

AA- yes, doing Maidenhead, will be good to catch up. Amsterdam is great, I would love to do it again sometime. Nice lake swimming pb!

Barry- busy week for you and I can see on strava there was some bricking happening yesterday as well.

Steady 15m for me on Saturday which went quite well and 3m recovery yesterday before Battersea Park 5k tonight. Sigh. At least it will be over before I know it... or so I'm telling myself.

Hi everyone!  Quiet at work today so will try to catch up on everyone's exploits properly.

AA- nice 20! Sounds like you've had a busy week. What are you training for at the moment?

Chick- monster mileage queen

Barry- awesome effort on the Tri! You've definitely crossed to the dark side...

2Old- 7.10mm barefoot on the beach...that's good going!

O4S- You are simply amazing... dealing with all this and powering through but it's obviously what we all came to expect from you.

Things getting back to normal here post Comrades. Took me a few weeks to get the legs turning at anything faster than MP but seem to be getting back to it now. Entered San Seb mara in November and will try to get my 10k/ half mara time down to something decent in the next couple of months. If it doesn't work I swear I'm giving up and switching to ultras for good!

Other than that have also entered Transvulcania Ultra (May next year) and they've accepted Exmoor CTS mara as a qualifier so I guess I'm in! It's been on my bucket list for a couple of years. It looks rather insane on paper but also amazing and I'm sooo excited!

Hi guys. Just a quick update, Internet access is very patchy! Will catch up properly when I'm back.
Had an absolute blast on Sunday. Managed to sneak under 9h with 8:54:06. Ran the last 30k with the sub 9h bus and it was the most fun experience ever. Very very pleased with Bill Rowan and will be back for the down for sure. Would recommend the race to anyone- the atmosphere and organisation were outstanding.
The legs are shot but recovering quickly. Off to stay with the in laws tomorrow and back in the UK on 14th June.

Free- storming YKW, sub 20 surely on the horizon!

Chick- nice back to back there!

AA- 70 lengths.. jeez... impressive!

Nell- speedy intervals... I like the excuse on the last two! Glad to hear you're feeling good!

Barry- hope things are on the mend.

2Old- nice 20 miler!

I did my last hard core interval session yesterday and it's officially tapeeeeeeeer time! It feels ridiculously close now and I'm beyond excited. Flying out on 28th (next Thursday). Feeling good. The training has all gone to plan, I feel I'm in the best shape and the lightest I've ever been...can't ask for more. The rest is in comrades gods' hands.
