AA- ouch ouch ouch. Rest now and don't worry about any more long runs, the training is done. Well done on the 10k, great time on a hilly course (in my books anyway)

Chick- when are you off? Are there any internet stalking options? I'm sure you'll be fine. Watch those first few miles though!

Feels like thing are going very well at the moment, seem to be picking up the speed on all runs and especially my 20 milers have been quite swift and strong but I guess the GER next Sunday will tell if it really is going well or if I'm just being optimistic. Anyway... confidence levels are up which can't be a bad thing.

2Old- storming HM from you. Very impressive.

Chick- people can be so inconsiderate getting sick when you're trying to taper... hate it! Hang in there, not long to go now.

AA- get that 16m in!

San Sebastian will be number 9 for me in five years of running.

Things are looking up here, had a couple of 'holy shit' runs in the last couple of weeks so hoping for a good half on 11th October. Threshold intervals done yesterday and 5m easy planned for later today.

Easy 7m into work this morning for me, rest tomorrow and 20 planned for Sunday.

2Old- I really don't think it's the ultra still in my legs. It always takes me this long to get my speed back. I've never managed get to my pb shape on 10k/ half mara at this stage of marathon run up. It tends to pick up around now, usually in combination with the weather cooling down and I can definitely feel things have been improving so feeling positive. Doing San Sebastian at the end of November, so lots more training to be done!

9m steady for me today and gearing myself for intervals tomorrow.

2Old- hope the hip is ok. Great effort on the Tri.

Welcome back Chick! 22 post hols was always going to be ouch!

AA and Barry- was great to see you both on Sunday and meet Barry at last! Great running from both of you.

Maidenhead went ok for me 1:35:30. Was hoping for closer to 1:34 but based on my last couple of hopeless 10ks it's definitely an improvement. It's probably the fastest I've run a half at this stage of mara prep so all in all happy with that. Feels like things are picking up which is normal for me at this time of year.

Barry- I wish I could crank out 1 mile rep at this pace!

AA- awesome result, congrats. Not far off that podium!

Puke inducing intervals done this morning on a treadmill, bit of a tempo to do tomorrow and then easy until Maidenhead.

Barry- congrats, fantastic result!

Chick- well done on getting those reps d&d. Your holiday sounds fab.

AA- Hope the long run went well. Some nice speedy threshold miles there as well, you will nail it at Maidenhead. Cycling along the canal with lots of pubs involved... sounds like a great tri prep!

2Old- hope it settles. Good mileage there as well.

My 10k was rather shit. Ran 45:20. Giving myself a bit of slack as it was just past Spitfire so tired legs and also full of antibiotics. Probably wasn't a good idea to run it but hey, it's all good training I guess.

Some horrid 5k-3k paced intervals completed last night on a treadmill and now off for 6m easy.

Hi Free- good to see you here. Enjoy your hols and don't let Pauline make you do any crazy fell races!

AA- good luck with the swim today, I'm sure you will be fab.

Barry- damn you're fast. What are you aiming for in Maindenhead?

Nice pace on your 11 miler 2Old.

Yes, the Spitfire was lots of fun and very happy with the win. We didn't just beat all mixed teams in our category but all male teams as well by quite a distance. Into proper marathon training now starting with a 10k race tonight- eeeek!

Chick- threshold stuff is meant to be hard!

Barry- super jealous of those fast splits!

Was supposed to be doing some vomit inducing session today of threshold running combined with 3k paced reps but decided that since it's my birthday I'll swap it with tomorrow's six easy... which will be done after work and before birthday dinner.

AA- yes, it's a shame you couldn't make it.

Chick- 10m @ MP in isolation is a hard session, especially going straight into it like this first thing in the morning. If you managed to knock it out at this pace I wouldn't think sub 3.30 should be a problem!
