Great running Badbark, you seem suited to this ultra running.

Nice parkrun victories for PMJ and OO. I need to get myself one of those but it's all in the timing, hoping the speed merchants don't show.

Marathon pace long run for me today with 5 easy, 14 @ mp and 1wd.
Mara pace averaged 6.44m/m pace. Not quite sub 2.55 pace but that was on the back of an 80 mile week.
Also felt a little too tough for 26 miles but there's still a few more weeks to sharpen and hopefully taper..etc will help.

I think Badbark maybe having trouble uploading a picture of his shorts.

I've had a pretty decent week of training, 10 with reps (6*1000) on Tues, 15 on Wednesday, 12 on Friday all backed up with v easy miles for the rest of the week.
20 with 14 at MP planned for tomorrow should give a reasonable expectation of race day pace. It's a tough solo run!

So, Pool running.

Are you pegging it around the kiddies pool just making a nuisance of yourself? Or are you up the deep end tredding water in a running style, looking a little bit of a berk?

Gerald- what have you done to your leg? I must have missed a page.

Poacher- I'm going to set my target for Abingdon at sub 2.55. Feel in pretty decent shape at the moment, hopefully I won't be overcooked by then.

Minni- bit of a wait which must be very frustrating.

 Slokey- Double Ouch!

6 very easy miles for me today at about 8.45 pace which is what I've been running all my recovery days at. In fact most of my mileage hasn't really crept over 8mm pace apart from the quality sessions and the P&D runs at mp +20/10%.

It was supposed to be a double today but work got in the way, which is bloody inconsiderate.

MsE- DefInitely not wearing my lycra shorts now. I've just hit the floor and am on my third set of crunches.

Hi all

Apologies for not posting but I've been keeping an eye on you all, too many to mention.

But have to say impressive swim Slokey, just back from my hols where I attempted a mile sea swim, gave up after half a mile.

Great Half time from you OO. 

Sorry to hear there's a few carrying injuries. Hope it's not too long till you're all fixed.

I've had a really consistent couple of months of marathon training and feel I'm getting into decent shape to give Abingdon a good blast.

No racing from me as I've been sticking to the p&d plan. This week I've ran 85 miles with a comfortable 24 miles this morning.

Hope my good fortune and training continues to Abingdon.

Look forward to meeting MsE and TAR at the race.

Keep up the good training people.

VTrunner- is that Hadd training you are following and do you run the marathon based on your heart rate zone?

20 miles for me this morning P&D stylee, first 15 at a nice comfortable 8-8.10 pace and the last 5 at 7.30 mm felt a lot tougher than l was expecting. I think the higher mileage is making my legs feel heavy.

Gul- I'm running Abingdon again this year and have set the target at Sub 2.55 because Sub 3 was so last year.
Great mile pace btw, enjoy your holiday.

Hi all, not posted on here for a while but have been lurking.
Some great training going on as usual.
Well done to Slokey on a magnificent Ironman? Outlaw achievement, that is something to be proud off.
Congrats to Minnie and MsE on the thunder run.
Great bike miles Lorenzo.
Sorry to hear of your marriage problems GM, especially tough when children are involved. Best wishes to you.
Speedy, that hip doesn't sound too clever, hope you get it sorted. Hip/ Glute is usually my overuse injury.
Plenty of running for me this month as I've been following P&D 70-85 programme but with a few more easier miles than set out on the plan, for example I'm only running about half the LR and MLR at Mara pace + 20/10%, the other half just running easy at no more the 8mm.
Seem to be coping ok (feck, I've just jinxed myself!)
306 miles for the month and 1 rest day due to family commitments which is bloody unreasonable.
Keep up the good work people.
