Hmmm..Sense I've had abdo pain for a while now. I remember it coming on after I did a core session from youtube, I thought it would heal but it never has.  It goes away, but after a run is all across my lower abdomen and into my right inner thigh. I don't suppose it is going to get any better but my health centre are absolutely useless.

The walk was brilliant thanks, weather was superb.  Malcs, we were further north than those poor people on the Brecon Beacons. We got there about 6am and had a great scramble over Crib Goch then ambled on up to Snowdon for a champagne lunch.

Back to business yesterday though, 14 miles at 9mm for the first ten then speeding up to 8is for the last one. Tempo tomorrow

Well done on scond place Malcs. If it were me I would scouring the results nationwide to find one where I could win

Doesn't the accelerometer thing in the hrm pod act as a footpod? very accurate on a readmill, recordng exactly the same distance as the machine the one time I bothered with it.

Evening! Very appropriate reading peoples views on 10ks, Sunday's 10k was definitely a race of 2 sections though not halves. 4k out with a tailwind, hairpin turn on the riverbank, 4k back into the wind  and then a twisty undulating section through a park. A minute or so quicker than last year as was mrs P so very pleased.

Top trophy Angela, though I really cant make up my mind between the two! Your sentence about bed does rather read as if you go to bed after every lunch

Im starting my Chester plan with a bit of structure, last night was medium long run, 7 miles in that intense heat, quite hard work but I just backed off whenever it became too much. 


Big walk tomorrow, taking a day off work to walk over Crib Goch to Snowdon with a colleague, looks like it is going to be a great day for it.


Races with little road sections

If you get something that's not an out and out off road/fell shoe you'll be fine. I happily did a road marathon in a pair of Asics attack trail shoes. You'll benefit from the extra grip even on short grass and dry trails and you probably won't notice any difference on the road section.

Running on country roads

We were just driving back from a race, two miles from our house, on a really bad double bend that I treat with extreme caution and as a result was able to avoid a woman running on the inside of the bend (into the oncoming traffic fair enough but invisible to it) with two dogs on a lead and headphones in.

You are correct, except on bends where you should be on the outside of the bend for maximum visibility. There's just a lot of thick drivers out there.
