Badbark - hope this weekend's marathon is a good one.
GDawg - good solid running from you. Race day is still ages away and you are putting in good strong long ones (oo-er) already.
Gul - great long run despite that "late" start
Abbers - you are running well, is the work life balance a bit better now?
BikeIt - well done on the surprise PB! That's a great time.
Philip - that is one hell of a long time to be going. Secret to running longevity please?
OO - still super speedy. You don't seem to ever slow really.
Birch - heavy legs makes me think that they are lactate filled. Did you run the earlier steady run a bit faster than you would normally? Or fail to eat enough carbs to fuel the muscles adequately before depleting them in that run? You did do a lot of running at variable speeds which would give me heavy legs without having to think about the reasons why. I think you are too hard on yourself!
Lorenzo - hello neighbour! Looking good.
SJ - how's the body holding up?
Speedy - big hugs. Congrats on that excellent parkrun standard.
Finished the week today on 47.5 miles with an 11 mile trail run at 7:51/mi. It reminded me to avoid muddy trails for now as my calf tweaks slightly at the moment from the instability. For Boston training, I will need to keep it boring and keep it paved. There. I said it. Week 1 of 12 begins on Monday.
