Morning  on a night shift

Stewart nice to see you gradually building the miles ! are you running any of Lochness races ? I know you arent  doing the marathon but isnt there a 10k also ? 

Tek thanks  and nice little stridey run for you 

SM6 thanks and yes it odd looking at how fast younger people would have to run to achieve the same WAVA ( glad im old ) 

NP I have missed a week or 2 here have you been in another holiday ? 

MG7 so you must be tapering soon ? have you folowed any particular schedule ? nice speedy 4 miler 

Jason I am sure your legs welcomed  the easy day although still plenty of miles there 

Fiona well done on the progressive run even though you were tired ! 

MG1 Cornwall ? long day indeed , still a nice speedy 6 miler at the end of a long day

OH nice 8 plus run and I was thunking the same re Jasons easy day 

Well I did a Jason today  not as fast but got 2 runs done , a 5 mile recovery @10mm this morning to shake off last nights race and an easy 7 @ 9.25 mm  this evening

Jason thanks

For the first time in god knows how many years I ran without a Garmin ! I forgot it ! I was dreading it ! 

I popped into a shop and bough a cheap plasic watch ( not even a stop watch ) Just has to run by feel  , I did ask a couple of runners one at 3k ( 13.25) which if id been wearing a garmin I would have slowed down before then thinking I was running too fast I had it in my head I could run 7.35s max ! over 10k so pace myself based on that 

So is that the best way to run ? looks like it Im annoyed with myself for relying too much on my garmin over the last few years ! may have missed out in sime good times ! Not run a 10k that fast since my early 40s

SM6 Still time to get a couple 20 milers in ! I get obsessed with 20 milers I have done

1x18 1x19 3x20 1x21  ( yes I do have a life lol ) and have my biggest run of 22 planned with a friend next week , Is there any need for all those ? I dont know but I wimp out on speed work 

Fiona which marathon are you doing ? not Lochness is it ? How long have you been cycling ? I am finding venturing anywhere  near traffic terrifying  Swimmi g isnt the problem for me its the bike !! thats why I am giving myself untill well into next summer before evening thinking of attemping a Tri , a swim / run appeals to me and there are a few of those around to get me started 

MG1 A nice days training ! I missed my gym /pt session yesterday as I didnt want battered legs for todays race ! 

OH so you are running Lochness ? great ! lets hope we manage to get a marathon thread picture ! 

MG7 nice run ! which marathon are you targeting ? 

Jason more fantastic miles ! and im sure you are already more than ready to tackle Abingdon with all the training you do

Tek its nice to see it cooling down a bit isnt it ? nice running 

10k race for me tonight ! weather much cooler than of late ideal

Hi not been here for a while ,hope everyone is running / training well 

will read back in a bit 

Still plodding along myself with just 3 weeks till Lochness taper to be honest I wont be sorry , its been a very warm summer and those long runs have been more of a slog than normal 

Got myself a road bike ! with the aim of attemptng a  Triathalon next year  just fancy a new challenge , bit  scarey out on the bike at the moment I had a bad fall about 6 years ago and vowed never to get back on one , but facing my demons and have ventured out a couple of times on some quiet roads to get a bit of confidence back 

10k race for me on Wednesday so essy 4 miles followed by a swim today

will catch up properly later

Training since last signed in includes a very warm 20 miler in 3 hours 5 on Friday a real mental battle in the heat but one that had to be done due to social  commitments over the weekend .

An 11 mile MLR in 1.41 yesterday made the weeks miles up to 61.3 , no OCD to make it 62 far to warm

I have to run betwen shifts or there  be 3 days a week I couldnt train , and to be honest I sleep well and running before a shifts rather than laying about watching telly actually wakes me up and I go to work buzzing ! and as you guys know it has to be done , Its  now my routine I have been known to do a 21 miler between shifts ! only the once though ! 

Fiona , it feels good to do a negative split even in training nice run !

StewartC  well done on more warm weather training   ! nice 6 miler 

SM1  Tempo runs are always the sessions that go out the window here also ( any excuse for me ) enjoy the swim and good luck with the park run 

MG1 , it must feel alot easier for you now ! nice pace for the 7 miler 

OH sounds fun all thay kayaking ! great cross training healing vibes for that ankle ! 

6 easy recovery miles ( between shifts

Long run planned for tomorrow when I  up , no work tomorrow night , and want to get it out the way so I enjoy a few drinks over the weekend

StewartC lots of nice cross training swimmimg running and cycling ! 

SM6 lots of miles over the last few days , nice gate jumping ! enjoy the swim ! a swim sounds very tempting at the moment its so bloody hot ! 

MG1 a tough day ! doubles and PT session 10 weeks till Jersey means 7/8 weeks till taper !! OMG it also means 9 weeks till Lochness !!!! 

A really hot humid sticky 14.25 miles @9.20 pace last night between shifts surely its all going to benefit a cooler marathon !! ?
