SC nice 400 intervals ! keep up the speedwork its painful but you get the rewards 

NP well done on the swim and trail running , 

Fiona take care of that ankle ! have you any race plans ? 

SM6 a fantastic days training ! and those  400s are quick !

OH yes the Grizzly lives up to its name ! thats why I have shyed away from it all these years ! its starts virtually on my doorstep ! its one I need to tick off ! I would expect to take around 4 hours to be honest not being a very good off road runner but I plan to get some practice in ! there really us no excuse there is a pebbled beack half a mile from my door !! good luck tomorrow 

MG1 take it easy

track session yesterday pyrimid session 200/400/600/800/800/600/400/200 just a 30/40 recovery  breather between ..we had to hold mile for each distance so the second 800 was the toughest  pace  average pace of 6.20 over all 

rest today and later I will be following my friend who qualified for Kona IM ! she qualified at Wales IM last year for this years world champs ! second  in age WV40 her PB is 10.20 its the secind time shes got into Kona so proud  of her

MG1 a massive weldone to you ! you got the result you deserved and worked for ! a little rest now then VLM training starts ! 

NP at least you got some swimming done on holiday , I see you have decided to run London after all ! I have given myself no choice , I still cant decide if I have done e the right thing or not ! 

Fiona sorry to hear the ankle is playing up !  look after it

SM6 ! bugger !! what a shame you dudnt get to race ! to be honest  though personally I think you would have done well all the same ! its a well known saying its the night before the night before that counts ! how many oeople get a decent nights sleep before VLM  ? I am damn sure I dont ! the training and adreniline would  have seen you through I am sure ! still never mind you will never know now ! you are still runing well and I am sure that new PB will happen soon 

SC I am with SM6 some 4-5 mile tempo runs will be more useful than 2 short fast sessions .... I run the park run then if i have time , run hard for another  3 miles rather than cool down miles not sure if its the way to do things but I feel it works for 



Seeing as Im not running VLM I have decided to look out for a place in the Grizzly  ! you may or  may not heard of it , its a fairly famous nasty 18-20 off roader along whats known as the Jurrasic Coast , lots of cliff running , shingle / beach etc ! Its one if those local runs that people from all over to take part in and one I feel I should tick off most of my running  mates have done it ... not till march and I have to get a place , not easy its full already ! but I have been assured people always drop out and if i want a place I should get it .

7 miles of cliff top running in an hour yesterday awesome views but wet and windy ! invigorating 

4-5 easy later today 

Races coming up for me 

Amsterdam half 18th Oct

Bideford 10 mile 1 Nov

Drogo 10 ( off road ) 15 th Nov

Bicton Blister 10ish off road 29th Nov
