RJ its a very friendly  thread , and I have also been included in NP Jason and Fionas  tradition of meeting up on the Saturday before VLM for coffee and cake ( or in Jasons case 3 cakes ) I am hoping to maybe catch up with SM6 and OH at the start of Lochness next week 

I remember lurking for a few weeks before posting a couple christmas days ago ! the post that prompted me to comment was Jason ! 4 runs on Christamas day between peeling spouts ! 

Fiona , yep its that time of year ! no more early evening runs through the country lanes for me either 

NP what distance is yout TRI ? hey talking of running with dogs ! wheres AGF lately ? 

Just popping out for easy 4 more work for nearly 2 weeks ! now thats what I call a taper

Evening or more like morning by the time I finish the post 

Argggggg there it is in black and white the marathon race list ! feels wierd different to VLM taper , not so much pressure although still hoping for an easy sub 4 

NP nice swim/bike , the bike looks well fast , nice little treat 

Fiona super fast interval session ! (the one thing missing from my training )

And I think sportifs arent races as such , but more about individual personal challenge/goal ie getting gold silver bronze times for your age ( I think ) 

MG1 / SM6 remember  me mentioning about my sniffle ? it seems to come at the end of marathon  training as I hit taper ! it happens every time , its your body saying  ... stop now ! TAPER !! 

Tek 7.55 pace sounds pretty good to me 

RJ welcome ! and I love this thread also 

Easy 5 @8.30 pace between shifts  with a few strides thrown in , 

I have volunteered to marshall our local park run on Saturday its only been up and running fur a few weeks ! may get to run myself once Lochness is out the way

Fiona , not really ridden a bike since I had  chopper back in 1975 ! had a go a few years ago and fell off big style !  so all very knew to me but love it cant wait to join the skyride group in a few weeks to get used to the roads and cycling with others , watch this space !  I WILL enter a sportif

Fiona nice turbo session , I will be badgering you for cycling tips , Im rubbish ,, seriously 13 / 14 miles an hour  Mo can run that fast ! 

Went out for cycle today legs feeling really tired after yesterdays race , didnt fancy a recovery run so did 21 miles in bike instead ... love it but sooooooo slow !  it is hilly round here and I am sticking to country lanes to avoid traffic , but downside of that is its narrow with blind corners so have to take it easy ( thats my excuse anyway )    at least I can only get better !

SM6 sometimes less is more , maybe that 1x 20 will be enough for you , hope the planned 18 goes well tomorrow 

NP glad you are better 1.22 !!! what fabulous time ! love the pic on FB  very well done 

StewartC nice biking ! im loving it too , I found a great site SkyRide , listing lots of local organised free !!! social / training rides , great for someone like me new to it and a little nervous about venturing out on the roads alone , I have booked myself on a 35 mile ladies only ride in October to see how it goes 

Jason sorry you had a bad one ! but you have nothing to prove hope you recover well and get back into the swing of things in the next few days 

Fiona excellent long run never easy when its warm ! its been a warm summer not sure I would have trained for an autumn marathon if I had known it was going  to be so flipping hot ! 

MG7 wow excellent sub 4 on a hilly course with an off road section ! sounds a tough one , hope you can walk down the stairs tomorrow 


I forgot to mention my sons girlfriend  (21 years old) who decided out of the blue she would like to go 'jogging ' with me 2 months ago , after a couple of little 3 -4 milers I took her along to club  , shes been a handful of times decided to race today and ran 50.05 !! first ever race after 2 months of minimal trainiing !oh to be young !!!  a natural watch this space ! dead proud of her

Happy with another sub 47 min 10k  on a hilly course 46.43 at all ladies 10k a course PB and not even raced it for 7 years ! 

The race attracts some fast runners as well as ladies new to running 

I was 3rd V50 and 20th out of 189  

We also had 3rd team prize ( which looking at the results I think is wrong ... we were 2nd ) but no sour grapes  I still walked off with2 bottlles of wine 


back later to see how other racers got on today

MG1 Wise words from NP ! I am laying off any weight / body pump classes during my taper hope the long run went ok ! its nice to get it out the way before the weekend ! 

NP a nice couple of easy days ! good luck on Sunday , and im loving the Buddy clips on FB .... 

Mace  .. it willl good to see you posting more and sharing the VLM training experience .. always an exciting thread at that time , good luck with the training for the 10 miler 

Tek nice little recovery run good  luck with the 5 mile race 

SM6 , sounds as if you did the sensible thing , never worth pushing  too hard when tired ! have you seen the race numbers are out ! I am 2294 ! last year that number did 5.05 , hope im a little faster 

Sheilo keep posting we will keep you motivated ! with a kick up yje bum if you slack off


Good luck racers ! lots this weekend .... MG especially to you ! weather looking favourable 

I managed to get a brilliant  view of TOB yesterday ! I cant believe how fast those guys take the corners ! impressive , also I found watching the police organise the rolling road block system just as amazing , all over too quickly though ! still a nice carnival atmosphere in the town and right outside my front door !! 

I followed that with 5 mile run 4 easy then 1 @ 7.25 mm 10k pace , to remind the legs what they have to do in Sunday x 6 

Not run today , fancied another spin  on the bike so did 21 miles ... nothing now till Sundays race , got a bit of a sniffle ! fingers crossed it will come to nothing ! it always seems to happen as i hit the taper phase ! a sure sign to start to take it easy  I guess

SM6 ... loads of dowhill is music to my ears  hope the interval session works out ok 

Jason same here Im a real lightweight ( cheap date lol ) not a bad thing really . Good session and good luck Sunday ! definately no wine Saturday 

Overslept yesterday so only managed 8.25 miles before work

Alarm set today ! Tour of Britain goes past my front door in about 20 mins !!!
