SM6 ! nice run gym sandwich !!  the training is certainly different for 10k ! more quality/fast stuff I am enjoying  it and feeling alot fresher with  some real  strucure to my plan , so glad I decided to give Amsterdam Marathon a miss ! doing the half  instead , my friends have decided to do the same , so looking forward to a nice girly weekend no presure and some energyb left after to enjoy some sight seeing without   the quads giving way  

Jason you dont seem to have lost it speed wise ... good  luck in the diet you will be flying superb run 

MG nice run/pace in humid weather , its much the same here , chuffed to see you got your GFA in Inknow  how much you want to do it 

Should have been tempo today but its hot , I am between shifts and runnung off road , so not  easy to get pace up 

Had a hard off road ( usual coastal path beach run )


6 miles  in 49.55  nice steady 8.19 pace happy with that

StewartC patience will pay off ! it has with me I am now at the end of what felt like a long dark tunnel , keep it easy x

OH more good swimmimg , ha ha !!!  boundry fielder ! I am waiting to be thrown off  the pitch ! my brother seems to think we shouldnt be running  round there !! we do have to climb under/ over barbed  wire to get there !!! my lastet injury is a nice scratch on my shoulder ! 

Jason I did see GFA is due , but shock  horror I am giving it a miss next year , this years injury is still too fresh in my mind to find any enthusiasm about next years VLM I am concentrating on other stuff this winter and may even do the cross country league I honestly dont fancy slogging out 20 milers in February again  I am enjoying the challenge of short faster stuff ( never thought  I would say that ) .there another 5k /  10k / half marathon  PB in me I am sure ....I shall carry my VLM entry to 2017 !  


MG nice training have a good taper you sure have put the work in 

SM6 nice 6 miler , sounds like a sensible decision no point in racing and facing disapointment / bad results if you have doubts ! I know what you nean though odd isnt it how the body responds differently each day 

Tek good luck with the marathin plan ! you sound a little more positive 

Happy happy happy today longest run since london 

Coastal path/beach/ common  mostly all off road 9 miles in 1.19     thats 8.49s no issues !

just a quick post at work ! 


Speed session today I ventured in to the track alone so no competiton or worry about getting too carried away not sure it was a good idea the heel didnt respond well to the surface so  will stick to the cricket  pitch 

anyway  continued to run with but of a niggle ( naughty I know ) but its settled again now after a  decent icing 

6x800s off 2 mins rest  average of 7.20 pace happy with that
