NP , not sure which friend you mean ? she ? I think you may mean Jody ? she is actually a he !! the times he has been announced as first lady at a race is really funny ! nice doubles from you as ever ! 

Ollie , there is only  one marathon ! I am doing London 2017 , nice streaking well done on all those miles ! 

OH bad luck in the weather , nit too bad here  for us southern  softies !  

Cal nice progressive run there , always better in bright chilly weather , my kind of weather 

SM6 Sounds like a sensible decision , no point in spending all that money to batter your body for a half hearted effort , save your energy for something else, thats how I felt about this years non Abingdon !! I started the training , crap life events took over and I couldnt be bothered ! ... hope the injury is improving , as for the weight gain !! merry christmas !! not a good time of year to diet ha ha ! 

6 easy miles yesterday and 11 medium long run in 1 hour 29...  @8.06 pace today .... feeling very very easy ... 

track session tomorrow ..

Olliepop that is some recovery run !  Tell your cousin you are in the zone ! 

Tek nice run there ! HR is going to be high if its humid just throw the thing (HRM )! away like I did 

SM6 excellent mid week MLR , the longest P&D mid weeker is 15 miles in tne toughest schedule so 14 is ample 

SC really sorry to hear you are still injured , I have a male friend exactly the same as you , suffers continually , then he keeps ' testing ' it ! please please rest its the omly way , take care keep lurking , and posting you will get plenty of support here 

Fiona , a nice mix of training , any run races planned ? 

OH busy as ever getting lots of variation , including the kayaking

Hi all 

Been awol again for a while ! life eh !!

Will catch up properly later 

Did a 10k race last Wednesday ... very warm conditions and with a head wind .. unchipped though so slightly disaponted as I was given bang on 45 mins rather than 44.59 which was what my garmin clocked , plus I had started quite a way behing the line .. still a course PB by just under a minute ... and I think I can claim a sub 45 

Back to marathon training today 18 miles .. 3 easy 8@MP ( around 8mm ) then 7 easy 

total time for 18 was 2.32 average pace 8.27 ... luckily my brother who isnt actually marathon training kept me company .. 

will read back now and catch up later

SM6 I saw your epic 11 miler on strava ! a seriously good run with those tough MP miles , good effort on the club stuff after that and recovery today 

Ollie nice 14 and awesome 5k time even after a falll !  I think thats where most people go wrong ! marathon pace whatever it is for whover it is feels almost  too easy after a good  taper esoecially over the early miles but its a different story at 22 , wise words from a friend , you can run the first mile too fast but you can never run it too slow 

DD well done on getting a decent speed session in at lunch time 

Tek thats certainlt a different way to do a MLR !! and yes if your club is anything like mine  8mm means 7.45 at slowest ! and always a race to the club house ! 

GM that was really a real quality session with a training half marathon time in a time people would die for in a race  ! you deserve a easy day 

Cal nice progressive run never easy to pace  right ! but you nailed it 

Ive had a good couple of days weather perfect for a change ! 

10k stready run on -wednesday @ 7.45 pace

8 easy miles @ 8.25s yesterday 

18 miles 9.05 pace today with a mate really chuffed with that ! longest run since April 2015 ! and it actually felt easy , plenty left in the tank ! I resisted the tempation to carry on and do 20 !!

DD , Its odd , it seems to be a man thing ! I know lots of men who run far faster than me over a half but are slower over the marathon , hoping for sub 3.40 myself PB is 3.39.... VLM 2015

DD see you there  what time are you hoping for ? 

Tek thats still a pretty good weeks mileage considering ! well done on tne boring breezy 15 miler ! those runs test our mental toughness ( or do they just prove we are mental ) ? 

Fiona nice peddling and a good session on the dreadmill do you have your own ? 

Ollie nice 10 miler , and yes thanks I enjoyed the gym session , just some upper body weights 

Calnice easy 4 , and I dint think I could do that yoga position on  a good day ! whatever it is   

SM6 ! awesome ! very impressive 17 miler ! and I know what you mean about the wind ! it seems a very windy summer all round so far ! 

11 miles MLR in 1 hour 32 today average pace 8.23   very happy with that
