Quick check in 

Not posted for a few days , wasnt too well over the weekend so took it easy 

Steady 12 miler @8.40 pace on Monday in very blustery conditions

Body pump and lots of core work yesterday no time for a run after as I had to work 

7.1 hilly windy miles @ 9.25 pace today took it easy as planning long run 21 ( hopefully ) tomorrow more winds forecast  luckily I have once again persuaded my friend to do 12 miles with me , so I shall get 4/6 done before meeting her then there is less to do on my own after 

Great pic OH and another good report

SM6 thats a very impressive 17 mile pace ! makes up for it not being 20 

NP SNOW !! the only snow I have seen this year is when we went to Iceland 

MG Zurich is when 2 weeks ?

SC  snow for you also  !! body pump and 2 runs ! superb days training 

Some great stats guys ! 

mine were 232 for jan 233 for feb, march a little lower 190  due to tapering for a target half and not being too well end of last week ,plus I replaced a couple of MLR with track sessions , as I feel endurance isnt an issue for me .. I needed more quality .

Pleased that weight lower by 6 lbs  this year than when I ran London last year ! it helped with my half marathon time lets hope it makes a difference to my full ! 

I have a 7 and a bit mile race on Easter Monday

SC  ah I see , well a briiliant work out , I hope tne massage wasnt too painful ! I was left with bruised quads after my last one 

GM well good luck with your first marathon , I didnt reaslise you were in NZ so will it a warm marathon in May ?


MG Zurich ! nice , whats the course like ? flat ? good luck  with  your last long run . 

SM6 nice track session ! you certainly have some speed in those lags ! 

NP shame your weather has taken a turn for the worse ! things not looking too good here for the weekend either , Buddy must be getting withdrawal symtoms that for sure, but tbose couple of days off will mean he flies at the weekend  have fun 

Tek still early days ! my son is still in agony from his half last sunday ! He rarely races but when he dies he goes mental ! 

Feeling like pooh today  one of those days when you know you shouldnt head out the door , had planned 10 ish miles when I got up but my whole body was crying to stop .... so for once I did !    

    just 4.5 feeble miles   sniffing and   coughing a bit so may take weekend off  ... ! .

SC that was a real quality session ! I would have to write it down on my arm to remember when to change pace , very complicated , not sure I will be attempting it myself a tough run good  effort indeed 

Fiona nice to see you , you will be missed on coffee and cake day  looks like its just me an NP , I think Jason is running Taunton marathon this year which is fairly local to me and 2 weeks before London , so you take care and enjoy the biking and custard pies 

NP speedy MLR , hope buddys paw gets better soon

MG1 another great session , you are runing Manchester arent  you ?  one of my male club mates is also doing it 

Tek , agreed , its a bit soon to be trying too much , a nice easy week wont hurt 

SM6 , well done on the 8 which should have been 13  I wont pick on you as I am sure you will get the chance again ! to get your own back , good luck on the track , I am skipping any more track sessions before London as they really leave my legs mashed for days , all my faster stuff now will be tempo and a couple of short races 

OH lovely pics 

GM which marathon are you doing is it London ? 

Easy 5 recovery for me today

Kenno I am also running Amsterdam ! ( once I get London out of the way ) and after training through last summer to do Lochness last Sept I did say I wouldnt train  for another autumn marathon , last summer was hot !!

Just carry a camel back ! simples , or run laps and leave water stops , OR take some money and buy a bottle if you pass  a shop/ garage , where there a will theres a way ! keep posting it will be good to share Amsterdam training chat with you , keep building strength back into the leg, plenty of time

Tric , ah I see 53 miles !!!!! so that marathon was a walk in the park for you good luck with your Fling !

Tek how bloody frustrating ! a club mate of mine says ' you cant run the first mile too slow but you can run it too fast ' but !!! as SM6 says it was worth busting a gut at a sub 1.30 attempt , theres always next time ! 

SC fabulous miles for the week ! I was tempted to go out for a 3 miler last night to bring mine over the 60 but thought better of it I have gone over 60 several times in the last few weeks though and planning if all goes well 65/67 this week 

Mace , 95 miles a week is amazing ! you must be in great shape ! whats your target ?

Sundown excellent report and result very weldone on smashing that PB !

NP superb pacing for the sub 1.30 hunters , and love the pics of waggy races , the beach ones are gorgeous , happy healthy runners and dogs and a lovely  sea view back drop it looks like a magazine shot ! 

SM6 !! well I done mine have you done yours 

22 miles in 3.22 ... 9.10s , with my brother  nice and easy perfect conditions alls good
