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

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

Just a quick post 

Round 4 of the 5k summer series last night , nearly didnt bother as I hate 5k , but decided to get on with it after all its over pretty quick , was hoping for sub 21.30 my PB last time , not to be though a bit windy and it doesnt take much on that particular course to loose seconds , 21.36 so fairly close ... then to add a few extra miles a 3 mile recovery run when I got home , so with the warm up cool down race and recovery run I managed to cover 8.5 miles last night 

Will catch up properly later , not sure what I will do training wise today , woke at 5 ! early for me so may go out in a bit and get it done , as I am clothes/shoes shopping all day today with a friend ,....

Tek I hope you enjoy your running with the Serpies , a massive and well known club superb effort at the 7k race also so the training with them is paying  off 

Fiona nice to see you , I know you mean a 10 mile and not 10 hour easy run I saw it on Strava  nice going 

SC sorry to see you ate injured at the moment , at least you have the bike , although its nit the same is it ? if you are a runner at heart 

SM6 good luck with the 17 , my target sometime  this week also 

MG1 superb pace for your long run my 10k pace isnt much quicker than that 

OH good luck today 

7 easy miles Friday 8 easy yesterday all at around 8.20 pace brings weeks miles to 47.8 so I shall pop out for a quick 3 miles today to bring the total to 50 ! highest weekly miles in well over 16 months and I dont know why its now typingi slanted text also a little swim later
