SM6 thats a brilliant result weldone indeed 

DD I did Dublin a few years ago a nice course ( if its not hammering down with rain ) looks like there have been changes though according to NP

Tek hope the long run went well ! still warm today 

MG1 nice to see you keeping up the training  while in your hols ( as we mad runners do ) 

OH nice to see you are recovering take it easy 

NP brilliant result ! especially after your busy days mixing that concrete ! odd isnt it , a bit like my 10 mile walk before my 5k PB ! 

easy weekend as on nights did  just over 7 miles @8.25s yesterday and had the privilage of seeing Dolphins in the sea just half  a mile from my new home  a rare sight here apparently  my OH has lived here 7 years and not seen them ! I was running along the sea front when I saw a crowd staring out to the sea ! and there were 2 playing well within sight 

rest today nights tonight longish run tomorrow

Good evening 


NP glad the hammy is settling a good days training in the bag , what tri distancec are ypu doing ? and thanks you have always inspired me I have seen you get faster with age I now believe I can also I am getting lots of words  of encouragement as well as almost disbelief from club mates I am a lot lighter now than in my 40s I think thats helped 

SM6 nice 9 miler ! hope the PC problem gets sorted 

For some reason I cant view the previous page ! to see what MG1 and Tek have been up to .. but all sounds good from NPS post 


12.5 miles @9.09 pace today , legs felt a bit tired after last nights race but today was the only chance I could get the longer run in

catch up propely later quick post 

Got another PB last night 5k in 21.35 thats 20 secs off my best  splits were 6.50,  6.57, 6.53, last bit 5.59 !! over the moon ! 

I had walked a 10 mile coastal path  in the morning with a friend ! not ideal prep , but I had promised her I would walk with her shes on a diet and  lost 3 stone by walking loads and I am helping keeping her company on some of her walks the deal is she buys me chocolate brownies at our coffee stop ( Im not on a diet )

will read back later hoping my  legs will carry me on a longish run today

Tek a nice couple of days training nice club sandwich !

Tric no there is no excuse ! I was inspired by NP who we have seen get quicker over the last couple of years , good news that you are recovering  well , I have no idea what my VO2 max is but my cadence according to my garmin is about 180 so if yours is good so must mine be ! 

SM6 sounds like a quality session there ! hope it stayed dry for your  run ! hardly had any rain here the last few weeks 

MG1  have  good long run ! 

NP excellent training/ doubles/ mixture  as always 

11 miles @ 9.10 s before work last night for me
