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

10k PB 45.47    should be happy as I spent my 40s trying to go under 47 mins but I know if it hadnt been for the bloody head wind over the last 3k I would have gone well under 45.30 I hit 8k comfortably in 35 mins 

Oh and 2nd in catagory , there was a new speedy just come up from the cay below that ran 44.39 .... she keeps nabbing the 1st lately  

2 more 10k tbis year bith hillier courses though 


next race is next tues 5th in the 5k  series top in age so far 2 more to go we have to complete 5 out of the 6 to qualify so I have to do the next 2 as I already missed 1 when I was injured 

read back later off for recovery run now

Tek a very impressive 17 miler , good effort indeed ! 

NP nice oark running ! I take it that was without Buddy ?  ? there  are 2 park runs near me , one allows dogs  the  other  doesnt

Tric good luck 

SM6 sounds like you have a good plan , is the GNR really only 6 weeks away ? or did I miss read that ?  

Tek I also missed the bit about the fall ( thats usually my trick ! ) at least it hasnt stopped you , nice 7 miler 

MG1 impressive pace for that 14 ! whats your next race ? 

CL missing one long run wont hurt ! but try and run , like Tek says get up early while its cooler , you can always go back to bed for a couple of hours , warm weather trainung is also goid for you , you will be flyimg when you come back to a cooler climate

Park run for me today 

21.59 a 28 sec course  PB and 3rd lady !  Im liking the short stuff !

Tric I used to run sub 45 10k late 30s early 40s  then through my 40s up till just last year I was stuck at 47-48 , I think I started to enjoy longer stuff as it less painful ! and like you say you forget how to push yourself I started adding weights and more cross training track work again and this year I managed 45.59 , hoping next week to go under 45.30 should be able to if recent shorter races are anything to go by ( but the course I am racing can be windy ) 


Tek nice run through the woods , good to get off the concrete , yes go for  it more speed work !

OH sorry to see things still arent 100 % but with your overall good fitness hopefully  things will improve soon 

Had a full day yesterday 

did kettle bells in the morning which Insm not sure was a good idea just a few hours before a track session but hey ho it didnt kill me !

track last night was 400..800..1200..1200 off 200 jigs then repeat ! 4.5 miles covered average pace 7.08

Tric how old are you ?  I am 53 like NP says you are never too old to get faster ! I am faster now than in my early 40s and competitive in my age group often getting a cat prize, each to their own I guess 

NP looks like you have lots of plans for the winter that would hamper VLM training , yes thats what Zi mean I guess its the training I am fed up with you have to miss out on so many other things race wise , and I also intend doing XC this  winter  just the club team but that woukd also be sonething totally different for me I have my GFA and fully intend using it in 2017 


track session tonight ! the first one post injury !

NP Have you also lost your enthusiasm for marathons ? odd isnt it ? I got my sub 3.40 this year at last and feel , yes maybe I could improve on it a bit but what if I dont ? Im not into collecting medals for the sake of it , and really enjoying the challenge of shorter faster stuff ! and If one race goes wrong you can go and do another in a couple of weeks ! unlike marathons ! good luck with your 10 mile race 

  SM6 nice mileage and impressive pace for the 13   Tek nice 17 miler  in the heat ! so glad not to be marathon training myself after training thriough  the summer for Lochness last year  Tric glad to see you have recovered from the partying ! good luck with your planned schedule , I have no desire whatsoever to do an ultra !     SC sorry to see you are still suffering with the bloody achillies keep up the cross training !  Easy 6.5 yesterday  First body pump class at my new gym today slighlty different set up/routine to what I am used to but I left in a sweaty mess so it did the job !
