SM6 thats a very good 10k time you obviously have a good basic speed ! its there so when it comes to marathons you obviously lack in the amount of long runs you do , are you planning anither marathon in the spring ? 

NP good to see it was only a 24 hour bug 

MG7 good long run shame about the phone 

StewartC well done on the 10 I was lucky yesterday with the weather also 

Fiona take care you have a good marathon to look back on a rest is deserved  anyway , enjoy the bike 

MG1 nice pace for the 5 made all the more enjoyable in great weather

13 miles @9.30s ( with a hangover from my sisters birthday party  ) yesterday longest run since lochness , hard to imagine I will be back up to 20 milers again by christmas 

club later tonight

SM6 odd isnt it how sometimes even 4 -5 miles easy can feel hard , at least you got out there 

NP good news about the park run stuff , nice swim 

OH I guess its getting a little chilly for sea swims , will you venture in again ( thats probably a silly question 

StewartC the legs are bound  to feel tired ! mine are still a little tight after my 10 mile race 

11.2 miles @ 9.30 pace last night between shifts legs tired felt a struggle 

easy 5/6 later

Good afternoon

Not too bad a result today , although I do think Fridays track session  followed by too many glasses of red wine ( you have too live )  plus getting up early and marshalling yesterdays oark run with a hangover plus my grandson blowing his whistles @ 4.50 am this morning ! kids dont care about the clocks going back !  none of that makes for ideal race prep at my age !! 

Not into writing long race reports so in brief 

Tavy 7 held on Dartmoor is all on road  lovely scenic route plenty of sheep spectating I didnt realise just how tired I really was till I started running the whole thing did feel a real struggle with the the first 3 miles being a very gentle but long draggy climb

miles 4 was lovely 7.10 pace mostly down hill but the wind was damn annoying espcially over the last 1.5 miles ! bang right into a head wind which could have been a nice gentle down hill finish 

7 miles in 54.10


89/380 overall and 15/150 ladies 


 so not too bad  considering I have burnt the candles at both ends this weekend 




So come on guys how has Fiona done ??????
