Tek nice to get another 20 in the bank nice pace too , 

SC I hope body pump went well ! how where the miles after class ? it always seems like a good idea but its tough isnt it !

NP thanks I feel I have a really good week behind me another brilliant day for you and hope the park run went well 

Tric Hope the weather was as good for your 20 as it was for my 18 

MG flipping eck ! speedy 18 awesome 

SM6 nice park running and that bit of competition from your brother cant be a bad thing ! remember to set the alarm click for your 20 tomorrow , good luck with it 

Track session last night 9x600s off 200 jog recoveries all @ 2.27-2.30 mins hard session each rep always ending in a bloody 100 meter sprint ! left me with sore legs for todays 18 ! 

today  the weather was better than forecast and  I had company for 8 of my 18 which helped big time I ran 5 , met my friend who wanted to do 8 then ran 5 on my own 

18 in 2.45   ave 9.10 pace happy with that as it was done less than 14 hours after track ! 


Decided to pack the yax trax to get a little run in iceland ( for bragging rights as OH said  on face book )

SC sounds as if the achillies is settling down , take it easy be sensible and  fingers crossed you can begin to up the miles 

Wow Mace 97 miles ! which  marathon are you  targeting ?  You are following the next schedule up from me , I am being careful and dont intend doing  doubles very often 

Tek , yes hoping to catch the Northern lights and visit the blue lagoon , well done on the 8 miler and lucky you missing the rain ( I got drenched today )

GM nice pacy 8.2 miles especially with the hills 

Sm6 nice hills and superb improvement ! I am following the P&D up to 70 and skip the doubles , but had the time yesterday I wont be doing doubles often , I know its a fine line , I am lucky to get away with the mileage I do already

9 wet windy miles with a few strides in 1.19 today

NP nice training ! and weldone on the weight  loss , it means faster times but  I know what you mean about not wanting to lose too much though , ( too much does make us look older I think ) people have started to comment on my weight recently only about a 5lb loss but it looks more , my uniform is hanging off I wouldnt mind losing 2/3 more though  but dont want to lose my chubby cheeks the one  on my face !!! 

Tek nice marathon pace ! I must do more of those ! I do have a 20 mile race in 3 weeks and tend to run 12/14 of that at marathon pace 

Managed 2 runs today ! both easy 5.5 this morning and 6.2 this evening trying to cram miles in this week as I am away next week off to Iceland , no not the shop ! so no running there , there is a dreadmill in the hotel but wont do alot on that as its a goid excuse for a decent taper for Bideford Half on the 8th

Quick post at work 

13 turned into 14.5 ... By the time I found my brother 'near to where we had arrange to meet after he was meant to have 7 !  I had done  half a mile he had only  done 6 ! I had promised to run the  last bit  of his 20 so that meant I had another 14 with him , it was actually a really nice afternoon and we trotted along at 9s maybe a little quick for his 20 but he stuck  with me 

14.5 in 2.10 just under 9s today

SM6 , well ! lets hope you dont over sleep next sunday 

Tek nice word 'joglet' 

OH excellent double effort ! Looks like we are all suffering poor weather 

MG nice effort in windy conditions  ( again )

SC glad to hear things are settling with the achillies good luck with todays treatment 

Yesteday I thiugh either easy day or rest , decided to make use of my gym membership and did sone weights then joined in the spinning class , turned up to see the woman taking it last night was the same one who takes my pump class ! I knew then it wasnt going to be an easy  option !  45 minutes of hills , hills hills and she really is quite evil , I left there feeling completely wrecked ! 

Today I have promised to run part of my brothers  20 with him , will join him for the last 12/13 to give myself a decent MLR ....

SM6 there is no valid reason why you cant get that 20 done ! unless you are injured or a wimp 

NP weldone to wendy and superb 17 miler for you , love the pic of the grandson playing the piano ! sounds like a lovely family weekend grandkids are extra special arent they ? 

JH its hard to educate some people on pacing , still a good time , but it may have been quicker or at least less painful if he had started slower eh ?

SM6 again We are all looking forward to hearing about your 20  after all its just 3 hours or so out of your life ! whats that ? nothing 

Dont know what I shall do today , rest or easy 4 for the sake of it will see how I feel when I wake up after sleeping of my shift
