OH nice 10.5+3.5 and no doubt a few games of badminton yesterday.

SC thats a good 7 with some nice LT miles in the middle.

Dr Dan nice 8 miles at 7:17 pace and 5.35 miles with 6 x 400 in there, with the bike commute the legs will be ready to go come Sunday.

HM4 well done for doing something, better than nothing.

Teknik nice run in the sun through Hyde Park.

SM6 Thats a great fast mile and a nice new PB

Ollie sounds like a fishy tale to me, nice 3 miles and a good 7 miles with your brother.

MG7 thats a good session with the 6x800m in the middle.

NN Great report and another PB  beating a string of younger females your a true inspiration, the vomiting feeling is pure effort and love your running on feel Not doing another marathon this year. I did look at a few but holidays will get in the way. Another fantastic WAVA

Cal well done on the Spin class, the roller and stretching should always be part of a training program.

7.71 Miles last night on the roads 7:01 avg pace, not many at the club due to the marathons. Did 6.51 on the trails avg 7:14 pace.

Had a full MOT this morning at the Doctors, Blood pressure 130/60 Heart rate and ECG all good, resting Heart rate was 43. Had bloods taken and will get the results next week but don't think my cholesterol will be a problem.

MG7 great last long run enjoy the taper and followed up with a good 10 miles.

Ollie nice 10 miles banked and good milage for the week and month nice total for the year. Yep out watching the marathon

Yellow well done on the miles on the bike milage always down on taper and recovery.

HM4 well done for getting out what did you do?

SC hope the tempo run went well, yes done Belfast three times not a big fan of it, sponsored by deep river rock and water from buckets filled by hand from fire hydrants, roads not closed and running through an industrial estate but worse of all is its also a relay. Infant thats what it should be called the Belfast relay.

SM6 Well done on the 14 miles today, nice to try different things out just don't get carried away.

Rest day cycle of about 12 miles, didn't use the garmin as I was going very easy with lots of stops to cheer on club mates during the Belfast marathon. Nice to see two get GFA times for London and looks like a bigger group going over next year. Just booked the hotel again

Dan well done on the park run today don't know how you can push the pace so soon. CW Was intresting following your high mileage for this years VLM and how close you got to your PB on it. Came in 50th in the 50-54 age group and will move up into the 55 -59 group in August, hope to get in the top 15-20 in that group next year.

Teknik well done on the 5k PB   Still more to come especially after 9 miles yesterday.

SM6 well done on the intervals yesterday I think if your starting out more miles is the way to go to improve form and get the body used to running and become economical. But there is a point due to work/life commitments that you get to a point where all your doing is running tired and not adding any quality. Its at that stage you should drop the miles and add the quality we should all be able to find that point

SC well done on the intervals hard when you haven't done them for a while

DR well done on the first 17 weeks of the year, I did a half marathon two years ago off very few miles and was only 2 mins slower then normal so it can work But that wasn't backed up by any bike work just runs and swims. Good luck with the Parkrun tomorrow.

Yellow enjoy tomorrows 6 x 1 miles and try and make them all the same time

Did 4.7 miles on the trails yesterday afternoon legs getting back to normal Swam 70x25m front crawl this morning and taking a rest day today. Will help out at Parkrun tomorrow and then do a few miles on the trails

Ollie well done on the Vivaldi conditions run and todays 3 miles.

SC Well done on the 6 miles in more winter conditions. As for your question I always thought more miles, more miles, more miles but have changed that a lot over the past couple of years dropping down from 90+ mile weeks to 60-74 mile weeks. I also think that this still might be a little hight. Once you become an economical runner very little is going to change to make a big difference and this is where all the quality work comes in.

If you look at the week starting with the Parkrun on a Saturday+w/u&c/d =6 miles with 3@5k pace. Sunday Long run building up to 20/22 miles. Monday rest or 5 easy. Tuesday intervals with w/u&c/d 6 miles. Wed 8/10 easy. Thursday tempo 6 miles  10k pace building up to 8 miles. Friday Rest or 5 easy. If you take a rest on a Monday or Friday it is up to you but take a rest day with no running. The Max weeks milage is would be 57 miles with a rest day and a good mix of mixed paces. Less miles but hitting the quality.

SM6 well done on the 9 miles sorry never done Amsterdam.

Yellow well done on the 5 miles, think your going easy on yourself on the shorter distances

Cal well done on the intervals the speed will come just keep at it.

Dr Dan well done on the commute enjoy the swim.

Teknik well done on the tempo run.

40x25m front crawl this morning and will get out later when the snow stops for a run on the trails.
