MG1 nice session

SC hope the massage did the trick, I had a point on my right calf that nearly made me cry when it was getting sorted

Tekkie nice double day  and a nice short sharp session today 5:17 pace

OH LOL @ NP the amphibian who likes a massage, she can make me cry

Just the short swim yesterday and massage and today just 750m front crawl and 3 miles with strides in the last half a mile. No PB efforts tomorrow, weather not looking good to race in but enjoyed this cut back week and feeling fresh. Good luck SM6 and NN run strong.

Tekkie nice session at 5 k pace nice to see your not going to do just long slow runs  you need that leg turn over speed

MG1 Thats a good MP run mate just you wait after doing one every week or so how easy it will become

SC some good sessions and gym work thrown in, hope the Achilles settles down

Gaz take care in the next couple of weeks and don't push the pace too soon, if you do the Parkrun every week the speed will come it's a strange distance I like to go out hard and try and hold on to the pace rather than ease into it but its each to there own. As for going for the Sub 3 for you thats a minute a mile faster over the 26 miles and the Parkruns will help with the leg turn over and speed well worth doing.

SM6 well done on the intervals, P&D is good but you can change it to suit you 13 miles mid week MLR is ok the LT run builds and on paper looks bloody hard work deep into the plan but as you build up to it its hard but not impossible. Well done on the 8 tonight and close to that 2000 miles 

Swim only on Monday, 72x25m yesterday and a 6 mile Fartlek which I enjoyed. today was an easy swim 40x25m and 6 miles easy, tomorrow is swim only and a massage bit of a mini taper for the race on Saturday.

OH not like you to wimp out, you swim in the sea in winter BBBBrrrrrrrrrr. But well done with yesterdays 12 miles

SC yep winter has arrived great running for the 5 in sleet, 8 in light snow and todays 6 for 30 for the week

Gaz great running for your 3:25:41 and 85th place from the race report it sounds like a great off road marathon with some great views, all the hard work in training paid off if you still felt strong at the end

Teknik  well done with the club run yesterday, seems everywhere is wet or cold 

MG1 Well done on your MLR again in the cold hopefully work for you will ease up a little and you can get back into your routine.

HM4 hopefully if you can get out twice a week your race times will improve

SM6 welcome back to the cold...... and well done on the long run in it thats also great miles pre marathon base training

Well Parkrun with warm up and cool down yesterday not that it took much to cool down, even ran the Parkrun in gloves and hat BBBBrrrrr...... for 17:06 and a nice 10.44 miles this morning at 7:15 pace. going to take an easy week before next weekends race so will do a few shorter runs but with strides in this week.

SM6 well done on the weeks running and hills

SM6 Some nice hill running and walking at altitude  you will be flying when you get back.

Teknik thats a good MLR in the middle of a week sounds like you got to meet Barney as well.

HM4 you doing anything?

MG1 well done in getting out for the run and gym session hopefully back to normal soon.

NN your legs will soon come round, well done for getting out and getting the runs done on them. Like you said the next one will be a piece of cake. Think the only way to get better at the down hill would be to do sessions on them i.e. walk up hill sprint down hill. Regarding the hard up hills again it would be just practice. But make sure your not followed by that guy looking at you bum lol

Gaz nice that the taper madness is coming to an end for you and your last run is bagged. Run strong in the race, looking forward to the race report.

After yesterday mornings swim I bumped into Barney on my run, seems he turned out the lights and brought his mates Bloody windy and Heavy rain with him to meet me. Not great conditions, but 8 miles banked. 64x25m front crawl this morning run later.

SM6 Well done on beating the hill

NN great photos and reminds me of the Race over the Glens on the 1st Jan, but that guy couldn't take his eyes off your bum lol  Some people can just let go and fly down the hills. Hope the legs are starting to feel better

MG1 great hill session for you and nice miles banked pre marathon training, I will start adding more miles come January

Gaz nice short taper run not long now

SC nice running and gym session

40x25m front crawl easy swim yesterday and 6 easy miles on the trails 70x25m front crawl this morning out later for a run

Some great training in the changing weather, on Thursday I did my normal swim and set off for my run with the dog in the car and about 3/4 of a mile away from the forest was hit by what I can only describe as a wall of water. Ive seen down pours before in the USA and here but nothing quite like this so I turned round and came back home and two seconds from car to house and I was soaked to the skin and so was the dog. Friday was a swim and 6 miles with strides and yesterday with the legs feeling fresh we did 17:17 at the Parkrun so the hilly efforts in the forest are starting to pay off. Out with the group this morning for a MLR full winter gear on here. Garmin update!!!! ever since the update I can't sync my watch with my phone gggrrrrrrr......

SM6 The doubles are worth it and if you build them in slowly will give you a massive boost.

NN good luck today run strong.

OH nice running in the breeze.

MG1 nice running soon be time to start the plan.

Tekkie well done dodging the traffic.

SC nice hill sessions.

Gaz nice running on the trails.

Easy Auto correct.......... Welcome Never done it but I would have thought there was a bag drop so you will have your bag to pick up at the end.

SM6 lol @ the shouldn't be left alone You know Manchester makes sense  nice training session with the chicks (NN no comment) I think you should run the half at MP and add a couple of easy miles before and after it.....

OH friends did Manchester this year and said it was a great marathon to target a PB.

SC nice training over the past few days, two good books did you read the Hanson book from cover to cover? as if you add on all the warm up and cool down runs you find that a lot of runs are in the 20 mile range. I think we all take what suits us from these books and thats what makes it interesting.  But I love working to a plan even if I can't complete it 100%.

Gaz nice running.

MG7 glad your keeping on top of the injury

NN lol at you out drinking with the young ones Think I would still be ill.... Good luck this weekend with the off road race You will blast it.

Tekkie nice few days of steady running and as always on the ball with the Months races

Well Tuesday was 70x25m front crawl and 7 miles on the trails with efforts on some of the hills. Yesterday was a run only of just over 8 miles on the trails. Missed the swim due to attending a meeting on fund raising for the WPFG 2017 in Canada. Did 60x25m front crawl this morning due to schools getting into the pool early. Winter has turned up here very cold, wet and windy. Will get out later for 6 easy miles. The reason I have been building up the swimming is that its not a shock starting running twice on a Tuesday and Thursday come the new year. This worked well last year and I'm hoping it will work again this year
