Ollie well done on the long run and big miles before you even start P&D

Dr Dan managed to watch the Leeds Triathlon live on TV and fantastic results both for Yorkshire and the Brownlee Brothers. Well done yourself on the swim and bike and a nice run to finish Not been in the water for near on two weeks as I hurt my shoulder on a run when I fell down a hole putting my arm out to stop myself. But hope to change that later this week when I'm away for a week to the sun.

Teknik nice jog in the rain and a nice 47 miles for the week.

HM4 Any running?

Nice easy 6 miles run in the morning mist here

Lots of reading back and some great training taking place even double day training

Hope the races went well yesterday and Dr Dan today in the Triathlon at Leeds.

Just one comment Sub 17 thats a massive positive  split if you went out slower in the first half you would stay strong to the end and finish with a faster time.

Lots of child minding the grandchildren here but still ran, 17:18 Parkrun yesterday and a nice 16 miles today  VLM FGFA Confirmed and paid for

DR Dan nice mix of Tri training, I must get back into the pool next week and start to get the bike out now most of the garden is finished off Might even get a open water swim in today. Nice 10k trail race and you will soon be a grumpy old man 

SM6 nice few days of training and good 1&2k reps

Teknik nice easy running, Ive got to fit some of that in 

Ollie enjoy the cakes and have a good Park run.

Just over 8 miles on the trails yesterday went off to find some new routes that can only be run in the summer 99.9% of the garden done now waiting on grass to grow (day 5 now of watering) Heading up the coast for the day and hope to get a sea swim in (OH I will have my Tri suit on as its too cold)

Ollie lol I now have a vision of you eating a cake every mile nice way to carb load well done on the miles for the month.

MG1 Great running and upping the miles a bit, take care of the IT band, day 4 of watering the grass seed's started and awaiting the first blade to pop up

SC nice running, keep using the foam roller on the legs

Cal well done on the run, sounds like you have our weather

OH Great running and well done on another PB and for getting one over on Morag. Great medal haul

Teknik nice running with the club at MP 

Yellow nice running and cycling in France, looks like the weather is very poor there at the moment.

Well 5 mile race last night, after two races on Saturday and Sunday I thought I would take a couple of days off running and work in the garden so 6 tonnes of top soil laid down and grass seed now getting watered  Still felt the weekends races in the legs a little, went out at 5:40 pace and was a little too fast for the heat second mile came in at 5:44. The guy I thought would win my age group came on to my shoulder then passed me as I started to slow and drop the pace mile 3 came in at 6:07 and I then started to up the pace a little more mile 4 was 5:54 I managed to maintain the gap between us and held on for second place in the category mile 5, 6:03 and 29:43 finish time. This was nearly 1 minute down on last year but think this is more the effect of the weekend races than anything else.

SM6 Great racing and great report, Think the fact that you tried to chase down your club mate kept you focused and it's great to see you hitting a massive PB. Thankfully like you said you didn't fall flat on your face at the end Think you just have to stay positive and go for it in the marathon just don't go out too fast Nice slow run and gym session yesterday.

Ollie  92.1 mile is big milage, doing four weeks of 90+ miles broke me, take care. Enjoy the cut back week.

NN glad that the  little 'crick ' in you ankle is sorted Move up in August.

OH great PB sir and also well done on the 13.2 miles

SC sorry your race didn't go to plan

Teknik well done with the training

Sunday was the last of the club handicap races and I wasn't looking forward to this having race the 10k the day before. 5 miles on some of the road that where in the 10k race. Starting second to last I managed to work my way up to 3rd place and was no where near the winner. Legs felt very heavy after the race so decided to make the most of the wonderful weather we are having here and work in the garden so no running on Monday or today and have a 5 mile race tomorrow night. legs feeling better.
