NN great running and a nice MLR banked

MG1 great running enjoy the holiday and warm weather running

DDave nice running and also great that the lady off FB stopped and gave you a lift home

Trici nice treadmill recovery running. Nice to find out about the fenix 3 and treadmill, the 2 is the same

Teknik nice 15 miles yesterday followed up with a good session today and another great weeks training.

OH the Gloup looks like a great place for a swim, and love the fact that an Orca followed the rib. I saw one many years ago diving off Ratlin Island AMSOME.

Gaz well done on the half PB 

Did the Parkrun yesterday managed 18:06 with heavy legs and did just over 14 miles this morning with a nice climb from mile 4 just over 1,000 feet, legs very heavy now  Bike out tomorrow weather permitting.

NN Fantastic running and a great big new PB over the moon for you X

MG1 nice running and think you had a good day at the cricket 

SM6 hope you had a dry run today/night.

Tekkie nice running 11.5miles

70x25m front crawl, trying to increase the lactate level now by swimming a good few lengths at speed, a bit like an interval session with jog recoveries, not easy but hoping over the next month to get my 750m time down by a minute. This afternoon did a 6 mile hilly tempo run. Tomorrow is swim and bike

MG1 nice easy run followed by a good core session

SM6 nice running yesterday and today  did it rain?

Teknik good running mate, don't over do the end of the week

Well with three Triathlons looming I had a nice day of a test swim in the pool 30x25m in 15:19 and 30 mins on the turbo trainer this afternoon, intention is to use the turbo trainer a few time between now and the last Triathlon which is in September.

SM6 nice running and swimming, I know doing drills in the pool help big style, Like the plan for the weeks running but you might find that the Tempo session becomes a steady run this happens to me and if you can just add strides at the end if it happens

MG1 nice running and would be great if that was your marathon pace in April your tempos are going to get faster when your legs are over the Ultra

Trici I have the Fenix 2 and its a great job but can't set it up for a triathlon with a pool swim. Like the fact that I just sync it straight to the phone Battery is good but have had a few runs where i have lost the sat signal and then it just went mad. P&D is great for marathon training.

SC thats a great mix of cross training and the running will come back sooner with it

Teknik well done on the run today, must be cool if your missing the sun

70x25m front crawl and a nice hilly tempo run in the 30 seconds of sunshine that we got here today before the heavens opened, I have a friend who has started to build an ark Missing the heat and sun here.

Trick nice report well done on getting round

DDave Dublin is a nice marathon even with the course change last year, know a few people all ready doing mid week 15 mile runs for it along with long runs at the weekend.

NN nice short double with the gym work

Teknik can't beat the strides for adding a bit extra speed

park run was done with the dog, two water stops and two swims in the pond during the run Just a swim this morning 70x25m front crawl.

Clive welcome what is your age and training back ground? There are a number of plans around from 12 weeks to 24 weeks if your just starting out the longer the plan the better as you will build in the adaptations to your body needed to get round 26.2 miles. Even after 13/14 marathons the body will still adapt in a different way depending what your after, fast times or just getting round.

MG1 nice running and you will be fine for the marathon as all that long stuff will help, just need to add some speed now and get back to the longer runs

OH that made my eyes water, thankfully I haven't suffered from anything like that, hope you managed to get out for a swim.

Teknik nice MP running hope the ribs are feeling a lot better.

72x25m front crawl and a nice 6 miles around the forest with the pup. All good here.

NN great running off road  it will build great strength in the legs for the Crosscountry season as for VLM I paid to do it and properly will, but will do the Crosscountry as part of the training.

Teknik nice 8 mile run, hope the ribs are ok after your 4 miles

Craigie welcome, think the training will help the type 2.

Trici  I still think I can improve on some of my times, so never say never To more speed adding the Parkrun and the willingness to hurt over a shorter distance will improve all your running

Did a short swim yesterday but didn't go to the race, the dog gave me a look and I caved in and took him up to the forest and did a hilly tempo run. Today I swam 74x25m front crawl and did a hilly easy 7.6miles, all good here and Buddy is happy
