MG1 nice Park run and miles before and after with another nice 6 miles in the sun today

Teknik well done on the 4 miles

Cal well raced and don't worry about the Garmin they can be + or - out over any distance wait till you get the results in. But it's all looking good for a PB

Yellow good luck with the race.

SC nice running hope the 10 today went well.

Ollie there are 52 turns on the Park run It's Carrickfergus in Northern Ireland if you want to have a look, one turn is 180 degrees and up a short hill. Enjoy your run.

Sub 17 Have you ever run a half or full marathon before? whats your age and whats your weekly milage?

Personalise your vest   I have used you before for t-shirts for the WPFG and always very happy with the service and quality at a very good price.

Well ran and marked up the clubs second trail race which is taking place on Tuesday night so around 10 miles done in total as we ran it three times and all in the sun

Some nice running going on and coffee drinking Hope all the races go to plan I was tempted to race 4 miles last night but the legs still felt a little heavy  from the cross country so gave it a miss. Have been doing a bit in the garden but rain stopped play at 2pm yesterday Hope to get more done when the weather settles down again. Went to the Park run this morning and ran 17:37 so happy enough with that the sun even came out Back to more rain now, hope that wasn't summer

SM6 thats a good couple of days training and gym work enjoy the MLR tomorrow

HM4 Well done on the race and report you should aim to do a Park run every week.

Ollie nice long run and naked  nice to run on feel alone. Hope you managed to enjoy more sun during the rest of the day. Well done on the 1000+ miles for the year.

SM6 your right I think the first mile yesterday was a little on the fast side Out today for a nice 10 miles and like Ollie it started cold and finished with a little heat.

Lots of reading back some great training and racing go on in the heat and rain, nice to see HM4 getting a couple of miles done and Ollie great race report and photo but I think your shorts are red not pink Had a number of issues with my car this week the garage that had supposedly done my breaks last weekend only did the front and it failed its MOT took it to another place and was horrified to see the state of the back brakes anyway all sorted now but it stopped me getting out on Wednesday so did my normal 6 on Thursday and a easy 4 with strides yesterday. Will target 17:45-17:30 in the Parkrun this morning.

MG enjoy the Cotswolds Hilly 100m is it on a loop?
HM4 Enjoy the Somewhere South 2m run. 
OH Good luck with the Cape Wrath Half should have great views in the sunshine.
DR DAN enjoy the John Carr 5k  run eyeballs out.

SM6 nice 15 miles I don't see anything wrong in doing them at that pace mate

OH well done on your loop nice to get some sun looks like you have lots more of it today

HM4 every other day is good just up the distance a bit

Teknik go easy if you have the cold/cough/flu bug again 

Tricilitt hope the ribs are fine after your fall on the 5 mile run, nice list of races

Yellow did you suck in the gut and puff out the chest when you ran past her nice effort over the 8 miles.

Ollie well done on the 3 miles in the heat

Cal nice 6 miles of mixed speed work the Parkruns help with getting more speed into the legs.

SC nice 8 miles with some LT thrown in enjoy the easy run and gym tonight.

Dr Dan nice race report and well done on the 1:34 sounds like you paced it very well not getting passed in the last 4 miles All you have to do is get some good swim sessions in now

6 miles on the trails this morning as my club is putting on the first of four races tonight and will be helping out at that so no club session. So did a steady/tempo run for the six miles splits: 7:17, 6:03, 7:00, 6:05, 7:00, 6:16 first bit of speed since VLM and legs feeling good.
