Cal Well done on the progressive 10k run, good luck with the race on Saturday.

Teknik nice to see you keeping the strides in your runs, great for leg turn over

Double run day today so just over 5.5 miles on the trails and a pyramid session with the club tonight. Happy with the way the training is going at this stage. MLR tomorrow and a swim.

Hazelnut well done on the run in the snow thankfully you didn't hurt yourself when you fell

Fiona glad you are feeling better and you went well in the last two marathons with all the bike work plus the running. Nice to get some easy miles in , nice 11 miles 

SM6 nice training hope the long run goes to plan tomorrow

Tricialitt well done on the treadmill running enjoy the skiing

Teknik well done on the milage for the week well and truly off the bench now

OH nice 6.5 miles and swim

Sub 17 well done with the treadmill running and rowing.

SC enjoy the massage and hope the Achilles is ok.

Today was 70x25m front crawl and a trail run of 7.5 miles the run was fine but didn't end well. About 50m from the end/car park two guys where walking and then let there Alsatian and Rottweiler off the lead. They immediately attacked Buddy, I love animals but these two where vicious, I don't think they expected me to react the way I did. Both dogs yelped away and I don't think they will come near me again or Buddy. But one of the guys shouted leave my dogs alone and as I turned round took a swing at me with his chain/lead. Thankfully this missed me and he got a mouthful of me, Buddy wasn't himself all afternoon but he has come round now.

Fiona hope you are feeling better and your run went ok with no strange after effects. The weather here was fine first thing the only problem I had was my garmin went flat, my own fault for not charging it.

Cal did you not run your long run as a group, if not it's not very nice people running off on you, well done on the 11 miles with muddy hills.

Legs a little on the heavy side this morning but nice to get the first real long run in for VLM 18 miles @ 7:29 pace and just over 70 miles for the week

SM6 thats some great training hope the XC went well.

Fiona well done on the cold weather training I hope the knee is ok and your long run went ok.

Sub 17 another nice parkrun.

OH thats a nice bounce back and 10 miles banked in very poor weather.

Tricialitt enjoy the skiing, not enough snow here for it

Teknik nice 13.6m banked and again in poor conditions.

Took the dog out for a walk last night and both of us struggled to stay on our feet and was a little like that this morning for his walk. I has a club XC handicap race 6 miles, after my warm up my feet where like ice and soaked the course was very muddy and zapped the legs. Managed to over take a few and came 4th so happy with the progress from the last XC race Long run tomorrow.

Hazelnut nice weeks training, if the snow is deep enough I can go on the trails around the forest skiing  but sadly its not at the moment.

Teknik glad you managed to get out before the sleet.

Just a swim and dog walking here today so 70x25m front crawl.

Fiona hope you're OK after the wobble, trust me nothing can be worse than what happened to me last year. I will tell you about it some time. Fingers crossed you got out for a run or went on the treadmill the weather here is getting worse hail, sleet and now snow and very windy. Ski's at the ready

OH get well soon.

Teknik that is two good sessions with the club, nice intervals and MLR. a Few weeks of that and you will be flying.

Cal I only eat toast and jam before a race or marathon and can't do porridge anymore, well done on the progressive run. Full on winter here

SM6 mmmm tee shirt and shorts weather not lol......hope the MLR went ok.

Tricialitt enjoy the rest of the holiday and nice treadmill running.

Intervals with the club was hill repeats, yesterday was 70x25m front crawl and 12 miles in the snow/sleet and bloody wind. Today was an easy 6 miles followed by a 6 mile farther session tonight. Miles are building

Hazelnut nice miles, if we get snow this week my cross country ski's are coming out I managed a few days last year and the year before.

Cuthbury ditto what the others have said, the idea of the long run is to build up stamina this is on top of your faster than marathon stuff like the lasso 800's which build up the speed. Don't try and run your long runs at marathon pace or you won't be able to do the speed work during the rest of the week. A few auld people on here

SM6 Well done on the intervals and long run after the sleep in hope the back is ok mate.

Fiona thats another great session and a nice double day done and dusted, yep looks like winter is here........

Tricialitt well done on the treadmill and get the ski's out

Teknik well done for getting out in the rain

Cal not easy running when you feel tired, always takes me a couple of miles to get into any run.

Yesterday was 70x25m front crawl and 7.5 miles in the rain, wind and cold so back to normal. This morning was a very easy 4 miles in the same weather..... tonight is club night and should be 8 miles with 8x800 of 60 seconds.

SC well done on the 8 miles today and nice miles for the week

Teknik nice 10 miles banked mate and another nice week of miles

Fiona thats still a nice run and mega miles on the bike

Think the neck is down to a draft/sleeping in an awkward position. Hopefully tomorrows swim will sort it out. 63.2 miles for the week on wards and up wards
