SM6 nice 20 mile run as Jason said that don't need to be pretty and a good weeks training and stats for the month, I think your still better than a 10 second PB, books now open and nice that your planning a couple of races

Jason thats a great long run with some very nice splits, but funny how we dread these but feel fine once we have a couple of miles under the belt. Looks to me like your in great shape seven weeks out

MG1 nice steady run for you and again great stats for the week and month just keep it bubbling 

Teknik well done with the 20 miles banked and again great total for the week and month

Up and down my hill so just over 13 miles banked here and a light weight with only 38 for the week and 163 for the month avg 7:07 pace and 13 miles swam. But happy with all that been pain free 

Doing the Laganside 10k next Sunday and the Belfast Half the following week and the Stenaline Triathlon the week after would like to get close to my 10k PB and under 1:25 for the half if all goes well.

Well after the swim this morning we went and had coffee and some shopping and when I got changed to go out for an easy run Buddy saw me in my shorts and trainers so the easy session turned into 4 miles with Buddy/interval training/from around a mile to 400m. Followed by 2 miles easy on my own. Legs heavy at the end but ok after taking him out for his run. Rest day tomorrow with just a swim.

Rest day on Monday and race last night 

Welcome Dansky and Londonrunner.

HM4 you could have fitted in another run with arriving for the show early

Teknik sounds like the kettle bell training was tough different bits been used but if you keep at it the body always finds out how to adapt

Fiona sounds like you had a great day with the touring cars and a great 17+ mile run and a nice double day for you with the interval session

Jason another great double days training mate.

dsrf well done with the 20+ mile run and recovery run


SC well done with the swimming drills and ice bucket challenge good luck with swimming with the tri club it will bring you on lots.

Dansky well done with the hill session, love hills

MG1 nice running mate good luck with the weight loss

MG7 well done on the bike sir

OH get it done you humbug did it after my MLR on Sunday nice way to cool down

Well Monday was a rest day and yesterday I was back into the pool for the first time in well over a week and due to this and having a race last night all I did was a very easy 750m front crawl. Last night was the Antrim Shield which is an inter club race, a very big turn out with 300 runners and is 5 mile with the first 2.5 miles down hill. I know I'm ok over 3 miles but was not sure if I had it in the legs for a longer run, at the half way point at this out and back race there was a sea of blue running vests. The club was dominating the mens race with the first six counting I found the last half mile hard with the final push to the line coming in 17th and 12th for the club had two teams counted the club would have had both teams on the rostrum. The Ladies did 4 miles setting off at the same time as the men but turning round after two miles and again the Ladies won there event, so a great night for the club.

MG7 nice bike and run, good splits I ran around Central Park in New York and fell in love with the Park, I have never seen so many people out training. There are two lanes one in each direction and then there is a bike lane, on the Sunday I did two laps with the marathon training groups from NYRR and they had water stations, gatoraid stations and toilets set up and I have never been cheered on before on a training run just fantastic.

Jason great running as always mate love the easy 15m in 1:46, think the jet lag is just about over for me

Fiona nice running last night, Buddy has not stopped fussing around me

MG1 nice running mate especially after a days travelling, hate the old

OH nice running last night

NN great double day for you, did you go on to work? posting at 01:43 or have you got jet lag as well? We where away to New York.

SC well done with the swimming and run I'm sure you will make great improvements with the swimming having lessons I'm looking forward to getting back into the pool on Monday.

dsrfcno1 hope the 20 goes to plan and welcome.

Teknik nice MLR today but can you please ask for some warm weather

HM4 you getting any running done?

Well out with my little black and white training mate "Buddy" 4 miles nice speedy run to stretch the legs 3rd and 4th miles with plenty of breaks for water and the toilet. He is looking forward to the Parkrun tomorrow.
