Teknik well done on the treadmill effort and great stats for the month.

SC think the 1:40 for the half is very doable for you, strides help turn the legs over again after longer runs and easy running another good month of running done.

MG7 Well done with the walking its going to make your return easier

OH great running sir and well done on bagging a 22

Well woke up this morning full of green stuff head cold still with me, but once I have had a good blow out I feel fine. Walked the dog in near blizzard conditions wind/snow..... before I went for my swim 72x25m front crawl, will do my core work out soon. Going to take a bit of a cut back week this week which should help recharge a little.

SM6 well done for getting out and getting the 20 banked Also great that there is an improvement NN should be off your back now till next week Like the sub 1:30 goal, slight cut back this week and set out the stall for the sub 1:30

MG1 nice running and 10-15@ MP next week would be good great stats for the month.

20.5 miles here banked 2:29 on feet Stats for the Month:  286 miles @ avg pace of 7:18, also 11.6 miles swimming. Going to take a little cut back week for the 5 mile race next Saturday, first cut back week this year think the old legs need it

SM6 there is no valid reason why you cant get that 20 done ! unless you are injured or a wimp  SM6 again We are all looking forward to hearing about your 20  after all its just 3 hours or so out of your life ! whats that ? nothing.

Think NN is picking on you SM6.

OH great running sir and a nice double day in the wind.

MG1 great running in the wind, its not easy be worth the effort

SC glad the Achilles is no worse and your able to run on it

NN great hills, hills, hills session on an easy day with the evil one, enjoy the MLR with the bro.

Dank-art welcome 30-34 is not massive miles per week, after your massage I would ease back into what you have been doing but drop the intervals and just do the miles.

Well 72x25m front crawl yesterday and core work, nice 9 mile tempo hills this morning in near blizzard conditions, like MG1 I can't wait to run in warm weather again. out later for a steady 6 miles.

Was away yesterday so a little catching up and back reading

SM6 well done on the park run yesterday and well done with making it up to well over 7 miles.

Joe hope you managed to pace your mate round. always enjoy pacing for others to PB

MG1 another great 20 banked in poor conditions and a nice run today with great totals for the week

Teknik nice running after your 20 yesterday and well done on todays effort and another good weeks running, on the run today we talked about running with and without gadgets, one of the fellas ran with us as no one turned up for his group and with no Garmin he had no idea how well he was running until the end and was well surprised that not only did he run so fast but how well he felt.

OH sea swim followed by a run, sir your a man of steel

SC sounds like the body pump is helping out nicely with the running the roller will help with the achilles.

NN that was a great track session you did and followed up with a good 6 miles  yesterday  Hope the 21 mile run went well. As for the 55 year old I think the cross over from the cycling works well Fiona is a great example of this from last years marathon also the strength work he is doing will stop muscle wastage that us old folk suffer from  the 1:22 half I did in the summer on low fast milage came as a shock to me as it was only 3 mins shy of my PB. We all need to mix it up or every run just becomes the same.

Trici well done for going out for 3 hours the weather here today was nasty and I wasn't out as long as you. Hope you warm up soon and a massive well done on the 17 miles.

Well went down to my son and daughter in law early yesterday morning, driving down in the sleet and snow having spent 20min scraping the ice off the car. We arrived and then set off for the Parkrun which is on a trail, Wendy and I did a warm up just as it started to snow she showed me about 70% of the course which is two laps with a very steep incline the section I didn't get to see was the muddy part at the back of a manor house. Well some people thought it was strange to see a guy running with a dog and a few young lads asked if the Buddy was fast Two or three people got the jump on us at the start but after about 50 yards we where at the front, there is a out and back section just after the start and after going around a cone we where heading back along the track with 98 other runners coming in the other direction, Buddy slowed like never before and didn't like this but we where on one side and everyone passed on the other side. Back in to the open Buddy started to run again and down the steep incline I had to hold him back sit was so steep. We started to climb and this section is a big fig 8 without crossing in the middle and on to the muddy section, three or four steps in slipping and sliding and I nearly lost a shoe. The lace started to come undone but I just carried on, second lap was very similar to the first but only passing two or three people in the other direction on the out and back section. The last section is on tarmac and a race for the line, my Garmin said 17:37 and so did the Parkrun so setting another course record We carried on and did a warm down l
