SC great PB look forward to race report

AGF Good luck with the house extension next week and hope you are able to get out lots.

HM4 Hope your run went ok.

Well went to Parkrun this morning with Buddy who was eager to get going even before I put him into the car, first again in 18:11 and that was with two stops, garmin gives 17:57 with a 12 second stop which was to give Buddy a drink of water after each mile.

Anyone know how to deal with a toe nail that is now 3/4 off, I stubbed my big toe about two weeks back and last Sunday after my run, my toe was sore again the nail went all white but after todays run it had lifted about 3/4 off a little sore but not sure if I should just leave it or pull it off?

MG1 nice running sounds like you had perfect conditions for your run.

SC nice running and swimming, come Saturday you will be fine mate.

SM6 Thats a good midweek MLR

Fiona well done on the running and garden High knees and on the toes pitter patter up the hills Got a few cleg bites this year more than any other year I can remember... Bet your looking forward to running in the sun We are going to New York over our birthdays and Ive just found out New York Runners hold long runs in Central Park on a Sunday These cost $15 and water, and gator aid is supplied so thats my Sunday morning taken care of next weekend Also looking at 2:09 for a week in March what date do you normally go?

Hi Kaz

OH nice running and sunburn hope it's not to sore, uphill swimming is trying to go up the waterfall

Teknik nice running mate looks like you got your rain from the forecast 

MG7 well done on the bike, how did you get on with the run and swim? Drills are lengths where you work on different parts of the stroke which improve your swimming overall. If you do drills you will improve faster than just swimming lengths. If you just swim lengths your not working on improving your technique. Catch up, Zipper,Finger drag, Kick board are just a few, you can find these on youtube.

Just a swim yesterday, was back in the garden laying paving stones yesterday afternoon so didn't run as a result, I have swam this morning and will get out with the pup later to stretch the legs for the Parkrun tomorrow. All good here

HM4 well done on the run, you should try and run a few more days each week.

Fiona nice interval work when do you go to your camp? Did you manage to get any garden work done?

sm6 glad to hear your feeling better enjoy your MLR tomorrow.

MG1 nice running and core work, now my back has settled down I need to start the core work again.

AGF Nice weeks training with some good MLR in there

SC enjoy your Glasgow running.

OH another great photo.

MG7 I started swimming a couple of years ago to do a Tri and was crap at it, but having done a large number of drills my stroke has improved and swimming a mile is a lot easier than it used to be and faster. I would recommend drills rather than lengths to anyone starting out as you will make much faster progress. I swim 5 days a week now and between 40 to 64 lengths (1km/1mile) When I start training for the next marathon this will be cut back to three times a week and runs replacing a swim. So I will be running twice on those days. Well done with the 50+ miles on the bike.

Teknik nice running at MP and nice to see your happy with your HR. All looking good

1 mile swim and 8.3 miles with a hill  swim and short and fast with the pup tomorrow
