Marders can do one.  That's just ridiculous mileage.  I think he will become really very tasty at ultra/100k race distance, and fancy some records to tumble. 

PP, ES, SC - whippersnappers (we haven't heard that word on here for a while)

Joolska - that's my normal pace at the moment.

Last night's GRL didn't go exactly to plan.  About a mile jog down, met a few faces I knew, got a brief overview of the course, and off we went - basically it's an out and back course, 2 laps, flat, but in total 8 x 90 degree corners, and 4 x 180 degree turns, so IMO not exactly a fast course.  Legs didn't really want to play early on, and had been having tummy issues during the day, and suffered a nasty stitch.  Watch time was 19.48, but the way they work their timing is very different to parkrun (get a wristband by registering and you tap your wristband against a timing app on a mobile phone), so officially another 7 secs on top of that.  Pretty disgusted tbh, not with the organisation, only myself.  Plodded 6M home inc an emergency pit-stop.  Ewwww!

CW - just as well, I didn't want to go looking for that 64-8

ES - what's a cutback week?

12 miles this am with 8x 800 thrown in, all sub 3mins.  Still got a jog home to do for a decent day's work. 

Going to try the rival to parkrun tomorrow - Great Run Local - since it's near my new office.  1 M w/u, 5k blast, 6M jog home.  Not expecting anything great.

CW - I expected nothing less, so well done.  And I do hope you have authority

Gobi - less wheels, more feet.

Joolska - that's a lovely back-to-back session, well done.

Jooligan - good TM effort

CC - BLING!!! Well done.

Padams - good XCing.

Have already seen the BM results from a few, not Wardi though, sensibly eased back.  I assume no bad boy drinking with the usual alkys?


21M for me yesterday - dead slow pace, legs not up for it, and carrying a bit of a hip flexor/glute niggle.  80+ week.

Been a bit of a crazy period at work for those doing their returns, hence my absence.

Nice XC-ing, racing and training going on.

Nowt to report here - sneaky first finisher at the hilly parkrun last week, only 15 secs outside my course PB, which was pleasantly surprising given my lack of any speedwork whatsoever.  First 20 of the campaign rounded off a 80mile week.  Currently on 55M so far, a decent long run will get me back to 80 again.

Belated Xmas and NY wishes to one and all.

Some marvellous racing going on, with the usual wins happening - pats on the back to one and all.

Bog all to report expect I am fat, and getting slower, thanks to the homemade mince pies from the M-I-L (Wardi - I too bought 3 boxes, and still have 3 boxes.  Will save them for next year!).

Mileage stats copied from a fb post that some may have seen. 

445 different runs
3276 miles
416 hours
Average pace 7.52 per mile
3 marathons (a couple of sub 3's, but by far the most fun was at Windermere with Njord and LS21 as part of my stag weekend)
3 ultras (Perth 50k, the Fling, and Clyde Stride)
A few 10ks, and 33 parkruns (including my only pb of the year, 17.54)

BTW - I ran every day last year, and am STILL to have a rest day!

Superb reports Dan and Ryan - sounds a lonely course, so well raced! 

Nothing really to report here, just banging more commute miles in - 5 doubles last week, a short recovery run pacing at a parkrun (target 22, ended 21.54), and an almost 18 on Sunday to give 85ish for the week.  Legs getting used the mileage again.

Been offline last few days, seems I've missed a fair bit. 

Some superb racing over marathon, xc and parkrun distances.

Getting my body used to this double commute running again - 3 doubles last week, interrupted with a midweek Xmas do, followed by hangover, so 1 way run only.  Long-ish of 15 on Sunday to give 75ish for the week.  This week so far - 9+5, 10+5, 6+5, with a 20 planned for Sunday.  No speed at all, mostly 8min/miling with a backpack.
