LMH - rotten news, I feel for you.  It has always been my knee that has caused me problems - always cartilage related.  Are you allowed to x-train/bike?  I was, and it kept me sane (or at least less mad than if I had done nothing at all!), I remember a 3 hour x-training session with great fondness.  Not. 

Strating my taper for Sunday's Chester Marathon - pretty certain I'm not in sub3 shape due to a lack of MP/race-pace work, so it won't be pretty.

All this serious quality training and racing going on - I'm not worthy.

Excellent weekend as an ambassador for Brooks working up at Loch Ness marathon.  All expenses paid, and a wheelbarrow full of free kit to boot. 

Alan - I once did 26.2M on a tready in 3.00.45.  Helluva boring.

Another 20M commute run.  I feel a lunchtime nap may be required.

Ultra (50km) Backpack of choice?

Entirely depends on the terrain/weather conditions, mandatory kitlist, how long you expect to run, how much fluid/nutrition you'll expect to want during the race.  Number of checkpoints/dropbag facilities.  Personally, I've done 50k's before with nothing apart from water at checkpoints.  Even with that advice in mind, you won't know how comfortable any model is until you've actually tried it on, so go into a shop and try a few on.

Joolska - only 600ft of climbing?  Pah!  This was on last weekend, and some pals did it - hardest thing they've ever done by all accounts.

Good return TT.  Have followed the developments with interest.

Excellent parkrunning RS.

After my nippy 400s, thought I'd give a flat parkrun a blast to see where I was - got tripped in the first lap, stayed on my feet, but rythym was gone, and struggled to regain my pace for another half lap, pushed on in last lap to overtake a few, and got 18.20.  A bit disappointed.  so did a bit more to give me 9M total at 7.00s

Garmin Connect suggests the fast bits were 5min/M ave, with the last one 4.10 pace.  Better than I expected.

TR!!!  Luvya big guy - stay strong.

Very nippy paces going around.  Not sure mine can compete but last night was 10x400 with 400m jog - not sure what paces I was doing in the fast bits, but finished the session (5M in 32.30) and the jogs were SLOW.

Short double for me today - 30min easy before breaky and a hilly lunchtime 5M.

LMH - very handy indeed. 

Wardi - you're bananas

CW - legs were gubbed for the rest of the day to be fair.  Funnily enough, dentist today here too - cracked tooth and emergency treatment.  The needles and prodding and pulling don't really make me up for much running.

LMH - a bit of both.  I don't do the same run back though.  That would just be silly.  Door-to-door is 13M, so occasionally do 13+13, but more often than not, I lift share with another runner of similar standard, so we split the run in/back with alternating the drive.

Impressive racing, well done on the PBs, wins and random fruit prizes.

Another week of plodding, highlight (as noted by some already via the viewers of fb) was a course PB and first finisher at a tough local parkrun (arguably the hardest/slowest in Scotland) whilst the middle of a 13.  It's a 3 lapper, and I was taking it easy as a mp effort section, so only turned on the afterburners in the last half mile to take about 20secs out of the guy ahead.

Nowt else to report apart from a pre-work 21M commute.
