CW, Bains.

It's Seville in three weeks. I haven't altered diet or anything else after switching to high mileage - except that I've been eating quite a few scones which are my favourite!

CW - Sounds very much like a little break will do you the world of good.

Dan A - Very envious of your La Santa exploits. Nice HM as well.

Jools - Nice XC'ing and bling.

Had a minor change of plan this week; the idea was to do 112 again but somehwere around 7:00/mile. Early in the week it was clear that the 'easy' runs were feeling too hard and I was beginning to feel run down/low on mojo so decided to put in some more miles in at the same pace as last week. Felt much better after a day or two and finished with 120 miles @ 7:04. Biggest week ever.
One more big week before starting to taper a bit towards the back end of the week after next.

If anyone wants an entry for the Wokingham Half I have one going spare. Completely forgot I'd entered it and a number appeared in the post. It's on the same day as Seville!!

TT - Nothing wrong with a bit of Steve Jones training - simple and effective!

CW - Excellent trouser running and clearly inspired CJeff!

Selbs - Sounds like you're getting back to fitness nicely. Plenty of time and all that.

Jools - Nice reps

CC2 - Sounds like a decent Jan Parkrun to me

Which marathon is it Wardi?

Sounds like an impressive Duathlon there CD

Business as usual for me this week - 112 @ 7:05/mile. Struggled a bit at the start of the week after the Stubby 10k effort but things improved a lot over the last few days.

Two more really big weeks that will hopefully sneak under 7:00 avg.

Four weeks until Seville!

Al_P - Be prepared to really bury yourself in the VO2 max test. It's quite tricky with fatigued legs!

Al_P - Good to see you posting. I was at Stubby today but didn't see you around!

Bainspj - Are you targeting anything specific with the Pfitz schedule?

CW - Could the left/right imbalance be caused by a functional leg length discrepancy created by a muscle/skeletal problems?(titled pelvis etc)

111 for me this week @ 7:11/mile. I entered the Stubby 10k a while ago but had planned to give it a miss after entering Seville as I was into the high mileage but decided to go and give it a bash anyway. Did 7m before and got around in a very pleasing 35:28 with another 5m afterwards. Legs were properly battered and HR didn't even get to HM effort so hopefully a sign that things are moving along nicely.

Coro - I've also just finished the same book and although I did enjoy sections of it, I too felt annoyed for much of it. He seemed very dismissive of anyone who choses to run or train in a different manner to himself.

CW - Happy birthday and nice long run

Jools/TR - Nice long and longish runs

PhilP - The Kent XC, and especially your club, sounds like a very high standard. Well done on the bling.

113 @ 7:16 for me last week including my first XC outing for over 20 years in a pretty bleak but beautiful setting on the North Devon coast. Ankle deep in mud for most of it and occassionally knee deep in water along with 24 x ditch/stream crossings was a bit of a shock but I really enjoyed it. Managed to sneak in as last scorer for the club so definitely a worthwhile trip.

Padams - I know what you mean but hopefully I'll be ok as my training doesn't contain any sessions. I'm keeping a close eye on things that are tight and niggly

Nice to see Muss back posting and training - hopefully a big performance at VLM this year.  Also good to see TT getting back to it

Lots of very impressive end of year stats on here.

Padams - 100 miles!! That really is a very long way and as TR says, a great training motivator.

My 2015 stats were 3327 miles and PBs at 10m, HM and marathon.

I had no plan for the week after Pisa so just ran as and when I felt like it and ended up doing 30 miles. After entering Seville I pushed the mileage up the second week after Pisa and ended up doing 112 @ 7:24/mile.  Similar volume planned this week but hopefully a bit quicker.

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to all

I really hope that everyone who is close to the flooding stays dry - some really awful images on the telly recently.

I've entered Seville marathon on Feb 21st so a 7 week block started today with a 9+7. Hopefully the high mileage and lack of sessions will allow me to get back training without any problems.
