Great times being posted, as always. Despite not popping in that often it is re assuring and motivational to consistently see quick times and great tales being posted.

Minni Sub 1:30 is a great possibility in 2 weeks.

Hello all.

Just popping in to pass on my best wishes for the GNR and anyone else racing this weekend.

I have still been ticking over (180 treadmill miles in August). Finally had my shoulder operation on Wed, so a few weeks off and hoping to get back on the road at the start of October.

Hello all.

Good running and racing, as always.

A very brief pop in. I have still been plodding for the last couple of months. Struggling for motivation, but still averaging approx. 35 miles a week, to keep ticking over.

I am due to have an op on my shoulder at the start of September, it doesn't hurt anymore but still very little movement.

Back to work and only treadmill running for all of August and very little internet.

I have entered a little race in April next year.

Hopefully I will post more regularly again come September/October.

Keep on and remember to enjoy it.

Speedy Major congratulations on a great run, time and report. Given the build up the time is mightily impressive.

No internet for the last week, major read back necessary.

Again, crazy number of posts. Very quick shorter distances. Good luck Menn.

I run on a treadmill when I have no other choice. Which is normally all of July and August, due to work. Once you realise you have no other choice it is an easy decision.

Easy decisions, work got in the way again today. "Guests" arriving tomorrow, so only just finished work. On duty so can't leave, hence no running tonight or over the weekend (unless on the treadmill). I am hoping a long rest of approx a week will help with glute as it is fine until I run.

Moof The consultant appointment is for the shoulder. I was correct, I contacted to confirm date and since yesterday the consultant has decided to cancel all appointments and go abroad. New date pencilled in (subject to change). Fortunately I hadn't booked flights.

I find myself agreeing with KR

JD3 All about base building at this stage

Both my wife and daughter have no interest in my running whatsoever. I believe, by taking to them all the time about running and changing any topic to a story about my running, will change their lack of interest.

I however do not agree with starting quickly and holding on

5 miles recovery tonight and both calfs felt slightly tight.

Lots of ungoing frustration, but finally managed to book an appointment with consultant for first week in June. I am quite confident I will be required to re arrange this.

Busy indeed.

Some nice post marathon pacey sessions.

Another long day, so due to slight rain I went out for an 8pm run on empty roads. Perfect conditions and 8 miles in 61 minutes done. Left glute still not perfect.

Minks I think most would agree about P&D being light of 20 ilers. Just a case of adding a few miles to a few runs.

No running tonight. Work got in the way. Could be a case of only treadmill running from now on. The busy season has officially started.

Welcome Minks

My first thoughts would be the Monday recovery run being run to quickly, as you state, will then have an effect on the rest of your weekly runs. Running recovery runs slow enough to recover is very important (also something I don't do). If I remember Minni has a great article about the importance of recovery runs.

It is difficult when life gets in the way. Is there any way of adding a run into your commute? Or do you have enough time to make Friday your LSR day?

DS2 I went from 3:24 to 3:08 on the back of P&D upto 55 miles (5 days a week schedule). Just recover/base build prior to starting the 18 week schedule would be my advice.

Menn To echo SJ Great running/hunting strategy.

I have a 1:25:xx PB at HM and I aim to get that down in the autumn prior to sub 3 plan next year.
