Week 7 over and that's the first phase of this training period complete. Near enough perfect and happy with the results. I have improved over a set loop and my aerobic fitness has increased. 

18.5m long miles today, felt my belly go from mile 3, shat myself at mile 8 in the middle of the forest, trudged home from mile 12, got the run done at 18.5. Foot was a tad sore last few miles which sore HR drift otherwise kept it under 140 for whole run nearer 135 and was hovering 150 ish last few 

Average pace 7:10 and HR 140 (73.6%) Pleasing though, time for a cutback week now 

2 hours 12 on my feet today and over 8 hours training this week- 72.85m

Still a decent effort for you Scott and no doubt Tuesday and things will impact that run

A really solid run from me tonight. Managed to get on the measured loop I've done twice before and repeat it. A bit of a mind game but did it.

10@ 6:36s (65:55) AV HR 144 - 75.7 % so near enough spot on goal

A really pleasing result given I have now improved this time on the same effort on the same route in the space of 7 weeks and this was my quickest average pace over any distance in the campaign. Previous was 8@6:39s

10@6:56 + 10@6:51 were the previous results (1:09:31 + 1:08:38)

A long run tomorrow to end the week on somewhere between 70-74 miles. Will be at least 16 tomorrow

Very nice mile time mate! Definitely throws a.m few questions about goals over next summer that's for sure!

Ah Maidenhead HM. I'll be stalking results

Again felt good on the run today.. 12 @6:46s and opened on 6:20/6:30 miles so that was pleasing

HR 144 for 75.7%

August recap

Following Jersey efforts end of June / July I started to work with someone new and the focus has been running at 75% HR and building miles. I am thoroughly pleased with the month that mainly I have got through with my piles, I have felt better since becoming slightly anaemic and having medication and the slight foot niggle.. 

All in all I am running well and feeling good. A nice change! 

I am entering a rest week next week and nervous about the colonoscopy, it'll be hard mentally I feel as I'll be itching to run but rest is just as important and the sessions

Averaging 7-8 hours per week through the month It was tough around work and Mia. Having to get up early some days to run then drive into work was draining but hopefully the hard work will pay off when I can run some quick times

Mileage - 303.98

Rest days - 3

Double days - 2 

Runs - 30 - Average run 10.1m

Long runs - 1 x 13 / 1 x 14 / 2 x 16 / 1 x 18

Races - 1 - IOW HM 3rd 1:21:06

Biggest week - 73.55m

The HM Sunday? Which is it? Nice mile! Very speedy


8m this evening straight from work once home, then into Kyles for massage. Small chance of ligament damage as the location is so close to the bone but also unlikey with pain level (low) 

Going for a hard deep massage session on my feet and calves in two weeks (so after my rest week) and advised to get back into the NHS for a scan and see a proper podiatrist which I ring them tomorrow if I remember! 

The likely thing though is just tightness at the base of the plantar with extremely poor dorsiflexion and lack of movement in the area. 

Stretching 3 x a day and foot mobility required so really want to do that as I'll be damned if I have to be benched after the last 6-7 weeks of work

So 8 @6:55s continuting the trend of running sub 7 for the week feeling good 9I am not worrying for pace at the moment but 100% increase in fitness coming through here). HR in a good place as eased into first mile with 12x HR and then had some spikes early on holding at 170/180 so had to stop and fiddle. HR finished at 140 - 73.6% but could have been as low as 138 which is good with the pace..

Changing up to do double today, with massage booked in 6:30 and not finishing work till 4:30 leaves me tight for the 12 miles.. 

So 6 + 8 Around work with 6 being done this morning..,

Felt good, wore my other slightly more neutral shoes for a change with orthotics swapped and felt ok. Nothing whilst running

6.1m @6:46 - 42 minutes HR in check at 141 for 74.2%

I saw that! Cut down from 1 mile in 3:55 1200 /1km etc to 200 (in 25 seconds)

Even more mind boggling I have a few of Bekele sessions (alleged) when he set the 5km WR

3 x 2000 @ 5:00..... (4:00 m/m pace)

And 800s ..6 x 800.. Going through in 64 / 52 splitting

Also talks of the Ethiopians doing 30 mile over runs at 5:40 mile pace when doing the marathon..

Good luck with the HM session..

So an August recap

Ric - Not taking any note of his own knowledgeable wise "how to keep healthy" attitude and running whilst under the weather

Dean - World medal and then smashing a PB week later after drowning himself in alcohol and food. Awesome

Bus - Nearly dying on the Alps and getting back to a fatty BBQ. Seemingly standard behaviour and unfazed! I don't think I'd run again for a while let alone go for a swim

Broken bones by SS - hope you heal fast

SG - Man UTD losing, well actually thats the least suprising thing this month out of the above glad you've got back some decent running and hoping anything underlying with your health comes to nothing

Matt - running 15 @6:40 is now easy then decides to add a dirty 5@5:45s on the end. Disgustingly impressive

Even for me running 300 mile this month and running a 73 mile week last week...

Dachs - 3pbs in 3weeks mixing the distances up and also being beaten by 13year old boys, I hope that won't be something you enjoy as much as the PBs so don't make it a regular thing

IC - seems to be consistently ticking over again? Hope the Achilles doesn't flare up badly

AG - nice Tri-ing

What on earth is going on

Nice bike effort! Yeah some of them were so dopey I nearly had a few accidents! 

Still can't get my head round how much training would be needed for a marathon! Read a really good post actually from founder of lets run, 28 min 10 km man and lad who paced Paula radcliffe to her 2:17 chicago WR years back. Laying out how much time it consumes day to day and the sacrifices about becoming pro etc

Home from the IOW yesterday and straight to Victorious festival, not normally my thing but had 4 free tickets so why not  

Back late and up 7AM for the run, get it done! 

Foot was sore but again eased off whilst running. Brought some plantar arch supports from amazon to see how they help (if at all) So far if I wore my night splint seemed to make things more tight. Was only a fiver and think the left arch just needs a bit of help..

Also booked in for massage tomorrow PM but may have to cancel depending on things as GFs mum has been in hospital since Saturday with Neutropenic sepsis but hopefully will be home so may have to run from here and give lifts

8 @ 6:49s this morning on the loop I have used alot, previously done the two 10 mile comparable loops here and today would have been faster had I carried on..

HR 143 for 75.2% again, Got hot in the rain jacket!

First 4 at 6:40s then dropped back and last mile nearer 7 but was turning up and down the road to make the mileage rather than run up till it hit 8 and walk back I was being silly.. Just under 54:30 minutes

Ends the month on roughly 300 miles - All time high. Coming off highest ever week too

Onwards and upwards things seem to be working for me at the moment.. Just sort this foot niggle but otherwise I think I'm operating well

Feeling good too as probably all of my morning runs even ones that haven't been till 9/10AM have been done with no food / breakfast. Getting used to it and 100% feel some adaptations have been made with using energy. Feeling a tad leaner.

Will do a full stats update when I get on my computer
