Great stuff Dachs - Yes, sub 9 definitely on there - think i've got another 800/3000 double on Monday week at Perivale, hopefully my Egyptian mate will have improved and then he can drag me round and I can get my 800 under 2.10!  Watford 29/7? (yes i'll keep advertising it!) I'm going to try one of those 'is this a good idea?' races and aim for sub 8.50..

I like the brave way Rob goes at it - but i'm more of a coward and go to try and go by the metronome method!

PP - Oh god his First passion is tri? Thats even more depressing isn't it. Saw the start of the North Downs race in Greenwood's tweet..god knows what you looked like at the end of the race!! I did it in 2002 or 2003 - can't get the results.

Good running Scott and Pete, good time in that weather Scott - although yesterday at Grafham water (Cambs) it was pretty windy and pissing down all morning, attending a Triatholon as the missus was ding some massage.

Bus - a half in the summer? asking for trouble there!

Stevie - on paths I just go for the 'leg it hard for 30 secs' and then use that as the marker for reps. Very Scientific

Dean - yes watched all the Watford BMC on Vinco. Alex Yee 14.20 and Nick Torry from Kent AC 14.2x for a v35! Good performances froma couple of Herne Hillers, Lewis LLoyd in the 1500 and Stacey in the womens 5000.

They got lucky with the weather too didn't they..grrrr

Good old 200's. Great distance for reps, if I'm out on the road I just try and find a stretch that takes 35 ish to tempo and use that. Tres scientifique 

Good reps SG and solid efforts from PMJ and Dachs, sounds like a well under 16 coming up for you soon. Sensible to see what you are slightly lacking and trying to target it, something I need to do rather than some short stuff with long runs,! perhaps going training and getting advice from an ex Olympian would be a good idea!

annoyingly had a headache yesterday after a leavers do, even after food before and after the 6 pints! So had a couple of tablets and accompanied the missus to MK park run, she did 25 odd as usual. Then ran back from MK, about 13/14 miles, had dodgy guts for a couple of hours when I got back, probably from the anadin extra, should have known.

with the kid today at grafham water at a triathlon whilst the missus is massaging, hoping to do a few short efforts. Seen the weather for next week? Trainings going to be tough!

Phil - as if i'd be allowed any more late nights out in Laaandaan   Good race then - not far off PB and there's a few inclines if I remember rightly, only done it the once, years ago.

Just done the steady 'urban 4' this lunchtime - Camden Rd, Cally Rd, back along canal. Cally Rd is so beautiful in the sunshine...

Deaf bingo as per usual. Suprise suprise.

Well lets just hope the rules get tighter so his ilk get thrown out of races in the future.

Cheers For the comments, overall I'm happy with the consistency, I think the lack of actual 5k training is partly to blame. Anyway, some shorter stuff for a while I feel now

Tweet from Kent AC said Phil was out in front, so perhaps a PB on the cards?
