 Sounds a lot more fun for strengthening your quads than T25.

Sounds like you hit the wall on your bike ride, not pleasant. 

I'm in pen B, so theoretically should be surrounded by people in and around the 1:30 mark so hopefully won't get stuck behind many people. I'm not intending to race it though as it's the day after my mates wedding.


Yeah I did wonder if that was what had happened - wouldn't have fancied running another 6 miles feeling like that!

Re GNR - so will that make you one of those really annoying people who are in the wrong pens and get in everybody's way?

View from our bedroom window on day we didn't climb Great Gable (centre shot).

 And same view on Thursday and Friday when we decided not to!

I went for a really stupid bike ride yesterday - I didn't think it was stupid when I set off but when I arrived home completely spent 4 hours later I knew it was too hard for me.

I made it to 40 miles in 3:15 and all the tough climbing was out of the way but just ran out of fuelling and my quads just felt like they had melted away - last 6 miles took me over 45 mins and I had to stop and get off a couple of times as felt a bit lightheaded - over 4500 feet of climbing - think that might be my last long bike ride of the summer.

Running wise this week I'm just doing 4 * 3miles but will go to 4 * 4 miles week after if no ill effects then 4* 5 miles week after that. Then I might stop there for a bit - my aim is to be running about 30 miles a week for November through to January but need to get to 20 miles a week problem free first.

Pete - I'll post a couple of photos of view from our cottage. Unfortunately there was a bump with some trees on between us and the Lake so GG looks a little bit insignificant but still a cracking view - the garden also had a plum tree in it and all the plums were ripe - that was packed lunch fruit sorted!

Sounds good, skinny.  Would appreciate some details of your mountain walks.

Pete - we spent the week walking on the shoulders of giants but did not go up any of the high ones and also only had three fell walking days out of the 6 just to keep a bit of variety.

So we did Whin Rigg and Illgill Head (the ridge walk above Wastwater Screes) from Eskdale and back down the Miterdale Valley via Burnmoor Tarn.

We also travelled to Langdale and did Pike O' Blisco from Wall End and back down by Stool End - the weather was spectacular that day and the views were superb - the top is sandwiched between Crinkle Crags on one side and the Langdale Pikes the other side.

We saved Thursday or Friday to do Great Gable which we could see right up the valley from our cottage - except on Thursday or Friday we couldn't see it as the weather was rubbish so we didn't do it - however it cleared out at about 4pm so we went up Buckbarrow at other side of valley for a good view of the Screes.

I've read back but I'm not going to 'do a Bob post' and try and cover everything.

Just to pick up on Richard and his race day adrenaline as this was something I think I brought up originally.

On race day I feel I benefit in two ways from my normal training. The first is that its race day and being surrounded by other people at the start and knowing 'this is it' - this is why I do 3 or 4 poos on race day but none for a normal training day - to get the best from this adrenaline I need to make sure I control it in first half a mile or so otherwise it could be a bad thing.

The other way I benefit though is that I am running with other people either running to their stride, or being able to chase a back or try and keep in front of a chaser - because I always train on my own this is something I only get on race day - as you do a lot of your quality sessions with others at a club it may be that there is not any gain from this element on race day and is why you are able to hit such good times in training sessions that I could not manage?

Well done to Richard on only missing his 10k PB by 9 seconds in a race which clearly wasn't optimal - sounds like a 43:xx should be very possible ay Stirling and maybe less?

Its a year since we did the first Top Trumps table so here it is below. Not everyone was on it and all the categories are not quite the same but interesting nevertheless. Some of us have improved our times quite a lot.

Tommy getting a 10 mile PB that will be easy to beat once he runs a 10 mile race that is only 10 and not 11 miles!

okay - I haven't caught up with all the posts - I've done no running for two weeks but got up early this morning and just decided to go out and run my best and set a base level for my base training that will hopefully start on Monday with the proviso that I would not compromise my form towards the end.

Bearing in mind the start is slightly downhill and the end is slightly uphill I ran a virtually flatly paced 5k which I impressed myself with - whether I am BACK or not depends on how I feel tomorrow and the day after.

When I first got injured I think my 5k PB was faster than Lit's - now the best I can manage is 2 mins 38 secs slower! I suppose I am a little short on any specific 5k training though
