Jam. End of.

Don't know my feb run total but I do know that that is now 3 months of running every single day. 9 months to go to fulfil an arbitrary target which I have recently made up on a whim. Whoop.

My trip to the big smoke was a roaring success Abbers, thank you. On the train onthe way home now. I think things will progress quite quickly with that one - perm role but I also nudged them along the lines of "trying me out as an associate first so we can get to know each other" (Kerrrrchinnng!). Got the job on Friday too Having a good few days. Skype interview for a third company tomorrow.... Would be happier if Man City hadn't thrown away their season in the last 2 games though, but can't have everything.
Just seen a link to loch gu loch - a swim run event in Scotland in September - teams of 2, 13 swims totalling 8km with 50k of running in between. Anyone fancy it?

As long as I don't run too quick the hills are ok MsE. Downhill on the road is my nemesis however. My A race this year is very hilly so it's all about steady slog miles in the mud for the next few weeks.

That's a big weekend RFJ - super stuff

Excellent progression MsE particularly whilst under the weather

Cracking time Jools

16 this morning of woods, fells and playing fields. First 3 miles contained 1000ft of climbing but settled down after that to total just under 2500ft. Stopped off for a 1500m swim on the way back too.

Thanks for the tv tip GE.

Oh no ssc! That sucks.

Good plan MsE. Full on HM racing is rather unforgiving and is unlikely to end well if you are under the weather.

Abbers, it went well thanks. Mostly due to the fact that as well as being modest I am an incredibly charming and witty genius. Find out the verdict next week. Have another interview on Monday in that London. Posh.

Lorenzo, 27?!!

Nice early morning 60mile bike session today which included a circumnavigation of Windermere and a few lumpy bits. Steady run to finish off.

Indeed JF2. No one would want me for long enough to get into IR35 problems

Xpost - super running KR

Take care JF2. Niggle plus those hard sessions in quick succession sounds a bit risky.

GD, a PB in training?! Very good sign

Abbers, big tax benefits too on the contract route. I'm in a hotel tonight near Oxford for an interview tomorrow for a contract role. Doubles your take home pay for doing lower level work. Mental. As long as you can handle the insecurity and the travel.

Do what you can RFJ.

PMJ, wine from my "cellar" always tastes better on day 2. Must be buying the wrong stuff.....

Fast brick this morning - felt amazing afterwards. A 9 on the "Lorenzo scale of self flagellation" (LSOSF).

Lorenzo, do you normally give yourself marks out of 10, and If so does that go on your training log? I think my ratings would be depressing reading.

Quality fuelling PMJ. How's the gout? Very solid campaign successfully negotiated, hope the taper runs smoothly.

Good luck to the weekend racers and may the weather be more kind than currently predicted.

Get well soon GM.
