interesting fact that MsE, especially since they are the ones I have. I think my lack of injury in the past few months has been more due to the fact that I've run less, any running has been off-road and I've done a lot more cross training. Any stretching does aggravate things though (for me) so that has also played a part but isn't standard advice. Good to have you back.

Marrows, a channel swim is hardcore. I'm tackling Ullswater (7.5miles) in a couple of weeks which is very tame in comparison. 1hr in the hotel pool frightening the other tourists with my exuberance this afternoon as preparation.

I've set up camp in an airport hotel bar ready for my early morning flight.  

VT, I'm prepping for a marathon. I've lifted the quality sessions out of one of the schedules from the Hudson/Fitzgerald book and ditched all the easy running to keep the volume down for injury prevention. I'm gambling on having enough base / cardio fitness already in the bank so just trying to sharpen up. Sub 3 on under 40miles per week? Interesting experiment*.

Fishy, recovery from anything long is noticeably quicker with Hokas too. The only downside is that they are really ugly.  Next race is off- road and my Hokas are roady ones so I'll be wearing my Salomon S-Lab Ultra Sense shoes which are the finest shoes I've ever owned. 

* I don't really have another option.

I used to do loads of stretching and was often injured. When I got my hip diagnosis at the start if this year I stopped stretching completely and haven't had a twinge (other than from my hip) since. Tempting fate by writing that no doubt.

3k swim set this morning. Tonight's run was 1.5 mile w/u followed by 4 x 2K at 10k pace off 400m recoveries and then 1K at 5K pace followed by 1 mile cool down. Felt surprisingly manageable.

Right, off on my hols in 5mins for a week in the sun. Might have internet access but might not. Run well everyone. Ciao.

Stinson Tarmac (I think) - they aren't as cushioned as some of the others but are quite different to 'normal' shoes.

Have a good time OO. We are flying out on Thursday morning for a week sans kids in Sorrento! Weather is looking toasty so I've packed my running vests

I run with Hokas. Love em. Mine were tight at first too but they are well broken in now.

Good to see the long running picking up again

Rest well Leslie, hope it works....

Excellent hat-trick OO. Superb consistency and an admirable norm. 

3 hilly hours on the bike yesterday followed by an exam celebration blow-out meal. I've never felt so fat. 15 mile purge run today consisting of 5mile easy then 5x (1mile at 6:35mm, 1mile at 7:50mm) for 15 total and 37 for the week which is my biggest run week for a while. It has certainly contained more quality than any single week in the past couple of years.  Enjoying it.

Bad news on the squished car Poacher but good news that you are relatively intact. Yes, ultra entered and I'm looking forward to it. Only 35 miles so barely counts.

Nice one MsE - glad to hear you are back in the proverbial saddle.

Quality comeback running from Abbers too.

Tonight's session was 1mile w/u, 4miles at HMP (1:25 pace), 1m easy, 2m at 10K pace (38.5min pace), 1m c/d.  Felt ok until the last half mile of the 10k pace bit when it became a touch uncomfortable but dug in and could have gone on further (but not much). That'll do.
