Easy day yesterday, gentle run am and then got held up at work so didn't get home 'til 8:30. Turbo session duly cancelled.

I was walking my dogs at the weekend and they were running around the playing fields and a couple of loose bull terriers approached so I called mine in and put them on the lead. These two mangy beasts starting growling and jumping on my dogs and their obnoxious owner, instead of apologising or attempting to get her dogs back to heel starts piping up "oh, don't you let your dogs off to play?" clearly suggesting that I was being a miserable arse. "Not with dogs that are obviously out of control, no." was my response. By this time one of them was trying to hump my collie which I didn't think he was particularly enjoying so I booted it. The other owner got more huffy then so I told her quite directly to "go away". Some people are utter fat idiots.

Nice and easy Lorenzo and Gul and anyone else with niggles
Enjoy your hols VTr

GE, I think fell racing has such a technical element to it that it skews the results even further from the muggles like you and I to the likes of Mssrs Bland and Naylor. Good fun though!

Weird double post

KR, 1K reps but speed expressed in minutes per mile pace just to keep it interesting.

Nice casual 5K there Jools.

My conversion is rubbish, 1hr22 HM to a 3:12marathon - tsssk

Mind you, I haven't done a fresh marathon for 2 years so maybe that will change one day.

Happy birthday (?) MsE.

KR, you asked how I fit in sessions for 3 sports. With difficulty would be the response. Lots of getting up early, training before and after work and carefully managing a spouse are the only options.

Overdid it a bit at the weekend. I was already tired from a heavy day on Friday and my riding buddy had his fresh legs on which forced me into a 50mile time trial pursuit over Lakeland hills. Knackered afterwards. My run on Sunday was nothing more than a 90minute shuffle.
Bit better this morning with 3x1k at 5:38, 5:27, 5:37mm pace off 400m recoveries then 0.5k at 5:48 pace to finish off easy(!). Must've been a tail wind. Swim tonight!

As this year's nominee of official list keeper I will endeavour to get on to a PC later rather than this phone and publish the first list - post your races and targets!

Very impressive KR!

What's your official target time Gul? Are you going for a conservative 3:14:59?

1 hr turbo yesterday morning and 8 for me last night including 2 blocks of 2miles at 6:10mm. Swim, bike and run are all on the cards today.
