Your lunchtime sounds much more pleasant than mine GM! Back to back meetings with a cheese sandwich

Excellent run chaperoning Leslie. Very special times.

Sorry to hear that Abbers - bench time is never easy.  Hope it improves soon.

On that note, gently does it OO.

Looking good Moof.

3@MP, 2@HMP, 1@10k last night off steady 1 mile intervals. Hot!

Very well done BB! That is an excellent result. Good luck at Dublin and stay in touch so we can enjoy your build up!

Gul, that is a strong long run. Sounds like you are on great form.

Well done OO and PMJ on your victories. I can only dream....

Happy anniversary Lorenzo 

Good luck on the MP run tomorrow Moof - I always struggle on that one.

Best of luck to Poacher....

3 hr hard ride around Silverdale, Arnside, Lyth Valley this morning with someone who wouldn't slow down when I was tired. That's not fair is it? Actually making me work hard - yeesh. Beautiful scenery when I had the time to look though.

Intriguing dramatic pause BB!

BI, you described your training as "going well" - you are a glass half full kinda guy!  Enjoy the new diet. I suggested a similar approach to a friend of mine who was diagnosed as diabetic a few months ago and got him using the myfitnesspal app to monitor and refocus his diet composition away from carbs. He's lost a few stone, had the all clear from the doc (blood sugar is back to normal) and has started cycling and running. Complete transformation. Motivation plus access to information worked a treat.

Get well soon / don't get ill Jools.

Bon trip GM.

Intense week (for me) of running so far - session with 4m @HMP on Monday, Wednesday was w/u 3@MP2@HMP, 1@10Kpace, off 1mile easy, tonight's blast out was w/u then 2x3m@HMP off 1mile easy. Feeling ok. I'm now on day 7 of the kinetic revolution 30day challenge (core and flexibility stuff) which is going well too - is anyone else doing this?

Minni, you could learn to play the banjo or learn to speak a foreign language... Flemish?

How many hours a week do you normally run in a week? 10? 15? More? That would be a significant investment in a new skill during your time on the bench. Granted it's unlikely to be as much fun as running (depending on what you choose )

Yes indeed Poacher. Good luck for Sunday - you are a relentless machine!

Minni, maybe you could do some serious swim training and have a crack at a tri when you've recovered..... or write a book......

Good news on the comrades plans Lorenzo. How are you going to modify your training approach?

Haven't done pool running Minni, my local pool is only 5 foot deep so wouldn't be any good for it (although might be perfect for you )

Tasty target Mr Moof! 

Another appt at the eye clinic this morning - the doc said that the "scarring was healing nicely". Still can't see very well out of it but it is definitely improving. 

1.5m easy then 4m at HMP (4min per km) with 1.5m cool down on the tready last night. A bit hot but ok.

Bah, that sucks Minni. 3 months! Not surprised that you are disappointed - VLM would probably be a stretch anyway though if you factor in sensible recovery time.  What can you do in the meantime to maintain fitness / strength?

OO - wow! What a great performance and result to podium in such a huge race!  Epic stuff sir. Very relaxed looking photo too  Definitely performance of the week (and some!)

Bit of a grim night last night for me. Seems I managed to get anti fog spray from my goggles into my eye which then sat there glueing itself to my cornea for 4.5hrs. Felt like I was being repeatedly poked in the eye with a manky sharp stick last night.  6+ hours in hospital and litres, yes litres, of eye irrigation later I had the ok to go home. Back for another check up tomorrow. Joy.

Only a matter of time Poacher. Well done again on conpleting an unnecessarily difficult race.

Ullswater swim for me today. Headed up to the top of the lake early doors, wetsuit on, in the water and then just swam.

4.5hrs later I got to the southern end. 7.8ish miles depending on who's watch you trust. No dramas. Just perfect conditions and beautiful scenery to catch a glimpse of every few seconds. Loved it.

Go Go O O !

Well done Poacher on another notch on the trainers. Sounds like a tough day out!

Tasty long and park running going on 

Nothing quite so energetic here: 90min bike followed by a 2 mile run yesterday to test the legs and then an evening dip in Windermere to reacclimatise to british lake water - yum yum.  60 min easy but progressive run today. Back on it!
