Phew just about thawed out after today's Great NorthWest half in Blackpool. Was probably about as windy as last year but had the added benefit of rain, hail and sleet. They also changed the course from last year as well. Managed 1:27:30 in the end which all things considered I am happy with. Minute fast than last year.... 2 minutes slower than two years ago.... Still wondering whether to go for a pb at Wilmslow or not. Usually recover quite quickly.

Some great running today by you lot. It seems like some of you got caught up in snow, rain and wind too....

Cheers Matt, though it's taken over a minute off. Unless it's the trees but it's based on my garmin which is different?!?

Running tap I don't think you'll have anything to worry about. The website says it's the flattest in the UK though sometimes I like a downhill section for a rest....

Quick question for those of you on Strava. Is it changing your times? I load up my time via Garmin Connect and then when I go on Strava it changes the time. Strava is saying I did the parkrun in a ridiculously fast time and I know it isn't right. Any ideas what is happening?

Good result there, Gary. A pb is a pb and you've also got Wilmslow coming up too or are you going to run that at mp?

Good going on your long run Pete, nice splits. I managed 19 miles today but my splits all over the place, range from 6:47 up to 9:20 I am blaming the hills around here! Was knackered by the end....

John looks like you're running confidently sure you'll get under 5 hours. You're not too far off my weekly mileage. I don't know how people can squeeze in 50+ miles a week....

Looks like there has been some good training going on this week. Well done everyone! Hope the people with lurgy get better soon, don't think there is anything more frustrating, just make sure you don't rush straight back in to training.

Good luck for your half tomorrow Gary, sure you'll get a pb, my pb is 1:23 and you're faster than me so 1:22 should be easy for you! Am doing the Great North West next weekend. Hopefully it won't be as windy as last year....

Heaton Parkrun for me this morning and a new pb for the second week running! Dipped below 19 minutes and finished in the top 10 for the first time. Guess I need some new targets now.....I also drank a few pints, had some red wine and ate some take away pizza last night so guess there is always room for improvement!

Gary - I think the flyer I saw for that event said it was undulating, however I think it is possible the cheapest race I've ever seen. Isn't it about a ??10 to enter.... Seems a bargain

Is weird isn't it when you wake up and don't feel like running but you go down to your local parkrun and get a pb. My legs felt so tired this morning that I thought it was just going to be a trot round but in the end managed 19:06 which is nearly 20 seconds improvement on that course. So am pretty chuffed especially as the last few weeks I have felt better and less tired. Must be the new trainers and the speedy people in front of me. Finished a lowly 27th this week!

Hope everyone is out enjoying the sunshine. 18/19 miles for me tomorrow.....

Going back to Nonsticks question about the 10k I would say go for it. I've always pb'd in the weeks after a marathon. In fact both my 10k and half marathon pb'd were within 3 weeks of a marathon. Guess it just depends on how your body recovers and how much training you've done before the event. Think my body is just glad it isn't doing a marathon so just goes faster....

My mileage hasn't been great this week due to work and compacted snow still on the pavements, back above 40 next week hopefully

Have you done the Stafford 20 before Gary? Is it any good? Am down for the Wilmslow half. Hoping for good weather, missed it last year. Year before it was freezing and the year before that about 20c. Have the Great North West in two weeks, shall see how I get on there....

Gary think I finished just one place behind you at parkrun this morning, was going to say hello but wasn't a 100% sure it was you. I was a bit gutted with my time this morning but hey ho there is always next week. Think I pushed too hard at the beginning. I am blaming the ice as well. How did your son get on - did he win it?

Managed to get out despite the constant snow storms this week, even saw a flash of lightning which is never good when you're out running! My mileage is ticking along nicely and got myself a new pair of trainers. New shoes always make me run faster. Will have to see if my weekly mileage tips me into the top 30 on Strava not sure how the rest of you manage such high mileages!
