Lit, sorry I didn't realise your on the full whack! So credit where it's due!

Bus, it may feel it didn't go well but 6-12 seconds per mile isn't a write-off. Tempos are hard at the best of times so you may want to feel your way in with some short MP runs, as SG suggested.

I did something along those lines today:

2WU, 6 at MP (6:40, 6:41, 6:37, 6:46, 6:39, 6:26), 1WD with strides. The 6:37 was downhill, the next mile at 6:46 was going back up! Nice rest day tomorrow with some athletics on the telly tonight! Feet up job.

Dachs, I can second what Deano said, the 3000 is a funny beast for us road types. I never get near what Mr McMillain has planned for me. But it seems that a 9:15 is about right? Still a cracking time pal.

SG, good to see those cheeky 5min HM/MP session are back, although not ramped up to the full 45 . Almost back to full intensity now then? You back on the M man plan? You're right about fast races up here, you don't have to wait too long at all!

Deano, you doing any of your road relays? I'm doing the north west and the northerns but our teams are stacked now the whippet kids are 18. Jesus, our team is full of sub 8:45 3K lads and big Stu is the 'weak link.'  I'm in a 'seniors' team which goes head to head with a 'junior' (U20) team.

Matt, already said well done on FB but again, silly stuff! You getting tempted into a full marathon?!

For me, I'm getting along ok. Just really lack consistency. Hopefully when I get back to work It'll all settle down, I run best over winter too. Love the XC season.

Did a 16 x 1min (1minrec) session on Tuesday. Was covering 300m, and jogging 100M which worked out well. Last 300 was in 49 So obviously I'm still in ok shape. Just need to add in the long runs as they have been soaked up by hangovers this summer!

Sounds like a great holiday IC, loads of food and no little weigh gain! Winner!

Dach, 5 miles @tempo! Crikey! That's one hell of a workout! Good going fella.

Ric, hope all is well and the injury/health problems are resolving themselves.

I ran a 3K tonight at Trafford, first track race of the year. Got to 5/7 laps on pace and feeling alright but then the last 2 1/2 laps were tough. Lost 4 seconds a lap and got to 800 to go praying for a quick death. Finished in 10:12 on a windy night. Happy for the first of the season and I had ran 2 runs totalling 11 miles yesterday.

Did the 200s in the end. 10 x 200 off a very large 2mins, but the focus obviously being speed. Did all in 32s which for me is quick! The coach sets the sessions for the group but sends an email each week advising particular people. He said to the 5MMT as a training race but I obviously hit it quite hard. The session was okay, but had an ice bath after to help recover.

Watched the cricket yesterday, got rained off after the first session so ended up in Belgium beer bar all day. The 4.5 mile run to get my car today was grim!

Urgh, Matt that sounds grim pal. Rest up, I didn't and couldn't shake it for a month! Wish my club was in a league that took park each week, we're in the Cheshire league but it's a total joke and they only have 3 meetings.

Dachs, sounds like an excellent outing. There's nothing wrong knowing you're at your best (or equal to!). If you want a quick course before Leeds, there's one in Wilne late August I think. It's near Derby and Nottingham, so closer than Leeds but still a trek. I've done it before twice, it's very flat and a good field.

I did the Pie and Peas 5 last night, came 15th (best finish in 4 attempts) with a time of 30:18. 30 seconds slower than last year but given my recent fell exploits and a 12 mile day on Tuesday I'll happily take it. Felt strong all the way round at 6:02 avg which is encouraging. Might have gone quicker but got dislocated between 2 groups and stuck running on my own. Pie was lovely after! Did 5 miles this morning... not so lovely. Race was won in 25:30... 5 miles hilly MMT!!

10 x 200 tonight so the coach says. Should be a fun blast after last night.

Have a good rest Bus.

I'm having a crack at a 5MMT run by my club tonight. They feed you pie and peas at the end so was a no brainer!

Wow Matt, those last 3 miles were blistering! Amazing how you wanted to pack it in after the GMR and now you're flying. It was always going to be tough to beat Andy Norman, who despite what he says, is in cracking shape and a 2:24 marathon man. 26 mins for the last 5miles!!  Amazing! Love it.

I managed 12 this afternoon (the down hills were tricky!) so that's 65 for the week. The first week in a while I've combined volume and quality. Built up to it so it didn't;t feel particularly rough.

Pace was shocking though, I'll pinch a phrase a read on Twitter earlier, it was 'Kanu running back to defend an 89th minute corner pace'  Just inside 8min/miles.

Bus, not a chance, I nearly turned around when I saw the sheer drop the guys in front had run (fallen) down. With your long off-road prowess I'd be miles behind. Good effort for the 15 miles, they are the runs you remember when the going gets tough in a race.

Matt, I'd definitely do some more fell stuff, but now I have a distance and accent baseline I will be very selective. I'm not keen on these 3m/2000ft jaunts. Oh, and I'd need some decent shoes if any has any recommendations?

SG, I noticed you cranked out a 15miler at 7ish pace. You must be pretty much there if you can do that.

I am sorry Bus, I'm away for a month and comeback with an insult! ???? I just remember you saying you always lost places going downhill! I'm sure you'd beast me on a fell! Everytime there was a down 3 people would fly past! It was good fun though.
