A good outing and nice to duck the sub 6 barrier. I found my only track 5K a very tough challenge mentally, much prefer the roads.

One thing for the disaster of Wednesday is it seems to have blasted the last of the lurgy off my chest and today is the first day I've not coughed or weezed in the slightest. Best of all I can now start singing in the car again! Touch wood I can stay healthy now.

Did a nice little 4.5 just now at dusk down the river. Lovely.

Any other Easter weekend racing going on?

Another good session Deano, and yeah it will feel hard off 1MIN!!! That's a proper grim session!

I did a 40 min continuous tempo today, 20 mins @6:30 (MP) then 20 mins @6:05(HM). I felt really strong throughout which was a welcome change!

Good luck tomorrow Ric, hope it isn't too warm for you.

Dean, great session and will hopefully give you the edge for Christleton.

I'm having a go at my local forest parkrun tomorrow to put the ghost of 5 mile past behind me. I was going to do a 5 mile RR 'Run the Bridge' over Runcorn bridge but I think a parkrun then a long Sunday run will be more beneficial.

There's one on Sunday Dachs! Not sure if my legs will have recovered. 3 miles was tricky earlier. I was only plodding and felt a stitch in my side again every time I got close to 7:30 min miles!

Did a 5 mile race yesterday, it was an absolute 'mare! First 2 miles are net downhill so ran 2 slightly suicidal miles of 5:34 and 5:37, mile 3 was 6:02. Then rigamortis set in and I quickly died. Mile 4 was 6: 15 ish and with half a mile to go got a stitch which had me bent in half. Never had one in a race before, literally couldn't run. Last mile was 6:25 and finished in 30:10. Oh dear!

A guy stopped to check I was alright when I pulled up holding my side, which reminded me what a great sport running is. He would have happily stopped to help. Rob bossed it and unlike me, survived the cut-throat opening pace! Well done to Rob and many of my team mates who battered me!

Was a bit gutted last night but today is another day and I can hear the trainers calling...

Iron! Ha ha sorry mate! You weren't saying you were going to run 2:30 though! I genuinely have as much respect for the 5+ hour club as I do anyone else. That's an epic time to be out there! Having not done one yet I can't judge anyone as I might end up doing 5 hours!

Bus, looks like you got into the northern spirit with the vest! You're up here in the lakes so often, you're an honorary northerner now anyway!  Sounds like a battle against the elements. I love the sound of fell running then you do a race report like that!

Phil, sorry to hear it went wrong but like your training, it was a decision based on good sense. Live to fight another day.

Well done Lit on a fantastic time! Rest and kick hell out of those shorter distances.

Dachs, you've felt under par for a while, maybe a bit of over training? General fatigue? Or was it a self fulfilling prophecy where you expected it to go sour? BUT - this a just a few questions to help the post-mortem. I actually think that you ran a fantastic time and it going a tad wrong and only dropping 7min, thus securing another champ time is quite simply awesome.

84 miles in 8 days and feeling good. Rest today with an hour massage, that brought tears and naughty words from me! Painful!

Good luck to the London gang for tomorrow. The hay is in the barn so they say, just go out and do what you've trained for.

Did a 3 and 7 yesterday. Lots of stretching and rolling to ease the arse area up a bit. Ended spending 40min in total! Didn't even open my eyes today until 11:30 so I must have needed a good kip.

An easy 9 today then easing off slightly for the Spring 5. 4 miles tomorrow, Monday off and a sports massage, easy 3 Tuesday. Race Wed. Just need the rattling on my chest to ease a bit more.

Heart rate stuff is quite interesting, my resting rate is 46ish, my max being 194. Not sure how helpful it is for racing or hard training as you have to push your limits so you won't be staying in the 'zone.' It is good to see how 'easy' easy runs are, sometimes I run a 7:00min/mile run and think it was easy then realise my HR was a bit too high.

I like the look of some of those sessions. The 3 x 2mile would have me bent over double though at 10K pace! Might look to slot some of those in as we get closer to the GMR.
