Fiona, is that the road that takes you up to Blackfold, if it is I cycled it last summer and I had to push the bike up a short section, it was about 2 miles of pain.  The injury is improving the heel drops along with the other strength exercises I am doing is helping, the plan states that once I can do the heel drops with added weights, without any pain I can start introducing a gentle start back to running, but I am not going to rush the process, 

SM, looks like you have set a target for next month

Tek, great mileage for the week and month, well done

Tricia, sounds like you will be busy again well done with the 10 mile canal run

SM, a cracking long run today and some big miles this month looking good sir

Ollie, over 300 miles in a month is mega, I think that would break me

MG1, well done with your quick MLR yesterday 

Fiona, what hill did you run up, I did see your log on Strava

Gaz, well done getting through the training marathon, 


Not much happening here, I finally got out on the bike toady for a short 20 mile jaunt down to Dores, a bit blowy out but it was nice to have it on my back on the homeward stretch.

Well done guys and Gals, too much to catch up so will just say well done to everybody it has been tough conditions to run in over the last week.

NP, good luck with the calf, fingers crossed you won't be out for too long


I am back from my holiday break to North Wales, it is a lovely part of the world, but I did overdo it with running on consecutive days and a lot of walking I have aggravated the Achilles again, so I am back to the eccentric heel drops, I am following a 12 week rehab program, I'll look to finish this before even contemplating running, I am so sick of being injured and running with niggles is not fun I don't know why I have continued to run through it for so long, so the first step is to pull out of Aviemore HM as I would be tempted to rush the recovery to get on the start line.

Looks like I'll be be a bit of a lurker for a while but will pop in from time to time to see how everybody is getting on.

Gaz, a quality long run, well done

SM, another great session with the club, I hope the leg isn't too bad but judging by the pace it looks like you are managing it.

Fiona, a good run and bike session, and a speedy threshold run today enjoy the marshalling tomorrow, hopefully it doesn't rain

Ollie, congratulations on the course record today enjoy the recovery 3 later

Cal, another good run at parkrun today

HM, I hope you avoid the cold

S17, another consistent result at parkrun, shame about the timing mixup

NP, it is good to hear you are off the pain killers but not so goo =d that the calf is still giving you some problems, and at least you can still get out on the bike and into the pool.

Dr Dan, a good 10 mile run, good luck with the 10k this weekend

NN, well done with the 15 mile MLR, even an easy run is tough in the heat

Tek, I hope you are feeling better soon


Another comeback run today and it went well, I decided to go to the park and do short jog intervals, 2 minutes jog of a one minute walk, just over 3 miles in total and no calf pain, a few twinges in both Achilles but nothing really to worry about, I'll continue with the short jog intervals looking to increase the running time.

Fiona, I seen your cycle on strava well done with the QOM

SM, It was my first half way back in 2014, it is a little more challenging than the 10k as the first half is off road with a few single file sections, but a fast road finish as it follows the same route as the 10k, well done with the gym session enjoy the run later

Cal, sounds like you have got over the groin niggle, I am sure a bit of stretching and foam rolling will sort out the hammy

NN, some good sessions over the last few days good totals for the week

HM, good luck with the 10k plan


Not long back from a cycle out to Foyers, a stiff breeze on the way out nice to have it at my back on the way home, the good thing about cycling is you can stop to have tea and cake, very civilised

SM, I have signed up for Aviemore half in October, which will give me three weeks or so to get over this niggle

NP, sorry to hear about your calf hope it recovers quickly

MG, sounds like an encouraging run, sounds like the IT Band issue is clearing up

OH, good luck tomorrow

Tek, a cracking pace at the club handicap race 

Ollie, well done with the 11 and 6 today including parkrun I hope you took it easy 


Well the comeback run didn't go to plan, it started fine enough but by the time I got to the swing bridge on the canal the calf was starting to tighten up again, looks like another week at least with no running, I'll probably get out on my bike tomorrow,

Tek, I bet the legs were glad for the easy run today

NN, some good sessions, I think this time round you will be fine you are a lot stronger and have had a solid year of running since your PF issues, just remember to keep up with the strength work and stretching as the miles goes up.

Yellow, I hope the shin is ok

Ollie, well done a rapid 10k with a few miles added, 

Cal, well done with the yoga and 6 mile run today

Gaz, no need to acclimatise then  

SM, a cracking session with the club, 


Been AWOL again and I have been feeling a little sorry for myself, I had a setback with the calf, it tighten up and got sore when I was out for a run on it last week, not in the same area and it has been a bit sore and tender for a dew days, so I haven't been up to much, I was away with the family over the weekend and this week has been just doing some body balance and gym work last night and I got out on the bike after work tonight for a 20 mile cycle, the good news is the calf is starting to feel better and I hope to get out for a run over the weekend.

I have decided not to do a marathon this autumn, so I'll look to target a HM in October, I'll probably follow a P&L plan
