MG7, another good week and an impressive 5k time the day after a 22 mile run.

Cal, Well done with the MLR today, just keep doing those exercises and you'll get those glutes sorted.


I only did a 9 mile GA run today, I did find it a bit of a struggle today even with the reduced mileage this week the legs were not as responsive as I would have liked.

Only 23 mile for the week fingers crossed the next one will be better.

Some great running over the weekend well done all, it has been an enforced cutback week because of the lurgy, hopefully I am over the worst of it now even though I still have a bit of a nagging cough, only 23 miles for the week with 9 mile GA run this afternoon in the wind and rain.  Fingers crossed I'll be fighting fit next week as I am bring forward a 20 miler as I have a HM the following week.

OH, well done with the 12 and sea swim today, 

Tek, another good run today

NP, a very good time at parkrun today, unbelievable, I'm afraid getting a little splash-back during parkrun is almost a weekly hazard you would have thought given our cliamate,..

Mr Soft, welcome and great advice from NP as always.

SM, congratulations smashing your parkrun PB and I think it has been on the cards for a while now, I bet there is a lot more to come too


A short recovery run this afternoon to test the lungs more than anything else, the first mile or two were a little uncomfortable but the breathing did get easier as the run progressed, I'm not sure what I'll do tomorrow it is meant to be 16 with 12 @ MP, I don't think that is advisable.

I decided not to bother going out as I started to feel a bit crappy again, hopefully a good night's sleep will help.

SM, good luck with parkrun tomorrow, personally I don't think I could do a marathon in training, even at an easy pace it is still going to take some time to recover from and could be potentially risky,  although some people do them all the time and swear by them.

Tek, nice doubling  good to hear the fitness is returning

Happy Birthday Tom I hope you're having a great evening out celebrating

Westy, very cute, 

I decided not to bother going out, I am feeling a bit crappy again I don'y think I will gain anything and it may hinder my recovery

I am 44 and will be 45 in  a few weeks, I didn't start running until I was almost 41 and I still class myself as a newbie. I've been under the weather for a few days but got out for a run last night, I've still got an irritating cough and a banging headache, I am thinking about going out for a GA run this evening I think if I keep it easy I'll be ok

NN, you have had a great start to the year and I think there is a lot more to come well done with the run after work

Dr Dan, well done with the bike miles it must be tough with all the wind about

MG, well done with the weight loss, that will help and I'm sure it won't be long until your core strength returns

NP, You are getting lots of miles in the bank, enjoy the rest day tomorrow

Cal, well done getting the 6 done, 

SM, some great speed on your LT run last night and a good MLR this evening to back it up, 

Tek, a good run with the new club 

OH, well done with the wet run with JS tonight


Another easy 5 with 8 strides tonight after a couple of days off, I have been a little under the weather and with my hip niggle I decided to take advantage of the man-flu, it was nice to run on fresh legs for a change.

Tricia well done with the MP run

S17, still banging out good times at pr

SM, awesome run and two LR's in a week in hardcore, brilliant totals for the week and month

Cal, a good run and you'll manage fine at your HM in three week's time

NP, well done volunteering at pr and a nice little leg stretcher, I hope the race has gone well


I got my first 20 miler bagged today, not the greatest run I had but it is done now and I pick a cracking day for it no wind and no rain/snow in sight, the pace was really slow which is not a good sign, 58 miles for the week and 226 miles for the month, I am very happy with both,
