NN, Unfortunately I'm not going to be around that weekend, I've just been informed I'll be down in Glasgow migrating an office over onto our network, nice double day I hope the legs are feeling better for it

OH, a good JS session last night by the sounds of it

MG, a good session to get in when you have little time,

Fiona, re the recovery it is one step forward two back I think the HM has knocked me back but I'm working on it and the aches ease as I get into the run, well done with getting the progressive run done,

Jason, a good double recovery run, hope it has done the job

MG7, a good pace for your 4 mile run last night.

NP, welcome back

Tek, a nice little recovery run


A swimming lesson before JS last night, it is slow progress but I'm sure with time it will improve, an easy 5 and a bit miles after with the group,

NN, awesome job, all the miles are paying off congratulations

Jason, amazing splits you just keep getting faster and faster

Fiona, Yes Eddies is still the first weekend of November, I bet you will be glad to run in the sun, well done with the easy run yesterday and the double the day before

MG, Not long to go until the taper madness take hold, well done with the easy 7

Tek, enjoy the cutback week, a good session on the treadie last night

SM, a good set of 800's there, I would imagine your legs were a lot less fatigued back then, I would worry too much about the lack of 20's, if you managed to get a couple in you will only be a few miles short of a 100 for your longest 5 LR's

MG7, you are progressing nicely remember not to rush back, I would hate too see you back on the bench

HM, a good sign that you have already overtaken last years running totals well done with the double run


A brisk 6 with JS on Tuesday night, and an easier 8 last night, slowly starting to build up the miles again.

Tek, well done with the club run, and you're right Autumn is in the air

OH, shame about Snowdonia

SM, well done with the double day

MG7, the running is coming along nicely

NN, good to hear from you and I'm sure you will have a blast training and racing a tri

HM, well done with the running over the weekend

MG, a quality interval session well done

Fiona, those evenings are starting to draw in, but it makes the running a bit easier when it is not so hot


4 miles easyish last night a little stiff and achy at the start but it eased off by the time I finished.

I've got 11 weeks until Eddies HM which should be long enough to get me into decent shape, JS and a swim planned for this evening

Jason, a nice run today, well done

MG, an excellent long run today good pace too

Tek, nice club running, are you still on a streak?

Fiona, a quality long run with some faster bits at the end well done

SM, nice too mix it up though, well done with the run


Easy enough to 5 miles as I was running with someone, picked it up at little got to the turn at just around half way and from then it was a total hurt fest, the legs were gone just after 10 miles, just goes to show the lack of mileage and the conditions were against me today

NP enjoy the trip to New York 

SM, sorry to hear you missed the race good that you manged to get a run all the same

MG7, well done with the long cycle, and the run, good to hear you can now sart to increase the mileage

Fiona, I hope the hill reps went well, and the legs aren't to smash for your LR tomorrow

Tek, a good double day well done,

 Jason, another good double day and a good sign of improved fitness it is all very encouraging


Just a swim tonight, it felt a little bit better some of the time I suppose I'm just getting more comfortable in the water

SM, well done with the MLR and good luck tomorrow with the 10k I'm sure you will smash it!

Tek, nice run with the club

OH, a good run with JS tonight

Kaz, take it easy with the foot, how did the run going this evening

MG, cracking pace this evening, all the strength work is paying off

Fiona, sounds like a tough run for you this evening, and as you say miles in the bank


So much for an easy run with JS, I took the 6 mile group this evening and it was fairly quick for a JS night averaged 8:47 including stops at lights, I'm glad it is a rest day tomorrow the legs could do with one!

Tek, well done with the easy 4, I haven't seen any of the athletics this week

Jason, A good double day and a quality cruise interval session, dam you are fast!


Tempo run last night 3m warmup followed by 3 @ HMPish splits came out 8:20, 8:21, 8:13, slower than I was hoping for but the legs were not up for it last night, an easy run with JS this evening is the plan with a rest day tomorrow before the HM on Saturday.

NP, well done with the swim and run with Buddy,

Fiona, another great interval session, it was a bit wet last night but didn't spoil the run for me either

MG, well done with the run and pt session,

Tek, positive results from your MP run keep up the good work

MG7 good to hear the injury is improving, don't rush back and keep up the exercises and cross training

Jason, it is always good to get new kit, you would have had perfect testing conditions up here over the last few days


I went for a bit of a paddle before JS tonight trying to do drills but it wasn't very successful, followed up with an easy 5 miles with JS wet and windy but enjoyable with a little elevation on the route.

I'm going to do a tempo run this evening probably 8 miles with 4 @ HMP

Jason, nice run earlier hope the run this evening went well

Tek, enjoy the MP run tomorrow, fingers crossed for an overcast day with a gentle breeze.

Fiona, as I said on fetch he sounds like an absolute moron, nice run this evening and I agree a bit windy out

OH a good MLR ans OW swim today, 

SM, well done getting that LR done tough conditions out, enjoy the swim tomorrow

MG, a quality session tonight, good going getting some MP miles in after a tough interval session


6 miles tonight and it was a tad windy out, the legs are feeling good and I felt I was running strong, I'm very tempted to do the HM at the weekend but I'm a little concerned with the lack of decent MLRs and LRs, I haven't run anything in double figures since June,

decisions, decisions!

MG, good too see you managed to get a run in, nicely timed too

NP, well done not easy conditions during your MLR 

Fiona, well done with the cycle, it was nice this morning, miserable conditions this afternoon hoping the run went well, the longest run I've done it 8 miles, I'm no were near marathon fit, I'm contemplating Nairn half next week though

OH, you could always camp there is a small campsite next to the pickup point

SM nice double run, fingers crossed the conditions will be better for your LR, Nairn half possibly, glen moray at the start of sept and Eddies in November, I'm looking to get a good time at Eddies if conditions are decent

Tek, a good run in tough conditions, and it is better to avoid lighting so a prudent decision me thinks, good totals for the week

HM, well done getting out today 

Jason, the neck is still a little sore but managable, great totals for the week and a really good session on the track


I got wet today too, but unlike everyone else I got wet in the pool , maybe one day I'll manage to string together a few lengths,  swimming is so technical to much to think about!
