Tek, a cracking pace for MP the other day and a good run in the heat today, enjoy the early rise tomorrow

SM, I think it is possible, staying injury free is the key, 

NN, I hope parkrun went well for you today

MG, enjoy the rest day you have earn't it


about three miles between the cross trainer and treadmill last night before pump and I did the parkrun route this morning, I done it a little later as I didn't want to risk racing it, the last mile was a 8:30mm felt like it was threshold pace!

Good luck to Millsy and Bookie today, and congrats to Westy with a new 5k pb, I'm slowly getting back into it, I did run round the parkrun route today, deciding to do it later as I didn't want to risk racing it!

MG, nice running enjoy the early morning run

NN, Great to hear you're running without any issues, you could always look to do a marathon in the autumn instead

SM, I think you're going to take some time off those shorter distance PBs this summer

Tek, not so hot here!, well done with the 6

Jason welcome back, great to hear you have recovered from the injury, nice MLR with a fast finish


Just some short reps for me an 15 minutes on the treadie, so far this week, I might try a 2 mile run around the park tomorrow after work.

NN, I'm sure it will be ok, the ice treatment will no doubt have helped, a good pace on those intervals

OH, what have you signed up for now

MG, well done with the training marathon, looks like you paced it perfectly

NP, congratulations with the 5k race and good luck over in the states at the games

SM, give yourself a day or two off too recharge those batteries

Tri, Fort William looks like a good marathon hope it is not too hot though!

Tek, hope the niggles are getting better


First tentative steps back into running, I've done two sessions, 10 x 1min and 12 x 1min, so far so good, there are definite signs of improvement, there was a little tightness and minor discomfort during the reps but there is no pain on or around the tendon after finishing.

I'm going to continue to take it very slowly.

MG, sounds like a tough session today well done with the continued improvement with the health stats

NP, well done with the cycle yesterday and the run and swim today, enjoy the 10k with your lad

NN, well done with the interval session good pace too, enjoy those laps tomorrow, 

SM, Nice 10 miler, good to finish the run strong

Tek, nice little recovery run.

OH, great to see you're swimming already well done


I got some more treatment last night definite signs of improvement the calves are a lot looser and the Achilles is settling down, the plan is to cross train for the rest of the week and as long as there is no issues I'll be able to do short reps on  the grass.

I've been to the gym over the last two days, it is good to be doing something, pump and a short gym session tomorow

SM, well done getting out there when tired enjoy the run if you decide to back out

NN, Enjoy the rest day

OH, lol, good too see you're on good form

MG, great totals for the week well done, 

Gaz, sounds very sensible, good luck with the sub 95 attempt


pump this morning was a tough workout and I didn't have time for anything at the gym, I had to be re-inducted due to the new equipment I'm looking forward to trying some of it out, I went out with the family up to Glen Afric this afternoon taking advantage of the good weather, around 4 miles on the trails, walking only!

OH, thanks for the definition, I do tend to get a little confused with it all, good to hear you're on your way back home, nothing like sleeping in your own bed

NN, thankfully no swelling here, but I was told that was not uncommon, I didn't realise it was so bad for you, but it goes to show what a little patience and hard work can achieve.  Thanks for the advice it is appreciated

Joe, congratulations on reaching 100 marathons an awesome achievement, good luck this weekend 

MG, a great run in tough conditions well done

SM, that hill session looks like a tough session, shame you missed the football

Tek, I hope you enjoyed your rest day 

NP, nice trail running enjoy the MLR tomorrow


nothing of note to report, I will be going to pump tomorrow and the gym,

NN, SM, Phs says it is Achilles Tendinopathy there is no visible signs of inflammation, swelling etc. to be fair I have not been given the go ahead to run, but couldn't resist, there does appear to be a lot of conflicting articles with regards to running whilst going through some rehab, I guess I just wanted to test the waters, the good news is the gym has re-oened and I will be making the most of the new equipment that has been installed.

MG, A busy week indeed, keep up the good work,

OH, fingers crossed the op goes ahead today, good luck,

NP, cracking splits the heat appears to agree with you

SM, nice running, well done

Fiona, the weather has been great over the past few nights perfect for a cycle

MG, well done a good run on tired legs

Tek, speedy reps around the park, good luck with the marathon training,

NN, sounds like a good interval session, well done


Over the past couple of nights I've done some short reps, 1min x 12 off 30secs on the grass, no noticeable negative effects from the running so I'm going to continue with them along with the heel drops and rolling.  I've got no idea how long this is going to take to resolve but I'm not expecting to be running a marathon the autumn.  The most important thing for me now is to get running pain free as soon as possible.
