MG, well done getting that early morning run done, I'm useless at getting out of my bed in the mornings, good luck at Brum on sunday

OH, Sounds like a good run with JS last night, good luck getting past the hundred.

SM, well done with the speedy 5k, good luck tomorrow at parkrun

NN, sounds like good advice from the coach, and well done with the interval session, 

Tek, a wise choice, no point delaying the recovery by aggravating it further.

Good luck to all that are racing at the weekend .


Almost 8 miles last night with 4 @ JS, no run this evening I went for a sport massage instead, I'm treating this as a cut back week, with all the extra hours at work something has to give.

Will look to get a short tempo run in tomorrow and a MLR on Sunday, enjoy the weekend folks

NP, a great start to the XC season

RJ, well done with the treadie run

OH, a lovely photo, looks yummy!

MG, a great run in terrible conditions if I remember last winter was an especially tough one weather wise down south

NN, great to hear the legs are feeling strong, sounds like a very good club run

MG7, a tough run to fit in at lunch,

AGF, how it going mate hope all is well


no run for me last night, I got a bit of a bad reaction after the MLR on Sunday so decided rest was best, the hip flexors were tight and a bit sore so I didn't want to risk further damage, I did a fair bit of stretching last night after a soak and it seem to have helped a bit, maybe this enforced break will help.

MG, A good run today, what are your plans for the coming week before your HM

RJ, sounds like a really good run, well done

Tek, ouch!, roll on top of a golf ball or a bottle with frozen water in it, you're not having a great taper

HM, fingers crossed you can get out

Fiona, another good long run, and the pacing with the watch must be good if the faster miles felt ok

SM, wow an excellent week 44 miles on the second week of recovery after Baxters,

MG7, well done on that hilly 12 yesterday, sounds like you had a great run

NN, good to hear the legs are starting to feel better, it is also good so see the pace increasing too


Just a little over 6 miles yesterday, down to the Clachnaharry point, the views were stunning looking up the Beauly Firth

14 miles today, felt ok but the hip got a little tight so I stopped for a stretch which helped, 47 miles for the week, which I'm happy with considering the 2 enforced rest days.

A similar week ahead with no running on Tuesday or Wednesday,

SM, a great swim, enjoy the easy run and the footie

HM, not long until the 10k, 

RJ, a well deserved rest, I'm sure it will do no harm

Fiona, hope the dizzy spells have passed, a good set of intervals all the same and your easy pace is around my tempo pace!

NP, good luck with the first XC race of the season,

Tek, I agree with the guys, you will probably recover faster with an extra day or two of rest, and as Fiona says you've done all the hard work

MG, you must recover very quickly, and I'm sure you will have a good race

MG7, some good runs there, I hope you have dried out!


After two days of 16+ hours of work I managed to get a couple of runs in, 11 miles with 6 at JS last night in the rain and hill reps x 7 at stratherrick, didn't feel so great on the run home, but I think it was because I was hungry and a bit tired.

SM, well done with another easy run

Mace, the suit was zipped right up


9 miles last night 5 @ tempo pace, had a forced stop just after 4 miles with a train barrier coming down, I found it quiet hard to get started again

splits 7:37, 7:39, 7:42, 7:49, 7:51

I ran a little too quick at the start!

Tek, get well soon, is that a new streak record?

NN, enjoy Yoga, one of the nights Body Balance was replaced by Yoga, I found it a lot harder to do, good luck with the speed session later in the week

MG7, sounds like a nice walk at the weekend

Fiona, well done with the long run with the quick finish

SM, well done getting another easy run done, you are recovering very well

RJ, congratulations that is a massive PB and a really strong finish to the race,

MG, Congratulations I loved the report, amazing splits all the way it was so consistent, just goes to show what you can do off an excellent training campaign,


tempo or cruise intervals tonight either way it going to be a tough session

Fiona, another with a strong finish well done

HM, well done with the 4 miles and it is encouraging that it felt easy

SM, 20 for the week would be awesome straight after the marathon, 

NP, that is quick! Enjoy the MLR  today

Fiona, not a bad day for a run today, hope it has gone well

MG7, well done with the 5, good splits there

MG, RJ, good luck looking forward to the race reports


4 miles very easy, giving 52 for the week, I won't be able to maintain that due to work over the next few weeks as I won't be able to run on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings due to very late finishes
