Tek sounds like a good club run yesterday

Mace, good to hear from you and I hope the training is going well, interesting point about the MP runs, it is something I'm going to look to do more of for my next campaign.

NP, well done with the hilly work and diving, sounds like you're enjoying your break away

RJ, I agree with SM, I wouldn't race to HR but to perceived effort, 

SM, I did Eddies last year after Baxters and that was around 6 weeks and I managed to get a PB,

OH, those hills in the 2nd half are tough especially after mashing the quads on the downhill section at the start, once again well done

MG, another good run last night, I'm sure those sniffles won't come to anything, it will soon be time for the carb loading to begin

dsrfcno1, congratulations on completing your first marathon, welcome to the club


10.4 miles last night 5 miles easy with JS with 3 and 2 either side, it was quite muggy out last night hopefully it will be a little fresher this evening

NN, impressive splits and very consistent, you paced the race perfectly, what really surprised me at baxters last year was the amount of runners that would walk up the hill at Dores and Scaniport, I would not have been able to get started again if that was me.

RJ, I'm sure you will have a great race at the weekend, enjoy the 10k later

BD2, well done with the HM, and good luck with the ballot place,

Kaz, amazing that you managed to complete the race, please take the time too recover well

SM, that would make for an entertaining finishing video

MG7, well done with the interval session,


5 miles last night I didn't have time for anything else as I got out late, it was an enjoyable run no wind and quite warm and the legs felt good all the way round.

JS tonight I've got no idea what group I'll be taking so may have to add a few miles before and after.

Tek, a good session today

SM, I enjoyed the race report, and it is a PB so take heart, those times will come down I'm sure, and fingers crossed I'll join you on the start line up at Whitebridge next year

MG7, the rain doesn't bother me too much I'm kind of used to it living in Scotland, well done with the 12, good pace too

NN, I'm glad that you enjoyed the marathon at the weekend, and well done beating  the A target awesome job

OH, Another big well done and a good time too, a perfectly paced run given the lack of walk breaks


easy run or hills tonight I'll decide when I get home

NP, c was the correct answer LOL,

SM, I watched you coming in and you did have a grin on your face I shouted out but I suspect you didn't hear me, well done it is a tough course and you will get that time down on a faster course

NN, I also seen you crossing the line once again another with selective hearing

MG, well done with the short run earlier

Tek, great stats for the week

CL4, well done with that 10k time you'll duck under 50 next time out, good luck with the ballot, if not I'll see you in Manchester


10 easyish miles this morning before the festivities got underway at the Bught, HR was a little elevated but I was a tad dehydrated, watched the marathoners coming in didn't get to see OH or Kaz, I'm looking forward to hearing all about their experiences along the banks of the Loch.

SM, great to meet you today and good luck tomorrow,

RJ, the guys will post a report of their race once the have time, well done with the quicker than expected 10k 

MG, well done with the MLR, easy does it now in this final week

Tek, well done nice to get the final long one out of the way

NP, sounds like you're having a great time over there, enjoy the warm weather while you can

Good luck to all that are racing this weekend


7.5 miles today with a tempo paced parkrun 25mins, it was a bit breezy out this morning so there was no chance of a PB and the course was changed due to an event happening along the loch side tomorrow.

thought I would let the rest of you guys know I've signed up to do Manchester marathon next year, so once I've got Eddies out of the way I'll back on the marathon grind

Tek, a good run today even if it wasn't the distance you hoped to do,

NN, I haven't been on Facebook for a while, and I believe you would be better off missing the pasta party, you would be better off eating out in the town

SM, I will look out for you tomorrow, 


Around  7.5 mikes this evening with some hills as promised, kept it easy on the flat and descents, Parkrun sandwich tomorrow probably around 7 miles again

MG, well done with the 6 mile run,

Tek, A nice recovery run yesterday good luck with the long run today

NN, sounds like the taper has done its job,

OH, a good run with JS last night

SM, I'll try and get down on Saturday, the conditions look favourable on Sunday, might be a tad warm

MG7, well done with the club run, it will soon be time for the hi-viz and head torch to be worn on my evening runs it was dark by the time I finished last night


6 miles last night with JS, at a decent lick averaged out to 8:15mm at little faster than I was planning, another easyish run tonight but might try to get a hill in there somewhere.

MG, well done with the easy run, the legs should be getting some life in them now you're in the taper

Tek, another good MP run solid figures, what time are you hoping to get at Frankfurt

OH, I really wish I was on the start line with you all maybe next year.

SM, well done with the easy run today I see on fetch you're down to do Inverness parkrun on Saturday

Fiona enjoy the warm weather training

NP, enjoy the break away in the sun

MG7, well done with the steady 8, fingers crossed the rest days have helped


6 miles easy last night on my Craig Dunain loop, the hip is still a little stiff but the stretching is helping, will keep my runs easy this week as there is no point making things worse

NP, congratulations an awesome achievement, and a good result for the daughter in law too, a real shame about buddy's paw

Tek, well done with the HM plenty of time after your marathon to target the shorter stuff, a good recovery 3 this morning, get those glutes and hammies stretched!

NN, easy does it this week just keep those legs turning over

HM, well done with the running yesterday,

Fiona, need to get some L plates for that mower, lol

MG, nice pic


No run today, just as well very stiff and achy in the hip flexors, some rest and stretching required

SM, nice easy run yesterday and today, I'll join you at parkrun on the Saturday if you're up

MG, well done getting the last LR out of the way, you have had an excellent training campaign and I agree with NP it is looking good for a PB in a few weeks

RJ, that is a quick 5k time

NN, a great session yesterday I'm sure the pain in the butt is nothing to worry about

NP, can't wait to hear about the tri today


12 mile MLR today in truth I probably ran it a little on the quick side but it did feel comfortable, an enforced cut back week ahead, but I think I am due one anyway.

44.8 miles, 7:04:14, 9:28mm @ 149(78%)avgHR biggest week since March!
