SM, enjoy a few easy days after your epic racing at the weekend, you have earned them

Yellow enjoy the holiday and don't worry about missing a session or two

NP, nice bit of racing, and fair play getting third after a hard 10k, the weather has been excellent, I just wish I was better running in it

Ollie, a huge month of training 

MG, I hope the stretching has helped the IT band


5 miles at lunch today, it did feel a little weird running on a work day, another hot one here, my calves are feeling a little tender after the sports massage, I'll be back in a fortnight to see if they have loosened up

OH, Congratulations on your PB and well done with the 13 mile MLR, I am not surprised it was hard going

NN, I hope the ankle is feeling ok after your swim and trial run

Ollie, the recovery miles will help.

Tek, hope you're feeling ok today, you have had more than your fair share of illness this winter/spring


a very easy recovery run down along the canal to Dochgarroch and back, 7 miles in total, followed it up with a good stretch session at body balance.

Sports massage today, my calves are really tight and a bit achy so a good mashing is in order.

SM, an awesome achievement that is a huge PB and it is all the result of your hard work over the last year, congratulations

Cal, congratulations you are running very well and the improvements keep coming

Ollie, that is a huge week, I think you have deserved a cutback week

NP, a great run and only 2 seconds down is good going, congratulations with the 1st place

Tek, nice doubling yesterday


Just a quick update, a gorgeous day in Caithness today wall to wall blue sky a bit hot with a gentle cooling breeze, it was unfortunate I could take advantage of the surroundings or the good weather today, the wheels fell big style after half way not helped with a shoelace malfunction, 50:50 on the watch.  

It was great to meet up with OH, he is running so well came breezing past me just after the 7k marker.

don't do your Long runs at race pace, you will need to run them 10% - 20% slower than MP, I would recommend reading Advance Marathoning lots of great advice on how to achieve your marathon goal

HM, sad news indeed, 

Ollie, I can;t think of a better way to finish off a long run, 

NP, hard labour in garden and some good running on the trails, do you have a target for Saturday's race?

MG, A good run with NP that is quick pace for a hilly trail run, well done with the 8 and good luck with the speed session tomorrow


Hilly run for me today after work, I added two miles to last week's run going up into Daviot Woods, I will be looking to build this run to include the 5k loop up there, this will become my 12 - 13 mile mid week MLR.

Ollie, a spoon full of sugar helps the coffee go down, well done with the 5 miles 

Yellow, indeed I do prefer to run in the rain at this time of year helps keep cool, a good interval session on the treadie


7 miles with 3 @ LT, 7:50mm average for the 3, happy with that given 5+ hours driving today and not hydrating properly throughout the day.
