SM, a good double day on Sunday and you're better to rest up to avoid over training and risking injury, enjoy the rest day today

NN some great running, and totals for the week are very good too, 

Tek, well done with the double recovery run in the rain, 

MG, a cracking tempo run into a wind, well done

NP, nice swimming and running enjoy the run later

Fiona, yes I'm still on holiday and I'm not looking forward to going back to work, well done with the short run earlier enjoy the club run later


Interval session last night, decided to cut the number of reps as I'm easing back in, so it was 6 x 400m with 400m recoveries, first two reps were far too fast but I was happier with the rest, an easy run planned at JS tonight
