My Last Run

Crikey Birkmyre, that's a middle of the night run in my world!  Bet it was beautifully peaceful though.

6 miles today, took it pretty easy as the legs are a touch sore right now.

Happy returns to Nessie and good to see you back hanging around.  I love France but sadly, it just isn't quite far enough south to fully avoid some dodgy weather sometimes - even in summer.  Sounds like you made the most of it anyway.

7 miles this lunch, 5 at tempo pace.  Again, I surprised myself with my pace.

JT - You're an absolute animal (by that, I don't mean that you're a white dog)

Good mileage again from Swits.  Are you stretching out a bit at the moment, seems like your distance has gone up?

9 miler to start the week, one of them a gentle shuffle with the hound.  The calm after the storm today.  Branches and twigs scattered over the path are an indication that thing got blowy again yesterday, the second Sunday on the bounce.

In awe of all you ultra runners, every finish in an ultra is quite an achievement.  Well done Dank-art, be proud of yourself for that.

13 miles today in intermittent heavy showers.  What on earth happened to our wonderful summer?

Yes Swits - Bertha's wind has indeed been an unwelcome presence around here too.  Lass has no bloody manners

Carter - going anywhere nice? (the world's most stupid question. "nah, I thought i'd book away somewhere really awful")

DD - Forgot to say, if you are back that way again (Heaton park), give me an early heads up if you like and i'll buzz down and have a run with you.  Would be nice to meet someone off the thread in real life!

7 miler today.  Felt chilly but still sweated a lot.  Odd.

Thanks JT but it's a bit of an outlier in truth.  Most of my morning runs at that HR are around the 8 mm area, as i've said before, things seem to change markedly on the evening runs.  It was encouraging though   The milk business made me chuckle but you were actually right first time, it is Lactate Threshold.  I'll be sure to check myself for leaking nipples in future....

9 miles today, back to my normal GA pace.  Harumph.

Ha ha DD, glad you got to run in the park.  You sure it wasn't her, she's a local lass after all?  Hope you got back down south in one piece.

7 tonight for me.  A very controlled run in GA heart rate zone but an very nice average pace of 7.28 mm.  Happy with that for a very easy run, I do believe some form is returning so probably time to get a race booked now.  Will have a scoot around tomorrow.

What about Jo Pavey at 40?  Incredible.  Farah and Vernon showed up tonight too, Always good to see some British success at the distance running events.

DD - Monster mileage, nice work!

Carter - That's something very special, hats off to you.  From your body letting you down for a marathon to a marathon and an ultra in the same year - great recovery and as you say, an indication of what your body can really do if you ask it nicely.

Swits - Good mileage from you too, everyone is "on it", it seems

6 today for me with 4 at LT pace.  It absolutely tipped it down and felt quite cold actually.  Bleurgh.

DD - Heaton Park is just up the road from me (well about 5 or 6 miles up the road).  I'm sure you'll be safe from getting mugged by some scruffy Manc but you can certainly have a nice run around the park.  If you play golf, bring your sticks and play the muni there - it's a beast!

Carter - Probably won't until autumn sets in.  Hope you have a great day tomorrow, i'm afraid you may have some interesting conditions to contend with mate

DD - Very testing session, marathon training is a cruel pastime

Swits - Here's to the next 30 days passing trouble free then

13 miler today.  The only thing of note was a woman bawling at me as I approached her.  Took my earphone out to see what the score was and she was informing me to be careful of the bike at my rear.  The path is maybe 3.5 meters wide, i'm not sure what she thought might happen but I thanked her for her concern all the same.

6 today with 4 x 1000m intervals.  Short but sweaty session.  Forecast told me I was due to be soaked, I remained dry.

Best wishes go to JT's left nipple.
