Jools - I had an absolute stinker, 16.46 although I didn't try very hard and was exhausted from 4 days at Euro Disney.

Well bugger me there's some serious training going on, wish I was part of it.

Lev and PP - Absolutely flying.  2.32 should be a toddle for you 2, no pressure....

Bains - That's a great track session.

Dan - Fuck me you have some bad luck, chin up mate and crack on to the next one.

Padams - Good luck in tonight's race.

Hope the ribs clear up TR and CW.

The running gods are currently against me after being given the all clear from the doctor following my heart "flutter", old age she said!!!, it appears she looked at the ECG a second time and there's a slight irregularity and wants me to have an ultrasound, although her words were "there's nothing to worry about", easy to say when it's not her heart.

In the meantime I've tweaked my hamstring and had the Budapest marathon change their date so I can no longer run it!!! (probably a blessing in disguise).

So there's no A race this Autumn, I'm in decent shape, a 24 miler at 6.20 average 26bpm under marathon HR the day after a 15 miler with 10 at 5.33.  Obviously I don't want to push things until given the all clear (for the second time) having said that I've been wearing a HR monitor and there appears no issues, either resting or running, I'm in limbo as to what to do.

Sorry about the me post.

PP - back to back pb's, top stuff and well deserved.

Dan- great park run and a nice little sharpener before your 100k

CW - hope that niggle clears up.

after being given a clean bill of health mid week I jumped back into training, a killer TT style tempo, hills, tempo and Thursday, 2x5mile Friday and yesterday a15 with a progressive 10 which started at 5.50 and ended in 5.20 for a 5.33 average.  Now for a long one.

Lev - Get out there, run with some friends and just enjoy it, garmin-less and/or up hills is great as per Padams advice.  The mojo will soon return.

PP - congrats - sounds like less than ideal conditions.

AL - Great 50K and love the idea of a sprint finish

Jools and ON7 - Top 10K'ing..

I raced Friday night and was shit, off road(but flat) 10K in 33.15 for 2nd place, I'm not sure if the Heart flutter from earlier in the week was on my mind but I couldn't get in the hurt box, HR seemed elevated so I'nm going back to the doctors, no running, or maybe just easy running for the nxt week.

TR - Sounds like fun.

DrD - Not sure if I have a target time, sub 2.30 would be nice and set me up for a decent stab at a pb VLM 2015.  Having said that and judging by the results it could be more of a race than a time trial.

Dan - That's an amazing picture.

Dan - do you do that stuff by yourself?  I'll be honest it sounds absolutely fantastic and right up my street.

DrD - Happy birthday.

Tmoth - A heart rate monitor may help with the perceived effort levels.

PP - I'm still on doggy paddle mate, your Tuesday sessions are unbelievable.

TR - Hope the legs improve, sounds like a good Lido session.

Tmoth - As others have said, looks like you nailed it.  I've done a few BAC sessions and they're pretty tough work on your own, esp. in the morning.

Padams - Sounds positive.

TT - Budapest this Autumn, haven't a clue if it's fast or what the competition will be, I'm basically incorporating it into a long weekend of drinking and eating good food with the significant other!!


I had a heart flutter Monday night, popped the Hr monitor on for the night and morning until I could see the doctor and everything seemed fine.  the Doctor said my heart is fine (after we got past the usual low HR conversation) but to take it easy for a couple of days.  by all accounts the odd one is fine but it can become a concern if it happens regularly.
