Stewart nice 5 miler, have fun with the JS sandwich tonight

HM thanks

NN nice splits

RJ enjoy the easy 10k

Barbara welcome back Sorry to hear Windsor didn't work out - it was a hot day! Hope the legs are a little better this morning.

Kaz ouch, you're a tough lady to carry on in such pain.  Hope you're in a better place this morning...

Stuart cheers

Michael well done on the intervals session


6m fartlek with the club this morning - fast through the woods and country lanes, with a few stops, bit of a slog back through the fields.

MG nice easy 4 yesterday

NP that's really funny, although I do hope the old boy is ok today !

HM well done on the 3 miler

Stewart good 10 miler, nice day out too

Michael good 12 mile run, speedy middle section !

NN great result, great splits with a strong finish! Well done

OH well done, good to hear you ploughed on running all the way. Have fun in Switzerland

Stuart sorry to hear it went wrong again.  Nice race report, and I'm glad you've bounced back well.  If you decide to focus on the Half for the Spring, I look forward to swapping notes on nailing the sub90


Quick but relaxed 3.25m this morning, followed by half a mile of rolling 100m hard, 100m easy.  All good here

Andi how was Loch Ness?

Moks that's some fell run!  Good luck with Snod

Dr Dan I really thought you were going to nail it this time - but 23C is way too high for a reasonable HR print.  Well done, fingers crossed for cooler weather in 4 weeks' time.  Hope you recover quickly.

The taper was a typo - the next four weeks are 70 with a 22, 54 with an 18, 37 with a 13, then Race Week (only about 13m), so I guess that's a 3 week taper.

Pacers?  The pens are big and I never found one! I suspect if you get in the pen early and at the front it should be easy.

Hi SJ - looks like you won't be lacking endurance after an Ironman and a 35 miler.  I've done this the last two years - awesome event.  Aiming for 3h29 this time.

RJ LOL at the easy 10k

Stewart good news about Manchester, well done on the parkrun tempo

Colin welcome back, and well done on the GNR and Pitlochry 10K

HM thanks


The week ended with a whimper here - I was a bit tired after yesterday's 20 and then a late night out, so just a 3m recovery jog for me.

Week's stats: 57m in 8h19, av pace 8:46mm, av HR 72%max.

NN safe journey

Stewart nice hilly 7.5m last night

RJ hope the easy 10k went well

Stuart nice parkrun plod. 

MG excellent 12 miler, well done


Fourth big run, one more to go - 19.6m this morning, all easy, 9m on my own then a hilly off-road 5m with the club, the rest a run home on the tarmac.  Feet-up watching the footie now

Can't wait for the race reports!

Dr Dan I hope it was all just the usual taper madness / maranoia.  Good luck for Sunday
