MG nice easy 5 and good luck for tomorrow's backpack LSR

NN good to hear you got another run in.  I'd stick with old, familiar and supportive for the bulk of the miles...

Joe sorry to hear you're suffering.  Weather's turned now down here, so hopefully the KRR will be nice and cool.

Stewart I agree - it is a bit of a dead zone currently so rest is a sensible option.


Feeling a bit tired here, so I canned the MLR and just did 4m.  Another parkrun PB attempt tomorrow...

Stuart well done on the club intervals - bouncy sounds good

MG nice pace on that 11m MLR - well done on conquering the hill

HM thanks

NP well done on the track session, nice lengths this morning and good trail run this afternoon


8.5m easy for me, roughly 8:30 pace, all ok here

HM good to hear you're booking up another one

NN nope

Stuart you're right, it must have been a bad reading - new Garmin and strap made sense on today's tempo...

NP nice biking, well done on the swim and trail run.  Enjoy the track workout tonight !

OH nice 15 miler, hope the sunburn has calmed down


4.6m easy yesterday then 8.6m today with 6 @ HMP - had hoped to hit 6'52" but the legs just wouldn't move - ended up averaging a disappointing 7'06".

Gaz well done for getting the miles in - including a first double !

MG nice tempo running!

NN well done on the easy 4 miler

HM well done !  Nice negative split and good race report


4m here this morning plus 4 x 80m strides.  New Garmin and HR strap showed the same HR as the old one...

MG great 19 miler yesterday, and well done on today's run - hope you're not too cut and bruised !

NN great to see you up and running - not much of a jog pace though was it

Alfa nice 9 miler and well done to junior

NP nice racing, and well done on the prize.  Liked the photos on FB - impressive high back legs! Well done on the 13m trail run today

Stuart nice steady 8m, and well done on the first 1000 for the year. I didn't notice the HR until you commented - 10 beats lower than last time.  I did feel strong - so either I didn't push myself or the HRM is indeed buggered.

HM thanks

Tricia nice 14m on the trails - good to hear the niggles have cleared up


12m MLR for me today - 7m easy then 5m steady - I stayed under 80%max for the last 5m and it came out as 7:32mm, so either I've suddenly hit a rich vein of fitness, or the HRM is wonky.  I'm going to swap watches and strap next week to check...

Bit of a lazy week - 50m in total.

HADD Training Method

Moks hope you're enjoying the taper...nice relaxed 5m at 78%

VT really impressed with sub-7 at a relaxed subLT HR!!!

Spen great news that the pace improvement looks like it's bedded in now

DD now the lurgy ! Bad luck fella

Acp I agree with the others; some solid Hadd training will see you close to a sub4

Chick nice subLT! Good line in the sand...

Cybi nice pace for the HR...I normally see improvements coming in a lump, then nothing, nothing, nothing - then another lump

Futon nice 10k PB ! Well done.  I'd forget about that Hadd 193 limit rubbish....


Bit of a weird week here.

Mon - 4m of various jogs for errands, low 60's%, plus some stride(r)s

Tues - 7m hilly club run sub70% max (9:2x mm)

Wed - subLT intervals at 85% lid: 3.5m/3m/1.5m - came out as 6.5x but HR very low with spikes.  I convinced myself the HRM was wrong and changed the battery...

Thurs - 5m at 75% ceiling came out as a very disappointing 8:29mm (sub 8 last week)

Fri - 7m at 75% lid came out even worse at 8:35mm, but both days were hot, I think...

Sat - Parkrun PB attempt - 20:35 (6:37mm), so 8 seconds off the PB two weeks ago.  HR very low though - I felt strong, but didn't clock the fact that I was running 10 beats lower than a fortnight ago at roughly the same pace. Or is my HRM wrong again, despite the battery change?

Sun - chickened out of a LSR and did 7m sub75% lid (8:24) then 5m at a steady 80% lid - 7:32mm. I should be happy but...maybe I'll swap to my reserve Garmin and different strap to check next week.

50m for the week...

Stuart nice swim last night, and well done on the intervals - I would have had to quit after that first lap!

HM thanks

Joe that's a mental week - good luck

NN great news! Sounds like you've found a really good fizz - enjoy the jog


20:35 at parkrun this morning - felt strong but lost it in mile 3 - 6:37 6:34 6:44 39 (5:58 eq).  It was really hot here first thing; now pouring with rain...
