OH well done for getting the 9m in

Sundown nice 18m LSR

Tricia wow that was a difficult run! Well done on the 4.5 hours on your feet

NP cracking Parkrun! Sub 17 !!  Great 20.5m this morning too, and well done on the month's stats.

Stuart well done on that 20 with a backpack - certainly sounds like progress..  If you're racing the Half, then it sounds like a mini taper week with plenty of strides...

MG nice 5 miler, and congrats on a great month

HM thanks


Big night out last night and I failed to get up early enough for the club race. Treddie punishment was 4m at planned HM pace (6'49") - went really well, HR and breathing under control.

Stats for Feb were 230m at av. 8:37mm

Stuart !

HM thanks

Stewart well done on the easy 5 and good luck with the fizz

Dank-art welcome

Joe how are your legs today?

NP good swim session and core work, well done on the hilly tempo - glad I'm not running in your weather!.  Good luck tonight on the double


Flying today!  Strapped on the new Hokas for the first time and bounced along for 5.5m feeling great!  Ran it as a "steady" (78%maxHR) and was really happy with the pace. 10m at MP tomorrow, fingers crossed for some big bounce forward...

OH well done on the sea swim and the 8.5m run - you're still in shorts?

Stewart well done on the gym classes - good news on the Achilles

NN good track session, and nice easy 6 yesterday.  Good luck on the long run today.  Respect for your V55 club-mate but such low mileage wouldn't work for me...

HM how's the aqua jogging going?

MG nice easy, well done on the week's total


7m Club race this morning - none of the blokes turned up, so I just ran it at MaraHR.  I went off too fast and had to slow down as HR drifted badly on the uphill way back.  Averaged 7:43mm, will need to run the next one slightly more slowly.

60.8m for the week, av. pace 8:41mm, av. HR 73%max.
