MG nice progressive 8 miler - really fast finish

NP good work on the 13.1m

Stuart well done for getting 8 done - hope the track session isn't too brutal tonight

Stewart that was an impressive session !

NN nice MLR, well done, and nice 5m recovery today

Gaz well done on the easy 8

Fiona nice to hear from you - best wishes for a quick recovery

Kamo the Pfitzinger book is great

Mace glad to see you're still in one piece on that monster mileage


Just a 4m jog for me - legs still very weary and HR elevated...

NP another cracking tempo 10 miler

Stuart did you get the tempo run in?

HM thanks

OH those are really great photos

Tricia well done on the bounce back

MG nice double run and well done on the PT session on top

Michael looks like you're building back well

Stewart nice 8 miler and good luck with the intervals

Kamo nice PB !  Congrats.  What sort of mara time are you aiming for, and what is your PB?


1m w/up then a quick 5m at MP - was supposed to be 10 but the legs still hurt from Sunday and I didn't want to risk it.

Why does this site always crash at the end of writing a long post?


NN super long run at 22m - well done to you and bruv.  Well done for the Pilates and well done for getting out again for the run

Kenno welcome - I find it's easier to train in the warm, race in the cold.  I plan my long run around drink stops - dripping sweat in a McDonalds queue is always good value

OH great report and well done!  Great result for Els too, well done both of you

Tricia well done at LK too

Stuart great long ruin, well done mate

MG nice pace for steady - a great 10 miler

HM thanks

AGF many congratulations

Gaz nice couple of 8 milers, glad the weather's getting better for running

NP nice swim yesterday, enjoy the 11

Stewart good MP running - nice strong finish


Lots of weary and stiff legs at the club this morning, so just a slow 5 miler around the park.

Joe PB is a PB - maybe you need to get some long intervals done to get more used to running slightly faster than your ever increasing MP?

NN hope the big 22 miler goes ok today - I missed the PB by 23 secs

Tricia well done at Loch Katrine - good training run

Stuart cracking week at 60m - hope the LSR goes ok today.  I think you're right - glad I went for it rather than tried to chip a minute or so...

NP well done on the pacing - great result for all concerned, and sounds like you and Budster had fun at the Waggy Races.  I just checked my times again versus last year - the last few miles in 2014 were 7:10 7:02 7:00 7:18 48; this year they were  7:22 7:15 7:16 7:32 47 - so I was losing it on the flat / downhill miles 10, 11 and 12 as much as the uphill mile 13.  Basically went off too fast and paid for it...

Sundown nice report - and a 5 minute PB is massive, well done! 

Gaz nice run and well done on the cricket win

Mace thanks - I went off Hadd for this half, and did a very taxing Salazar Half schedule - an intervals day, a tempo day, a longish run at MP, say 45- 55 miles a week.  I ditched it after failing to PB at 10k and went back to Hadd a few weeks ago...hopefully in time to rescue my Spring marathon?  Well done on the massive weekly mileage

Stewart another good week at 61.9m

OH how did you get on?


Just off out for a little recovery jog now...

Another slightly disappointing race for me - came in at 1:33:32, so 23 seconds slower than last year's PB.  45:16 at the halfway point but faded badly, particularly on the up-hills.  I think if I hadn't tried for sub 1:30, and aimed for a 1:32, I would have finished better.

Still, I came in first for the Club.  Sixty of us out there today, raising money for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research in memory of our coach, who lost his fifth battle with Leukaemia last year.  RIP Dave Bland.

Joe fantastic marathon - great PB.  Which mara is likely to be the 100th now?

Stewart nice 20 with 14 at MP - tough run!  Well done for topping 60 for the week

NP another speedy parkrun and great running on that 21.15m

Tricia well done on that MLR on the WHW, and well done on the hilly 10 on Sunday - I hope work settles down soon

MG well done on the week's total - nice quick mile reps yesterday

NN what a nightmare - well done for keeping it together, another 20 in the bag

OH nice muddy 7.5m in the new shoes and well done on the swim and run double yesterday

GazM nice report, hope the legs are recovered now

Michael good to hear you got the all clear - carry on with the slow build up

Sundown congrats on getting the second 20 done - I'm on a mini-taper too for Sunday's Half - easy runs plus some strides

HM thanks

Stuart well done on the 20, that's Jiminy Nursey out of your ear for a week  I hope the knee has settled down.  Nice week's total too.


I've been feeling a little under the weather and had to ditch the long run on Sunday. Just a couple of small runs, then 7m at maraHR in the pouring rain this morning. From now to Saturday it's just some short runs and strides, then a PB attempt at my Half on Sunday
