HM thanks

NN nice MLR before work

Stuart nice recovery run - hope you get the 12 done tomorrow

MG rapid 17 miler!  Well done...I'm already feeling sorry for you struggling in that nasty tropical climate

DoD nice 12 miler - lucky you got the lift

Tricia nice treadie recovery - 30 kph! 12 second 100m pace...Jesus!  Helmet required...


15m longish run for me this morning, averaged 8:47mm - hot again here, struggled with the backpack again, and had to resist the temptation to jump on the Tube to get home earlier. More miles to make up tomorrow!

NP well done on the swim and tempo run in the rainstorm

MG nice easy and well done on the PT session

Stuart LOL.  Good club speed session yesterday


Another 5.5m run here today - should have been longer, so now I'm facing an ugly back end of the week, mileage-wise

Tricia that was a tough day back at work!

Stewart nice cross training, fingers crossed for the fizz tomorrow

NN good luck for the race tomorrow night

Stuart that sounds like the right decision.  Well done on the gym work.  I fell over in the woods Tuesday.  My arms were out to break the fall but I hit the girl in front, so pulled my arms back and landed on my chest. Nothing broken,  just sore.

NN nice course PB and congrats on third lady

MG congrats on getting your GFA confirmed - and to your brother and nephew too


17 miler this morning for me in the pouring rain - ran it as blocks of 3m MP, 2m recovery - averaged 8:17mm.  I know it should have been either 18 or 20 but I was too cold and too wet...

53m for the week again, av. pace 8:22mm

OH well done on the swim session

Tricia hope the weather's kind

Claire, like MG said, missing one long run is not a disaster.  I usually try to get up early and get some miles in before it's too hot.  Take a backpack and get some miles in whenever a trip to the shops is required - I normally end up doing two or three short runs per day...the miles all count

Stuart hope you're ok

MG nice 14 miler, looking good


7m here this morning - chest still hurts from the fall (which reminds me, better take some more Ibuprofen)

NP good swim and nice forest run with Buddy

MG good double 6 + 6.  I'm hoping to get down to about 7:30-ish, but I need to get those sessions up to 10m twice a week with no drift.  Happy with the progress so though...

HM thanks

OH well done on the swim session


6m this morning in the rain, including some strides.
