MG that's a good 15 miler battling through the elements

OH well done on the 10 miler and the sea swim

Stewart nice 5m in the sleet and wind yesterday - good luck out there today

Stuart better safe than sorry - hope the long run went ok

Gaz well done on getting out on the trails again

NP fantastic race time yesterday - hope your trail run with Buddy went ok


Bit of an interrupted session today - got up too late and only managed a 1m w/up and 5.35m steady (8 ish) before I had to get back for a MiL visit.  The winds were howling by noon, so I ran another 5m steady on the treddie watching the Spurs game, plus a 0.65m w/d.  12m in total for the day and a 46m week

MG those club runs are getting sharper!  2 + 9MP + 2 home is a big session

Stewart well done for getting the gym work done

Gaz good luck in getting those long plods in for the Ultra in Feb. Once you've recovered from the marathon, do have a few cracks at the local 5k to alleviate the boredom and to keep the legs turning over properly 

Stuart I think long runs with just two of you can be awkward - I'm having reservations myself about spending 3 or 4 hours with one club-mate.  Then again, once there's 3 or 4 of you, in gets competitive and wrecks the plan...


0.5m jog w/up then 3 x 0.75m at 5k pace off 400j. Now beer and footie.

Stewart nice LT session, well done

OH thanks, hope the back has eased off a bit


9m commute run for me.  I think these last few weeks of (relatively) low mileage, plus this persistent cold, have cost me a lot of fitness - breathing very hard and HR very high.  On the plus side, I've found out that a club-mate is training for the Marathon des Sables, so I might tag along with him to make sure I get some (very) long slow runs in.

MG that's a good 14 miler in the wind and cold

Stewart nice 8 miler on the trails, and good recovery 6

OH well done on the slippery 11.7m

Gaz nice report and well done on those splits - looks like you handled the climbs very well

HM thanks

Stuart nice pace for the 16, well done and great total for the week

NP well done on the parkrun time, and nice brisk 10 miler this morning


Just a half mile warm-up then 3m of rolling half miles at HMP off MP recoveries.  Heel started playing up, so I called it a day - it was time to put the roast chicken in anyway !  A lazy 25m for the week.

Gaz !  Fantastic result, well done


I managed to get out of bed for the club run - the first in a few weeks - just in time for the light snow to turn into driving rain.  5.4m plod around the park, very muddy underfoot.
