VT fantastic last week - 2 subLTs, a 21 miler and 75m in total !  Well done

WP nice run, hope the bug is gone

acp eek ! ouch!  Hope you're not so sore now

DD nice Parkrunning


Still struggling a little here mojo-wise, but with only 8 weeks to go until Frankfurt I need to sort myself out. 

57m this week, one LSR (16m), one subLT (stopped after 7.5m as drift had crept in, pace at 83% was 7:39 average) then a MLR today with 5 lots of (2m MP, 1m easy) - I didn't look at the HRM for the "MP" bits, just tried to hit something around 7:4x .  Worked out fine

Gaz well done on the intervals, and well done on the long run today

PR 17 hope the 12k race went well

Stuart well done on the 10k - sounds like a good tune-up for Stirling.  I've always thought your max was probably a bit higher than the 200 you use, but that 191 average must be wrong!

HM thanks

MG impressive 18 again

OH well done on the Half, good luck for the one today


0.5m w/up then 14m of [2m MP, 1m easy] - splits came in as:

7:59 7:56 8:58 7:46 7:45 8:47 7:46 7:48 8:56 7:42 7:45 8:50 7:40 7:06 ...happy with the MP efforts, pity I ran out of time (should have been 18m).

57m for the week, 8:27 av.pace

Stuart I'm not surprised it took a while to feel your legs again !  Nice 9 miler

MG well done on the 11m - nice pace into the wind!

PR17 nice going on the bike again - I must pay more attention to nutrition, as I'm struggling with the long runs at the moment


1m w/up, 7.5m at maraHR came out as 7:39mm, bit of an effort, so I think I'll slow the next one down and push onto 10 miles. Cool down made it 10.33m for the day.

Bit sore legged this morning, so just did a 3m run around the park  MP run tomorrow (there, now committed to it...)

MG nice week's total.  Well done on the race pace session - tough 8 miles!

Stuart big hill walk !

Tricia well done for getting the 5m in on the treadie

NN great time !!  You're getting stronger and stronger, well done on the V50 silver.  Nice easy MLR this morning

PR17 hope things are going well

OH eek hope you got home ok

HM thanks

Gaz glad the ankle is ok, well done on the 9m commute


Well I didn't get the LSR done yesterday - rain was so heavy I risked both drowning and pneumonia! Better conditions today, not hot, and I managed 15.5m @ 8:42 pace (happy with that given the backpack), plus another 1m jog to/from stations.

Spen good luck on the procedure Thursday

Chick I presume Bremen is flat and fast?

DD well done on the biking and good to hear you can get some runs in now

acp that is good news !

VT hope you got some runs in while visiting the family

WP welcome

Moks hope you're ok


Well last week was a bit of a meh week - only 38m with no subLT and no long run - too hot here.  I did plan to get the LR done yesterday, but one look at the deluge before me quickly convinced me to do a 3m recovery jog instead

15.5m done this morning with some annoying drift, unexpected as it was relatively cool and a flat course...

NN well done on the easy 4.2m

Stuart well done on the long run - the heat is a killer at the moment

Tricia nice 13m with MP effort - hope you didn't have too stressful a weekend

MG cracking 18 miler as usual

OH well done on the parkrun

HM thanks

NP hope Buddy is ok, and I guess you got drenched again on today's trail run

Gaz fantastic climb on that trial run, and well done on the easy 12m. Hope the ankle is easier now


Well I live in Essex, about 20 miles outside London.  Yesterday was supposed to be 10m at MP but I knew I wouldn't do it in the heat, so opted for a club run starting at 0930.  It was already warm and muggy then, and after a 2m "warm-up" I did a few strides, got back into the car and went home.

Today was cooler and when the rain started I went out for the 10 miler at MP.  4m into the run my breathing was very laboured so I cut the run off and jogged home.

38m for the week and no long run, so that's tomorrow's early start, 20m run into London.  Praying for cooler, wetter weather.

MG great progressive 8m Wednesday, and good 9m in the heat yesterday

Stewart good news that you managed 30 mins running - well done in the pool and on the turbo too

NN good training week, good luck for the 10k

HM thanks

Stuart nice bunch of lengths, and well done on the tempo - not easy in this weather

NP that was a nice treat!  Glad the ankle is recovering...

OH enjoy the weekend


Ran a 9m Thursday, then a 4m recovery run today - hot out there again, and it's going to be 32C here tomorrow!

MG nice brisk lunchtime 5 miler, and well done on the PT session

Stuart boy that was a hard speed session last night ! Well done for getting the 10 in today; hope the groin is ok...

Gaz good treadie session - I like doing rolling intervals on the treadie, else I can't stand the monotony

Stewart hope everything went ok tonight


CBAd on the MP run this morning, did an easy 6m but that now leaves me with a lumpy load of work for the rest of the week...Garmin went ape-shit also, not just the GPS but even the stopwatch time was wrong !?  Hard re-set done, fingers crossed, or I'm back to the old one, whose battery life is unpredictable...

Recommendations for a new Garmin now the 305 is discontinued?
