NP nice quick pace on that trail 7m with Buddy, well done on the hill reps and today's soggy MLR

MG nice club run Monday, well done on the steady 6m

Stewart well done on Monday's easy 5m plus strides

NN two big weekends coming up for you!

Cal well done on Tuesday's 4m, and yesterday's 6. Lol at the swimming rant

Stuart fantastic pace on the LT run! Well done

OH hope that stormy 21 miler hasn't broken you...

Dr Dan well done on the breezy bike commutes

HM thanks

I've spent the last few days up in London - no internet (yet). 

Long commute MLR of 14m on Tuesday went ok - slow pace (5k+3') but the HR stayed under 75%max for the first time since the illness;

Wednesday was my first run with Serpentine RC, 7m around Hyde, Green and St James' Parks - I picked the 7:45 pace group to run it as a "MP" session;

then today was a recovery dodgem of 4.6m at lunchtime (never again, way too many people).

Rob well done on the 15 miler, hope the massage helped. I think you need to switch to a plan that matches your Race Date - it's not just the taper, but the long run progression that will be out of synch.

Tricia nice 16 with 10 @ MP, glad the weather wasn't too hostile

MG super week and month

Fiona well done battling through that 8, and sounded like fun on the old bike!

Michael well done on the XC mud-fest, nice pace for the 6 miler

Cal hope the body settles down a bit

NP that was a super fast 5 miler - 29:19!!  Not far off last year's PB...

Dr Dan well done on the January streak

OH fantastic long run at 21m, well done

---

Just a couple of commute jogs for me today, 7m in total.

Stewart well done for getting the 20 done, great week and month's mileage

Stuart nice pace for the 20, excellent week's work and well done on the month's total

MG another excellent run, hope the throat is better

Tricia well done on the car recovery in the gale

HM thanks

OH well done on the 13.5 - sounded brutal

NP well done in the blizzard. Hope today went well...

Cal well done on the 10.75m, building nicely

Sub17 congrats on the 50th

---

Easy 4.6m Saturday and another easy 5.2m in the pouring rain today.  45m for the week, rebuild continues...

Stuart you're right - nothing longer than 14 since September.  Well done on the gym work, and nice 10 miler today

HM thanks

Fiona nice work on the turbo and double runs - hope the rest did you some good

OH well done on the 7m with JS

MG well done on the two 9 milers - cold, wet windy and hilly !

Stewart nice club sandwich and well done on the 800's

NN you're clocking some great runs

Tricia hope you get your car back!

NP nice mix of swimming and running - good luck for Sunday

Double recovery run today, totaling an easy 7 miles

OH well done on the pool lengths

NP nice pool session and well done on the all-weather trail run

Stuart that therefore looks more like MP than HMP, and suggests that you'll finally taking a mahoosive lump out of that HM PB soon

Rob well done on the 7 miler

Stewart I don't think strides directly improve speed endurance, but they do improve cadence and knee lift, making running faster, easier - so I guess you can tolerate the speed for longer.

Dr Dan that's a nice relaxed HR for 8 miles at 8 and change.  Nice pyramid session and I'm jealous of that weight loss

---

LSR turned into a MLR of 14m as I got tired of the headwind into London - happy enough, though, as the HR is starting to settle down a bit.

NP good pool session and run on Monday, and another wet and windy double yesterday

MG nice pace in that club run again, and well done on the steady 6 yesterday

Stewart nice easy 5 on Monday, good to get some strides in too; well done on the LT session yesterday

Fiona well done on the turbo and treadie

HM fingers crossed you get better soon

OH nice double run, well done on the hill reps and badders

Cal well done on the tempo run today

Stuart well done on the 6 yesterday, and good luck with the MP run tonight.  3k race or a 20 miler?  Mmmmmm

---

4m including some strides on Monday; quick 200/200 treadie session on Tuesday, and just under 7m general this afternoon.  LSR tomorrow as the rain should have stopped by then...
