Stuart    "my recoveries last week consisted of 2 minutes of lying on a wet service road..."   LOL...well done for getting out for the 6m

HM thanks...we actually had a bit of snow here in Essex today !

NP nice double yesterday, good swim this morning and well done on the trail run with Buddy again.

MG nice steady 9m - sounded grim underfoot

Tricia well done outside and on the treddie - hope you get to do that LSR along the WHW

Stewart nice 12 miler - hope the quads are better after today's rest

NN well done on that 13.25m MLR today


7.75m road run this morning, legs were tired after the intervals last night.

Stewart nice 4m recovery run last night

MG well done on the steady 6m and another PT battering

HM thanks

NN nice tempo running - particularly, as you said, 2 days after that windswept 20 miler

GazM nice 8 miler - have fun with the family

OH - added the races.  Good luck with the JS run. North Pole marathon?  I can't even imagine doing those sort of events!


Well I got that bastard interval session done: 1m w/up, 2m at 6'40", then 4 x 1m at 6'40", all off a 3'00" jog.  Ouch.  Now looking for somewhere to hide and sleep this afternoon...

Mace hi ... I'm not in the same shape as I was this time last year, but I'm getting there.  Doc gave me the all clear, so fingers crossed. Good luck with the monster mileage

Fiona well done on the easy runs and great news you're out on the new bike. Nice intervals and enjoy the garage tonightIntervals for me? Doing mile reps around Euston in the hail was never going to happen...

Stuart LOL + nice swim and well done for getting the reps in.

Tricia well done for getting the intervals done

GazM fast ! Whoosh, some hill !!  Mara #2 noted

NP another good double -mileage building well.  Good reading on that link...13m in the snow too today !  Great running

HM good luck with the knee

MG nice easy and well done on the PT session

Stewart another solid club sandwich


Predictably the intervals didn't happen - I've got (2m + 4 x1m) all at 10k pace penciled in for tomorrow instead of the club run.  3m bimble tonight after we got back was all I could manage.

HM thanks

NP good swim and turbo - good luck on today's double

Stewart nice LT session - I know exactly how you feel facing an extra mile next time!

Joe fantastic double mara weekend, and well done on Monday's steady 8m

MG great tempo session

OH hope your Dad was ok; back to the real weather now


12m MLR club sandwich this morning.  I have to take notsolittleTek to one of those Uni Open Days tomorrow, which basically means me standing around in the cold for 5 hours - not sure when I'm going to get the intervals session done...

NP sorry about the PR, but nice easy trail run with Buddy.  Hope the race went well today...

OH well done on the PR sandwich - in shorts!  Lol

Joe another one bites the dust - 3h24 is not slow, either ! Hope today's went ok, too

Stuart nice 8 miles and good PR effort.  Well done on the LSR this morning, and good total for the week

Stewart good LR with MP - that's a tough session.  Well done on today's recovery

NN I heard you the first time

HM thanks

MG nice easy 5 and well done on the week's total


Club race of 6.8m today, hilly route with some nasty ice patches - managed 7:25mm overall but suffered badly on the hills.  Annoyingly 3 secs per mile slower than last year...

59.6m for the week.

NN...nice 9 miler and well done on the strides

Kamo hope that calf niggle stays at bay - wobble board sounds like a good idea

Stuart nice slow 12m - have faith, it's progress!  Fantastic set of intervals yesterday - very jealous

NP Tiverton  Nice double yesterday and good work on the Core again

OH well done on getting the run in - hope your dad's ok

HM thanks

MG well done on the easy 6 after all that driving

NN well done on the cross training and good MLR.  I've logged your race changes.  I didn't get out for the second run - took Stuart's advice

GazM well done on the hilly 12 miler - beer reward sounded good


Didn't sleep well last night so today's LR was a real struggle.  I was supposed to get a few sets of MP miles in but my legs weren't having it - 16m done, averaging 8:57mm.

NP nice long trail run with Buddy.  Good luck on today's double and core work (eek!)

HM thanks

Stewart well done on the recovery run and gym class

Razkatz welcome - for general flexibility I'd vote for yoga, hot baths, using a foam roller every day and getting into a stretching routine after each run.


7.5m club run for me this morning, mostly on the road.  It wasn't quite the mileage I was due to do, so I might do a short recovery run this evening.  Or maybe not...
