NP nice swim session and nice running with Buddy.  Enjoy the rest day!

Jason tough tempo session yesterday, well done, and well done too on the evening recovery run

NN good luck with the 22m today

HM hope you get that heating fixed quickly !

Stuart nice fast intervals session

MG nice easy 10m in the wind - well done on the last 6 days

Fiona good set of tempo intervals last night

OH that was a fairly lightly attended JS run, well done on the 6 miles


1m w/up then 9m at maraHR for me this morning.  The stats were worse than last time - HR a bit too high and pace only 7:54mm, but I felt a little tired after yesterday's MLR, so no big surprise.

Fiona nice easy 5.6m last night

MG brisk pace for that windy 8m

HM it's warming up this week...

Stewart well done on the easy 6m, enjoy the JS and swim double tonight


14m MLR for me this morning, 4m run to the club, 6m slogging through the woods and mud, then 4m tarmac run home.  Glad I got that done

Dansky well done on the hill training

Fiona nice easy run plus some good tempo intervals.  My legs are just as bad today !

MG good 6m and PT session, and good luck with the weight loss

Michael well done on the 28m bike ride

OH I know what you mean !! 

NP Great result for the club at the Antrim Shield .  Good swim and Buddy run today

Stewart I'm glad the calf was ok on the JS run, and well done for getting the swim in too


I dragged myself out for a run today, legs and back still aching, and managed an easy 5.4m this morning, then this evening was a treddie session - a short warm up then 12 x 200m at 4'00" per k off 1'00 jog recoveries.

Fiona well done on that long run

Jason nice double recovery yesterday in the rain

dsrfcno well done on the 20.5m long run, and Sunday's recovery

Stewart well done on the pool session, and the ice bucket challenge

HM thanks, hope your legs have recovered.


So, never again will I do that sodding kettlebell session.  My legs were so stiff I couldn't walk this morning, so the MLR was binned, and I only managed a 2m recovery jog this afternoon.

MG well done on the (speedy) 6.5m recovery , and impressive tempo run this morning - good progress again

HM well done on yesterday's run, and on today's 4m - eventful cinema trip !

Stuart well done on the 7.2m with some tempo intervals - hope you got the Long Run in

NP nice 12m and congrats to your mate

Jason well done on that long session yesterday - I'd have to take a piece of paper with me to remember all that!  Great mileage for the week, and it looks like I'm going to be in danger of breaking my "at least Half Jason" rule this month...

Stewart I'm glad it's not as bad as you feared - enjoy the cross training

Michael well done on the 17 miler - back on track

Londonrunner and Dansky welcome

OH enjoy the good weather !! Excellent long run today


3m recovery this morning, then down the gym this evening - 0.5m warm-up then 20 minutes with a trainer on the kettlebells.  The planned intervals session was quickly deleted as my legs felt like jelly from all the squats, and I dashed home to watch the footie instead.

NP that's a fantastic Parkrun time, well done to you and Buddy on the CB

OH beer-loading is not recommended, well done on yesterday's 7 miler

Stuart glad you got a proper night's sleep - well done on the 12.5m MLR

HM good luck in getting some miles in today and tomorrow

Fiona fantastic parkrun - well done on the course record and first lady - I'm shocked that's a higher Wava than your 10k time, as I'm sure you'll easily knock off another few seconds next time!

Michael good recovery day

Stewart well done on the easy 10 - really hope the calf is better this morning


Long run this morning - 6 blocks of 1m easy, 2m MP - really happy with the result, and glad I got it done.  Most of the MP miles were on track at around 7:50mm, and the whole run came in at 8:12mm on average.

HM thanks

Jason great day's mileage

NP nice tempo running - hope Buddy enjoyed the parkrun !

NN well done on the 12m MLR last night

MG another fantastic long run, 22 miler, well done !!


Too much beer last night meant I ducked out of the planned parkrun, and did a reasonably brisk and hilly 5.5m club run instead.
