Ollie nice 13m yesterday

Stuart great parkrun and well done on the CPB

OH you're in great shape ! Well done on the 10k

Tricia good to hear things are ticking over well after that 40 miler

HM thanks


Too hot here again - flaked out of the LSR and only did 11.3m, and, as it's hot again tomorrow I doubt I'll make the mileage up.  Oh well, onwards...

Stuart nice couple of club sessions and well done on the 11m

MG good luck for the 24h relay

Ollie glad you had cooler weather for the 15

Sub17 nice bike mileage, hope you're over the tumble 

Cal good early morning 10 miler, enjoy the holiday !

Fiona you're getting a good mix of training done with all those doubles

HM thanks

OH well done on the 10.4m


Slightly cooler last night, but still very muggy and sweaty - just 6m easy around the park.  Pace felt easy but the HRM disagreed slightly..

Stuart I'm hoping for 0C and a light dusting of snow

HM well done for getting the 3m in, in the heat

MG welcome back and fingers crossed for the ITB

Ollie nice 10m and well done for attempting a tempo 4!

Cal nice 4.5m including hill sprints

Dr Dan blimey that must have been hard work in this weather


Too hot to do the club run, so just did an easy 3m.  Hopefully tomorrow will be more bearable...

OH well done for bashing out the 21 miler

HM thanks

Ollie nice 10m double day

Stuart well done for getting the 6m in

Cal well done for the early start 4 miler, enjoy the yoga class

NP sorry to hear you're not fixed yet, keep up with the pool work


I couldn't get out until 0930, and a LSR in 33C was never going to be pretty.  I was alright in the shade but after about 6m I'd had enough and turned back.  11.7m done at a very slow 5k +3' pace with plenty of stops for a drink. LR will now have to be Saturday (and another one due on the Monday)

Stuart nice pace for that lumpy 12 - hope the long run went well today

Ollie excellent running on that 20 miler, and great mileage for the week

Cal well done on the early Fartlek Plus

Dr Dan well done on the 800 reps - nice week's running and biking

Fiona nice cake eating ! Good luck with today's double

Tricia awesome - well done on the PB 


Just a 3 mile jog after lunch - really hot in London, tomorrow's LSR is going to be tough...

Fiona, haha, well done on the course record

Cal that's a great long run this morning - already hot at 6.30


5.9m easy jog this afternoon - hot and humid here.  Long run next week will have to be Tuesday, when it's hitting 32C in London !  Bad planning...still, 53m for the week, building nicely

NN well done on the 18 miler - great that it felt relaxed and easy

HM thanks

Fiona nice biking and running again - hope the weather is good for the marshalling

Stuart 7 minutes recovery ! Nice easy 6 and well done on getting out for the 8 - hope you catch up on the sleep

Ollie lunch sounded good...well done on the easy gooseless 12 and nice parkrun this morning

Sub17 good parkrun and congrats on the new bike

OH well done on the hilly 13m

Cal well done on the parkrun - so close to a PB...and yes, intervals at 5k pace or slightly faster would help.


Bailed on the club champs 1k this morning - too hot, but having seen the photos posted I regret not going, as most of it was in the shade.

Just a 4m recovery jog here


oops, I forgot to post this yesterday...

Weekend Races

Sub17 sorry to hear about the bike

Dr Dan nice bike commute and well done on the lunchtime intervals

Stuart I think that was what happened - coach made her stop after the halfway point, but I think let her back in for the 3,2,1 after telling her to jog the recoveries slowly. Nothing wrong with slow training - well done on the hill reps


Just under 5m recovery jog tonight - about 8:45 pace

Ollie PB! Even after a tumble !!  Great going 

Gaz I should have said, yes, there was some red mist, but I'm over it - next week I'll join the 8mm group in the expectation they'll all run 7:45...lol
