Stuart maybe now is a good time to rest up and fix the ankle properly? You've hit some massive PB improvements this year...time for repairs?

Cal hope the massage did the trick

Ollie nice double recovery - difficult to PB at short races with such a full-on schedule, so hats off to you

Tricia well done on the hilly 10, hope you managed a run on call yesterday

OH that's great planning, lol

sub17 nice mix of training again

Dr Dan well done on the family win; nice mile PB - I agree the Tad 10 was a big ask the next day !

HM thanks


Just a cheeky 3m tonight plus some strides

Ollie great new 10k PB

Cal that was a fun report - well done on the sub 2 PB

HM that's a big chunk off a 10k time, nice new PB

Well done everyone else on the training...


I had a week off: first the heatwave, then a stomach bug - still feeling weak and a little dizzy.  I've cancelled Frankfurt: I'm going to spend the next 12 weeks focusing on 5k/7k/10k, and hope then to re-start marathon training for the Spring.

6.4m this evening, 8:24mm pace, in some pleasant drizzle

Note it will take forever if you're data-mining a sub40 10k...try a 2:45 marathon first !

Fiona you're putting in some big runs - 17 on Wednesday, and 19 today ! Good luck on the hill TT tomorrow - and yes, Richmond is next week (I had to check in a panic...)


4.66m easy today, with a bit of a breeze which was nice.  Next week is going to be a 'mare hitting 30 degrees down here...

Stuart well done on the sweaty 6, enjoy the club run tonight

HM nice tempo running

Fiona for once I'm jealous of your weather !  That was a great long run, with MP and tempo thrown in too ! 

Cal well done on the tempo run - I agree with Stuart, training is going well and you could nick a sub2

Gaz well done on the 15m death run, good news on the mileage

Ollie nice going on the 7m plus strides


Noticeably cooler this evening - only 20 degrees.  I did 7m at about the same pace as yesterday, but the HR was 2% lower and with fewer spikes...shows you how the heat makes you work harder.

Stuart I hope that rubbish with the club got sorted out...

Cal fingers crossed for a cooler weekend, then

HM thanks

Ollie nice 9 with reps and well done on the 15 miler today

Sub17 nice mix there


Hot again here - 26C when I went out this evening.  I decided to skip the club run and did a steady 5.5m - 8:12mm pace average, happy enough
