Jimbob - I try to make it to my clubs' track session but work got in the way this week. I felt like a prat doing all the drills on my own this morning and it was really hard not to just skip the last interval. I'm glad I've done it now though - my post-run breakfast tasted amazing this morning

good effort!

BM - track training will make you quicker .... as long as you do the intervals, strides, reps etc it would help of you trained with others to help pull you along/motivate you

Really enjoyed chilling with the posse after Bupa. Had a great race 40.06 (20.05/20.01) - it was a pb but agonisingly just short of a sub40. It doesn't matter as it's all about the journey. I'm not really into 10k running but I've signed up for the Regents Park 10k on September 7th. Just have one more crack at it this year, otherwise I'll have to try to slay it at next year's Bupa. I recommend We get another big posse back for Bupa next year.it's a great course. Respec to Orbs for a strong Liverpool marathon.

Howdi, nice meeting Jools and Phil yesterday in the red zone. The conditions were good. My lack of training in May showed. My out out speed was not quite there ... So missed my target by a small amount. Still a great run and official PB 40.06 (20.05/20.01). Started off like a wild banshee howling along the Mall. Kept it fairly steady, used the drinks station both times as was drying out pretty quick. Saw my split on the clock at the 5k mat and shouted out "oh bollocks" realizing I was probably missing the 40. Jools powered past me at 6k in her dark pink shorts and slowly (and strongly) weaved her way up the field ahead of me. I held it together for a good consistant finish and will have to wait another year to crack the 40. As I don't "do" 10k.

Jools, Cool. I'll be wearing the mildly amusing BCRC blue running top with the catchphrase "where the Foch is the finish" on the back (it's a Paris thing). What top will you be sporting?

morning all, long time no speak ... I've been wallowing in injury depression (being a drama queen really) - after Plymouth had another good week of training, but it all went Pete Tong the week after that. Achilles started playing up on the return leg of my commute double, took 4 days off, then went for 9 miles slow with my neighbour - pain kicked in at 5 miles, subsided by the time I reached home but was sore for a few days after. Took a whole week off - felt like I was going a bit loopy.

Then mustered a 41.28 in the heat at the Crouch end 10K on Sunday which isn't that bad, considering its about 2 minutes slower than the Bupa London 10K (course difficulty) - and the heat. My original plan had been a sub40 but after a week off there was no chance of that. There was a guy collapsing about 200 metres from the finish and not getting any help - he had that marathon runner jelly legs/knees thing that I've seen on youtube. I took a moment to encourage him to take a breather before he attempts to "walk" the last couple of paces to the finish. Actually it wasn't all that bad, I felt stiff so I am encouraged enough to try to go sub40 at Bupa on Sunday. Have a 39.03 as a best but that was a chipped section of a half so wouldn't mind a sub40 for an actual race - currently standing at 40.49. Not sure if going quicker than 39.03 will happen given my shortness of match fitness.

talking of Bupa on sunday - whos's playin' - wanna say hello? I'm in red Zone A
