Bainsjp - close call on the commute drama. I attempted to run to work this morning but aborted after 2 miles as the rain was particularly bad, there is commitment and then there is just plain lunacy. Given my busy week of training so far, today was going to be an easy day anyway. Hopefully I can make up the 5 or 6 miles later on.

its called Inbred. It's A bit of a Deliverance type film. The tag line is, they came in peace, they left in pieces. It looks kind of funny. But I don't do gore so can't watch it!

Ha Ha Thirsk. I have two workmates who live in Thirsk and work remotely (our office is in London where I am) Also, a pal of mine wrote and directed a horror film in Thirsk a couple of years back. He's into his gore which I don't really like too much so I have given it the swerve. I think it's been doing well in Europe, Japan and the DVD market.

TD if you make it to the start , run it and finish it that will be a damn fine achievement. Enjoyment should be the priority

regarding the defining a tempo run thread, for me it's an effort which I suppose is similar to my marathon pace (or slightly slower) on the flat but still giving it some. I'm not able to produce the same intensity in training as in a race. Half marathon pace slotted into a tempo run lasts for about 2 miles at best. Because of the undulations in my area, I'm more interested in the HR to define the effort.

ES - can't say I'm a fan of night time (in the dark) running. I never do any of it at pace. Nice MLR.

Padams, not pushing it too hard at 2:35s on the 800s?. Ha Ha! I might be able to produce a 1 x 2:35 at gut busting eye popping pace and I'd be on the floor after. Nice session!

I have to say I'm a little tired after yesterday's madness and ran in today at snail pace - actually 8:34 average for 7 miles recover run, the legs would not go any quicker. The HR was low 120s on the flat and downhills and higher on the uphills for a 130 average. It was a nice plod taking in Hampstead heath, and as I reached the office, the garmin beebed the 7th mile completed and I pressed stop straight away. My running time was 01:00:00

Last night's track session was good. 2 x 1600s with HR in the mid 170s and in 2 of the 8 of my 400 reps I managed to get it into the 180s, with the rest in mid/late 170s.   On the last one, I just dug in hard and produced an 80 second 400 metres / HR hitting 183 on the home straight as I held off some of my pals for the final dash. What was good about this, was I was able to dig in and work harder despite my legs being so "unfresh" from all the day's training" - the second 1600 came after that effort and mainly involved complaining!

'Ello, feeling a bit charged, had another 10+ miles this evening in the form of track work and recovery runs. All sorts of interval naughtiness, can't say I was at my freshest. 20.7 for the day. This week's training loaded heavy in the early part of the week, so it won't be crazy mileage by Sunday
