On7 - I agree with the c2/turbo/wattbike/XT hard, pootling about on a bike is a waste of time. However if folks arnt fit eniugh to run most days then it should be the hard running that gets dropped not the easy. Build frequency, distance and then intensity as you are able to run more often.

Not much time nowadays ive lost everg other sunday and have minimal time on two weekdays due to building those days around travelling to Southampton and bacm for the youngests cricket (have to say that im most impressed with professionalism of county youth cricket training and all the associated strength and conditioning/sprinting). My endurance sports days seem to be numbered or I need to be a bit more clever with the time I do have available nowadays. Might have to have a general swim/bike and run routine and then do a short 4 or 6 week target block for any events or fixture.

Cd - no nadbuster here, so im suprised the forecast is so bad. In fact the ne t fixture I have planned at the mo is vlm so the weather god might give you all a clear run of weather up until that fixture.

I guess we have to wait for ES to fly home for the rest !

ES - are teh paces a result of loking back after the race via the gadget or are you actually worrying about all those paces along the way ?

Nice to see the young Coro's have inherited the genes !

Bainsy - dont hurt yourself

CW - what did you expect, it was a double and 5 days too early.

ticking over, commute running has to go down to twice a week instead of the recent three times until the nippers full winter training schedule (which he is now on) finishes in April, will lose every other Sunday after Christmas too, this side of Christmas I have enough time for a shortish run.

ES - surprisingly chipper, im surprised at your surprisingly ! The best you can be on any given day is the target. Pushing yourself until you find your on the day limits is very comendable, many dont. The cramps are a result of the effort you put in. With more winter miles you will be well placed to beat your vlm time from this year.

Wardi - would be good if it stays mild to allow more cycling yet. Doubles have been on the menu already, its been the best way to get some miles in recently, but I'm going to have to cut that back a bit now though.

RS - no 2:4X attempt, just a bit more running than is usual at this time of year, no chance of racing to put it to the test though, Sundays are full up for next few months. Enjoy Lordshill its usually a speedy one.

CW - step away from the trainers, all of that running marathons on the Downs and hop scotch needs recovering from fully.

10M more today (in the rain too), that closes off October with 204M which is mahoosive Autumn mileage for me. Bike day tomorrow (havnt been on it for a week).

Posted: 30/10/2015 at 19:46 no Asics threads for the Spring.

So is this new thread a RW initiated thread (to replace the Asics ?) or is it an Irunsuccess initiated thread ? or is this free advice (in the form of mentoring) as against (paid for) coaching ?.........................none meant, just interested.

ES - sounds good, keep that mind strong and your legs will follow it.

Im on 194m for the month with a run either tomorrow or Saturday to come, 200m a month is jan to march mileage, although its a bit low on bike and swim. The full cricket winter training programme starts next week, so well see how much me time ill have from then onwards.

S4C is a welsh channel

ES - control the controllables and execute the race as best you can on the day, like you did at VLM. The overall race time is a result of that process. As long as you can look yourself in the mirror afterwards knowing that you did your best.

I find it bizarre that so may folks get so time focussed and thats not aimed at anyone just a generalisation. A target time will get you out the door on early mornings though.
