Morning! Filthy weather out there this morning - can't wait for my run home today! Still, it's only 3 miles so won't be too bad. Week 2 now of 12 week training plan for my September HM.

Hello Spenno and Crispy - hope you're ok.

Harmander you're a legend!

So wet at the Olympic Park yesterday I swear I almost came back with webbed feet. Managed to finish the 10k in 55:03 so happy with that. Not happy that there were some amongs the "Elite 10k" who were finishing the first 5k lap in 44 minutes? Not quite sure for the rationale behind that one but was not the only one standing in the rain waiting for the 11.00 start for the "mass 10k"

Hope everyone's had good weekends. The schedule starts today for the 12 weeks leading up to the HM on 4 September. I like today's schedule - REST!

Welcome back KieranG you'll soon be back where you left off in times of stamina etc. Well done for your marathon entry!

Have decided against the Vitality next year - the route was changed a couple of years ago which meant that it no longer runs along the Embankment nor does it go through Leadenhall market - both of which were great parts of the course. It was congested this year and if they increase the numbers next year it will be even worse unless you get in the front pens. Unfortunately my time doesn't put me there so probably time to call it a day. Have entered a local 10k for ??16 which is what I would call reasonable. The Marathon is certainly good value at ??39.

Managed to dodge the thunderstorms yesterday - they were over by the time I finished school. Looks like there are more today but I'm not running home tonight!

My next 10k is this Sunday at the Olympic Park - something arranged by the Dame Kelly Holmes Foundation - anyone there?

Have a good day

Well done Harmander. Not been around much as it's been half term!

Did Vitality 10k (formerly BUPA 10k) on Bank Holiday Monday and got round in 56:55 so quite happy with that. I feel I could have been a little faster but it was very congested this time and difficult to make your way through. They've put the price up to ??30 next year so I may drop it from my list of races. Especially since the word is that they want to make it even larger and increase it from this year's 12,000 to 20,000 next year.

Running home tonight and trying to avoid the threatened thunderstorms - hope you all have good days.

Wow some good running there!

DB7X I'd love to be able to complete a marathon in 4.13 - my best ever time is 5.19 so I can only dream!

Harmander that's nuts! Good luck with Luxembourg

I'm not a cricket fan but glad that you took some time out to rest TopSec!

Great news that you had no issues with your knee KieranG - hope the training plan and diet go well. I'm constantly on SW!

Parkrun for me on Saturday and then in the afternoon I went on a walk with my husband to investigate a new local wetlands that I'm now going to incorporate into a run home. It'll add on an extra mile and is all flat - yeh! Yesterday I went out for a plod - just over 6 miles but really struggled - I get hayfever induced asthma which means that I feel really sluggish - had to walk part of a hill but heyho, got round! My next race is on Bank Holiday Monday when I do the BUPA 10k. A lovely day out there today.

Wow TopSec that really is some schedule you have going on there. I don't do half of what you do and my old body complains occasionally. My week is 2 x runs home (between 2.75 and 3.5 miles) 2 x walk to work 1.3 miles; 1 parkrun (3.1 miles) and a run on Sunday which currently is increasing from 4 miles to a 10k in 2 weeks time. This still allows me 3 rest days. Maybe stepping back from something is what you need to do. After all, we want you fit and raring to go at the start of VLM 2017

Hope everyone is well? Sitting here at my desk waiting for the rain to start

Lovely weekend - hope everyone's well. Parkrun for me on Saturday and just over 4.5 miles yesterday.

Morning all! Not quite so lovely out there this morning but it's going to get better apparently

Tried a new route home last night which was slightly longer than I'd expected and a little hillier too! Normally average around 2.27 miles if I'm just going for a jog building up to 5 miles if I'm training - last night it worked out to 3.25. Warm too so next time I'll have to take some water with me.

Any plans for the weekend? Parkrun for me and a planned 4 - 4.5 on Sunday.

Thanks Kieran - have got a bike but I'm not very good at riding it - will maybe have a go at riding to parkrun! Like the image of a leisurely ride with baguettes though.

Lol at the parathaas Harmander - unfortunate!
