Roy, nice going. I've never had a run ave 101! Incredible!!

Futon, well run race!

Tek, hard to say what's going on there. But the 5K results are great! Maybe you are just a victim of heat/humidity on certain days? Or maybe a couple of those runs found you in need of recovery so HR was a bit higher? Puzzling!

Cybistrider, looking good there. You've got loads to time to dial it all in.

Spen, heat/humidity mucking up your numbers too?

Haven't heard from Andi in quite some time now. Same with Brian.

Got some good runs in over the weekend and yesterday. HR very low these days and feeling fit. Just trying to juggle recovery as I definitely walk a fine line lately.

Gul, forgot, you kind of are our vampire runner (Gul/Drac o clock). Hills are certainly a relative thing based on where you live. Last fall I ran a course that was flat for my normal digs. A few guys local to there were complaining bitterly about the hills while I was luxuriating. I like PB attempts though so would be shooting for more flat. Figure I have a few more years to try and peak...after that maybe I'll go more scenic/bucket list.

BI, that sounds nasty. Glad you are starting to feel better.

KR, hope the backside is back to good today.

Lots and lots of sun here and I am in July tan condition already. Heading out now for a sunny easy run.

Leslie, glad the test run went well today.

GM, Thanks for the yoga details. I like the sound of it. BTW, the only race I've penciled in is a fall (autumn!) marathon.

Gul, nice stride incorporation into a (nearly) MLR.

PMJ, hope you found your mojo today.

BI, good to hear you are feeling healed. Great news and just in time.

KR, very speedy run there. Yes, night time marathon run would be awesome MsE.

BTW MsE, sorry to hear about your Achilles. But I bet the weeks off will do wonders for you in general (and heal the Achilles). A proper rejuvenation after the marathon. But a bummer to miss that trail race.

Poacher, super bummer. We need to find the person setting all those rakes up around you. You're due a really good stretch of injury free running!

13 w/10 at subLT for me today. Hot out there. Held up OK but this one was harder than the past few (this after 2 days off) so am ready for my cutback week coming up. Blister area was a bit tender today. Wasn't sure whether the sock was going to be bloody or clean at the end of the run. Happy to report (w/out visuals) that the sock was clean (but affected area a beautiful shade of deep red that you'll just have to imagine)...

Anybody else getting a nice tan these days?

Roy, looking good!

I just got back from a 13 w/10 at subLT. 6:5X ave and HR about 78% ave too on the fast miles. Hot out there and had to work harder on this one than the past few. Ready for a cut back week (Especially considering I took the past 2 days off due to a bad blister...was expecting to be very fresh but not the case).

OK, OK, no more pics!   Will clean up my act. Today will just say it feels much better. Maybe not ready for a run though (but my legs feel really nice after resting yesterday).

GM, sorry to hear of your woes. Hope things change soon and you can get back into the swing to things. Interested to hear how the yoga is impacting you. I've been told I could use strong doses of it (or pilates?). I'm a very inflexible chap apparently.

Jools, good luck on the race. Perhaps you'll be surprised (in a good way)! 

BI, yes, crush it today instead. Like that plan. Good luck getting mentally prepared for that race. When is it again?

Abbers, howdy and congrats on the new job/commute change. Glad to hear you'll be getting so much time back for the more important stuff (like running!).

Badbark, very cool video. Was fun to watch you win! Loved the terrain too. Good luck on the upcoming massive double.

KR, haven't come across an 8 miler, but if I did would love to cover it as quickly as you did. Excellent racing!

MsE, nice control (and sorry for the breakfast pics!). I figured that blister was too good not to share. SJ, yes, I operated last night. My kids were in awe and my wife was totally grossed out! Took the outer layer off and left a pretty raw patch behind (mercifully, won't post the after pick as it's a little more graphic). Feeling better already, but as you all probably know, very tender today. Hoping I can be out again late tomorrow or day after. Killing me to take the day off though as I've been in a great place lately.

DD, bummer! Hope the bug clears soon and that the foot heals too. What a persistent injury!

Hi Cybistrider! Yes, nice pace at 71%. I'm sure you'll see a good return on the HADD investment.

ACP, you mentioned wanting to feel comfortable on easy runs. I think this yells out that the HADD training will really work for you. Typically those in need of squeezing the toothpaste from the bottom are unintentionally guilty of running too fast most days and neglecting that bottom bit. As you progress, the easy runs will start to feel effortless. That's when this training business really gets good in my opinion. Stick with it. And hopefully the nighttime iron intake will help too.

I dissected my blister last night. Kids were in awe, wife was grossed out. Tender foot today so no running. Maybe tomorrow but I suspect might need that day too. I'm usually amazed though at how fast the skin on the foot can heal though.

And forgot to say hi! to Spen! Glad to hear you are on the comeback trail. And I concur the weather can make all the difference.
