Good luck Badbark. May you find the mental strength when you need it most.
Good long run Stevie.
Not surprised you're feeling ropey Gerard - well done on the podium place.
Speedy reps Gul. What's the next race?
Good luck with the track races OO.
Well done on getting the 15 miles completed G-D.
!0K tempo session on the track tonight, with 3K w/u and 3K w/d. Really struggled to get the pace and HR up for the first 2K (so HR of 155 compared to expected 170 and pace of 4:07 m/km) but managed to push it up from 2K - so HR of 165 and pace of 4:01 m/km for the next 8K - to give 40:26 for the 10K. It's possible the 4kg I've put on since Brighton is having a detrimental effect on the speed at the moment!
Brilliant stuff Badbark - and a national medal - look forward to the full report.
Well done on the track medals OO - super quick times!
Race to the King sounds like a long hard slog Lorenzo - well done on toughing it out.
Excellent running in the hot conditions DT - you must be due a cool one soon!
Will be interesting to see how you get on with the coaching Stevie ...
Good to get those miles in early Birch.
That could be tough conditions for the 10 mile race Leslie - what time of day is it?
Coming along nicely Jools.
That's a good long run Gerard and a fast 5k on Saturday. Enjoy the swim.
No beach here in Buckinghamshire so I'll have just have make do with a beer after the early evening long run. Another 16 miles, with temperatures at 23deg C but I think I'm beginning to get used to the heat. Nice and steady at an average 7:38 pace, giving me 65 miles for the week.
Just need to get my mind in shape for the hilly 10K on Tuesday evening. Temperatures are looking a little on the hot side so it should be fun!
Badbark, that is an amazing achievement, the distance and the national medal. I bed you wore it to bed!!
Lorenzo, great effort on your very long run also.
Nice session, Gul.
Nice long running also, Gerard.
Same to you, SBD and good luck Tuesday.
Well done on your 10, Birch.
Feeling a bit tired today. Yesterday took quite a bit out of me. I am hoping for a slight rb boost from it as I am just outside the top 1000 in the rankings for my age group and one more small jump in handicap should nudge me in there. This week could be very challenging running wise with the heat and various other social engagements as well as the footy notching up a touch now. Think I am going to get what easy miles in I can, when I can without stressing too much.
Next race up for me is the Droitwich 10k, however it clashes with a world cup semi final so may bin that off. After that it is the Magor 10k
