Sounds like a great trip Lorenzo. Well done to younger Lorenzito. I'm sure the fluid motivation tactic is in P&D somewhere! Hope the physio can sort you out and get you back on track for Abingdon.
Excellent training Stevie - it's coming together nicely - the 10m tempo must have been a good confidence builder.
Good work on the weight loss nicko - you're building the mileage nicely.
Nice progression on the ten miler Gul.
You can still get a GFA place at the Yorkshire Marathon OO.
6 recovery miles this evening. Legs feeling pretty good after yesterday's 24 miler which is a relief.
Nice 10K Jools.
You are making nice strides.
(super) LR. You’re killing it all around. And yes, I do indeed get anxious for
my quality stuff during the week.
Leslie, you are
getting some good consistent work in (and your seem to be making gains too).
Gul, I’d say you’ve
shaken some rust off (especially on the last progressive).
tempo run there. Happy Bday!
for your boy!
And Nicko, sweet weight loss. That's impressive.
So I think I’ve dodged a bullet with my right hip. Managed a subLT run and a
cautious 15M Longish Run last week (48 M over 4 days). Took the extra 3 days
for rest. This week started well with a decent SubLT run. Right hip has
progressively improved. I’m still =(distantly) worried it might go boom, but less so now.
Able to run hard without regressing. Fingers crossed. Not long now.

Lot's of swimming going on - almost beginning to see the attraction, particularly the open water swimming.
Sounds like a good LSR you've got planned in Paris nicko - presumably something other than running is taking there!
Really bad news on the calf G-D. Have you seen a physio and are you doing the calf raises? At least you have the swimming to keep the aerobic fitness up.
Hope you enjoyed the hills in the lakes OO.
Not too many hills on one of my favourite runs from home, running on country roads along the Chiltern escarpment, continuing through Great Hampden woods and then on to Whiteleaf Hill before turning around and retracing steps. Nice views of the sun setting in the Aylesbury Vale on the way back as I finished just before it started to get dark. A steady 11 miles at 7:37 pace.
That's a quick final 6 in that 12 miler Gul. Are you sure you don't feel the need for a target race? There must be some local Half Marathons coming up in the next few months?
Paces looking on the fartlek session Stevie. Maidenhead HM for me on 1 September - will be a MP run.
That's still a pretty good time at the park run DT. Enjoy the holiday.
These mid-week 15 milers come round far too quickly. No need for the wine inducement tonight but I set off without any real enthusiasm and just wanted to get the run done. Legs came alive towards the end, so last 4 miles at 6:49 pace and 7:26 overall. More than 2 minutes faster than last week on the same course so I can't be too wine dependent!
