SC I do MLR on Wednesday and Saturday with my long run on Sunday, the reason for the MLR on Saturday and the Long run on Sunday I belive the Long run should be done on legs that are not tired but have a few miles in them.Monday is a swim and easy run as is Friday so on a Tuesday I do some speed work doing another MLR on this day would take to long due to work but 7 in the morning and 7 on a night time works for me. With my run tomorrow I will hit 83 miles for the week this has worked for me in the past.
Nice running Spark.
Just over 5.5 miles recovery run tonight for me 10+ my hill tomorrow.

NP, thanks for the feedback, I normally have a rest day on Saturday before my Long run on Sunday but I can see the sense with your strategy, impressive weekly mileage, double what I'm currently doing.
AGF, the legs feel good after the massage and they feel fine after the gentle plod around the town
Jason, awesome running, I doubt I could hit those paces during a mile time trial

NN - Nice run
Stewart - Well done
Jason - Impressive pace, as always!
NP - Fantastic mileage for the week
Spark - Good running with the dog, I'm not surprised it was knackered after that!
Tek & AGF - Good running guys
Upper body weights for me this afternoon. I regret being lazy and not going to the gym straight after work this morning, as it was loaded. First slight disappointment of the year, after a week back training and eating better, my weight seems to have went up slightly Albeit, I didn't weigh myself at the same time as last week. So it might just be a time of the day issue, I'll be more concerned if the same happens next week.
Parkrun tomorrow, not sure if I'll race it as part of a 7.5 mile total or cycle up and do a couple of miles before and take it easy. If I take it easy I'll do a tempo run on Sunday.
Decided to do the 7.5 with fast(ish) parkrun. Pretty pleased to run 21.06, only 22 seconds from my pb despite overdoing the festivities. Think I'll alternate between that session, and using parkrun as a recovery run each week for the next month or 2. I'd be better doing a recovery run in my own time, but I want my 50 T-shirt ASAP
Gym in an hour or 2 to look forward to.
Well done on the parkrun Stuart, close to the PB!
Enjoy the recovery day jason, your legs will be pleased!
NP hope you had a good night out and that the hill run goes well. Thick fog here is the lowlands but stunning up with me.
Nice 11 miles NN, great splits.
Good weekly mileage Stewart.
Teknik hope the massage helps settle the knee.
Spark not surprised the pooch was tired at that pace!
Hope you had a good night out AGF.
20 miles for me this morning, first of the campaign! A very icy start and even my ponytail was white with frost by the end but had a great run, nice and easy and had company so just chatted for 2hr 48m av pace 8:26mm.
Spark - speedy dog run
AGF - thanks, building slowly
NP hope you had fun on your hilly 10m, and enjoy Les Mis!
jason great splits yesterday, and happy bimbling today
Stewart well done on the week's total.
NN nice 11 miler - good progressive splits
Stuart nice parkie, and enjoy the gym sesh.
Fiona well done on bagging the 20 miler - nice pace
11.7m this morning - 5 on the flat on my own at 70%, then a hilly 6.7m with the club. Club race tomorrow as long as it's not too icy...
Fiona- Nice 20! Got my first 2mrw
SM6- well done on the Parkrun
Well our trial Parkrun was AWESOME! I was one of 20 runners on a stunning course which followed a grit path around a lake in a country park- not a PB course, but not suicidal either. Lots of really positive feedback. Best of all, the finish line was right next to the cafe which did great coffee and cakes- although I managed to avoid the cake 4m afterwards on the way home. Another easy run planned for later
SM6 Well done on the park run and speed.
Fiona great running saw the splits very nice and first 20 of the campaign mine tomorrow.
Teknik nice running watch out for the snow tomorrow.
Jason sounds like a great course, good man for staying of the cake, our house is still coming down with stuff thats bad for you from Christmas the OH all ways buys way to much lol enjoy your run later.
MG1 Well done on the 19 miles sounds like you had it bad weather wise, just cold and damp here at the moment.
Well ran my hill and then added 2 more miles on to make it up to just over 10 miles, just hope we can get in and out of Belfast without hitting any trouble later
Brilliant long runs Fiona and MG1,
MG1 I shall do a few 4 x 20s a 21 and 1x 23 hopefully
5 recovery for me today off to work again now..
Nice (icy) runs NN Fiona_C MG1 and TeknikNo snow here but quite windy (20 gusting 30kts)
14 miles (into the wind half way) after my dip this morningXC (maybe ) tomorrow
Well done on everyone's training.
MG1- 22 about right, although my Pand D does have one 24 in
OH- good running in tough conditions
NP- Know what youn mean about the Xmas excess- we always buy enough different cheeses to feed a small village!! Resisting temptation here though- and the left over sweets!
6.5m this evening in the bitterly cold gale force wind, 14.92m for the day
JSN Well done to you too - I think lesser folk might have given 2nd run a miss!
A great mix of runs today, short & fast and LSRs. Everyone putting the miles in, nice.
Planning anything up to 24 here, will just see how it goes and will keep the schedule flexible.
Great willpower jason, I just have chocolate to eat but no change there!
Gosh, take care tonight NP.
Jason - glad the Parkrun trial went welland nice total in a gale force yesterday
MG well done on yesterday's 19 miler. Last time I did 7 x 20+ milers, including a 21 and a 22 (all but one were slow, MP +10% to +15%)
NP well done on the hilly 10. How was Les Mis?
NN nice recovery. Hope the long run goes ok today
OH well done on the windy 14m + swim
Fiona - ouch, 24 would hurt, methinks (particularly at your pace)
Hope everyone is ok
No ice or frost here so after a one mile warm-up I chased my clubmates around a 7.5m on-road course. Averaged 7.31mm and the HR "settled" at around 85%max, so happy with that.
