  • Good luck to everyone at Wokingham...Looks like it'll be PB's for a load of you!! AWC - Sorry to hear your news. Muddy - Continue to recover well. 5 miles yesterday, but stuck to the bike today (22.5 miles in 90 minutes), may stick to the bike th…
  • Big G - I agree with Shades/Ian, see how you feel, nothing wrong with taking a gamble and blowing up later in the race....we have all been there. I do think it's those gambles that can pay big dividends PB wise. I remember when I ran my then HM PB o…
  • This thread is moving fast!! If I miss anyone I'm sorry!! Joe / TR / HPR / HA / Spoons - Great long runs. Macca - Nice 5k on tired legs, awesome stuff. SQ - Nice LT XC run. 16 miles for me on Saturday which felt good, then Sunday was 90 minutes …
  • Ian - Superb HM PB, the wind and hill would have had an effect at the end, and 50 seconds is a big PB at that pace! Cal - Again, another PB! Superb running, and sounds extremely well paced. 16 miles for me on Saturday which felt good, then Sunday …
  • Shades - My thoughts exactly, if I wanted to do a tri I'd have to get some swimming lessons to improve technique and know that would harm my run training. Cal - Nice 11 miles. 10 miles for me this morning, felt good.
  • Spoons - Monster session! Macca - You'll take a big chunk out of your 1:24 PB, you ran 1:25ish (I think) in training!! Joe - Nice session! Ramjet / TR / FBT - Nice MLR's. Chicksta - Nice VO2 session. sounds well paced. 10 miles for me this morn…
  • SQ - I plan to maintain around 45 miles a week (5 days a week) for now, until March when P&L starts, then I'll peak around 55 miles but with a lot more faster miles (LT/VO2 etc). AWC - I did the Shakespeare half back in 2015, which was a nice r…
  • Shades - Yes, too many races not enough time! Usually run/bike/run. Wedding is October 2020. Cal - Not surprised the race took it out of you after a big PB! OTB - I found the weekend back to back runs helped me massively. Just make sure you are r…
  • Shades - The list is quite long.....but I've promised not to do anything "long" this year. Will race a marathon in 2020 and perhaps do an ultra a month or so before the wedding, so that I don't need to train in the month of the wedding (well that's …
  • Spoons - Great LR and weekly mileage. TR - Nice HM, sounds like you are in a good place for sub 3. Joe/Jools - Nice XC/parkrun combos. Macca - Nice MP run. 18 miles on Saturday morning, then 22 miles (90 mins) on the bike in the afternoon. 6…
  • Shades - Well done at Humdinger, that's a hilly course! Big G - Superb result considering the injury! Cal - Superb PB, all that training has paid off! Shades - That looks like an interesting ultra! I'll add that to my list! 18 miles on Saturday …
  • Joe - Nice session there and big week so far! Macca - Nice VO2 max session. Jools & SQ - Nice MLRs. 5 mile recovery yesterday and a 10 miler today. Nice to see HR lower than it has been for ages during my runs, unless it changes next week, I'…
  • Rob - I saw the WW100 race, the 50 miler looks scary enough, the 100 is just evil!! Ian - Nicely done to get the run in after the beers! You seem to have recovered well from the marathon and got on the MT podium! Cal - If you are not PB hunting th…
  • TR - Nice mileage. Jools - Nice 2nd place! My swimming I'd describe as splashing around Might be tempted by a duathlon one day, but I'd need swimming lessons to get the technique right to even think about a triathlon. Millsy - Superb running at …
  • Ian - Doubles sounds like the perfect way for you to up the miles to mid 50s. Yeah feeling fitter now, think just getting back to 30-50 mile weeks with easy miles has helped lots. Big G - Glad it's nothing too serious and won't stop you running. S…
  • Nice 10k TR and congrats on the PB SQ. Well done on the 18 with 10 Ramjet! 16 cold miles for me on Saturday morning, but felt really tough for the first 4 miles! Then in the afternoon I did 90 minutes on the bike (24 miles), so 40 combined…
  • Ian - What sort of mileage are you hoping to hit? 16 cold miles for me on Saturday morning, but felt really tough for the first 4 miles! Then in the afternoon I did 90 minutes on the bike (24 miles), so 40 combined miles for the day. 5 miles on Su…
  • Some awesome January totals!!! 197 miles for me, which is a couple more than I ran between the whole of June and October last year!! Ramjet - Nice MLR in the snow! Muddy - Take it easy, hope you recovery quickly.
  • Shades - Rest day today for me, but no snow or ice here, just cold! Hoping for the same again tomorrow. Rob / Ian - Yeah, not the best temps to run in, but I've plenty of cold weather gear to wrap up warm!
  • Reg / FBT - Sessions done though, so one to tick off and move on. Jools / SQ / TR - Nice MLRs. 4:30am start in -5c temps for a 10 miler at 8:30s, felt comfortable and finishes off Jan just short of 200 miles for the month, another month of buildin…
  • Ian - Hope the achilles is OK. Shades / Big G / Steven - Hope your injuries/illness heal soon. 4:30am start for a 10 miler today, was -5c, so very cold. However run was good, averaging 8:30s.
  • MF - Sorry to hear the PF is still an issue. Not so slipping around here, so easy 5 miles this morning.
  • Chicksta - I think I'm back, no issues injury wise. Just trying to get back to where I was fitness wise. Macca - Nice late night 22m! AWC - Nice LT run. Early morning start for a cold but enjoyable 10 miles.
  • Rob - the bike is low impact, so helps me get in a extra hour or so of exercise a week. However if I find I need to drop it in order to focus just on running I will. It's been good for building up leg strength. Plus lots of ultra runners use cycling…
  • NE - Superb run off so little training! SQ - Nice marathon pace! Some great long runs too! 12 miles for me on Saturday, then Sunday was 90 mins (21 miles) on the bike followed by a 4 mile run, legs felt good, so chucked in one at 10k pace (6:04 t…
  • Ian - Super running and a big PB, congrats to your wife too, off 2 runs a week that is a great time. So close to GFA now, I think you'll nail that in Manchester. Shades - Yes and no. I have a time in mind, but will see how training goes. Would like…
  • Joe - Interesting about your brick run! I always find it tough to slow down on my Sunday runs after my session on the turbo! I always assumed my legs would be tired from the bike, but clearly not!
  • Big G - Congrats on the exchange of contracts, exciting times!! Ian - Good luck this weekend. Shades - Yes, I know my HR wasn't at 180+ as I was just running easy and it felt easy too, at a guess I was around 140ish at that time. I want to have se…
  • 5 miles yesterday and 8 today, both icy, but took it very easy. HRM went mad today, reckoned I hit 186 bpm at one point!!
  • TR - Nice 16 miler. HPR - Nice long run and parkrun! AWC - Nice LT run! The first one back is always tough! Macca - Superb late night running! NE - Good to see you back, sorry to hear of your issues, but sounds like you are building back nicely.…
