  • SQ: MLR after those reps certainly is solid! I'd say I'll go 90% on Saturday. I know I can recover pretty quickly from the distance, and this race and Shakespeare are B races before the big on on the 8th June which is the South Downs Way 100 which i…
  • Hamo: thats a fantastic PB off the back of a 20 miler - really impressive. Target for Shakespeare is around 3 hours give or take George: hate the dogs being out - really upsets your rythym and you always get a rubbish run every now and again M…
  • Great race Jools. That’s a hell of a lot of climbing looking at Strava!
  • NE: that’s very consistent pacing. Hard to do! Jools: keep your head up man. You’ve got some serious training in your legs which will come through soon enough! Final MP run for me today. Had to bring it forward as I forgot The SPO’s special day is…
  • Macca: nice reps.Always feels weird when you've got time to fill as the runs are getting shorter. SQ: a few easier days leave me feeling a bit leggy but normally its just a feeling rather than the reality! Joe: great session on heavy legs 10 mile…
  • HPR: I’m a tight accountant but as I was up in London for the day I thought I’d treat myself as a one off
  • NE: the Salomon S/Lab technical t-shirts are amazing quality in terms of keeping you cool and dry. They are very expensive though and designed for trail but they work fine on the road!
  • HA: I'm a fan of short shorts as well HA. Think mine might be 3" - was actually just on eBay buying some new ones today Spoons: glad the ITB is behaving SQ: being on the South Coast I'm the one to benefit the most from this. My family in Northern …
  • Thanks Macca I've updated mine Manchester 7/4 HPR 18wk 70-85mpw A: Sub 3 B:3:05 George 18wk 55-70mpw 3:10 Macca 18wk P&D 70-85 2:5x Brighton 14/4 Jooligan 15weeks P&D based 55-70mpw 2:59 FBT sub 3:10 TR 2:5x Shake…
  • Thanks Spoons I'll make sure I've got some change with me
  • Spoons: hopefully just a niggle. Can you just rock up to the track and do they charge you for using it?
  • Hamo: yeah can't wait! Gonna have a blast round Ecos parkrun where I set my PB last year and hopefully get a new one. Get back 2-3 times each year. Kids love it there - Portmagic for Barry's and ice cream and the Wine Bar for a good feed  Gonna…
  • Jools: you've been through a lot recently with the crash etc so your body is probably looking for a bit of a decent taper now. Hope you get your energy back soon Joe: great 24 mile long run at that pace and 96 miles is impressive NE: decent long r…
  • Well done Macca - great PB. I knew sub-18 was on the cards soon Went out for a 26 miler and ended up doing 30mi in just under 4.5hrs / 8:57/mi pace. Was feeling really good so just cracked on.  Definitely a good sign after 16mi and 15mi on Thur/Fr…
  • SQ: Good luck for the FoD at the weekend. Interesting report on the Vapourfly's - there certainly a very strong correlation between the shoes and improved performance, although if my dietary change has taught me anything from my research it is that …
  • NE: thats great imrpovement on LT pace and shows real progression SQ: sounds like a nice run - lovely this time of year with the light, and a bit more heat. Makes running so pleasurable. Fingers crossed on the back Run commute home (7.5mi) and bac…
  • SQ: glad the back is improving and no negative reactions FBT: sorry the foot is still giving you problems HA: a 32min 10km wow!! That's amazing breaking a 24yo PB. Insane really. That dual carriageway back to the stadium is awful - the stadium jus…
  • Great result at Weymouth 1:27:58 I think official time. So in spite of the gale force winds I ran almost a 3 minute PB.  Delighted
  • TR/Jools: thanks guys - I’ve banished all negative thoughts and am ready to go! I don’t tend to run many halves so might have better luck if I did more!!
  • FBT: ha yeah resistance training! Seeing how I feel/how windy it is but it'll be at least a 13mi MP effort if nothing else with a few miles WU/CD so all is not lost I just seem to have ridiculous bad luck with HMs: 2016: Surrey HM is my PB of 1:3…
  • Not feeling great at the minute - been on a few recovery runs and did [email protected] yesterday (albeit in a storm with 50mph winds) but just feel really sluggish and weak. Not great timing with Weymouth on Sunday! Plus the weather is awful - forecast is f…
  • Macca: well done on the parkrun - the kind of form you are in it will be just a matter of time before going 17:xx Steve: I prefer the split ones as I find the 6/7mi ones particularly hard but then they are probably better mental training. Anyway gl…
  • FBT: great idea! I might join you in a pair of HA's leopard print pants Hamo: the 7mi LT is the hardest run of the plan for me and when the weather is against you its so tough mentally so you did well to just get it done and still in a really stron…
  • SQ: I struggle with a tight right hammy as well which is linked to my glute. The ball rolling things works really well and also the yoga pigeon stretch is also helpful.
  • TR: hockey balls and cricket balls sounds painful. I stick to the tennis ball or spikey massage ball
  • Blimey lots to catch up on! Joe: good job on the RD. Takes balls to do that, although I'm sure you're a natural! Macca: beast of a week to follow up Wokingham Half. Your powers of recovery are fantastic - PS I see you are in for the WW100. Tempted…
  • NE: same as the others have said there's a lot of variables going into a race like that. Whatever the reality it will have stimulated some good training adaptations. HA: thats a lot of 1km reps! Great session George: great 10km pace and well done …
  • TR - the mother in law lives in Portland so it’s one of the few races I gain brownie points for suggesting we go to
  • TR: Weymouth is a really scenic course mainly along the seaside and through town a bit. Wee bit lumpy in places so no a very fast course and the wind can have a massive impact on times if its breezy. SQ: thats some good mileage and sensible to take…
  • Jools: I had a pair of Tempo 9s and they're definitely not stability shoes even though these say they are on them. The boost by the arch is just a little harder than normal but there's no medial post or anything like traditional stability shoes. I f…
