  • Huge congrats to SBD! I enjoyed following your splits but you did make me nervous at the end. Phew! A fantastic performance and report. Sorry it wasn’t perfect for you Lorenzo, you did well and most importantly you enjoyed the experience. …

  • Super report Gul! Huge congratulations! Happily my back feels fine after yesterday's 10k. I rested today but will run tomorrow, so fingers crossed. The Boston Marathon is soon  to start on the US NBC Sports Network. I'm going to enjoy watching it …

  • My doctor told me on Wednesday that I shouldn’t run at all. Did I listen? Did I fxxx! I ran my local Parkrun yesterday in 22:30 then a 10k race this morning and 8 miles in total. The 10k was a personal worst of about 48:40. That’s a horrible 12 m…

  • All the best Gul. You've done the hard part already with all the training. Now you just have to cap it all off, then bask in the glory!

  • Well done Stevie and Nicko! Great performances from you both. I look forward to the race reports.

  • All the very best Stevie and Nick! Run like the wind and embrace the pain! I’m happy to report I’ve managed a few runs over the last fortnight. I went 31 days without any running but have completed two slow Parkruns and a few other short …

  • Ian – Enjoy the holiday! Gul – Impressive weekly mileage OO – I’m glad your daughter is ok. Horrible stuff. Sorry your LSR didn’t go to plan.  That’s a decent Parkrun with a cold. GD – Great internal session and 8:10 pace for a LSR is…

  • I was about to paste in a post I'd began earlier, but after refreshing read about OO's daughter. OO, that's awful and I really feel for you and your family. I hope she is ok and recovers quickly.

  • PhilipMJones said: Good to have a diagnosis now badbark. I can't see if you were on the thread when I joined towards the start of 2011 or if you joined soon after but I see an old post in 2011 when you were hoping to go sub 3:10 at Belfast and …

  • Speedy – Glad to read you are recovering from lurgy with a normal HR. Wise taking a few days off. Poacher – Lovely sounding cross training SBD – Nice resting HR, I’m around the same. That’s a very good 15 miles including an impressive f…

  • Well it’s finally happened after 10 years of running. I’m injured and can’t run. I was at the Doc yesterday and diagnosed with a muscle strain\tear in my upper glutes. I haven’t been able to walk without pain since Friday and it’s like being stab…

  • I ran my 80th marathon/ultra today. Having run 82 miles over the previous 6 days I wasn’t going into the event fresh. The plan was 7:15 pace to about 20 miles then coast at around 7:40 pace for the final 10k and a comfortable sub 3:15. As I’…

  • Burgundymike – I turn 50 this year too and have improved every year since I started running 10 years ago. In 2009 I ran the Dublin marathon in 3:48 and it was 2 years and my 5th marathon before I went sub 3:15. It was my 9th marathon before I wen…

  • GD – Well done on bagging your first 20 miler in windy conditions. That’s a good pace too. Leslie – Running after nights sounds tough going. I hope you lower leg pain clears SBD – That’s a brilliant HM in testing conditions. Even more i…

  • DT – I’m mighty impressed with your 10 mile run. Do you have any marathons planned soon? With that sort of run in training you couldn’t be far off 2:50 shape. Gul – I think optical HRMs are extremely roping. They seem to work for some but no…

  • I ran 6 easy miles this morning and 8.5 tonight including a 10k hilly trail race. My legs were sore after squats and deadlifts yesterday and the race was pitch black. I nearly fell have a dozen times having stupidly worn normal trainers. Despite all…

  • CC2 - Speedy Goth said: Badbark, I was hoping to get some training tips from you so that's not what I wanted to read LOL. I haven't entered yet as I need to do a little more research on where to stay and how to get there, but it is a road 100k…

  • CC2 - Speedy Goth said: Badbark, what pace do you plan on running the 100k? Do you run faster for 50k in training or try to keep it at 100k race pace? I'm eying one up myself for October (if I can get the time off work).  My A goal i…

  • DT – A great tempo session. Enjoy the 17  Birch – Brilliant mileage! That’s 2 ½ times around Earth! OO – Good weekly mileage and I hope the Parkrun goes well GD – Great 17 miles done. Every run I do is a bit of a grind I ran 50…

  • I've just added up my total mileage since I started recording it in August 2009. I've run over 26k miles so more than the circumference of the Earth! (25k mi)

  • Sorry to read both OO and DT didn’t have your best days. They were still good runs considering the weather. I ran 10 miles yesterday including a moderate effort of 19:35 at my local Parkrun. I wanted to tire my legs a bit before my 79th mara…

  • Happy birthday DT – and that’s a nippy session. You’re looking good for a fast HM Speedy – I think it’s a bit of myth that ultra-running is a detriment to speed. I find I’m slower for a few weeks after a race but back to normal after a month…

  • After a few days rest, I’ve started training again towards the British 100k Championships at the end of March. The rest did what I hoped and my mojo has returned. I’ve now 10 weeks to get in good ultra-shape. 100k is a distance I haven’t had m…

  • GD - On your behalf, my new lower league team to support are Woking DT – That’s a very impressive session. I don’t think I could manage those mile paces outside of a race.  Gul – Sorry to read about your dizzy spells. A Docs visit would be …

  • OO – Happy Birthday! After running two Parkrun’s on New Year’s Day I’m finally taking a break. I’m not going to run until Monday, so it will be 5 days. I did walk a few miles yesterday and a weight session this morning. I’ve also voluntee…

  • OO – Great yearly total. Get well soon.  Poacher – Sorry to read about your lurgy. Still a very impressive marathon total. SBD – Excellent 20 miles banked to get you close to the 2600. Enjoy the beer.  Gul – Well done on the 3k+ yea…
  • Gul – Great b2b 12 milers and a 13. Nearly there now! Speedy – Good 12 miles completed. It’s a pity the 100k classes with your VLM schedule  DT – Glad to read you are feeling better. I hope your hit your Parkrun target SBD – Nice 12…
  • OO – Excellent Parkrun time! Hi Speedy, great to hear from you again! Congrats on the Ultra course record. Here’s an Ultra worth considering - https://www.entrycentral.com/Self-transcendence-100km-50km It’s the British 100k Championship and I…
  • Well done on marathon 90 Poacher! It’s great to read you’ve another planned already. I’m finding myself wanting to run them more often, now that I’m getting closer too.  I ran my 77th on Friday in 3:08:32, which was good enough for the win i…
