  • Nicko, I think you are pretty well placed based on that time in the conditions, though I am not sure how your long runs are tallying? Speedy, I have decided to try and avoid races which involve a hotel stay. There's always issues and idiots and I n…

  • That's what annoys me, it is supposed to be whatever you want it to be, unless you want it to be a race!!

  • isn't 4m/km 6.26 pace? That is the pace need to sub 20/40?
  • well done, Tommy. My recollection is that victoria dock came out top of the recent league table of fastest parkruns.

  • David, well done on the parkrun win. Something i've not managed before either. 2nd is my best. Mace, well done on the early 20. It must feel nice to be done as much of the country is just getting up. Back from Edinburgh now, feeling a little jaded…

  • Not much to report running wise. Long weekend away so back to it today.
  • Morning all! Poacher, well done on ticking another off. Hope the injury isn't too big a problem. Ian, that's a great time. Looks like you got weather lucky. Nicko, that's a great pb and time on such a crappy day. Equally, G-dawg well done on you…

  • Stevie, what time did you put down for pen B? I am assuming sub 2.55 as you will have entered after Abingdon? Even in London sub 3 gets you in pen 1.

  • Sounds solid, Stevie. OO- Mine sits between 59 and 61 generally yet I know people at my fitness or a bit below at mid 60s and then people fitter than me a few below so whilst I panic if it drops below 59 and get excited when it reaches 62, it means…

  • Yes I think it's a bit easier in a race scenario, particular if you are mara preping and not seeing the 20 as the big one (which some do) then tootling around at sub mara pace for just 20 seems much easier. I've also found that with every other of…

  • Nice 15, SBD. Its quite interesting looking how completely incomparable hr data is between runners and how personal it is. G dawg did 7.17 pace over 5 miles at 129bpm. I would say for me to post 5 miles at that hr I would have to run 8.30-9mm depen…

  • Hopefully the meds will get you there, Alehouse. Yes, early morning running doesn't me but sometimes needs must. Andrew, good stuff, I suspect 10k pace (as you perceive) is no longer 10k pace if you finished like that. heavy legged 5 at recovery …
  • I forget that Manchester is so close as London is that little later this year. I had a very heavy legged 5 miler last night. I will be glad to get tonight's 11 done to have a few days off running over the weekend, before moving into a big 5 week ph…

  • Never trust a word on social media, Muddy!! 10 mile tempo today over lunch with 2 wu and 0.5 cd. I was conscious i did a big session sunday so set out tentatively with a 6.42. Aim was to progress it and run second half faster than first. Last time …

  • is that a new thing, Andrew, the 3 miles before work? It's a very easy way to increase mileage just sneaking in easy short ones like that. I did an easy 7 yesterday before work then spin last night I suspect you should see how you feel in the morni…
  • sub 35 race?? I've not done it for a few years as it always clashes with Sneyd 10 miler. I am looking at Derby 10 this year late November so I may go with Telford. Oh dear, Gul. I have recently had quite a few visits from the ginger bread man whils…

  • Nice to dip under 1.18, Muddy. I can imagine Alan Partridge is a love/hate matter. For me it's love. I watched some of uni challenge, like the Manchester team I barely understood the bonus questions they kept getting!!

  • OO- Apologies for the confusion, I sort of had in my head they were one and the same thing. Poacher, good to hear from you. Nice casual mara entry as well!! Nice start to the week, Gul. 7 for me at recovery this morning with spin later tonight.

  • Muddy, he posted 1.17.36 on Strava. I am not certain on his exact age, however the first comment on his strava post for the race was someone wishing him happy 40th birthday Vet. His comment under the race was 'bad day, must be my age catching up wit…

  • David, that is a big session if the pace is right. Remind me what is the target half?  Mcf, well done on a tough morning.  Well done also, Muddy. My mate finished about 25 seconds ahead of you looking on strava.  20 with 12 at mp today. Started w…

  • Nice going, SBD. Equally you are in a very good place.  oo, great running and prize winning. Landmarks half should be quicker, particularly as you wont have run a marathon a week or so earlier.

  • I avoided the worst of the weather today for my session. 20 miles with 5 easy then 15 of 5 at mp, 1 easy, 4 at mp, 1 easy, 3 at mp, 1 easy.  mp miles come out 6.55, 6.52, 6.51, 6.52 and 6 45. then 6.46, 6.50, 6.52 and 6.43. Finally 6.47, 6.50 and 6…
  • Leslie, great effort. Shift those kilos and get into some consistency and that times will fall nicely.  SBD, well done on the age group win.  Nice running everyone else. G- dawg, I'll be 57 when my youngest is 20, you must have started younger th…

  • 5k is an aerobic event, you'll get better at it from training your aerobic system by running more miles if you have the time to.  If you want to improve form and running efficiency have a look at doing drills and strides within some runs. Im not co…
  • Yes, rewards will no doubt follow, Andrew. Alehouse, sorry to hear of your troubles. I recall trying to race a few years back on antibiotics. You very quickly learn quite how harsh they are on the body as with these tabs I was on. I cant believe mi…
  • Yes, no doubt work is contributing somewhere. When I was off Friday-Sunday last week it felt so much better then come Monday afternoon it was solid again. It does however feel a fair bit better now and more like I just need a sports massage to iron…

  • SBD- Nice mileage, bang on 75 mpw! Yes, I can see the funny side now, I just wish the gp had made that clear at the outset!! The amount of people in this country walking around like zombies from these sort of pills must be ridiculous! Stevie, do yo…

  • Gul, that's a great 10k!! Not sure I could manage that on my own in training! Enjoy Sweden, Nicko. Stevie, reps look positive. oo- enjoy the weekend half. I'm off to Edinburgh next weekend for the rugby. My aim is to tick over until then (that w…

  • So my week hasn't panned out as planned. I have been suffering wit my middle back since January with physio not doing much to assist it. Went to gp Friday for tablets to relax muscles which he obliged so had a 5 day course of diazepam. Sadly they h…

  • Nice going, Andrew. Time to maybe go a bit further or a bit faster? I've had a crap week so far. The tablets (whilst making no difference at all to my back), have knocked my fitness for 6. Mondays 8 was tough going but I had put that down to Saturd…
