  • G-Dawg - are you not running in the XC league race next weekend? Gul - good mileage there. Looking in fine shape for Boston.  Speedy - hope that it's nothing too serious with your throat. I see that it's so cold there that the health authorities …
  • Afternoon folks - been a busy last couple of weeks so haven't found the time to post, but have been keeping up with news on Jools' music loving cat, a bonkers session on the treadmill from SBD and some speedy racing and training all round. Great par…
  • Badbark - heard that on my run this morning! Always great to hear your name there. Impressive session this morning. OO - I thought it was always chilly in the North East!  Good going this morning G-Dawg.  Just over 16 miles for me this morning …
  • +1 for the run up to Arthur's Seat. I always make a point of staying so where within striking distance of there if I've got an overnight in Edinburgh.  Great effort from your Mum Nicko. Looks like there will be more spectators than runners in Chand…
  • Poacher - great. Will be there, enjoying the opportunity to have a drink without feeling like my legs are going to collapse under me! Short sharp one this morning - just over 3 miles but picked up the pace on the up and downhill stretches, just to …
  • $358?! Crikey G-Dawg. I thought the $200 or so for Boston was bad enough. Makes you appreciate London although TBH given the demand I'm surprised they don't jack the price up a bit. Good double doubles there BTW. PMJ - wasn't it Febulous? Definitel…
  • 19.4 miles up to the top of Leith Hill and back - pretty much all off road with a total of 2,300 ft of elevation as it included a few other uphill parts. Good to get it in the bag, although felt rather exhausted and managed to fall asleep for a whil…
  • Great to catch up with Birch at the parkrun this morning - hope to be able to do this run again some time in the future if we ever up sticks and move up to Yorkshire!  OO - was your daughter also doing the Sheffield Hallam parkrun this morning? If …
  • Welcome back Jools. Sorry to hear about the injury but hopefully the road to recovery won't be too long.  Nicko - sounds like a tough choice and I guess depends on what sort of shape you're feeling in ref the sub-3 at the moment. If you think it's …
  • Thanks for the Boston tips folks. Looking forward to it, but short term focus is conquering the hills at the Sheffield Hallam parkrun on Saturday. Birch - I'll be in a blueish Comrades top and will be the one whose accent everyone laughs at when th…
  • 15 miles up and around Box Hill this morning to bring up just over 50 for the week. Was a few minutes slower than the time I'd normally do that route, but putting it down to the cold and also having run every day for the last fortnight. Will just be…

  • I think I'll wait until I get home before attempting to update the list. It's bound to go wrong if I try on my phone. Currently wrapped up warm about to watch younger Lorenzito run round Lloyd Park in Croydon in the County Champs.  Hope the back pr…
  • Can feel those stats all the way down here Poacher - great to get another 10 in the bag. Difficult to know which is the most impressive of all your figures Badbark - tempted to go with the 24 hour one, although the consistency to get to 3,700 miles…
  • Speedy - A while ago for Christmas I temporarily changed my name to something more festive, and then when I tried to change it back found that someone had taken the Lorenzo name! I did try to get in touch with them but no answer. 
  • Merry Christmas one and all - hope everyone's Spring marathon carbo loading practice has gone well over the last couple of days Speedy - great to see you back on here. Congrats on breaking the course record - doesn't surprise me that you're a dece…
  • Morning all - lack of structured approach to training + general busy-ness has meant that I've just about found the time to stay abreast of all the posts but not really found very much to say about what has been a "ticking over" period. Great to see…
  • Gul - I'd echo what others have said. It's not in every race that you can get a 10 minute PB so take time to reflect on, enjoy and bask in what you've achieved. The 3:30 monkey is now not just off your back but sent packing. Sounds like it wasn't…
  • Hope it's gone well for Gul today - report in please!!! Good trail run for you there G-Dawg. I was also out on the trails for a 19 miler up to Leith Hill and back - generally very pleasant along the Greensand Way but with 2,300 ft worth of climb a…
  • Good luck Gul - don't forget to relax and enjoy it!
  • Great going Badbark - amazing how you can just churn out one good performance after another. Stevie - I've often wondered about doing a triathlon, but TBH I could only really get turned on by the idea of the challenge of something like an Ironman b…
  • Some good speed sessions going on at the moment - nice sessions from DT and Stevie G-Dawg - looks to be perfect conditions for the XC later. See you there Sadly I didn't manage to get a place at the Mont Blanc Marathon so I've just spent the last …
  • Good bit of spontaneous marathon running there G-Dawg. Can't believe that you're not competing in the XC next weekend though. Nicko - sounds fun at Mansfield. 2018 in 2018 sounds like a good one to aim for. Reigate Park relays for me today - c. 2.…
  • Hope the parkrun went well Nicko - what XC nationals were happening today? Nice early 16 miler there Gul - no harm in having a rest day tomorrow. OO - all the very best for tomorrow. A friend of mine is running NY as well as having been out for a …
  • Gul - I'm just amazed anyone can fit in 20 miles and then be able to post before 7am! Good bit of progression there. Nice going Badbark - sounds as though you had everything very much under control DT19 - if it's any consolation it was $240 to ent…
  • Quiet day on here today! Good rep session there Gul - you've got more mental strength than me if you can manage 24 reps, regardless of the distance. Thanks for the recommendation on the shoes Stevie - called in at a running shop on the way home ye…
  • Thanks for the comments folks - appreciated. Great report Stevie - great to hear of a race strategy executed to perfection. Good week and parkrunning OO - how far off 100% is the knee? Two quick questions from me: 1. I'm toying with the idea of…
  • Stevie - super impressive. Well done! Great to catch you as you went past me on the track - I guess that you must have got things sorted out pretty quickly with your running belt. I had you briefly in my sights for the first mile but then you disapp…
  • Stevie - I think I'll go for the Dunmore Court car park. Can't remember where I parked last time I did it but this one seems to be next to a running shop and I might call in there on the way back as I could do with some new shoes. Will keep an e…
  • Jools - sounds grim. Hope you recover quickly. I cycle a fair bit via Santander bike(!) in London and see some shocking behaviour from road users (Addison Lee cab drivers seem to have a complete disregard for cyclists hard wired into them) and pedes…
