• You do seem to have had a bit of a run on the injuries – it’s enough to get anyone down – I think with them all being right sided it might be there is some underlying weakness somewhere in that sides chain that needs addressing? But Yayyy to a sprint tri if there are any glute weaknesses (always my first suspicion when someone has a desk job)…[Read more]

  • Great results from the weekend there Dorothy and Mull sounds a lovely half to do 🙂

      RAS W5-R1 – steady 10 in Z2 – hmm well I got my wrist slapped a lot in that one – first 4 miles I had a gentle breeze and was mostly successful at keeping in z2 and the hr wasn’t disastrous but after that I strayed into the very bottom of zone 3 at least twice every mile – putting pace for heartrate down to the temperature today, and it could have…[Read more]

    • It’s a proper balancing act when you have to be somewhere else. Looks like a successful one anyway Sharnie

    • The poor old sun is getting the blame from everyone at present. Pretty good going though, could of been lots more Z3 in there. Good miles you put in here and a good time for Z2 pootling. Well done Mrs S xx

    • Think you did well to stay in zone 2 as much as you did in that heat! Fab weekday miles and not surprised you were tempted by the river at the end 🙂 🙂

    • Great tenner and despite the slapping you still managed to keep the z3 rather calm and not too much complaining! Not so easy in this weather and no doubt the river must have looked appealing…

    • Well done Sharnie, I can imagine the river was very tempting.

    • that’s a great 10 and I’m sure HR is raised due to heat, guess higher HR is an attempt by the body to keep the core temperature down

  • Sounds a lovely outing, nice to go back and see how much these places have changed, good new kicks test too – definitley going to be hotting up over the next few days 🙂

  • Good route choice to try and dodge the heat – it’s definitely not as windy as yesterday that’s for sure – looks a spot on and very well behaved recovery Mr S 🙂 xx

  • Looks good from here Helen, and I think in this weather you just have to keep it relaxed and go with the flow 🙂 good early start to the day 🙂

  • It’s good to see both are changing – but worth keeping an eye on – I’d be looking to get that cadence up to 175-180 at speed – it can become frustrating working on it so don’t over focus, it can suck the joy out of the running – but worth thinking about 🙂

    Absolutely no need for that Dave – pace is entirely relative – you only measure yourself against yourself and if you find yourself coming up short on that yardstick then you’re well within your rights to express your displeasure, this running business is a personal thing – I’d love to be able to churn out a weekly 5k at the pace of your…[Read more]

    🙂 I’ll bet – it looked glorious 🙂

  • Love the bling 🙂 – looking forward to the write up now 🙂 well done both 🙂

  • Good steady outing there Emma and back in the game 🙂 🙂

  • Well that sounds like a tough couple of weeks – hope the arthritis is settling and you’re feeling better x That’s a superb long run and you look like you’re in a great place for the mara 🙂
    Tri training is super frustrating – when one element is going well another goes all to pot and it’s a continuous cycle of gains somewhere and losses somewhere…[Read more]

  • Think I’m right with you on the continuous running thing – the stoppy starty reps carry far too much potential for doing yourself a mischief – looks a great session and some lovely splits in there Richard – well done 🙂

  • Well that sounds a lovely relaxed recovery bimble and I’m also sure the extra 5 min will be forgiven since you were being so sensible with the pace – perfectly done and great to hear nothing was grumbling about the hillage 🙂

  • What a stunning picture – as beautiful start lines go that’s right up there for sure!! Look forward to the write up 🙂

  • super pace in this hot weather Barrry – not surprised you were overheating 😮 looking on target for the 5k 🙂

  • Sorry Richard it really sounds like I’m having a go at parkrun – I’m not – I can only judge on the hearsay and feedback I’ve had, but when I’m getting directly told it’s cliquey, full of competitive club runners and unwelcoming I’m not going to be recommending it again in a hurry.  I think it’s hard to appreciate going into the weekly parkrun as…[Read more]

    Lol – for once I judged my rest day perfectly 🤣🤣 was blowing a hoolie all day here – looks great work for Z2 to me ‘ wind, heat and hills/steps – always going to be at least the odd incursion into Z3 – don’t worry so much about the %z3 – drop the run pace gradually to Z2 then you learn to judge by feel where it is – then every few weeks go out and…[Read more]

    Think that would be my choice too – it’s too hot to produce anything special time wise so you might as well be kind to the legs and go for a happy trot 👍 good work here 😊
