    c25k- mixed feelings about having to do that at this stage . But If it comes to it I think I’d build back on a cheap TM in the privacy of my spare room !

    Away on holiday in Pembrokeshire for the week so a rest for me. I felt I needed one but swimming and biking have replaced my beloved running. Did 4 widths of the pool and it felt like a 10k! Totally exhausted!

    Edit: I did sneak my running shoes in the suitcase just in case I could sneak a quick run!

    Think my run a few days tweaked the calf again. Going to rest it again until I can’t feel it, then try again. It’s a bloody nuisance. More time on the elliptical machine for me then.

    Not a lot of effort put in this week... but went to Parkrun this morning. Crawled out of bed and took it steady, still hot!

    JohnH - good the legals are in place, bound to be a long process but hopefully worthwhile in the end. Keep in the gym and positive!

    JTC - hope it goes great tomorrow, and you can overcome the hurdles...best of luck!!

    I ran a 'race effort' solidarity 10K neighbourhood run this morning and the results are in: taking time off from running after a bump in the head is slower than running regularly and not having a bump in the head!

    Good luck John :)

    Congratulations John on the marathon - the elevation looks epic and I can't wait to read the write-up up and away! :)

    Well done John!
    That final few miles uphill looks like really hard work right at the end..

    It was! Harder than Strathearn, came 170th from 375 finishers. Sub-4 never on the cards. I’m having two curries and a bottle of wine tonight, then the diet starts (plus at least a one week rest from running)....

    Hi Guys, I'll be in Horsham on August 11th and 18th - I have a feeling the 18th I'm more likely to make it to the park run if anyone would like to meet there.

    Good to hear. I will be in Taiwan on the 11th but should be back by the 18th. Will know better closer. Hope to make it.

    First Parkrun for over a year, 22:12 and more importantly 70.4%. It seems I am getting older faster than I am getting slower! 2nd VM55.

    My last 10K time would predict a 5K time just under 22mins, so there or there abouts.

    Felt OK, legs a bit heavy from a run on the hills on Thursday. Nice to enjoy the atmosphere and say hello to everybody.

    Superb time for a park run - presumably a 5k on the road would have been even faster!

    I still can't seem to get going in this heat... roll on January lol

    It's raining, I haven't run in the rain for what seems like eons. I love rain :p;) good to see you again my old friend!

    For me a combination of holidays and festivals mean that I am not getting enough runs in ahead of Manchester’s half marathon on 14th October or thereabouts. I need to accept that I’m not likely to get near to a pb, so take the training easy and avoid getting injured through pushing too hard to get fast too quick.

    Quiet indeed!

    News Flash first..if anyone is interested...Asics Kayano 24s (wot I wobble along in..) are on sale today at the Asics outlet store, 30% off and another 10% if you use code WELCOME10, so £94.50 delivered, which is a great price. Just ordered a pair.

    While I am here, a lot of people talk about the importance of doing slow miles. I am naturally inwardly competitive and really struggle to run slowly (slow for me that is). Even when using Runkeeper if the App tells me my pace is slower than I know I am capable of then feel the need to speed up. This probably explains my injury record.

    Any tips on how to run slowly (sounds like a stupid question I know).
