Did the Birmingham and Black Country Half on Saturday, Wolverhampton to Brindley Place along the towpaths. First organised event for the best part of 18 months, got the distinct impression everyone was flagging in the last 2-3 miles. Did it in 1:49:08 which I was happy with all things considered. Itís the first time Iíve done this one and itís a nice route, takes in quite a lot of my regular training locations.

Tedious, monotonous, shite.

Glad I did it but fuck me, never, ever again.

Just did my slowest ever 5k. Turns out 30 degree heat and associated humidity is beyond me!

I went for one at 6.45 am yesterday and it was a massive effort even then because of the heat.

Well done, that's pretty amazing going.

I'm going to give it a go, but am going to break it down it into 2K chunks, spread over 50 weeks. Absolutely the same thing though, obviously!

Well done. The longest I've done was 88k and it does get monotonous. The upside with ultras (for me) is they are events where simply finishing means satisfaction. In marathons I'm just constantly obsessing about pace and time goals, whereas in an ultra I don't even think about it.

2 weeks later and Iím still suffering with sore feet, my daughter (the doctor) reckons itís nerve damage.
Finally getting back to a reasonable pace on longer runs, maybe in the next week or so I might even hit some threshold miles, honestly that race fucked me up big time.

I'm able to run at least half marathon distance on the flat again now and very steadily down steep hills on the road. Would like to do under an hour for ten miles. Have a pretty quick route near me, but not managed to get under 1:01:50 so far.

Did some short reps a few weeks ago for the first time in over 20 years a few weeks ago - 15 times walk 100m, tempo a little over 100m, full pelt a little over 200m. Horrible!

Intervals are the devils work. I completely misjudged my session this morning and ended up doing a Z4 3 min interval up the steepest hill in our village. Pass the oxygen!
