Hi Baldbloke  -  I'll be in Amsterdam in October too but only for the half, my first in that lovely city!  I'll be the one with the ridiculously pink face and the ridiculously fit husband who won't even have broken a sweat.... Good luck with the training!

Baldbloke - good luck in your prep! You too Lilytoo - or said another way Lilytoo too

Well done Nessie on your group work - hope you weren't to tough on 'em!

Me - 5 miles with a couple of efforts.

Chin chin,

4M Easy/Steady on a warm dull, smiry rainy morning.

6 miles GA,  Only two words appropriate enough to describe the weather this morning, f**king biblical.

28/06/2013 at 10:35

SB, we keep doing the same run!

6 Miles in f'in biblical rain here to. Got so wet I now have sore nipples - oh dear

Chin chin,

Lilytoo, are the Amsterdam races finishing in the Olympic Stadium? It's superb!

0600 and a neglected route revisited: Crosby Village, Blundellsands, Coastguard Station and a long stretch down the beach.  Just in before the rain too.

5.7 miles.

Just over 5k last night for me.  Same route as I did Tuesday night, so 1km fairly steep uphill at the start then a more gradual decline back down to sea level and a couple of Km's on the flat.  Nice route overall.  Rained a fair bit but could have been worse!

Have a good weekend

Hi Swittle  -  yes I believe so  -  really looking forward to it!  I used to work for an airline that flew there so me and OH have been going to Amsterdam on and off since we left university thirty odd years ago and we've been there at every stage of our lives so it'll be nice to mark the 10th half marathon we'll have done together by doing it there

Some nice running all.  It was fairly pishing down here too today but also fairly warm, which are great conditions for me. So I did a lovely 10.2 hilly miles. Came back soaked to the skin

I wondered who that was clomping along behind me!

Hi, Lilytoo.  You'll know the course then.  I ran the Mara in 2004 - loved the section that went *through* the Rijksmuseum!

Hope your training goes well and here's to a terrific race

28/06/2013 at 20:46

Fri 7.30pm - 5km woodland easy pace

didn't mind the rain this evening - found it quite refreshing  - Fudge came back like a drowned rat

looking forward to a local 10k on Sunday

good running weekend everyone

Some good training going on

4.5M Steadily off road for me. Okay run.

Double quality this morning. Club 1k champs (3.50 - disappointing) followed by an hour of continuous hill running on Hampstead Heath.

Sorry, Strangely. Gorgeous weather in London town.

Had a 5 mile race after work yesterday. It doubled up as the county championship. No surprise but I got beasted by a lot of grannys and grandads but hit a PB (as I'd never done a 5 mile race before) of 42 minutes 31. So 8.5 mins per mile. I know I can do better. I think I hold off on increasing my pace till too late in the race and ended up with a ( hope I got this right) a positive split. My 2nd half was slower than the first.

Hey Baldy, it was ok here too.  Mild and sunny when I went out, bit breezy though.  11 miles slow run with, I dunno, maybe 11 flies swallowed.

29/06/2013 at 20:43

SB- swallowing the flies isn't as bad as when they fly right into your eyeball, suicide eyeball bombers
