Minni v Dubai Dave
AA- there were lots there but I joined the group near the front and everything flowed smoothly away from the start, congestion free . I've seen how you dealt with it at your HM.
Oh so good allround - great reports, great splits. We've been going for over two years now and still we continue to improve. I'm not kidding I think we'll have a team in Rio!
Well done Barry!
Just back from my 20. The weather closed in at 12 miles and I got the extra layers on that were tied around my waist. Legs are tired from yesterday. Sort of spat the dummy at mile 16 - not that it made an difference because I had to get home. Thankfully Guns and Roses came on the ipod and HTFU messages from Spoons and AA got me back on the road. 20m @ 8.29.
Minni- yes Rio is looking good . It's good to see everyone s hard work paying off. Talking of hardwork, that LR must have been tough even without yesterday's excellent race in your legs...well done. So one week ends and another starts tomorrow with nil logged- always look on the bright side eh?
AA I'm over the moon for you. Brilliant running, doing it for the girls, absolutely bloody marvellous
Smashed 1:30 Barry, cracking pace, sounds like you've had a good morning out
Spoons - quality choice of listening for your turbo session
Oompa - great XC running, you make them sound fun! Spike hole sounds painful...
What are quad guards Minni? I was thinking of you out running this afternoon when the rain set in, I knew you'd be hardcore and just crack on with it
2old well done on the second fastest 10K, really good pacing throughout.
I did my planned 18M today. PAIN FREE!!! I honestly can't believe the difference since Thursday when I couldn't even walk down the stairs without it hurting, the physio session was money very well spent. Ran easy, forced myself to slow down on the downhills, had a very enjoyable 18 miles @ 8:26. Followed by more lunges and stretches! Happy happy happy
My fingers were so cold on the bike this morning I had to keep flexing my hand to get blood to my fingers. I have now injured my hand WTF?!!
WTF indeed Spoons! Random injuries are cruel.
Some tough running around Hamsterley Forest Shildon, is there any route around there that can't be described as really hilly?
Oompa - Not a PB for me but still very happy. Well done on the 20 after yesterday's efforts.
AA - Looking good for sub 1:30 at Reading are you pacing Brol or vica versa, very impressive WAVA for you from today. Just a couple of beers during the rugby, about to open the red.
Carrot - Great news on the injury, must be a relief.
Shildon - sub 3:15's been my target for a while. Got very close, hopefully this time.
Minni - Good long one from you, well done for pushing out the last few.
Brol - Good long one in naff conditions.
Carrot - like calf guards but ones designed for quads. Great news from you today.
Master Minni about to tackle in the match today.
Any other ladies feeling the pressure thanks to AA today...? Looks like she'll be driving the sub 3:15 train in London.
Minni I'm really looking forward to seeing how everyone is going to do in London, it's brilliant to see AA is now a strong candidate for that 3:15. It's really inspiring to think of how much the women on here have improved so well over the years
Carrot- re VLM - looks as though we'll all end up in Chandos at the same time after it this year
Minni-she's right, we need to buck up our ideas! it's going to be a long pink train. Where does master Minni get his toughness from I wonder ?
Simon- shame you couldn't run today, better than the ergo of death
Did a 10.5k recovery run tonight so I wouldn't have to do it tomorrow. 65 miles for the week. Not sure what I'll fit in this week before I go skiing.
Too tired to read back properly but congrats to AA, Barry and 2old, plus apologies to any other racers I have missed to date - I'll do a proper trawl though tomorrow.
30 miles D&D'd, in some of the worst conditions I have ever experienced in an ultra. Rained all day, going from moderate to heavy, cold wind in the last 10 miles and man eating mud up to your shins in places, everywhere else deep lying water and loose rubbly gullies. My hands were so numb I couldn't even pick up the cake to eat it!! Proper report tomorrow when I thaw out and my sense of humour is restored
O4S- watched Henry V tonight and your mud experience sounds just like the mud and crap that contributed to the victory in Agincourt for the English -heroic! You should ve had FRC there to feed you coffee and cake like he did for me .
Simon- don't forget the 2.5 mile warm up too
