Thanks Clearly.  Certainly not one of my best

Only just got back from a week long holiday post vlm- just wanted to say a massive well done, Martin!

Not so good for me-  Heat wiped me out on the day- massive positive split and run/walk from 16m saw me finish in 3:13.  Really loved the day though and can't wait til next year Still, onwards to Chester in the meantime.

I'll probably see you there Jason d, I signed up last week. It looks a good course and fairly flat.

KR- indeed, flat and possibly fast

Thanks Jason.  It was a tough day but luckily I managed to slow down before it really hit me.

I love VLM and will be back next year in fancy dress just running for "fun".

Well done Martin. Fabulous report. I just hope I can run 2:58 in 2012!! 1:26 in Reading (daughter is 10 months so pleased with that) gets me in, so with a few more months of running under my belt I'll hopefully be there or thereabouts. Well done mate!!

Thanks Mitchie.  I'm sure with a 1.26 under your belt (excellent time with a 10 month old) and a whole year of running ahead of you, you'll smash 3.00.  What is your marathon PB at present?

2:59 Martin, but I was aiming for 2:50 that year and it was my first marathon. When twins were 2.5 in 2009 I ran 3:03 at London, but have gotten fitter much more quickly after baby girl so hoping I can make it back to decent shape in 12 months time.

I am sure, Mitchie,  that with a 1.26 behind you and a 2.59 in your first marathon you have the knowledge and ability to go sub-3 again.  Having done it once you know what it takes and you have the time so I am sure you will smash your PB.

Out of interest I ran a new 5k PB this morning at our local Parkrun.  17.34 and 2nd place behind a very fast teenager.  Post marathon fitness and speed still there
