Part way through marathontalk: Minni and RJ both on the podium, one held onto top spot, the other fell back to second.

Lorenzo - we'll have to be extra careful when posting at the same time now!!!

Too right - I held off responding for that reason!!!

Red, white and blue dress code at work so sitting at my desk in a Union Jack cycling top and very fetching red wig!!

May - 52 miles - 0 in last 19 days;  500 for year - about half of where i usually am by now.  Knee does seem to be responding to rest/exercises etc. Decided to (knee permitting) motivate myself by aiming for a low 20's parkrun by my 58th b'day (August). Managed 20:32 last Dec after autumn mara + XC season - low 20's wd be almost the age grade equivalent of my PB, but the point is having something a bit different to focus on. My last run was a p'run 3 weeks ago in 22:05 off dodgy knee and not much training. 
Good wishes to Poacher for the weekend  . . . .

Go on Lorenzo....

Didn't realise you were that old Birch - that must surely make you the oldest on this thread? I'd guess I'm up to about 900 miles this year.

Anyone looking at or doing the real relay? It is a lot of runners doing the whole torch route as runners and no minibus sections. 8,000 miles in 10 mile legs at about 10 min.mile pace 24 hours a day. They started 10 days behind the official realy but should be done in 55 days so will be at the end at the same time.

I am looking to do a leg or so when it is near me, may sneak out under the cover of darkness to do a night section.

Interesting PMS, will have to keep an eye on it for when they publish the local slots.

01/06/2012 at 17:08

Good spot PMJ - sounds a great thing to take part in. Will keep an eye on when they get close.

01/06/2012 at 20:26
Thanks for that link PMJ
Good to hear the knee is improving Birch
All the best to any racers this weekend, especially to Poacher and BikeIt - inspiring stuff

I had a look at that real relay site last night after listening to the first part of Marathon Talk. When it gets round to here I might give it a go if I can. 

Lorenzo, we also had a red, white and blue theme at work. I wore my London Marathon finisher's T-shirt.

PMJ - I'm surprised I even got a second with that time!

Speedy - how are you getting on with your speedy stuff? Have you written your next marathon schedule? Are you upping the miles again?
01/06/2012 at 21:06
Poacher have a great one. If you see a guy with union jack shorts called jerry give him a boot up the arse.

Bikeit - hope you have an awesome race mate. I have a dream floating about my head of doing comrades in sub 6:30 one day. No idea if it'll be possible. Maybe one day I'll try. hope you get what you're going for. Enjoy it, my mate says its iconic!

I'm going to race a five miler tomorrow. Doubt it'll be pretty.

Jezza Good news about the injury

Poacher As crazy as always. I too, in a slightly morbid way, wouldn't mind another foot photo

BikeIt Enjoy it and try and absurb as much as you can. I know a few others doing it as well.

OO Good luck for the weekend.

9 miles tonight. Legs feel heavy. Hopefully get 46 miles for the week, then a cut back next week.

01/06/2012 at 21:43

I ran another 10 miler tonight. I'm trying the Jubilee challenge; 60 miles in 6 days. 2 down, 4 to go- 4 days left of my holiday. 

Why will you cut back Scoobs?

01/06/2012 at 21:47

Minni - I wasn't enjoying it and wasn't seeing any results so ditched it. Training plan for Munich has been written (weeks ago) and starts with a rest day on June 25th. Meanwhile I'm busy having a life so not running much and getting fat. 

01/06/2012 at 23:07
Bring on the foot pics poacher

I made Jase literally jump out of his chair when I brandished my bloody toe at him on sun ! Tee hee. Very amusing

Sounds promising Jezza

All the best to bike it

Still no run since Edin for me and my self disappointment has been replaced with irritation that I was shit. Off on hol for a fortnight now - huzzah!
01/06/2012 at 23:23

Good luck to BikeIt - just looked at the route profile again and you are mad!

That real relay challenge looks good PMJ. I see the leicester leg is not up yet, will be interesting to see if I can make one of he legs near here.

All the best Bike It - do try and enjoy it. Looking forward to that report already.

Poacher will be on his way by now, so here go some virtual good luck vibes: ((((()))))

Jase - Racing again so soon? You must actually like this running lark, or something

PMJ - What a shame it's a month too early for me - I would definitely have liked to do that.
