+1 on the chocolate milkshake, but I prefer a Frijj. Rosie, any tips from last week, I've got a marathon 2 weeks away, followed up with 33 miles 6 days after. My recovery from Brighton hasn't been brilliant, but I put that down to 3 hours driving the day after, which I'm sure isn't in the plan.
Well Done Rekirabbit, FH and Rosie. Great effort and glad the weather was good..... whilst you were running anyway.
I was jealous watching the marathon on the tele. Hopefully will get a place this year. if not through the ballot then hopefully through my club.
Have you caught up on any of the footage Mary Keitany and Wilson Kipsang were amazing. Was gutted for Lee Merrien though. He really gave it his best and just missed out on Olympic Qualifying time.
I thought Kipsang was going to break the world record but fell off the pace a little at 20miles.
The pace in both races was brutal.
Rosie - nice to meet up with you briefly yesterday morning. Well done on another great run - that's a very good time just a week after Paris! What will be your aim for Edinburgh?
Funny Hat - well done to you too and everyone else.
I ended up with an 8 minute pb finishing in 3:20 so very happy!
Whoop whoop Minni!!
Well done reikirabbit!!
Fantastic PB Minni! 8mins off! Was it VLM last year you got your PB at? That's an amazing difference at that pace.
Hope you're both recovering ok and have got some celebration in
mcs - for long runs when i need more than 500ml fluid (that's my bottle capacity) i also carry another 500 ml in a used plastic drinks bottle, use this one first then throw it in a bin during the run - another option i used abroad when you needed a lot of water was to park the car at a pinch point and do 3 loops returning back to the car after each one, carried my keys and it only takes a few seconds to open the car and exchange empty for full bottle
easy 9 miler for me this weekend as only a week after that to my race.......................!!!!!

Absolutely Minni! Can relate very much to running in a comfort zone. 8 mins in a year is fab! Well done!
One of the things Sam said to me that was really helpful was about not backing off when it gets unconfortable or I started breathing harder in a race. Sunday was definitely me in comfort zone, but was really surprised by my time as last year's races were that pace when I was trying hard, those I did comfortably were nearer 3:45-3:55, so it's highlighted that the rest and speedwork etc have made a difference as well as the pacing. Do you have another target now or focussing on recovery for a bit?
FH, that split looks a lot like me last year. To get a 20min PB when you've gone out too fast suggests as you say that NY could be even better. How are you feeling this week?
mcs - on long runs I've done a similar thing to oscarr with laps and drinks in the car or at the front door of my flat, I find it easier than stopping to buy stuff or the preplanning required to stash on route
