Fraid my run didn't happen. We had guests pop round then i had to eat before the dentist as eating afterwards might be difficult.

Tooth extracted by cheerful dentist but can't run now - not advised. Still hope to get back to it tomorrow

Thanks for the replies to gels.
AF - oh yes i remember you are the toast man.

TmR - Sorry missed saying congrats to you for yesterday great to pb esp good. Well done

Adrian - well done for yesterday. Just curious whens the next 10km, not horndon perchance

AF I do hope that it is not a panic inducing fracture as you intimate.

Ceal: Of course I must add my congratulations to a worthy winner and record holder. Apart from the running bit, how much stretching and core work do you do in order to avoid injury and stay supple?

TmR pb'd? Did I miss out the opportunity to congratulate? The good times are here again!

Righty ho. Just back in and showered twice. Once by a rumbly cloud. Once was neeece and warm. 9.8 miles, mostly lost around the East End of London, Docklands and Canary Wharf. I tried to track that bit of the mara route but it just did not seem right. I even found Mudchute but without the cheering crowd 5 deep (and Mrs S) it seemed odd. I could swear that there were ghosts of forumites still there. I am able to report tonight courtesy of Garmin whose technology brought me home. Otherwise I'd still be out there heading for Tower Bridge and going completely the wrong way.

Gobi - you sound one very happy person.

Ceal - fantastic achievement - thanks for explaining the 101%

TMR - congrats on the discus PB.

Adrian - sounds like there is much more to take off your new PB.

AF - be careful with the lacing of your shoes!!

Blisters - sounds like you had a good run.

What: 6 miles hilly - quite warm by the time I'd finished.

Good running everyone.

Hi Pammie*

I wont be at Horndon, am doing the Cliffe Woods 10k next month. Its only 5 miles from where I live and a couple of old school friends I bumped into on Sunday are doing it. A good excuse for a catch-up beer afterwards as well.

Hi NZChristine

There is definitely a lot more to come, just kicking myself for not making the most of Sunday. Did the first 6K in about 26 mins and feeling strong, but was running at a faster pace than I was planning, panicked and slowed my pace right down (to virtually a walk). Got to the end with a lot left in the tank. I guess the pacing will come with experience.

Gels - carry one in a 10 miler but not usually used unless I did a long warm up, I take one at 9 miles(ish)in a half marathon.

Cheers all, the race was very different and yeah being sucked in. That said inside me a runner is still waiting to get out.
