Haha, must admit the carb loading is my favourite bit! Dan, you may be about to take my gold marathon slot, but is there any chance we could add a new 'Carb Champion' row into our medal table?

Good luck Nicole & Dan.

I ran Paris at the weekend. Didn't get the result I was after but did get a 9 minute PB with a time of 4:33:28. I also have a 5 mile PB of 39:45 and a new half PB of 1:52:13 for when the table gets updated again!

Going to do some HR training before trying some shorter distances. And I still need to get that elusive Sub 1:50 half!

Welcome back acp, haven't seen you for a while! Well done on all the PBs, especially Paris! How did you find it? It was very hot last weekend, very glad it looks a bit cooler for Manchester. Don't worry, I'm still in the fast decreasing minority who haven't yet made that sub 1:50! Am determined to get there but it's a tough nut to crack

Hi Nicole. I've been busy on the P&D thread! The Paris weekend was great, the marathon not so much! It was a bit too warm and too congested which meant a lot of weaving. But the course was good - flat and plenty of sightseeing to be done on the way round. However, I was disappointed yet again with my inability to hold a decent pace for longer than half the distance and think I need to go back to the drawing board and try and improve my aerobic capacity. I will be trying to stick to shorter distances for a while which is going to be easier said than done. The marathon is hard to resist!
