"Don't stop me now, I'm having such a good time, having a ball."

6 times I've done that 26.2 and I still want to do it again. I'm envious.
20 times I've done the 26.2 with a number on. Some were unpleasant.
3 craps before the hooter, that's the routine.
1 time ran a perfect race.

So then. All you dailies, and ought-to-be-dailies just remember that you are having fun.
All you who aren't there, it is right to respect and to envy.

For me?
Palm Sunday Church service. I'll need paracetamol- being a bass, there's a lot of tenor notes to hit.
Evening: swim session. But the legs are twitching after today's bike ride.

I could read but not post after my travels yesterday - thank you for all the good wishes. Lovely to see Paddy and NZC popping in too.

Well done the parkrunners.

Blisters - if you want a mile of mine then nemae it, 19 has already been chosen by a friend who can't run but the others are yours for the choosing.

Not sure if I've overdone the carb loading, couldn't believe the amount I was putting away yesterday, then again as I'm currently eating breakfast with no problems, possibly not.

I might be reaching for a tim that's a littlew out of my reach today but if you don't try you won't know will you?

emzap - take it easy - don't want you getting injured now.

Great running all,

Saw some of the race in A&E.......

Long run cut short by a fall, when I got up realised that my finger was not how it should look, bent over with all the nail bed open and split down both sides, thought it was broken.... thankfully not, but did need 6 stitches.

11.75m run

Take care

Gulp, RFJ, that sounds a bit yucky!!

I couldn't find postie's number but it sounds like he did well.

LMH has set the standard for the girls on here . Massive congratulations!!! Dream time. Wow.

And so many people on the threads that I follow struggled today. A few did very well, but the were also a few DNFs and some big positive splits.

TBH, I'm shitting bricks thinking about next Monday

Chickadee: The run is the reward for the training...
Looked a tad warm out there reminiscent of 2007 when I looked like this:
