Chickadee - 1.40 is still pretty good.
I think the main thing is you want to run a good 10k is to run 60 miles a week - if you can do that you can run hard from start to finish, and you seem to be able to handle mileage easily so shouldn't be a problem for you, and if you throw in a few quality sessions too to make it interesting, it should be good.
Mava - good long runs.
Stickless - lovely that your brother-in-law was able to make it to the alter. You sound like you are getting pretty strong.
JEB - congrats for your 10k PB and 3rd placing - good on you.
ZaTTu - great stuff - good to be back!! Let's hope they don't round it to 73!
Sporta - nice 50km there mate! Good luck for Longtom!!
What: 3000m - 13.00.94 - only wished it was 12.59.94 what a difference a second makes
Good running everyone.
Chickadee- well done
ZaTTu -good comeback
Sporta - good 50km
NZC - next time for going under..
Me - 4 laps of lightning run 12 hour race, only did that (4 laps) as running partner was ill, so treated as a long run then declared myself finished after the 4 laps (22.5m) niceLSR done.
Rounded to 73:00 unfortunately NZC. Nice 3k.
Gobi - best of luck for it. Sounds like a completely different course from your last 100km (iirc that was the Italian one?).
RFJ - sounds like a nice way to bag a long run.
Puffed away on a nice Cuban (Montecristo Petit Tubo for anybody interested in such things) with a drop of Scotch this evening. I feel like I've finally put the whole knee saga behind me.

Evening! (or should I say good night?)
@Little M.iss Ultra Happy & MavaYeah, I can't complain about the recovery from the injury. It was actually quite severe. I crushed the "bump" on outside of the ankle (don't know the English word for it) and ruptured 3 tendons while at it. It ended with me having 1 titan plate, 8 titan screws and some staples to fixate the bone and put the tendons back to where they where supposed to attach to the bone.Nice long runs.@JEB1974Nice raced, and congratulations to the 3rd place.@chickadeeeThere are tons of more races to run. Just take your experiences from this race with you to upcoming ones. Under performing sucks, but we all do it once in a while.@ZaTTUBummer it was rounded up. However, nice raced this early in the season. Looking forward to see your progress towards your fall marathon. I think I'll take my chances with spikes even if they trash my calves for a few days. I think I need all the help I can get to cut a few extra seconds.@NZChristineIsn't it pretty usual to hit that :00 or :01 as a runner? I feel like I do it in at least half of my races
What: 75min easy paced runWhy: Easy runs make racing easy Last hard: Thursday maybe?Last rest: -
An ok training week with 87 miles run. Cutting down the mileage to around 60 during next week to allow for recovery and some kind of performance on Thursdays 3k.
