Nell- it's cup semi weekend in England too. You're lucky seeing your team as I've had to give my Liverpool tickets at Wembley to my boys as I can't get there. Hope our respective teams reach their finals. You'll have got your run done by now. im sure all went well.
Barry -hope the glute is on the mend. Mine is about the same.
AA- been to the expo yet ?
Chick- tasty reps. Next time eat the pizza after the run and you will avoid the stitch
Ykw today with my two daughterS which was a first. 20.11 by me and 24xx by them. I've now equalled my YKW pb three times
Paul- another view- my first VLM was in 2006 and I did 8 long runs ,6of 20 miles or over and a HM of 1.31.33.and completed VLM in 3.27.I ran my LRs at under 8mm pace on average. In 2012 I did VLM after 11 long runs a HM of 1.32 and completed it in 3.14. The latter was my 7th marathon so I had the benefit of conditioning over several years there .Assuming you've done the mileage and long runs sub 3.30 should be possible. By the way I've never done a sub 40 10k but my marathon pb at 55 is 3.09 . Let us know how you get on . I'm there too
Chick- not surprised you are feeling it after that collection of impressive runs. What's pencilled in as your next race? Ah...the Newton Hills...doing them twice is enough .
Nell- don't have a spikey ball trying to make do with a tennis ball. What's the technique? Your 4 were a good deal faster than mine today...nothing new there
O4S- down ?? to racing weight...what about all the cake you've scoffed? Tough trip there
Interesting day for me- went to a doctors appointment which I forgot is tomorrow, late for work as one of our Shetland ponies is sick and I had to chase it around the field(only interval session so far)for the vet,arranged a day trip to the Monaco Grand Prix,sorted out my daughters visa to India, and even did some work and then later on caught the disobedient pony again for its medicine.
Glute bit of a problem ....definitely a pain in the @rse
AA-dont worry about the hills the crowds are big and will shout you up them with..'looking good'..'awesome'...good job'..etc. What's your number?Looks like Baz and I will both be using that tennis ball.
