Sorry Toro, I missed you off the taper good wishes. I ran Berlin a few years back and it is a great event. It rained from the minute I arrived in Berlin and until I left but it still was an amazing weekend. The course is proper quick so I would to return again one year... and not just for the beer and sausage, which are excellent for refuelling.
Old No 7 - storming run in the 10. Well done, sounds like you are flying at the moment.
I am looking forward to hear how those racing have got on . Do we have Joolska, Al-P and TR all racing today? Fingers crossed the results are good.
PP, Lev - sounds like the taper is going well for Berlin and you are both in great shape.
Instead of my usual club ride yesterday I ran the local Parkrun in Richmond Park. I managed a 10s PB to finish in 5th in 18:09, which I am pleased with as it is a hilly course. Today was a steady 20 miles to bring up 58 miles for the week with a few bike miles. One more hard week then can start the taper.
LR 1976 - Yes we probably shook hands - so nice meet you? I avoided the guy chucking up and decided to congratulate the 2nd lady as we ran together for about 6 miles.
Wardi - well done on the solid sub 20 parkrun. £1.31 for a pint is pretty amazing. To be fair in London there are pubs were you can get a pint for under £2.50 and my local it is about £3.50. Anything close to £5 is always a shock.
Lev - I hope the manflu clears up. You are in amazing shape for Berlin
Steve6 - Well done on parkrun win and tempo. Which half you doing?
Joolska - good to see you are on the mend. Great mile reps and top weekly mileage.
Today I managed 22 miles with 4 at marathon pace (~6:40). I cannot say they felt comfortable but at least I managed them. So 110 bike miles and 53 run miles for week..mmh probably deserve another beer?
