Lorenzo - great result and report - but the big question remains, did you go clubbing afterwards?
Birch - must have felt good to be racing again, even on that little sleep!
PMJ - excellent mile result
My jolly involved expresso martinis at 1am which probably wasn't the wisest idea...but good fun! Did a 6 mile progressive pace run Saturday and then 8 steady yesterday. My hip's been feeling a bit sore recently so decided not to do more than that. I'll see how it reacts this week and then hopefully take the distance up a bit again at the weekend.
Lorenzo - OK, so it was only a marathon but Minni took us clubbing on the Toon after the Town Moor in 2012. Did wonders for the DOMS - my legs felt the best ever the next day after a marathon. So I'd say go for it
Poacher - I agree that was a cracking quote in BB's post. I also couldn't resist the temptation of going back to 2014 and finding out what the reference to "walnut" was all about....really wished I hadn't done that
I'm off shortly for a two-day half-jolly/half-work thing in a posh hotel in Newbury. We'll be working this afternoon but the hotel have agreed to record the football for anyone who wants to watch it afterwards....what are the chances of nobody checking the scores on their phones....?
PMJ - that is a very speedy 4 miler! Nice to run in Central Park - I was there one year and there was a race on, I think that was 4 miles too. I wasn't running it (I ran in the opposite direction!), but I couldn't believe how many runners there were - I can quite imagine half a mile to the last pen. It was the end of January and absolutely freezing cold too.
GD - nice 10 miler, good way to kick off the Berlin campaign.
Another interval session on Saturday and then 15 miles yesterday. Lovely to get out in some sunshine for once.
