Great half Barry. You and Col seem to be going sub 90 so often now its just not news any more. OK, OK - I'm clearly just jealous!
Pink - you'll get the half performance you deserve soon, somedays it just doesnt happen!
Nice racing Cooks. Try and keep your ykw course vom free...
Must have been awesome O4S - I saw it go through at Blackfriars bridge on Monday. Not Yorkshire, but still pretty cool.
I seem to be having my customary pre marathon lapse, a mix of resting sore foot and being too damn busy has kept me from training for over a week now. Off for 6 days of bike touring tomorrow, so unlikely to run again til next week... Why do I always do this?! Oh well, looking forward to a bastille day ride up Ventoux!
Enjoy your bike Barry! Shame about the results this time, but you'll just have to run a faster time next time round!
Nice teamwork with your rival runners for another swift sub 90 Col.
Sore foot today after wearing new trainers laced too tight yesterday on my run to work. Feels like mild tendonitis, so gonna take a few days off til it goes. Boo.
Heading home to Scotland to be a very proud daughter when my mum runs in the Glasgow 2014 queens baton relay through Dunblane on Saturday (O4S - if you are lurking, her trousers fit better than yours did). Sad that I wont get to see any of Andys matches this time while I'm up there .
Oh, and VLM GFA peeps - I've had my place confirmed now for 2015.
Nice parkrun pink - thats a pair of massive PBs for both you and barry this weekend
Great long run chick - the world seems right again now you are back doing your usual massive mileage!
Did my 20, first 12M with BH so nice and slow, and a beautiful day out on the south downs. Went a wee bit faster for the last few miles and felt good. If I keep this up I should be able to get myself in PB shape for 2 months time.
DD - sounds like you shouldn't give up on the running yet
I'll race anything for free beer chick!
Col - I always run fastest in 5k when I manage to negative split and not overcook the first mile, but its so hard to get right. I find the best way to do it is to parkrun week after week, each week I get slightly better at feeling out the right pace.
Just over 5M trail run today in the mighty west sussex fun run league Downlands Dash. Ended up 2nd lady, but nae prizes! Damn it! Very different vibe to last weeks Hackney half - when I finished this one the Karate demonstration was just ending, the waggiest tail section of the dog competition was being judged, and the morris dancers were warming up ready to wow the crowds.
For some reason I had Bay City Rollers, Shangalang in my head the whole race. Hope I shake that before my 20 tomorrow...
