S3200H - I think Emmy has 'seen' Khanivore on FB, we need to get him back on here and get him to do some training (if he's not been running)
Iain - LOL at the banner, your poor long suffering OH
Lily - you may well surprise yourself at GNR
mamafox - a boa constrictor I would have sprinted off.
Keith - would be good if you could make dinner at Chester
SK - what a performance re the bike, not very encouraging to get folk to cycle, you'll have to write to Boris.
I've not had any problems with RW site but it's often a bit wobbly and seems more so when I'm using my phone. I wrote a long post at Dublin airport and lost the whole thing, most frustrating.
Jugula - good luck with tomorrow's run.
I've cut my run short this morning as my foot is sore again. Yesterday I didn't have a single twinge and noticed later that the swelling seems to have all gone. But when I woke this morning it was a bit sore but still no swelling so went out for my run, pain level up to about 2.5 but wasn't happy so cut run short and came home. I will rest tomorrow and then assess on Monday, may have to DNS Dingle
mamafox - no it's not an injury I've had before but I have had the odd twinge there when starting a run now and then over the last few months, but literally for a few seconds.
Yes, I may have to put up with the cheddar getting a bit warm but at least the flavour will be better than the sweaty processed stuff I ate last week.
Big G - there are still EA rules enforced re pacing, and the Duchy disqualified a female runner who was paced round by a man a few years ago, she finished in 1st or 2nd place. Although there are pacers in many races now, they rarely pace the whole event (for the elite) and for us lesser mortals there are pacers to the finish line should we choose to use them. I think a true PB is one you run on your own at your pace.
I too agree Paula is an outstanding runner and I don't think we'll have such a good runner again.
I don't think the women have had the incentive to beat/reach Paula's record, whereas with the men they are chipping a few seconds here and there at their world record, the women would need to improve by nearly 2 minutes, which is a lot at their pace.
