mamafox - good choice for your Spring marathon, you did a good PB there didn't you? A million times smaller than Paris is a big plus from me.
Iain - you've had this before, I would guess shin splints (generic term for shin pain) and in your case caused by too much fast and hard running. You need to ease right back and check your shoes are cushioned enough.
WD60 - you're building up your mileage well and it sounds like you're enjoying your training too.
SK - I guess your son was only trying to help his class mate
Big G -that's a long steady climb up to Haytor. If I run to Haytor I usually go via Parke House way, haven't done that route for ages.
Much milder this morning, had a lovely run, the birds were singing and Ziggy the Weimaraner didn't maul me, I think he's bored with me now so no longer sees me as his morning's sport, thankfully
