Martin - Great report of your run - timed to perfection. Like the thought of the hotel staff wondering who had been using the bath.
TR - what's the theory with diarolyte?
Lorenzo - Marvellous pudding - is that with cream or custard?
Ant - Missing a couple of super long runs is always going to hurt a campaign. You still ran a speedy last k, which is never easy - and 3:15 shouldn't be thought of as miserable. Unusual 'brief encounter'!
Did a beautiful 12 miles of trails and fells in Langdale yesterday followed by a tasty pint and cheese sandwich at the Old Dungeon Ghyll. Cracking weather and legs felt nearly recovered from Manchester.
Already congratulated some of the brilliant VLM performances, but this thread is so busy.
TR - Cracking run, after a difficult February. Your time makes me think that you must be suited to marathons.
PMJ - 10 years ago, I had a terrible marathon experience that put me off road marathons for 5 years. There's always a lot to think about when things don't go to plan - TR's advice looks like a good option
Minni - Glad to see you're up beat after your urn on Sunday. I have to say, that I was looking forward to sharing a 3:12 with someone else on this thread. What are your plans?
Sandy - Great PB! 30 seconds per mile quicker is a lot!
Speedy - I am in awe of your London time. A fabulous performance.
