SJ - just watched Outlaw. Great coverage & cracking finish line celebration from you! Very inspirational + you beat Jamie Quarry. I recognised the scenery on the run from the Notiingham Marathon. Of course, I hadn't already swam 2.4 miles and biked 112!
Birch - Had a look at the Mablethorpe website. Looks like a good venue & course.
10 miles at mp in lovely late summer sunshine this evening.
Gerard - Glad to read that you're feeling a bit more positive about your future. I always like the look of Sketchers and the advert on the back of Runner's World with Meb K works very well!
Poacher - Glad to read that you were spared serious injury in your car accident. Hope it's all sorted soon.
Gul - Good paced 10 miler there.
Abbers - Nice posh outing to the cricket - unusual birthday present. Hope the achilles continues to improve.
Slokey - I also laughed at the thought of your holiday swimming! With all your swimming and cycling, a sub 3 marathon off 40 mpm should be within your reach. I've rarely go above 35 mpw for the last 7 years and in that time have run marathons between 3:05 and 3:12.
Brooks are my trainer of choice - Aduro for the road and Cascadia for the trails. Both nice and cushioned.
20.2 miles in the pouring rain yesterday and a sunny bike ride this morning.
OO - Enjoy the Riviera. It sounds a beautiful place for your hols.
Gerard - Glad your recovery continues and nice to be chilling. GC is definitely my favourite holiday destination and not just for the sun, sand and sea. Only a few miles inland and you're on brilliant mountain trails. Mrs. F1 and I enjoyed two 8 mile treks during the week.
Abbers - Watch those cricket injuries! I used to get similar problems mixing squash and running. Yes...being a father in law makes me feel older and more responsible than I really want to be - the wedding was brilliant, a truly memorable day.
