Great performance from the Thunder Runners - podium finish and all the bling that goes with it. Definitely looking good for a trip to Durban next year eh?
Similarly awesome stuff from SJ - I still can't comprehend how anyone can keep going for that length of time.
Thoughts go out to GM - not sure what to add, other than to encourage you to stick around here.
Good luck to PMJ and Gul in their assault on the mile. I'm definitely nowhere near sub-6 pace at the moment, let alone sub-5:30, but I'm planning on doing the York parkrun on Saturday so will see how that goes. Will be happy with anything beginning with a 1!!
Looking at the scores on the doors for July shows a slight imbalance:
Bike miles: 675 (record monthly mileage) including longest ever ride on one day (150 miles)
Run miles: 67
Sprained ankles: one
Have changed our holiday plans from Israel to central Spain (Castilla y Leon) so will hopefully get some runs in before it gets too warm.
Bet you were pleased with that run Marrows - you too OO.
Hope you enjoy the Games Jools - will be keeping my fingers crossed for Marigold. One of our club, Luke Caldwell, is running in the 5000m this evening. Great inspiration for the juniors to be able to see how far someone who started in the junior section can go.
Poacher - haven't sorted out the pass out yet, but I'm making good progress!
Pleasing 11 miles for me this morning - longest run for nearly 3 months. Plenty of hills so average pace of 7:50 shows I haven't lost too much fitness.
Sitting in the sun at Tooting athletics track about to watch younger Lorenzito have another crack at the 3000m but they've had an hour's delay while they sort the seedings for the 100m races out. No idea what they've been up to!!
Jools - good show of cards on the table there. Based on the amount of PB'ing you've been doing recently, it's eminently doable.
Marrows - good going. What's the next race in your calendar? I'm not doing the Ride London 100 as I wasn't sure what our holiday plans were. As it is it wouldn't have been a very popular decision in the Lorenzo household as we're flying out early on the following morning for two weeks in, er, Israel.
Having said that, I'm hoping to get out and watch it as the route passes very close to our house and we're only about 5 miles from the loop the pros do four times through Dorking. What number / colours will you be riding in?
After a couple of days not running I gave the ankle a quick test this morning - 4.5 miles easy with no ill effects so that's a hopeful sign.
Apparently I'm suited for middle distance cycling (not too bad), middle distance swimming (suspect not) and wrestling (??!!). On the other hand, I'm not suited for either gymnastics (agreed) or long distance running.
As a result, it's been nice knowing all you running folks and I'm off to http://www.wwe.com.
