Sorry to read that PP. I saw you as near the end and assumed you'd finished decently, so it was disappointing to see your name missing in the results. Enjoy the break, hopefully that and the doc get it sorted.
i havent taken the time to look at the book. i note others commentary of grammer, spelling and the like but come on.
Spelling and grammar errors on forums, facebook etc. are irritating but ultimately no more than that. In a book that he's trying to sell, it's fair game. He could (should) take it constructively: his book would sell more if he knew that apostrophes exist at all, or that sentences need a bit more construction that just random phrases separated by commas.
Fair play for actually making the effort, but it needs work, to say the least.
I'll echo what others have said about the race reports from Jools & Lev, worth reading.
I eased back into things with the small matter of the Richmond Half this morning. Managed a quick chat with PP on the start line, but didn't see much of him after that. I found myself in a small group after a mile or so, with PP in another disappearing up the road, shedding over-enthusiastic starters as they went. Everything was purring along nicely for the first 5 miles: we were down to three of us by then, but I lost touch when the course jigged about going under Kingston bridge and I was on my own from that point.
The engine was fine, but the transmission wasn't in a good state - I was stuck in 3rd gear, what seemed like 5:40s was 6:00s, going OK but without the extra turn of speed needed. It stayed like that for the final few miles and I came home in 1:18:28, 11th place, 3rd vet, not too shabby even if that was slower than my first half last week. Now for some proper rest!
