LMH -- yes, first run since VLM yesterday. Obviously recovering slower than Dan with that parkrun! I'll try again tomorrow...
Hey, my VLM result which was on powerof10 a day or two ago has disappeared. Can't seem to get to the overall results to notify them I'm there again, either -- it just times out. Most rum. Has an impostor claimed my result? Anyone else been disappeared from the list? (Edit: I'm still there in VLM's own results, but have bumped down an age category place with a suspiciously uncapitalised name now at the top -- maybe they're tinkering with the MV45s right now... though CD & CL still have the race listed in their profiles.)
Cakesy -- Padams is an example of a low-mileage guy with talent who gets great results (no pressure then, but go well in MK Padams!). Although I've been trying a high-mileage diet this time and it seems to have worked, I once did a 2:43 at Abingdon on an average 40 mpw -- though that did include one or two weeks of more like 60M or something, and one or two full-distance training runs.
Yesterday I was pretty cocky that my legs felt fully recovered; I couldn't have told you I'd run a marathon on them. So this morning I tried jogging 6M to work, and found they were not so recovered after all! Pretty creaky quads and in one calf. Still, cycling home, and I'll have tomorrow off.
Thanks for the list Dan -- so there are prizes, but only for the first 3 in each AG. No hope for me for sure!
Welcome too louisev -- you've obviously got huge running talent. You mention home life makes it hard to get out to train; we had some friends who found it really useful having a treadmill in their garage so they could train with the baby next to them. And of course other people train a lot with baby-joggers. No idea if you do either of those, or whether they'd be practical.
Ros P -- welcome, and wow! Whatever you're doing in your training, we want to hear about it Also I'd never seen any mention anywhere of individual vet prizes at VLM before (not that I'd be in contention, I was only 14th MV45) -- is there a list somewhere of what they dish out?
CD -- well done to junior -- I know it's tough just getting selected for the race. And water stations can be a real trouble-spot, can't they (even for the elites with plenty of open road).
Congrats too LMH, it sounds like you've made stratospheric strides.
