LS21.. that must be an old PC you used as an emergency, I'm on a Windows OAP computer system here, it's got it's own castors. Fantastic report and a belting time fella, hope you settle happily into Lake District life when the time comes. BTW Marders' hairdo is half way between the very short cut I saw at VLM and the Nickleback roadie style you mention. With his racing headband it's more 'Fame' era I suppose. Better than that 'Rhythm is a Dancer' song anyway.
Dr Dave.. good to see you still buzzing. Relating to the 'rest a bit' messages there is an elite American girl (2:30 standard) who trains hard for the big day. Interviewed in the P&D book she says.. 'the next day after a marathon some people go out for a 10m run; I'm out for a 10 day party'. Eat doughnuts & drink beer this week, you've earned it fella.
Nicely run Stet and congrats on the qualifying time.
Jools.. if I remember you were a bundle of nerves before Frankfurt last year, didn't affect your performance too much as I recall..
4m + 7m today, not much fun in the wind but good to get it done. Entering a marathon last week seems to have got me doing doubles again.
Great run for 2nd Al P, & congrats on the PB along with TJB (full on effort duly noted!)
Dr Dave.. nicely done on the PB too, sorry to hear about the marshalling. When me & a mate were lead cyclists at a local 10k he went off with the leading group & I dropped back to 5th-10th as there was a significant gap. Seems obvious to me that if you are going to lose a runner it is where the gaps are. Nice consolation on that big PB & a champs start though!
Ryan.. well done on a 'close & a cigar' sub 2:45.
Tick Tock.. 2:58 with a cold is very commendable, sterling stuff!
Still a cracking run in the conditions Dan A, all the best for the Florence build up.
Lev.. right on time at Cabbage Patch, good confidence booster!
Charlie.. a well ground out 20m after a heavy night!
Dids.. frustrated by the Yorks Mara coverage. Typical celebrity-led fare, they spent a disproportionate amount of time interviewing/featuring an enormous rugby player whilst Race Jase didn't get an interview at the end despite being 1st Yorkshireman. He fared better on local news which may be some consolation!
11.5 today giving me just over 50m for the week, base mileage coming along ok.
