Simon, yes it is the Yelling podcast. I race at Bedford from time to time and see all the club records on the noticeboard and see how prominent Paula is to the point where the ladie's record is not very different to the men's record.
Gave blood yesterday, 6 gentle today, feeling OK for a day out at Wembley tomorrow.
Listening to marathon talk today and there was talk about 400m reps. John Walker (who ran sub-4 for the mile 135 times and is only second on the all time list behind Steve Scott with 136!) would do 8x400m in 51 seconds. He tells a tale of his last session before a big race and he did 49s for the first 2 and then stopped the session as he knew he was on fire and couldn't get any better and could only get worse.
Poacher, not good news on the tendonitis front. Seems to be the trend as daughter #1 just picked up a bit and has to take 2 weeks rest. As she is a PE teacher it is dubious how that works. She has, however, dropped track sessions and taking up full bore baking so I am looking forward to seeing her on Sunday.
mojo returned and, as VTR says, the sun was out and the tan is getting topped up. I always have a silly runners tan when I hit the surf in the summer so my face, arms and legs are brown and my torso is a sickly white. Luckily it is seldom warm enough to pause between the state of being fully clothed and in a full wetsuit.
Gul, Dartmoor looks like a hard marathon for your race one every weekend types. I recall that MartinnH or KR may have run the Leicester marathon which is the same day.
So it isn't necessarily wrong to start a sentence with a conjunction, or is it?
the 3 races is ... or the 3 races are ...
Have to admit 3 races are is a more natural syntax but if the 3 races are a collective then the singular is allowable, but also apparently more common in American than British English so I stand corrected. Neighbour, colour, centre, dialogue, faeces. Sorry, official spelling in our company is American English and I need to use the British varaints from time to time.
