SBD nice paces, you are going very well. Nice runs too GD, GM. Look after it Leslie.
BB - good plan, cards on the table.
Might put a treadie in the garden and challenge OO, the only way I will ever beat him in a smackdown is if he is a DNS.
Minor #gymfail tonight, when the lad on the adjacent cycling machine started to sweat a bit it appeared that he had eaten several tonnes of raw garlic sometime in the last 24hrs. An absolutely overpowering pong, I like garlic but this was not far off being a weapon of mass destruction. 6m treadie + 50min bike D&D.
New #gymfail - fella on the treadie in a nylon windproof running jacket zipped up to the top with the hood up and the cord tied so tight under his chin that he could hardly breathe let alone see out of it. 35 degrees outside and pretty hot/fetid inside. A bit pongy TBH. Why?
Look after that knee/ham Leslie
6m done, listening to Gardeners' Question Time which is surprisingly entertaining and recommended if you enjoy, well, gardening.
Lorenzo - nice work, it really is a race of two halves and the flat canal bit is deceptively tough esp. after it turns east to head for Little Venice. Sounds like you indeed overcooked the first bit but that improvement in time is a cracking effort. I still think it's a road shoes course though. Now, since we will all be rooting for your sub3 campaign, forget ultras for a while and concentrate on doing what you need to do.
Still an impressive comeback campaign by SBD
Apologies to anyone I've missed, dodgy web access here and it was back to the tedious sweaty treadmill today, with a disappointing lack of #gymfails. 6m running + 40min fairly intense on the upright bike thing which has a really, really uncomfortable saddle. Several weeks of indoor training ahead
Take care all - don't burn out out or wear down the immune system this early in the campaign
