Leslie - Great LSR, especially feeling stronger the further you got into it.
Abbers - I have to admit that cricket is way down the list of my sporting preferences, but your quad holding out despite your full 10 over allocation sounds impressive! Keep it steady on the mileage increases and all should be well.
Slokey - Excellent blog post about your tri build up and race day. Most inspirational.
TAR - New bike - lovely! 33 miles is nice going for your maiden voyage.
Rennur - Hope the hip is just a niggle.
Gul - A haircut is also part of my training for today - ha.
7.1 yesterday with 12x400 (90 secs recovery) and more early morning biking today.
Minni & MsE - Great stuff on the Thunder Run and cracking podium photo.
Minni - I've not really got much to add to the eating and drinking advice, but learning through trial and error is about right. Many years ago, I kept my going on long alpine mountaineering/climbing missions (often 20 hours+) with cheese and jam sandwiches, cut into quarters. I'd put a few in each of my pockets (jacket, rucsac, salopettes) to munch when there was chance. Not sure how well they'd work at the Thunder Run though!
Marrows - Have you ever tried 1200, 1000, 800, 600, 400, 200 (with 200 jog recovery) and running each rep at a faster pace than the last?
VT - Nice mileage and planning cycle
Gerard - I am sorry to hear of your situation. Putting it out on the forum is a brave thing to do. Running is your constant so I hope that you continue to find solace in it
