Thanks GD and KR. I actually went to school on the Isle of Dogs but the area has changed so much. I'll be looking at flats with my daughter who wants to try and buy and Greenwich is on the list. Could be very handy for future VLM starts.
KR I also did a 10 and 12 in the last 2 days but each was a split shift, 2 runs per day. Yojr pace is quicker than mine though- good going.
Having a decent week in spite of the beer and curry. I am off to London this weekend and pretty excited about doings the Mile End parkrun with daughter number 1. We are staying in canary wharf so not sure where I'll do my long Sunday run.
18 for me this morning and 48 for the week. My 137th parkrun (134th at Whitley Bay) yesterday produced 19:15, which below par for me.
I'm building for a sub 3 hour VLM attempt Hilly- I've managed it the last 3 years but I'm not getting any younger and it may be a strech too far this time. 3 weeks into the campaign I'd say disappointed that my weekly mileage is a bit down on target. But on the other hand please with my LSR's. 3 in a row at 18 miles and all around 8 min avg. pace.
Badbark you are becoming a celebrity on Marathon Talk. But then I did appear on BBC North-East this week in a piece about GNR, as first man back to the ferry after the race- no prizes unfortunately.
