Birch - commiserations. Hope you're not too disappointed after Wembley yesterday. My legs feel fine thanks. Even for a day or two after WP, I only really noticed any muscle soreness going downstairs and it was very mild. Badbark - that is really just astounding. Well done on yet another sub 3. Hope the knee is still okay. OO - nice mileage. Bike It - sorry to hear you suffered at the end there, but well done on toughing it out. It's a massive achievement under any circumstances, but that must have taken such determination. Hats off. Lorenzo - sounds like you're going to have great fun. Went out yesterday afternoon for an easy 3 miles to see how I got on running with a rucksack. It was fine while it was empty, but on the way home after buying a box of fish, blood and bone plant feed it did rock from side to side and sent my heart rate up a bit! Just did another 5 miles this morning, including a max heart rate test that only got up to 185.
Fishy - all the best for the race tomorrow. Poacher - how did the Luxembourgh HM go? Bike It - pleased to hear the leg has improved. Hoping it holds up and you can give it your best shot today. OO - Fast parkrun! Lesle - nice early run. GD - that's not too tortoise like for a slow run! Badbark - good warm-up for the marathon - all the best. JT - good to hear things are progressing nicely. Lorenzo - nice hilly run before your holiday. PMJ - good parkrun. Another slow run today. 10 miles @ 9:11 m/m (again!). Avg HR 134.
Poacher - 2nd Oct isn't good for me (niece's 21st!), and if it were I would be tempted to return to Mablethorpe. My preferred alternative to Abingdon is Leicester. Birch - take care now. Jools - nice pacing for a great 3k. Abbers - excellent progress for a sub 20. SJ - you have certainly earned a rest! Bike It - really sorry to hear of your woes. You've worked really hard for this, so I hope the injection and pills can work their magic. Lorenzo - enjoy your running! Sorry, I meant holiday. First run post WP this morning. 6 miles @ 9:11 m/m. Even dusted the HRM down and registered an average of 133 bpm. Felt really good.
OO - I had an email from am too and it said there are over 180 on the waiting list. Poacher - no, the question of GFA for VLM doesn't arise at all from last w/e! Leslie - good work there. Bikes? I know nothing.
GD - another nice lunchtime run, Sir. Poacher - yes, I hadn't forgotten about Luxembourg, but thought it would be rude to mention it before you! You are just one crazy kind of guy Mrs GD will be envious when I mention that you were at Chelsea yesterday, although she knows in reality she wouldn't enjoy it because of the crowds. GM - thanks for reminding me why I won't ever be crossing over to the dark side! It seems unlikely that White Peak will be appearing on Power of 10. Previous years are not on there. Although the results have not been officially confirmed according to Matlock AC website. Would VLM still accept a sub 3:20 for a GFA entry? How ironic that would have been to get sub 3:20 and for it not to be recognised! However, I have checked my previous PB and it was 3:30:46; so even gun time gives me a 21 second PB
