Abbers - don't be too disappointed with that performance - there were several factors not in your favour. Hope your 40th year has got off to a good start Minni - excellent racing - shame about the mix-up with the laps. Good job it wasn't your 'A' target race. Leslie - take care of your hip. Rich - good 22 miler. Birch - I've been doing far too much of my schedule according to Noakes then. Good MLR effort. Mennania - stonking MP run - looking very good. Badbark - doesn't look like they accepted Rich's email on your behalf And I see Rich has confirmed that. PMJ - recover well from Sunday. Ant - enjoy your 5 x 600m. I was a bit reckless with 14 miler this morning. 13 miles progressive, from plod to 5k pace (8:55, 8:32, 8:21, 8:20, 8:08, 7:52, 7:44, 7:30, 7:13, 6:50, 6:29, 6:13, 6:05) and 1M cool-down (8:28).
Some excellent running and racing this weekend. 6JT - good hilly long run. Jools - nice long run and weekly mileage. Leslie - cracking 10k and so close to sub 40. SB - good HM and pleased to hear you're sounding positive. PMJ - excellent effort - 17M @ MP is a good result. Lorenzo - congrats on a great HM - should fill you with confidence. OO - good pacing and a nice photo. Martin - cracking result and a very strong finish. Poacher - you're going to peak just at the right time Ant / AR / Moof - know what you mean about Jantastic. Last year I fell into the trap of keeping on for the sake of logging those runs instead of a taking a couple of days off and ended up paying for it in the long run. I suggested that to MT that they might want to re-think and not penalise people for doing the sensbile thing - maybe that's what promted the joker system this year. SB - nice hilly LSR. Good luck at Fleet - do you have a target/plan? Speedy - wow, that's a cracking weekend and a stonking week for you. GM - you'll soon be back in the swing of things. KR - that was so close - surely not an ideal course for a PB, so I'm sure it will come soon. Not sure what the new job will do for my running routine - need to sort out the finer details over the next couple of days, including a start date! I'm thinking a week today. 10 miles @ 8:36 m/m plus 10 subway slope sprints to start week 21.
Oh my goodness, it's almost sunbathing weather here this morning., Hope it's not like this where peeps are racing today. Good luck everyone! Badbark - can't they log your runs for you or allow you to nominate someone else to do it on your behalf?
Apologies for the flying visit this morning, but good luck to everyone racing this weekend - should be a good one! 20 miles for me - first 10 slow (8:34 m/m) and second 10 easy (7:49 m/m). Glad to get through this week unscathed after a bit of a scare at the beginning. Also very pleased to report that I shall shortly be employed once more. Back in IT after all, looking after data security for a company handling NHS data.
Ant - hope the recovery is complete and you're ready to rock'n'roll soon. GM - welcome back. KR - sounds like you're coming back strong. Mennania - good reps and MLR. 6JT - nice early morning hill reps - not sure about the puking. SJ - good 10k efforts. Leslie - chugging along nicely. BOTF - hope the stomach settles down. Poacher - yes, spring seems to have arrived early. Daffs out and birds nesting over here. 12 more plodtastic miles @ 8:50 m/m d&d. Pleased to report NO stops this morning.
