Superb pulling from the bag there Poacher! Interesting feedback on York as it was one I was contemplating but probably won't now. I was at university there and thought it might be a nice way to revisit old ground but it sounds like it might be frustrating and COLD as it is wont to be oop north.
Rennur - my team ran there at the weekend and it sounds like a nice rolling route. Great running despite your lack of miles. Onwards and upwards!
PMJ - still in the 80% with your 10 mile pace which is incredibly impressive! I have yet to get there and am still at 79% (annoyingly) on my times.
VTr - WOOOOOO HOOOOOOOO! And what a decisive negative split you ran. I bet it felt good? I look forward to the race when I can say I didn't go out too fast and felt good up to the finish line. I haven't done that since my very first HM!
Off to Portugal for a few days of warm weather training along the coast. Well, playing with the kids in the pool, but I will be trying to fit in the remainder of my runs and then back home for the weekend when I shall be willing Jools onto a sub-2:55 this weekend as I think she has it in her.
Belatedly but needed nonetheless - well done to Gul and Birch. Both sterling efforts and you should be very proud of those times. The best bit is you are both in one piece to capitalise on the fitness for the next cycle of marathon training!
