TR -- for sure I'll be doing the 27 milers in my next VLM campaign. I was collared on the train on Sunday by a one-time 2:43 runner (as I was wearing a VLM T-shirt) who told me I should go up to 30M in training. Little did he expect that he was preaching to the converted.
LS21 -- tremendous! Well done on the perfectly-executed performance. The run wasn't bad, either...
No running today, but I did send off my second old-school postal entry in the last week, this time for a very low-key local half.
Stet -- well paced, probably hard to hit the target accurately given the mixed terrain and wind. Good luck with the spring campaign!
Ryan -- I remember reading that some of the Kenyans have a month off each year. (Whenever I do something like that, it's down to injury rather than planning...)
Nice to hear from you bufo. You might bump into Mo himself in Bushy Park, I understand. Surely Berlin has to be the one for ultimate speed -- though Frankfurt's cheer-leading indoor razamatazz finish is rather cool.
Jools -- hang in there! Carbo loading to look forward to, if you're doing it?
DrD -- that was 18 mins when you only had a 10 min pass, I hope your wife was rightly cross
Just a 5M plod with some bridge reps this morning, but in a new pair of Lunaracer+ 3s as my previous ones are wearing out. I've not yet cut them down to reduce weight, but that will come...
selbs -- I didn't make it to Regents Park until about 08:20. Early by the standards of the rest of the post-part household though!
Lev -- next for me is a 10M race on Sun, which is the Cambs county champs. Nothing booked after that until a New Year 10k -- really must get some more races booked in before they all fill up. Anyway, great race/training from you, I envy the breezy sub-55 after a week with that big session.
Nice training as ever, Padams. TT -- sounds like you're in good shape despite the injury hiccup (hiccough?).
Great run Dachs, that's still a fine time. Well raced too KD.
LS21 -- a triumph!!! Oh, and I promise to pop into your shop if we do another family holiday in Keswick...
TickTock -- sorry about the lurgy but sounds like you had a very satisfactory race despite it.
Dan -- I think I missed your result but obviously close to TickT somewhere.
ON7 -- ha, you conjured up a whole minute for free!
Just a short recovery plod to work for me, with extra rucksack load. Plan is to have a light/sharp latter part of the week in preparation for my 10M race.
selbs -- sounds like you're really on track now. Take it easy!
AlP -- wow! Awesome time (must be no more than a Rizzla between you and PP recently).
Ryan -- great run. I loved the track finish there.
TickTock -- sorry about the lurgy intervening, but sounds very pleasing nonetheless.
DrD -- oh no, the marshalling problem is agonising to read. But... congrats, that's an enormous PB despite the various tribulations! See you at the champs start.
JB -- another PB despite the windy conditions, nice one!
We were at a big bash with friends in London so I went to bed far too late and far too well oiled. Woke up with a headache and a dry mouth but, as usual, earlier than everyone else, so I ran 4M to Regents Park, did some fartlek for 12M, and ran back. Overall 7 min/M for 20M. But really I intended to do less distance and faster quality -- but my top speed just wasn't there, so my fartlek was rather feeble stuff and I thought I might as well top up on distance, as I want an easy end to the week with another race next weekend. Amazingly though, it did clear the hangover nicely.
