LMH.. good to hear you're still up for the VOY half, I think you will enjoy the course.
Charlie.. well done to your daughter, are you planning to stay at her digs or a luxury York Hotel?
Dachs.. some storming times there, good man. It always seems soggy underfoot when I'm climbing in the Lakes too!
LS21.. best of luck with getting to the bottom of your creaking problems. You still seem able to put in a decent training week which is encouraging.
Jools.. a solid week there and a decent long run today. I always feel a bit more excited when I've got an overseas marathon coming up, seems like a bit of a holiday in some respects.
Just over 18m for me today too, windy & warm up here so pleased to get it done.
Despite feeling somewhat weary after that I was duty bound to dig a deep enough hole in the garden this afternoon to accommodate our old cat who finally expired last night after 19 years approx. After that I have now decided that a couple of beers beckon later.
Bravo LMH, 7.15-7.20 pace for that sort of distance isn't too shabby - good enough for the podium?
RB.. honeymoon sounds fun, & good effort in the Clyde Stride despite the Al Fresco incidents
ES.. I suppose cramming in LR's & MLR's in a short space of time can result in the odd one feeling below par. Nicely done on getting them done anyway.
Hot, windy & dusty today so sought out the localish York - Selby bike trail which was sideways on to the wind and offered a bit of shade & shelter in parts. 16.2 miles all told giving me 60 miles this week for the first time in a while.
Good luck with the Berlin build up fellas. I first ran it in 2000 when the finish was on Kurfurstendamm. To be greeted by row upon row of massage beds in the finish area was a novelty for me, even more so seeing beer tables with umbrellas a little further in the distance. Happy days!
Hope the old body holds together LS21.
TT.. yeah, 8 weeks is loads of time.
Best of luck to LMH for the ultra this weekend - hope the taper isn't sending you mad!
Alan B.. that's still a cracking time for an inexperienced track runner, more to come next time.
PP.. my junior days were at Tynemouth (Cullercoats inland). Any candy floss about?
4.2m + 8m double today, enjoying this slightly cooler weather.
