SL.. all the best for the new arrival, and the Dorset Marathon. Aye, only time my nerve related niggle affects me now is sitting in a car/plane for over an hour but running is blissfully unaffected. Nice to be training niggle free again though I'm currently being overtaken by milk floats and steamrollers but work is in progress!
Ryan.. impressive mileage you're fitting in, I will look forward to seeing what comes out on race day.
4.2m + 10.3m double today either side of work, thankfully not as cold as the weekend.
Thought I would interrupt the tumbleweed to report a 16.4m MLR this morning. Started in cold but sunny conditions, ominous clouds towards the end but managed to get home 45 seconds before an icy downpour!
DanA.. back in the early 2000's the Dash had an 'area' contest.. North/South/South West etc. Each area tried to bring their best runners and it gradually became a showdown of the UK's best runners. Like the Manchester Marathon there is no influx of Africans so it is purely a British bust up. As it is an 'Age UK' charity run I would guess there isn't any bumper prize money. I see Martin Rees clocked 34.03 as an M60!
The course isn't particularly pretty (up Kirkstall Road, round a bollard then back down again to finish outside the Town Hall. Almost flat and therefore fast though. They didn't have a finish banner across the finish line towers this year probably due to the wind so that and the lack of a goody bag got the moaners out in force on social media!
