Steve - many thanks indeed. 19:39 was a surprise to me too, but that's mainly because my watch said 19:38!
That would never have happened if Rob had been race director
Wow, that is an amazing haul at the Masters. Clare is on fire. Another 6 seconds off an already brilliant time is just outstanding. You must be very pleased!
Sean - yeah very happy thanks. I'll have a think about the North Downs 30K. After Paris I'll need to sit down and see where I want to go from there.
The Concept 2 is a vom machine - a modern day torture device
SupermanRuns - ha ha, many thanks but I don't think it's a look I can pull off. I think you should stay as custodian of the cape
Did you get out yesterday or are you out today?
Rob - ah, shame you couldn't make it.
I'm not going to make any official complaints about the 1 second that seems to have been added to my time (not least because it could have been my own error)
Great course there. I really like the 3 laps and the fact that it's on a hard surface. Orpington will be nicer when the ground hardens but at the moment it's too muddy.
Minni - I'm still sulking after the victory that never was today, France were awful and there for the taking. Can't believe we lost
Lou - really sorry you're not able to enjoy the build up to Paris. How is the injury rehab going? Are you still planning to go to Paris?
It'll be great to see yin at Spitfire!
chickadeee - I never thought I'd be able to run that quickly. Quite shocked myself!
Great to hear you had a nice bike ride!
Mr P - Ha Ha, many thanks!
Jen - cheers muchly! It was a much easier course than LLO!
Rob - thanks, were you there? I didn't see you. I ran with Olla (not sure I got the right spelling) and a couple of the other guys form Dulwich Runners. They were a great help!
Minni - curling is awesome! I bet you watched it all at Sochi?
Isabel - how's the carb loading going? The first time I did it I found it hard going but it was well worth it for the benefits you feel on the run.
I think we'd all be surprised if you weren't a little bit nervous. That's not a bad thing but don't worry, there is nothing to be concerned about.
Once you have this one under your belt you'll know what it feels like to reach that 20 mile marker. Should be a big confidence booster knowing that you've come within 6 miles of the marathon distance.
Best of luck!
