Well done PMJ. Really nice to see you too. I totally agree about nurturing a PB but it all depends on the day...
I lost too much on the uphill start. I thought the other course around Hyde Park is a bit quicker. My first mile was 10 seconds below target and that set the tone of the rest of the race, finishing in 18:18.
I'm running the Assembly League 5k at Battersea Park next week, so hoping to beat my recent PB of 18:04.
Just building fitness now over the summer until I get the news on my ballot place at the London Marathon. Plan B is a place via the club.
Great to see so many of you running well at the moment.
Speedy - last autumn I was injured for about a month after a great summer. I lost a lot of speed when I came back to track and did alternate faster reps for a couple of weeks until I could keep up with the group. Looking back at my stats, my form came back after about 3 weeks. In short, it returned a lot quicker than i thought. You'll be back to form in time and I really hope you do well in Edinburgh.
