Congratulations again to Jonny i think i'm more impressed having read your report, that really is a strong debut especially given your not particularly high mileage.
Track session for me tonight 20x400m with 1 minute recovery, I hate 400m it's just too short. Have a 5 mile race on bank holiday Monday & am frustrated that i got lazy after Wokingham half & return from honeymooon, I haven't given myself long enough to get back into shape, will be more like June by the time I hit form (hopefully).
Having told myself I would wait for VLM 14 to return to the marathon (a 2 year break), I am becoming increasing tempted by an Autumn effort. Your tales of glory are inspiring & a good 10K just doesn't give me the same buzz.
SB: To echo what Mr B said it certainly sounds as though you have sub 3 well within you. If your not used to doing speedwork then joining a club will certainly benefit you & if you just keep the miles up from now on then come your next marathon campaign you will be a better runner heading into it.
