I haven't been on here in ages, but literally just saw the marathon results from the weekend. Wow, what an improvement from an already outstanding level!

Good luck frankfurters!

First xc of the season at Burnley. Slow but legs felt good. Need to pull my finger out and run some miles!

Great write up TT. It's so annoying when elite Ethiopians draft off you

HR - It was MP pace (based on 4 months ago), bur definitely 5m effort!

SL - Fantastic result.

Anyone see Lemoncello's treadmill half marathon for charity this weekend? It was a new world record of 1:07:29. I hope he wiped down the machine for the next user.

TT - Congrats. Nice to see you move into sub-2.30 territory. Well deserved.

Postie - Well done on the PB despite the dramatic finish.

HR - Good solid marathon after a non textbook build up.

MrB - Good effort. I'm sure there's more to come another day after better preparation.

Dachs - Great report. I think when you're that close to a significant time you can claim the moral victory and plan to smash it in your next attempt.

MtR - Well done on completing it! Hope you manage to rediscover your running mojo (should you wish to!)

DanA - Enjoy the break!

All the best to the Frankfurters. Have a calm and relaxing week!

Green Drive 5 for me yesterday which was my first race since June but ended up looking like an MP run in 30:44. Happy enough to have got some quicker running done though.

Big read back as not been on all week.

Well done Padams. Superb effort at Kona.

Good luck to TT in Amsterdam and Everyone Else at Abingdon this weekend. Looking forward to the reports!

RS - Those photos are stunning. Langdale's my favourite place in the Lakes so lots of familiar scenes there (including getting stuck in that bog above Black Crags). I've done a few road races round there but not ventured into fell running ... yet.

5m road race for me this weekend before XC starts next weekend. I've not attempted any quick running since June so should be fun!

Just backspaced my way to deleting an entire post 

Wardi - Happy belated Birthday

Dachs - Great parkrun/10k double

CW - Nice win. With that kind of publicity you'll have LD on your case in no time.

DanA - Shocking behaviour! Didin't he realise there's no prizes up for grabs?

SJ - Unlucky on the marathon withdrawal. Hope you recover quick and can use the fitness for something else.

Selbs - All the best with the back.

Lev - Nice detailed report! Sounds like there's more to come so good luck recovering for Frankfurt.

Enjoy the taper everyone else!

Minor setback this week for me as my modest mileage increases triggered shin pains usually experienced when doing multiple high mileage weeks. Backed off and did 17m instead of the planned 40m for the week. I think slow and steady progress is required!

TR - I suspect Richard36 was the mischievous creation of a regular to ensure the 100000th post was claimed by a Jonny one post.

Lev - Well done on a cracking PB

Mr B - I've made that mistake before but fortunately noticed about 6 weeks out so could adjust accordingly.

September Stats

Miles: 61

Pace: Probably averaged around 7:45

Rest Days: 20

32m last week, 40 planned for this week. I'm aiming to get back up to 50-ish per week before I worry about attempting anything quick. My club's 5m race (the Green Drive Five for anyone in the north) is coming up in a couple of weeks so that should be an interesting test.
