330 - yeah its at Wimbledon common, its only its second year

Whats your long run at the moment 330? The only advice I could give regarding the holiday is to attempt to lay off the beer a bit. Vodka with tonic is a less bloaty option

JR - ooo so close! Yeah she is doing so well right now, im really proud Thanks, yeah you have 12 hours to run as many 6 mile loops as you can. You can do it in teams or solo.....you can guess which i went for

ooo not long JR!! Exciting stuff!!

Ive picked up a bit of a cold at the moment so no running for me which is obviously ideal just before my big one  oh well, same plan as always then I guess..........blag it!!

ah the ol` gang is back!!  

I am waaaaay behind in the thread! Its great to see so many people on here at the moment.

Nice 4 mile hilly beast last night with Mummysaurus, started in hail which turned to light rain then glorious sunshine all in the space of an hour. Mummysaurus is going great guns at the moment. Getting a 5k pb at the weekend and just getting some good consistent running in. A lot more than me at the moment ha ha ha.

Just 3 little weeks now till London Enduro and I can honestly say im really looking forward to it. I am spending a lot more time relaxing for this one as it was only 4 weeks since the London marathon double so I know I can blag a 50  Silly pie in the sky aim is.........drum roll please........100k....GULP! 

I will be over the moon to break 50 mile again, anything over would be a bonus. 

Keep smiling folks and ill catch up with you soon

ooooo dear im behind with the thread again!!!

Welcome aboard RusskiRob!

JaneyH - Yeah parkrun wasnt bad at all, I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to pace my sister quite easily. Just missed a PB for her though (26:32 I think) we came in 26:42. I really wasnt sure I would have the spring back in my legs but it seemed fine. Calf is a little tight but im going to give it a little slow run tonight to try and stretch it out.

330 - so happy you entered!!!

330 - unexpectedly good actually. Went for a slow 3.5 mile run/walk with mummysaurus and was very surprised at how springy I was. In fact im going to try and pace my sister to a PB at parkrun on saturday for her birthday...26 minutes I think? Not sure if ill be able to hold it but ill give it a go Really feel like I might be over the slump I have been in for a while.

Great work Robert! 20 minutes without stopping is a great barrier to push. Dont try it everytime just yet. Drop back a little for a week and then try for 21 the week after Take it a little at a time and focus on a strong foundation. It can be really frustrating but its worth it
