Yes getting some form back myself now thanks, after taking August off training thanks to arrival of baby boy, then attempting to train through a month or two of sleep deprivation, getting some form back by November then being ill in December and losing it again!
London Marathon is my 'A' race this year, second target to try and finish the HRRL at least as high as last year but without compromising the marathon training. Which means avoiding the temptation to race Eastleigh 10K!
Did Ryde 10 weekend before last - new course this year, still hilly as you'd expect, but windy this year too, had probably my best race over any distance judging by the people I beat who are normally ahead, and runbritain telling me it was my 'adjusted best' performance. Bodes well as that was just taking the Saturday off on top of the usual Friday rest day from marathon plan, and the week before had ended with my first 20miler of the campaign, so not exactly tapered!
