Gul - - "Longest run of the week this morning (younger daughter's birthday tomorrow). So 24"
was relieved to read the next line was "laps of field" - momentarily thought you'd knocked off a near mara in training . . . . .
As for your question - VLM was meant to be my swansong, but I now have the club V60 record (oh what straws we clutch at) a mere (!) 1 min 50 secs away . . . .
GD - fine relay work - tea & cake always a good reward !
OO - good return to faster running
MsE - I guess most on here would make interesting case studies . . . . .
naming no names (well ok, I'll name one or two) - -Blisters/Lorenzo/Poacher/BikeIt/madbark/SJ - all fit my criteria - going further than 26.2, disciplines involving water and/or machinery, strange costumes etc etc oh, and 24 laps of a field probably qualifies . . . .
(btw, SJ - bit too much info re nads . . . . )
anyway, 16.5 this morn - 12 warmup, parkrun, 1.5 trot home. Unlike OO, legs still tired (3 weeks still not long enough from VLM), so around 21:15 (official times not up yet) - 30 secs or so slower than pre VLM, and same pace (6:50 ish) as my March half mara. So, clearly not recovered yet, but a good morning's outing, with the 12 mile warmup in lovely sunshine with 4 chums - what could be better?
