Great achievement, Lorenzo - I still can't contemplate any event where the reporter states "as I got to 65 miles I decided that more of a DBS approach was needed "  . .

Nice mile, Philip (that's easier to comprehend - although I guess there was at least a couple of minutes pain invovolved) !   

Normanby Hall 10K yesterday for me, in North Lincs, near to my daughter's base. Build up to this was an 11 day streak up to & inc Thurs of 81 miles, rest Fri, 6 easy on Sat. However, impromptu dinner invitation was issued late Sat afternoon, which was followed by drinks at friend's place.  Bed at 4:15am,  alarm set for 5:45, drive to daughter's, then on to venue !  

Felt a bit light-headed during my 10 mins warmup jog, and then bit odd in the first K, but adrenaline did its job and I just ran as hard as I could!  Went through halfway in 21:50 ( just 5 seconds slower than last week's parkrun), but faded 2nd half to finish in 45:02 gun time (44:58 on my watch).  In all honesty, I don't think the lack of sleep slowed me down that much - apart from a recent couple of parkruns, this was my first race effort of the year, so job done - and no reaction from the niggle issues of this year.  74% WAVa acceptable.

81st overall from 373 finishers.  No Vogit categories in results (just 1st male & female vet). The first running of the event; I was quite inpressed - pretty flat course, well organised, cake & bottle of water at the finish !

excellent parkrunning today - fast times all round, and good one with the young lad, PMJ . .

eagerly awaiting BB's news  . . .

Normanby Hall, Gul - just north of Scunthorpe.

Nice weight loss, Badbark - was this achieved by mileage alone burning the calories, or by diet adjustment also ?

Pleased you have a reasonably positive diagnosis,Gerard - 
I have a 10K a week on Sunday, but no concrete plans beyond that, yet  . . . .

15 done this morn, so on course for another 50 this week  .  .

Good parkrunning Lorenzo, Lz junior (congrats ), OO (podium), Badbark, Leslie

Sound start to Berlin campaign, GD  . . .

Rest here, but satisfying 50 for the week - only 2nd time this year made 50
