Great report, SJ - such exploits are beyond me; I tip my hat to you  . . . . .

Gerard, your situation is exactly the same as I (we (Mrs B & I)) faced 3 years or so ago, so the phrase "I know how you feel" is not a platitude. Although this is a running forum, and, with a couple of honourable exceptions, I've not had the pleasure of meeting forumites in real life, I did find the kind comments I received enormously helpful, so please keep training and posting; certainly no apologies required. 

Minni - fantastic effort after your recent travails - a report would be great
MsE too - come on, get posting !!

Top bombing, marrows, and good training block; pea-shelling of the highest order, OO.
Good early doors session, Gul - is Mable stil on the (prospective) table?

A rather warm 20 this morn - my running pal showed she is back in business after a childbirth/infant caring break by putting the boot in from 14 - 17 (where she peeled off), leaving my legs to jellify at around 18 miles; so a laborious last couple of miles ensued! Pretty dehydrated, must have had about 4 pints of squash so far  . . . .

Tks, Poacher - I'll take that as a compliment from the master . . . . . .
VTr - no, its fixed in the position portrayed - no pain, though. Nice victory, btw! 

12 miles today, inc 5 x 800m in park, then road efforts (4) of approx 3/4 mile apiece. Legs a bit mashed now.

I NEVER imagined I would ever post a pic of my extremities on an internet forum, but being as you asked so nicely, marrows  . . . . . .

Marrows - no!  You'll only encourage Poacher et al. I'll post a pic of my "Hallux Rigidus" if you lot don't behave ! 
Gerard - pleased you had a very good race on familiar streets, but also that you enjoyed the family time .
Jools - nice one ! As you say, hopefully a good indicator for Frankfurt. The disco lights and red carpet beckons . . . . .
Looking forward to the Coastal reports . . .
20.5 this morn - wet and sultry, thankfully no storms.

Sorry to hear that, Gerard; I hope things are resolved soon. Tks for asking - son 36:42; daughter 44:41 (well over two mins down on her PB, but she perked up at £45 voucher for 2nd senior female(3rd overall), which she immediately exchanged for a half-price pair of racer-trainers at the shoe stall)!
