Max - do you work for the Llandudno tourist board 

Rob - can't imagine they are all staying for a week!

Hey, ho, we've found somewhere now - just had to bite the bullet and pay nearly double our budget . Looks like a nice place, though no internet access (whihc at least means work won't be able to hassle me!)

Matt - yours may not be the same issue, but my knee issues were sorted very quickly by doing squats before and after each run to force the kneecap to track properly. Key is for them to be very controlled, done in a motion like sitting in a chair slowly, keeping the knee almost straight and not moving it past the big toe. I do 20 reps.  

As for my own ongoing saga, I may have turned a corner. I ran Tuesday, whihc was a bit uncomfortable, but not too bad. Then Tuesday I did a double to work and back (don't ask!) and both times it was completely fine, with no pain afterwards. Bike yesterday, but will try a run at lunchtime today. Just in time for my holiday...but therein lies another story!

We were supposed to be going to the lakes. Being tight, I was waiting for a last minute bargain cottage, but every bloody cottage in the lakes is full and seemingly so is our fallback of Snowdonia! Getting very stressed now as we're supposed to be going tomorrow and have nowhere to go!

Nice one Lev - great time! You can stick my long sleeved top in the post . So much better with London Pride on the sleeve than the nasty Fosters one I got!

Hey Dachs - just noticed, it's no longer a white wash in the head to head with Alexander Miller

Some great results from Abo - must have been hard in that wind today, especially for 21 miles solo Dr D. I guess when you were going through the marshals hadn't had a chance to warm to the occasion yet . Bloody impressive PB though, as with the others on a hard day!

Well done Iron - sounds like a grand, but confused day out yesterday! Good to see the Achilles issue seems to be OK.

Dean - when you can't run fast anymore, have you thought of a career in panto . Well done on the record for your mate BTW. 1:20:39 with those antics is taking the mick 

Dachs/Matt - I know you are both somewhat disappointed by your times today, which I suppose, by your standards probably count as a little down. That said, you need to remember they are still bloody impressive times!! Having a bad day and coming out with a 55 min 10 miler or a 27 min 5 is a pretty reasonable base to be disappointed from!

Stevie - that's one helluva week to be finishing of with a tempo at the end of an LSR!

I did a 9M xc this morning. My longest run for 6 weeks to make a MASSIVE 33 for the week! Reasonable pace for the terrain, and no pain at all for the first 5 miles, though uncomfortable from 5-7. oddly the last 2 eased up a bit.  Bit sore after, but nothing too bad. Added in quick 14 miler on the road bike this evening, just so I could justify the big roast dinner after

Blimey PP - that's a most impressively bike stacked holiday!

Good luck to all the Abo-ers, Cabbage Patch-ers and anyone else racing tomorrow (but WTF? Why are you up reading this - go to bed )

Nice racing Stevie, and well done for the team podium prize. Just slightly Philip like, taking a look at Rob Downs Po10 profile shows amazing temporal consistency! Even though I will never get anywhere near his times, if I can hold my own ones as he's done I'll be happy!
