Better than dining out on Pick and Mix Matt 

That is indeed a great team result Lit!

Dean - sounds like a pretty rough couple of weeks mate!

Thanks for the comments about the leg guys. Rested it for two days, then a double today. Nothing really decisive - still there, but at a low level. I'm bored with it now (I bet you lot are too ).

Anyone doing the Handy Cross XC this Sunday?

Matt - what are you like! Top quality 10 miler (at just under my PB pace!) and then injure yourself in a cider fueled sofa incident  Mind you, doing a hilly 15miler straight after a full English is good ultra training!

Andrew - very good result that! Nice one...

Philip - hey ho, can't monster them all (as a former parishioner of this thread might have said!). Hope the niggle eases off quickly - you doing HX XC next Sunday then?

Glad I didn't race today. Did an 8M road run (swim?!) which was intended to be a bit of a progression job. Managed to get some reasonable effort miles in, including a quality hill, but the leg was becoming sore again, and felt as bad as a few weeks ago by the end - bit depressing really, as I thought I'd turned a corner. It seems 2 back to back 50M weeks was pushing too hard, but I thought I'd built back up sensibly (for me). Fingers crossed it's only a minor set back. We'll see I guess...

Good to get some proper pre-race hydration Iron . Should have got a bike ride in myself today, but.....

Not sure I'm going to be there tomorrow - will make a judgement call first thing. I'll try not to let the peeing down rain influence that decision!

Good luck everyone who is racing!

Lit - I presume you mean "most achievable" rather than "easiest"?!

Nah, you just start running when the gun goes off and don't stop till you get halfway up the Mall.

Makes it bloody hard work when you're running Abingdon though!

Interesting approach for next year Dachs - sounds like a good plan for a fruitful year!

Double for me today, with the run home through the woods one of those unpleasant jobs where the head-torch light bounces back off the mist so I end up finding all the deepest mud and losing the path! Hence 55 mins for 5.8M! Still, the thought of chips and beer at home got me through!

Johnas - you are an exemplar of how we should deal with injuries! Patience and long-term thinking seem to be both sadly missing from my vocabulary

Very glad to hear you are well on the way to getting back up to regular training.

When the lottery started, I used to choose my numbers based on a nice symmetrical pattern on the sheet (OCD again!). When they changed the entry forms (about 2o years ago!), I couldn't do a pattern so gave up!

Microscopically small chance of a massive amount rather than just a large amount then

Phew Matt - tough session!

No Andrew, Philip doesn't give out lottery numbers - not unless or until there is a scientifically proven sequence of algorithms that could be used to give a reliable and predictable result anyway

You can run, but you can't hide (from Philip)

Welcome Andrew! Even a gradually increasing distance behind Dachs suggest you are pretty quick 

Andy Reading 10k is very flat. Part of it is on an airfield, which is very exposed and if there is any wind it can be an issue. Unfortunately there's no EOD, so a bit of a gamble on the weather! There are also a couple of sharp, greasy turns getting on and off the airfield itself which add a few seconds, but overall it can be pretty quick.

Did what passes for an LSR these days at lunch - 11M easy paced mud and hills. I had no speed in the legs at all, and the leg was playing up a bit for the last few miles, so might think twice about racing Sunday. If I do though, I'll bring a big sandwich box!

Very true. My best race results were both in 10 milers that I didn't know I was doing until the last minute.

Either way Stevie - still a pretty good result! That said, I can understand why you'd have prefered it the other way round and got another sub 36 under your belt!

"Second and last mara" Simon? I've heard that before
