Cabbage patch 4 for me today, which turned out to be lightly short  - 3.94 by Garmin.

and you wrote it on PO10 yourself...not to get picky

Oops - forgot that bit  As for the Garmin measurement, remember what I said the other day about accuracy . Impressed you found that post again, or do you save them somewhere special 

I have a vague recollection that back in the day when 7 mile was still ranked on Po10 there were 4 or 5 separate events, but no way of finding out now...

8M is at least an even number Lit....

Bloody impressive Aley, but excluded under Dean's rules

Cross post Dean - 7M is one of the classic distances

SG - you forget my Cabbage Patch 4 on Boxing day Last year  - 22:54 and on Po10 

Ric, stuffing a pair of plums in your mouth is always going to give you problems...

In several age groups!

Andrew - sorry, thought it was just a better TT bike rather than a switch from a road bike to a TT bike. Either way, with such a big investment you will inevitably work harder to make it worth it

It' got to be a round number to count SG

Hey Dean, nice table - but you've missed the 7M PB

Please don't Lit - I get enough of those at home....

Nice racing Scott - despite your thoughts on the second half.

Will a fancy bike make that much difference Andrew? 24mph is pretty quick!

I got an email from Strava yesterday saying "Uh oh, you just lost your CR on Thame Road to Bourg Walk Bridge to Ian Kimpton!". One of the dangers of sharing a town with a top quality runner of course, and his pace of 5:56 on this short segment (that I didn't even know I had the previous CR on anyway!) suggested that a) he was merely cruising , but b) it wasn't beyond my reach to reclaim it! 

So, one pointless and somewhat childish plan hatched and at lunchtime today I did a 5M progression run with this segment handily falling toward the end. I will have to wait until I upload the GPS to be sure, but if I've got the start and finish point right I will have taken the CR back. Obviously, Simon's mate Mr K can go out anytime and beat my time well into submission whilst smoking a cigar and wearing a pair of spats, but I will get a certain satisfaction in the knowledge of him receiving an email saying "Uh oh, you just lost your CR on Thame Road to Bourg Walk Bridge to Dave Roberts!" . It's the little things in life that count

3 or 4 pounds of plums a day Ric? Bloody hell, I'm surprised that didn't turn you inside out

very nice session Dean!

Double for me today. OK am, but sluggish tonight. Possible bike tomorrow, but no run. Now I need to decide whether to do a longish run Sunday or if I'm going to go to Battersea for an attempt at a decent 5k Monday night....decisions, decisions!

Come friendly Dachs and fall on Slough...

Good racing, and even more enjoyable (for me!) reports chaps! Sounds like a good evening out for the forum whatever the results and all of your times are bloody quick given the heat! All those rules and regs and etiquette don't make track an attractive option for me somehow....

I've got some track spikes SG. I've never worn them, but as they were only £10 I thought, why not? Cheap as chips!

Interesting discussion about dehydration. Yes, I agree it's crucial to get it right, especially in hot weather, but you can go too far. At least 14 athletes have died from hyponatremia:

When I went to the track yesterday I had to go through the gym - air conditioned. I went to have a drink from the fountain and waited while a woman filled her 750ml water bottle to the brim. When I went back through, 25 mins later, she was back there refilling, before going back to her machine. 1.5L of water for a session in an air conditioned gym seems a little excessive!

Bus, tidy enough reps. Though treating yourself to that long break mid way

Believe me SG, that 2 min break was definitely needed today!

Sorry forgot to wish you and Phil luck earlier, so hope it went well - still bloody warm though!

Andrew - thanks. Sounds a bit of a certainty for Sunday ?! Best of luck!

Good race anyway Dean, and spot on analysis by the sound of it Ric.

Luckily for me I never ran in until my mid 30s so there is no younger me to be chasing PBs against!

Happy birthday for yesterday Simon

Picked a warm day for track work today! As a result I did 400s and just a few of them as part of a 10k. 2x3 off 200m jog and 2 mins between. 1:22, 1:20, 1:19, 1:18, 1:19, 1:19. OK in the circumstances
