bufo -- nice one on the hill race (makes me wonder why I'm bothering to train so much for mine!), and amazing speed. Glad to hear finals went well, too -- good luck in the new job.
Lev_ -- I would be floored speed-wise doing that distance too. Will be very interesting to hear how your body adapts and how it all works out.
TR -- you know what they say: pride comes before a fall. So much for my pride in reducing the weight of my trainers!
selbs -- bad luck on the knee, but hope NZ goes well.
DrD -- I hate pointless present-buying so much that we ceased hostilities on that front years ago with my sister, Dad and Mrs (well she gets herself some modest Xmas items from Amazon). But if the Scrooge approach doesn't appeal, there's nothing like some new running socks to make you realise how clapped out the old ones are...
TT -- impressive stuff. Very sensible to "stick" rather than "twist" now you're ahead.
Dachs -- wow, excellent time, and you've beaten PP to sub-16 by a convincing margin!
Day off for me today; some bike errands to do anyway, and my legs are still a bit creaky from the weekend.
