Has she tried performance-enhancing drugs?

Back from hols to find that jools has knocked out another sub 3, with pacing to die for.  Nice one.  And a casual sub 2:30 from TT, with another win from padams.  Some things don't change in here, but inspirational nonetheless.

I was going to start thinking about lengthening runs again in preparation for the next marathon campaign, but reading selbs posts has taken most of the afternoon.  Hols did include my first overseas parkrun, Clermont Waterfront which is a great setting even though the course is a basic up and down the side of the lake.  Aside from 'wayda go' replacing 'jolly well run sir' it was the same parkrun vibe.  Recommended, and a great change from theme parks and shopping.

Running tips from Steve Way :)

Well, the original quote that Millsy used was "Anybody willing to put in some consistent training can get to a decent level no matter their genetic ability", without defining what's meant by a decent level.  I would assume that's left to the individual, rather than taking it to mean that anyone can run like Steve with some hard work.

They should do it in the London Marathon.

And no sponsorship money unless they finish.

The guy who wrote the article led the London Marathon off the start one year with a Go-Pro - it's on Youtube.  So he knows all about crazy pacing.

Great stuff RJ, marders and Mrs PP.  And selbs.  And probably CW too, but the website is broken.

PP, I would challenge anyone not to stop for photos on their first ride down there.

Blimey, at the odd angle of my laptop screen, I thought someone had started posting knob pictures again.  Which made the '3 week old blister' comment all the more worrying.

KD - they'll stream kona on, race starts 5:25 pm UK time on Saturday so it'll be a late night if you stay to the finish.

It's easy to make bold statements but does he have a plan for achieving it? Sounds like headline grabbing to me.

These plain simple moves are all very easy to achieve, so I would say they are hardly headline grabbing

So how would you stop anyone who was HIV positive coming into the country?  test everyone at the airport?  And what's a valuable skill?  Anything that British people aren't prepared to do in sufficient numbers?  Lots of those don't require a lot of skill, just hard work for not a lot of pay.
