Pops head up to say a massive well done TT, great run  

Some of you are doing great training/racing. I'm trying to follow what you guys are up to but it is hard!

Life has been too full-on to do much running and I've had a couple of niggles. Ran only 8 times in June, so you get the idea. Did my first ever Parkrun yesterday and managed to get around in 16:40....but much more pleased to see middle-Coro run 22 min (he is 11). 

As some of you may have guessed the last 3.5 months of my life has be dominated by a missing plane. It has included trips to Malaysia, Australia and CNN interviews etc...but generally a lot of work and a fair bit of stress. Should ease off now; I now need to get ready for our next satellite launch later this year. I have a meeting in Cannes this week, so might try to fit in a few miles along the Mediterranean.

Lev - great run....you were right to go with that group, good call. You beat me on time and overtaking...I managed to pass 42 and be passed by 0.

Some wonderful performances, so well done  

That lad I ran with in 2008 has done well for himself....I was smiling ear to ear when I watched the BBC coverage just now. 2:16 with a 50M run the two weeks before really does rewrite the text book!

Happy with my run all things considering. 2:35:57 of very little training (and a lot of stress recently) will do fine. 40 sec +ve split means a sensible run.

Enjoy the recovery. So many people should be really pleased your performance. Sorry I didn't make the Red Lion, I had to go and pick up middle Coro from his athletics event in St Albans.

I did the expo in under 5 min...probably helped by leaving my wallet on my desk at work my mistake!

Had to take some folks from the European Space Agency to dinner last night...watching them eat all those carbs whilst I had a small steak and fresh greens was hard work.

See some of you in the tent and then the Red Lion. My daughter turns 18 tomorrow...she wants to buy me my first pint on Sunday

PP - I'll look forward to it I can confirm that I was close behind you at halfway last year

CD - my slowest London time since 2008 is 2:35...I'll correct that this year I ran a lot of the 2008 race with someone who went on to bigger (and much faster) things...happy days.

Here comes a Johnny one-post...

Great to see taper madness in full swing (weather, carbs, -ve splits, expo)...anyone would think that we're a week away from VLM. Lots of you have done some serious training, good for you....I firmly believe that you get out what you put in. My only bit of advice on pacing is that you should be able to exchange a few words with those you are running with up to about 16-17M, if you can't then you've gone off too fast so slow down a bit.

I'm planning to make the start line on 13/4...I wants to keep my 8 year London sequence going + raising some money of a very good cause. My training never got going this year and the last 4 weeks have been particularly intense with non running stuff (one day I may write a book about it)....but the short of it is that my run will probably be slow and somewhat painful, but in the grand scheme of things that isn't too important.

Padams - sorry to hear about your dog

DanA - so sorry to hear, so so frustrating for you. Give yourself a bit of time (even have a beer) and then regroup - get yourself a marathon time your talent and dedication to the cause deserves. You'll still have a huge amount of fitness.

Obviously it is horses for courses, but I agree 245 is quite a bit softer than 75. I've always found HM quite tough, it is neither a speed-fest nor a full-on endurance event. A bit like TT (but not as good), my conversion has always been ok at x2 + 6 to 7 min.

Padams - I agree, your 68:xx (IIRC) at Reading meant you were in sub225 shape. I hope you get an opportunity to get a marathon time consistent with your talent and training dedication

Some really fab running at the weekend....great to see people getting significant PBs

HR - amazing run considering

Padams - very nicely done indeed

So lack of training catches up with me (TR - I've done less miles than you this year)....slowest HR since 2008 at Reading today, finished 76:05. Never felt good and was sweating heavily at mile 2 which is very usual for me. Wind was a pain, but you get out what you've put in and I've put very little in so can't complain. It was only my 3rd race in 22 months, so probably forgotten how to get my race head on.
