I read about CW's PB over on Facebook, so just wanted to say congratulations over here on the fred where it matters - fab run, your crazy training regimes are an inspiration, they seem to work! So you're going to the V45 England vests they are giving out next year (you're the fastest so far)? I'll be joining this age group in a few weeks and was tempted to give it a go by running Brighton 

Padams - congratulations to both of you on mini-Padams, fabulous (old) news (you can see how often I catch-up here!). Life changing in a good way! I will be wearing a Striders vest (2nd claim) on Sat for XC. Middle Coro is running U15 so made sense to do the same races....will be a slightly odd.

LS21, RB, njord - that must have such a fab run Smiles all the way!

Padams - we'll done on the mid-week race, great time for that course

London2Brighton 100km for me yesterday. Great race and so well organised, but boy was it hard work. Lots of hills (3,800ft) including some big ones in last 10km and I've seen enough stiles to last a lifetime (about 50). I found the technical trail sections through dense woods and ploughed fields quite energy sapping. My training partner had to drop out at 56km, so it required some concentration after this point. Anyway, finished in 9:10, got the win (2nd place was 55min behind) and set the course record. Great support from my family at the rest stops. Woke at 4am this morning dehydrated, hungry and sore! It is going to take me a few days to recover after this one

wow, some super speedy track stuff, a bunch of hilly mountain races and lots of loooong runs...sometimes it is nice when VLM is done

Dan - Invo8 extreme range are probably want you want (

I'm getting ready for London2Brighton this weekend. Looking forward to it and the weather looks like it will be kind (eg not too muddy). Will wear my road shoes, hopefully not a mistake. 06:30 start and hope to be done by 15:30...100km, (only) 1400m vert and 50 stiles...looking forward to a beer or two on the beach after. Training partner has been injured, hopefully he'll be ok during the run.

DanA - that is some course profile Legs feel tired just looking at it. Did you follow Nicky Spinks's double BG round over the weekend. 132miles, 84 peaks and 54,000ft of climbing in

TR - belated happy birthday, hope your M49 running days are better than your M48 ones

CW - impressively quick considering your racing in the weeks beforehand!

Trying to get focused on my 100km race a week on Sat. I was slightly concerned by the 1,400m of accent, but should just look at DanA's course profile to think I'm lucky. A bit of advice from the ultra experts please, how should a 100km taper differ from a marathon? I normally carb deplete, but thinking I'll skip this as an extra 1 or 2 kg on the start-line is probably a good thing

 CW - "manage 34M @ 6:45/M" that would be great going...I did 37M @ 6:54 m/m yesterday and even though I was finished at work by 10am I could really feel the day warming up! Good luck, I'll be following with interest. The maths behind "when will the car catch-me" sounds like a good exam question!

Padams - well done, I know those bike paths are never the fastest and the wind was quite brisk at times today. The fact that BF ran 2:31 tells you that the course/conditions wasn't fast. Although 69 by Marigold the week after 2:20 is impressive 

RB - great run Sounds like a great race...although those final few miles sounded really tough. The field did seem to be first class. Recover well.

Rested on Monday and Tues after London and then managed 50M for the rest of week. Another 37M commute planned this week, last one before the 100km

Padams - you've put us all to shame...that is some weekend!

AL_P wrote my report for me Fun running with you, I've got a good photo of us at 12M, send me a message and I can sent it over. Anyway, kept him in sight for last 10M and finished in 2:33:53, happy with that. Legs got a bit sore which slowed me down in the last 10k, but feel good this morning (could run up the 100 stairs at the underground station). I was impressed to see TT fly past me at 25M

Huge amount of sympathy to Jools,I'm very impressed by your pragmatic attitude towards it.

Well done all. Fab day out!

CC2 - really sorry to hear that I hope things improve asap

CW, CD - not sure how I had forgotten we had started 10m back last memory...must be old age

The VLM folks have posted the 5min timelapse version of the marathon route over on FB....some smart alec has posted a comment to say the Manchester version is only 4m47sec long

Feel rough...too many carbs...will feel fine by Sunday morning I'm sure. Uncertain about what to wear, I can get really cold and memories of the 2008 hail storm in Docklands are still with me.
