Such a great day for all...really pleased that people got the times they've been working so hard for (and a WR!). Will try to post a bit more later. 2:35:46, same time as another fred member, enjoyed running across Tower Bridge and the finishing line with them. My legs were complaining from about mile 8 which wasn't good!

9yr  London streak continues...

2:47, 2:35, 2:33, 2:28, 2:29, 2:31, 2:35, 2:35, 2:35 (see a pattern!)

I have a stupid goal of trying to run 10 yrs consecutive under 2:40

Facebook is full of pictures of people from the expo tagged with a certain v40 215 runner....I hope he wasn't upset that I didn't ask for a selfie with him. But nice to catch-up for 5 min.

Padams - I did that blood test last year. Got the results back 6 months later, told me I had poor genes for a distance runner...couldn't disagree with them.

PR said previously that she would expect to run 230low, but has back tracked from that a bit in recent days saying that she isn't that fit at the moment. She ran 34:11 for 10k recently.

I'm planning on going out at 5:52 to 5:55 m/m pace if anyone is interested in tagging along.

I would feel a fraud adding my time to this list....anyway TR would remove me as a 1-post Johnny. I guess something around DrDave's targets, but being my 9th consecutive London I can't get too stressed about it.

Training has been ok, ran Brighton with MrsC so that might have a (small) impact. Last carb low day, good.

Been sporadically following the fred. Some really impressive training and racing. Very pleased to see DanA go sub245 and long time fred personalities still getting PBs  

Hope to see some of you in the Red Lion

Marigold - I'm really proud of you. I once had an exchange on this forum with Pug about how none of us were ever going to make it to a major sporting championships....I'm so glad you've proved me wrong. Enjoy every moment (doubt you'll have much problem with this) and have a great run. You and Sarah make a great team.

CW - nutter (in the nicest possible way)

Padams - ouch, I hope you're not sidelined for too long.

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.

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.
