Padams - that looks like a great run...! I have no doubt you'll be great at the long distance stuff. I've signed up to do London to Brighton 100k race end May...going to run it with Pieter. Going to do it off the back of marathon training and adding a few runs from home to work (35M) 

Middle Coro has been selected to run for Herts at the U13 inter-counties next month. Luckily his race is just before the vet XC championship races which Mrs C and I will run. A family day of XC!

Padams - yes, I'll be there. He is in the U13 race, so off at 12:30....given the horrible weather forecast I might not hang around to see the senior races, pity as they look interesting! Going to be a very high standard! Think I should join Striders 2nd claim next season so I can run at the same events that he does. 

Lev - take care of that foot! Sure we'll be passing on the canal a few times more before London!

My London number is my PB year I had 600, so maybe a good omen

Afternoon....long time no post...guilty of not logging in to RW for the last 6 months.

After a rather hectic last 24 months to say the least, I'm trying to get my running mojo back. Did a HM last Sunday (second race since 26/4) and managed to run a minute slower than my London split...oh dear! Once a runner....

Anyway I've got my number for London (will be 10th year in a row) and also signed up for some 100km offroad event a month later, I'll see if that does the trick.

Oldest coro was doing some running before gone off to uni, middle coro is turning into a good 800m runner (can be seen running around Padams's track) and youngest is just starting...and mrsC is also running quite a bit and racing. so you can imagine how many trainers we have in the house Hoping to run NY next year with mrsC as will be 10 yrs since running it on our honeymoon, but guess childcare issues may stop that.

So impressed by the continued exploits of the folks on here. It is so good seeing how some of the long time posters seems to be getting ever better....PP (becoming another fred international athlete!), Jools, Padams...inspirational stuff.

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.
