Some very impressive runs going on at Bath. Great PB Al_P, and long overdue (we set our PBs in the same race, and I thought mine was old when I broke it last Autumn). Likewise a great run from Dr D, though like others I suspect there's more in that tank. Good solid runs from Luke, PP and Jools as well.
Padams' half marathon win was immense. Got to be the one in red hot form at the moment, will be very interesting to see what comes out the end in terms of a marathon. Not sure I've ever seen half marathon mile splits starting with three different numbers before, although I suspect Samir Haddad's Reading Half 2013 may have started with five or six different numbers.
Seems to be some rotten luck with niggles and injuries too, from ES, selbs, Lev, CC2, and particularly nasty sounding from bains. Hopefully all will be well.
Nice long running TR, TT, CD and SL, and nice casual 5 miler from SL after a meagre 12m warm-up.
Looking to lock in a fast, competitive 10K this May, and Bristol seems like my only realistic southern option (due to unavailability some weekends). It looks on a map like it should be quick, but a lack of PBs in previous years' results suggests otherwise. Anyone run it?
