Jools - cheers, sounds pretty good then.  I'll put myself down for it.

PP - yes, get in the sub-33 road club, you've been fannying around in the low 33s for too long.  Wish I could provide you with a target to chase at Eastleigh, but it clashes with Reading this year..

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?

AG - RRR is ??1.50 if you're a member on club session nights, but its ??4ish to use Palmer Park at other times - and its often booked up. I do a lot of my reps in the Park itself - the path around the outside has 100m markers that are pretty accurate and very useful.

Today's run was 13 with a mixed bag of stuff - 1.5m @MP, 5 x 300m hills, 2 x 0.5m @ 10k pace, then another 5 x 300m hills (hills at 5k effort). Just mixing up the paces. Legs feel heavy.

Nice paces on those reps Dean. When's the next race?

IC - 3 miles down there, 8 laps then 2 miles back, so not too bad.

IronCat - no, despite it being right on my doorstep, I don't use that park much for training. Apart from anything else, I ran at lunchtime, and a13 miler would have taken me past my kids in the school playground 13 times, and u didn't really fancy their friends clustering at the fence and pointing at me every time I went past. I did it in Palmer Park, which is where I do a lot of my fast stuff.

Ex-SA would be fine - despite their authoritarian leanings, they'd be at least 98 years old, and more of a risk to themselves standing around in the cold than they would be to you.

Good consistent reps Bus, don't look too slow either to me, it's low 35 minute 10K pace after all.


Good reps too Dean, especially if you're coming at it off a weekend illness.

Simon, good run at the Nationals.  Sounds like an absolute nightmare.  I watched a bit of that headcam video that was doing the rounds on FB last night (PP posted it I think), and was glad I wasn't there.  Absolutely do not get the attraction.  Like you, I'll be happy when the road stuff kicks off in earnest and I can start rectifying some of those head to head records.  Having said that, I'm really looking forward to the Inter-Counties, which will be a bit of a different thing to your normal XC fare.  I would say I'm looking forward to wearing a different colour vest for once, but the Berkshire vest is also green.

Great win at the weekend by the way Jonny if you're out there.

13 with 11 at marathon pace yesterday, done as mile laps of a park.  5:51 average pace for the 11.  Wind was not at all pleasant.

No-one ever questioned why Terry Butcher (born in Singapore) should represent England.

I wonder why.

I volunteer for that Bus. I've always thought you duck races against world class opposition anyway.
