Did you see the photos Dan posted on the other thread?

In 2012, when he was apparently blasting a 1.19 second half, they show him taking things very easy - walking in fact! Even stronger evidence than the chip times if you ask me.  

I've walked during a 1:19 half. It wasnt a good day.

Personally, i'm more intetrsted in his 7 hour marathon last year. How does a youngish personal trainer do that and manage to keep any clients?

 Welcome back Samir, good to see you have as many fictional adventures in Vegas as you do here.

A mighty report Lev! Sounds like a perfectly executed race, and a well deserved PB.

My journey to a 2:3x at VLM 2016 started brilliantly today with 1m in 8:56. OK, I was pacing my son on a mile time trial. I thought he did OK for a 7 year old. I might pack in runnng and live vicariously through him.

Luckily my P&D is close to hand. Their schedule has runs Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, all at recovery pace, at 4-6 miles, depending which mileage schedule you were using. But they do also say take whatever time off you need this week.

SS - you live and you learn.!  Sounds like a combination of bad luck with the stitch and bad pace judgement.  Just put it down to experience, you're a lot faster than 30:10.  Good thing about a poor5-miler is you can get back out there and do another ASAP.

TT- hopefully we'll have enough faster runners that I'm not even needed!

Jonathan Edwards seemed to have developed a sizeable man-crush on HR by the end of the interview.  "I understand you're also an author?!" and "And you ran 2:45?!".  Quite reasonably too, I'm sure we all feel the same way about HR.

It's actually a great tactic for PB-hunting, Lit - run away from the scary beardy man!

AR - fair enough, I can't say I'd really looked too much into the Hanson's method, I just had a vague recollection of it being composed of shorter, faster long runs.  Plenty of time for me to reconsider my marathon approach though, although I can already see the pressure developing within the club to get a men's team off the Champ start next year.

Real shame that your marathon was ruined like that, but well done on at least completing the run and soaking up the atmosphere.  Hopefully you can bounce back at the next one.  I think you need to improve your shorter times though, your upwards conversion is obscenely good!

Bus - glad you enjoyed your fell racing malarkey and post-run refuelling.  Sounds like you did well considering the continued niggling injury.

PMJ - a 'manipulator'?  Sounds sinister.

AR - I use Berkshire Physiotherapy on Wokingham Road in Earley.  I haven't got a lot of experience with physios, but my clubmate, who seems to be some kind of injury magnet swears by them.  Not sure if that's actually a good thing?  But they're friendly, open late for those who work, and know their way around sports injuries.

I'd say it's a certainty Johnas.  But how will that be any different from your way home any other day?
