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.
