Your perception is right SG.  I seem to get sick a lot. if there is a bug going around work or with my kids I will get it.   This one flattened me. Over a week off work , no running at all and it's gone on my chest.  No chance I'm training through it and making it even worse.  Taking it as rest and will come out fighting soon enough.

get dachs with your fancy technical talk   never in all the years i have spent on the track has anyone refered to that line as a 0/400m line.   Have you ever seen athletics at the olympics and not spotted all the track races end on the same line

no running for me for last 8 days.  suffered double man flu. off work for a full week.  coming out the other side now but my chest is rattling like a 80yr old who worked down the mines and smoked 100 a day.  looks like i will miss the midlands xc relays. as defending champs that a bit annoying

Another London Marathon ballot rejection

How about entry guaranteed after 10 rejections provided you have completed a different marathon in the past 2 years in say sub 5hrs.   That way you have to demonstrate your eagerness to race rather than just send a form off and bleat about unfairness.

As Matt and Simon said I did the national 6 stage relays on sat.  We had 3 drop out with sickness on the day we knew as a team we would struggle.  2 of the lads not running was a 14.10 and low 15min 5kers so any team would miss that.  I had been feeling sick a few days before but with the other lads dropping out I loaded myself up on lemsip and got out there.

First mile I pushed it but I was getting passed by so many and they just dropped me.  Made me feel like I was standing still. I was 4.53 pace at one point and loads flew past.  I convinced myself they had overcooked the start and I would reel them in later.  5.16 for the first mile with the big long hill in it. Though everyone else's garmin beeped way before mine so it was probably much quicker. Next mile flattens out....more people fly past me So I try and go with them.   I working hard but my legs feel empty from the recent sickness.  5.18 mile.  Next mile I push hard. I start passing people, a 5.11 mile. I have a big gap to the next in front but have about 7 vests on my shoulder. I decide to hold what I have but kick the finish hill.  we turn hard and all start sprinting. I  take off and destroy them  according to strava I have the 7th fastest sprint finish on the course of all time and only 1s off being 1st.  Though I take that with a pinch of salt. 

Finished in 18.48 

managed a quick catch up with Simon, but couldn't find matts camp though did give him a shout out on his leg. 

Was great watching olympians like butchard and other proper fast types too. any race where jonny davies is about 8 th fastest shows the calibre.

spent all day Sunday ill and I'm suffering from sickness now.  Looks like a few days off!

More good parkruNing and sounds like a good race bus....though as SG says no chance of me racing an event like that...too hard!

But bus, how many people have run a 80min half marathon dressed as a male nurse?  It's less than the amount  of sub 30 10kers... so is that by default better?

i think you have been a bit free and easy with the word "outstanding" there bus.  Its good and an impressive achievement but in the same way that the youtube clip of a woman doing keepy uppies in high heels was impressive.

i dont think anyone is saying running 26m a day is easy. He has done an excellent job particularly in the points Lit made.  but pushing out 6hr 26miles a day for 100 days sounds like something i can imagine people on this thread could achieve.   whereas im not anyone on this thread will get a 30min 10k.   (i guess potentially there night be some on this thread who could do keepy uppies in high heels but thats for a different thread)

nice last rep reg. 

cc and pete - cheers & agree about whiteman making the rest of the field look slow. i did a 58 last lap which is fast imo for a last lap 1500 and but he ran away comfortably he did a 53!  faster than Mo's last lap in his 5000 olympic final.  whiteman is a double olympian and WR holder!  but whilst simon is grinning that he has moved up into the v45 im not sure he is aware he is taking whiteman with him this summer
