matt - you could bounce a sub 2.45 mara out before xmas if you wanted.  with proper training plan you would break 2.30  

The question is why run a marathon?

Dachs did you consider running behind the leader in the inside lane Instead of lane 2? 

SS - good to see you back. Your club has a load of really good youngsters coming through, if big stu is a weak link then you will go well in the relays. I'm away for the midlands but will run in the nationals.

Great pb, Sounds a good race Dachs. I would have thought 9.15 is in line with your recent 5k PB.  3000 is a funny race, the lap pace is never really fast but you always feel like you could have given more.

like lit, i have an elite entry to Robin Hood half. i plan to run it free, with out aiming for splits or PB, just go out and run whatever pace I feel like.  Main problem is 13 miles feels a long way at the moment 

regards stretching I have never been able to touch my toes, not sure i have ever got as far as my ankles! even in my teens

Bus, i have only just removed the 11lbs i put on from my week in washington back in early July.  its was a lot easier putting it on than it was getting it shifted.

bus, there isn't a flat race within an hour of me.  I travel to get the good flat races in.  You chaps are aware that the north isn't just 40 mins across by car aren't you   I mean abbey dash is in Yorkshire, christleton is in cheshire, Telford is in the midlands etc etc

phil - assume you mean england xc selection? probably not as i havent raced on the road since last yrs selection, had a poor XC season and havent raced in any BMAF races. so other than i raced reasonably well in last years international i have no reason to be picked.  im not sure my recent 800m and 1500m pbs will be enough to get selected for a 5m XC.  shame as a home international would be well supported.  I should have raced a 5k in may where i could have PBd but i was all eyes on the track season. So cant complain!     If i can get fit on xc i might race the open race (over the same courrse afterwards) to see if i could beat anyone from the international race!

good luck going through the selection process...(belated congrats for the bmaf medal on the track, sounds like tough race conditions).

Overdone it?

bob - after a couple of track sessions since returning from holiday i have decided to draw a close to 2014 track season.  no chance of me getting fast enough before the season ends as im travelling to india and then china for work in sept. 

I was suprised to see the vets cup final schedule, looks like they are consolidating a lot of the races, so you are either m35 or m50.  there is a M35 chap at our club who has raced every fixture in the league (i havent done one) who deserves to race ahead of me even if im a good chunk faster.  so im letting him choose what races he wants to do and i will fill in around the team.  probably means i will be on long jump or javelin.   What certainly wont be happening is my attempt at the league records so mr moorcroft will have to wait until 2015 to be knocked off that list!!
