Well done to the Barcelona crew, JAP, Wardi and DanA.
Especially impressed with Dan who I seem to remember took about a dozen attempts
to go sub 3 so a sub 2.45 is really remarkable.
Really impressed with Wardi too. My last outing was a 3.33 at VLM 2011 aged 54 so a
3.30 aged 57 is top draw stuff.
Can't really comment on JAP because it is way beyond anything I was capable of doing.
While I'm on I thought I'd update you on the Dull family. Some of you will have met them at one of the post VLM drink ups.
I can't run more than 1.5 hours now without running the risk of having a limp the next day.
The problem in in the calf achillies area. Got a roller now which has helped but my marathon running days I think are over.
I'm still in good health though and happy.
Mrs Dull came off the breast cancer drugs last year and is all clear which is a massive relief. She is a runner and recently ran her first half.
Miss Dull is about to go into her final year at Surrey where she is studying Law.
Master Dull is in his first year at Oxford where he is studying Maths and Computer Science
a major shock to me as I thought he was a bit dim.
Neither of the kids are runners then again I wasn't at their age.
My next post will probably be next year when I'll become a V60 that is unless something massive happens on here like another Barcelona.
