I managed a slow 14 miles last night. Way too warm for me. Looks like today is going to be warmer again!

RunClaire - I ran my first four marathons without a Garmin or GPS type watch and to this day I'm still not much of a clock watcher. I really only use my Garmin for measuring distance and to check my average pace after the run.

Agree on running on the heat. Really not looking forward to tonights run. It's already boiling outside.

HiaHS - I do wonder where your daughter would have gotten her competitive streak from?

I've heard of competitive parents, but competitive children is a first!

Karen - Well done! Six minutes is a huge chunk of time to knock off a 10k PB.

Chips and beer sounds like a good recovery plan.

I did Paris/London a couple of years ago. Like yourself I struggled with doing two marathons two weeks apart. In London I was death marching from mile 20, despite trying to take it easy that day. I had seven weeks between Paris and Stockholm this year and found that so much easier. I didn't feel any fatigue from running Paris in Stockholm.

rodeoflip - Well done on the GFA!

I think the weather can play a bigger role than the course in how fast you run at a marathon, unless the course is super evil. Strong headwinds can be draining and heat always slows me down. Although I ran well in Paris this year despite the heat.

Fantastic running at Liverpool lads!

I did a 10k today with the dynamic duo of Scott the Walker and Helterskelter. I've been loaded with the cold for just over a week, so took this one easy. Great company, great cake at the finish, and good to have my first run since Stockholm done and dusted.
