I was watching the marathon last night when the power went off which was a pain!

So much going on, lots of running and cross training.

No run for me yet, unpacking, washing etc last night and very tired so decided there's no rush - will get out tonight, Certainly don't feel any after effects of Sunday.

NP sounds perfect, enjoy the sun!

Stewart no idea what that could be with the foot, I hope it clears up (and for Stuart and kaz).

Looking forward to the weekend now as day off tomorrow.

Is anyone racing over the weekend?

What a day!! Well done all. So pleased for you NN what a fab time! NP just back at the hotel after our meal out, you are amazing with your sub3's!! Jason I'm sure that run was a walk in the park for you. I saw a few TROTS vests on the way round.
I knew from miles 6-10 that it would not be a PB day so decided just to enjoy. Loved seeing Mo at the half way point, stopped to cheer him on.
Ended up somewhere between 3:23 and 3:24 I think.
Well done all those getting out for training today. It was nice and warm here although I still had my gloves on at the finish! Hope the weather was ok elsewhere.
Will have a proper read back when I get home.
Shame to have missed you mace, love to catch up with you guys, would be good to meet more of you!

MG1 good long run and I hope no lasting effect from the fall
Stewart thanks for the messages of support! My number is 28,180. Still unsure of what pace but I'll go out easy and see how I feel after the first 10k.
Mace we are planning Chandos after the run if you are around?
Stuart nice park running.
Teknik good hill work, no wonder the HR was a bit high!
Just back from coffee and cakes with Jason, NP, NN and Anita. Just great to see them all again and certainly does not seem like a year has passed. Jason's training is just mind blowing!! Looking forward to the celebrations tomorrow night.
Hope everyone has a good Sunday run and good luck to anyone racing or doing long runs.
Will report in tomorrow but still very relaxed as I have last year's time for a GFA for 2015 if it all goes pear shaped!!

Started that post hours ago and cross post with lots. We have a charity photo/jog Saturday morning NP or I would be joining you.

Expo for me tomorrow AGF, arrive at Gatwick 8.15am so will drop the bags at the hotel and head straight to the Expo.

Does Chris have a magazine HM4? I am pretty sure it tells you the cut off is 7 hours and I think they are very strict. He will manage that as it is walking pace!

NN the cafe is as NP says - I just head into the park opposite Horseguards Parade and it is next to the pond. 

There is a real mix of times NN anything from (maybe) just sub 3 to 4 hours although one of the girls had a bad chest infection and today was told she has pleurisy so she may take longer.

Thanks for all the good wishes everyone.

Been packing and got to get back to it

Colin well done on the intervals.

Mathschick Relax!! 

Stewart I hope the legs behave tonight but still early days. 

Teknik nice easy run.

Stuart be careful you don't want to get injured.

NP happy any time Saturday but if NN ok for 2:30pm that's fine with me - same place?

Sunday night nothing arranged as yet but there will be a good few of us heading out so we can stay in touch and it will be a great laugh as so many runners with their stories to tell! Only 2 of us have done London before. One of the 10 just getting over a stress fracture so she'll not be there but 9 will be running  and I've told them all what amazing runners you three are (jason are you there??) and they can't wait to meet you.  They do like to party! 

3 miles tonight, meant to be easy but chatting so much we didn't notice it was getting faster...

Ooh cross post! NN you are funny, I often think if I could not run (or cycle lots) I would be a real grump! 

NP I can just see a big blank square..

Where's the photo NP!? 

kaz good that you got home safely.

Colin either would be a good training run for your main goal. When I do a 10k in training I just run to the start (4 miles max as a warmup) then add miles on at the end to make up to the long run distance.

Nothing like a plan Teknik! 

HM4 good that you'll soon be out running again.

NN will be great to see you again Saturday - about time all you other threaders did London so we could all meet - if anyone is around on Saturday please come and join us! 

AGF I hope your recovery is going well?

Stuart nice recovery day - school holidays are a pain but at least the roads get quieter up here!

6 miles for me - just ran and felt quite bouncy!
