Howard are you going to do a proper report? Surely must be more to it you remember.

Martin exciting. Take it steady though, regardless of wet weather - Ultra is no different from a marathon..(found that at Glasgow Edi ultra) you go off fast, you know the rest. Enjoy it though. Get that buckle!

Fido, You know you can do Comrades. painkillers, willpower, you've done it before.

Ikle, thought you had hurty knees.. and switched to Hokas? glad you don't but a little confused.

NFS cycling definitely helped then. but with you on rest weekend.

Aunty still with us, and happily celebrated her birthday.

Steady 8 miles tonight, but legs not 100%. 2-3 rest days planned.

Susan, that was a hard thing to do. At least family know friends with her., must've reassured them., Hope Gordon is looking after you that little bit extra.

Howard, I've done that Berlin walking tour, fab but a long time on feet. Rest will speed things up. As would a massage. Some lovely German food too.

Ikle, trail marathon, and your legs still sore, when is the enduro ultra coming up?. Are the Hokas trail or road ones?

Good news from Aunty. Improved. Even had some birthday cake, as it was yesterday, almost didn't make it. Still long way to go though.

S&C session earlier, then massage tonight. Legs definitely hit harder than Wrexham in March. VLM was 5 minutes faster time, but 10-20% harder effort aiming for 10-15 minutes faster. Calves quads and hamstrings all had knotty bits.

Few rest days.

Susan, that's terrible news, really sorry to hear about your friend. Puts all into perspective. (See below).

Howard, already posted congrats but very solid, especially with a fall. More to come too?

Ntfs, excellent time. pretty much bang on guesstimates , similar to your club mate week before?

Fido, oh no. That doesn't sound good, Physio, massage will get you there. You've done it before and got there - and finished. Inspired me to have a go too. You'll make it.

Good but not great run for me, 3:2x (if Ted Rogers and Dusty bin did marathons), but fade started at 18 miles by 7-8 minutes probably unwise to chase PB whilst training for Comrades. 3 marathons, ultra & team trail event in last 8 weeks training going to sneak up at some point.

I enjoyed London a lot more this time though, crowds were great. Atmosphere really did push you. Lots of high fives, and getting crowd to cheer. And lovely first class train back, shower at station, very relaxed for an extra ??5.

Finished though, waiting for train and wife found out her Aunt is critical in hospital after cancer related op last week. Family called in to see her so didn't post result till late, really wiped us out. She has rallied now, but long way to go. Daily.

Running is not that important.

Great stuff Howard. You're ready to rock if the gel belt is packed.

NFS you'll be fine. It's at least 3 weeks since I did a marathon. You don't forget.

If I don't post, everyone have a great day and fantastic race. If you see a red Wallasey vest with martin on the front... Or yellow buff on head.. Say hello.

Feeling there is something missing... Nagging away at me.

Howard need your poem surely?

Martin enjoy your taper. Well earned rest.

Howard looking good in the yellow kit. I hadn't even thought about the expo yet, any good bits?. The web tracker worked well the last few years even on your phone. Just a few days now, getting exciting to see you do sub 4.

NFS also looking good. Maybe run the same time as your club mate.

Conditions look great to me, cool with a little rain. Perfect to run well in. Blue start for me also. Red Wallasey vest Martin on front. Little leg stretcher tonight is last run for me.

Awesome Just ACoops. You did it!

You must've run past me twice. Really really hard to see anyone though unless you know a club top or charity vest.

Actually friend was pacing someone to sub 4 and finished in about 3:54-55... (Goes to check photos.. There was a couple in matching outfits nearby?)

Sorry Just Coop, only just read this. Would've looked out if I'd known a club top.

Perfect conditions today in MancLand, 5-8 degrees, slight breeze. Lovely for runners, freezing for spectators. That of course means London will be a heat wave and scorching!

Howard, you;ll be across that line next Sunday. No need to do 8 MP miles though. Rest calf? I know what Susan would say...

Kelvin welcome. We are good bunch here. Bet you smash it this year. Just charge the watch.

Martin getting exciting! You can do this. PMA all the way.

NFS, sad putting flowers there. Haven't seen any mention in news? Hope you and club mates sticking together for VLM.

Fido hope the ITB and other stuff sort out. I'm on the lookout for hilly runs for Comrades, but MK? Tell me more.

Last few runs for me before VLM, Lovely interval session Thursday, 8 x 1km, off 60s recoveries, ran mix of 5/10k/ half and marathon pace (easy?).
12 miles this morning with club, 4 at MP but rest were really easy. Getting a bit worrying that legs feel this good. Tempting to go for it, but Comrades is "A" race.

Going to watch Manchester mara tomorrow, looks like lovely weather. VLM could be 20 degrees I see? Hmmm.
