Lorenzo - yes, Cranleigh in Surrey. Although I live in Suffolk I have family in Surrey and love this race so come and stay with them for the weekend to run it. It's been a great one for me over the years for pacing strategy with the various laps, and not too many hills to contend with! The parkrun there sounds like fun (not!).
Jools - well done on the XC and team silver
Gul - 4am long run, rather you than me
Badbark - well done on the MT podium
Hilly - wise to cut the long run short when you're feeling rubbish. Still mega mileage for January though
Birch - hope the knee isn't too bad?
Speedy - great long run, bet that was painful getting out of the car though!
My January mileage was a paltry 152, which is well below par.
17 LSR yesterday @ average 8.20, but progressive pace with last few nearer to 8's. Legs feeling surprisingly good. 5 recovery miles this morning nice and easy.
Hopefully this week I can get out a bit more than the last few weeks and get my week's total closer to 50. I've never been one to do huge mileage (I think my max week ever is around 62) but I do need to pick it up.
