morning folks!! 

Malcs -  The weather was perfect on sunday. really was glad to have no rain though as the trails would of been quite muddy..

If i don't get a chance later, Good luck to all of those running London on sunday. I get quite jealous this time of year as I work in Blackheath and all the prep for the marathon is all around me..At least i can be glad in the knowledge that next year ill be ready to run. (just need to make sure i put my GFA entry in)

I second that about Chester...an amazing race and a good pb course. I got my sub 3 there last year 5 months after a tough 3:17 Edinburgh marathon. I'm hoping to go sub 2:50 there this year...

Tom - that seems to be a strange situation. If they were shoes that you were trying for the first time, then I could understand you not being used to them but since you did a fair chunk of your training in them they should have been ok. I know I should rotate my shoes but I buy a pair and run in them till I need a new pair so training and races are done in the same shoes. Sorry to hear that your foot still hurts, it must be so frustrating wanting to run and push for that target but being grounded by an injury.

I didn't do any running this weekend, instead I went to South Wales with a few mates and we did 2 days of mountain biking through the welsh hills. So much fun and a good test as far as fitness goes... I think I am ready to restart my marathon training woohoo...

Roundman - best of luck for next Sunday... I have never followed a training plan as I struggle to follow it as I tend to run on gut instinct rather then a scheduled plan. I think having a partner to run with would help bring some structure to my training..last year I raised the bar fairly high so have a lot of work to do to better it...

Wow Tom, very impressive splits considering the latter stages were plagued by cramps..if you manage to get a place for edinburgh, it will be kind to your legs as its downhill to start and flat the remainder. Gutted I'll be missing this year as I have run it the last 3 years (schools go back the following day).  

Thankfully I seem to be injury free, I played 90 min of football yesterday and no issues aside from very stiff legs..I might download the asics training plan and start it early just to get my fitness back up..

Great result Saffa mark. I'm from SA as well so the warmer weather doesn't bother me either.. I going to be hunting a sub 2:50 in October so hope I can get the training upto where it needs to be..

Hi Tom, glad to see you have taken this as a learning experience and something to build on...

Hope you don't think I'm being too forward, is there a way I can stay in touch as I would like to follow your progress as you get faster and faster and possibly join you once I get my mojo back in time for my next race..

Tom, again what an amazing performance... Glad to see you are already looking to shave 12s off. Possibly an autumn race.. For now, enjoy a well earned PB..
