But surely Seren is 21????

She is 21, but with many years seniority in rank.

If the shoes you have worked for you, apart from the mileage then get another pair. Then you won't need gait analysis.

Good weekend Simon.

My MaxHR is over 200, as I've seen it 200 in final sprints at races. Not HR spikes either.

Scott - I rolled my shins. It didn't hurt; what is it supposed to do? Hr easy turbo yesterday and 4mi recovery run at lunch today. Most of Sunday's stuff is out of the legs now and they feel pretty good again.

Today was old school XC, not like the more frequent frozen but firm & dry Sandhurst courses (other than 2012).

Saw PMJ's results and hoped it was just the conditions. Hope niggle sorts itself out and you're back on it. Pace wise I was similar; starting like a loon but degrading every second I ran.

With the conditions as they were my aim was to beat my 2012 time of 39:23 (109th) and I crossed the line at 39:22 (144th), so happy with that. I raced in 2013 but cannot compare to then! Positioning is difficult to compare year on year so I'll see in which percentile I finished when the full results are out. As usual looking back I think I could have given more, but I doubt I could have at the time. Lost a load of places on the final hill and clawed them all back on the final sprint.

RH soleus is tight, but achilles is OK

Ric, including WU & CD I went in to double figures today albeit km. Something I haven't done in a long time.

I thought I saw Dachs as I was heading towards the buffet but assumed I had water in my eye as he wasn't going to be there. I'm sure we'll see you at some more XC in the new year.

Won't be at HX, Mrs & I should both make it to RRR if it is dry so the kids can stand and support.

Cyclocross, most fun you can legally have with your clothes on covered in mud, fairly cheap and over within one horrible hour

I see you CX and raise you XC

I haven't swum for about a year and haven't swum more than a km since 2012. I'd finish but it wouldn't be pretty! 

I do various forms of running year round, which I enjoy. I also do various types of cycling year round which I enjoy. Summer TTs are great as is winter XC running. 

In the autumn and winter I put them together and do some duathlons.

Aquaplaning was an autocorrect. It should of course have read Aquathlon! 

I detest swimming.

Pentathlon is therefore in a similar bucket as helicopters; fine for the military on those with too much money.

Apropos of nothing, UK Pentathlon are the governing body for something called "Biathle" which is essentially the same as aquaplaning.

2.5 damp hours on the bike. Getting reading for a sopping XC tomorrow with some black IPA.

Glad to hear you're back on it Johnas.
