TR - I may change my mind on the day seeing how I'm feeling so you and Ode may get one more. 

Dan - Ha yes I remember that, I went a few steps in front of you to stop tripping over others as they were sticking close to you. 

AlanB - Folding tyres are easier to put a new tube in and the rigid tyres are usually cheaper. You don't carry spare tyres. A decent trainer racer tyre is the vredestein fortezza tricomp or schwalbe ultremo zx. You'll get differing opinions though as it's based on personal experiences.

Just gave the bike a clean and may get out shortly for a spin in this glorious weather.

Lots of great long runs being done and glad the wind from recent weeks has calmed a bit.

Cracking run Toro  

Steve6 - tough long run. It's funny once you get past the 20m point how much extra effort it requires and can take out of you.  I was at Cranleigh, supposed to do 21 but at 15m point turned for finish. Back was giving me trouble and had no desire for another loop.

Since learning of of my hernia training has been somewhat disjointed and slower. Got out for 1st 20m in 3 weeks yesterday @7.05 pace knowing my legs lacked the long miles, feel ok apart from sore back. Reckon I should be able to keep Dan and PP company now and try and enjoy the run. Weather looking nice now so should be a heatwave on 26th. ;o)

Dan - I may consider that and could be a laugh.

Good milestone CD (and win), see some guy hit his 500th last week at Frimley. Weather tomorrow is showing heavy rain at 10. Not too bad for running but carp for your duathlon, unless your finished by then.

Jap - Sounds lovely. Hope your legs are recovering well.

Watched the world xc from China earlier. African dominance as usual.

MTR - Nice one on the streak, 50years to catch Ron Hill. 

Wishing swift recoveries to all benchees  

Good news on Red Lion still being available for our post mara beer. 

I'm still lining up for London but my thoughts of running it properly have now changed.  Have been experiencing lower abdomen pain for 3months which have got worse in last 5/6weeks affecting first few miles of every run and then dull ache for remainder.   Saw Dr in Jan for referral to Hospital. Had to wait over 2months to get seen today for ultrasound and been told I have a hernia.  See Dr again next week to discuss surgery but think I'll wait until after London to get it sorted, if NHS can sort it out that quick as heard there might be a wait.  Cranleigh 21 tomorrow which I will take a bit easier.

Dan, you only went and did it. Crab will at least have to give you a, modest effort now son.

Well done JAP (2.5min neg split indeed) and Wardi too.

Some old faces checking in, so thought I'd add mine to the mix. Well dones to the Watford racers and Marders for topping the podium once again.

Just back from a chilly 10m and popping in as I need to get motivated. Running of late has been a bit of a mish mash (as and when) so will keep an eye on P&D as their 12wk plan starts today. Missed entering Bramley 20m so if anyone can't make it let me know. Off to LA on Weds for a week so happy to get away from these icy temps and do some runs in a t-shirt.

Just dropping in....

Jools - Wow, you absolutely smashed it. What an improvement. Ace.
Great runs by Selbs (glad you could get a good time, seeing what you've gone through in past few years). TT another sub 2.30. Nice.

Over and out, for now.

Yeah I think the commentators are a bit off the mark. You can't just go and take a big risk and run at half mara pace for the mara, if your at the Games there's a good chance you know your optimal race pace. Only one I rate is Crammy.

I think Steve's cheeks will ache tomorrow with all the grinning he's been doing. Tune in at 20:45 as he's in the BBC studio with Lineker.

Marigold, great run. Was a bit concerned at the 1:06 at halfway as that is so quick but you pulled it out the bag, a pb, 1st for England an over 40 UK best and 10th at CWG. Pretty darn awesome. Can you allow yourself a cigar now?
The Aussie ran alright too.
