Luke - I thought there was only one CW but you have proved us wrong. Can't be a better day to do an over distance run.
CW - I wouldn't expect anything less than a mara from you, must have been a little bit hard going after the HM. Well done on the podium.
Steve6 - That's a good long run with a nice sub60 in there. You didn't say how you got back home, assuming you didn't have to do another 10m.
AW - Great run there and a 2min pb is massive.
HR - 3.30 hours and over 4000ft, wow, hope you had enough food with you. Spotted your result at Guildford yesterday splitting a few of my Woking clubmates. I did that one last week and it was about 300m too long on the temporary course. Didn't know you were GGAC.
Bufo - Cracking run to get in top 100.
Finchley 20 earlier. What a great morning for running. It's 4x5m undulating loops although there is quite a bit of traffic and junctions to contend with.
Set off nice and easy with Dachs on 6.45's for first 5 which wasn't far off (33.40ish) then he pushed on a bit and I settled into 6.10's which I carried on right to the end. 1.32.30ish for last 15 for 2.06.17. A nice confidence run as felt pretty good after. Had to shout at a few runners running on a narrow part with their ipods as they couldn't hear a thing. They should ban them in races.
Tomorrow will be a rest day and first one after 100+ day running streak..
The Surrey half marathon was today, wasn't bothered about doing it as it didn't appeal. The results show it was a quality field with a load of Kenyans turning up for the win in 63min. Must have been a few bob for the win. Saw Marders did it and from his splits looks like he was pacing the first lady as his last 11k was as fast as Phil Wicks.
