well done to all the cyclists, long runners and racer Matt but especially Dachs - those splits tell their own story. Massive congrats on a seriously good time mate.

1. Top draw PP. A true masterclass in pacing. Great stuff

2. Dean. Class mate and excellent race report that. 

3. Samir. Well done on the PB but please refer to point 1.

One benefit of being in Holland at the weekend was the berlin marathon was on the telly Sunday morning. made for great viewing. sub 2:03 wow.

And just in case anyone is interested, this was the beer of the weekend for me. 'Dry hopped' with 1000 doughnuts!

all good cheers Bus. Foot seems fully recovered and after a cautious week, my gait seems to be back to normal too. Should be up to 21 miles this week.

Sorry to hear you're still suffering. As others have said, I wouldn't run if I were you. Can you get access to a cross trainer? I found it a great way of keeping fit when i had that groin/abductor injury earlier in the year.

did someone say rebuilding?

11 miles last week. 16 this week. BOOOOOOOOM!

Well done on the PB Lit. Must be a quick course - everyone I know who ran it knocked minutes off their PBs.

Cabbage Patch sounds a lovely day out. I'll think of you all whilst I attempt to get myself round Amsterdam HM after not running that far since 25th May! thank God for the local postrace 'painkillers'

Dean - great reply. Last night I managed my second run this week after no running at all for 10 weeks whilst this stress fracture healed. It was part of an Inter Advertising 5km in Regents Park.

On a good day and when fit, I would have comfortably podium'd but obv not in this current shape. And do you know what - after a disastrous 2014 running wise, last night reminded me why I run. It was so much fun even if I did barely break 22 minutes. I'll be back chasing PBs again one day but for now, I'm going to Find Fun.

cheers peeps. crap year for injuries as you say Bus but i had a good run for a couple of years with back to back marathons. Can't rush recovery either so it's just a case of being patient.

Hows the injury Johnas if you're still reading?

Haha... thanks Matt. First time on here more or less in the last month so apologies for not knowing what everyone's been up to! Don't have the time to read a month's worth of posts but I did see Dachs' 5k on FB - a well deserved 15:xx. Well done mate.

as for me, I haven't really ran since the duathlon on 27 June. Not sure if it's extensor tendonitis or a stress fracture in my left foot but either way, I've been limping since then and only really been able to put weight on it since last week, as long as I'm wearing cushioned shoes. Hopping or running though are out the question and I've written of the rest of the summer. 

Still, the lack of ability to train means I've been working on my drinking ability which I must say, is going from strength to strength!
