SL: AWESOME!  But has in no way tempted me to try anything similar.

Life has been a bit hectic, but just dropping in to wish Poacher well.  Don't give up - as plenty of others with relevant experience have said, the show is definitely not over yet, because the fat lady is still singing.

Week 1 of P&D completed: 54 miles.  Won't see mileage that low again until the taper!

Slokey: wow.  That is properly tough but also just the round side of mental.  I'm relieved you won't be entering next year!

Badbark: you are in phenomenal shape at the moment, to manage a HM at that pace after all the other long distance races you've done.

5M plod for me this morning to try and flush the legs out.

Arse.  Lost my reply.  Well done racers.  Busy week for me with 18 on tired legs to bring up 55M.  That's the edited version!

Wow, there's been a lot of racing going on, especially by JAP and Speedy.  But nice 5000s from Padams and PP, too.

Very busy work week so I ended up with 5/5/rest/8/12/7/18.  Not a well-structured week and probably should have made sure today's run was flat, but couldn't face the repetitive laps that would require.  Still, 55M for the week so ready to tackle P&D week 1 tomorrow

16M this morning to bring up 50M for the week.  Very gradually starting to feel fitter and stronger again - and reminding myself that it's how I run in Sept/Oct which matters, not June!

I'm pretty sure Badbark completed most of his marathons in the last few weeks

I agree with SJ, Birch.

Nice scalp, PMJ.  Was she jogging?

16M for me this morning to bring up 50M for the week.  Very gradually starting to feel a bit fitter, but 4 stressful work days on the bounce to get through now...!

Ha! Has been a bit quiet on here.

Take care of the niggles, JB.

10K trail race last night. First lady in 39.49 so still not fast. Legs felt tired but breathing was fine. 6M easy this morning.

I managed 10k pace for 3k and ran my slowest 3k in nearly 2 years. Race predictors would say sub 10.30 easily so I was 7s/km off pb pace and 12s/km off where I should be. Not fast!
