The one other factor in the balance is that Mr Jools is American hence a trip stateside would make sense. I suspect he would steer me towards Chicago as that's where he studied.

Club session tonight was a rather gruelling 5 X 1.15 miles off what was notionally 2 minutes recovery although for the back markers like me it was more like 1.5. Still, 12 miles all in so a decent workout.

I think Comrades will be 2017 at the earliest for me, as still making progress with the marathon (at the risk of tempting fate), plus I am thinking that after what will have been 4 back-to-back marathon campaigns (autumn 2014, spring 2015, autumn 2015 and spring 2016) I will probably have either a lighter autumn 2016 or maybe do Chicago or New York for fun.  I'm still really enjoying my running at the moment, but I think something a bit different might be nice.

Dan: I am so gutted for you. You have been so unlucky with the longer races. I really do believe there's a good result around the corner. And as for getting back out there mid race: chapeau.

Realised I forgot to congratulate Badback on a brilliant race report.

KR: wow.  That's huge mileage - nearly a week's worth for me in 22 hours!

Just a couple of recovery runs for me today, although glancing out of the window I'm not really looking forward to this morning's.  High risk of shoaming.

I emailed Friday morning and got a reply Friday afternoon.  I suspect they aren't staffed over the weekend.

I emailed and got a reply saying they will send me a white race number. PB of 1.21 and estimate similar or better this year but had yellow number.

Hi, I'm here. Busy day yesterday eating posh food. Avon relays today. Apparently 5km, but stated on po10 as long last year and I think the course was the same this year... anyway, 3rd leg meant a solo tempo run, so 19.07 was all I managed, but that got me 1st team (cider), 1st FV35 team (medal) and 5th fastest leg (chocolate) so I was perhaps over-rewarded! Cutback week now finished...

GD: hope you are lucky finding new employment soon!

Finished off my cut back week with 11M including the Avon relays. Notionally 5km, although apparently long last year and I think we did the same course this year. I was leg 3 with no-one to chase, so a solo tempo run of 19.07 had to suffice but it was enough to secure 1st team, 1st FV35 team and 5th fastest on the day (the standard overall dropping off quickly!).

Wow, PP. You are in amazing shape!

Few quiet days for me to relax and recover after club session on Tuesday. 9 weds and 8 yesterday. Going to squeeze my cutback week long run of 15 in today then a rest day tomorrow (off for a posh lunch with Mr Jools) ahead of the Avon road relays on Sunday.
