I pb'd by 0.3s over 3000m, Dachs.  I wouldn't have dipped if I'd known I was that close to the ultimate Bubka pb...

OK, so those who run at Gul o'clock see the sunrise in October...  Because I'm a slacker I left at 6.55am and returned at 8am.  Somehow I just don't seem to manage if I'm awake before 6am and I need about 45 minutes to wake up, eat banana, drink a pint of tea and stuff before I'm ready to hit the roads.

Abbers: it was pretty sobering news to wake up to.  Got to feel for the bowler as well and wonder if he'll ever feel able to bowl again.

8M plod this morning.  Best thing about early doors running at this time of year is getting to see the sunrise, I guess.

Yes, the second time counts as a proper pb.  I checked about the 5000 because it's the only 5000 as opposed to 5k I've ever run.

Just for TR:

Distance      2013               2014
3000           10.46.6            10.46.3
5000            n/a                 18.26.5
5k               19.09              18.37 
10k             38.51               37.43
HM             1.23.43            1.21.57
Marathon     2.59.04            2.52.41

8M plod this morning

Padams: the Ashton Court is one of the toughest in the country - if I ever set an outright pb there I know I'm due an even bigger pb on the roads - so I definitely view it as a separate pb.

I've got a 5 mile race in December, ES, so there is still time for pb number 11 or 12.  There is another in the same series on Thursday, but there's no way I'm racing 2 days apart this soon after a marathon (and as my fitness very gradually disappears!).

CW: PBs at 3k (once), 5k (twice), parkrun (once), 10k (thrice), 10M (once), HM (once) and marathon (once), so 10.  If I'm allowed to claim my 5000 as a pb, too, then 11.  A very nice year indeed.

Happy birthday, TJB.

Heal quickly, CW. Perhaps go to some steeplechase sessions if you've a yearning to clear gates well!

5k pb of 18.37 last night. Still soft relative to other distances but at least the pace differential from 10k pace is now 4s per mile rather than 2!

Fishy: sorry to hear that. Thoughts with you and yours.

Gul: damn! Hope the niggle improves soon.

On a lighter note, 5k pb last night of 18.37. Still my weakest distance as only 4s/mile faster than 10k pb pace.

I'm pretty sure a pint of water weighs a pound and a quarter - there's even the helpful fact it rhymes to remind you!
