Super quiet on here - hope everyone is busy racing and celebrating!

12M with some sluggish 500m reps yesterday: guess I was still feeling the after-effects of Thursday's race and Friday's massage.  A much better 17M today, feeling comfy at an average of 7.49m/m.

OO: give yourself a chance - that marathon was last week, IIRC.  I don't usually even jog until the Friday or Saturday after a marathon and would definitely be slower than 20 mins for 5k!

12M with some sluggish 500m efforts yesterday and a rather better last 'long' run of 17M today @ 7.49m/m.

Hope everyone's races went to plan today

No, not doing Bristol, GBRM: too close to Chicago so that I'd risk achey legs on race day.  And this thread definitely isn't just for those who've broken 3 hours: I posted on here for 6 years between 2007 and 2013 before I finally bagged by 2.59  Well done on the 28.39 - speedy!

So, the autumn marathon season begins!  Best of luck to GD and MsE (hope the lurgy has shifted).

Sorry to hear your news, OO. Hope things are as ok as they can be in that sort of situation.

Prom Run (5 miles) for me last night.  A solid 30.29 and finished as 1st lady.  Legs still feel a bit tight and tired, and I'm a bit annoyed that a slow 4th mile into a headwind cost me a pb (6.17 when other miles were between 6.02 and 6.06 and pb is 30.20...) but I couldn't quite overtake the group I was with to latch onto the next group.

Anyone in Berlin this weekend?  (Apart from Tipptop, but he is not really racing...)

Prom Run (5 miles) for me last night and managed 30.29 for 1st lady.  Pleased apart from the 4th mile when I struggled a bit running into the wind and clocked at 6.17...  Otherwise my pb would have been up for grabs (it's a slightly soft 30.20).  Ah well.  At least the other miles were about 10k pb pace!  Breathing wasn't too bad but legs have yet to really feel the benefits of the taper, it would appear.  Pretty sure I saw SL rounding up an SLjnr for the kids' mile race, but didn't want to interrupt as you looked a little fraught!

Relish events can be a little interesting at times. They're well intentioned but a bit chaotic, based on my experiences a few years ago!

I don't think gels can go in hand luggage but haven't checked the regs recently - I tend to put them in my hold baggage.  Not that that is very helpful to you!

600ft in 3 miles was enough for me: that looks horribly tough, RB!  As does your commute...
