Stand out performance from Madbark - chapeau sir!!!
Good to see KR building up the mileage for a particularly lunatic event and Speedy throwing in some decent mileage as well.
Far too much detail from MsE!!!
A mixed weekend for me - 15 miles up and around Box Hill on Saturday represented my longest run for nearly 3 months but my legs felt pretty heavy from the get go so I was a bit surprised to average 8 min/mile pace.
I might have been suffering from something as I felt pretty sh!t and generally lethargic yesterday, and canned the recovery run and today's easy run. Will see how I feel tomorrow morning before making a final decision about hitting the roads.
Longer term, I'm having second thoughts about Abingdon in October - it's one of those marathons that it's only worth doing if you're in decent shape and I'm not confident I'll be in that position in 8 weeks so I may try and sell my place and go for another marathon in November. Ho hum.
