Yay Minni - great to see you back on here. I'd seen some of your running / swimming exploits on FB and was wondering why you'd deserted us!   What target are you setting yourself for London?

Sounds as though you might need a bit of a rest BI - that's a pretty exhausting schedule over the last few days.

6.5 miles for me this morning with some hill sprints - am staying in Blackpool tonight so will probably do some reps on the prom (tiddly on pom pom) tomorrow morning.

Wow Jools - fantastic stuff. Everything seems to be falling into place very nicely!

I'm still aching a bit after yesterday's exploits so just got out for 6.5 miles easy run to take me up to 58 for the week.

Welcome back Fishy - good to see you on here again.

Congrats on the podium spot OO - sounds as though you're right back into it.

Surprise parkrun podium for me as well - I was running in the Bear Grylls Survival 10K (i.e. a bit of running and plenty of obstacles such as monkey bars, walls, carrying heavy things so not really playing to my strength!) in north London so decided to try out the Gunpowder Park parkrun near Waltham Abbey. 

Settled into a good rhythm from the word go and found myself in a pack of 3 some way behind the leader who'd shot off. To cut a long story short, one of the guys was dropped with about 1K to go and then I managed a decent sprint finish to come in second.

Not particularly quick (19:45) but the course is allegedly 5.1K so probably worth 19.20/25 on an accurately measured course. Given I still had a bit of yesterday's 15 miler in my legs, I'm pretty happy with that.

Good luck tomorrow GM.

Back to watch the rugby and hoping for a better second half.

Gul - sounds like the best option would be to treat Mrs Gul to a trip away somewhere for your anniversary and then throw in that you're doing a marathon while you're there. On the other hand, perhaps it's not such a great idea!

GD - hope you didn't do too much carbo-loading this evening! 

Working from home most of today so an early start meant I could get a 14.5 mile run in before I turned the laptop on. Very pleasant mix of country lanes and trail (the North Downs Way) while the sun was coming up.

Planning on a double tomorrow of a parkrun somewhere in north London followed by the Bear Grylls 10K Survival Race as part of a team with work colleagues.

29116 for me - no idea what start / pen that puts me in, but it's far to early to think / fret about it!!!

9 miles for me this morning - great to see the low lying mist hanging over the fields.

That's wonderful news GD - hope everything carries on in the same vein.

VTr - I suspect that you'll smash sub-40 if the weather conditions are right. If it's any consolation we're having some lovely sunny days over the pond at the moment.

PJF - blimey. Can't remember the last time I went to a night club! Perhaps we should find something post Chandos in April. On the other hand, perhaps not.

A bit of travelling in the last few days saw me get a 5 mile fartlek run in on the outskirts of Nottingham on Tuesday morning, followed by an easy 5 miles along the canals in Manchester this morning.

All this took me to 223 miles in September, my highest September ever! Just over 1,500 for the year so hoping for an injury free autumn to break the 2,000 mark.

Great stuff PJF - you must be very pleased. Not sure I'd have fancied a techno club a a post race celebration though!

KR - to be honest, it didn't feel that tough. Just need to go a bit fast for a bit longer now!!

8 miles this morning with the middle 5 at an average of 7 min/mile. Was hoping to see the supermoon eclipse (??) but it was too cloudy, and probably a bit too late as well.
