Trial by media innit. Just because he's in the public eye should the public decide his punishment rather than the courts? The law is there to ensure everyone is treated equally.

On the other hand, he hasn't yet served his sentence.  He still has 2.5yr probationary period.

Do Droitwich Muddy - you can pace me for a sub 1:2x

DT - Slightly envious, as your concern is how can I fill my time with training, whereas mine is how can I fit some training in this week (oh, woe is me).

Lit - You have to get ill sometimes, it's only fair.

Charlie - what did the impromptu celebration involve? The alpkit Gamma is a running specific version.  It has a red light on the back for running on roads.

Skinny - glad to hear that your recovery continues to progress.  No parkrunning.

Any news from Pete?

Are ultra runners fast or plodders?

Ultra, Marathon and 10k all come under the 'long distance' banner.  There may be a more marked difference if you compare with middle distance performance, where top speed becomes an importance factor.

Good reports chaps and good running from both of you given the circumstances.  Is The Hill the ramp out of the Bristol Rd underpass?

Marrows - On Saturday night my stomach wasn't big enough for how greedy I was.  I went out for a mates birthday. Due to the numbers involved we were served of a three course prix fixe menu. I was sitting next to a lady with a very small appetite and ended up eating at least 50% of her meal, including two whole puddings.

Tough conditions today.  Quite a few disappointed marathoners at Abingdon.  

Plan for this morning was 5 miles at HMP, but I beasted myself on mile 4, which was a steady climb straight into the wind, so continued after that at a more leisurely pace for a total of around 12.

btw - I ran a double yesterday:  Three miles back from the garage after dropping McF's car off, then 5 miles on my way to pick it up in the afternoon.  Feel like a proper runner now.

That's a real shame Fatty.  Funny things, backs: Doesn't take much in the wrong direction to put them out.  Hopefully it will be sorted out relatively quickly.

DT - I thought you'd dismissed Telford due to uncertainties around the course measurements?  A few from our club were discussing it the other day:  seems it is considered to be a quick course (and not generally because it is short).

Train according to your current ability.  The result will be what it will be.
