Lit - that's a lovely plate and it reminds me of my grandmother's old welsh dresser which was home to many similar plates. Infact, my grandparents were frequent visitors to Scotland so could be where they were from. I don't think she ever won a 1st lady prize though ... well done
Bob - nice video, looking good ... that Hannah Oldroyd needs to get some races in
DT - good luck with the diet. I've been pretty good with my diet the last 2-3 weeks, cutting out mostly bread and potatoes and eating more beans ( kidney, butterbeans et ) But mostly avoiding the stuff in the kids' goody cupboard After an inital drop of 4lbs which no doubt was a lot of water, i'm on target for 1lb a week over the next 10 weeks. Although i don't use it myself, i think the MFA is a good idea for highlighting how easy it is to get to a calorie target.
Skinny - good luck with the trip
My apologies for missing my time from my post but i did think that it would remain as an unknown with no time and was going to leave it at that and accept a pavement pb. However i've just had an email from the race director to say results are now sorted on-line and sure enough i'm now back to being a real person with a new 31 second pb of 17:43.
Skinny, Richard - the last speedwork i did was a 10k session in June, targeting a 10k race end of July. I decided around that time that sessions at that pace weren't doing my groin/abdomen problem any good so backed off and did a weekly threshold session for 3 weeks, opted out of the 10k race because i still didn't feel right and since a bit of a break / easy running couple of weeks in August i've been doing a weekly MP effort of 4-6M. So, no speedwork since June, other than a weekly spin session since start of August during which i have 5-10 mins where my legs turnover as fast as i can. I have been doing some decent miles though ( averaging more than last summer ) and have kept my long run mostly at 14-15.
