Macca! Bloody awesome!! I remember you trying to crack 3:15 not that long ago, and now you're flying round under 3!! Amazing work

Well done Millsy, consistent as ever. Ollie too, great running, and as usual speedy work from Reg.

Overdone it?

It's ridiculous isn't it. I clicked the register button at 5:57 and was almost 1000th in the queue. I know it's a good quick one but amazing that people are so desperate to get in (me included, obviously ).

How did XC go, those who were doing it?

Up at stupid o'clock on a Saturday to get into Brass Monkey... So I think I will get dressed and jog over to parkrun - where I will not be wearing a HR monitor so probably won't explode.

Good luck XCers today and racers tomorrow.

Well I thought I was up and out fairly sharply this morning, but Tom had already been and come back by the time I dragged my lazy self out at 6:15...

Good luck Macca and Millsy!

I like them because I don't do any races short enough for it to matter whether or not I took an extra 3.2 seconds to turn round a cone.

Actually that all sounds really wrong with the boarding school talk.  I'll get me coat.

I use a leather belt on the glutes - painful but it's a good pain ..... hold on, wrong thread.

Which thread were you looking for, exactly, and why don't I know about it??

. Careful you don't turn into a triathlete Madbee, heaven forbid.


No danger of that HA.  This basically sums up my attitude to swimming:

Oops, x-post with John there - well done John!  That sounds like a properly tough race, I think you did pretty fantastically to pull a PB out of the bag there.  Sure you will get the sub 3 soon with the training you have put in.

Hurrah for Tom.  That sounds great You'll be back to full fitness in no time, do try not to rush though, easy does it...

NE, wow, a run with others and then the motivation to do LT??  Well impressed.  No idea how to get men to admit that they can't run 5K straight off bat  (I suspect this is the problem)

Enjoy your hols Menn.  Not that I can totally get my head around you going away on holiday, because you live in Wales which IS on holiday  I used to love our Welsh trips as a kid

Ramjet, impressed with your strength dedication.  I've actually started doing some yoga lately and while it's not exactly appealing as an activity compared to running, I do think it's helping with flexibility and balance.  I have to confess that I'm not exactly clear what an audax is myself, though I can promise you I will not be doing anything competitive with it!  We are planning on a pub stop halfway round. Cyclists are a funny bunch - all they seem to think about is bits of bike and food 

Macca, hope you have not got plague.  Good luck for Sunday, Millsy too.

10 miles later.  Felt quite bouncy last night, hope today will be similar
