Bad luck Kevin.  You definitely haven't let anyone down though.  There's always a next time!  

Westy, those links are interesting.  I particularly liked the one where they researched what helps people avoid the wall - I always use external dissociation (though I didn't call it that until now!), I find that observing what's going on incidental to the race keeps me interested and distracted.  I think this is why (so far) I have had a much nicer time in races than in training, when I am tuned into my body and what I am doing rather than being amused or distracted by other stuff.  The occasional 'check-in' and reminder not to be shit coupled largely with distractions seems to be pretty effective.

Madbee now appears to be running on Mars (second picture). I've heard that it's nice this time of year 

Haha, does look a bit other worldly now I look at it!  More grouse up there than I imagine inhabit Mars though...

Steve, sensible move with resting the unrecovered bits!  Core is good, I am feeling a bit of a difference for doing some.

NorthEnd, I recommend starting the shopping with family, then announce desperation for a cup of coffee and spend the rest of the afternoon in Costa or similar

Well done Scott, glad the legs are responding again

Deb, enjoy your 7 with 2.  I'm slightly envious of that feeling a few days before of anticipation!

Caz, sounds like you've been having a bit of a rough time.  Have some hugs and cheese on toast.

Everyone is away from work this week.  I am not, currently.  It's quite boring here on my own

This is what I did on Friday by the way.  I'd kind of decided no more long runs till P&D kicks off again for London, but I've done a bit of off-road running to try to mix it up a bit, and Mr Mad and I have decided we're going to do some gentle trail runs together - dump a car somewhere and run to it, explore further afield and enjoy ourselves.  This was Friday's exploring run.  Ankle is starting to feel better for avoidance of tarmac for a week - going to gym it tonight, then see how I feel at club tomorrow evening.

Enough waffle - this is what I'm intending to do more of!

Enjoy your much deserved Guinness NorthEnd. Doesn't sound like a fail to me at all, and glad you are taking plenty away from it. Well done Sir!

Well done boys!  Looking forward to hearing all about it.  Anyone know what Kevin's number was?  Weather sounded horrible...
