Hi Carrot- good to have you back. Sorry to hear things haven't been great, but the main thing is that you're on the mend. I'm sure it won't take you long to get back to where you were. A year off maras for both of us then!

2Old- no more CNBA fairy for you judging by strava. Yes, no pressure with the half. My half PB hasn't budged since January 2014 so it would be very welcome...

A bit of quality for me yesterday- 3m w/u, 1k @ 10k pace, 3m @ MP followed by 800m @ 5k pace with 90s recoveries. All easy now until Sunday.

2Old- sounds like you're enjoying some quality downtime.

Geoff- good luck with the ballot.

Barry- back in the game! For an autumn mara I can definitely recommend San Sebastian and Amsterdam. Frankfurt is another one on my list.

Bit of a taper week for me before the Hackney half this Sunday. It's heating up nicely... 23 degrees on Sunday- typical!

2Old- I was there on the green start, you clearly were not paying attention! Hackney half for me next on 8th May. I'm not so sure about the age thing, you're clearly still getting better!

Barry- I would agree with what the others say. Speed is clearly not the issue here so getting your mileage up and slowing down (can't add loads of miles and do them all fast) could do the trick but then that's not in line with your tri ambitions so I guess it's deciding what's more important.

AA- glad you're feeling better and I like your non running plans. Refocus will do you good and you'll come back stronger.

Geoff- enjoy your rest day.

Nell- great report and congrats again on the pb. What's next for you?

HI Pinklady- hope you get your mojo back soon.

5 super easy for me today post yesterday's progressive10m. Gym tonight and rest tomorrow.

2Old- great report and well done to 2Old Junior as well. Sub 3 is definitely calling!

Chick ((())). Ouch ouch ouch. Do not lose hope though, stress fractures do heal! I know you must be gutted right now but it's by no means hopeless. Cycling and swimming sounds like a sound plan in a meantime to stay sane... and who knows you might get converted!

2Old- well deserved rest in the sun. Looking forward to your report. How did your lad do? Did he 'enjoy' the experience?

Free- sounds like a tough day... they tend to be when things don't go to plan early on. Good plan with switching to shorter stuff for a while. Rest up and I'm sure you'll be back to your best in no time.

AA- if that's what you call a 'good cry' you clearly haven't seen me yet raging post a bad race. Glad we found you and hope you're feeling miles better by now.

Progressive run for me today- 2m easy/ 2 steady/ 3@ MP/ 3@ HMP. Tough but somehow managed-phew! Hackney Half next Sunday.

Just popping in to say congrats to Malc again and what a great report. So so close, I have no doubt you will smash sub 3 hours next time. I am in total awe of how much you've improved since not so long ago when you were gunning for 3.30, you really are a true inspiration and always so supportive of everyone else. Awesome job.

Oh and apologies again that I almost missed you... Malc actually found me in the crown.... I clearly need to work on my spectating skills!

2Old- OMG fantastic time! Congrats, very well done. I saw you wizz past around mile 24 but by the time I shouted your name you were gone- woosh!

Barry- I could say well done, still a good time and all that but I know you're disappointed and I can totally relate. You WILL nail it eventually, just need to persevere. I'm telling myself the same thing! Hope the head is not too sore this morning.

AA- big hug. It was great to run into you after the finish and chat. Hope you're feeling a bit better today. Damn marathons know how to bite us in the bum sometimes. You looked fab in your outfit by the way! Enjoy the recovery, onwards and upwards.

Neil- fantastic time, looking forward to a race report.

Free- same for you, hope you had a good one.

I spent a few hours spectating on Victoria Embankment yesterday, it was hard work, I'm telling you! Saw AA and 2Old but missed Barry. All in all great day out.

Congrats everyone, hope the legs and heads are not too sore today. Enjoy the recovery.

Oh this is getting exciting.

Beetroot shots, my favourite!

Barry- Yes, I will be there spectating, probably somewhere on Victoria Emankment in the last few painful miles. Happy to meet up afterwards if anyone is keen, would be rude not to!

Free- hi (waving). Sorry to hear not all has gone to plan. Will look out for you on Sunday.

Keep those numbers coming for the tracker.

Track for me this morning (I know I know, a bit risky so close to Sunday). 6x 800m at 10k pace followed by 6x 400m at 5k pace with 30s recoveries. Not too tough although 30s recs are pure evil! You might as well not bother!

Yup, taper madness in full swing!

Jamie- I'm with AA. 1.43/ 1.44 sounds about right. You went off too fast. Saying that providing you did the training you should be capable of closer to 3.15 as 2Old said, based on your half. I ran 3.26 off a 1.34 half the first time I managed to break 3.30.

Geoff- I did York in 2014, it was great. Not pancake flat but in a way I preferred that. Very well organised.

Chick- ouch, wishing you speedy recovery. Don't indulge too much in those painkillers...

AA- it's not easy being a celebrity but someone's got to do it!

Rest day for me today and some sort of quality session tomorrow before work. Not sure what yet, need to give the boss a nudge.

2Old- I am sooooooooo NOT tempted! Can see no attraction in putting myself through all the pain without a decent chance of a PB. Hope you get some sleep in the next couple of days/ nights and feel back to 100%.

Barry- nice pre last run. Sounds like you're all set. 3.15 or bust!

AA- proper taper madness there! Almost there just rest up now and stop doing intervals!

Nell- far from ideal that work schedule. Try to get some naps in!

10m for me this morning with 7 @ MP (whatever that is) which all came out at or under 7.30mm. Happy with that.
