Hi everyone.  Think it's time to join the party.

Total ultra newbie here but with a few maras behind my belt. Got my qualifier sorted in York last week with 3:19 and met Poacher very briefly afterwards (the yellow vested knackered woman who was with Minni).

A couple of questions... I'm looking into booking the Hilton and not sure if I should go for the option including breakfast? Are there any special arrangements to serve it early on the day or is it too early to even think about it? I can always eat...

Also- what do you actually need to submit as a proof of qualifier? A link to the results? A certificate?

Sounds like it was a tough days in the office for everyone yesterday.

2Old- well done for keeping going and pulling it back, I can only imagine how tough it must've been.

Chick- congrats and hope you're feeling better today. I can totally understand... as you know I'm not a big fan of running in the heat myself!

DD- sounds like you enjoyed yourself. Well done!

Chick/ 2Old/DD- safe travels I can confirm I'm not going anywhere near airports this weekend. Have a great time and smash it!

Seville Marathon

WB- I've done Seville this year. You enter online here

I seem to remember the entries didn't open until later in the year...  Just keep on checking. They sold out much quicker this time round than in the previous years so I wouldn't leave it too long.

Hi everyone. What a day it was... my head is hurting for which I blame Minni.

Minni- you made the right call and you know it so onwards and upwards is the only way. It was great to catch up as always. Bring on the TR and some speedy stuff!

AA- great result considering everything you've been through. I'm glad I managed to spot you and hope didn't embarass you too much with my mad shouting.

Free- I was looking out for you and thought I must've missed you. Sorry to hear about the foot but you made the right decision. Get it sorted and I'm sure the next time you will absolutely smash it.

Ant- yupppeeee! Congrats on a new shiny pb. Very well done.

O4S- brilliant

Col- sub 3.15 well and truely smashed to pieces!

KFC- hope the legs don't take too long to recover. It was nice to catch up yesterday.

Jack- sounds like a very frustrating experience.

Had loads of fun spectating yesterday... what a day for it!

O4S- whoop whoop! Many congrats and looking forward to the report.

2Old- Well done on the last LR. Good pace!

Ant- I don't think racing a couple of 5ks will do you any harm. It doesn't take long to recover from them and as you say they're good sharpeners.

Free- hope your early morning intervals went well. I quite like doing them before work. It means they're out of the way and I don't have to spend the rest of the day obsessing...

Chick- good run and take it easy, sounds like you need to rest.

8m for me last night on the way home from work at just under 8mm with a few @ 7.40-7.50. I didn't push the pace or look at the garmin and it felt a lot better than the last few runs so hopefully the legs are waking up a bit. Rest today and parkrun tomorrow.

2Old- great report and a smoking half. Very speedy indeed.

Minni- glad to hear you're feeling better. Have a good one tonight.

I'm having a rather painful return to running which is what is to be expected after 2 weeks of drinking and stuffing my face with curries so I'm trying not to get too depressed about it (for now anyway). My two short runs yesterday felt way too hard and I had to reduce both duration and pace of my tempo run today. Rubbish!

Oompa/ AA- what do you mean recovered quickly? It's been a month since Seville for crying out loud! Which doesn't mean that I'm back to normal. I'm ok to resume training but as always it feels like I'm back to square one. 30min @ 7.50 today felt like a tempo effort... Sigh.

Next target is getting to grips with those pesky 10/5ks, then onto the TR and York.

AA- these things don't happen when it matters, fortget about it.

Barry- trying something different sounds like a good idea. Hope it works for you.

It's not a triple!!! Lol- double today and a tempo run tomorrow!

Chick- Seville was great I would very much recommend it.
