Just a quick pop in to say it was nice to catch up with a couple of threaders in Berlin. Some impressive runs inc a few pbs.
Really enjoyed my trip to an amazing city; would definitely recommend it.
Just to prove you don't necessarily need to hit the right numbers in training. I had a pretty bad build up to this. A couple of weeks in Kos (Jul/Aug), got ill and bonking badly on at least 2 key long runs and struggling with anything at MP. Think the training must have 'gone in' anyway and a good taper helped: 2:43:58 (35 secs off pb) but had a slow 1st mile and a shocking mile 26 (30 secs off pace without really noticing).
