BIG congratulations to both moof and Bike It for their respective marathon performances. Both impressive in their own way.  I heard it was a windy day but saw some fast times so well done!

A bit belated but I am hoping today's racers are going well!  *wills on the marathoners*

Congratulations, Marrows!

And commiserations to Abbers (although you sound better off away from that charming lot) and to SJ's toe.  Ouch.

Belatedly but needed nonetheless - well done to Gul and Birch.  Both sterling efforts and you should be very proud of those times.  The best bit is you are both in one piece to capitalise on the fitness for the next cycle of marathon training!

What's going on TAR? Achilles again?

Gosh PMJ.  TMI for me to compute. All I know is the more quickly I pick my feet up, the better they fall into place for the next stride and the less time they spend on the ground soaking up impact injuries.  Now if Garmin could tell me how to fix my pelvic tilt so I fully engage my glutes, I might be interested in the things again.

Speedy - promising news!  Let's hope the physic can get you up and running well again soon.  It must feel good to be out again?

Lorenzo - nice long one there, neighbour. 

It seems that OO just can't be beaten on those shorter distance WAVAs.  Imagine what they would be if he was female!

BI - 4 is a terrible terrible number. I avoid it at all costs.  Now, show me an 8 and you've got me interested! 

Nicely coming back Leslie. Steady and slow is the way.  

Three short ambles for me last week post HM.  The right achilles is quiet now and the left one much better and looking less cankle like I am going to spend another week running easy but try consecutive days.  Throw in some yoga, barre class and pilates and hope that I can resume marathon training the following week with my new focus being the Thames Meander on 1 November.

That sucks (as they say in California). Really sorry to hear that, dude (ditto).

But this means you can now unleash your inner Ian Thorpe. Or maybe not him. Your inner Michael Phelps. Actually, not him either.. These swimmers all seem to be encumbered by negative association. How about your inner Lance Armstrong? Oh, no, er maybe Miguel Indurain! Or, if you favour a more alternative look role model, Wiggo! Ta da!

SJ - thanks for the sentiment.  I am sure it will bounce back but road running exacerbates it currently so I am going to stay away from racing on tarmac for the foreseeable.  Well, anything more than 10 miles anyway...  I need to work on my form in the meantime.
