Quick check in from me as a few name checks.

Great running from many on here and I can't name them all.

Marigold- fab my man and they'll be a Gold medal for the taking if you choose to go that way.

Old no 7- I was made up for you when you told me you'd negative split the race. Great to run with you for 90 mins or so. I always look comfortable but ask crab what I looked like at 23 when he got the international distress signal of it's not going well!

Hr- shame I didn't get to talk. Saw u at the start with Dids and you looked super relaxed. Great result.

SL- you've got the balance spot on. Wish I could have joined you for a few more!

Selbs- as u asked I went for the dan/ultra stu 9 min positive split. 1.22 at hw and ok, family were at 15 and at 14 started to read the signs. Held on the pace until I saw the clan but at 16 went boom. Held 7's until I saw them again at 19 where I stopped ran back and kissed the little one. They knew it was well over by then. Slowest second half since 2007 (1.31) and I didn't enjoy it. I normally love canary wharf but was hanging. Managed to struggle in with a sub 3 , 2.53. I did 45 seconds quicker than last year where I did 45m for 6 weeks and a neg split.

Back next year of course but will be happy being on a 2.59 bus. But will end up running with TR no doubt.

And yes I did get 98 for the medal.

Talking about odds Dan- Really fancy Geoffrey Mutai this year. He was 15/2 yesterday but missed out. I then saw on the London Marathon twitter feed he's aiming for course record. Just lumped on at Betfred at 6/1.

TT- All good thanks for asking. A few plates in the air but no change. You seem to be in good fettle for Ed.

Selb- Vlm and last real go at a PB. I'd take something around yours! Glad to see you are back to it a bit. How's the little one?

Usual strong performances in training and racing. Well done Padams

That BAC session looks a monster. Not sure it appears on the one TR emailed me.

After RH's fine performance, there is a hare and a windbreak off the FGFA!

 Dan- Sorry to hear that..

Well said Selbs. I agree. Where is mtr? Hoping he's ok!

Far too much potato pulling for my liking. 6m easy felt nasty but did smash it the day before.... Funny that! Not going to do 23 with 15@mp+15 just to make sure

Dids- nearly medal time

PP- almost time for a beer!

77.58- 2.46.24. Think we've discussed this a few times. Personally I think i'd need to to be just sub 77 but you never know on the right day!

Congrats Hans- Sensible decision after my fine cut in 2012 when little one came at 3am Weds morning (week early) having arrived back in UK midday Tuesday!!!

Piers- I'll second Hans' Mpila camp. We stayed there (2011) and did a guided 4 day tour where you sleep in a base camp in the bush for 3 nights. It was sensational though I would recommend a sleeping bag as despite the 4 blankets I was freezing. We then drove from there to Drakensberg and spent the weekend there after Comrades. We did a 4 hour and 8 hour walk and the second one left the legs worse than the race. There was no issue with driving the day after.

Been without internet for a week as away.

Just popping in to say a belated Well done to Jools. Chuffed for you after all this time. Did look up Wardi's  as well and was sorry to see the miss.

Some great results all round the last couple of weeks.
